EDIT: Sorry I'm late to the party again... this has literally just expired!
I can vouch for that trial working as gold for gwg on Xbox one.. I ran out of gold recently so I had a 14 day trial laying around. Sadly it's gonna end in about 2 days. But yes it is true about the x1 and trials.
Sometimes you just gotta pay to play!
The good news is!
Like angel98 said over at https://www.cheapass...eys/?p=12810157
Boxdeal has 1 year of gold for $29.99
$2.50 a month for a few games via GwG (2 per console now, is it?) along with all the other benefits of Gold, is a pretty good price to pay. I think I paid like $37 last year. So $30 for 12mo. is about the best deal I've seen anywhere so far, so I'm in for 1! EDIT: Glad I got one when I did.
Got the key about 30mins after Paypal authorized. Redeemed no problems.
