    it re-subscribes your gamertag after a year anyway, which is £40.

    Does it re-subscribe you if you used a promotional card in the first place?

    He knows it re subscribes and doesnt wanna pay m$ another 40 quid.

    The bennets link works out at nearly 35. I read on here that dixons/currys have them selling off for 14.97! just need to find the shops with them in!

    I couldnt find a store a couple of months ago so good luck! I doubt the offer will still be there to be honest.

    Play have pgr2 + live for £25

    I reckon that pgr2 + 12 months for 25 squid is prob your best bet and then try and sell the game for a fiver which still works out at half price so its not too bad.

    if you already have a live gold subscription is it possible to add another 12 month top up card? that pgr2 with the 12 months for 24.99 just has to be bought at that price.

    ive got like 10 months left, has anyone tried to put another card on top, i mean will it cancel out the subscription you already have and start 12 months or will it add 12 months - giving me 22 months?

    cheers

    Yes.

    I haven't done it myself, but I have read elsewhere that others have and it just tags it onto the end of your subscription (no overlap). This only works for paid top-ups - you can't extend it via 'trial' offers.

    BTW, I never gave MS my credit card details, which is a sure-fire way of preventing them from resubscribing me automatically at full price. I bought my MS Live Points elsewhere in card form too.
