FREE Games for XBOX 360 & ONE
Just to clarify right away - This is NOT a sponsored post and none of my links are affiliate. I am posting this on my own to tell my readers about this deal and we have purchased our own XBOX Live Gold membership.
Each month members of XBOX Live Gold get 2 FREE Games for both XBOX 360 and XBOX ONE. So, I suppose if you have both systems you could really get 4 games free. The games are usually ones that have been out for a while that would retail (on average $20) $10-$30.
So, if you or someone in your house likes to play new games often, this could be the way to go because you are easily $480 on the purchase of 2 games a month.
Yes, you do have to purchase the membership and it $59.99 through the Xbox website and they seem to offer a promotion once in a while, but I suggest buying it through Amazon where right now the purchase price is $44.46 (but we all know how often Amazon prices change, so you might need to add this to your wishlist and keep an eye on the price.)
To give you an idea of what is available this month:
8/16-9/15 : How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition (RV $20)
9/1/-9/30 : The Deer God (RV $10)
9/16-10/15: Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (RV $30)
9/1-9/15: Battlestations Pacific (RV $25)
9/16-9/30: Crysis 3 (RV $20)
Usually it is my husband using this membership, which you can also use for online multi-player experience, but we also use it to stream Amazon Prime Video and Netflix through as well. If I think of it, I may try to remind readers every month of the free downloads.
As you can see, you pretty much break even with your first 2 free downloads and then it's free after that.
