For as much as some tend to complain about Microsoft Points and the like, I think the hassle is worth putting up with so long as sales like this continue to happen. Amazon’s got 12-month subscriptions for Xbox Live Gold marked down to a less-painful $35.99.
They’ve already burned through the stockpile of game codes, unfortunately, so you’ll have to order a physical card for this deal. Silly? Yeah. But it’s the bargain hunter’s way.
