Anywhere from 15 minutes to a couple days. Make sure to check your spam folder though, codes often end up there (codes are fulfilled by "Codes2Go", not Costco)

I am uneasy using free VPNs as nothing is truly free (data mining etc) so Costco seems best bet.

Wouldn't it still be cheaper to subscribe to some VPS temporarily?

Of course I understand going the Brazil way is still a bit of hassle and buying Canadian codes is the "guaranteed OK" method.

Oh I agree I was just trying to say I can understand some might prefer to get it the Canadian way.

I do have one small story though, on my own account I never had any problems but when I did it again earlier this year to setup an account for a friend I did have some problems. I forget exactly what happened but I could not purchase the Game Pass Ultimate upgrade, so I contacted the live chat and they resolved it the same way I have seen others mention, the rep kinda does the purchase for you and it's done.

The 3 months for $1 was the original deal, but then folks discovered that upgrading to Ultimate converts all of your Live balance to Ultimate at 1:1, and that became the bigger deal (and then the 3 months for $1 expired, now the promo is only 1 month for $1).

Basically - you stock up the maximum of Live + PC Game Pass + Xbox game pass (36 months combined) and then pay for one month of Ultimate, and it all gets combined and converted to Ultimate.

Thank you. Does it still work as of now? I thought i read something about live being converted at a rate of 4:1 or something? Instead of 1:1
