Deal is for new subs only. This is actually better than the E3 deal, which was your first month for $1.

Really great service Microsoft has going on here. Been playing a ton of great games for dirt cheap

Are there any deals where I can buy more free time?
i know some places on reddit where you can but im not sure i can post links here. add me on steam if interested and post a comment on my profile so i know its u.
you can also upgrade your current subscription to ultimate and get an additional 2 months for 2 dollars , ideal for pc+console owners
Thanks for the heads up on this
If I get the 3 months PC game pass and upgrade it to 2 Months ultimate, I get 5 months ultimate?
yes i just did that and now i have all my remaining months upgraded to ultimate + 2 extra months , and you can keep extending the ultimate subscription after that up to 3 years for 1$/mo :D . i'm currently on 3 years of ultimate just by doing that
I did that and I have 5 months of ultimate now but when I wanna extend it, it has a $14.99/Month price tag. So, U had Xbox Gold or else?
no but it seems to have been a bug that got fixed now xD at least i exploited it before it got fixed lol
any way to change back to normal xbox pc pass from ultimate ?
Why would you want to do that? Ultimate includes the normal pass, so I don't see the benefit of going back :)
the benefit is, that the PC pass is cheaper than ultimate when its expired. :)
once the ultimate expires you will have the choice to extend just the pc game pass , just cancel the auto-renewal and wait :p
ok..i was afraid i couldnt go to normal cause now i only see options for ultimate..thx :)
Now I just need an Xbone and/or Win 10! XD
I don't like grey markets but I bought my Windows 10 and Microsoft Office there, Windows 10 Pro is about 2.5 Euro in some of grey markets.
I don't think you understand the meaning of hate.
I had bad experiences in some of grey markets like HRK (Dup key) and G2A (The game that I bought being revoked 2 week later), so ...
if you have a windows 7 code, and a thumb drive with the windows 10 media creation software on it (which is downloadable for free from microsoft), just use that to gain windows 10 - I just rebuilt my ageing computer and decided to install windows 10 (which hurt somewaht as I love windows 7 still) and just used my old windows 7 code when it asked for one during the install :) installed and licenced with MS fine :) (google shows this as still being a viable way of upgrading, largely because MS want us all to be their drones badly :P) - Not that I am using this $5 deal though, as I have too many games on steam already and no time to play even those :(
"new subs only" :(
Then again, I'm not using it at all. Lack of time ;(
Xbox application for PC demands Windows version 1903, unfortunately i cannot update to it because my pc is not compatible according to Microsoft.. Should i force install 1903 or just trust Microsoft and wait? I dont want to struggle with Windows if i force install and there happens a problem.
Honestly, 50/50 chance of it bricking your PC or working perfectly fine. There's just no way to know.
If you really wanted to try you could grab a blank drive and install it on there first. If everything works, repeat on your main drive. Of course, make sure you've got everything backed up first.
I really want to try this 3 month 5 dolar deal but too much of a hassle for Windows. I guess i will pass this offer, thanks for the information.
On April 2019, Windows 10 Corrupted my Internal Hard Drive's twice, managed to fix them and recover some data, not all sadly, with the help of my Windows 7 partition that didn't got corrupted(Thank God for that) because Windows 10 couldn't fix it. Tried newest Version of Windows 10 today fresh install and everything and again Windows 10 corrupted 1 of my HDD. :l
(Windows 10 Best Operating System Ever :l )
Did that to two of my HDD as well back in '16. What solved it for me was installing Intel Rapid Share Technology and editing some stuff pertaining to HDD in the power plan. Don't know if it would still work now but since then I haven't had any HDD issue with Windows 10 (hopefully I didn't jinx it)
Great deal.. I didn't see it until I installed the App,
then the 3 month option showed up.
Let's see... Metro Exodus, State of Decay 2 & ????
If Prey is still on there you should definitely play that.
It's a good deal if you want to play some AAA games, otherwise I already have many of them on Steam.. not enough time, but been playing a few of the smaller titles. Would never buy a pass on normal price though, it's enough to buy the actual games I want.
I've got 7 months of Ultimate right now, paid a whopping $3.39. Playing State of Decay 2 atm, enjoying it. Quite a few other games on it I hope to play as well. Day 1 access to Outer Worlds will be nice too.
Good deal, if only steam link worked with these games..
maybe https://alia5.github.io/GloSC/ could do the trick
I need to buy a gift card for US microsoft store. Which site do you guys use/recommend?
Joining Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will upgrade your remaining Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass for Console or Xbox Game Pass for PC time
For 1 $
Thanks for the heads up. I'm more interested in the console side (playing Halo with my son), but with the Ultimate upgrade mentioned here it could help, as long as it's still available when my current sub runs out.
buying the ultimate upgrade for 1-2$ will extend your current subscription periode by 1-2 months and upgrade it all to ultimate :p
I currently have Ultimate from an earlier offer. I don't imagine that I'd be able to extend it with the new upgrade, or activate the PC one while it's active, so will try when it expires.
Has anyone found a reliable way to link these Xbox games installed on PC, to the Steam Overlay?
does it work if you do it like i do with origin games ? i just add the origin shortcut to my non-steam games and then rename it to one of EA's games (battlefield 1 for instance) and add the same shortcut again and name it after another game and so on . then when i want to play that one origin game and let my friends on steam know i'm in it i just start the origin shortcut i added that i named after that said game and then the overlay will work just fine :D . requires some work but it's the only way that works lol sin e adding games will desactivate the steam overlay as soon as the game starts
All Steam competitors link fine, from GOG, Uplay, Origin, Epic. It's just the Xbox games which have encrypted files and more nonsense than it's worth the hassle to link them on Steam.
Check the github link I posted above, I used that to play ori with the steam controller, I'm not sure it's what you are looking for but it's something
Thanks for the suggestion even if Steam controller isn't what I wanted from the Overlay itself. I just wish for a simple way to link all my screenshots and upload them on Steam, even if the game in question came from another platform.
Nope, haven't managed to make it work. If you do find a way at some point tho, please give me a heads up how.
Thanks for letting me know. Will do.
When the first offer came out i saw some posts on the internet explaining how it was supposed to work; so I bought several cheap gold keys, and then I bought the promotion and now I have ultimate until March 2020 for like 20 bucks.
Nice one..i bought the Xbox PC pass 3,99€ for 3 month..got one month for free..than i added my 3 month free from AMD offer got one month for free.... i activated the one month free from Alienware got also one month free and now bought the Ultimate offer 2 month for 2€ so i got Ultimate now till 26.07.2020.... nearly one year for only paying 6€ :)
Hey Makromatee.. so the Ultimate offer 2 month for 2€, is that still an active promotion?
Do you have a link?
edit ---------- nevermind. .i found it.. and its even better now.. 3 months of ultimate for $1 !!!!
So my account says: next payment = 8/26/2020 !!! sweet!
yes its a good deal :)
To bad its not availible in my country.
i could get around it when i activated the alienware code, so at least i got 2 months from there.
Unfortunately, I think have to pass on this deal since it needs Win10. Namely, I recently tried clean installing Windows 10 on my laptop (had Win7 before), and it made everything slow to a crawl, even with nothing else installed. I updated my drivers, BIOS, and everything -- still get several seconds lag just opening Windows Explorer. Literally everything runs so slow that I am seriously doubting "upgrading" my beloved (gaming) desktop to such a horrible OS. I also read that the latest Win10 update 1903 is known to cause lag issues on some machines, and nobody knows how to fix it. Going to try another clean install just in case the order matters on upgrading BIOS and installing Win10, though my hopes are still low. If anyone knows how to fix this insane lag issue, please let me know!
3 months now for $1 (or whatever your native currency is). I'm sold. Literally gonna format my Windows 10 ltsc pc for this (so I can use the xbox app). No other subscription service comes close to this one. The games in it are just insane. And now we get THREE months basically for free. Insane.
No joke. Paying 1 buck to play Final Fantasy 15? Microsoft isn't playing around.
You also get 3 months of Discord Nitro and 6 months of Spotify Premium with it. Hell of a deal !!
Hey Rockebull.. i didn't see the spotify and discord?? How do I find that in my account?
I didn't get it either. I have contacted support to ask how to redeem it. Still waiting for reply.
keep us posted on their reply!
and have a good weekend
The latter doesn't seem to be available in Australia, at least - it mentions 1 month of EA Access and 3 months of Discord Nitro, but doesn't mention Spotify at all.
I subscribed recently until June and having a blast playing Forza Horizon 4. Its worth it for that game alone, and there is going to be additions every month. Game pass great value for money and i highly recommend it.
I have a couple of 3 months codes from recent buys, waiting to be used. Or traded, now that there's a price on them, still on the fence about that. The service model is not a good fit for me, tons of backlog and very few spare time.
I keep seeing people posting about activating many offers, but this is only for new subscribers, so it can't "stack" if you already have it, right?
It's for new subscribers to Ultimate. I was a subscriber of Game Pass for PC until January, got the offer, now I am an Ultimate subscriber until April.
Few pieces of advice for people new to this racket:
Is there a source for these codes?
one month codes from Alienware, twice
3 month codes from AMD?
I think some other sites give out the one month codes earlier in the Summer too
I see. People from the US really have an unbelievable deal with these junk food rewards.
Rage 2 added today
others coming soon
How do we reedem discord and spotify on pc ?
