Amazon's sale on Xbox Live Gold memberships has been going for a week now, which is longer than we expected. If you haven't taken advantage of it, we highly suggest doing so sooner rather than later. There's no telling how long it has left. Here's what you need to know...
At the time of writing, Amazon is offering a bonus 3-month Xbox Live Gold membership when you purchase 3-months for $24.99 (details are in the "special offers and product promotions" section, which is around 1/4th of the way down the product page). That's a pretty solid sale when you consider that a typical 6-month membership runs $39.99. It's also $5 cheaper than the same span in a $59.99 12-month membership, so tacking on an additional 6-months at this price is a no-brainer.
Given the perks of being an Xbox Live Gold member, there is absolutely no reason not to jump all over this deal. If you aren't on the Xbox Live Gold bandwagon yet, you can learn more about the perks below.

On a related note, if you got a new Xbox One for the holidays but didn't take advantage of the Black Friday deals on wireless controllers, we have good news. The $39.99 deal is back!
Indeed, you can score an extra controller in black at Walmart right now for $39.14 with free 2-day shipping. The deal is also available via Amazon, though you'll need to be a Prime member to get your controller inside 48 hours for free. If you're looking for a different look, Walmart also has other Xbox controller options on sale, though they aren't as heavily discounted as the standard black version.
