Game Pass Ultimate is now live and can be accessed by converting your current Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass subscriptions.

Your existing subscriptions will be converted at a 1:1 ratio, then after you've upgraded to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, any further Gold redemptions to your account will be converted as follows...

  • 1 month Gold = 20 days Ultimate (3:2)
  • 3 months Gold = 2 months Ultimate (3:2)
  • 12 months Gold = 4 months Ultimate (3:1)

CDKeys seem to be sending out used XBL Gold keys at the moment - avoid!
Cheapest I could find was Instant Gaming (£37.22) and I can confirm that the code worked.

If you have recurring billing switched off before you redeem the code, you can get a bonus month by allowing MS to switch it back on
All the questions that you guys may have is answered here:

The maximum subscription you can extend to is 36 months. So for best deal your Xbox Live+Game pass subscription (and/or combined) should be around 36 months. Say for example you have 21 months of Xbox live and 10 months of game pass left, then to get the best deal you should extend your live subscription by 36-21-10=5 months before getting this deal. If you have say only 13 months of Xbox live and no game pass, then you extend by 36-13-0=23 months before getting this deal. It is not necessary or required to extend to 36 months but this give you the best value for money. Hope this helps.

This is a great deal and Xbox are absolutely on fire for this E3 it seems, heat added!

On a side note, I did post this deal some 25 minutes ago or so and was told it didn't need a separate post by the mod team...

Not that I'm aware of bud. You got a screeny of that message?


That's how it worked a couple of weeks ago.

It was a 1:1 conversion ratio. No message was given to indicate this or any conversation would even be given though.

Basically buy 3 years of cheap gold.
Then buy 1 month of this for £1
= 3 years of gold and gamepass ultimate.
The formula for knowing how much Ultimate you will get is:

Number of Months of Live you have left
+
Number of Months of Game Pass you have left
+
1
=
Number of months of Ultimate you will be given for £1 when you convert.

I have just double checked this on my conversion to ultimate - there is NO 2 months for 3 months thing at all. It simply adds to the two amounts remaining together then adds the free month

Does this work similar to before, i.e. you pay £1 and then don't have to pay anything until it renews?

If you have no outstanding subscriptions (Gold or Game Pass) you're paying £1 for one month of Game Pass. If you do have existing subscriptions they are converted to Game Pass Ultimate at a ratio of 1 month for 20 days Game Pass Ultimate + the £1 for 1 month on top.

So if I added another couple of years to my xbox live account would these convert too?

Many thanks

This is what I'd do to get maximum conversion.

I would say so. I.e. you add 3 years and you get prorata 2 years into the ultimate pass
I'm given a message that joining Ultimate will upgrade my existing subscriptions for "the same amount of time" up to 36 months.No mention of 20 days. A benefit of being an Insider maybe?

There was a post about a month ago saying that insiders could convert to the ultimate and it will be the same amount of time. That was only through the insider app though

I believe it's worded wrong, see post for successful conversions.

If you do take the jump, confirmation would be greatly appreciated

Is 36 months the maximum conversion for stacked subscriptions
Edited by: "Slobadon" 9th Jun
So...my live membership has 7 months left, and 1 month left on game pass. Assume cheapest way forward is to buy a couple of years of live and then upgrade for £1? Any suggestions of cheap live codes? Checked cdkeys and are £34

Yeah, I converted on the insider programme at that ratio. They're currently converting as 1 month = 20 days.

Yep, I had game pass and no live (live was on my son's account).

This is what I'm shown. I was a late arrival to the Insider program and missed out on the previous beta offer. I'm now level 4 I think after I signed up a couple of weeks ago. That's the only reason I can think of for me to be getting anything different from the standard offer.

Edit: Just seen I'm late to the party with the other screenshot posted.
Edited by: "daveroy" 9th Jun
My Gold runs out in March, my GP runs out middle of next month, guessing roundabout converting me to 6months, maybe just in time for Black Friday deal, will see if I get an offer on my xbox
I've just done it but my xbox account says next payment June 2020.. I check xbox app and it says XGP June 2020 and XBL December 2019. So confused

That quoted member has to be mistaken.
No free gold is given for the £1.
It simply forces parity by extending BOTH your gamepass and gold to length of whichever you have most of and then adds a further month to that value.
Obviously maxing out your gold subscription to 36 months first as it's a fraction of the price of gamepass.

Interesting. I've expired the post until we get some kind of solid confirmation. I've not seen anything to suggest a conversion to Game Pass Ultimate has resulted in anything less than I've stated.

This. I can confirm the same thing
Xbox Live was due to end early 07/2021 now paying a quid Ultimate ends 18/6/2021 so lost a few days but what a bargain though Thanks for the heads up.

Crikey then I have no idea.
Just checked mine and it also says 2022.

Got mine during beta of insider.

Looks like they've made the offer less of a straightforward giveaway and instead just very generous .

I had the same issue In beta. Check out the reddit insider info. Might be some use.
I had to hard reset the console and even tried a restore keeping all games and apps. Finally went through on the ‘pay £1 for 3 months but we’ll also match any GP to whatever Gold you have maximum 3 years sub.’
So I quickly whacked on another 13 months gold to maximize my GP conversion.
Subbed on ultimate until May 2022

I'm going to sift through my emails and activate any codes I haven't redeemed yet then take the plunge and see what happens. Fingers crossed its a 1:1 ratio of the sum of both as it was before.

The wording is a touch ambiguous but as is says "membership(s)" I'd be disappointed if it goes by whichever is longer and not 1:1 as a previous poster said.

If you just have Xbox Live Gold (say for example 4 months because it's easier to work out ) you'll get 3 months Game Pass Ultimate. Same would apply for Game Pass (standard).

If you have 4 months Xbox Live and 4 months Game Pass (standard) you would get 6 months of Ultimate, or at least this is how I see it.

At worst case scenario, which I don't expect - it will give you Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for around the same time as your longest subscription of the standard subs.
Awesome. Converted to three years of GP ultimate for £1.00 which is great after getting the Gold for free through MS Rewards.
I just did it and my gamepass was 21/4/21 and my live was 22/1/22
now I have ultimate until 7/6/22
so I've gained 10 months game pass and 5 months live!
