Microsoft has invested big in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and as a package it's really hard to beat. Whether you already own an Xbox or you're getting or gifting one this holiday season, the value of the package cannot be understated. And thanks to this Black Friday deal at Best Buy (opens in new tab) you can join up for less.

Amazon also seems to be price matching but it seems to be going in and out of stock there, but it's worth keeping an eye on.

Ordinarily these three month subscription codes would cost $45 but right now they're almost half price which makes them an absolute bargain. You can either stack multiple or simply roll over to monthly payments once the time on the card has run out, and any current Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass prepaid subscription time is converted when you upgrade to Ultimate.

So what do you actually get with it? A lot.

  • All new Microsoft first-party games on both Xbox and PC, including Microsoft Flight Sim, Gears 5, and many more.
  • A huge library of third-party games on both Xbox and PC, including the likes of PUBG, The Witcher 3 and Monster Hunter: World.
  • Access to the EA Play library on Xbox with titles like Jedi: Fallen Order and access to 10-hour trials of new EA games.
  • Access to cloud streaming on Android including new touch-optimized titles like Dead Cells and Minecraft Dungeons.

Game Pass Ultimate subscribers also get select perks throughout the year which usually include content for a variety of games.

This truly is a must buy (opens in new tab) package if you're an Xbox gamer, and there's never a better time than when it's on sale.

  • Same price on Amazon Canada
  • Totally took advantage of that sale. Thank you for the heads up. They didn't have that posted in store.
  • 3 card limit on orders (1 card on 3 orders). Also it appears that the extra month they offer for recurring billing actually stacked on my account. I got 1 year for 3 cards.
  • The walmart deal is now live.
