[Microsoft] Xbox Game Pass - 1 Month Membership (New or Existing) - $1

Just renewed Game Pass for $1 even though I was a previous subscriber. Immediately cancelled to avoid any unwanted renewals.

There's also the 50% off, 6-month offered from both Bestbuy and Walmart to be used after the month is over.

Enjoy!

Perhaps it's only for people without an active membership. That's unfortunate.

Any idea how long this deal will last. I want to get it closer to June 23 as that's when I'll be back from vacation. Thanks

EDIT: nevermind, it says 8 days remaining. I'll pick it up when there is only 1 day left

question about gamepass: I notice that a lot of games get added and then some of the older ones get removed. Do they remove the access to the older games once they get removed? I think the turn around for new games and older games is too fast for someone who doesn't play on Xbox every single day.

I got what I'm pretty sure was the previous $1 promo on either the last, or second-last day it was available, and that month's subscription expired June 7.

I think I remember checking this promo before my sub expired, and seeing regular price. Now that I'm not a subscriber, I see $1. I'm almost certain Xbox's $1 promos (Game Pass or Gold) are for new or previous subscribers, but not current ones.

I think you'll get an error message if you try to launch a game you installed while it was part of Game Pass, after it's been removed.

Edit: I was under the impression games were generally in the library longer-term. But it looks like NBA 2K17 and WWE 2K17 were only in there February-April this year.

(WWE 2K16 was the game I remembered being removed, and getting an error message. Now I'm seeing that its replacement is already gone.)

I bought a xbox one X back in February, and I think it came with a free 14 day trial of the game pass (I haven't activated it yet)

I am thinking of joining the service. What's the best way to do this to take advantage of the $1 promo?

Should i dive into this $1 promo now? (Since it ends in 7 days). After the month runs out, can I still use the 14 day trial with my account?

Thanks!

Does Microsoft send you a code? Or is it an immediate activation of Gamepass on your Xbox? I don't really want to start my Gamepass subscription until later in the year like when Forza Horizon 4 is out.

For what it's worth any first party games stay with Game Pass perpetually, it's only the 3rd party games that may phase out over time. So games like Halo, Gears and Forza will stay on Game Pass permanently. It's sort of like Netflix Originals that stay around always but the other content changes.

Immediate activation. I'd couple this with the 50% off offer from BestBuy that works out to be $6/m, and use that code only when the game you want comes out.
