Naturally, my wireless is down... it's actually a free month, and not just that obligatory free month you can claim when you create an account?

Yep, its actually a free month. i haven't reedemed it because there is no billing info on her account. i don't know how long this has been running so i suggest people get on it quick.

Kinda old news really, but not in any position to be rude towards you. A moderator for some strange reason removed the thread, when there was nothing wrong with it.

The promotion was being advertised on Xbox.com, 2-3 weeks ago now. Nonetheless, for as long as this thread remains visible and doesn't get removed again, it's good news for those who have went silver or want dummy accounts online for boosting purposes.

Hmm, interesting. I haven't seen anything about a free month. But I have a Family account so maybe it doesn't apply to us?

Yeah I don't think it applies to people with gold either. I haven't seen this ad. Would come in handy mine is about to run out lol.

Good, it's nice that you can get a discount on game add-ons, or for microsoft points and xbox live. I can't afford it all the time.

I had a look before putting in my gold code. I couldn't find any free gold offer, but 3 months for 25% off. I'm from the UK so it may be the UK/European equivalent. Worked out about 11ish.

Just tried this on a couple of different boxes. No dice. One of them did pop for Gold for a month for a dollar.

Are we sure this isn't the usual "up to three accounts created on one xbox may get a free month of Gold"?

I'm Free (Silver) and I don't see it either. The first and only thing I see is "Buy 3 Months of Gold, Get 1 month FREE" (exactly how it's written with upper and lower cases in weird places) which started this week.

I haven't seen this myself but as confusing as the dash has gotten, I don't surf it much like I used to. But even if I did, I doubt I'd do it.

Well for new accounts. (Up to 3). But I think the implication here is that even if you've used that there was another free month of gold. Like the type you'd usually buy.

As a computer enthusiast and PC master race :p, the Metro UI is a fucking mess and is already an abomination in Windows 8 Consumer Preview as the default interface. We don't need a fucking touchscreen interface on a desktop.

Okay...I agree with the "we don't need no sticking touch screen" because I don't like fingerprints on my TV, even though I never said anything about it in my post.

These offers that appear on silver accounts depend on how long you have not been on gold. At first they offer a % discount over 3/12 months then it gets better the longer you leave it. For long ones they had lots of games + 12months for a huge discount. Everytime my gold comes up to expire I wait until I get a good offer pop up. Good if your not bothered about waiting.
