Xbox gamers rejoice! You can have one entire year of Xbox Live Gold for free… if you try out Microsoft’s Office 365 for a year, too.
If you haven’t heart of Microsoft Office 365, it’s a cloud-based service that allows you to download Word, Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint, Publisher, Outlook and Access on up to five different PC or Mac devices, plus 20 GB of online storage space via SkyDrive, and 60 minutes worth of calls through its Skype service.
The only way to get the year’s worth of Xbox Live Gold is to activate an Office 365 Home Premium annual subscription (which is $99 a year) or an Office 365 University subscription, and doing so only between July 18th, 2013 and September 29th, 2013. Doing this will get you your Xbox code by October 31st, 2013 after signing in with the Microsoft account email and password you used to set up your Office 365 subscription, and then you can redeem that code on Xbox.com or your Xbox 360 console.
