I'm sure this thread will inspire many ugly remarks as to why any one would do it but times are tough and money's tight so please keep those comments to yourself. I have tried looking for how to do this several times and nothing jumps out at me. How do I unsubscribe so I can save some money?

    Isn't it a yearly payment?
    Or is this a month to month thing you have goin' on?
    I didn't know they had month to month if that's the case.

    Go to http://www.xbox.com and log in with your Live account credentials.

    Click your gamertag name when it appears at the top of the xbox.com page's login info, then when you get to the My Account page, click on Contact Information (Near your Avatar), then find the "Membership Level" link on the left hand side. Somewhere in there there should be "Auto Renew: ON" click that, and you should get some option to turn it off, complete with a nag page begging you to keep it on.

    they do have month to month, but it is idiotic to pay for it that way (3-4 months can buy a one year sub off ebay).

    but just use what dehumanized posted, and all will be well.

    It's like the Mafia, you only leave in a body bag.

    Or after talking to an Indian guy for about an hour.

    I'm psyched to see they changed it to allow you to not auto-renew. I hated having to call to get it turned off.

    Ditto. Thanks for this - just reminded me I needed to cancel now I no longer own a 360. Seems to have worked. Fingers crossed!

    <AtlusParker> Sorry I'm playing Pokemon and vomiting at the same time so I'm not following the conversation in a linear fashion.

    Here's an ugly remark: Microsoft are a bunch of fucking crooks for making you jump through crazy hoops to unsubscribe from Live Gold or to remove a credit card number from the dashboard.

    Maybe that's a strong word, but the way they set this up is really shady as hell.

    This is why I subscribe and buy points only through prepaid cards.

    It was even worse a few months ago when there wasn't even an option to deactivate Auto Renew online; you had to call them, sit through all of "Max's" bullshit, then bitch at an Indian trying to talk you out of it until they finally turned it off.
