We have to have an active subscription (either paid or trial) to see the $5 price, right?  If so, looks like the perfect time to redeem the 3 month trial that came with my X.  Don't want to redeem though if it's still gonna say $10

Should be fine. I gameshare and my buddy was able to download gears of war 4.

 

 

I’m pretty sure it works.

 

Alright, I thought it probably would since it's a subscription like Gold. Unfortunately I was only able to buy 3 months before the site crashed  :cry:

Did you see the $5 price before signing up for the free trial?

I didn't have to sign up for the trial. I just signed into my account and the $5 price showed up.

Do all Xbox one Xs come with a 3 month code? I thought the one in the X I bought last week only had a 1 month?

I never had gamepass yet and it's showing for 9.99 for me after I sign in.

 

I have a xbox one x but it's still in the box. I wonder what actually activates this $5/month offer.

Have you guys tried the link in the OP? Even if it says 9.99 for a month once you click on the price (like you’re adding it to your cart sort of) I think you’ll see the 4.99.

Does anyone know if you share the gamepass games with the person you gameshare with?


Game share works fine. My fiancé has downloaded a few games already. Best way I’ve found is have the non-subscribed person just search for the game rather than going through the GamePass list, but honestly should work either way. Just make sure it says “Install” right on the game’s page.

I just put my 1 month free trial in from my X and it now shows the price as 9.99 so its a no go for me. Was worth a shot though. Thanks.

It appears dead- worked for me last night at $5, but now shows $9.99. Some must've hit the wrong button.

I was sitting on a one month code from my X.  I checked last night before redeeming it and had the $5 option.  I redeemed the code, got an extra month for putting auto renewal on for now, so I was good until April 8th before checking again.  I went back to the link in the OP and it still had the $5 option so I bought 3 more months.  When I go there now it's still there so I just bought another month.

Weird that it would be so all over the place with no rhyme or reason to it.

Not getting the promo unfortunately. I would sign up for a year for $60 in a heartbeat.

Has anyone thats never been signed up to gamepass getting the deal? Wondering if you need to be signed up now or previously to get it.

It's either random or Microsoft has some sort of logic that we don't quite know yet.  I was in a party last night and asked everyone to check.  One guy and I both had Game Pass in the past; I had the $5 deal show up, but he didn't.  Then out of the other 3 people in the party, none of whom ever had GP before, only 1 of them saw the $5 deal while the other 2 didn't get it.

I did the same thing this morning: redeemed my one month One X code, got the bonus for auto-renewal and then four more at $5 each. 6 months for $10 out of pocket plus the $10 credit I got from the glitched $5 Bing reward cert last week. That should tide me over. Thanks OP!

I am using the 3 month code that came with my Taco Bell Xbox One X prize and only see it for $9.99 :(

 

Really wish it would show up for $4.99 as I would jump on that. Do I just keep trying to refresh the page?

it did for me. Last night I did the 14 day free trial then immediately added about 20 months worth. It’s still showing up live for me this morning.

Many thanks to the OP!

I cashed out all of my Bing and GS points for MS dollars and managed to get game pass through May 22, 2019 with zero money out of pocket. 😎

Did you activate the 14 day free trial then immediately turn off auto renew or left it on?

No go for me trying this. Still shows 9.99. I have the 3 month for 19.99 promo showing up.

Cool cool cool. I'm good through January for $45 with the Free month from my Scorpio and the bonus month. Had a few error messages but waiting a minute and trying again worked.

 

Saw this last night and didn't bother because I forgot about that Free month code and a single month for $5 would have expired before Sea of Thieves came out anyway. :D

I never activated anything with gamepass and i got the offer. Signed up for 2 years. Figured it will save me money in long run.
