I want to bank on the offer by MS to get a year of Live for $40 before the price goes up in a few days. Unfortunately, it's not available to members currently on a price-reduced Live subscription, which I have. Here's the really annoying part: my promotional subscription ends on November 4th :( Would it be possible to cancel my subscription a few days early so that I would be eligible for the $40 promotion? I don't really see a problem with it because I've already paid for the subscription through the 4th, so they shouldn't care if I want to cancel it early. Let me know what you think and whether this is even possible.

Even if you cancel now, it wont be effective until the subscription ends on November 4th. It might work anyway though, couldnt hurt to try.

What kind of price-reduced subscription are you on?

It's a promotional thing very similar to the one they are doing now. I think it was 3 months for $10 or something.

So you do not see the offers on your dashboard at all? Where exactly does it tell you that you aren't qualified for the deal? :confused:

I'm asking because back in September I read that some people weren't seeing some offers until they redeemed a 1-month code. Hmmm.

I see the offers, it just tells me that my information can't be retrieved from the server when I try and sign up. It's really annoying.
