    Family Gold Pack

    Or to make it easier:

    When you add a family member to an Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack, you have to add it to the same console as the primary account holder. However, after you add that family member to your Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack, they can recover their account on a different
    console and still remain a part of the Family Pack. AND The Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack gives you four 12-month Gold memberships for less than the price of two.

    Add someone to a Gold Family Pack

    Notes

    • Only the primary account can add a member (secondary account) to a Gold Family Pack. If you’re adding an existing account, you’ll need the Windows Live ID and password of the account that you’re adding.
    • If the account that you want to add to your Family Pack is not stored on your console, you’ll need to

      download the Xbox LIVE gamertag
      .
    • Existing Xbox LIVE accounts keep all Microsoft Points and gamerscores when you add them to the Gold Family Pack.
    Console steps: Add someone to a Gold Family Pack

      1. On your console, sign into Xbox LIVE with the primary account for the Gold Family Pack.

    1. Go to Settings, and then select Family.

    1. Select Add Family Member.

    [table][tr][td][​IMG][/td][/tr][/table]

      1. Under Your Gold Family Pack, select Available: Add Gold Family Member.
    Note If you don’t see an ‘Available’ member, you may need to remove a member before adding a new member. The Gold Family Pack can have three secondary members.

    1. Do one of the following:
    • Select an existing gamertag on your console.

      • If you’re adding an existing Xbox LIVE account to your Family Pack, you’ll need the Windows Live ID and password for this account.

    • If you’re creating a new Xbox LIVE account, you’ll need a Windows Live ID. If you don't have one,

    • The final screen explains how existing Gold membership time is added to the Gold Family Pack. The Gold Family Pack receives one month of additional membership time for every two months of remaining Xbox LIVE Gold time. For example, if the secondary account

    Give your family access to your entire games library anytime, anywhere

    Actually just to add to your point, you will only need 1 Gold membership. You can add additional members of your family to your gold account and they will get gold access as well on Xbox Live. I believe it is up to 5 out of the 10 family members. They have
    eliminated the family subscription.

    XBox Live Family -- Please HELP!!

    Hey there AlteredPlanet, below I've posted the info from the FAQ for the family pack. The only "catch" I would consider being that the secondary members on the family pack can't purchase anything via credit card.

    -

    How much does a Gold Family Pack membership cost?

    Xbox LIVE subscription costs vary by region. For current, specific information, see the
    Xbox LIVE Membership page.

    If you already have individual Gold memberships, the price is discounted based on how much time is remaining on your existing Gold memberships. For more information, please see

    Join an Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack
    .

    Your Xbox LIVE account is billed for the first 12 months
    (less any discounts you might be eligible for)
    when you sign up for a Gold Family Pack membership.

    How do I sign up or convert an existing Xbox LIVE membership?

    Please see
    Join an Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack
    .

    How do I purchase Microsoft Points?

    Microsoft Points are the currency of the Xbox LIVE stores. Only the primary Family Pack member can purchase points, making it easier for a parent to manage his or her family’s entertainment
    budget.

    Primary member: This is the Xbox LIVE account that you used to sign up for the Gold Family Pack membership. This account can purchase and give Microsoft Points to other family members (secondary accounts). See the section below,

    How do I share points with family members (secondary accounts)?

    Secondary members: Secondary family members cannot use credit or debit cards to purchase
    Microsoft Points. Instead, secondary account members can

    redeem a Microsoft Points card
    (available at retail locations), or the primary member can give points to secondary members (see section below).

    How do I share points with family members (secondary accounts)?

    The primary member on the Gold Family Pack membership can give Microsoft Points to other family members (secondary members), so that they can make purchases on Xbox LIVE.

    Give points to family members

    1. On your console, sign in to Xbox LIVE using the Family Pack primary account (the account used to sign up for the Family Pack membership).
    2. Go to Settings, and then select Family.

    [table][tr][td][​IMG][/td][/tr][/table]

    1. Select the member that you want to give points to.
    2. Select Grant Allowance.
    3. Follow the on-screen instructions to give Microsoft Points to the secondary member. Points that you give to a secondary member cannot be reversed later.
    Note If you don’t have enough points in your account, you’ll be prompted to add more points before giving points to the secondary member.

    Can secondary members use credit cards to purchase Xbox LIVE content?

    No. Secondary members cannot add a credit or debit card to their Xbox LIVE account. Only the primary Family Pack member can purchase points, making it easier for a parent to manage their family’s entertainment budget.

    Secondary members can
    redeem Microsoft Points cards
    (available at retail locations), or the primary member can

    give points to secondary members.

    If a member has other Microsoft services, they can add a credit or debit card to use with that service. To view credit cards on a secondary account, sign into
    Microsoft Billing and Account Management using the Microsoft account of the secondary account.

    What is a primary and secondary Family Pack account?

    The Xbox LIVE account used to purchase a Gold Family Pack membership is the primary Family Pack account. All other Xbox LIVE accounts associated with the Family Pack membership are secondary accounts.

    To see and add family pack members:

    1. On your console, sign in using the Xbox LIVE account that you used to sign up for a Family Pack membership (the primary account).
    2. Go to Settings, and then select Family.
    The primary and secondary accounts are shown. To add or remove family members, please see

    Managing Gold Family Pack members
    .

    How to I add or remove family members?

    Please see
    Manage Gold Family Pack members
    .

    I’m getting a Gold Family Pack error. What should I do?

    Please see
    Troubleshooting Gold Family Pack errors
    .

    How can I set parental controls?

    Please see
    Xbox 360 console parental controls
    .

    How does a Gold Family Pack membership affect other subscriptions?

    Secondary accounts on the Gold Family Pack don’t have a separate Xbox LIVE membership, but they can add other Microsoft services, to their Microsoft account and gamertag. Other service subscriptions are not shared among the Gold Family Pack members.

    How do I cancel a Gold Family Pack membership?
