    You need it to play online.

    Well I must be that guy but I don't think there is anything of real value to being an XBOX live GOLD member. You need GOLD to play games online against others. You need GOLD to watch Netflix and Youtube. You need GOLD to pretty much do anything on XBOX except to pay for other things on XBOX. These things are free on other platforms. ALL OF THEM! From Andriod, iOS, Wii, PS3, and PC. Also, BluRay Players and Smart TVs. ....Tablets. Windows Phone 7/8.......... Seriously, Netflix needs GOLD. Until Sony can create a decent enough market for me to Want to play their games online, Microsoft is the only game in town.

    My 9 year old was connecting with his friends and playing head to head within 30 minutes of entering the x-box live membership. However, he was also connected to complete strangers whose voices filled my speakers. Had no control over what they say or what my son hears from them. Still trying to figure out how to eliminate them. I feel like there should have been a permission for them to get through rather than me having to go in and eliminate them

    I wanted a purchase membership code for my son but was not sure how it would work. To be on the safe side i decided to purchase the 3 moth Gold instead of the 12 months in case it did not work but it work perfectly.The instruction was clear therefore once i followed the instruction on how to enter the code it worked instantly. Our three months is not up as yet and my son has no complaint and cant wait to purchase another one.

    Smooth and quick way to gift a gamer

    Not a lot to say beyond this is a slick, easy, convenient way to gift a fellow gamer with some XBox Live time without hassling with doing the bulk of it online from your own account as a Gift. I'm not leary of CC issues or billing, but I just find it easier to hand someone one of these and know it'll cover a few months of access and it'll avoid me having to do clerical work to deliver it electronically.

    Love this deal from Best buy for 3mos Xbox live for $12.99, and like ability to play online. But I've already paid for an Xbox and I get having to pay for huluplus, Netflix, etc... Xbox should not charge for being able to access those services that I already have to pay for. It's fine I they want to charge for playing Xbox online, but other services should already be on the dashboard so long as you pay their fees.

    The online access is a nice feature that allows you to interact with friends and family and to play with others all around the country. But this would be and even better feature if it was not so expensive. As much as you have to pay for the console and the games I think this feature should be free or at least at a much cheaper price.

    I got this from Best Buy store and was complete waste of money. The card was not activated at point of purchase either because of Best Buy or Microsoft error but neither acknowledge the error and I am unable to redeem it. It comes with error on activation and the worst part is Microsoft support rep Kevin instead of giving replacement code blames me of stealing the card.

    Aside from being able to access multiplayer games with this, Xbox offers free games every month with their Xbox Live Gold membership. Sometimes they're indy games, sometimes they're more popular games. First game I downloaded with it was worth more than I paid for this 3 month card. Absolutely worth the purchase.

    I got this right before Xmas for $12.99 on a one day deal. I ordered two at this great price. My son was so happy to receive it in his stocking and I was happy to not worry about it for another 6 months. I went online, ordered to pick up in store and picked it up the same day. It was the easiest transaction.

    Fun for 3 More Months

    Pretty basic review here. This is the 3-Month Subscription to XBox Live. I paid $15, instead of $25. So a savings of $3+/month. Can't complain about excellent online features for only 5 bucks. Anyway, I would love to still get Netflix and other non-gaming apps to work without having to purchase Live.

    I do not understand the point of writing a review for a Xbox Live membership card. However, it is useful if you do not want to give Microsoft your account information to purchase access. The price is too high for what Microsoft offers, but it's a must have if you want to play online.

    I was worried about the technology at my sons fingertips. I didn't want to commit to a year in case my son's grades didn't hold up or he would get himself in trouble. But I was surprised at the features that can be blocked more so for my eight yr old. I love all the different things we can do now.

    I purchased a 3 month card which included 800 points when it was on sale here. This was a great value and BB have these sales occasionally. And if you're playing Xbox 360 without Live you're basically missing out on an experience. I highly recommend buying this card.

    I buy this to my kids during the summer break. This is the best way to control amount of playing time, I tried not to let them play during the school. Before, when I had a month to month with automatic money withdraw from my bank it was a very hard to cancel that subscription.

    I'm a Gold Member at Xboxlive. My membership due was coming up soon. Luckily, as a daily deal participant of Best Buy, I saw this on a daily deal and just couldn't pass up. I get more perks with Gold Membership plus it was on a daily deal sale. It was a win-win!

    Not much to say about this. I have 3 boys and they all love playing online with friends. In my day, you met at the playground after school, today kids meet online. The social aspects are the same, they are just missing the actual physical exercise.

    XBOX Live Subscription Cards Work

    These are great to pick up (this or the 12 month card) if they are on sale, since Microsoft does not discount the service itself. So if you renew through Microsoft, then you pay full price. But find these in a sale and you can save some money.

    I had a bad experience with my son charging my credit card and then I found this where I was actually able to control every aspect of this game. There were no worries about "what if my account gets hacked" I have so much more control.
