Oh crap wish I had seen this first!  Anyway, I ordered the Target deal.  I don't even need it - just planning to top off my 2 1/2 years with it.  But I still don't have the code.  The Nintendo online membership codes came almost instantly from Target.

I am at 2 years right now I am going to bump it up to 3.   GPU is amazing.  with the flight simulator free it almost pays for itself.

I grabbed one of the digital codes from Best Buy.  Supposedly, GameStop will be selling these three-month cards for $19.99 (limit one) on Black Friday.  As much as I despise GameStop, I plan to use my monthly $5 reward from my Pro membership on one more three-month card to get it down to $15.  Or at least that's the plan.

Hi there, I got my pro subscription today. Do u have any idea when will the monthly $5 reward be sent? Like in a day or a week?

In most cases, they can find the $5 reward on your account when you go into the store.  The $5 rewards can't be used online on digital subscriptions that I'm aware of.  Like I said, I avoid GameStop like the plague, so I'm not really sure.  But my goal is to get in and out of there on Black Friday without them trying to upsell me something that I don't really need.

So the best deals are $20 for 3 months, physical card at GameStop on Friday or $23 at BB/Amazon for 3 months of GPU correct?

I was ready to buy the 3 month GPU for $23 at BB but heard about the EA to GPU conversion. I bought 2 EA Access subscriptions from Shop To for about $44 and immediately received my codes. They were converted to 8 months. So about $5.50/month. Just another option for current GPU subscribers.

I believe that only applies to purchases on the shop and not prepaid cards though correct?  I'm also screwed as I had Origin Access renew (forgot to cancel in time) for my PC which apparently will not convert.

To the post above: I’m not sure but I don’t see why entering a prepaid EA access code via card would be any different. Once Xbox recognized the code and that you’re a current GOU subscriber, it will prompt you that 12 months of EA will be converted to 4 months of GPU.

I was just going by Major Nelson's tweet on this a few months ago as well as XBox Game Pass' twitter post.

They specifically say purchased through XBox.  Hoping that is not the case (not really sure), but just checking before anyone goes out to try and buy a prepaid card.

 

Maybe they just meant redeemed or purchased through XBox (to excluded PS and Origin on PC)...not really sure....

 

 

EA Play members who purchased EA Play through Xbox and join Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will have their EA Play membership automatically canceled and any remaining time will be rounded up and converted to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, we'll have more to share before EA Play arrives!

Is there a reason to get this instead of letting your subscription run out, buying a few years of Xbox gold and upgrading it for $15 (if you already used the $1 offer)?

This is my wonder too. But will there be any 12 month cards and $1 upgrade in 1-2 years.

Just throwing this out here but I had a hell of a time trying to buy a 1 year EA sub to add to my GPU account through Microsoft. I think there's a bug that won't let the transaction complete if the

EA subscription length > (3 years - GPU duration)

When it should really be (EA subscription length)/4

Are they still doing the 1:1 conversion for pre-existing Xbox Gold memberships?

Perhaps you can have the match the price?  They price match all sorts of online retailers.

I assumed this wouldn't work once you upgraded the first time.  Surely someone out there must have tried this though?

It did for me when I signed up for the first time a few weeks back.  Got my 2 1/2 years of Gold converted to GPU.

Eh, perhaps.  But I'm not sure I want to hassle with Target over $6.  Maybe I'll fire off a quick email to see if they'll do it and leave it at that.

 

Edit: well, gave them a call and they price matched it pretty easily.  Thanks for the push!

Got both a digital and physical card 3 month for $22.99 at Best Buy. Not the perfect deal but workable.

OK Xbox Game Pass Ultimate pros.  I want to get my son set up with 3 years for as cheap as possible.

 

I'm giving him my old Xbox One (since I scored a Series X).  He lives away from home now and I already have another son gamesharing my games.  So I just want to set him up with his own Gold -> GPU conversion.

 

What's the cheapest way to do this?  I can get a 2 year Xbox Live Gold code from Costco for $95.  That's how I boosted mine up before converting for $1 a few weeks back.  I know I can also go to CD Keys but they are nearly $60 now for just one year (I had gotten a year of Gold from there back in April for $37).

 

If I go with the $55 from Costco for the 3rd year my total is $150 for the 3 years.  I guess I'm seeing some way maybe to get EA Access cards for cheap?  He isn't signed up for anything at the moment and I don't want to make it too complicated ;).

 

Should I just get 3 years of EA Play from CD Keys for $26.59 each?  Will that actually work?  SO much cheaper than buying Gold memberships!  Do I need to sign him up somehow, or can I redeem these on the XBox and then upgrade to GPU for the $1 and be all set?  Or does EA Play not convert at 100% like Gold does?? (I know after the fact, both convert at a lesser rate - but I wasn't sure about that initial conversion).

Something else I wanted to point out.  When I redeemed the code from Target, it actually gave me 4 months.  It said I got an extra month for changing to auto-renewal.  And I verified that it actually worked.  Before I added the code I was set to expire in June (2023).  But when I added the code it went to October.  Have no idea if they will take the month back if I turn off auto-renewal, but at this point I can just keep it on till I redeem another code in a few months.  I got one of the physical cards from Best Buy and will add it when I have 4 months less than 3 years.

Nah, they don't do take-backs so the method is to turn it off, add time and turn back on for the extra month ad naseum. Seems to only work for newer subs because I could never replicate that deal anymore on my account through various attempts while adding time nowadays. I'm solid for 3 years though thanks to the EA Play glitch that was fixed.

It's the same promo as turning a year of EA Play into 4 months, only during the eve of that whole conversion process for existing accounts the code redemption themselves were adding an entire year of GPU instead of the four months. Many of us that had sat on adding any time were able to add two years of GPU for basically $2/mo. It was a steal.
