This puts me in a tough spot, because I'm philosophically pro-Xbox as it's the All-American choice (Bravado Action, Football, Baseball, Apple Pie, etc.).

That said, unless you're heavily bought into Xbox Live Gold to the tune of 3-years, this is a tougher sell.

This isn't for the casual player, but for the committed Xbox player, this is an irresistible rabbit hole.

God bless and Enjoy.

The title needs more details. Like remaining Live subscription will be upgraded to Ultimate.

This deal is even sweeter if you took advantage of the Costco buy 3 months get extra 3 months (plus auto renewal trick) deal.

This should clear up any confusion.

The steps are:
1) buy as many months of Live as you want (max 36 months)
2) go to your account and under subscriptions it will prompt you for an offer to upgrade to game pass for $1
3) voila!

Once you have upgraded your membership, is it possible to extend the Xbox Game Pass membership by redeeming Xbox Gold 12 month code?

Thank you @baconcow for selling me 2 x 3-month Xbox codes. Turning off the recurring payment option also worked effectively giving me 4 months each. Too bad I reached the max 3-year period and unable to redeem the second code, but I guess I will do it in 3-4 months. Thanks again.

Bought for $1 and Microsoft subscription page now shows Xbox Game Pass Ultimate expires in Jun 2022. Thanks OP for a great deal! Time to download all the "free" games now...

I bought a 12mth and 6mth from Costco this morning. Received codes within minutes. I did the recurring billing trick for 2 extra months to extend my existing Gold subscription out to the full 36mths.
Upgraded to GPU for $1 and it now shows that its good until 6/8/2022.

Awesome deal OP!!

I did that with EB Games but the buy 3 months get 3 months free codes now say expired for the extra 3 months. I never used them because I had intended to give them to a friend. Not like getting physical cards which never expire...

Just FYI, if you had any sort of Xbox Live Gold Subscription, Game Pass and/or Game Pass for PC, all of them are now converted into a single Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

Just edited the post. Confirmed that it will be more than just a month like some are saying.

**Offers are for a limited time and may not be valid for all members. After promotional period, subscription continues to be charged at the then-current regular price (subject to change), unless cancelled. Plus applicable taxes. Game Pass Ultimate will upgrade your remaining Live Gold or Game Pass membership(s) into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for the same amount of time, up to 36 months total.

Thanks OP! +1 Picked up 2 years from Costco and got the codes about 6 minutes later. Maybe it helped that I used Masterpass? Either way, I'm all set up till Nov 2021. Now to actually find the time to play something..... FML! :)
