Sorry if this is an old inquiry. But I am trying to add in my 12 month Gold code (currently Gold until 11/3/2021 but it won’t let me use the code presumably because it would put me over the 3 year limit. I am willing to “sacrifice” the four months I would lose if it just chopped off the difference because the $1 deal would still make it worth it. Haven’t others been able to get it to the maximum limit?

Now, worst case scenario, I wait until 11/3/2019. I should still be able to then use my 12 month live card bring it to my 3 year max at 11/3/2022, then joint ultimate for the regular $14.99 price in November and still come out ahead?

From what I understand, the $14.99 would be the cost of the Ultimate Game Pass broken down on a monthly basis. It wouldn't be a good deal, at that point. You're better off converting now for a $1, and not have to pay a monthly fee for the remainder of your Gold subscription, or buying Gold in smaller month ranges (3 or 6 month) to try and get as close to the Gold max (36 months) and really maximize the $1 deal.

After dragging my feet, I finally took advantage of this and I'm good through 7/4/2022. If anyone is interested I have a 12 month XBOX Live Gold code and a 3 month Game Pass code that I'm willing to part with at a good CAG price, PM me. Looking for PayPal FF.

 

 

12 month Gold code is gone, still have the 3 months of Game Pass

I purchased 2years to add to my 9 remaining months, and I got the same message as you. I've contacted microsoft support 4 times and it's been over 2 weeks waiting for them to resolve this. I am currently on chat with them to just cancel my subscription. Once that is done, I'll add the 2 years, then Game Pass Ultimate for $1.

 

EDIT: They can't cancel my subscription due to a "system error". Hilarious.

bought a couple 12 mo Gold codes for $50 a piece. I was holding off until the last minute in order to see if there were any $40 deals. Alas, retailers were smart and knew to keep the prices higher. Still, totally worth it for pass and gold for PC and Xbox.

Heads up if you're trying to install certain PC games and the install button won't work, some games force you to install latest greatest windows to get it going

Yes it just worked for me. My live gold ended next month. I was able to find 12 month codes on g2a for $43. Picked up another 6 month and with the free months managed to get ultimate for the $1 until 6/2022. Not bad. I figured they might throw this sale out again, but I didn't want to miss it just in case.  Cag on you handsome bastards.

Bought 3 codes off CDkeys but could only redeem 2 because I did the extra month for turning on auto bill.  Fail

Does anyone have any sort of timeline for when this offer disappears?  Just purchased a physical two year renewal card from BJ's website for 94 dollars.  I know that by the time I have the card the promotion could be gone, but I'll roll the dice.

 

Read through the last couple pages of the thread, also did some Googling, but couldn't really find any information.

I don’t think anyone knows when it’s ending for sure. I’ve seen so many conflicting things now. I doubt it will last much longer, personally.

I currently have 8 months of live gold remaining. I've tried to extend the time and it won't let me. I've talked to 6-7 Microsoft techs through chat support and they just open a case, tell me to wait 48-72 hours, then never respond back to me. The prevailing excuse is that my current subscription "account" has been active for over 3 years, so that will not let me add more time. So I figure I can cancel my subscription, then start a new one with 3 years, but when I try to cancel my subscription on the website, and it tells me to contact support. I contact chat support and they give me the run around again. They aren't able to cancel my account because of "errors" and tell me to wait until my subscription runs out. It has been over a month and the promotion ends in 10 days.

 

Anyone have any ideas on a solution?

I had two months when I got the ultimate game pass upgrade for 1 dollar. I did a live chat. I told them I wanted to cancel because a friend said they wanted to buy a couple years of gold for me as a gift but couldn’t because my Ultimate had already begun.
I requested they cancel my Ultimate and that I understood I would lose the time with no refunds. That was ok by me. Guy asked me to confirm that one more time and I did. He cancelled the membership and I was just a base member with no gold or game pass within about 3 mins flat.

Then I added 3 years of gold via cards and then reconverted for the 15 dollars (not 1 dollar because the account knew I had already done that)

Converted all three years to ultimate.

you might not need to do that though, try the below first...

I know you don’t have Ultimate yet but it’s my understanding you can’t buy more than a year of gold via the Xbox interface. Instead, you have to use the gold cards to add it by entering their code.

This should let you go up to 36 months. Then buy the 1 dollar ultimate upgrade and all 3 years will be converted.good luck!!

I tried to extend with 2 gold cards. It doesn't let me add them. I've also went through the cancellation process twice. The first time, the tech received an error and said he would talk to his supervisor and get back to me within 72 hours. No response for 2 weeks. The second time, the tech flat out said there is nothing anyone could do because of the error. That I'm SOL until my sub expires.  

 

I'll try your route of upgrading for $1, then have them try to cancel my sub. Thanks for the reply!

If they haven’t been able to cancel it then I don’t think upgrading to ultimate will help.

With that said, at least for 1 dollar you’ll have 10 months of ultimate since you can’t get more gold added anyway.

Does gamepass give any additional savings on sales in addition to gold?

Even though I read your post, I added $100 to my Xbox account to add 2 more years to my account. I couldn't extend my membership through the interface. Fortunately, they let you gift a membership. The code appears in your account so you just copy it and add it to your account and you're good to go. Just can't get the extra month's for auto renewal.

No.

I thought they gave you a discount on the gamepass games if you decide to buy them.

The question was does Game Pass offer additional sale savings, and the answer of "no" is correct. It does, as you state, offer a discount to all Game Pass titles, but it does not stack with any other sales.

I paid $1.06 to upgrade to Game Pass Ultimate today. Expected to have 9 months of it. When I check my subscription, it's showing "Recurring billing on 7/23/2022. Next charge $14.99 on 7/23/2022". Not sure what happened, but it looks like I may have 3 years of Ultimate.

When you upgrade, they give you a 1:1 rate on your remaining months of Gold AND Game Pass. If you had, like, 6 months of Gold and 3 of Ultimate,  you should have gotten 9 months.

Where the funky conversion happens is if you try to add a year of Game Pass or a year of Gold after you've converted to Ultimate. THEN the time gets redeemed at something like one month of Ultimate for 3 months of either GP or Gold.

Yeah, I only had 8 months of Gold, no Game Pass. But my account shows an expiration of 7/23/2022, 3 years from now.

In your earlier replies trying to add gold, I wonder if you had that time but the interface was saying otherwise or maybe in support’s attempts to fix the issue the time was added but again, not displaying correctly.

Either way. Looks like it all worked out in the end!

Yes. It still shows on the website. https://www.microsof...vot:overviewtab

 

Just make sure to get as close to the 36 months total (Gold, and/or Game Pass) before joining for $1.

35, remember the $1 gives you a month as well.  It wouldn't be CAG to omit that :)
