I'm good through November 3, 2021. Not bad considering how little real money I've spent on this. Hopefully in the next two years I can build enough bing rewards to cover the next couple of years.

So, if you have gold and get this you get ultimate for a dollar and that lasts the length of your membership? You won't have to pay for ultimate until your gold/game pass runs out?

This isn't a glitch, from the FAQ:
"As an Insider benefit, when you join Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to give feedback, we will apply any prepaid time you have on Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass or both toward Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, up to a maximum of 36-months.

For example, if you have 3-months of Xbox Live Gold and 3-months of Xbox Game Pass already in your account and join Ultimate as an Insider, you will be charged $1 for your first month. For subsequent months, we will apply 6 months toward your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate(up to a maximum of 36-months).

You can cancel your Ultimate membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to your Ultimate benefits until your prepaid time ends, at which point you will not be charged again. The upgrade of any prepaid time cannot be reverted back to Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass."

*****

For those wanting to buy additional months of Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass, as an alternative to buying a 12 month card at a retailer, check your Microsoft Rewards.

https://account.microsoft.com/rewards/

You can buy both individual months and a 12 months of both Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for Points. I bought 12 months of Xbox Live Gold for just under 30,000 points.

If you have the points, you can add a few additional months or a 12 month pass to combine with this deal. I used my rewards for an additional 12 months of live. Combining that with my existing months of Game Pass and Gold, I bought the $1 Ultimate Pass and now it will last until June 2022.

For those wanting to play Xbox Game Pass for PC, download the Xbox Game Pass for PC (beta) for Windows 10 app here: https://www.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-g...s/pc-games

*****

If anyone needs help with their maths, this website makes it easier: https://www.timeanddate.com/date/duration.html - add your time from today's date to the end of your Gold date, and end of your Gamepass date (if you subscribe to both) then figure out what you need to add to max out the benefit


UPDATE FROM THE XBOX E3 STREAM
Game Pass Ultimate also includes Game Pass PC. So 100 games are available on PC also using the Xbox Beta app from the Windows Store.

I'm quite confused, but I think I just spent $1 and now my game pass ultimate is good through 2022? I originally had Live and the old pass through 2020 (different dates). I have no idea what I just bought, but it seems to have worked out well. Now I just have to live through 2022!

Yep. Any months you have of live, plus any months you have on Gamepass get added together and added into the one month you get for a dollar. It's only that way on the initial conversion, though - there's a conversion chart out there that shows how much time you get for a one month of Live when converted, for example, that's nowhere near as generous, but the initial signup is quite forgiving.

Wish I had bought another year of live on top of what I had. I'm still good through April 2020 though so that's pretty tite.

Someone help me out. I have 306 days of Live left. If I do this $1 thing, I get Gamepass until that time as well? Can I buy another year of Live, or two, before I do this and get nearly three years of GP ultimate for $1*?

You should be able to. It's supposed to add GamePass plus Live plus the one month you get for a dollar. Definitely load up the Gold before converting.

I'm still not sure how the formula works, but I know it worked out great for me. I had both Game Pass and Live into 2020 though.

I merged my accounts on the XBox into Ultimate,payed until May 2020 but somehow,on my PC,even if I login with the same account,it doesnt want to let me play the Gamepass games without asking me to pay 1 buck for one month...when I installed the beta app yesterday,I even did the Windows 10 update and all.Somehow it sees an old Xbox account I made a long time ago and I dont know how to change that...really weird,guess I will give them a call tomorrow.

So anyone can get this gamepass ultimate deal? I guess I thought it sounded like it was only for 'xbox insiders' or whatever that is. If anyone can get it I guess I'll go out and get at least another year of live and then plop down another dollar to have gamepass...

Yes, I'm not an insider or anything and got the deal.

Wish I had done this before getting the $1 deal. But yeah you shouldn't have any problems as long as the promotion is running. MS is going all in on Game Pass and it rules

I’d suggest getting some discounted live Gold cards to take full of the upgrade. I’m a lil hesitant cos I got over three years worth if they’re combine but they’ll only do three/36-months... but then again I may do it tonight cos who knows how long this deal is gonna be around

This is ridiculous. I bought an extra year and then did the $1 deal...so $51 got me XGPU until Nov 18, 2021. If you plan on keeping Gold or have Gold already, there is no reason not to do this.

So on the FAQ it says if you add standard Gold/GP codes to your account, it gets converted to UGP at some rate.

So if I add a 3 month XBL Gold code, how many months am I getting? Should I just wait for UGP to expire then resub with the 3 month code?

I'm good through March 2021 or so. Rarely use Live anymore but with more PC games being added decided to grab it. Probably a few console only games I'll eventually check out as well.

If you only added three months and that’s all you have total then I believe you’ll have four months when you convert it, that extra month will be the one dollar.

I’d look for the cheapest deal for either gold or game pass, more than likely it’ll be for gold. Get the most you can, no more that three years worth cos they set up a three year stacking limit(36 months) and then convert it.
