Exactly. I'll take care of that though.


Will you use stealth or brute force?

Any chance you might rent NHL or NCAA in the meantime or are you just going full hog on demos and Forza 2 for awhile?

I'll probably have to wait at least two weeks (my next paycheck) before I buy any new games and purchase my Xbox Live subscription.

You get a free month of Gold XBL service with the system so you might as well use that up first.

Wow that is odd. The 1 month used to be

Oddly enough if you get the Elite version it is still included

Premium/Pro with two free games does not

Old premium system used to have it, might have been removed due to the free games

Comparison of features

Information in the table below is based on the latest specifications. Older packaging may not include all items listed.

a Media Remote was bundled instead)

I am pretty sure I can find you a free month of XBL if it is not included.  In fact in many games you get codes for free 48 hour trial trials and such.

Something I found that might be available... I think I recall this happening with my older, premium 360 that bricked.

 Seth Davis says:
I just had the same problem. Here is how you get it: Choose the free silver membership. When it asks if you really want to go with silver and not gold, say yes. The next screen will give the free month of gold. This shows up absolutely nowhere in the documentation, but does show on the outside of the box. It should definitely be clearer.

To be truthful I just migrated my Live account over from my xbox so I didn't dig very hard to find a free month.  Here's hoping Seth Davis' advice is correct.
