On Thursday Buy.com put up a deal for the 12 month membership putting the price down from $60 down to $40. The purchase is a full physical card, but in most states there won't be any sales tax or delivery cost to hurt the amazing price.
This is cheaper than any other deal I've seen with the closest being the $44.99 deal from Amazon.com for a digital code. Digital codes may be more convenient, but if you want to give it as a gift, this is a perfect opportunity.
With this code you'll be spending the equivalent to $3.33 a month for Xbox Live Gold services such as online multiplayer capabilities, party chat, plenty of apps and access to special deals in the marketplace.
Compared to the average price of $8.33 a month, you'll be saving a total of $60 for a year's use.
