My Gold sub expired on March 1 and I had all intentions of going through with this offer at the END of the month, yesterday.
When I sign-in thru the website (NOT the link posted), I see both the FREE month and the $1 month.
It appears that they won't accept pre-paid Visa cards for payment. :( It's a no-go for now but I'll eventually get a cheap 12-month sub. in the coming weeks.
