Xbox Live Silver members can upgrade to one month of "Gold" for $1

Haven't had the cash to upgrade to an Xbox LIVE Gold account, Mr. or Mrs. Silver Member? Well, it's time to dig through the nether reaches of your couches and wrangle up a dollar as Microsoft has extended Silver Members the chance to snag one month of Gold Membership for 100 pennies. What's the catch, you say? If forgetful gamers do not cancel their membership they will be billed $7.99 each month for their Gold subscription. So long as you don't forget to unsubscribe, we would recommend taking advantage of this offer, Mr. or Mrs. Silver Member. What if you "like the goods" and wish to be a monthly subscriber? If you like being charged $95.88 a year as apposed to $49.99, we'd suggest becoming a monthly subscriber. Otherwise, you can stick to the $49.99 for a year of Gold Membership plus a bonus month.
