"We ran into an error while disabling recurring billing" WTF

Same error when I also try and cancel my sub.

I jumped on the $0.05 cents a day plan before and now it says under recurring billing

"Your plan will switch to 3 month recurring billing on 1/19/2020.
You'll be charged $44.99 + tax on 1/19/2020"

Wow thanks for the heads up, now time to cancel until an actual deal comes up again

That is not your current plan, that's just the plan it defaults your selection to when you go to "Switch plan."

Actually it would be $18.30 this year because it's a leap year Wink

But sadly there's no way this was going to fly, and obviously Microsoft is in the process of fixing it now.

Mine is still blank, but if by "actual deal" you're expecting to see $0.05/day again, dream on.

Yeah it's been this way since last week. Whatever fix they are working on is slow.

Happened to my roommate. Showed he owed 5 cents but it would not let him pay it and suspended his account. He called and they said they'd charge the 5 cents within 2hrs. Woke up next morning to his subscription CANCELLED and account still inactive. He called and they said they "felt the best way to resolve it was to cancel the subscription". They would not start it back up at the same price or any discount at all. Only 14.99/mo. He escalated it but they stuck to it and claimed the promotion was over.

Wtf is up with people on Slickdeals lately. Reading is fundamental. I could give 2 shits if they cancel my subscription or give me the opportunity to cancel before they bill me. The available games on game pass is barely worth $.05 a day. My whole point is if they charge me more than I agreed to when I signed up without informing me of said change first, I am going to be pissed. What am I going to do about it? Nothing. Just dispute the charge. I never said anything about a class action.
Nah man, the games on game pass have been a blast for me. Just considering all the games I've beaten in the past months makes it worth it (senua, outerworlds, dishonored, tomb raider, most of the halo games, and the list goes on). Might not be value to you, but to others it has been pretty sweet.

The deal was too good to be true, and in the end will just cancel once the time come sin 2022, but for now will just keep enjoying. And lets be honest, they will let everyone cancel before they get billed or will give you the money back since it is a mistake on their end to begin with.

I don't know about that. If he was on the subscription page of the my account part it is definitely going to happen. That is the part that matters most, sounds like he was just on a sign up page.

When I select change on the recurring billing page, I see this:
"Your plan will switch to 3 month recurring billing on 10/10/2020.
You'll be charged $44.99 + tax on 10/10/2020."

So, I'm good for a while at least.

It doesn't have to be an insane price mistake there are always deals for ultimate/gamepass on here. Last time I started was a dollar a month I saw in slick deals back in August. I have no problem playing other games until another deal comes up.

Some how it gives me an error while I trying to cancel on M$ website. I cancel the reccuring payments in PayPal. Sneaky a$$&#-

Unlike most I didn't repay for many months of Xbox live so my recurring charges happen at some point this month. When that happens I'll report back what they actually charged me.
