It looks like Microsoft really wants everybody to be on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The company even roped Taco Bell into helping them. For a limited time, if you order the $5 Xbox food box online, or via the Taco Bell app, you will receive an email with a code to try out Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for 14 days.
If you're a new subscriber and you set your payment to recur, Xbox will add 30 days more for free before you actually pay for the first time. Don't worry if you already subscribe though, you get your normal Xbox Gold membership converted to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for the rest of its life for free.
This is a pretty great deal for everyone, especially Microsoft. It's going all-in on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate so the more people it can hook in with these kinds of deals the better.
