Just note that if you want to extend to the maximum available, you should do it before upgrading.

Sorry for the spam guys - but I am confused by this offer.. I am already subscribed to GPU via the $1 promo.. Am I still able to this or will it not work? Or should I wait until my 3 months are up? Or.... am I screwed and is https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/xb ... 65&irgwc=1 the best deal I can get now..

Thanks, guys

You got to wait till it expires in order to try and take advantage of this.

Why do you need to wait for the current subscription to expire? I also bought the 3-month ultimate for $24.99. I already subscribed to the ultimate promo $1, and mine will expire on July 2,2020. Wouldn't be it will just add 3 months from July 2nd if I redeem it now and expires on Oct 2nd?

Thanks

Sort of unrelated to GPU deal specifically, but Rockstar Games just surprise released GTA V for the subscription service. Great treat for anyone who has never played, especially this game that took years to drop in price.

Yes, since you bought 3-month ultimate, your membership will extend to Oct 2nd. They were talking about after their current ultimate expires, they can buy live gold member again and transfer to ultimate which will cost less. But the question is no one know whether the 1:1 transfer will be still hold in the future.

Did anyone buy from costco a 3 month Xbox live Ultimate code and get a bonus one for free? My bonus code isnt working at all and gives me an error.
" Check the instructions that came with your code. You might need to redeem it on a different web page."

Does not work on the console, desktop or phone.

Alright so rookie mistake here. I had just bought a Xbox this Christmas, I was in such a rush to play forza that I just clicked yes as fast as possible, hence upgrading 1 month of free gold to ultimate game pass.

I assume I can't take advantage of the 1:1 upgrade ratio anymore can I ?

Not until you let it expire first.

Redeeming your Prepaid Xbox Live Gold 12-Month code will automatically convert to 4 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

For clarity, are there two scenarios?
1. Active Gold account, add game pass ultimate for $1 and your remaining subscription to Gold will convert to ultimate 1:1.
2. You have game pass ultimate active already: Every subsequent addition of xbox live Gold to the account will convert 3 months of Gold:1 month of ultimate.

I'm new to the whole eco system and contemplate game pass ultimate. My only hesitation is the crazy backlog of games on other platforms.

I've never used Game Pass ultimate before. For the games you download, can you still play them after it expires?
