    XBox Ultimate

    Hi Folks,
    I'm after a 12 month subscription to Xbox Ultimate for b0redom jnr's birthday. I can't seem to find any (legit looking) places that sell vouchers for more than 3 months. Can anyone recommend anywhere please?

    Ta....

    Re: XBox Ultimate

    So I found this out while searching
    Microsoft discontinued selling 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscriptions on its website during the summer of 2020
    Do be careful where you buy the codes.


    Also this from MS forum (from 2018):
    If your current subscription is paid for by a prepaid code card, they will stack...

    If you currently pay for the Game Pass subscription with a credit/debit/paypal/bank payment method, you will have to wait until that runs out (and you have to stop the auto renew...
    Edit: Do note that the Amazon store has users saying the 3 months don't stack, and have to wait till one subscription run out to use the next.

    Seems a poor decision. I can't stand monthly/quarterly bills

    Tie you into a regular subscription so they can bill you at full price. Wouldn't pay full whack for PS+ and disable auto renew every time I add a voucher, but don't mind adding 12 months on discount when I've less than 4 months or so remaining. "It's so easy, saves you during to renew" as the car insurance and breakdown cover and everything else tries to do these days

    Re: XBox Ultimate

    You used to be able to get it from Instant Gaming cheap but now the UK is in the restricted list of where it can be used since the B word happened.

    Amazon have 3 months of Ultimate for £33

    Is this a legit site? What I mean is there are some sites that sell codes that are not from publisher etc.
    I've seen some decent prices there... in fact there are some that seem too good to be true. Can you confirm please. Thanks.


    Edit: Nevermind got my answer, they're not legit, this is from a reddit thread: https://rgamedeals.net/store/tadd5

    Re: XBox Ultimate

    See I seen that on CD Keys but there is a message there saying for new memberships only not existing members when I was looking.

    Scryder. I have used Instant Gaming for years. I initially found them as they were advertising on Eurogamer and it had a Eurogamer logo on the actual ad at the time. Never had any issues at all with them and bought stuff for both Steam & I got Starcraft 2 from there when it was on offer. That has been a few years since purchase and all is good still.
