You can still find 13-month Xbox Live cards for $30, or 3-month subs with the Lost & Damned DLC. Plus, GameStop is opening up store credit like a subprime lender from 2004.
• Last week, Best Buy offered the 13 month XBL card for $29.99. It's back to full price there, but Toys R Us is now running its own $29.99 special. Like BB, the card is sold out online, almost immediately, so check in-store. CheapCollege Gamer notes it's rare for these things to be on sale at the same time. I'm beginning to wonder if this is a rolling-thunder campaign to get you to waltz into Microsoft's preferred retailing partners, where you might be inclined to buy something else.
