    I entered the contest under my friend's gamertag. He isn't 18 anyways, so it doesn't matter.

    This isn't for the folks in the United States from what I can tell. The US site and my 360 doesn't say anything about this being a free Gold weekend when I log in to Live.

    Oh, and I just read the terms and conditions to the contest. Only for those of you that live in Great Britain. I guess my entry is null and void, even if I win.

    Hopefully they do something like that here in the States. Would be pretty dumb of them not to.

    Except that the promotion is not currently announced for the US, which should be added to the OP.

    I received an email about this earlier this week, from what I know it includes most countries from the EU (the 3 days with gold)... Besides in two or three games I don't see myself really using the gold thingy.

    It seems EU only and this particular one is only for UK people, you need to go to xbox.com and have them direct you to your countries page and then search for the free gold weekend link

    No it's just you really don't need to explain it when it's well known already. If you're struggling to write something down, how about writing down the prizes, discounts and other things that are going on.

    Or if you didn't know (because you had to use a Spanish source), wait for a decent one.

    Edit: And while I have your attention, you still haven't put it's for UK only.

    Already did, just give me a sec to flush the cache. As I'm on my iPhone, I'll probably add those in later.
