    I literally cancelled my Xbox live Gold yesterday, any idea if I will be eligible for this seeing as I would be an inactive user

        The 30/09/2018 date is only for Xbox Game Pass and so it doesn't apply to Xbox Live Gold. e.g. "Xbox Game Pass 1-month offer only valid for new subscribers or users who canceled their subscription before 30/09/2018."

        For Xbox Live Gold it just says not valid for existing subscribers but it says it's for new members. Whether that includes accounts with an expired Live Gold subscription i do not know.

        •  

          Ah well I’ll give it a go and report back

        •  

          Reporting back to confirm I have the $2 offer available when I log in, having just cancelled my subscription 3 days ago.

          Score!! Thanks OP!

    Wish they would do a deal like this for ps plus!

  •  

    This is perfect for playing crackdown when it releases (with gamepass)

  •  

    I hope this deal will work for inactive user.

    For new user, GamePass is $1 currently (open the browser in incognito mode):
    https://www.xbox.com/en-AU/xbox-game-pass

    However, it has to be new (cannot be inactive) subscriber.

    We'll know in 2 days.

    •  

      I'm an inactive XGP subscriber and it shows $1 in my account.

      •  

        Add that to your cart and see if it is actually still showing $1. It shows $1 for me, but once added it shows $10.
        Hopefully, this will change tomorrow.

    •  

      Just looked. It’s working for inactive users. I lapsed last week and can claim for $2

    Awesome, now i just need a deal on a xbox one!

  •  

    I still haven't used the 14 day trial of gold. Is there any way to combine that trial with this deal?

  •  

    The newest Tomb Raider game was just added to gamepass and Crackdown 3 is releasing soon aswell.

    Good time to sign up.

  •  

    I've had this 360 for years, literaly just got off phone confirming my jbhi fi 3 month code and entered into xbox! open ozbargain this is at the top of list! ahhhhhhhh!

  •  

    For people who signed up previously, did the 2 months automatically apply upon sign up and can you cancel before they are up?

    Don't trust Xbox with promotional offers after the issues I had with the "buy 3 and get 3 months free of live" last year.

    • +2 votes

      To get that extra month free, you need to be a new subscriber / user. If you have signed up previously, and Microsoft had offered you the extra month by keeping auto-renew on at the time of signing up, then it is unlikely Microsoft will offer you again. Some OZBers reported Microsoft offered that to them again, but it has yet to happen to me.

      For GamePass, signing up as a new user (create a new account) isn't a big deal since you don't collect any games in GamePass. For XBLive Gold, while you can share the free games when that new account has active subscription, that free game collected can only be played when that new user has an active XBLive Gold.

        Thanks netsurfer. We can always rely on you to provide us with good information/tips on Gamepass.

        I'm thinking of using an old Xbox Live account (not my main account) I have to activate this offer incase a better or same offer comes up again in the future. When you "free games collected," are you referring to Games With Gold? Didn't think you could play any Gamepass games after subscription expires - unless they've been purchased or acquired free previously with Gold?

        •  

          Yes, Game with Gold games. For example, Feb 2019 ones:

          Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon - End Feb 28
          Super Bomberman R - Starts Feb 16
          WRC 6 - Ends Feb 15

          So, it will come down to whether you think those games are worth collecting on your main account or not.

            @netsurfer: Thanks for clarifying mate. 👍

            @netsurfer: If you really want to go down the road of “never paying for Xbox live and making a trial account every month” the 360 games are still playable after Xbox live is expired.

          •  

            @netsurfer: For some odd reason I still can't see Bloodstained on the list. Any idea why?

            •  

              @TLZ: It’s not available in Australia. You will need to claim it from another country

              USA for example
              https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/bloodstained-curse-of-the-...

              •  

                @cruizerdog: I did that and when I click install on my device, it doesn't do anything. Nothing downloads on my Xbox :/

                Do I have to switch regions to US as well?

                •  

                  @TLZ: From the sounds of it, you have already added the game to your account. The “install to device” is just a feature that remotely adds the game to your console download queue. I believe you can only do this if you have set your Xbox as your “Home Console”.

                  Me personally, I can’t remote queue :( I have my home set on my niece’s Xbox so she can gameshare with me so remote installs get sent to her.

                    @cruizerdog: It is set as my home Xbox, so not sure what's going on. I don't know how else to download it now. I can't see it on my Xbox.

                    Edit: I just changed my console location to US and it worked.

                    •  

                      @TLZ: Yep. I didn’t even notice that it wasn’t in my games library. Lost amongst the backlog

                      Just did the same. Changed to the US store on console

    I love gamepass!
    No need to buy most games now. Either wait for gamepass. If the games special? like Halo or Gears and Forza. I can buy them anyway!
    Gamepass Just got the new Tomb Taider. Ready to try it.
    I wish sony and nintendo had these services.
    Not streaming games like psnow,my internet is way too crap for that

  •  

    Keep buying cheap gold just for free games XD

    Only have 360 don't even have XBox One.

    •  

      If you're currently utilising it for online play and the free 360 games, then I think it's worth it. After all,you get to keep the 360 games. The Xbox One games are a bonus should you ever upgrade.

      Half the time the Xbox One games aren’t that good anyway. I have more fun with the 360 games

      •  

        I know what you mean. It had some great games and was still my main console till late last year.

    Yesss my gamepass just lapsed, perfect timing!

    •  

      I have the same thought. However the current $1 for a month deal isn’t available for lapsed membership. Also saw a comment that you might have to have been lapsed from at least August 2018

    •  

      Nevermind. Seems to work for newly lapses accounts

  •  

    Just a heads up. The $2 for 2 months seems to be active today 11/02/19 as I just used it when setting up my new Xbox One X.

  •  

    Bah, just as I'm on a 14 day gold trial. I wonder if it can be reverted somehow?

    •  

      When will the trial ends? Before 21/02? If it ends between 17/02 to 21/02, then it would be pretty good timing (in terms of collecting max number of free games).

      •  

        Trial ends on the 27th. Wish I didn't redeem it. :)

        • +1 vote

          Create a new account on or before 21/02. XBox Live Gold and GamePass are shareable across accounts on the same home console. Or, check with Microsoft support to see if they can do anything for you.

  •  

    I will wait until the last day before the deal expired, mine just expired on 2Feb.

  •  

    I bought the XBox to use as a media player, so lets see if two months free of both of these will sway me from the "PC master race"

      GamePass PlayAnywhere titles are playable on PC as well (so you can play Forza Horizon 4 on your PC as well - just login to Microsoft store with the same account on Windows 10). Let's hope Crackdown 3 is a PlayAnywhere title too.

      I have an XB1X… but I know the truth is… (Unfortunately), games play best on …. PC.

  •  

    Going to get it. But, no time to play :(.

  •  

    Got it.
    Thanks OP

  •  

    I wonder if, after getting the Game Pass, it's possible to buy it as a gift for a mate, who'd do the same?

  •  

    Also, while you're at it, see if you're eligible for a refund.

    Quote:

    "Subscription Refund

    We identified a number of Microsoft accounts that are due a refund for overlapping subscriptions.

    This occurred if you purchased a new subscription that overlapped with one you already had.

    Continue to check if your account is eligible for a refund."

    Why do Microsoft put so much effort into making it hard as possible.

    On my Xbox One the deal for 2 months for $2.00 is on the front page. When you click on it you go to an Xbox Live & Game Pass page. Click on Xbox live and it says '1 month for $2.00' - No mention of the 2nd month for free.
    Then when you try to proceed it says $2.00 for 1 month + tax AND $10.95 for the next month. Because I have $10.19 in my Xbox account it says 'How are you going to pay for the remainder'

    So do i have to pay $10.95 to get the $2.00 deal ?

    It's clearly stated if you go to the xbox page on a PC but I havent tried to go further yet.
