It's been that way for years. You're lucky you always renewed your PUR or your points would have expired.

He's excited because this is the first time he's noticed points did anything and has $5500 worth. That is all.

I used points to redeem a free subscription yesterday and got the 10k points today.

You did it in-store? I remember you asked if the free subscription coupon worked online. So you weren't able to, right?

Man, people on Reddit are really flipping out over the Gold increase. Guess I thought more people were already on GPU. Regardless, it definitely was a stupid move at this time with the pandemic and all. Not sure what MS was thinking. They should at least make F2P games not require Gold as a gesture of goodwill since all the other consoles don’t require their online subs.

It affects you too. Once your current GPU sub ends, how are you going to renew? With the conversion deal and stacking 3 years of discounted XBL Gold, you paid $151 for 3 years of GPU. The next best price has been about $25 for 3 months, so you're looking at paying $100 for 1 year of GPU when previously $51 more got you an additional 2 years. So what you're going to pay in the future is double the price of what you already paid from the conversion deal. That's if there are still deals by the time your GPU expires.

Bumping this... looking to do an order later today and have enough points to redeem pro membership so figure why not do that first but gamestop.com is very vague on how it actually works.

It's always been a store-only coupon AFAIK. If you don't mind heading into a store during the pandemic, the promo for 10k points for signing up might still be running. You should also still get the $5 bonus coupon on your receipt if they're still doing that, but it expires at the end of the month.
