Per the thread summary: you should be able to order up to 2 codes in a single order. But WAIT FOR THE CODES TO ARRIVE before doing another order. Trying to split into multiple orders but not waiting for the codes to arrive defeats the purpose, as you'll still be violating the max quantity.

Turns out my issue with the coded may been something else entirely. Apparently I still had a non-delivery claim on my account which was blocking purchases. And now, naturally I've maxed out my limit for 30 days >.<
Gonna try making a Costco.ca account with my wives membership number and see if that works.

Any ideas when the 1:1 conversion ratio will change? If I'm not an XBox Live member yet, is there somewhere I can go to confirm the conversion ratio before I buy the Costco cards?

It's unlikely that it will ever change unless they get rid of Live Gold entirely. Which I can't see happening any time soon. But, from the faq in the thread summary on page one of this thread:
Q: Related to the previous question: HAS this expired? Does it still work?
A: If it's no longer working, this thread summary will absolutely be updated, and the thread will be moved to expired deals. But if you're really concerned because somebody hasn't posted in the last 15 minutes that it's still working, or whatever, you can feel free to read Microsoft's Game Pass Ultimate Faq. The question "What happens to my prepaid months of Xbox Live Gold and/or Xbox Game Pass when I sign up for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate?" should answer your question.

Thanks, but the FAQ currently only says "at the current conversion ratio" with no reference to what the ratio is or where to check it, and a statement that "ratios are subject to change.".

The "current conversion ratio" is 1:1. If it changes, there will absolutely be an announcement and the thread summary will be updated.

In other news, I was able to get 2x 12 months from my wives new Costco.ca account. I was not able to order the 3rd 6 month though. So I had a buddy buy it for me.
Now I'm setup until 02/24/2024
Thanks all.

Got 2 x 12 months from Costco today but the third one 6 months got cancelled. Asked a friend to order and the order got cancelled three times.

Does the Codes2go have a limit each day ?

Thanks. May try again tomorrow.

My first order this morning was 2 x 12 months and got the codes in 15 mins. The second order in the afternoon was 1 x 6 months and got cancelled in 1/2 hour.

Do you only get the $1 game pass if you have not had a gamepass subscription previously?

My gamepass expired today and the link OP had provided shows $11.99 instead of $1 for me.

Yes, generally speaking the $1 first month promos are only for new subscribers (or people that haven't subscribed for a long time).

Today Costco cancelled my order of 6 months with "quantity limits on item exceeded" reasoning.

Besides Costco, where can I get a good deal on 6 months pass?

Edit: Nevermind about this question -- I figured all the instructions were still valid and that the conversion ratio would be 1-to-1. I subscribed and it did indeed convert at 1-to-1! Thanks for the awesomely helpful thread! Next I'm adding the 2 Pizza Pops codes I got earlier!

Hi Folks, Can I ask a clarifying question? After entering in 24 months of Xbox Live Gold, I receive this message when I click "Join Now" at this page.

"Joining Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will upgrade your remaining Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass or EA Play membership(s) into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at the current conversion ratio, up to 36 months (any time over 36 months will be lost). Note that all conversions are final, and the conversion ratio is subject to change."

I am wondering if the language of "current conversion ratio" tells me that I won't get the 1-to-1 ratio. Some background info: I have already done the Xbox Live to Game Pass Ultimate trick a couple of years ago, but my subscriptions have since lapsed.

Thanks for your help!

Costco is the only place that sells discounted codes. You could just buy one at regular price, it's only a $7 difference. That works out to a whopping 19 cents a month difference over the 3 years you're subscribing for.
