Xbox Game Pass

From now until February 21st, new Xbox Game Pass subscribers can enjoy a two-month membership for just $2 directly from Microsoft. You can also grab two months of Xbox Live Gold (required for online play) for $2 as well.

Xbox Game Pass is subscription service exclusively for Xbox One consoles. It's often described as "Netflix for video games." For a monthly fee — normally $9.99/month — users gain access to an archive of 100+ Xbox One and Xbox 360 backward-compatible games. These range from fresh triple-A releases to top-tier indie games.

If you want to play games online against other people, receive special discounts, and get access to early demos and free games every month, then Xbox Live Gold is for you. The service also usually costs $9.99/month, so this deal provides an 80% savings.

Terms and Conditions to Consider

Be careful with your billing cycle. Once you sign up for this $2 promo, a second month of service is automatically added to your account. Slickdealer glass_tiki noted last time this deal came up that you shouldn't disable the recurring billing service until after you're in that second month. Doing so shifts your billing date and could result in you losing the second free month.

Also, sflv claimed that "even though it says 10 days left of this deal, they can pull it at any time." Apparently they missed out on the last Game Pass discount because Microsoft pulled it early. So if you're interested, get yours sooner rather than later.

And finally, this deal is exclusively for new subscribers. If you're considering signing up for the 14-day free trial, you may not be considered a new subscriber when the trial ends. And thus, wouldn't be eligible for the promo.
