Arguments over ‘whether you should have to pay anything at all to Micro$oft to use its on-line service` aside, I found myself needing to buy and xBoX360 Live Gold membership (for the bf).
I decided there is no point getting 3 months for half the price of 12, and I didn’t fancy walking down to the BlockBuster’s Video to pay over the odds.
I didn’t want to wait for delivery either, its a pain in the ass and I don’t trust the post. I don’t want to have to pay more for the sake of a piece of cardboard.
So after a little googling I payed £29.99 for a 12+1 Gold subscription to be “instantly emailed to me” via InstantLiveCodes.com.
After first paying the money (via paypal or google-checkout) I got an email stating that
Instant Live Codes and PayPal are working together to make it safer than ever to buy on InstantLiveCodes.com. One of the boldest steps is to identify transactions that pose the greatest risk of fraud. Your payment has been selected for review. This is a security measure meant to protect you from problem transactions. Please contact [email protected] to acknowledge this email, instantlivecodes may ask for additional information about this transaction.
And I kinda freaked out. Decided I must have been scammed and that I’d just lost £30.
I sent them an email back saying that I was very real and after trawling a couple of forums posted my disgust at beeing ripped off.
3 hours later I got my code (about 9pm at night) and it worked like a charm.
Thank You InstantLiveCodes very, very much. I recommend thee
Obviously this is the most controversial thing i’ve ever written about, and I’m going to close the comments.
To all of you who have used them with success, good on you. T o all of you who are having problems, I’m sorry, but I have nothing to do with them.
