Walmart has a $59 bundle of 1600 points and 12 month card here:

Shame, 4000 points would be the real deal.
It looks like they are just trying to get rid of their $39 12 month cards by upcharging you with point cards.

Does anyone think Amazon will price-match the Walmart deal?

Considering the amazon deal on 1600 points. Not great, but better then nothing (I have Prime, so free shipping). I wish they'd offer last minute free 1 day shipping for the holidays, but if not I'll just get one for myself and call it a day. :)

EDIT: Darn, the deal is over. Oh well. I'll wait for the next one.

Might have to jump on this. My gold is up in early January, and I've been holding out as long as possible for the best deal. I'll need those 1600 points sometime regardless, so might as well get 12 months for $39 while I'm at it.

Doesn't seem like a very good deal, especially since you're forced to buy 1600 points at full retail. I could swear I've seen multiple $39.99 deals on 12 months going on now, and one that don't require buying something else at retail.

I'm not sure if anyone else has seen this, but I just renewed my 12 month gold subscription right from the xbox dashboard for $39.99. Best deal I've seen so far. It says it will 'automatically renew my subscription' a year from now for $59.99, but you can cancel at any time to stop this.

I haven't seen anything like this but I'll keep an eye out. I've just seen $44.99. I know some people have seen $39.99. I don't know if it depends on how long you've been a Live member or not.

So are they days of getting a 12 month gold card for $20-$30 history? My gold expires in April but I would prefer not to spend $40 or more considering I play online like twice a month.

at $49.99 the lowest we seen was $20 which was very rare but there was alot of $30 deals but with the price increased imo lowest will be at $40 and a rare $30...

looks like most retailer still has $49.99 price tag and we might see alot at those prices for awhile...

I have to say though, at those prices I really don't think I will re-up my service for a year. I like my community of gaming friends but that is kind of a lot, and it leads to spending a lot more on games that are really only good when you are on xbox live.

This I am going to have to consider heavily in the next 4 months before mine is up. If I find it for 34-36 I would even bite on it. 40+ is just too much.

The XBL Gold price hike has me watching out for PS3 console bargains now. :D $30-33 a year was just barely palatable to me. Still, I've got until Feb 2012 to decide. :P

Maybe I just got lucky the past two years but I seem to recall xbox live codes going on sale right after the holidays so I'm gonna hold out until then.

Nothing wrong with owning both systems, I do myself and I use the MP on both platforms, but do realize that there is allot you take for granted on XBL that PSN simply doesn't do at all... (or doesn't do it right.)

Exactly why I own both systems myself, also Uncharted/Demon's Souls/Valkyria Chronicles made up my mind for me.

I haven't seen a deal on points cards yet either, typically how long after Christmas do they start showing up as deals?

Are there any cheap gold subscriptions? I just bought a X360 yesterday and just bit on a 4000 point card (for full price) on amazon...Are there any deals going for gold? I won't get my X360 until Wednesday.

Do you dudes know if there's any way to get around 110 points for free or cheap? Any contests around or anything? The prices on ebay for small point amounts aren't that great considering I can get 400 for $5 on xbox.com

If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them, thanks madams and monsieurs.

Bing Bar? Although you don't get the points immediately.

It's an option they give you on your :360:dashboard. It varies though because my offer shows up for $44.99.

Never heard of Bing Bar before.. I'll look it up though. I actually don't need the points immediately.. I'll need them by the end of January to get the last SSFIV pack.

Also, I too have seen the Xbox Silver dashboard ad.. I think mine is 1 year + 1 (800 point?) game for $40.. I think I'll take them up on the offer.

edit: whoa holy crap! That bing bar might be precisely what I need! Just installed it and it says I have 250 points already.. I'm gonna try to get more! Thanks for much Justin42!

I had an offer to renew on my dashboard for 40 dollars plus a free gift. It didn't specify what it was and I'm having trouble finding any info on this free gift. Does anyone know?

People here mentioned that the fine print says it is an avatar prop and it will be sent to your e-mail after purchase.

I think I might jump on the dashboard $40 deal... at first I was planning on waiting another week till my $20 ebay credit came through, but really.. if the best ebay price is like $48 or so, then it's not even worth it. Might as well use the ebay credit on some points or something. :[
