    Careful with this! I got into this offer two months agoa (europe here) and now I regret it. Sure they give you a month for 1 buck but then you need to cancel the automatic renewal otherwise they’ll charge directly your credit card. And you can’t cancel it on the website, you need to call the assistance and that rarely works. My account is now banned until I pay my last month, all due to this promotion=/

    Joel is right: Microsoft wants your credit card number and will keep renewing your membership on that credit card unless you actually call to cancel. And if your credit card expires and they try to renew, your account will be disabled because you didn’t pay and this means hell for you…

    In other words, it’s best to pass on those offers and “pay” you gold subscription with pre-paid cards bought in stores… The way Microsoft handles credit card paid subscription should be illegal (auto-renewal unless you call) but it’s not… yet…

    Just to make things clearer, don’t think that when you stop paying with your credit card, you revert to silver. It’s not what happens. Instead, Microsoft disables your account because they consider you owe them money from this auto-renewal.

    I got this offer because I had gold and let it expire.

    This deal has been around for over 6 months, because I did it myself then. Make sure you turn “auto renewal” OFF though.

    note to people not to miss the conception of this offer.
    It’s only for 1month to get you started for Gold Memersbhip, after that you will be charged the normal price, even though you want another month for $1 which is not possible.
