    Can we not turn this shit off online anymore...It's supposed to look like the image below, but I don't have a link for my "ON" :squint:

    I just got the e-mail that they are auto renewing in a month and I have another card. If I add that, will it still auto renew?

    If you add a card it won't auto-renew. it only auto-renews when your subscription is up.

    "Oh sorry we have to send this issue to a specialist because removing a credit card from your account is such a huge and complex task"

    I had to call them twice to stop my auto-renewal, because I ended up getting charged after the first call even though they said it would stop :ugh:

    I have to say, when I first put my credit card up for xbox live, I had no clue it auto-renewed. Boy, that day a year later when I was using my debit card for several small purchases because I thought I had money in my account was fun, I sure do love overdraft fees. Thanks Microsoft, your greed knows no bounds!

    No they don't renew if you have months left (i.e. add more card) and yes you can remove cc on console :wavey:

    I hate that shit but I initially signed up with a CC that was almost expired and have used pre-paid cards since.

    The absolute WORST is when you call to cancel and you get a call centre in India.

    Let me tell you, trying to spell out your gamertag to an ESL'er is pure torture.

    :werd: pre-paid cards are the way to go because you can actually find deals and sales for them instead of paying the full price directly to MS

    they fucking banned my account because my credit card expired and i didnt feel like renewing so i would get an email every day saying that my year live sub would not go through. Then finally after about 2 weeks i tried to log in and my entire account was banned. Fuckers.
