Microsoft unveiled a new type of Gamepass plan at this year's E3 which includes Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass all-in-one. The name of the new subscription is Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and you can currently buy a month from Microsoft for $1 which will also convert your active subscription of Live and Game Pass over to Ultimate.
Now, how do you get this cheaper? Your Ultimate plan converts Live and Game Pass days to Ultimate days. For example:
This can be abused!
If before converting your account into an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate account you add a bunch of extra Xbox live time, that will convert 1:1 into ultimate access. Currently, a 12 month card for Live is $60 USD. A year of Game Pass Ultimate is around $180. That is a savings of $120 a year! Microsoft allows you to convert up to 3 years of active subscription time into Ultimate time which means if you buy 3 12 month cards, you save $360 on game pass ultimate and will have it until this time in 2022.
So, here's the links you need.
I'm kinda happy I've got it for the next 2 years, though 3 would have been awesome.

Gold subscription purchased. Digital copy was available and hit my email immediately. It's already credited to my Microsoft account. I only wish this lasted longer... I'd have more money to throw at it late July. Oh well, still a really solid deal.
Now to see if the whole transition to Ultimate works right... brb
Now you kids are probably saying to yourselves, "Hey Matt, how can we get back on the right track?"
Good stuff. My Game Pass was expiring, and set to auto-pay next week. Gold was set to auto-pay for early October. I bought 1 year of Gold (using affiliate link, ofc) and the conversion pushed my MS account to 2/26/2021 as the next auto-pay for Ultimate. So ~16 months worth of Ultimate for ~$64 with taxes. $4 per month is a helluva deal.
I subbed to Game Pass Ultimate before realizing I could add gold time to abuse the system, but I didn't have the money to buy extra time anyway.
The end of days is coming. Doomsayer was right all along.
