Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is only $1

 

https://www.microsof...te/cfq7ttc0khs0

 

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is a new subscription option that gives you Live Gold and Game Pass for one monthly fee.  With this deal, you will get the first month of Ultimate for $1, plus it will convert any remaining months you have on your existing subscriptions to Ultimate (up to a maximum of 36 months/3 years).

 

For example, you currently have 6 months of Live Gold.  Sign up with this deal and get 7 months of Ultimate ($1 for first month, 6 months of Live Gold converts to 6 months of Ultimate).

 

Second example: you have 9 months of Xbox Live Gold left and you have 6 months of GP left.  First month for $1 + 9 months + 6 months = 16 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

 

Edit:

Additional tips below.

 

Once subscribed/converted to Ultimate, if you go to the Xbox website, you can turn off recurring payments if you don't want to pay $15 after your sub ends.

 

Potential way to maximize your $:  The longest possible Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription is 3 years.  If you can find Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass deals for cheap, buy enough so the total of those plus your current remaining months <= 36 months.  Redeem all those codes, sign up for Ultimate, and get 3 full years of Ultimate.

Did they ever fix the problem with bing rewards?

Holy cow I almost went right past this post, not noticing it was Game Pass ULTIMATE. Your math is correct and this is amazing! I had two months left on my $1 Game Pass trial, but I had nearly two years remaining on Live Gold since I stocked up during a recent discount. I'm now a Game Pass Ultimate subscriber through July 2021. Thank you!

In hindsight, I probably should've put Ultimate in all caps.  Haha.  I'm good for a full 3 years.  What a crazy deal.

I have mixed feelings about Game Pass Ultimate. This is a good deal but I'm worried about how much it will cost in the future. $40/year for Gold is reasonable ... If GPU turns out to be $120/year I might balk.

Both of mine were set to renew in Nov 2020. Now it says I have both until May 2022. Nice

I am confused...My gold runs out this month and I do not have gamepass. What's the best way to take advantage of this for long term?

So this isn't a deal that you can just stack up on, basically it's a way to get long term ultimate by combining the time of your gamepass and gold which equals out to the length of time you have on ultimate. I did this and basically just added a month to my current subscription since I only had Gamepass through August so now I have gamepass and gold till September.  Didn't work out for me as it stands but it's something that can probably work out a deal for.

Wow. Thanks OP. Gotd was good til 1/2020, had a month and a half left on that 3 months GP for a dollar, finally redeemed two 3 month GP codes I’d gotten from Bing rewards. Add $1, and I’m set with Ultimate until October 2020!

Honestly, anyone who pays anything close to full price for Gold or GP (GP especially) is doing it wrong.

 so you have to be a Game Pass and Gold member first before you can convert to ultimate?  Or just a Gold member?

So I have ~2 years remaining on my Gold but do not have Gamepass. If I get this Ultimate Pass, will I have both Gold and Gamepass for ~2 years?

I have about 2 years of Gold left and 6 months of GamePass. This sounds like a no brainer or am I misunderstanding?

You will end up with 30 months of ultimate pass.

I just did it.  My XBL expired in November 2021.  Just upgraded for $1.  No Gamepass needed.  I didn't qualify for the $1 gamepass trial as i had done it before.  Now I have Ultimate to December 2021.

If it sounds too good to be true, it’s one helluva deal! Go for it!

one or the other gives you both. They are combining them together to make ultimate

no just one for instance I have 2 years of gold and 1 year of game pass it adds up to the max of 36months. Basically if you can find either for cheap add that to your account then it will turn into ultimate  DO NOT SIGN UP for ultimate until you have maxed it out otherwise I do not think you can just use a Gold or gamepass sub to add to ultimate

Sweet! Thanks for the confirmation. 

 

Edit: Just did it myself and it worked just as you confirmed. Have Gold and Gameplass now for ~2 years. Pretty cool.

 

Now my next question is when I get enough Bing points to redeem for a 12-month Xbox Live membership in the next half year, will that automatically add 12 months to my Xbox Game Pass Ultimate sub? Or will that just separately add only to Xbox Gold? Or will it prevent me from even redeeming it since I have the Ultimate sub and not just the Gold sub?

Small point in the frenzy, but the actual math is, months of Gold remaining + months GP remaining + 1 (the month of Ultimate you get for the dollar).

I don't play xbox too often anymore, recently got the three months of gamepass for void bastards and outer wilds. Wondered why no one has linked the best deal for a year of gold? 

 

I know PSN is $40 a year for the E3 deals, I think I might try to find a similar deal for Xbox live gold and grab a year or two then add this.

I maximized my xbox live gold using some old codes and microsoft rewards codes to get it out to 6/3/2022. I had gamepass until 7/9/2019. I did the upgrade and now I have Ultimate until 6/9/2022!

Best deal I could find right now is 12 months of gold on cdkeys for $48. I just bought a year and with my existing gold and game pass I have ultimate til Jan. 2021.

I got in on the beta deal where it converted my gold and game pass into ultimate. Can I add more time now? What happens if I buy another gold and add it?

Wow that worked out great! Got almost right at 3 years with my current Gold sub running through Feb 2022, having a little under 2 months left on my current GP and the additional month put it at about 2 weeks shy of 3 years. Thanks for the heads up OP; I had no idea about this! Well, now I don't feel as pressured to play GP games all the time to get my "money's worth" (my full $1 for 3 months worth, lol).

Great deal! I had Gold until August 2021, and just redeemed a 2 month free trial I never used from when I got my One X Scorpio, so now I’m locked into Ultimate until 11/2021. Awesome!

You could have gotten it in the trading forums here for around $40. A few have sold for as low as $35. I'm selling a year myself for $40, so if anyone needs one, get them now. You don't want to join the masses looking for deals later this afternoon when Ultimate is formally announced.

I got in on the beta deal where it converted my gold and game pass into ultimate. Can I add more time now? What happens if I buy another gold and add it?

People on Reddit are saying that you'll able to add more time now and it'll convert based on the value of the code. For example, a month of Game Pass will convert to 20 days of Ultimate.

According to the Reddit post about this, if you add a 3 month xbl subscription it'll convert to a 1 month ultimate. If you add a one month xbl, it'll convert to 20 days. This is after you've done the initial conversion. So I'm guessing a one year xbl gold would turn into 6 months ultimate but that hasn't been tested yet.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is only $1

 

https://www.microsof...te/cfq7ttc0khs0

 

As I understand it, the remaining months on your Xbox Live Gold + remaining months on your current Game Pass subscription will be combined into your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

 

Example: You have 9 months of Xbox Live Gold left and you have 6 months of GP left.  9 months + 6 months = 15 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

 

Edit:

Additional tips below.

 

Once subscribed/converted to Ultimate, if you go to the Xbox website, you can turn off recurring payments if you don't want to pay $15 after your sub ends.

 

Potential way to maximize your $:  The longest possible Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription is 3 years.  If you can find Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass deals for cheap, buy enough so the total of those plus your current remaining months <= 36 months.  Redeem all those codes, sign up for Ultimate, and get 3 full years of Ultimate.

 

Wow ty OP, best deal of the year! Simply extend Xbl Gold for 3 yrs and get Gamepass for that amount of time for $1
