Xbox Live Gold - 12 Months | $50 | Newegg | Use Code EMCEXEU36

Okay, so you’ve bought a new Xbox. Now what? For starters, you’re going to want to get that sucker online. Xbox Live Gold (or whatever it’s called now) lets you play multiplayer games like Destiny 2 online, gives you access to big deals, and throws an occasional free game your way. It’s a necessity for anyone looking to play Series X|S games online, so it’s the kind of service you’ll likely need sooner or later. Fortunately, you can get a full year of Xbox Live Gold at Newegg right now for $50 by using the code EMCEXEU36 at checkout.


And here’s the best part. Xbox allows you to have up to 36 months prepaid on your account. If you buy three 1-year subscriptions, do not turn on recurring billing while redeeming the codes (this will add a free additional month which won’t allow you to add the last code). Then you can pay $1 to upgrade all of that to Game Pass Ultimate. Congratulations. You just paid super cheap for three years of access to Xbox Game Pass’ expansive library—something that would normally cost you $15 per month. You’ve beat the system. Good job. Take note though that this will only work if you are not already subscribed to Game Pass Ultimate.
