gold membership for a dollar, one per console?

#1WalkerRDPosted 10/28/2011 7:19:50 PM
I just saw the gold membership for a dollar deal and picked it up for myself. I then switched over to my brother's account so I could get the deal for him too, but it was gone. Is there a limit to how many people on a console can get the deal or something?

Is he already a Gold member? Not exactly sure, but I thought those deals only appear for people who are just on Silver or whose Gold is about to expire.

It's not once per console because I did it twice on the same console but when I tried for a third time the option was gone and was replaced with 3 months for $9.99.

I wish I had that offer.

Right now I'm being offered $36 for 12 months.

That's still not bad. Only $3 a month? Hell, I'd take it.

If I log on and see anything of the sort, it's a done deal.

I only got it when making a brand new account. It gives you a 1 time only offer of gold for $1. It's not something you can get with your current account, it's just to get new players 'hooked,' probably.

I've seen it offered even when I had a month or two left on my subscription.

Maybe they changed it. *shrug*

Unfortunately, it would probably end up being more like $12 a month. I don't use multiplayer on the 360 a lot. I just want it so I can play L4D2 with some buddies during Christmas break and so I can play Mass Effect 3's horde mode when that releases.

So for me, it'd actually cheaper just to buy single months at the regular $9.99 price.

Those deals offered are promotions. They change constantly and sometimes there is more than one running at a time. The circumstances in which you can see each deal varies. If they overlap, you can still only see one offer at a time.
