Xbox Live is going to have a free gold weekend running from September 17th - 20th. In addition they will be offering a special upgrade price of $29.99 and a free Halo Reach Noble 6 avatar helmet. Details can be found on your console Xbox Live Spotlight.


Edit: Looks like the offer is for silver and current gold member as well. Sorry about the confusion.



Edit: Information about the Helmet Code and Auto Renewal questions from Post 277

Im on the line with m-soft now......code will be emailed in 4 to 6 weeks from the date of the order. So, i ordered yesterday so the code will get to me on a month or so.

My current gold subscription expires in Nov 2011. This extra year i just bought wont show up until the current sub expires, that is when my card will be charged.

All rather complicated if u ask me. Long story short....wait to get the helmet code, then cancel auto renew

So current gold members who already have the service can renew for $39.99 as a special deal, but Silver members can now get a year for $29.99 plus a Halo Reach avatar helmet?

Thanks a lot, Microsoft.

Edit: Looks like it's for Gold members too.

Just like MS to screw everyone else that is on XBL. I understand that it promotes Silver members to switch to Gold, but it would have been nice for everyone to be included.

FYI, this sounds like it's ONLY for Reach owners, since the wording is sketchy. The article is written from the perspective that gold benefits will be unlocked for Reach MP.

Exactly.

At least make the damn helmet free to all Gold members for that weekend.

From what I remember, the Noble 6 helmet isn't unlockable in game like the other helmets, so this is one of the few ways to get it. It was given away at events like PAX and ComicCon. For us Gold members, we're out of luck.

Man, I was hoping this deal was for current gold members. I don't care about the helmet, but that's a great price for Gold. :(

Damn, that's a good price for gold. Fortunately I am set for 3 years :)

These damn guys were giving out Noble 6 codes every 43rd minute of the hour, but they were only giving out 3 codes at a time.

It was impossible for me to get one, as every time I typed them in to the "Redeem Code" page on Xbox.com, it said the code had been redeemed :bomb:

I don't know if they'll give out any more soon.

Perfect, we're having a family get together/Halo Reach party this weekend. Now we can play online instead of just locally. I'm assuming Reach has the same split screen/live capability that halo 3 does?

The avatar helmet doesn't bother me so much. My son can grab one for his account.

And people sold these on ebay for $30. I still have my 2 codes (tried and failed selling them, sigh).

I'm a gold member and I'm seeing the promotion on in the spotlight section on the xbox dashboard...now I've only used prepaid cards in the past and this promotion requires you to give MS your credit card info and turn on auto renewal...it says that my credit card "will be charged only after your current subscription expires", which for me would be some time in November

I'm now getting the Gold offer too -

It states "BUY YOUR NEXT GOLD NOW! Save 40% and get a free Halo Reach avatar helmet. Get 12 months for $29.99! Our best deal EVER on Xbox Live Gold!"

My Gold expires on 10/6, not sure if it's going to show up to people who are paid well in advance.

It's also letting me buy it right now, as well. It won't charge you until your current subscription expires, according to MS. Unsure as to how you get the helmet, though.

While it does suck that MS won't give the existing customers some discounts I can why they did it with so many people jumping on this console deal they have
