Microsoft Rewards (Bing Rewards) has Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on discount right now. These were normally 12,000 for 1 month and 35,000 for 3 months so this is a big discount if you have a lot of Microsoft rewards available. Obviously still not as good the old Xbox Live deals that used to be around 22,000 for one year of XBL but those have been gone for a while and this is Gamepass Ultimate not just XBL. Prices listed are for those with level 2 discounts (as are the normal prices I listed).

1 Month:
https://account.microsoft.com/rew...0400000335

3 Month:
https://account.microsoft.com/rew...0400000336


It says Limit of 1 (of each) per account. I was able to purchase and redeem (2) 1 month codes and (1) 3 month code so that may not be accurate... But... YMMV of course.

*** Per user firerock31: Turn of auto-bill before redeeming each code and you'll get a free month for each one if you reactivate it during redemption, making this potentially 6 months for 35,900 points - YMMV***

Hopefully my quick math is right:

Assuming $15/month for gamepass (if your value is different, change that number):

1 month @ 8400 points: 15/8400*100= .1785 cpp (cents per point)
3 months @ 24500 points: 45/24500*100 = .184 cpp

And comparing it to 1 year of Xbox live gold (which converts to 4 months of ultimate - I value this at $40 because I can always find a $40 code a few times a year): 40/22000*100 = .182 cpp.

So all great value here for those that have the bing rewards points ready to purchase. (Obviously dependent on how much you think each of the items above is worth)
Sigh I guess no more 12 months Live gold hot deal
Interestingly enough, it gives you a code, not an automatic to account redemption. So you can buy more than 1 but I don't know if you can activate more than 1. I was an existing game pass member and I just activated my 3 months and my 1 month (from this deal) and I got an extra month for turning on auto-billing (which I already had active). So I got 5 months for 32900. Now mine expires on 8/7/2021 Smilie

I agree. It's still no comparison to what we all got from converting our 1 year of XBL from bing rewards to 1 year of Gamepass back when they were 22k or even 29k but if you're not a new member I think this is as good as it gets.

I haven't been able to find 1 year of Xbox Live on offer for months now. Just 1 month and 3 month subscriptions.

Haha I made sure to convert the maximum 3 years. Crazy times, with such a backlog everyone has, I can't ever recommend buying another game again at launch again between the game pass ultimate games or epic/steam free games. Eventually, a majority of these games become free. I've only purchased nintendo switch exclusives or DLC since (destiny main game went free, paid DLC).

I believe the last time it popped up it was 22,500 back in July of last year (that's when I ordered mine before). Hard to know if it will come back. I had been saving my bing rewards points for a game pass deal so I naturally jumped on this. the 5 months I got for 32,900 works out to be 6,580 points per month which is about the most I've ever earned in a month from this (barring purchases), so it would kind of be sustainable.

I stupidly thought it was a super limited time deal so I converted only a year and a half at first. I wish I had waited because in July 2019 they came out with a year of XBL for 22.5k so I could have converted 2.5 years for free. Oh well, lol.

They're really inflating the amount of points needed for these deals. We were very fortunate to get a 1 to 1 last year when we converted Xbox Live Gold to Game Pass. Now...? Nah, I'll probably go without it. I hardly ever use my Xbox One X or PC anymore. The thing that pisses me off about Microsoft games on PC is that I have my gaming rig and a gaming laptop. Every single time I play open a game on my desktop the game syncs the game settings on its own and I completely lose my video settings for Forza Horizon 3 and 4. It's insane. Steam games never do that to my settings. I don't even bother anymore with Microsoft games.

My existing UGP expires on 5/2022. Then I used my reward points to purchase one 1-month and one 3-month. After all said and done, the system turns on auto-payment (which is easy to turn off) and now my UGP expires on 11/2022. Therefore, the system gives me two extra months for turning on auto-payment (one extra month for each reward)!

Damn really? I should have turned it off between rewards. I only got it on the first one I redeemed.

No, I didn't turn it off after each reward. It was off before I redeem the first code (1 month). After I redeemed the first code, it asked me to turn it on and receive an extra month. I agree and the system gave me 2 months. Then I redeemed the 3-month code. It didn't have any prompt about turning on auto-payment. But when I checked my account, it gave me 4 months of UGP.

Maybe you received 6 months of pass as well but you weren't aware of your original expiration month?
