Limited time only.
Offer is scheduled to begin Friday (9/17) but some are reporting seeing it on their Dashboard already.

Awesome deal.  Just be sure to turn "Automatic renewal" OFF on your account after purchasing.    8)

Spotlight section, fifth box along, in between Halo Waypoint and Halo Legends.   :)

I found it under SPOTLIGHT > HALO REACH (ad).

Once you click on the Halo Reach ad, you'll go to a dedicated Halo Reach dashboard with a bunch of ads, downloads and contests.  The ad for the XBL deal is buried in there.

thanks for the tips boys but its not there for me... :'(

I've searched in the special Halo section with no luck and the fifth item in 'Spotlight' is the Sky Player, there's nothing between 'Waypoint' and 'Legends'.


Maybe its because my subs are about to run out and they want me to pay full whack...M$ are meanies!

The offer is technically not supposed to start until tomorrow, but a lot of people are already seeing it on their dashboards (me and GM included).

If your sub is about to expire, be sure to turn Auto renewal off on your account (link posted above).  That may bump the offer loose for you.

The offer is valid for Gold and Silver members, so even if you revert to Silver you should still be able to take advantage of it.

Ah well, this offer has just appeared on my dashboard this evening...about 30 mins after I re-newed by subs, M$ are cold and calculating.

Its beautifully thought out when you look at it from the 'commercial' angle but at the same time pisses me off as a customer!

I've gotten a few different answers regarding receipt of the avatar helmet.

4-6 weeks from time of purchase?
4-6 weeks from time of renewal (when your purchase actually goes through)?
Immediately following renewal?

Either way, you'll receive the code in your Windows Live ID email.  If/when you receive it, post here and let everyone know so we can remind eachother to look for it.
