CRAZY deal (glitch?) on Xbox Game Pass ULTIMATE (the one that combines your gold and game pass for $15 a month). Right now sign up for ONE DOLLAR ($1) and it extends and combines the current remaining time of your subscriptions for $1 total. Then just turn off recurring billing. I had Xbox live gold through May 2020, just paid $1, now have ultimate through May 2020! Maybe a glitch, maybe a special deal because today is their E3 conference. Whatever the reason is, hop on this!

READ THE THREAD BEFORE UPGRADING
This really isn't that complicated, you want to stack your combined service (Gold/Xbox Game Pass) up to a TOTAL of 35-36 months BEFORE UPGRADING. There's plenty of information in this thread, READ IT before you upgrade if you're confused!
Q: When does this promotion end?
A: Unknown, speculative end date is the 17th but not confirmed. Also not confirmed if the current 1:1 conversion ratio will be normal going forward or if it will change. Reddit is suggesting it's running until June 30th: https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/...30th_2019/
This isn't a glitch, from the FAQ:
"As an Insider benefit, when you join Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to give feedback, we will apply any prepaid time you have on Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass or both toward Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, up to a maximum of 36-months.
For example, if you have 3-months of Xbox Live Gold and 3-months of Xbox Game Pass already in your account and join Ultimate as an Insider, you will be charged $1 for your first month. For subsequent months, we will apply 6 months toward your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (up to a maximum of 36-months).
You can cancel your Ultimate membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to your Ultimate benefits until your prepaid time ends, at which point you will not be charged again. The upgrade of any prepaid time cannot be reverted back to Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass."
For those wanting to buy additional months of Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass, as an alternative to buying a 12 month card at a retailer, check your Microsoft Rewards.
You can buy both individual months and a 12 months of both Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for Points. I bought 12 months of Xbox Live Gold for just under 30,000 points.
If you have the points, you can add a few additional months or a 12 month pass to combine with this deal. I used my rewards for an additional 12 months of live. Combining that with my existing months of Game Pass and Gold, I bought the $1 Ultimate Pass and now it will last until June 2022.
If anyone needs help with their maths, this website makes it easier: https://www.timeanddate.com/date/duration.html - add your time from today's date to the end of your Gold date, and end of your Gamepass date (if you subscribe to both) then figure out what you need to add to max out the benefit
UPDATE FROM THE XBOX E3 STREAM
Game Pass Ultimate also includes Game Pass PC. So 100 games are available on PC also using the Xbox Beta app from the Windows Store.
