Dashboard is showing 12 months for the price of 4 advertisement, aka 12 months for $39.99. Don't know if anyone else is getting that as well, but check, just in case.


I have that ad too.. says it comes with some free avatar clothes.

They are comparing that to the monthly price of $9.99.

So why not just sell it at the "regular" $59.99 rate and say, "Hey Look! Get 12 months of Xbox LIVE for the price of 6! It's like getting 6 months FREE!!!" :razz:

I'd wait on a better deal away from the dashboard and NOT have to mess with the auto-renewal (on/off) issues.

FYI no "old style" $49.99 Xbox Live sub cards at the Best Buy in Minnetonka, MN (would be $34.99 after $15 discount).

Did you notice any other Midway games? The codes for the games that were taken off the Marketplace are still redeemable but I have most of the games already lol.

P.S. A thread like this should be updated daily IMO, because the prices change so fast. If there was still a sale on Amazon I would buy some but they're not on sale anymore... maybe someone who's willing should make a new thread? Just a suggestion.


Sorry, just saw this now, no I don't recall seeing any other Midway games cards, but to be honest they had so many different ones that I don't remember all of the ones that they had.

I second that. Give them a credit card at your own risk, Microsoft charges people without permission. Their customer service is dirty.

If you're still looking I grabbed one that I'll send you for cost + tax.

They charged you tax? Btw.. I'm also looking for a card (preferably Joust, but I'll take any) but don't want to pay more than $35 heh heh. :lol:

I looked at my receipt again and the short answer is no tax, my bad.

Any other leads on a good price for a 12 month subscription? The only deal I found so far is Amazon for 44.99 with free shipping. But My xbox live renewal is on the Jan 1st. I am looking to get a code instead of the card shipped to me.

Apparently most Best Buys have the $35 cards.. I just can't get to one any time soon. Also.. the offer on my dashboard says $40 with a free gift, apparently an avatar prop of an Xbox controller.. that sounds kinda cool too.. decisions decisions...

Hmm per this for Best Buy, their cards are 44.99 too. It's just a matter of getting there and then home fast. At least I have a Best Buy close to my work. Thanks.

A deal on some points would be nice, but it looks like it's something that rarely, if ever, happens.

You can get free points through Bing Rewards.. also Redguy: Best Buy has $15 off 12-month cards, that includes both the new $60 cards and the old $50 cards.

I just went in on my last break to the Best Buy near work. Got it for $44.99. Was that deal online only or something else? I can find any details about the $15 off?

Check out the deals section of the slickdeals forum. The $15 off applied to both new and old cards, since you paid $45 that you means you bought a newer card. The older cards are on sale for $35 ($15 off of $50).

I've been taking advantage of Meijer coupons whenever they come around, which is only a few times a year. If not that I'm about to start making use of my TRU rewards coupons. I got $14 worth from all that holiday shopping.

Buy everything! QUICK!

My best buy now has the joust cards for $34.99 if anyone is interested. I'm picking one up for myself so if anyone wants one I'll pick another up. I already got a Madden one but I figure I'll pick up another for Joust.

Is the debit card worth it?


It kind of depends. I believe it is in my situation since I do some of my grocery shopping there and what not, and other than cash or check, is the only way I can use my 10% team member discount. So if I use that with the debit card, I actually get 15% off.

If you're going to only use it for points, it may not be worth it since you're only saving maybe a dollar, so while not great, it's still less than MSRP if nothing else. Plus it's good on anything in the store, so you could get some points and hot pockets if you desired.

I had to break down and get the 4000 points it seems that the discounts on the points are too far and few between. IMO

Actually, I believe you may misunderstand. Back around October it changed, but how it used to be, you signed up and saved 10% that day. When you earned so many points, you then get an additional 10% shopping day. Now, it's 5% off every purchase, every day.

So while yes, it is not as good as it may have been for that one day purchase, if you shop a fair amount at Target, it actually does add up.


You are correct I misunderstood. 5% on all Target purchases is a great deal assuming there's no other negative terms of service and you're a heavy Target shopper. As someone who has the Shell 5% card I approve of this.

I've bought a ton of points over the years and I rarely, if ever, pay full price. Not sure you have been watching close enough or long enough.

Wait how are you guys buying 12 month cards for $35. On best buy website the cheapest is $45. The last time i went to BB i saw a couple of those joust/madden 10 year cards, so your telling me if I go today and see those cards the price will be 35 and not 60 correct?

Thanks guys, I can't stand to see that sort of stuff on a public forum. I was about to report the post myself (glad someone else did) but the warning about sending an email to the ENTIRE set of mods made me hesitate. Funny, I had just traded with that guy earlier in the day too... Oh well, glad to see the community here won't stand for that sort of thing.
