    Poor customer service

    Card wasn't activated @ the store. I went back 2 the store I bought it from & they treated me like a criminal. They said the card didn't match the receipt. That's impossible since I bought the card the same day I bought an xbox1 console.There was an issue @ the register activating the card. The young brunette girl treid a few different cards & said something about the batch being bad. Finally she said this card was ok. I wonder if that's maybe y the receipt doesn't match the card since she had swiped several cards. When I went 2 customer service 2 get the card activated I was there 4 a long time cuz the lady left after I explained what I was there 4. She came back with some1 else who said the card doesn't match the receipt so they couldn't do anything. He basically said that I got the card some where else & was trying 2 get a free 1 from them. He also said the store doesn't sell the card I have, they only sell the green cards. So he lied 2 my face since I bought the card @ that store along with almost $800 of other xbox stuff. I wasn't asking 4 a new 1 just wanted ithe 1 I bought activated since I paid $60 for it. I spent almost $800 that day on an xbox1 & accessories. I wish I had gone 2 Walmart instead @ least the cashiers there know how 2 activate a card when I buy 1. Now I'm out $60 & had 2 go 2 walmart & buy another card for $60. That 1 was activated & worked with no problems. I'd like 2 know y I'm treated like I'm stealing or something when I was just trying 2 get an item I bought @ the Newington store 2 work like it's supposed 2 if the cashier swipes it 4 activation. I don't recommend any1 buy a card @ Best Buy that needs 2 b activated by a cashier cuz if the cashier doesn't do it right Best Buy won't honor it. Instead of admitting the cashier made a mistake they'll treat u like a criminal. I had a similar issue @ Walmart once with a phone card not being activated & when I went back & they activated it with no problems & they didn't make me feel like I was trying 2 get something 4 free. They just fixed the issue. I'm extremely disappointed with Best Buy. This is the 2nd issue I've had with this same store this year. A manager resolved an issue with bluetooth headsets 4 me this spring. But this time a manager basically called me a thief. That's insulting & very poor customer service. The card I bought looks just like the picture in this review.

    This solid piece of plastic was by far the best purchase I've ever made. The minute I picked it up I knew it wasn't some cheap, this, poorly designed flat piece of plastic. I would recommend this to anyone if you're looking for quality plastic with numbers on it. Only downside was it was such well made plastic I couldn't fold it into a airplane in my attempt of world dominance. I assume if I bought more than one at a time the FBI and NSA would place me on some sort of watch list because of the pure quality of the plastic. Hence the four stars.

    Xbox Live Gold is golden and indeed quite lively. You may need a quarter to scratch off the silvery, likely toxic material to reveal the code. If you spent all of your money on this membership and don't have a quarter, a penny should work. Those can always be found on the floor of gas station restrooms. If you're a high roller like me, scan the bar code using the Kinect camera, because I'm cash poor with credit card debt and fearful of gas station restrooms. Enjoy Xbox Live!

    Yes! Pays for Itself

    If your best buy guy didn't get you this when you bought your console then he needs to be fired. This service pays for itself with the free games that come every month... not cheezy games... great games! I got Tell Tales games titles, the first Lara Croft game, and we get new ones to choose from each month. Plus, this service is required for most of the online content in other major titles like Destiny and Elder Scrolls Online.

    I don't like the idea of paying to play online from games I already brought, but i did for the one game that I wanted to play online. Well I did not like it online so I used the gold membership to download the game that was being offered for free that month. Well the game was awesome and I feel that I got my money worth especially since I still can get free games ever month as long as I have the membership.

    Essential For Xbox Gamers

    Xbox live is an essential part of current-gen and next-gen gaming. Having Xbox live gold status opens up a world of extra content and it also greatly extends the replay value of ones games. Xbox also offers games with gold which gives users access to a plethora of games for free during the time of their membership. When you add that in along with discounts on digital content as well, it's a no brainer!!

    I give it 5 stars because my son loves it - apparently it is required to play a bunch of different games and against his friends. Why anyone wouldn't buy the year subscription is beyond me. I think $59.99 for a year - $24.99 for only 3 months. Even my little guy quickly did the math and said the same thing. Plus, you get access to games free.

    This card is a great way to not only get your yearly membership to Xbox Live, but it also gives you some bonus incentives/rewards you won't get by just signing up or renewing through your Xbox. In addition if you aren't sure if you will be renewing the following year, or if this is a gift, the card makes for a much better option.

    Get one of these every year for Christmas for the kids, mainly my son. They seem to use it more than I thought they would. The online gaming experience the kids get by using this card is great. The price is not that bad either. Would be nice to be free, but then the updates and quality would really suffer.

    Good value and in stock every time I've checked. Cheaper than the monthly or shorter options. Easy set up and gives me access to streaming apps on xbox. I've only seen in cheaper on online discount websites and that's only a few times a year for limited time. This must be my 3rd purchase of these makes a great gift

    If you're an Xbox owner, you definitely need Xbox Live! I've been a member for almost 10 years, and they offer great benefits: solid online gaming and chat, free titles each month, and discounts on lots of great games and movies. The yearly membership is a savings over buying month to month, too!

    This is an excellent program that allows you to get free games and play with others online. However, make sure that you put it under the right profile because you can not change profiles once you add it to one. Otherwise great program with great benefits. Well worth the money.

    I brought this for my grandson because of the extra games he can receive twice a month, but am having trouble setting it up. I will keep trying. I think it is a server problem, as microsoft has been very good about helping me. Next stop if ATT can't help is the Geek Squad!!

    This was purchased for my grandson. It just makes everything better to have a gold membership. Free games every month. Access to all online gaming. I have always thought it was well worth the money to enhance the overall experience on the xbox 360 or xbox one. Game on.

    I like the fact I can go out to the store and buy my subscription and don't haft to put my credit card information on the xbox itself. The xbox will not let you erase the credit cards off of your account unless you replace it with a new credit card. I do not agree with that.

    Not sure how to review a membership card, but this was the same price as the basic xBox Gold Live, so I decided to get this. Haven't finished my trial membership yet, but will use this to upgrade upon completion. Then I will also see what's available for download.

    I went to best buy and purchased this using price match from approved online retailer. Best buys is AWESOME when it comes to price match and I got the product instantly instead of waiting for it through mail or worse... having it lost in mail. A MUST HAVE FOR XBOX ONE

    Microsoft should consider updating the cards to include a barcode or QR code so the redemption key does not have to be manually entered but can be scanned using the kinect. I know some cards already have this feature so why not upgrade the rest?

    Xbox live is a great service. Lots you can do and with free games every month, xbox live on XBOX one is great. You can stream movies, watch netflix. I Just wish that it did not cost so much per year and that Xbox one had a keypad like the xbox 360 has.

    I really enjoyed getting my Gold Plus card for XBOX here at Best Buy. The sales person worked diligently to help me find the particular online gaming card I was specifically looking for. Now I can COD - out all night long, with no more interuptions!
