3 Months game pass ultimate for $1

Only works if you have normal PC game pass, not ultimate apparently. Or if you're a new subscriber.

It worked for me, I only had the PC Game Pass before.

    Anyone having the issue where the Join button is greyed out.

    Says below: "Xbox Live Gold membership requires an Xbox Live Gold Account.Sign up here." But then when I try to sign up to Gold it won't even let me do that.

      All good figured it out - joined the PC for $1 and then ultimate. Xmas break sorted cheers OP!

    I signed up for the 1 month for $1 offer for the PC gamepass about two weeks ago.

    This offer upgraded me to Ultimate Game pass (whatever the difference is).

    Note that it extended me for a total of 3 months from my original subscription date, not an additional 3 months. Still, happy with the extra 2 months for $1. Plenty of time to finish The Outer Worlds.

    •  

      Weird…I have done exactly the same thing as you, but it added this to my total time. So I still have 10 days of my original month, then the 3 months are added on.

      •  

        Yup it added onto my total time, I had 1ish months left, now have until end of march.

      •  

        Yeah I thought it had just done 3 months from the start but then I looked and it was using the silly american date system!

      If you are after only the PC portion of the Xbox Game Pass aka Xbox Game Pass For PC then set a reminder to unsubscribe in 3 months time before the next billing cycle as they charge $15/month for the Ultimate Game Pass whereas the Xbox Game Pass For PC is only $4.95/month for now while in beta (subject to change when it exits beta maybe).

      So you save $10/month when the 3 months are up if you want to continue just for the PC applicable part.

      I don't own an xbox so the pc game pass appeals to me mostly but I tried it for a week and can live without it for now too busy these days anyways to play anything just collecting my library for retirement age.

        You can cancel the recurring billing straight away and keep access until the end date (I did this as I didn't want to forget!)

        •  

          Oh nice til I thought you could only cancel which would terminate your subscription quickly like by the next billing cycle didn't know you could just turn off autorenewal and that was it

      •  

        you dont need to do any reminders, just go into your account and turn off auto-renewal immediately. It's very easy now, not like 2008 when to turn off auto-renew with Xbox you had to phone america and tell some dickwad about it, god that was annoying, lol.

    Outer Worlds for $1..yay. Thanks OP.

    • +1 vote

      Outerworlds for $1 or Fallout 76 First for $100 (after you paid for the game already)?

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA just kidding.

    •  

      Only for Xbox?
      IS it not available for PC? :(

      •  

        I just joined, it is available to install when you join the 3 months ultimate. Other noted games: Gears 5, Dead by Daylight, Dishonored 2, Rise of the Tomb Raider, marvel vs capcom ultimate..

        The library is not as extensive as the other launchers but for $1, I think it's worth it..

        •  

          but install on PC? or XBOX only?
          I've already got ultimate, but i can't get it on PC?

          Oh nevermind.. found it through the MS store app

  •  

    Only thing I have noticed after cancelling the recurring billing is that there is no way to restart the PC game pass. I am therefore assuming you have to sign up for that anew at the end of the ultimate time.

    If you use shopback, does it mean you get $1.60 back and thus you make 60 cents?

  •  

    what does ultimate give you over regular game pass which i have?

  •  

    I just noticed under "buy", there is a opinion to buy it as a gift?
    Anyone try buying it as a gift and still get it for $1?

  •  

    Has anyone been able to determine how long this deal will last?

    I'm currently on Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta) with about a week left, and the $1 for 3 months offer keeps changing to $15.95/month. Sadface.

    Mentioning just in case anyone else in the same boat figures out how to get the deal!

    • +1 vote

      same here, already used the previous offer and shows at 15.95

      •  

        So I cancelled my current sub, got my last dollar back, re-subbed for another month for another dollar, then tried to yoink this Ultimate deal again, but still no joy. I am slightly ashamed at the lengths I'll apparently go to to avoid paying more than a dollar for Game Pass!

          Create a new account would be easier. Use that account to download new games. Other accounts on the PC/XBox should be able to play GamePass games.

          •  

            @netsurfer: Had considered that, wasn't sure how it'd work, specifically, whether I'd need another Microsoft account… seemed like a massive hassle but you're right, worth a shot!

    •  

      still a good deal specially if you have credits from Microsoft rewards

  •  

    Tempted to get because of Red Dead Redemption (1).

  •  

    I just got it. 3 months was added on

  •  

    Aww if only i didn't get the $1 ultimste deal earlier good deal op.

  •  

    weird mine says it'll run out in May after paying the $1 then cancelling recurring payments.

  •  

    Is there an easy way to see which games are for PC once you've signed up? I don't have an xbox and I'd like to see what's available.

  •  

    If you're only on PC (not xbox), can't you just keep starting a new email address and abusing cheap game pass?

    I'm happily running Win 7 with no stupid MS login (no need for gunk like MSO Online or their dropbox equivalent).

  •  

    I'm currently on the promo for 1 dollar, if I purchase this, can I downgrade later on to the normal 4.95 one once the promo ends?

    •  

      I'm sure you can, I just made a new account and purchased this (Currently on $1 for a month of Ultimate)

      Have only played the outer worlds, and so i copied the Save files from the save location and it worked.

      Now i won't have to worry about finishing the game too quickly :)

    My 2 months for $2 ultimate subscription ran out a few days ago and tonight I was able to renew with regular game pass through this link https://www.xbox.com/en-AU/xbox-game-pass/pc-games for just $1 for the first month, 4.95 a month after that. OPs deal showed as 15.95 for me so anyone else who is in the same boat and has an expired ultimate sub, regular game pass is only $1 at the moment.

  •  

    On the link, it says I can get one month of Ultimate for $1, and 3 months for $1. What are the odds these would stack? Or is it a case of if I take the 3 month offer the 1 month offer becomes unavailable and vice versa.

    I am eyeing this off for PC btw.

  •  

    Weird. I'm a PC subscriber, but it's not $1 upgrade for me. It's $15.95 :(

  •  

    Very off topic but has any PC gamers with Logitech mice found a way to bind custom setups to Xbox games without using the "set as default" workaround?

  •  

    Are any games to keep for the pc side? Or do i have to keep renewing the sub to be able to play

  •  

    Thanks OP. About 2 weeks ago subscribed for the $1/month deal for PC Outerworlds action (just chose the standard sub, not ultimate) and now was able to upgrade to ultimate pass $1 for 3 months.

    $2 for 4 months access to Xbox PC pass games, excellent. More time to catch up on the backlog!

  •  

    Does it still work to stock up on Xbox Live Gold first then get the time converted to ultimate when you sign up?

  •  

    I missed out on this one because I wasn't paying attention, and paid my whole $1 as a result. Don't be like me.

  •  

    i have the normal game pass, if i buy this, will the 3 month stack? or the new 3 month replace my existing remaining time (less than 3 month)?

  •  

    Has anyone seen when this deal expires? Just ordered a new console for Christmas, ideally wanna wait as long as I can before I activate this as I won't use it before 25th!

    •  

      Ideally, you'd want to open before Christmas anyway as there will be system plus game updates.

    Thanks OP. I want to try Forza Horizon 4 on PC, any recommended controllers for PC? I have a PS4 and I heard you can use dualshock controllers on PC games? Imma ryt?

    •  

      I mean you can use your PS4 but I don't think it would natively work with Horizon. You might need extra software to get it to work?

    •  

      You'll need to install DS4Windows and "Hide DS4 Controller" in the settings. Try googling for instructions.

  •  

    i dont have an XBOX but this cost savings is too good to pass up!!

  •  

    Does that mean this has now expired?

  •  

    Just a tip if you're already an Ultimate subscriber and it's showing as the full price for renewal. Wait until your subscription actually expires and then the price should update to show as $1 for 3 months. This is how I got it.

  •  

    How does this work exactly with existing paid up live sub for another year or two? When joining this $1 deal:

    Upgrading your membership
    Joining Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will upgrade your remaining Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass membership(s) into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for the same amount of time, up to a total of 36 months. All conversions are final;

    So if I have gold for another couple years, what exactly gets converted? Just 3 months? Then if I cancel what happens to the rest of my paid live time?

    •  

      For completeness, I had live paid up until 2/2022 and paid my $1. Now showing in my account:

      Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
      AU$47.95 every 3 months, next charge on 5/5/2022 with PayPal

      So upgraded my existing paid live sub to ultimate, and added 3 months.
      All for $1.
      Awesome sauce, thanks! :)
