If you’ve been holding out on renewing that Xbox Live Gold subscription, now might just be the time to strike, as Gold cards are on sale at at Amazon. A year’s worth of Gold will run you $35.96, or you can get three months for $18.76. Subscriptions normally go for $60 and $25 respectively, so buying now saves you a nice chunk of change – about $24 for a year (or 40 percent) and just over $6 for three months (or 25 percent).
While players can get online with a free Silver subscription, Gold membership is required to utilize most of the service’s basic functions – online multiplayer, group chat, Netflix/Hulu streaming and even Facebook/Twitter apps require paid membership. So what are you waiting for? Go nab yourself a card and start playing!
