So just to clarify I can have 35 months of either live or game pass because once I join it adds one month correct?

My live is good until 11/2021, and game pass set to renew end of August 2019, is that near the max?

I also have not redeemed the month for the spymaster bing quest.


Yes. Any combination of time between those products will convert to ultimate. For you, you need a six month gamepass code to max the deal, or a 6 month XBL code if your XBL expires before 11/12/2021

So don't add two 12 month gold codes and instead add one 12 month gold code and one 6 month code? Could I add a 6 month and a 3 month instead of another 12 month? I am still a little confused on how many months I might potentially lose by adding 24 months or two 12 month codes.


When I converted I had live out to 6/2022 and game pass to 7/2019. My game pass ultimate goes to 6/2022. For me it just dropped the extra months.

The system will not allow you to have more than three years (36 months) of the service. When you buy the deal in the OP, it will combine the months of Live and Game Pass that you currently have, plus it will add a month. So the "perfect" amount is 35 months. Right now, you have 14 (a year of Live, two months of Game Pass). Adding a year gets you to 26. Your perfect amount after that would be nine months, so yes, a six and a three. If you added another year, you would be at 38, so at a minimum, you would lose three months. A few users early on indicated that if they went above 36, they couldn't do the deal at all, so many of us have played it safe and not gone over. More recently, people have just indicated that they've lost a couple of months which isn't a huge deal.

I got 2 years and 6 months out the deal somehow I know in 2022 I will be haunted for not having the extra  months LOL but so much could change then. fair enough.  I ponied up on this deal I didn't want to be haunted like the gcu.

 

Do 1 month codes that were included in some games stack?

Thanks for the heads up OP! By luck with my remaining gold expiring this month, I was able to purchase 2 1/2 years of gold exactly and got 3 years with the free months for leaving auto renew on. Got Ultimate till 2022!  :xb1:

Had to buy it through my dashboard but it worked.

 

Also fortunate enough to redeem all my codes to add up to exactly 36 months...I don't think I need to buy any games now until 2022 except Cyberpunk 2077 :)

I want to give a shoutout to the trading forum for hooking me up with 12 months Gold. There are good people there and I got it cheaper than I would elsewhere!

 

Well, I got Ultimate for a good long time now. I hope their new games are good!

Thanks guys. I was able to get in on this and max it out to 3 years.

I'm trying to find the best deal on Xbox live gold that doesn't require a wholesale club membership (Costco...).. I need 2 years. Nervous about using the trading forum here because 1) never used it before and 2) sending funds via f/f gives no protection in the case of someone selling bad codes.

Aside from the 51 dollar 12 month codes on cdkeys has anyone found any better deals? (I'm in USA)

Costco is/was selling 12 & 24 months of Live. I grabbed 24 months for 94.99- kicker is you have to be a member or make the purchase through a member's account. But it's a better deal then the 12 months for $50+

I had enough Gold to last until early 2021 and I think that's enough for me...thanks for the heads up, OP!

Would it not be 29 months of gold, 2 months for game pass+unredeemed month for a total of 32, then the ultimate month so 33 months? Then just a 3 month xbox live? I think my live is running out November 4th or 5th

Yeah, you are pretty close to the max already.  If you wanted to drop a 3-month code on just to get full benefit you could, but I wouldn't hesitate to convert either, it should take you to 3/2022 or so.

I believe it's an E3 promo, so the duration of E3...

Just wanted to go on the record and help anyone that may be in my shoes.   Or work my way out of a jam...

 

I had an XBLG subscription that expires on 6/21/2020.  I attempted to add a 24 month code and was denied due to there being a 3 year limit.  Now I'm trying to trade the 2 years down to 21 months so I can attempt to max out the Gamepass deal.  

 

Anyone want 2 years for their 21 Months?

Okay. It's a little confusing. It will be easier for me to find a deal on a 12 month code than a 6 and a 3 or 3 3's but then I would lose 3 months and I might not get the deal. If I didn't do the 3 months of gamepass for $1 in the first place, I wouldn't have this issue but like everyone here, I had no idea M$ was gonna do this Ultimate Promo.

Whew!  Well, something changed because I was finally able to upgrade!  Only took two days and about an hour or more on the phone.  No idea just what happened though, since I was supposed to get an update from Microsoft sometime today about my case and haven't heard anything.

 

I did notice that they're really updated the Game Pass Ultimate pages in the last day, so maybe they've fixed something on the front end?  I also had PCs on my account and not just the Xboxes, but I can't imagine that's particularly uncommon?

If anyone needs a 12 month reach out to member Cobb L 

A few of us were able to stack up.

I cannot say for certain as I've not looked at the coding, but the way it seems, it sounds like people were having problems adding over 3 years of Live *alone*. For example, if they had 13 months of Live and zero months of GP, they could add a 12 month code no problem, but if they tried to add a 24 month code - ERROR. 

 

Similarly, say a person had zero months of live and zero months of GP. Bought 3 12month live codes, entered the 1st code on the site, but didnt turn off the 'free month for recurring billing' (i.e. got 13 months). Enter 2nd code, no problem. Enter 3rd code (which would take them to 37 months) - ERROR.

 

I'm sure that when I converted, I had 34.5 months of Live (got an extra 14 days from redeeming a 1 month code) and 2 months (+six days) of Game Pass remaining from the $1/3mo. offer. With the 1 month that comes with the switching to ultimate, I *should* have been over the 36 month limit combining Live and GP.  However, it converted just fine, simply dropping the extra time and giving me a full 3 years of Ultimate. 

Take that for what you will.

Yeah, the "over the limit" problem seems pretty rare, I wouldn't worry about it too much - as long as you aren't going over 36 months in just one sub (Live or GP) because that will make it impossible to redeem a code.  Your GPU sub should just end June 2022 if you go over a little.

I bought 3 years of live and accidentally had auto renew on so I couldn’t redeem the 3rd, but after about 15 mins with Xbox chat support they got my account set up with the 3 years of ultimate. Don’t know if it’s been mentioned in the thread already but worth a try for those who wanted the full 3 years but couldn’t get it.

Okay thanks. It's clear that there are certain users here that know more about this than others so it's very helpful that we don't all have to call up support.

Some people on the slickdeals thread have said they canceled and were able to reapply the deal. It’s ymmv since it’s a risk, but some people have reported success. If you’re only losing 6 months of potential savings it might be worth it to try.

 

Do you know which page? I'd like to glance over those comments before going full force lol

Wow this is an awesome deal. So I am guessing everyones ultimate game pass does not expire until June 2022? That is what mine is now showing.

I added an extra year so now I'm at 6-12-2021. I'm on the hunt for one more 12 month code and then I will add the Ultimate promo.
