When they did this earlier in the year, there was a two day offer after the weekend to get a month at half price or so. I thought about it but decided against, then the next day it offered me a whole month for free. Strikes me as a bit mental, though I've not cancelled the subscription so I guess it works - but I'd hardly be pleased if i'd gone with the first offer. Would they do the same thing again?

While that may be true, doesn't access to those "free" games stop if you don't pay for that subscription?

Yes, your access to the free games stops if you cancel your subscription - but the EU gets some really good games for their money.

I always used to get a '2 months for £2' offer as I'm always silver, kept giving me the same offer so for two years I did that but after the last dashboard update the offer disappeared, the new offer isnt worth it for me.
