I think you must use a VPN to activate the brazil code

Sorry just to confirm,

Buy the 3 Month + 3 Month bonus pass from costco for $25.49 (Is it online only?/cheaper in store? Do the $20 and $50 coupons work online?), activate one code, activate rebilling, cancel rebilling repeat. This gives 7 months per code.

Since the max is 36 months, I would want either 4 codes for 28 months, then buy/add PC for $1, then upgrade to ultimate for $1, for a total of 32 months for ~$104? If this is correct I'm feeling really bad about buying MCC and Age of empires 2 HD this month on steam.

Edit: One other stupid question,

My cousins have an xbox, can I buy this on their account so they have xbox and I can use the PC version without issue?

I used Brazil’s VPN. I’m sure code was added but some how didn’t completely go thru

My first order of 3 codes was cancelled, no explanation. Next order was fine (rec'd 3 codes + 3 bonus codes). And I placed another order for 3 and it was fulfilled. (rec'd another 3 codes + another 3 bonus codes)

I did the following from PC:
* Deactivate rebilling
* Redeem "regular" code 1, accept offer to activate rebilling for a 4th month.
* Deactivate rebilling
* Redeem "regular" code 2, accept offer to activate rebilling for a 4th month.
* Deactivate rebilling
* Redeem "regular" code 3, accept offer to activate rebilling for a 4th month.
* Deactivate rebilling
* Redeem "bonus" code 1 (no offer to activate/extra month)
* Redeem "bonus" code 2 (no offer to activate/extra month)
* Redeem "bonus" code 3 (no offer to activate/extra month)

Did a second round as above, but didn't get through all of the codes when it told me I'd reached the max. Expiry Oct 2022 (sorry, didn't note the exact date in October).

Logged into the XBox and accepted the $1 upgrade for 3 months, and agreed to recurring $16.99. There was a screen there that said it would convert ALL months - maximum 36 months, and refers to the website for details.

It rejected me adding a bonus 3-month "bonus" code from Oct 20-something, 2022, but it did let me upgrade and it set my expiry to Jan 25 2023... seems like you could plan carefully to push it beyond 36 months? Not sure!

Happy with the outcome, thanks OP!

PS: Final step was to deactivate rebilling from PC :)

Any PC gamers here? Does "Xbox Game Pass Ultimate" include the "Xbox Game Pass for PC"? I do see the "Xbox Game Pass for PC" is also listed at $1.00 so perhaps that is what a PC gamer would want instead of this Ultimate pass?

Also, does this "Xbox Game Pass for PC" download actual games to run on the computer's hardware? Or does it work like Stadia where it streams the game on lower-end hardware?

The Microsoft/Xbox website couldn't make answering these questions any more confusing/difficult!

Ultimate includes Xbox Game Pass for PC.

XGP for PC downloads the game. It does not stream the game.

They have also announced that xCloud, Microsoft's streaming service, will come to XGP in the future though.

I'm late on this deal. From what I've read, since the 3 months + 3 months bonus no longer exists, my best option now is to buy game pass gold for 12 months, redeem, and I will get the option to add gpu for 1 month for $1. After doing so, I will have 12 months of gpu, is this correct?

Th GPU offer is 3 months for $1. But you're essentially correct. Last step must be to convert everything to GPU.

@ScatterStash Also, when you buy Game Pass Ultimate, in addition to the conversion, you still get the Ultimate month(s) that you paid for.

12-month XBL Gold code +
1 month bonus to enable auto-renew +
3 months of Ultimate for $1
= 16 months of Ultimate

Before any of that, you could also add 1 month for $1 of XBL Gold and/or Game Pass PC, if you like.
