Hi everyone. First I want to note that I hope this is not against the ToS of GameSpot. I am not sure if this is old or not but its still good to inform people that are not aware. You can get a free month of Xbox Live Gold by using these simple instructions.
- Sign up for Xbox Live Silver.
- Choose Xbox Live Silver Membership for $0.00 even if you like to have Xbox Live Gold.
- It will ask you if you are sure you want to continue with only the Silver Membership.
- Choose the "Keep Silver" option to continue with the set-up.
- Then it will inform you that you are now eligible for a free 30 day Xbox Live Gold Membership.
- Enjoy the free trial and make sure to keep the upgraded Gamertag account.
