FAQ:
_________________________________________________

Q: What do you mean by GOLD MEMBERS ONLY?
A: GOLD members are paid subscribers to Xbox Live. These deals are only available to them.

Q: I'm an XBOX LIVE FREE member, can I use a 48 hour trial to get the GOLD discount?
A: No. 48 hour codes only work for online play.

Q: What about the promotional GOLD weekends?
A: No. Those only allow online play.

Q: How long is this deal going on?
A: One week (seven days) unless otherwise noted.

Q: I'm not seeing the sale price, what is going on?
A: If the deal is live, make sure you are logged-in to Xbox.com or your 360 with a GOLD account. Sometimes there is a disconnect between Xbox.com and the Xbox Dashboard.

Q: When do the deals go live?
A: Deal of the Week deals go live on Tuesday morning usually around 9am EST. (Monday's before 3/22/11)

Q: What about all the other sales and promos?
A: Microsoft has gotten into the habit of offering other sales and promos as well as the Deal of the Week. I list them in this thread to reduce clutter on the Deals Forum and to help maximize your savings.

Q: Should I have any concerns about waiting to buying something on sale?
A: After a few years of experience with Xbox LIVE. I think you might want to know:
-Items can be pulled from Xbox.com with little or no notice (Games, Content, DLC)
-If you wait for an item to go on sale, it might never come (and the item(s) could be pulled)
-End dates can be flimsy. This could mean the sale is cut a bit short (RARE) or run a bit over (Happening more often). Don't count on this happening if you are on the fence. You might miss the sale.
-Consider keeping 800-1200 points on reserve for a 1-Day sale. They are rare, but you will kick yourself if you miss it

Q: What if I don't see a sale/promo listed here?
A: Post it and PM me. PM's are the best way to make sure I see the missing info and get this thread updated.

Q: Are there any other links I should know about?
A: Yes.
CAG Xbox 360 Forum - Discussion on games and lots of gaming groups to join.
CAG Xbox Live Free Stuff Thread - Great thread and discussion of the free things on Xbox Live
CAG Xbox Live Subscription Thread - Great thread about the deals for Xbox Live on the dashboard
CAG Xbox Live Code Trading Thread - CAGs trading XBL codes.
Xbox Live Rewards - Sign up here to get "rewards"/rebates for Xbox Live purchases and other things. New offers every month, CAG discussion here.

Q: What are your sources?
A: Sources:
-Majornelson.com
-Xbox UK DotW
-Xbox US DotW
-Xbox JP DotW
-Spylon's Xbox Live Database
-Various Publications/Blogs

Q: Do you mind if I copy this info and post it somewhere else?
A: Not really, but I hope you would respect my hard work enough to mention where you got it from and not just straight copy and paste my posts.

Q: Do you have a list of the older sales?
A: Yes. These are all 7 days unless, otherwise noted.




Q: [I]I noticed some talk about "compilation discs[/I][I]?" What is that and is it cheaper?[/I]
A: Some of the content from Xbox Live has been put on retail discs. Some discs have XBLA games, others have several pieces of DLC from one game. Depending on what content you are looking for it you might want to consider looking for a retail disc. Some CAGs and myself have put together this handy list. When an item that can be found on one of these disc goes on sale, a disc vs D/L discussion will likely come up in the thread.



Thanks for the input/help:
[I]Chrono Gear, jputahraptor, sanger, salty tbone, BudzMcGee, kburns10, typical guy, [/I][I]Easy Reader, mxpowar[/I]

Q: [I]What about the old threads?[/I]
A: Old thread links:
2010 - Part 1
2010 - Part 2

Op, you might want to add something to the first post about having people use thread tools to subscribe to this thread to cut out or head off some of the "zomg new thread" posts that inflate the thread and add nothing.

Awesome as always. What about some of the other stuff on sale like SWTFU2's two items, BFBC2 Onslaught etc, Burnout Paradise content, Dante's Inferno content?

BTW, how's BP's Big Island? Is 560 worth it? What about onslaught?

Big Surf Island is fun! I'm enjoying it. It's nice to get some new places in that game. I figured they gave me a ton of free DLC. 560 is worth that island.

And Onslaught is great if you have some friends to play that with. If you're going alone, nahh.

Just an FYI as to how I see the thread will go from here:

1) Some of the stuff from 2010 fall off the thread. I will list them if they list a "Gold Member Price", b/c it's still a sale. Also, any sale that started in 2010 won't make it into the 2011 sale list because I listed it in the 2010 thread. It's "leftovers".

2)I dumped off the price drops, since we covered those pretty well during for the last thread, but they are not going to be covered. In the future they will be in post #2 for 7-14 days (depends on the how many posts the thread is getting).

3)Speaking of Post#2. That will be the "other sales". Hopefully some of that 2010 stuff will finally go off sale so we can trim it down a bit. Like I said in 2) I will list the Price drops there and the "promos" The ESPN promo is only still there b/c there is still an opportunity to get that avatar gear. It will fall of 1/11/2011. Other promos will be listed there such as rebates and the like.

4)I'm going to add a link off to Metacritic for XBLA and DLC large enough to get a review. I'm not sure about videos. We can always throw those up in the discussion. I encourage any CAG to link of to groups/clans/game nights/etc that you may influence your purchase.

_________________________________________________




Is the SWTFUII DLC still on "sale"? A CAG said the game's title screen listed it as only at that price till 12/31/2010. I'd imagine when most employees come in tomorrow it will be a little more clear.

I'm starting to the the Lost and the Damned is a price drop, so that might fall off in the next couple days.

Thanks for all the kind words.

Still 80MP on Xbox.com, although I guess you're waiting for confirmation in the morning.

Thanks for your efforts in keeping these threads updated, reddjoey.

Any chance, for reference sake, you could include the list of 2010 sales somewhere in the FAQ? I was going to suggest linking to the post in the old topic, but you've removed the list there.
