I am currently have a xbox live gold membership set to expire in March 2011. However the price of xbox live is increasing to $59.99 starting November 1, 2010.

If I buy a 12 month membership now at the current price of $49.99, will the additional travel months be added on to my existing membership or will I start a new membership whose expiration date is when I buy it.

Yes, they do. You can lock the lower price so when it auto-renews you save $20.

See here

One year subscription at $39.99 for the first year with auto-renewal at the then current annual price following year one

+1 Simple, direct, links to credible source, and even provides the extra information he wants to know. I cannot think of a better answer. –  tzenes Sep 2 '10 at 17:59
    
Link doesn't seem to work any longer :( –  Jimmy Apr 30 '11 at 14:50

Yes, additional purchased membership time will stack. In addition to the one-year lock-in price currently offered by Microsoft, you can buy scratch cards at pretty much any retailer where games are sold. These can be bought at the current subscription price, and redeemed either now (and stacked with existing time) or sold to your friends later for a teeny tiny profit.

EDIT: Yes, it is stacked to my knowledge. You can view this in the "Account section" of your home screen dashboard under "Settings", "Account". Also, if you want to remove the "Auto renewal" and remove the Credit card from the account you will have to call Microsoft and they may take 3-7 days. There may be an option somewhere in the accounts.microsoft section of your live account although if the card is associated with the membership, it will not be able to be removed without the gold membership being removed...

That's good, but you don't actually answer the question. –  Frank Apr 4 at 4:20
    
Yes, they do stack, you can check this in the "Accounts" section of your dash, apologies, I figured it was answered. –  Brok3n Apr 4 at 4:28

That's the point of answers. Additional info is great, but you still need to answer the question. –  Frank Apr 4 at 13:29
