How to set up auto-renewal for Xbox Live Gold subscriptions

Overview

When you sign up for an Xbox Live Gold subscription, renewal happens automatically. If you've turned automatic renewal off and want to turn it back on, this page will tell you how. If you want to cancel a trial or turn auto-renewal off, see How to cancel your Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Turn on automatic renewal

When you purchase an Xbox Live Gold subscription, automatic renewal turns on by default if you have a payment option associated with your account. If you’ve turned automatic renewal off but want to turn it back on, follow these steps.

  1. Go to account.microsoft.com.
  2. In the first box, type your Microsoft account email address. In the second box, type your Microsoft account password.
  3. Then, click Sign in.
  4. Under Services & subscriptions, scroll to the subscription you want to renew and click Renew.
  5. Review the details, and then click Confirm auto-renew.

Note If you have a prepaid subscription, it will be renewed automatically. You will not see Renew under your subscription if you use a prepaid subscription.
