I have 11 months of Game pass left. Would I be able to top up 2 x 12mo Live Gold and get 3y of GPU?

Game Pass is going to be sick with all the new releases.

Guys, so I ended up upgrading for $1 since i have my gamepass till oct 2020, Can i now purchase xbox gold from costco and add more time to my membership or it has to be done before activating this offer?

Did you use Masterpass?

We don't get the $1 promo in QC, but we get the same result by subscribing to 1 month of GPU ($16.99 + tax).

Bought 1 year of Live at Costco (+1 month with Auto-Renewal) and a 25$ GC to pay for the month of GPU. Added them to my account prior to the 1 month GPU sub and I now have GPU until February 2022 (Prior to that, I had Gold until December 2020).

So yeah, not as good as paying $1 for converting all your existing XBL Gold subscription, but ~$19.50 after tax is still an unbelievable deal.

That scenario hasn't been tested and is not guaranteed to work. They will probably apply it at a custom ratio where it won't be 1:1, more like 1:2 probably. YMMV, let us know. Also max is 3 years, so I think you can extend it up to Feb 2022.

$19.50 isn't so bad, vive la belle province, while the rest of the world gets it for a dollar. Confused Face

Same, thinking of calling microsoft and see if they can help? Looks like if you redeem gold after conversion, you only get 4months instead of 12.
