Xbox live gold hack problem?

Has anyone recently had a problem redeeming codes on Xbox?

I’ve bought a CDkeys live gold code in order to stack and convert the ultimate and have changed the region of my account and used a VPN but I still can’t redeem the code. It’s saying that the code was purchased in a different region from the account. This has never happened in the last 3-4 times I’ve done it.

Has anyone got any ideas?

    I’ve done it now. I was stupid and changed my region to turkey as well as the account. All sorted now:)

    I had the same issue in the past, it was my Nordvpn being rubbish so used windscribe and no issue.

    Ignore the comments of MS clamping down. (edited)

    Don't/shouldn't need to change anything region wise (on console) just need a VPN on the site to redeem the code. (edited)

    They might have sent you a code from the wrong region? You could try a different VPN to check.

    This is a known issue Microsoft are clamping down on us exploiting the system. You need to keep re entering it and after about 30 attempts it may do it. I think this is a sign of things to come if I'm honest with you (edited)

    At the end of the day was not worth it, i was trying to buy 1 year live gold to upgrade it to gamepass ultimate, the roadblock besides finding a working VPN (windscribe in my case) is trying to add founds to the account, you will need a turkish bank card, sadly gift cards are no longer available.

    FYI urbanVPN, expressvpn, nordvpn will not work, dont waste your money

    I just did this yesterday. After looking at old HUKD walk throughs which were really useful, I thought I would share my experience in case its useful for others.

    I bought 3x 12month xbox gold passes (Turkey) from CDKeys. I then bought a 1 month non-stackable ultimate pass from Gamivo.

    I made a new microsoft and xbox account so didnt need to wait for it to expire. I tried redeem my codes using nordvpn on my PC but it wouldnt let me. Tried a few times still nothing.

    Downloaded UrbanVPN onto my iphone went Incognito (probably a bit of an overkill) and was able to redeem my xbox gold codes for three years. I then went onto my microsoft account on PC without VPN and it asked if I wanted to upgrade to an Ultimate pass. I clicked yes and just paid the £11 for the ultimate pass to save time and hassle. It converted the 3years xbox gold to 3 years ultimate.

    One other thing to note is UrbanVPN is no longer free. I had to do this using their free 1 week trial.
