No there isnít. I can only install it or buy it as a gift for $19.99. I should call them and see.

Doesnít anyone else have EA Access and Gold? What do you see?

Are you sure you didn't already "buy it"? What you're describing sounds like what I see after I've already purchased one of the free games.

This is what I see for that game now:



I also see it under "My Games" in my Xbox Profile on the site:

That is exactly what I see. But I don't think I bought it, just got it with EA Access, as far as I can remember.

Back with the 360, the website would tell you "You Bought This Game on 4/13/11" and then I would know for sure.

Decker, if you use the Xbox phone app and click on the game tile, it should also show you what date you bought it, if that's the case. When I just checked mine, it says 'Purchased 3/14/19'

You are a GENIUS! I hadn't purchased it. When I logged into the app on my phone I was able to purchase it for Free. Wasn't able to do that on either the XO or the website which both told me I could install the game with EA Access.

XBox Live Gold deal. Buy 3 months for $20.99, get another 3 months free. So $20.99 for 6 months total.

Heads up: A couple days ago Microsoft sent an in-system message with a free $5 code to both my account and my son’s (but not my wife’s). Code is good through April with a 90 expiration once redeemed.

I'd seen rumors of this, but looks like they are going to offer a Live/Gamepass combo subscription for $14.99 a month: https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/5/18...se-date-rumors

Obviously if you are a savvy shopper, you can get a far better deal by buying separate, but still not a bad idea to offer a combined savings.

Just a heads up. I donít know how Microsoft determines who will get it, but I got a free month of Game Pass yesterday because of being a Sling TV subscriber.

Speaking of Game Pass, there is a special right now on
Amazon Amazon
: Buy 3 month code for $29.99 and get a second 3 month code for FREE. Only one bonus code per account.
I can vouch - that works, instantly. You can see in info on the page under

It says exactly what I copied and pasted above on the website, but not on my phone. I would confirm that you see it on a computer before you buy just in case

I can confirm the 3 free months of game pass from Amazon works. After you purchase it you will receive two emails with codes. The first one is the one you paid for and obviously the 2nd one is the free 3 months. I purchased it the other day. Just add the digital 3 month game pass to cart, go to check out and when you get to final payment screen it should say promotional offer applied right near your total.
