[PC, XBOX] Xbox Game Pass Ultimate - up to 36 Months for ~A$102.50 (A$2.85/Month) - Brazilian VPN Required

3340

Sorry if this is a repost but with the release of the new Flight Simulator I thought I'd post it for those that don't know.
Note: This only works if you don’t currently have any active subscriptions and haven’t already used the $1 upgrade/trial on your account yet.
Edit: Thanks to ShortyX, It seems like you may be able to do the $1 conversion more than once provided that it has already expired.
Edit 2: It seems like if you've already done the $1 conversion/trial, it will cost you $15.95 to do the conversion the second time.

Steps are as follows:

  1. Create Xbox AU account here: https://www.xbox.com/en-AU (or use existing).
  2. Get 12 month Xbox Live subscriptions here for $34: https://www.g2a.com/en-au/xbox-live-gold-subscription-card-1...
    I purchased from the "Floatingclouds" seller. BACK IN STOCK
  3. Get a Brazillian VPN. If the one you have doesn't work in Step 5 (my paid SurfShark one gave me errors when redeeming), try this free Chrome Extension (G2A seller recommended this one and it worked): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/free-vpn/jcbiifklm...
  4. Connect to Brazil VPN and go to https://redeem.microsoft.com/. Login to your Microsoft/Xbox account if not already. (I opted to login to my Microsoft account with a one-time code sent to my email rather than using my password as a precaution while using a sketchy VPN/extension.)
  5. Repeat redemption for all of the codes. I had to try a couple times for each one as the VPN is free and slow, I think it times out. Note: Make sure you don’t opt-in to automatic renewal for the 1 bonus month. This will prevent you from redeeming the 3rd 12 month pass.
  6. Once you have redeemed as many as you want (max of 3 for 36 months), you can then opt to “upgrade” to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $1. I did this in the Microsoft account/subscriptions page, but I think you can also do it here: https://www.xbox.com/en-AU/live/gold/upgrade. Note: Don't use the VPN for this part.

Hopefully that's clear enough. Not sure how much longer this offer is going to be around for so I'd probably jump on it if interested. If I've missed any steps or there are better VPN's/key prices let me know and I'll update the post. Cheers!

If the keys are out of stock, here's a list of some other sites I was considering before I purchased (not quite as cheap):
https://www.electronicfirst.com/12-month-xbox-live-gold-memb... (Warning: some users reporting ID verification required)
https://www.gamivo.com/product/xbox-live-gold-12-month-brazi... (Warning: some users reporting ID verification required)
https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/memberships/12-month-xbox-l...
Note: Buy at your own risk, I cannot speak for the legitimacy of these sellers

Edit: Floatingclouds on G2A is back in stock here (scroll down, top of the list): https://www.g2a.com/xbox-live-gold-subscription-card-12-mont...

Note/Comparison: Australian Xbox Game Pass Ultimate has RRP of $574.20 for 36 months ($15.95/Month)

      I've bought from them twice and both times had to go through the chat to get the code applied :/ But I've found old subscriptions hang around on you account for a while and can cause issues.

  •  

    the cheapies all sold out again? i can only find $43.99 for 12 months

    •  

      that was what I paid last night. thats what I get for coming late to the party

      •  

        Lol. I didn’t realise this was from 22/8

  •  

    Tried to purchase 3 x 12 month xbox live codes through cdkeys twice. 1st time 'worked' received a receipt from cdkeys saying order is complete. Go to collect keys and it tells me that the order is under review. I wait a couple of hours and i decide to contact support. While i'm waiting i receive an email that my purchase has gotten refunded. Finally chat with support and they tell me it was a transaction error.

    So i decide to wait for the refund and try again. A couple of days later i do and same thing happens again… This time support tells me that the 'review team' has decided that since i don't live in Brazil i can't have the keys and get refunded again. pretty annoying tbh. Probably will never use cdkeys again.

    As for the other options g2a seems to be getting more expensive day by day and i cant be bothered going through the possible "ID Verification" of electronic first and gamivo.

    So i guess i'll wait until g2a prices drop again.

    •  

      I used Gamivo yesterday to get 3x 12 month cards and it worked without verification for me. Last weekend my account got blocked on g2a trying to buy them, so I missed out on $30 of savings or something. I paid $112 after paypal fees

    Hi all,

    So I've done all the steps. Got 3 years of Xbox Live after expiry of my Game pass Ultimate. Then with the VPN turned off I went to https://www.xbox.com/en-AU/live/gold/upgrade

    Click on join and all that jazz and click submit and then.

    Change your Microsoft Store region You currently have a subscription from a different region. If it still doesn't work, please contact customer support.

    Tried it a few times both incognito mode and normally, and each time its the same. Any advice??

      Nevermind. I'm a dumbass and didn't read the rest of the comments. I finally got around it by doing the CD keys 1 month of Gamepass ultimate and redeeming that code. Now got 3 years of Ultimate.

      41.55 x 3 + 16.99.

      What…a…deal

      •  

        Hey mate just checking but the one month ultimate you bought, is that an aussie gift card or brazilian? I activated the 3 years of gold via brazilianVPN but couldnt do the upgrade on the aussie store and tried using a gamepass ultimate gift card to upgrade and didnt work either!

        • +1 vote

          So i put it in on my xbox app on my phone and it accepted it. It wasn't working on my xbox and from memory wasn't working on the computer either but through the xbox app it worked and accepted it immediately.

          •  

            @nkuruvilshopping: which ultimate pass did you buy?? AU or brazil having same issue as Qmar

            •  

              @ChurBoi: aah crap cd keys put my gamepass 1mnth order on HOLD - they are useless

  • +1 vote

    Popping in to say this still works, even though prices for the keys have gone up a little but it's still a damn good deal.

    Bought from G2A, no ID requested but they did call me from Poland to confirm my email address and then it went through fine. Used the Chrome Extension VPN linked by OP and while it was slow and required reloading and trying the redemptions several times, it worked (don't be afraid of various "unreachable" or "aborted" errors when trying to redeem the codes).

    Now set until 2023 for 133.20 + 15.95, incredible. THANKYOU OP

    Got 3 x code has already been redeemed from seller Playdistribution

    Messaged them about it, will wait to hear back.

    •  

      Yeah I had the same problem, no idea what to do about it

      • +2 votes

        Register for a G2A account and then on the page where they give you your key there's an option to send the seller a message and note the key is invalid. They have 7 days to respond and if they don't sort it out for you you can request a refund through the site. Hopefully the seller comes good and sends updated keys in next 24 hrs.

  •  

    I've bought the codes from G2A but it says all 3 were already redeemed??? Did anyone else have this problem?

  • +2 votes

    Just purchased two keys and one was invalid - "had already been claimed". Messaged the seller (playdistribution) and waiting to hear back. Will update if they send another key or refund me. Also purchased one from Rpsgames and that worked fine.

  •  

    just ordered 3 codes from https://www.gamivo.com/ but when I entered them, 2 of the codes have already been redeemed
    :(

  •  

    looks like 12 month price on G2A is $45.77 AUD now.

    •  

      Don’t buy them yet, so far they’re all already redeemed

    •  

      Cdkeys has them for about that price atm.

      Have had no issues with them yesterday and also a few times in the past

  •  

    This was the best deal on OzBargain! :D

    •  

      Still fewer votes than for an eBay non-deal.

      •  

        Not everyone has an xbox though. ebay is a generalist time of deal. xbox is niche.

    •  

      haha thanks mate

  •  

    Okay my $1 game pass for pc runs out in a few days time.So can i buy xbox gold then connvert it to game pass for pc?

    •  

      Following. Mine expires on the 27th and i don't know if I should wait it out or cancel the current subscription.

  •  

    If you did something similar to this back with the conversion with gold will this still work? Got my membership until November 2021 but if this works that would be amazing with new gen coming

      Yes. Got mine till 2023.

      •  

        Thanks bro. Did u do the full 3 years or 2? I still have until 2021 Nov

        So should I buy 3 years or 2 if there's a max ?

        •  

          3 years max - 36 months

          I would invest that, you get like 10k worth of games for 3 years for just $102.50, bloody bargain.

          •  

            @jeffrufino: Def's getting 3 years but not sure if I already have a year's worth on mine. Does it allow 3 more years? Sorry I should have explained better 😅

            •  

              @agalea101: No it doesn't allow more than 3 years.

              If you read the thread, it would have told you that.

  •  

    Just a heads up I have also been having trouble trying to purchase a key from cdkeys.com. They keep reviewing my purchase and rejecting it after I buy. Just a heads up that the process of buying one of these cd keys is tenuous. I have managed to secure 2, however three other attempts are in limbo across a couple of the sites listed. Hoping I get refunded for them but who can say for sure - it's also a massive hassle dealing with the follow up when they don't work. I know some people in here have gotten lucky buying the keys but others have not - be warned.

    •  

      yes! - my account was blocked and now im waiting for a refund - said it will take up to 28 days! ha ill call amex to get it canx but still jeez

      might bite the bullet and get some off ebay… idk - dont want to miss out

    The prices on these 12 month codes are more volatile than crypto…

    Bought my key at https://www.mtcgame.com/ and worked out to be $118.22 for 36 months, plus $1 upgrade.

        Ugh, comment got deleted as I used a price tracker page to find it. MTC look dodgy AF. Claim to offer Paypal but when you get to checkout it's gone. I went through CDKeys which is the cheapest of the (slightly more) reputable CD key sellers

        I got it from fidelio link above, MTC game direct from their website. After successful payment via credit card, took me like 30 mins before they send me the codes. Paid $131.69 total for 3 years.

  •  

    Man these guys are taking ages to confirm id. Anyone else having issues? Can anyone help a ozbro out?

    •  

      Which guys?

    •  

      Did you buy from MTC? They seem to come online on their livechat support around 4pm.

      Try chatting them directly, and ask what's up. They seem to be pretty keen to help.

      •  

        Thanks bro will try that. I just sent a email yesterday. Selfie with drivers licence etc … No reply

  •  

    The prices are a bit higher now, possibly due to higher demand due to this news, but I was able to get it going, thanks so much OP!

    G2A have suspended my account now too due to "suspicious activity", maybe because the VPN turning on and off, but at least I got the codes before that happened!

  •  

    I still have 6 months left, is it worth me just making a new account and giving it it home status on my Xbox or is it possible override my current account with.another 2.5 years?

    •  

      Yep it’s worth it. I did it with 7 months to run on mine. I got 3 years for $110. Bit more now but still. I basically paid $110 for an extra 29 months as I’m effectively forfeiting 7 months on my old account. Given the only other cheap way to get ultimate is jb hifi half price sales when they’re on which equals about $100 for 12 months. So I’ve still come out way in front.

      •  

        What option did you do though? New account or add to old account?

        •  

          New account. No way to add to an old account unfortunately. The deal only works on an account that doesn’t have an active ultimate subscription.

  •  

    I know that other people got a better deal, though I am happy enough with the below.

    Purchased 2 codes from here ($100.38):
    https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/memberships/12-month-xbox-l...

    Used TunnelBear as the VPN, Free VPN was way too slow.

    Turned on recurring billing for 1 extra month, turned it off and back on for another extra month.

    "Your subscription will end on 11/12/2022"

    Then only had to pay $1 for Gamepass Ultimate conversion, very happy with 27 months at $3.75ish per month!

      Ooo PayPal I like it

    Confirmed 3 years still works today with the additional $16.99 one month game pass ultimate from CDKeys.

    Strongly suggest to do this before prices go up on the 17th Sept.

  •  

    Bit the bullet, followed OP's instructions but bought 36months from https://mtcgame.com/en-AU/microsoft-points/xbox-live-gift-ca...

    36months - $140 all up

    Hi all. Need some help here. Followed OPs instructions to a T but cant activate the upgrade to ultimate. Got the 3 years gold via VPN brazil and activated. Switched off VPN and tried to upgrade to Ultimate but it says

      Prior to redeeming the Brazillian codes, has your account have an active subscription? Also have you claimed $1 ultimate game pass promo before? If not, then probably Microsoft may have fixed this ?

        No. My first ever gold sub even

          Have you tried re-activating the VPN to upgrade to Ultimate (if it's available)?

          Did you make the account in Australia before activating the VPN?

    •  

      Possible that your sacrifice has confirmed that they have fixed this hack??? Has anyone else had issues???

      •  

        I chatted with support and they said the gold was for brazil and im in aus so it wont work but luckily chat guy was nice. He said he will try and transfer to oz but might take 24 hrs to reflect. Will report back tomorrow

          I and few others on previous pages had the same issue. Easy fix though.

          Buying the one-month Gamepass Ultimate ($16.99) and activating that on top of the 3x12 month codes worked a treat. Literally did it last night and been working great today with confirmed expiry Sept 2023.

          UK account.
          Brazil codes.
          Converted to AU Gamepass account.

          •  

            @Hybroid: I did try that when I couldnt do the upgrade for $1 but disnt work for me. I might just be an odd one out. Hopefully it continues to work for everyone else.

            •  

              @Qmar: You might just have to wait next day as might be on the 3 year max limit. Try again in 24 hours.

    I bought 2 keys from g2a, seller topkeybrass10.
    Both keys didn't work ('key cannot be redeemed, contact seller')
    Seller refunded full amount when contacted.

  •  

    I bought from mtcgames (2 x 12 month Brazil)… in two separate transactions as didn't want to go "all in" in case it didn't work.

    mtcgames did feel a little dodgy, esp in the checkout process… but both separate transactions ended up working. Takes 15 mins or so for the code to be sent through on purchase.
    Keys didn't have any issues activating.

    One con with mtcgames was that I didn't like having to provide my mobile number but alas.
    Was curious that I got a group facetime call few hours later from 3 x unrecognisable phone numbers, since blocked all the numbers…. but can't say for certain related. Could have been a coincidence perhaps. Nothing else odd since then. Anyone else have this occur?

    I had to then buy a month of games pass ($15) as wasn't eligible for the $1 conversion.

    Ouch. Bought 3 years but MS will only allow me to redeem two. Gives me an error saying I can't extend beyond the 2 year limit. WARNING only buy 2 years.

    • +1 vote

      You had no existing/active subscription?

    •  

      Did you forget to uncheck the "auto renew" feature, and therefore it added an additional month, which prevents you from adding the third because you can only have a maximum of 36 months?

      Saw you fixed your own issue below. Onya mate.

    •  

      You could wait a month

      •  

        Will it still be there? I actually think I got 2 free months as I had it selected twice….

        • +1 vote

          Unfortunately, as with many of these money saving techniques we use, it's the risk each of us must individually evaluate. The $1 Upgrade could be around for a day or a year. I assume MS is trying to streamline their service into 1 universal pass to become competition to services like Stadia, Geforce Now, or even Steam.

          Optionally, if selling the code isn't appealing, you could upgrade your account to Ultimate now and then use the 12 month Live code to get another 4 months Ultimate. Once Ultimate is active any Live codes attached to the account afterwards are converted based on their value, MS has a list detailing these.

  •  

    For those that stuffed up and added the “free” months for subscribing meaning you couldn’t add the 3rd year.

    You can convert it to Game Pass at a ratio of 4 months for 12 once you’ve completed the above. I had two extra free months so ended up with a total of 2.5 years.

    Better not to stuff it up!

    •  

      Good tip

    •  

      Why not just wait for those free months to be used up, other than the risk that MS could withdraw the offer before then.

  • +2 votes

    still working, bought codes from MTC, used the VPN as per OP's instructions and $1 offer for Ultimate Game Pass.

    •  

      Did you buy 3 years or 2? I get errors trying to ultimate after activating 3 years worth of gold.

      •  

        Bought 3 years on MTC, took about 5 hours to receive the codes but all 3 worked. What error are you getting? If the $1 upgrade doesn’t work, you will have to pay the $15 bucks to upgrade instead.

        •  

          When I activate the $15 month subscription, it shows the below.

          So it takes about 5 hours after you get the payment receipt email? I'm guessing you get another email with the code on it?

    Used MTC and followed instructions. Worked fine

    No problems previously, now getting "Contact whomever you got this code from. It can't be redeemed." when attempting to redeem a spare Brazil code on another account while using a Brazil VPN.
