In particular, we find Xbox Game Studio games at the same time as their box release, such as flight simulator , Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite or soon Starfieldand red fallbut also games from rather large third-party publishers like Sniper Elite 5, Total War Warhammer 3 orBack 4 Blood,again as soon as they come out.
The “advantages» have been designed to integrate bonuses or DLCs usually paid for in games, with for example starter packs for Smite or Warframe, or even objects for the game World of Tanks. Microsoft also regularly offers partner offers, sometimes including months of subscriptions to other services like Spotify Premium.
Thanks to a trick allowed by the firm, this subscription at 12.99 euros can go to less than 5 euros per month.
The trick: a very advantageous conversion rate
Let’s start by saying that this cheat was featured on the official Xbox blog, and was explicitly mentioned in the Xbox Game Pass FAQ on Microsoft’s official site until the end of the year 2020. It is quite simple to understand: Microsoft offers players who already have an Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass subscription, with prepaid months, to be able to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and see their existing subscription time converted to the new service.
Where it is very advantageous is that the conversion rate applied at the time of subscription is 1 month for 1 month, within the limit of 36 months. In other words, for example, you can take 24 months of Xbox Live Gold, then subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and get 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
Microsoft gave the following example in its FAQ: if a player already has 3 months of Xbox Live Gold on their account when subscribing to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, this subscription becomes 3 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. As we said, the subscription conversion rate is no longer specified today in the FAQ.
Attention, this offer is reserved for accounts without a current Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.. If you already have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, the conversion rate applied is no longer the same. You must therefore store a maximum of months of Xbox Live Gold subscriptions before subscribing, or wait until your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription is terminated.
For the trick to work on your account, you must therefore be in one of the following situations: have no current subscription, only have a current Xbox Live Gold subscription, or only have an Xbox Game Pass subscription or the current PC Game Pass. If you have an active subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, go your way.
This is not a discovery offer. If you have already subscribed to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in the past, for example several years ago, and you no longer have an active subscription to date, the trick will also work.
How to get Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for less
Xbox Live Gold is officially billed at 59.99 euros for 1 year, against 156 euros 12 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, we therefore save nearly 100 euros per year thanks to this trick. Here are the steps to follow.
Before proceeding, remember that this technique only works that if you don’t have an active Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. If you are already subscribed to this plan, then Microsoft practices a more classic and much less interesting conversion.
If you don’t have a subscription, or are only subscribed to Xbox Live Gold or classic Xbox Game Pass (on PC, or on Xbox), you can continue.
When subscribing to Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft will confirm that it will convert subscription time to the new service. The dedicated Microsoft account page makes sure of this. After the operation is completed, the Xbox Live Gold subscription displays “Subscription converted to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate”, while the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription indicates a long-term expiration. It is also on this page that you can cancel the automatic billing of the subscription, in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises after the prepaid period.

To verify your subscription, go to your Microsoft account settings, under “services and subscription“. If your subscription expires in less than a few months, it may be best to turn off auto-renewal and wait for the subscription to end before using the method described in this guide.
Does this work if I’m already an Xbox Game Pass subscriber?

Please note that if you have a current subscription month, you will not be able to accumulate 36 months of Xbox Live Gold subscription by using three 12-month cards. Once you have reached 25 months of subscription (1 month and twice 12 months) you will not be able to use an additional 12 month card, which would make you exceed the 36 month limit. You can either use cards with fewer months, or wait until your Xbox Game Pass subscription month expires.
I accepted free months and can’t use the last 12 month Xbox Live Gold card
When you activate a 12-month Xbox Live Gold card, Microsoft may offer you an additional month for free. It is important not to accept it to be able to accumulate up to 36 months of subscription, the maximum allowed by Microsoft. If you accepted this free month, we recommend that you contact Xbox Support to have it removed from your account.
