The biggest reason to buy prepaid Xbox Live card is the renewal process that happens when you don't use one. If you order X-Box Live through your system, it'll renew every time your subscription runs out. This wouldn't be a problem except that it's not that easy to cancel. Instead of canceling through your system, you have to go through the hassle of actually calling X-Box Live support. Even then, depending on the representative you get, you may be hassled to keep your subscription because they really don't want you to cancel it. I'm guessing that's part of their job to convince you to keep it, but it still is frustrating to the person that is trying to cancel it. You'll have to go through this process every time you want to cancel if you don't use a prepaid card. Is that hassle really worth it? I don't think so. Therefore, avoid all of the problems by simply buying a prepaid card. You won't be sorry. UPDATE: (3/6/2011): I updated this review about a year ago pointing out that you could disable the subscription on X-Box Live's website. As of this update, they've taken that feature away again. I'm guessing Microsoft must have seen a major increase on people who canceled their subscription, thus now forcing you to call their customer service hot-line again to cancel. Even if they add it back, just save yourself the hassle and get a prepaid card. You never have to worry about dealing with customer service that will try their hardest to get you to stay on as a recurring customer.

If you own an Xbox but don't have a Gold subscript

by Charlie on 12/22/2011

In my opinion Xbox LIVE Gold is the one of the best features about your Xbox 360. Without it you may as well just get a PS3. Being able to play on a reliable network with your friends and other people, streaming music, movies, and downloading Xbox LIVE Arcade games is the reason why the Xbox is the best gaming console out there right now. I also got my 12 month sub card the next day even though I selected 2 day delivery, way to go Buy.com! Read More

Great price

by Nate on 1/1/2012

The price for this was exellent, best I could find online. My only complaint is that you are paying for a subscription number on a piece of paper. They should email the customer the subscription number instead of using fedex to ship a piece of paper (which takes up to a week) It would have been perfect had I been able to use the membership immediately via email, instead of waiting to get the physical code mailed to me from across the country. Honestly I'd rather pay the extra 10 bucks and get it on ebay if I could use it right away. Read More
