2022 could be another big year for Xbox Game Pass, and we’ve got a lot more to be excited about with the upcoming Xbox and Bethesda showcase on June 12. But before that, how about we give you an amazing offer on Xbox Game Pass? Final?
If you are Not actually If you’re a Game Pass Ultimate subscriber, then this offer is specifically for you. If you’re currently subscribed, my best suggestion is to turn off auto-renew, wait for your subscription to end, and then do this trick again to save some money. This is not a new deal of any kind, but rather a great trick that many more Xbox users can take advantage of. So here’s how you can get 2 years of Xbox Game Pass for just $135 / £111.
2 years of Game Pass Ultimate for $135 (save $224)
There are a couple of ways to do this, depending on whether you’ve used the $1/£1 Game Pass sign-up promotion before. Don’t worry if it is, this hack will still work fine, you will only pay $135 for 2 years instead of $121.
First, your Game Pass subscription should not currently active – I repeat you should not have an active Game Pass for this to work. Once you are sure, continue to the next step.
You must then invest in up to 3 years of Xbox Live Gold. You can easily buy 12-month Xbox Live Gold codes from Amazon or other retailers, costing $60/£50 depending on your region.
I recommend stacking 2 years of Xbox Live Gold
The maximum stacking amount for Gold subscriptions is 36 months (costing $180), any greater amount will be forfeited. So, to keep things safe for those who currently have a Gold membership, I’d recommend sticking to just 2 years’ worth (costs $120/£100).
Now here’s the fun part. Once you’ve redeemed these codes and built up your Xbox Live Gold membership to your liking, you can convert this time to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at a 1:1 ratio.
Head over to the Xbox Live Gold upgrade page and proceed to convert your paid time directly into Game Pass Ultimate. If you have never used the upgrade feature before, this will cost you $1/£1 (total cost is $121/£101). If you’ve used this before, it’ll cost you $14.99 / £10.99 to upgrade.
Generally, at most, you’ll pay just $135 for 2 years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (instead of $359). If you manage to make a 3-year conversion, at most you’ll pay $195 instead (instead of $539). Now that is a huge discount. Once you’re done, just make sure you turn off auto-renew too.
This isn’t a new deal, but it’s worth writing home about
You’ve probably seen this deal mentioned in the Game Pass deal comments multiple times, just without a concrete level of instructions to help you get the discount. That’s why I wanted to offer help, so that everyone can get the best discount on Game Pass using this conversion trick.
At the time of writing, this conversion deal is still active, but there are still many unsure users asking about the deal. Several Xbox threads on Reddit and ResetEra ask the same question: is it still working? For now, the answer is yes, TechRadar also recently confirmed that the deal is still working, along with many other Xbox Reddit threads confirming the legitimacy.

Does Game Pass work for PC?
Game Pass for PC is included in Game Pass Ultimate, along with Game Pass for console, EA Play and your Xbox Live Gold membership, and many other benefits.
If you just want Game Pass for PC without everything else, you can do that too. You can get Xbox Game Pass for PC for $1 for the first month and $9.99 a month after that. However, Game Pass for PC has a slightly different roster than consoles, so be sure to check the current rosters beforehand.
