    Must be online to complete this achievement.

    Choose Ultimate Team from the main menu.


    Your "starter set" you are given initially are not tradeable. Additionally, there are certain cards that can only be traded for each other (certain tiers cannot be traded for other tiers). You also cannot trade cards that put you underneath the minimum number of cards required for that type (you must always have 1 stadium, 1 QB, etc.).


    You can get this achievement for trading anything: Jersey for Stadium, Coach for Contract Extension, Player for Player, whatever.


    To make a trade (choose either option 1 or option 2):

    1. Scroll down on the MUT menu on the right to TRADES. "Search Trades" (sort however you'd like), find a card you want to trade for and submit an offer through there. At that point it is up to the person that posted the original card to decide if it is accepted or rejected. You will be notified when a decision is made under COMMUNITY on the MUT menu in the "Recent News" area. You can also track the status of all trade offers under the TRADES portion of the MUT menu.
    2. Scroll down on the MUT menu on the right to MY ULTIMATE TEAM. Open "My Cards" and scroll through to find the card you want to trade. Click "A" on the card you want to trade and scroll down to the next to last option "Add To Trade Block". It will then prompt you for your requirements [if you are trying to do this quick and easy just leave the default options so you get all kinds of offers]. You will be notified when an offer is made under COMMUNITY on the MUT menu in the "Recent News" area. You will then have to approve the trade by scrolling down to the TRADES portion of the MUT menu and open the "My Trade Block" and select the card that has the offer(s). (Note: If the card does not have the option to add to trade block then it is either a Starter Set, Demo, or Reward card. These cannot be traded or auctioned).


    Once a trade is accepted the achievement should pop. *Please note, I have a friend that made multiple trades and the achievement didn't pop. If this happens to you RESTART your Xbox and the game. You will have to do ANOTHER trade, but it should then unlock.


    Good luck everyone. Have fun!

    TBonePhoneYou do NOT need online pass. You don't even need a gold account. You can do the trade with a second silver account. Just got this yesterday.

    MADDL007My impression was that you need a gold account with online pass for the initial account. Yes, 2nd account can be silver.

    You can also do this yourself if you have 2 Xbox live accounts.

    Simply submit a trade from one account and have the other account accept it. I verified that the submitter unlocks the achievement. I didn't verify if the offerer also unlocked the achievement because that account already had unlocked it.

    The only downside to this is you will have to procure a tradeable asset for your second account. This will involve you acquiring 1000 coins and buying a bronze pack. Hopefully, that should only take you one game.

    EDIT - Alston007 says you don't have to play a game. You can sell some of the starter cards on the 2nd profile and you'll get enough coins to buy a bronze pack. Thanks for the tip, Alston007.

    Fr0zenNovaThe offerer also gets the achievement, you just have to go into ultimate team with him. +1 from me worked out good

    Alston007Good solution - one tweak I used. You can sell some of the starter cards on the 2nd profile and you'll get enough coins to buy a bronze pack. I didint even have to play a game with my second account.

    I just want to point out, that I offered 2 cards to players that ended in a trade and never got the achievement. I posted one to "My Trade Block" and someone offered me something and I got the acheivement. Im thinking you have to trade a card away not trade for a card.
