Cool, thanks. I went ahead and purchased the free Gold trial..turns out that doesn't apply for GWG; you have to purchase a Gold subscription. It's my fault for not reading the "fine print" but, eh, whatever.

Another question: if you let your Gold subscription expire, does the "$1 for a Month" deal (or other similar deals) still exist? When I had internet and Gold, I would let it expire and purchase the $1/month or $2/month deal. If so, can you purchase it through the site? (I would always buy it from the dashboard.)

From what I can tell those dashboard deals stopped popping up a few months back.

Damn, that sucks. Oh well; $10 isn't much when free games are involved.

Most likely, judging by the time frame. Thanks for doing that.

Hey everyone, just got an X360 and I'm trying to optimize my game library building. I have a few questions that I need confirmation for if you don't mind. (some sources I checked are several months old so I wanna make sure it's still the case)

1st: I heard that you can benefit from "1 month of Xbox Live Gold" for up to 3 profiles per console, which would mean I could grab up to 3-months worth of games with Gold without any effort.

2nd question: let's say I sign up for gold today and grab whatever game is up now, I will also be able to grab the one from 1-15 July and the one from 16-31 of July. That's 3 games with 1 month of Gold right?

3rd question: Microsoft recently changed "deal of the week" to "deals with gold" which is bad, but concerning the "Games with Gold" does it still mean that those free games are to be kept forever, I've been traumatised by Sony and their disguised "rent for a few weeks program".

thanks in advance for your replies!

Correct, however, you must creat the XBL account on the console, decline to pay for Gold when it asks, then accept the free month, you also must connect a payment option to your account in order to accept the offer (as of February 2012).

Four actually, since both Charlie Murder and Super Street Fighter 4 are currently being offered, and potentially five depending just when the first game for August is made free (usually around 7PM the night before) and exactly when your Gold expires.

Why?

All it is is a name change, the DotW has always been Gold exclusive.

Yes, on the 360 you do not need to keep Gold to play the free games, or and you can freely redownload them when needed.

However, on the Xbox One, you do need to have an active Gold membership to play those free games.

Also, you can use the site to add the Xbox One games to your account even if you don't own one, just so you do have them if you ever do get a One.
