24 months is not available on Costco Canada but Is available in US as far as I know. Can you check if you placed order on Costco.ca?

Also for me only MasterCard worked for online code purchase

For all those with the Costco issues, when I finally reached a CS rep they mentioned that there is a limit on these cards. So if it cancels right away, don't do like I first did and keep ordering.

Call customer service with your order number and they will straighten it out.

Good luck all and thanks again OP, dad of the year award according to my kids with 3 years if Ultimate!

I don’t know why I find this process so daunting. Every time I read this thread I get turned off by all the conflicting messages lol.

Can someone dumb it down for me pretty please?

I got no current live subscription it’s expired. With the quarantine now is the perfect time to get back online.

Do I need live first then get the $1 deal and get that which then somehow converts something ultimate!? Dunno I’m a newb here with this ultimate pass thing. Never used it before.

This is lovely, thank you. I bought an Xbox One S around January and rather enjoyed the free trials of Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Gold. When it expired, I didn't even turn on the unit for a month. I now have it until Mar 1, 2023..

One of the best deals I’ve ever secured on RFD. Thank you OP. Could not have been easier with the Thread Summary.

I was able to max our at 36 months (because I used my $1 free already) by foregoing the PC deal and adding 3 months @ 16.99 (offer on my dashboard) to trigger the LIVE to XBL Ultimate conversation as an amended last step.

Worked out to $4.83/month. So ready for Day 1 Halo Infinite!

Do you have to max our at the full 36 months? Or can you just do 12. With the new Xbox coming. We sure this is gonna migrate through?

So just to confirm, if one had taken advantage of the $1 Conversion to Ultimate before, all that's written in the summary will still work however the calculation will be slightly off cause then they will no longer get the $1 offer but the 3 months for 16,99$ or whatever it was, correct?

CONFIRMED STILL WORKING.

I followed instructions exactly as per first post, and it worked.
I SKIPPED the "PC PASS".
The Ultimate version includes PC within.

NOTE: to COSTCO MEMBERS

Trying to purchase 3 xbox live memberships did not work. I had to call in. It took me 30 minutes on the phone to resolve and they finally fixed it and I got all 3 emailed to me.... If you are going to the store, just buy them in store.

ALSO GREAT DEAL. THANK YOU OP!

You don't HAVE to max it out. But just because a new XBox is coming out doesn't mean they're going to immediately scrap everything to do with the Xbox One. It is still going to be a viable platform for many years to come.

I bought this a month or so ago thinking that everything will just migrate over to Series X games, as its the Xbox platform, and not tied to any one system. If they did another tier above this, it would only add to the confusion they are currently in. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate denotes its at the top, dont think there will be anything above it. Looking forward to next gen console games pushing everything forward. Early benchmarks are showing 3700X/2080 performance already, gonna need to upgrade my computer to keep up!
