Microsoft is taking this video game service that they launched a few years ago very seriously. For the same reason, they offer to show us their platform for an almost free price. If you have a euro, you can try Xbox Game Pass in all its glory. The ones from Redmond usually take out promotions from time to time to incentivize Game Pass subscription.
Usually, they will offer us one month for one euro or three months for three euros. However, on key dates such as summer or Christmas they will give us a maximum of three months for a single euro. Once the time runs out, they will charge us the regulatory 9.99 or 12.99 depending on whether we have chosen the Ultimate or PC mode.
In general, if you are not a Game Pass regular, you will be able to take advantage of this offer every time Microsoft launches it, without any problem. In case they put obstacles in your way, you can always take advantage of the offer using a new Microsoft account, but we anticipate that they do not usually put any type of impediment.
Other ways to get cheap Game Pass
In addition to the promotion of Game Pass for one euro, there are other ways to purchase this subscription at a cheaper price than the recommended:
Converting your Xbox Gold to Game Pass
There is a very interesting method to get the Game Pass at a lower price than what they usually ask us for with the monthly fee. Once you activate Xbox Game Pass on an account that already has a xbox gold subscriptionall the months of Gold that you had will automatically convert into months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
Xbox accounts allow you to store up to 36 months subscription. Therefore, by using Xbox Gold cards you can enjoy three years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate saving quite a bit of money in the process. Xbox Gold cards can be found in some online stores. Of the almost 13 euros that the membership would consist of, doing this process will keep you in about 3.75 euros per month.
Buying in key stores
If you want to save money, but you are not interested in complicating your life, the most sensible thing is to do some research in different key stores. These online stores directly sell the codes at lower prices than what Microsoft usually offers us. Some of the most interesting stores are the following:
- Gamivo: In this store you can save approximately 12% on the purchase of a 3 or 12 month membership of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
- CD Keys: This website has quite interesting prices, and sometimes has prices lower than those of Gamivo. You can buy keys to activate Game Pass Ultimate for 6 months for approximately 50 euros.
- Eneba: Although you will not find as many offers as in CD Keys, this online store usually always has stock of licenses.
Shopping in other regions
This trick is already a classic when we talk about subscriptions like Netflix or Spotify. Digital services are usually priced according to the market in which they are being sold. For this reason, in less affluent economies, services such as Xbox Game Pass are cheaper compared to the price we have in Spain. At the moment, all Xbox systems are region freeand Microsoft does not put obstacles at the time of carrying out this operation.
The prices of the Game Pass in these countries will depend on the quotation of their own coins against the euro. Therefore, talking about each country independently would be somewhat tedious. If what you are looking for is the cheapest offer, you may be interested in buying today in one place, and tomorrow in another.
To find the perfect offer, there is the web Xbox Store Checker, which will tell you at all times the most affordable international store to buy your Game Pass. In addition, the website will show you the steps you must follow to be able to materialize the purchase abroad in each case. As usual, to be able to buy the pass using this trick, you will need to use a VPN, preferably a paid one.
Acquiring balance at a lower price
To do this last process, what you should do is buy balance keys at stores like CD Keys or Gamivo. Many of these stores sell credit cards that are worth more than the price you pay for them. For example, you can get to buy a card of 50 euros for about 40 euros.
The offers will always depend on the stock that they have available. Our recommendation is that you take a look at these websites from time to time and buy the cards when you see price drops. In this way, you can later buy your Game Pass membership at a much lower price.
