12 days total for me.

emphasize what a great inconvenience this is and ms will accommodate you with marketplace points, live subscription credit, and sometimes a game. (first-hand knowledge)

if you just go through the motions, you'll receive 1-month of xbox-live free.

since you have to call cust svc anyway, at least make it worth your while.

if it's not under warranty, you can try the towel trick. if u send it in around x-mas time, expect a delay.

How did you emphasize your inconvenience?

About 10 total days for me. said sorry for the inconvenience and gave 1 month of free xbox live gold.

Didnt emphasize any inconveniences.

First of all, I STRESS to you, do not take the advice of whoever suggested the "towel trick".
Here's why:

Complain. Become a nuisance in general. Inform whoever you are dealing with that you have recently invested money in new games which you are now unable to play. Embellish, exaggerate, and lie if you so desire
In all likelihood, they'll make a few attempts to pacify you by saying the best they can do is a month of x-box gold.
Reply: this is inexcusable and you would like to deal with someone else.

process continues in that fashion

An approach like that will return a better package than the default 1-month of xbox live.

It is all about your resolve, really. If you have the time to waste, and patience, go for it.

If you want to fore go the hassle, it only takes 5 minutes to request a box for shipping.

I don't think the turn around time should be any longer bc of the holidays. Shipping was ups guaranteed 2-day both ways for me, and I doubt the service center is receiving any greater volume of bricked consoles.

I complained because mine took a lil while to arrive so i got 2 free games, 1 year of Live and a free 20gb hd! But I called so many times to complain because it almost too a month. But I know if you complain they will hook you up with something.

Never mind. It looks like it's 3 years if you get the red light of death. I you don't, then it's your standard.

What is the standard warranty without the red light of death? Didn't read the whole link.

I'm lazy.

Dude, don't try the towel fix. If will f*ck up your box. Yeah it fixes the red light temporarily but at the expense of your 360's health. I got the 3ROD about 5 months ago and I have a modifed xbox :mad:. Luckily, I was able to find a third party to fix it for $40. Works like a charm now.

i was pretty much kidding about the towel trick. i know of someone who fixes 360's w/ the rrod for cheap.

Re: My 360 has the RROD
 
it's called an "x-clamp" fix. i don't know what it is exactly but it fixes the rrod. a guy on this game forum i'm on fixes them for pretty cheap. u gotta mail it to him and he'll ship it back.
