Good until 2/9/2020! With all future 1st party games coming to game pass this should be a pretty great deal.

Xbox has Xbox game pass for half off when you buy one month. Price reflects after sign in. You can buy multiple months and they will stack.

What state do you live in if you don't mind me asking? I have a VPN and maybe region has something to do with it?

Didn't work for me. Keep in mind that I got an Xbox One a couple of months ago and that it came with a free month of this service (somehow extended to TWO months for reasons I have yet to fully understand). Turning off auto-renew was supposed to change the price to five dollars; it didn't.

For those who aren't getting the promo, might want to try this on their website. Go to the gamepass page. If it's giving you the normal price, log out of your account and immediately back in. I did this and it gave me the promo amount, although I also saw it on the dashboard.

Promo is showing up. But not working at the moment. I click Subscribe and it says "Something went wrong"

 

EDIT: Got it to go through once. But then it broke again. Pretty flaky right now.

So I had the promo this morning. After work, I thought I try my free 14 day trial and then stock up, but after activating the trail, it went back to full price.

Same. Guess that's what I get for waiting.

Ended up stocking up a year. I'm pretty skeptical of the service in general. And how many first party titles Microsoft will actually be pushing out. So I'd say a year's worth is a pretty good trial run.

Been trying to see this for the last day or two. Tried different browsers, IPs, devices, etc and nothing is getting the half-off to show up :( Thanks for the heads up though!

Tried this since OP posted and finally had luck. Tried each method a few times. What finally worked for me was clicking on the link, switching to the one month from the drop down and signing in. Once I signed it it showed up as $5 for me. Thanks OP

Well regardless looking at the backlog and the poor selection of games not worth it lol

Wait, gamepass was $1 a month before? Was this a one time thing? I wasn't hip to gamepass at the time but it's a great deal now that all first party M$ games will be on it.


For black friday and then on the christmas sale it was for a dollar each. I doubt it will ever be that price again except for those holidays.

Sure I could have done that, but considering how people said the deal was going in and out, didn't want to risk missing it. I am happy paying for a year for $60.

Well I still see the option to extend for $5 from my Windows app on PC and Xbox. So it's not dead but for some people it was never even born.

I was able to snag this for 2 years. It was broken for me to do but tech support hooked me up. Purchasing Services are acting up.

Was it only showing up as $10 for you but you got them to give it to you for $5? If so, where did you contact them and what did you say?

Tried to get Online Chat to help me on the $5/month... sadly it was a NO GO for me :(

I ended up going through November of 2019. I bought Xbox gift cards to pay for it so I wouldn't have a bunch of PayPal charges. Definitely a worthwhile deal. I initially saw this on the dashboard, but it didn't go anywhere when I clicked. So thanks for posting.

I contacted Microsoft promotion support. Request a call back. They bought what I wanted for 5 a month. It let me buy one then defaulted to 9.99.

Does anyone know if there’s a way to view which games are leaving the service well ahead of time? That would help plan which games to prioritize to play first.

Only two games have ever left at this point, and MS made it clear a month ahead of their leaving (and one was replaced by a newer version of it). So it's a bit hard to guess/tell how it'll get handled long term when there's no real pattern to follow at this time.
