Xbox Live Silver Member Dashboard Deals watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi. I'm a silver member and was wondering if anyone had seen any offers for Xbox Live on their dashboard recently? I've been waiting a few days now and I've not seen anything... do they still do them?
    Thanks in advance.

    Are you referring to deals and discounts to upgrade to Gold?

    If so, it takes more than days, you'll have to wait months, although a couple of days ago there was a free weekend, so you could've played multiplayer (and used all the normal features Xbox bans peasents from using) Friday - Sunday. Plus, Xbox One is about to be released, so there shouldn't be any deals when that's released any time soon.

    A trick I've done is use a trial card or buy a cheap membership on Ebay and let it run out, sometimes for the next few days they'll give you a special offer like £2 for 2 months. Though not always, and I don't upgrade enough to Gold to see if it really works that way, especially as I have a PC and most multiplayer is boring or has appeal for a limited amount of time.

    There are Deals on the 360 but just not on the dashboard. I'm currently a silver member myself.

    They only way I have found deals are the free games that Microsoft game studios have produced. (Doritos Crash Course and the like; but you have already probably tried them.) These free games are downloadable for silver members... However the two free games Microsoft offer a month are not (Halo 3 at the moment) not even a gold trail will give you eligibility to have these games you have to have a 3 or 12 month membership.

    you will get the odd advert as well for stuff like now TV but there not much of a deal.

    Xbox were also offering one TV episode and One film for free recently - but I don't tend to venture onto the TV tab on the dashboard. I can't properly comment on this either as I don't know which programme or film they were offering for free and even if the offer is still valid.
