Not sure if this is widely known but ever since beta users began using the new dashboard it seems that ALL deals and advertisements have disappeared from our screens. I know I was usually getting a $1/month Gold offer each time my sub. would expire and I would revert back to a FREE Silver Membership.

Hopefully, this will help some of you out as I have just stumbled across it tonight.

Upon trying to download the new Gamespot video app. on my Silver account, I was alerted on screen that the download would only work if I were a Gold member. I clicked to "UPGRADE" and followed the prompts that after a couple of clicks brought me to a screen with 6 offers.

12 Months $60
3 Months $25
Redeem Code

1 Month $1 <<< 90% OFF Sale!
12 Months (Family) $100
No Thanks

Choosing the 1 Month for $1 would charge the CC you have on file AND turn ON auto-renewal. Those of us who have done this offer before know this and can easily go online and have auto-renewal set to OFF later on.

I'm currently choosing NO Thanks as I just redeemed a "2-day" pass ;) but I know next time how to get the $1/month.

Just wanted to let everyone know where the $1 months had been relocated to. :razz:

Go Silver!!! :D

EDIT: Wow, apparently now after choosing NO THANKS they are offering me a 1-month Gold TRIAL for FREE. :) Still declining but I hope I can get this offer after my other "2-day" pass is over.

Thanks OP!

Did anyone else successfully get the one month free after choosing "No thanks?" I definitely don't mind paying $1 for a month, but free would be even better.

Are you sure the free month was offered from dashboard and not your own console? Every new Xbox comes with two or three free 1-month trials and you might just not have used up yours.

I just tried this and it offered me full price, so YMMV.

The profile that I'm using was created in 2006.

I reverted to Silver in mid-August during which time I had the beta dashboard.

My tenure number on my gamercard was at 5 "years". Earlier this year I did take a $1/month AND a $2/2 months offers on the same account.

My console is also a refurb unit that I purchased back in March to replace my old RROD system.

I tried, "no thanks," and I didn't get a free trial, but I got the one month deal anyway.

I too was offered the one month free but could not get my credit card info to be accepted. I defaulted back to the $1/1 month option and that already had my payment info saved which worked fine.

Did you specifically download the gamespot app?

I just followed the OPs instructions and it doesn't NOT work.

I just followed them and the instructions did work. It was specifically the gamespot app, and after clicking through a lot of prompts, I saw the 90% off deal near the bottom of the options. Thanks, OP!

Can you detail how you found it?

I downloaded the app. Installed. Ran it. Clicked a video a and a prompt popped up saying I needed gold. Options were family or regular. Tried both, cheapest option was $9.99.

Yes, I did exactly what the OP did both times I attempted to download the gamespot tv app. I can see that it's not working for everyone so ymmv?

At what point does the option appear, before even running the app or after you're already in it?

I'm having the same problem... is it dead already? Doesn't seem very likely though.

After reading the original post it seems to me that this may be for people with the new beta dashboard? I'm not signed up for the beta and can not get this to work.

I am able to download the gamespot app without any prompt and don't get any offer for a trial when I try to watch a video. Has anybody not in the beta been able to get this to work?

It would be nice to get this as I see that the Toy Soldiers games and dlc are on sale. My gold just expired and I'm hesitant to resub as I practically never play online anymore on my 360 and am mainly on my PS3.

Once you start the trial then wouldn't the app just download and install now that you're a gold member. I don't see how this would work.

Sweet. I was just getting a little frustrated that I didn't have the money to renew Live right now. This totally worked. If they keep these offers going for silver members, I might just do this to renew until Microsoft gets wise.

I couldn't get it to work. I have a Silver now since my Gold expired last week. I was able to download the app no problem. After I tried to download other Gold only apps such as Hulu and Netflix but all they gave were the regular options to upgrade. 9.99 for a month...
