Xbox Live Gold trial membership

Overview

The Xbox LIVE Gold trial membership provides temporary access to the features of Xbox LIVE, including online multiplayer gaming.

When you set up an Xbox One or Xbox 360 console, you follow an account creation sign-up process so that you can access Xbox Live Free membership features, assuming that you have a broadband Internet connection. At the end of the account creation process, you can upgrade to an Xbox Live Gold membership. If you don’t upgrade, you can receive a free Xbox Live Gold trial membership.

The Xbox Live Gold trial membership is associated with a single gamertag and can’t be added to an existing membership. A total of three trial accounts are available per console, and this limitation cannot be reset. After a user has created three trial accounts, the user no longer receives a message that provides the opportunity to create an Xbox Live Gold trial account.

To use the Xbox Live Gold trial membership, you must add a payment method to your account.

At the end of the trial period, the Xbox Live Gold trial membership automatically renews to a paying membership that renews monthly by default. The membership will renew to the payment method that was added.

For information about membership renewal, see Learn how to turn on automatic renewal for your Xbox Live Gold membership. To learn how to turn off automatic renewal, see Cancel your Xbox Live Gold (paid) membership.
