Black Friday is fast approaching, and already several retailers–such as Best Buy, Target, and Walmart–have released the sales that customers can expect during the holiday. For the past few years, the Friday after Thanksgiving has presented a good opportunity to purchase an Xbox Live Gold subscription at a discount, and this year is no exception.
Xbox Live Gold allows you to play online multiplayer in Xbox 360 and Xbox One games that support the feature–such as Forza Horizon 4 and For Honor: Marching Fire Edition. A subscription also gives you access to several free games that Microsoft changes every month, and you can keep them for as long as you keep paying for the service. You get exclusive discounts on select titles in the Xbox Marketplace each month as well.
Normally, you can buy a one-month subscription for Xbox Live Gold for $10, three-month for $25, six-month for $40, and 12-month for $60. If you’re just looking to try out the service, then buying a one-month subscription through the Microsoft Store on Black Friday is the way to go, as the price has been lowered to $1. The same is true for a year-long subscription, which will be discounted in the Microsoft Store to $40. For three-month, you’ll want to take advantage of Walmart’s 50% off Black Friday deal. Go to Target or Best Buy for a six-month subscription.
Every retailer and online store is offering different discounts for each subscription on Xbox Live Gold. We’ve outlined all of the current deals below, and will update the list as additional Black Friday sales for Xbox Live Gold become available.
