So i was trying to create a gamertag for my wife, but i couldn't create a new email through xbl. I tried everything but it says something about trying a new domain. I've tried hotmail of course, live.com, and live.ca. Anyone else have any ideas or have ran into this situation. Either way i'll end up just probably creating an email through hotmail, but i wanted her to get the free month of xbl. thanks guys

I had a Gmail account that I used when I created a 2nd GamerTAG last summer. I got my FREE month of Gold trial too.

just make up an email address on your computer and then when you go to create your new gamertag then it will ask you for your email, just enter the email you just made. you will get your 1 month free gold.

Ditto. I set up emails for my kids' accounts through gmail first, then created their tags from the 360 and they both got the free trial months. (I was stupid when I did my own, and created it from the website instead of through the box, and mine didn't get the free month.)
