How to avoid the Xbox Game Pass price increase ($44.99 for 3 months of Ultimate)

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: 3-month membership

By getting 3 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $44.99, you can actually avoid this Game Pass price increase. We recommend that you secure your current subscription for as long as possible. You can use Game Pass for a maximum of 36 months, meaning you have the option to purchase 3-month subscriptions up to 12 times.

Admittedly, this approach might put a dent in your wallet, which totals $539.88 if you purchase the 3-month package using the link above. However, if you compare it to the new cost of Game Pass Ultimate for 36 months of $16.99 per month, which is $611.64, you’ll find that you’ll save $71.76 on your subscription over the next three years . Otherwise, secure your membership for at least a year to ensure at least some savings overall.

The last Prime Day we had is hard to beat, and this doesn’t match the best 1TB for $50 deal during that sale, but it’s pretty close.
