Getting and Redeeming Xbox 360 Codes
The Xbox Live redeem code can be used at the Xbox website or the console. Once redeemed, you can get content from Xbox Live Marketplace, Microsoft Points or Xbox memberships.
How to Redeem on a PC
Go online to the Xbox website. Use your Windows Live ID to log in. Type the 25-character prepaid code. Click Redeem Code. If you have an Xbox LIVE Gold Membership code, it will extend the membership or add one to your account.
If the prepaid is Microsoft Points, you will get more points. If it is Marketplace, content will be added the next time the console is logged on the Internet.
How to Redeem Codes on a Console
Sign in using the account you want to utilize with the code. Hit the Guide button and choose Marketplace. Choose Redeem Code. Input the 25-character prepaid code. Click done and then Yes.
How to Get Free Xbox Live Codes
There are many ways to do this. There are several websites that offer the codes for free. But you need to be patient because some sites charge membership fees before you can get the prepaid items “free”. You should read the website rules before accepting its offers.
Some sites do give the codes away for free. However, you have to do some work for the site. This usually means publicity work of some kind.
Some gaming review sites give the codes away for free. However, they are in great demand so you will have to look at many sites. You can also get free ones from certain games. Many come with these codes you can use for a specific time period. Some are good for a few days while others will last for a month or even longer.
Your console comes with its own trial card. This card is valid for two months and comes with new consoles. Log on the Internet with the Xbox. Enter the code and you can use it for two months. This will give you the chance to evaluate the codes.
If you do not have the time to look for free cards, you can buy a subscription code. It is cheaper to purchase the yearly memberships because you will get one month free.
Microsoft also has special promos which you can avail of. The Xbox dashboard will let you know when these come up. Many websites also offer points you can earn to buy these codes.
