Free xbox live gold membership for VF at home customers

Meant to post this a while ago. If you're a Vodafone at home (land line and broadband) customer then you will probably get a 1 year free Xbox live gold membership. I'm not 100% sure if this offer is still running but I got it about 3 months ago. I wasn't notified about it but just happened to find it.

Log into you online account and down the left side of the home page click on "Living at home". From memory there are then 2 options - 1 to buy and 1 free.

I'm just after checking my own account and I see they now have another free "add-on" called Mentor which is to help students with making choices in relation to subjects and study methods etc.

Hope this helps someone.

Yeah its still there. You need to upgrade your pack to "Ideal" or "Ultimate" first.

Apologies, that is indeed correct.

I was already on the "Ideal" package for quite a while and wasn't aware of it until I stumbled upon it one day.

if someone is on the ideal or ultimate package feel free to give me the code, my subscription has run out and it will be like charity (unless they have some account specific sort of thing... or if you want to sell it instead of being charitable which is fair enough )

However, if you're on one of their other packages and don't want to "upgrade" (would be a downgrade for me), you can still get a year's subscription for €35 on the same page, which is a saving of €25 over the full Microsoft price.

(EDIT: Well, the broadband part would be a side-grade, but I have some old voice add-ons that I'm not even sure are still available from Vodafone, and I just don't want to go there in case I end up losing them.)

It says "ideal broadband" in your package description so yes you should get it. There are 2 options when you go to order...one is to pay and the other is free.....thats if I recall corectly as its about 4 months ago that I availed of it.

Edit/ dont forget to include your customer number and or phone number in any PMs.

If in doubt at all you can always PM Vodafone: Darren or Vodafone: Dwayne (he's currently logged in) to have it cofirmed. Thats what I did at the time.

Thanks for the heads up,Muffler. I only upgraded to the 300g pack last week, 40g no good for Netflix! Never even knew about this offer, sure enough it's available to me free.

Just wondering tho, son still has 3 months left on his Live sub, can I still apply this offer anyway and will it kick in after the 3 months? Or should I get the code from VF and just hang onto it?

The 12 months will be added on to the current subscription, so you can input the code right away.
