All consoles come with free 1-month trials preloaded on them for brand new accounts to unlock and use, so if you don’t already have an account (including a free one), you can set one up from scratch to activate a trial. Even if you’ve never had gold, the preloaded trials are only offered to new accounts, only as they are being created.
You have to go through the account setup from start to finish without exiting it even once to get it offered at the end. You’ll see some memberships and an option for “no thanks.” It’s when you get to the end and select “no thanks” that they’ll offer you the trial. You have to put in valid billing info to start it, but you can turn any automatic renewals off on the website so that you don’t get charged after the free trial.
Xbox also offers free Gold weekends every so often! The next one coming up for the US is August 18th for their G3 charity event!! www.xbox.com/en-US/Community/G3-Charity-Ev
