4. Download the games onto the Xbox using my kid's Game Pass, then switch to my account to play them.


Set your kid’s account as the “home account”. Then you can just download while logged in as your account too.

This is how game sharing works. I set my nephews Xbox as my home Xbox years ago for Xbox live and now game pass. My account is never logged in on his console unless I’m there. Then of course any game he buys I get too since my Xbox is set as his home Xbox.

Did you load up three years of Gold, get it converted to Ultimate and get the free additional months too?

Can confirm, i just bought 3 years of Gold before they double the price everywhere. I added each 12 month sub (avoiding the +1 month for recurring) to total up to 36 months. Then I did the 3 months of Ultimate for $1. Account now shows i have Ultimate through 3/21/24.

What do you mean double the price everywhere?

Microsoft announced today Gold will now be 59.99 for 6 months instead of 12 months.

Yep. I had been debating it for a while...i guess this was Microsofts plan haha. Costco has 24 months for $95 and 12 months for $55 but theyre 1 per member only if youve ever bought from them. Target also has 12 month cards for $60 and redcard saves $3 each.

 

I supposed stores will either discount the cards that have the 59.99 price on them if they dont sell through them quickly...that or they will be pulled from shelves. Didnt wanna risk it since the conversion to Ultimate might change in the future as well, the wording already seems to have changed as it says conversion cannot be reversed and current time will be converted at the current rate. I took some screenshots of the FAQ saying 1 month gold = 1 month ultimate just in case. I could definitely see them changing this at some point since the conversions once youre already Ultimate are something like 12 months gold redeems for 3-4 months ultimate.

Anyone having issues getting the $1 upgrade to work? It keeps giving me only the option for the $14.99/mo option. Gold was expired and just bought 3 more years.

I don’t have a membership at Costco so either Amazon or target.

Is this what you see? And you got the three-year upgrade still?

someone posted in another thread that you can do the XBLA to GP(U) conversion twice.  I was under the impressions it's a one time thing.   Has anyone done it twice?

Looks like Microsoft got so much backlash they are canceling the price increases:

I did it twice. The first time was for 18 months or so. Once my GPU ended, I added another 18 months of gold before I upgraded to GPU a second time. The only difference was that I paid $1 for the first conversion but had to pay for 1 month at full price for the 2nd conversion.

I would’ve added more time but didn’t want to spend anything out of pocket.

It only works on expired game pass subscriptions and possibly expired gold subscriptions. If so the $1 link showed up on my main menu. If it does not, creating a new account from scratch will force the $1 offer to show up.  My account was a 2 yr old unactive acct that I last used for an old XBOX 360 that had expired gold and game pass.

 

also everytime I redeem cards for the gold I took the option to not auto renew, as that way when it expires I can do this all over again. 

Do you have to wait until your current Game Pass subscription is over? I have about two months left on mine, and it doesn't seem to work for me.

Also Costco.com has a good deal for 2 years of Gold for $95 if you need to extend the gold membership.

If anyone was having the same confusion I was, the box that pops up saying you will be charged $14.99 a month means AFTER your gold runs out. You only pay the $14.99 once to sign up for GPU and it converts the rest of your gold.

 

So what my path was:

 

1. Had GPU 1st time

2. Let it expire with my gold

3. Bought three years of gold, did not add the extra months

4. Joined ultimate, got pop up saying my gold will be converted, sign up for 1 month for $14.99

5. Get charged $14.99+tax once, rest of gold is converted, turn off GPU recurring

6. GPU+Gold until 2024
