I just bought a new 12 month Xbox Live subscription with 800 microsoft points but I don't want to activate it until around the end of October (for Assassins Creed 3 and Halo 4 releases). I was wondering whether you have to activate the card within a certain time limit after buying it? because the end of October is over 3 months away and i don't want to waste 30...

I had a couple of 1600 codes that I found that were over a year old and they still worked. Same with some 48 hour codes... Not sure about 12 months, but from what I've read online it does not expire.

To my knowledge the only codes that expire are usually promotional codes won through competitions etc

Yeah I don't think they would expire and if they do it should say it somewhere.

You can stack up to 3 years of Gold at a time, if that helps.

Like said, only promotional codes have a time limit. this goes for the MS points you get from the rewards site (I believe they last for 6 months only).

Yeah this is what I thought too.

Done this as well, nothing like finding good deals and just stacking them up!
