Considering picking up a discounted three-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold? Well, don't. Instead, you should spend a little bit more this Black Friday on a 12-month Xbox Live subscription.
Scooping up the first Black Friday Xbox Live deal you see can certainly be tempting, but if you want to secure future savings then you should have your eye on a 12-month subscription instead.
Sure, the three-month subscription is cheaper but, when your membership runs out, you'll have to renew again for full price. However, if you purchase a 12-month subscription now then, when you have to renew in a year, you will once again get a great Black Friday discount. In other words, you may not have to pay full price again (as long as Black Friday continues).
