Right now on Eneba, you can purchase a 3-month Xbox Live Gold digital code for $5.71. This is a global code, meaning no VPN needed for use in the U.S. If you're a Game Pass Ultimate member, you can redeem for 50 days of Ultimate (I just did that with my account).

Nothing special is needed, after purchasing redeem here [microsoft.com]
; It will automatically give you 3 months of Gold, or 50 days of Ultimate when you redeem. Again, no special steps needed.
NOTE: As always, YMMV as the prices on Eneba will increase/decrease depending on demand. I bought (4) earlier, was NOT limited to (2) per transaction. I've purchased from Eneba over the last couple years and have not had any issues.
