Wow for 280 I may consider the Lady Gaga RB pack and I don't think I ever got around to that second Nirvana pack either.

How do you find these on xbox.com? That place is a mess when it comes to trying to search for songs...or else I just don't know the trick.
TIA

The 800 Microsoft points I got for spending 1600 points in October (I think, or whatever that deal was) hit my account today. Just in time to spend on the right deals...


Be on the lookout if you qualified.

It was 2,400. People have been getting theirs since the 9th but I just got mine as well, despite the fact that I spent 9,120 points in October.

Still showing up as 800 on the Marketplace



I'll definitely pick it up if it drops to 160 though.

The deals are changing every day. That deal is for Friday (typo or not.)

Hi Guys

I have a gold account with automatic renewal. If I buy this card do I use it at the time that my account will renew (feb-2011) or do I have to cancel the current account at that time and use this card?

No, if you input the code, it will stack and start the day your auto-renew was supposed to happen.
