Last page or two of the original thread discuss this as well: https://slickdeals.net/f/13697612-game-pass-for-0-05-daily-mistake?v=1

Not really a surprise, it was only a matter of time.

Ever heard of "buy now, think later"?
Dude, the buy now think later mentality does work for certain goods (ie $25 PS Plus from Amazon, $1 Yoshi game from Target, $10 joycon from Best Buy and such) but it really doesn't work with services like ongoing subscription especially with the TOS being disclosed. 99% of the time people don't read TOS especially when it clearly said company or whoever provide the service can revoke the service at anytime without reason. Heck BBY for example cancelled GCU membership program without warning. Gratefully, BBY honors those still in the program. It is what it is....

I signed up for a dollar on 12/16 and had recurring billing at 0.05 starting in March. So far I have not used any of its features. I feel its a waste of money for me even at 5 cents, so if it has been removed, I will cancel the sub.
Duh??

I am going to raise hell if they change the price and charge me without contacting me first as the email that they sent me when I signed up states "You'll be billed every day at $0.05 plus applicable taxes. We'll email you ahead of time if that price ever changes"
Why would you when it just a simple cancellation on their part? Overcharge you is a different story however

They're very unlikely to not contact you considering their terms specify that they will. But they do not have to notify you much in advance considering the billing cycle of 1-day. And after they notify you, not much you can do if you don't like the new terms. Pay up or cancel basically.

Can't cancel recurring billing or cancel subscription. Microsoft has got us all locked in at $14.99/month!
They know and they are working on it. Give them time at least for a day. Why would MS want to ram you down to the ground and choke for your $$? Call them if that bother you so much....

Yeah they wont let you cancel the subscription or remove your card, but I was able to edit my card info so i put in wrong Exp dates. Hopefully the wrong info will make it so any new charges wont go through.

Mine says the same.
Same here... they are no longer showing how much the recurring billing costs where it used to show the .05 cents a day, and whatever it was prior to that.

That they pulled the plug on the .05 cents is one thing, but it is really shady if they are then going to charge full price for it when you are up for renewal. For many of us, that can be a year or two from now, and we likely may have forgotten about this. Kinda shady if they do that without at least an email saying it was a pricing error!
