UK Account topped up with Turkey Gold Sub converted to UK GPU
I thought I'd share a step by step guide on how to convert this Xbox Live Gold to Game Pass Ultimate since the comments suggest a great deal of interest in this area:Before you begin:
1 - Make sure your previous Games Pass Ultimate (GPU) subscription has expired/ ended.
2 - You have a VPN handy. A free one to use is Hola VPN
. Test to see if it works for you before proceeding.Step 1
If you have TopCashback use your account to get you to the CD Keys page
and search for '12 MONTH XBOX LIVE GOLD MEMBERSHIP (TURKEY)'. Add 1-3 of these to your basket.
Optional Tip: I usually add everything in my basket beforehand on a website and then click on the Topcashback referral link so that I'm not trying to search for the things I need from the landing page via Topcahsback (hope that makes sense).
- Complete your purchase. I bought 1 to test if this works first but later bought 2 more to make it 36 months.
- Go to redeem.microsoft.com/
and log in to your Microsoft account.Step 3
- Get your code/ codes from CD Keys.
- Connect to a VPN in Turkey.Note: I used Private Internet Access VPN for this step.
- Make sure you are on the Turkey VPN.
- Redeem the code or multiple codes on redeem.microsoft.com/
(you should still be logged into your MS account from Step 2).Step 5
- Check your account here
to make sure your subscription has been updated.Step 6
- Disconnect from the VPN
- Go to the Xbox Game Pass wite: xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-game-pass
- Click on 'Join Ultimate' (not 'See Plans')Step 7
- Click on Join.
- You will have to pay £10.99 for the first month, however, all of your Xbox Live Gold balance will be converted 1:1 to GPU.Step 8
- Check your MS account and give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back. You beat the machine!Note: I turned off recurring billing at this point.
Total cost for 3 years of GPU using this method:
- 3 x Turkish Xbox Live Gold Gift Cards @ £22.99 each
- 1 month of GPU @ £10.99
- Received £1.51 cashback from TCB
Total Cost = £78.45 equivalent to £26.15 per year!
Hope this helps others!
