Xbox Live Gold Subscription – Price Comparision [Xbox 360]

Gold Membership. As much as you may hate paying for it, at some point you are bound to cave in and upgrade to the full Xbox Live experience. At £39.99 a year you pay a fairly large price. Certainly if you have multiple people in your family/household as you have to pay for every individual.

The aim of this article is to show the different options available for subscribing and the different prices they hold. I’m mainly going to go on cost per month but I’ll also take into account total price as well.

14 Months Offered occasionally through Xbox Live and you probably already need to have had an existing gold subscription that has since expired.

Total price: £39.99, Monthly Price: £2.86

13 Months Offered in retail packaging as a 12 + 1 month free deal.

Retail: Total price: £39.99, Monthly Price: £3.08

Best Offer (ebay): Total price: £28.99, Monthly Price: £2.23

12 Months – Available from your Xbox or as retail cards.

Retail: Total price: £39.99, Monthly Price: £3.33

Best Offer (ebay): Total price: £25.99, Monthly Price: £2.17

3 Months – Available from your Xbox or as retail cards.

Retail: Total price: £14.99, Monthly Price: £5.00

Best Offer (ebay): Total price: £10.85, Monthly Price: £3.62

1 Months – Available from your Xbox or as retail cards.

Retail: Total price: £5.99

Best Offer (ebay): Total price: £5.49

To get the cheapest prices you need to forget about using Xbox Live or receiving retail packaging. There are quite a few merchants on eBay who have classified listings at the best prices on the internet (that I can find anyway) but they will either email you a code or post you a photocopy of the card. Tacky but cheap.

My top picks are:

Check out this web page for printable PDF gift certificates that you can use for birthday and christmas presents. Available in 12+1, 12, 3 and 1 month certificates. These are a little bit nicer than a printed email or a photocopy of the card.
