(Glitch?) Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $0.05/day

On the Microsoft website, if you go to your Game Pass Ultimate subscription and turn on recurring billing, you can select a plan for $0.05/day, which works out to $18.25/year.

 

Note: If you don't already have Game Pass Ultimate, use the 3 months for $1 promotion to sign up, than turn on recurring billing using the $0.05/day option.

 

Here is the original Reddit thread on it:

https://www.reddit.c..._for_005_a_day/

 

Edit: kidrocklive says his email included the verbiage "We'll email you ahead of time if that price ever changes."  (Mine did not.) Be prepared to cancel if Microsoft ups the price.

 

Edit 2:  People on Reddit and SD are reporting not seeing the $0.05 option anymore. Might be dead.

Super odd, but hey. I'll give it a shot. Signed up for daily recurring payments, and set a reminder to check on 7/16/2021 to see if it works then once my current subscription ends. If this works, in conjunction with the $1 Gold/Game Pass combination, this is by far the best deal in gaming.

Signed up. :X hopefully it's a limited time promotion that they honor and not some mistake.

Don’t really use my one but at this price, you’d be crazy not to take advantage of this deal. Thanks op

If you don't have Game Pass at all, and have never had it, they'll still let you convert all of your remaining Xbox Live Gold to Ultimate Game Pass for $1 for up to 36 months.
Just did it last weekend, have Ultimate now until Oct 2022

Turn on recurring billing, than change your plan to the $0.05 daily plan.

Tempting. That 5 cents a day charge would be annoying though.

I'm in a similar situation. Set til August 2021. Switched over to the $.05 a day plan and the email I got says "Thanks your set. YouR first charge will be 8/4/2021.... Charges daily at $.05 + tax" . If it changes before then I'll cancel but for now I feel set lol

You can set it to use your Microsoft Account Balance.

Wh i might do that then. Im good til august 2021 currently but decides to turn on the 5 cent a day thing. I bet itll be fixed/changed before then. If the glitch is fixed then i dont think we stay locked in for 5 cents a day.

Guess we will see.

Ill just have to remember to turn recurring billing off before august 2021 if it does indeed change to a higher amount.

I only see the option to cancel my plan, nothing about changing it. How do I do that?

There's no way they'd actually do individual charges of $0.05 each day.  They'd lose way more than that on fees.

 

Regardless, I also switched over once my current ultimate sub expires at this time next year.

Sign up. Turn on recurring payments, then select 'change plan.'

No way is this being honored. Email from my sign up says 

 

"You'll be billed every day at $0.05 plus applicable taxes. We'll email you ahead of time if that price ever changes."

 

All they will do is send out an email to anybody that got in on this and notify them of the correction.

This is crazy. I went ahead and changed my plan, but I wonder if there's something else here that we're not catching. Almost seems to good to be true.

But those five cent charges are going to be a burden on my billing statements...

Like someone else said you can change your payment option to Microsoft credit.  So assuming this sticks you can just buy a $20 Microsoft gift card or something and use that as the payment source.  Then it won't matter if it's billing that every day.

I received two emails, one when I turned on recurring billing and another when I changed it to the daily plan.  Neither of them had that line about the price changing.  I wonder if they are trying a bait and switch.

I don't believe PC GP has an option for daily.  only 4.99 montly

 

Ultimate includes pc GP though.
