Xbox Live Diamond now requires membership fee
Posted by XanTium | January 9 00:24 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From xbox360fanboy.com:


If you're familiar with the Xbox Live Diamond Card program, then you know that membership in it entitles you to all kinds of deals from a bunch of online retailers as well as retailers in your neighborhood.

Starting in March, Microsoft's program partner Passport Unlimited will be taking complete control over the Diamond program and will begin charging an annual fee. $6.95 a year to be exact. Registration is closed until the transfer is complete and current members will keep their membership free of charge until their 2008 expiration date when Passport Unlimited will require payment to renew.

nope.. but after turning a free rewards program type of thing, into a anual payment thing. shows how greedy they have gotten. back in xbox-one days, they gave out 1 or 2 month(forgot how long) free xbox-live services with certain games. now all u get is a 48-hour trial.

yup, I've never used mine either...

when it expires it will just go in the trash.

90% of the stores they offer discounts at are places that aren't even available in my area. the other 10% are either places I don't shop or the discount is for something that isn't useful tome.

when I signed up they were talking about discounts on games and I thought... gee I buy a lot of games this will be great. But instead they give you coupons for stuff like shoes and fast food.. I have no use for that.

The whole point of the program is to encourage you to spend money at the places where you get discounts.

so far I've saved $0 but I've also spent $0

if they want me to pay $7 to save $0 then count me out... thats another XBLA title or game off the discount rack...

LOL at the 4 people who pay for this. Mine has been collecting dust in the closet for months now.
The rewards are total crap, so unless they add some more services with the new annual fee, nobody will pay.

Maybe I will pay it if they actually start making the thing useful. Come one give us some places that we actually use. Who the heck wants to buy jump usa gear?

I have had my card for 2 years and never could use it anywhere. Now they want money for this shit. This is why I will continue to stick it to M$ as long as they are viable in my house. Kiss ass M$.
