I guess this still works if your ultimate sub has expired. 3 years of gold turned into ultimate for $15. Also, Newegg has a deal for Gold right now.
Yeah, this is basically what I did a few months ago. I didn’t have Ultimate. My kid had about 200 bucks worth of LameStop credit I wanted to burn before they go out of business. I originally wanted to by the Series X off them but they never had them in stock and if they did they only sold them in $700+ bundles. Fuck that.
Converted them to XBox live cards, loaded up and switched over. Cool thing is I Game share with my oldest kid and he has access to Ultimate as well (without paying).
