I had 6 months left of Gold, and 12 months left of Game Pass, just added another 12 months of Gold from Costco.ca for $60, then turned on recurring for the free month.

$1.05 charged to my Paypal and now have GPU until the end of February 2022. Pretty awesome deal!

Thanks OP!

How fast does costco send out the codes? Want to take advantage but don't want to risk this getting changed while waiting for the codes to arrive.

So question ... for the remaining time I have into July for Xbox Live does it turn into this Xbox Game Pass Ultimate cuz I know my Game Pass runs out before the Xbox Live does.
Yes, it combines whatever remaining subscription you have left for Gold and Game Pass into the Game Pass Ultimate.

For example:

Both your Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass expires in 6 months. Do this deal and convert it for $1. Your new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription is 12 months long.

Pretty fast, close to instant. Check your spam/junk mail folder.

Looks like it worked for me too - upgraded the remainder of my existing Live subscription (plus one month) for $1.

whoa, so when you upgraded to GCU, it combined your gold sub (6 months remaining + 12 months) and gamepass (12 months) to become 24 months + 6 months of GCU?

i'm in a similar situation as you and was thinking of adding that extra year of gold before upgrading

edit: read the thread, yes it seems to be the case, just combines your existing gold months + gamepass months

Thanks OP.

FYI, from reddit: "Make sure to top off gold and or game pass before you convert. The conversion for adding codes after you sub is bad 3 months gold for 1 month ultimate or 1 month game pass for 20 days ultimate."

Dang. Maybe supply ran out at costco. I guess their disclaimer that it can take a couple of days is to cover them from situations like this.

Ordered codes from Costco about an hour or so ago, still nothing. Hope the deal doesn’t go away before I get the codes.

Ordered from Costco Friday still waiting. I checked my history and it used to be instant delivery for me, over the last 2 years it's been average 2 day since then.

Yeah same for me. I was going to order from Costco but terrified I'll miss the deal as a result. 2 days to get codes nowadays. Used to be instant.
