I'm not in the Xbox ecosystem at all, but I feel tempted to jump in on this just in case I ever get an Xbox One X...

How long will this deal last for?

I have one but rarely use it.  Decided to get this anyway since it includes the PC game pass.

 

I ended up doing $41 for 14 months

What if I currently have game pass maxed out and live maxed out. Do I not get my 6 years?

It says up to 3 years total on the page to upgrade.  Sounds like an unwise move for you, sadly.

Nope. Unfortunately you already have 3 years of Ultimate as is.

 

Edit: Maybe they will continue the conversion and in 18 months you can do it for 3 years of Ultimate?

Thanks for pointing this out. Saved me a ton of money combining the sub. I'm good through 2022 for both now.

I’m not in the Xbox ecosystem either and I’m only really somewhat interested in playing their games on PC. It seems like it would be cheaper to create an Xbox gold sub and then upgrade than just normally subbing to the PC game pass.

Okay, had 17 months combined so jumped on the bus and paid the dollar without thinking about buying a 12 month gamer pass and/or 12 month xbox live code.  Question is - if I were to add another gamer club and/or xbox live card code, would it also convert to ultimate?  If not, 17 months is nothing to scoff at.  But curious.

The word is there won't be a direct 1:1 conversion after. Something more like 3:2. So you will get some credit towards Ultimate but not all.

12 months of gold + 7 months of game pass + 1 month ultimate = 20 months.

Ah didn’t realize that’s how they did the math, super cool. Hopefully gears 5 is gamepass

So the first conversion is 1:1?   So if I have 30 months of game pass + 4 months of gold + 1 month of ultimate it equals 35 months of ultimate?

My gold was up December, my game pass 3 months for a dollar was up in July. Somehow this all calculated out to April 21, 2020.

Not a bad deal, Xbox Live was to expire 5/2021, now have Game Pass Ultimate through 6/2021.

It's 1:1 before you upgrade.  After that word is it's 3:1, so a year of live card is 4 months.

I do not have Gold but I did take advantage of the $1 for 3 months of gamepass deal which is set to expire in August. This deal will give me gamepass ultimate until September correct?

When it comes to the expiration date and auto renew is off is the only thing that could be subscribed to at that point is ultimate only or could a 12 month code be inserted at that point?

Sit it would be 72000 point for a year of ultimate when live go on sale for  24000 point on bing?

They aren't getting rid of seperate Gold or GP. You can subscribe to one or the other after your sub is over. Just make sure to turn off auto renewal.

I only have GamePass for another 2 months (8/19/19). No Gold.

So for a $1, I'll get GP + Gold till 8/19/19?

That's the way I interpret the FAQ, yes you would have to renew as Ultimate. According to the reddit post though, you could still use a 12 month card, but you would only get 4 months of Ultimate in exchange.

 

I don't know what happens if you let Ultimate lapse (turn off auto-renew). Say your Ultimate expires 7/2019, if you put in a 12 month Gold code in 8/2019 are you still considered Ultimate or does it revert back to Gold only?
