    There is no way to remove a credit/debit card via the website. (if only 1 on account)

    I want to just use gamecards from now on. I called them up to axe my subscription a few minutes ago. They tell me that my Live subscription has already started as of the 17th even though I got an email today telling me it's starting today (20th).

    I told them that I want my card off their site. He tells me that since it's already started he can't till it's charged. So they want to charge me for the 3 months or however much I've used up till then.

    MY CARD ON FILE IS CANCELLED BROS!

    they will charge me on Dec 17th

    Me thinks I will have a free month of Live cuz there is no way that card will go through :hsugh:

    cliffs: I closed my debit account / recieved email today about successfully renewing my xbox live account / Website doesn't let me cancel subscription / called xbox to cancel sub / they can't without charging me / I'm getting a month of Live cuz my debit card is closed


    long cliffs ftl :hsugh:

    I canceled a credit card for my first XBL account. They tried to bill me and when it didn't go through they just totally closed my account. Not banned, just no posibility of ever being able to use it again. :greddy:

    that's why you use a credit card, not a debit card

    no, you don't. if you start day 1 just using prepaid cards, you never have to add a credit card.

    go buy a prepaid credit card and add that then remove your old card via the website. when you add the prepaid card, turn off auto-renew

    I got screwed on the auto-renew :doh:

    I didn't even have my 360 anymore and got charged for another year of xbl, and they wouldn't cancel it no matter how much I bitched they said it was my fault. This was like 3 years ago though

    I was going to renew with my card online because it was easier, but i guess i'll be sticking to the store-bought cards now.
