    i know this sounds stupid, but i just dont trust ebay to well.
    basically i want to get xbox live gold for around £20. is it possible?
    people always talk about searching for codes, but i dont know where the hell from. cheapest is amazon with £32.

    Look for xbox bundle games that include the headset and a 12 month subscription. You can sometimes pick these up for around £20-25. The codes also work on the 360 too (trust me, that's how I'm doing it).

    Apparently they had some bundles in stores at Toys r us last week, but that's only what I've read on another forum.

    Use the discount code ZQ4322 to order the 12 month Gold subscription over the telephone from LXDirect.

    The full price is £45 but the above code should give you £30 off costing you a measly £15 + postage and much 'safer' than eBay.

    Nice one - its still £40 and the code is for £25 off (same difference!) all went through fine. Tried similar with littlewoods and they wanted me to open an account and spend £60 to boot. I noticed on hotukdeals they said it was for a minimum spend, but when I called she didn't mention it.

    WIsh I could use it twice so I could get next year's sub too!!!

    LX Direct is Littlewoods? :confused:

    Oh well it worked for us both. I rang 08457 888222 and it cost £15.00 all in (with free P&P) for the subscription. We maybe got free postage as the Mrs is a member.
    Thanks again for the pointer :)

    Codes are here:
    http://www.vouchercodes.com/vouchers/littlewoods.htm

    Note it does say:
    "£30 Discount when you spend over £40 = ZG0333"

    Same company, different catalogue. The ZG0333 voucher on ukhotdeals had a minimum spend of £60 on it, and thats what flashed up on screen when I tried to order from the littlewoods catalogue (sub at £45 with free postage) - plu I had to be a new customer and open a credit account. I called back and ordered from the LXDirect catalogue with Kismet's code - sub still at £30, no minimum spend and code can be used by exisiting customers. Paid on credit card.

    Doesn't surprise me that we had different experiences with the same code - having used littlewoods before, the terms and conditions of their codes seems to depend on the eagerness of the CS rep you speak to!

    Don't know of any codes/vounchers for other than LX Direct but if it helps put your mind at rest I (and plenty of others on here) have used a company called NetDirectDistribution off eBay & they've been spot on with decent prices & emailing codes.
