Where did you hit no thanks at? I tried it on multiple apps


You need to be Silver first then DL any app. I tried the Netflix app.

Thanks OP.

I know I used an offer like that years ago. But can't remember how many times. Guess I am out of luck. Thank you for the help

I noticed last night that it is not showing me the $1 month either. It has changed to $9.99 on the offer wall. I choose 'No Thanks' and it takes me to the FREE month trial option.

I've got a CC on file that I have used for other FREE/$1/$2 months.

I've not committed to anything yet as I have a 14-day Gold pass ongoing.


I got the free month this way. Thanks!

Just got the free one 1 month. Being a CAG is the gift that keeps on giving. Just in time for Halo 4 as well!

Me too, thanks. I hope the $1/month or the $2/2 months start showing up again after my month expires.

There's a 1 month for $1 for Silver members available through the Vevo app. It will ask if you want to upgrade to Gold to use Vevo, and select no to get the $1 month deal.

Remmber to turn off auto renewal.

I think you need a credit card on file and/or need to be a former Gold member. Do you and are you?

what the heck.. tried the free month trick by going to d.load netflix and it seemed to work. Went through the whole process. Did that a few days ago. I just went to xbox live rewards to try to get some points... and it shows i am NOT a gold member. Anyone know what the deal is? I went through the whole sign up process, entered a credit card, ect, and it seemed to work fine but it now shows i am just a silver member

My rewards isn't showing gold either. Maybe it has to do with the 1 month "trial" gold. Sucks because I just bought a bunch of xbla stuff. We'll see what happens when I try for the $1 next month

I cannot get this to work at all.

My Gold subscription expired a few days ago and I've been trying since then to make this work. I found a video (below) that shows how it's supposed to work as described in this topic, but I can't get it to work like that.

When you select "free download" for Gamespot TV, it's supposed to bring you to the "You need Xbox Live Gold to continue." That never happens for me; I just get the popup telling me the app is 73.89 MB and to confirm download. If I use the app and try to play a video, I get another popup telling me to get Gold, but I only get the $9.99/month option. I've tried a bunch of other apps with the same result.

My account had Gold for 3 years and this is the first time I've let it expire since this method seems to work for 99% of people here. I'm also on the new Dashboard, but I don't think you can even use the old Dashboard if you're online.

Very frustrating. I'm about to give up and drop $50 for another year.

Glad to know I'm not the only one. But I don't understand why it seems to work for everyone else. Perhaps we have been XBL Gold subscribers for too long?

Not too sure why but I am able to download these apps with no prompt's. I have a "Xbox Live Free" account don't know if that differs from Silver. My account currently expired from a prepaid card.

It worked for me yesterday. I had had a gold membership for a while, and it expired in September. Got a 2 months for $2 deal, which just expired the other day, and then got 1 month for $1. Seems silly to get a longer subscription now that it's easy enough to turn off auto-renew online.

It's actually not silly, seeing as this method doesn't work.
