Again, if you're starting new or if your account expired, the far better deal is to buy up to three years of Gold and upgrade, though. If you're a bit out and you fear the upgrade path is going to go away then yeah I can see why you'd reup.

Deck, where do you see $23.50. At cdkeys all I see is 3 month non USA for 23.79 and the USA version for $28.59.

I just got three years for $96, for the second time, following the comments in the other thread.

Okay it's $23.79, if that makes a difference. That's worldwide.

So it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t have USA flag on it? Thanks Decker.

It's a worldwide code (WW). I just redeemed one.

Just ordered two worldwide codes and redeemed them. No issues at all

Only funny thing was that this was the first time I've ordered from CD Keys where the code showed up as a photo of the card and not just a text code I could easily copy & paste.

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

$93 total for three years of Game Pass Ultimate seems like a better deal to me. Like, a quarter the price that you all just paid. Discussed constantly the last several years in the video game deals thread, and currently in the Black Friday video game haul thread.

Yeah if you have no current subscription, sure do that. But I extended from. Jan 2025 to April 2025. For me that's not an option and frankly I don't know if I would even be offered that once it expires.
​​​​​​I'm fine with topping my subscription off rather than chancing it later.
And $96 for three years is 1/3 the cost of $95 for one year, not 1/4. 😉

Doh! And to think I almost got a full ride in college based on math….

Ok, makes sense for you now I guess. But this is now 4-5 years that we’ve been preaching this deal, and it still works.

Could someone please reiterate the deal or possible link? Is it only for new subs? I’m sorry.

Only for those without an active GCU subscription. You can buy a discounted Gold Membership for up to 3 years and then upgrade that subscription to GPU for $1 more.
I can't believe that deal is still live but apparently it is. But ONLY for those without an active GCU subscription now.
