By far the easiest thing to do with your Xbox live subscription is to punch your credit card details into your Xbox the first time you use it and then just let it auto-renew each year, as long as your debit/credit card doesn’t expire and the payment goes through you are guaranteed uninterrupted access to the service.
But, and it’s a big but, by managing your subscription in this way you will be paying the absolute maximum price every time. Fear not though, there are alternatives.
A Xbox Live Gold subscription costs £39.99 direct from Microsoft, but you can purchase an equivalent membership card from Amazon for £37.93 and although that isn’t a massive saving it’s still worth doing and adds up after a few years.
However, our CDKeys.com have an even better offering where as you can purchase an electronic code to give you a 12 month subscription for just £32.90 at the time of writing which represents a significant saving. We’ve only heard good things about this service and have used it ourselves previously. For that reason, CDKeys.com gets our seal of approval as the best source of Xbox Live Gold subscriptions.
