    Does any one know if it still stacks if you buy a year of xbox live to get ultimate

    • +4 votes

      That deal is still on, but at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/xbox-game-pass-ultimate/cf... instead - looks like a strictly superior deal to the one the OP linked? If you click 'More' on that page it specifically says it will upgrade up to 3 years worth of xbox live

      •  

        Thanks, updated.

      • +2 votes

        erm could you clarify how you can purchase 3 years worth of xbox live, how much it costs and how it converts to xbox game pass?

        • +1 vote

          Buy 3x 12 month prepaid Xbox Live cards. Redeem them to your account. Then upgrade your account to Ultimate for $1.

          You can buy Xbox Live cards for $50-$80, depending on whether they're on sale.

          •  

            @Timm: You can buy em from like Brazil for $40? 2s and I'll find the link from Flight Simulator…

              @TogTogTogTog: Does this Brazil still work if we already had Ultimate in the past? I tried those 3 months trial last year. Any other options, if not?

              •  

                @hanofee: Interested know about this question too if anyone have the answer.

                Tried Ultimate before and have now expired. Wondering if I can get the Brazil method (buying Live gold with vpn etc) to work despite having ultimate previously?

          •  

            @Timm: aren't Xbox live cards for Xbox live subscription? aren't they different to xbox game pass which is for Windows 10 PC?

      •  

        Interested to find out more about this link your suggesting.

      Yes it stacks, but must have gold first added and once satisfied with the length cap of 35 months, add ultimate $1.

      But this may change in the future if Microsofts satisfied with the outcome.

    •  

      I just did.
      Pre-requisite: account is clean. No on-going sub, never been n ultimate before

      1. Bought 3 x 12 months BRAZIL Xbox Live Gold here for $37 each: https://www.electronicfirst.com/12-month-xbox-live-gold-memb...
        EDITED: CD Keys are saling the XLG membership too
        https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/memberships/12-month-xbox-l...
      2. Use chrome free vpn extension to connect to brazil vpn:
        https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/free-vpn/jcbiifklm...
      3. Go to https://redeem.microsoft.com/ to redeem the code.
        (My first one was not working. Says redeemed already. Contacted the CS of EF and sorted it out in 10 mins)
      4. Go back to spend $1 to get ultimate pass + 36 months stack on top

      total cost: $112

        I did this tonight too, but got my keys for $34ea from G2A here: https://www.g2a.com/en-au/xbox-live-gold-subscription-card-1...

      •  

        Does this still work? I couldnt get the Brazil VPN connection to load pages, it was very slow and didnt seem to work :(

        •  

          It is seriously slow and quite glitchy but I got there in the end with it

    Nice OP, resubbed because of this. Cheers

  •  

    can i sub then cancel straight away?

    or is it like apple and if you cancel you wont have the sub anymore?

    •  

      Updated 'how to' in deal description.

    •  

      Yes you can, just stop recurring payments in your account settings

    Just in time for Microsoft Flight Simulator… nice.

    $4.95 a month thereafter sounds pretty good too!

    • +4 votes

      Updated for Ultimate monthly price. But yeah, $4.95pm for PC only is pretty good.

      •  

        Game pass for PC is great, for $4.95 after the promotion period during Beta is awesome.
        Playing Gear Tactics alone already worth it.

    • +2 votes

      It's only that price while it's in beta and it's been in beta for a year now.

  •  

    Ohh streets of rage 4 is included?

    Does this work if I was previously subscribed? (AMD promo)

    • +3 votes

      Worked for me, as a previous subscriber. And Streets of Rage 4 is heaps of fun, well worth $1 :-)

  •  

    You can cancel before the renew date and use it until expiry, then rebuy again with the $1 deal.

    •  

      Pretty sure it won't work and will ask for $15.96 when you try to renew like the comments below yours suggests

      •  

        Yeah I should've said on PC. Not sure what its like to be a console peasant. See comments above about resubscribing.

    •  

      Lol. There is no such thing.

      You can check Xbox Game Pass for PC (as opposed to ultimate) if you're just interested in the PC side not the Xbox side: https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/p/xbox-game-pass-for-pc-beta...

      For me that one is still $1 as well even though Ultimate is full price.

    •  

      Are you currently on Ultimate? or have you previously had it?
      Coz it says that for me (on ultimate) & i'm wondering if i can cancel my last month, buy 36 months Gold & upgrade for $1.
      or if it'll still say "extend" or something else… [nope, cant cancel, already paid]

    Sterling ?

      Sterling Archer.

  •  

    Can i buy it as gift for 1$?

    •  

      Yes

    •  

      Does not work for me. Says $1 but then when I press buy as gift it goes back to standard pricing.

      •  

        doesnt work for me too

    Any deals on xbox live gold for 12 months?

    •  

      CD keys Brazil would be the cheapest

      •  

        Can you buy brazil gold live key for a total of 35 months, then switch to ultimate for $1?

        •  

          Yes. I have done it for several people

          •  

            @4agte: Are there any catches when buying Brazil Gold Live keys and adding them to your account? Nervous to be left with a Brazil key bought from CDKeys that I cannot use :) Cheers

            •  

              @Homith: Would like to know the answer to this as well. Cant afford to buy 35 months worth for it to then not work :/

            •  

              @Homith: No catches. My xbox accounts and others I have setup are Australian. They remain Australian. I can buy things from from the AU store. Friends from different regions can gift me games.

          •  

            @4agte: Will it work if we already had ultimate trial in the past (already expired)?

            •  

              @hanofee: Only if it is expired. If you try beforehand it won't allow you to add to a subscription from other region. In that instance you just wait

            @4agte: Do you need VPN to activate?

          •  

            @4agte: So best to make a 2nd account I assume if you already had a current subscription and have used one if the past $1 offer?

            I almost never have time to play online anyway so I don't really care to much about switching accounts.

            •  

              @Duff5000: You don't need to make a new account as long as your old subscription is expired.

    The link is wrong :)) That links show $15 for me.
    This link works instead: https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/p/xbox-game-pass-for-pc-beta...

    • +1 vote

      The deal link is for the Ultimate, which may not be $1 for you if it's not your "first" month. Your link is for the PC pass only, which seems to be $1 even if it isn't your first month, but is also good if you don't need the ultimate extras.

      •  

        Is it still $1 per month even after first month?

        • +1 vote

          For the PC pass yes, you just need to make sure to let it expire/cancel and not auto-renew. It will then appear as $1 after your current subscription expires. I've done this a few times already.

    First time I'm playing Halo.
    Not bad.
    With my PS4 controller as well lol.

    •  

      Have you got the PS4 controller to work natively with the xbox beta app? Having trouble with mine (won't recognise the controller)

  • +1 vote

    I've used this method twice now. I had to wait for my Xbox Live Gold subscription to end before I could sign up a second time. But went and bought a 12 month Xbox Live Gold card from Coles and then signed up. It gave me an extra month to set up recurring billing (which I then cancelled anyways) and then another month when I spent the $1 on upgrading to Ultimate Game Pass. So all up, $81 for 14 months access to Ultimate Game Pass.

  •  

    So I went ahead and bought 3x Xbox Live Gold passes from the Brazil site but forgot that I had already 10 months left on my account.
    I wasn't able to apply the 3rd pass so I have one left if someone wants it?

    •  

      I will. PM me!

      •  

        Done

  • +1 vote

    I did this about a year ago when I was last aware of it and am good to June 2022 at this point :D I'm guessing I can't add another year of Gold then this to extend that even further.

    •  

      No, the deal is a one-off.
      If you add more Gold, it will be subjected to conversation ratios instead:

      • 1 month of Gold = 20 days of Ultimate
      • 3 months of Gold = 50 days of Ultimate
      • 6 months of Gold = 79 days of Ultimate
      • 12 months of Gold = 4 months of Ultimate
      • 24 months of Gold = 8 months of Ultimate

      @Benny
      Hit me up as I may take this if it’s not to hard to activate

  •  

    But a month of PC Game Pass FIRST for $1, then upgrade for $1 for $2-2mth

    Wrong order of Ultimate first won't work

  •  

    I had the Gamepass ultimate conversion previously which has now expired. So I purchased 2 years of gold but when trying to go into the $1 deal for ultimate it immediately changes to $15 once i sign in. Now $15 would be fine if it converts my 2 years of gold but if I dont get 2 years of ultimate out of it will be miffed, anyone know if I can join for the $15 and it will convert the full gold?

    • +1 vote

      it won't restack as mentioned aboe - one time deal only so i you did it before you can't do it again

    • +1 vote

      For me, it wasn't once off. I had 2 conversions so far, and both time with $1 Ultimate deal. On both occasions, I had Gamepass for console and Gamepass for PC converted (with the first conversion had 2 Game with Gold months as well). I did need to have the first one completely run out.

      If you are unsure, ask Microsoft XBox Support to confirm before you buy (I would also ask why $1 deal isn't available - seems strange). XBox support team are quite helpful and friendly. You could even ask support to buy for you.

      Personally, I don't see real saving for getting long term GamePass Ultimate deal. Microsoft so far have had $1-$2 special deals every time a new first party exclusive is out. I haven't purchased any Gold 12 months subscription so far and I get to play every first party exclusives at launch ever since GamePass adds every first party exclusive to it by paying $1 each time. Microsoft also have done Xmas $1 deals for the past 3 years. There is also Microsoft awards.

      It will play a key role in next gen console. Being able to play Halo 5 at launch for free (pretty sure Microsoft will throw in 30 days free trial voucher for every next gen console) is something only Microsoft can do.

      •  

        So, we could do that $1 trial offer multiple times (whenever it’s available & we don’t have active subs)?

  •  

    I bought 3x Xbox Live Gold passes from the Brazil site but accidentally applied the 2 months free Xbox live if I set up recurring which means I can’t apply the third Xbox live gold code.

    Anyone interested in buying the code from me ?

    •  

      I wouldn’t mind buying the code - but First can anyone explain the rationale for buying three years of codes? Is that required to get the $1 upgrade?

      How come you can’t apply the third code once you’ve got the 2 free months?

      • +1 vote

        You can convert any amount of gold months to ultimate. 3 years is the maximum years of gold you can convert to ultimate. BZL gold keys can be picked up around $45/year. At this price you can get 3 years of ultimate for $136. Even on AU gold prices you save stacking longer gold periods

  •  

    My ultimate pass expired yesterday and I never done a conversion before.

    I bought 3 Xbox Live Gold passes from the Brazil site and applied to my account successfully. My gold now expires on 8/8/2023. When I tried to upgrade it for $1 to ultimate, it says it will cost me $15.95 a month. Chatting to Microsoft support they said it only applies to new accounts the $1. However I can wait for next month and I can buy one month of ultimate, then I should be upgrade my gold for the remainder of the 35 months for free. So it will cost me another $15.95 instead of $1.

    Sound a bit funny to me. Does this go in line with what others been doing with existing account instead of new accounts?

    •  

      I’ve found that there’s usually a fair time lapse between When I can get the $1 bonus deal on Xbox subscriptions after I’ve previously been a member.

      •  

        How long? Not desperately needing it but it would be nice to get it. Don't mind paying $16 if its once off to activate it

        • +1 vote

          If I look through my old emails and subscriptions (I've only ever done $1 ones) they're all around 3 months apart
