Just wondering how every has set up their xbox live subscriptions. I went to try and do it online, but it is showing my country as USA, which can't be changed; therefore I can't put in a proper billing address for credit card. Do you buy points cards in canada or can you change the country some how?

I've never gone with the credit card route for the Xbox. I've heard too many horror stories of Microsoft not removing the card, and charging it every year, or month, or whatever Live setup you chose... And the only way out seems to be canceling the card.

I just buy the 12+1 month Live cards for $59.99 ($53.99 after my EMP discount).

You can change your country though. I believe you log in through http://www.passport.net/ and update your profile there. It should then reflect on Xbox.com

Ebay has them for a lot cheaper. That's where I got mine.

a few places have live cards on sale, which is fueling rumours that Live is gonna see a price drop for subscription...tho i'm skeptical

I would avoid that route. The MS Points cards from the US don't work in Canada, so there's a very good chance the Live cards won't either.

live cards work, points don't, according to xbox 360 forums

Ah, cool. You're all good then. BestBuy.com is selling them at $20 off right now.. but there's still shipping and exchange rate.
