According to Xbox, when a player creates a new account, he can only take advantage of the one month free trial once. Xbox tracks the gamertags of each player and prevents people from using more than one free trial on the same gamertag. If a player is willing to change his gamertag, he can open a new account and use a free trial on that account.Know More

Players can save money on their Xbox Live Gold membership by buying discount membership cards. These cards can be purchased for three, six or 12 month periods. Buying one of these cards is sometimes cheaper than paying for the service monthly.Learn more about Gaming Consoles
