This is weird. My family gold subscription was set to expire on Sept. 12. I knew the plan was ending, and had gotten the notifications about the kids' accounts being converted to full gold accounts with a few months added, so I figured I had a bit of time to pick up some cheap 12 month Live gold cards for them before the end of the year. Well, on Sept. 12th, I get an email saying my Family Gold plan had autorenewed for the standard $99.99 + tax. Sure enough, my card has been charged, and the plan shows as expiring in Sept. 2014. I didn't think that was supposed to happen.
