Ok, shameless plug: I’m selling a 12 month Gold code in the trading forum if anyone’s interested in getting in on this deal 😊

Alrighty.  Coming in here way late, and maybe this has been discussed?  Maybe everyone will just think I'm paranoid?

 

I haven't done the deal.  Primarily because I don't think I'd even use it.  (Had our first baby last year; barely play modern games currently.)  

 

The line that trips me up on this deal  is "All conversions are final."  I assume this means any of you taking your Live accounts into these accounts will then be "stuck" at an Ultimate account forever?  My gut feeling just thinks, a few years from now, all of the Ultimate accounts will be stuck paying high prices per month/per year with the only way out is to cancel your account out.  (Not a big deal if you don't care about your Gamertag, I guess.)

 

So I've waffled back for forth, and just decided to leave it alone.  These days, I barely get on Live a couple times a month to play a few Rocket League matches or something.

No, it just means that if you want to go back to basic Gold you have to let your GPU subscription expire first, then start up a Gold subscription.

So I just used the 1$ month of GPU and now I have activated 12 months gold and thinking to make it 3 years
my question is if I activated the 3 years or less and the joined the ultimate pass for the regular price (14.99$), this will convert the total period to Ultimate pass?

Thanks.

The $1 month of Game Pass Ultimate would have already converted the months you had to GPU, if I'm understanding the question correctly.

Just means if you want to cancel ultimate you dont get your gold/gamepass time back. You start at zero. You can resub to Gold/Gamepass after ultimate runs out. They aren't holding your account hostage lol.

I already used the one month 1$ GPU and has been expired, at the moment I only have 23 months xbox live
my question is, now if joined the ultimate pass for the regular price (14.99$), this will convert the total period to Ultimate pass?

I think a few people have had their months stack with the $14.99 sub.

I'm confused.. have Xbox Gold until 10/19/2020 - got the $1 Ultimate pass and now have Gold until 11/19/2020, on my subscriptions page, it says next month $14.99, next charge 11/19/2020 - thought this is was supposed to be some kind of super deal? I get a month of ultimate for $1 (yeah, that's cool).. Oh and Xbox is down ATM

You should have Game Pass ultimate until 11/19/2020.

The way to successfully do this deal was to extend your gold or game pass membership (not both) as far as possible (3 years max), and then do the $1 ultimate deal, which converted your membership to ultimate for the entire remaining time. Ultimate is gold + game pass.

This the answer for my question from Microsoft support:

Thank you for patiently waiting. I've got great news! Higher support was able to confirm that so long as you don't have an existing Ultimate subscription, the 1:1 conversion ratio will still apply. This is true even if you've already signed up for the promotion previously. If you redeem your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate code today, you will have 22 months + 3 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in total

And it's worked for me.

Does anyone know if this stacking deal still works? I don't want to buy a lot of Gold time if it doesn't. And just to make sure I got it right, if I buy say 3 years of Gold, I would be paying 1 dollar for 3 years of Game Pass? Thanks in advance :)

The conversion page is still up so I assume the deal is still working.  You can only convert once so fill your account with up to 3 years of Gold, then convert (you can't do it piecemeal).  One of the guys in the Steam thread did the conversion within the last 7-10 days and it worked, well after the original "cut off" (which is no longer shown on the page)

Of course the rare time I'm looking for Gold, CDkeys doesn't have a great deal going lol. Hopefully this still works around Black Friday time.

Just so I understand correctly: I redeem codes to get my account up to three prepaid years of XBL Gold, then after I have done that sign up for the XBGP Ultimate trial, and at that point it converts the entire three years to XBGP Ultimate?

Is that correct?

Correct and if you have any Game Pass time it'll add it all together

You mean the one from last week that's one month?  It's on the dashboard and only for new users.

I felt the same way for several months, but the free three months of Game Pass Ultimate for $1 deal was going to cost me less than the best deal on Gold that I saw for Black Friday ($15 for three months of Gold at Walmart) and they give you the option to cancel the recurring billing if you don't want to do that.  Basically, I made the decision to go for it based on the fact that I like getting the Gold discounts.  But once I saw how many games were on Game Pass and the quality of what they were offering for download, I regretted not doing it sooner.
