"If you can't find a 1-year card for under $34.99, you're doing it wrong."

I hear random variations of this statement all the time, but want to know where everyone's been finding lower-priced cards.

The only thing I really disliked about X360 was that live was bludgeoning me for $24.99 all the time (often before the 3-month period even ended). I've long since sold my 360... but the integration of Windows 8 and Windows Phone in Xbox Live gaming has re-ignited my hunger for the achievement hunt... and if I can find truth behind this way of thinking, I'd be willing to give Xbox 360 another shot...

Just with two minutes of quick searching. Also both Amazon, and bestbuy had them for 34.99 last month although for a limited time only.

There`s a much better method than paying $35.

Just go on this message board, or any top 10 game message board on Xbox 360, and ask for a 48 hour code.

That's not true Gold, that just gives you access to multiplayer, it does NOT give you access to all the rest of Gold's perks, especially where most Apps are concerned.

You can find deals around that price almost all the time. Remember the days where people were saying anyone paying over $12 a year were idiots? lol.

That was only when Microsoft was offering $1 for 1 month consistently for at least a year.

Last month Best Buy has had 2 $34.99 deals. Newegg had the same deal a week ago. Buy.com has $34.99 all the time on EBay. Seriously, all you have to do is go to Slickdeals/gaming section every few days and you'll find the deals. You'd have to be the laziest person to not find a deal on XBL cards.

I got my XBOX in 2010. The first time I activated Live I pretty much just called and told them I would be paying $40 for 1 year or they could cancel my auto-renewal.....they agreed to it. After that I got 2 cards on eBay and just recently got another at Best Buy for $34.99. I would never pay full price for Live.
