    What happens to my xbox live gold account AFTER the Game Pass Ultimate expires?


    I see the deal to upgrade my gold to Game Pass Ultimate for $1. Sounds great, but reading the

    Game Pass Ultimate page
    it talks about converting my account and I quote:

    "Note: Purchase of Ultimate plan automatically upgrades your existing Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass membership(s) to Ultimate at a conversion ratio each based on days remaining. Learn how this works at www.xbox.com/gamepass. Future code redemptions
    are also subject to a conversion ratio. Conversion ratio subject to change.
    All conversions to Ultimate are final: Once converted, you cannot re-convert your Ultimate membership back to a previous membership.
    Maximum 36 months of redeemed Ultimate per account at a time, including any converted time from Xbox Live Gold and/or
    Xbox Game Pass (for PC or console)."


    Is the BOLD sentence above specifically ONLY DURING THE SUBSCRIPTION of Ultimate, or is this for the rest of the life of this account? I am concerned about what happens after the Ultimate sub expires.

    After Ultimate expires, for example, if I go and purchase a 12 month subscription for just xbox live gold, do I actually get 12 months of live gold, or will I FOREVER have my account be an Ultimate subscription account and that 12 month live gold purchase
    be converted to the Game Pass Ultimate conversion ratio for life?

    I need an official response, not a guess what might happen.

    Thank you.

    :)

    What happens to my prepaid months of Xbox Live Gold and/or Xbox Game Pass when I sign up for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate?

    When you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, we’ll apply any prepaid time you have on Xbox Live Gold and/or Xbox Game Pass toward the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate plan, up to a maximum of 36 months. Prepaid time conversion rates are subject to change.

    TXbox Ultimate Game Pass 1-month sub is $1 on XBL, includes Game Pass for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Live Gold. Purchasing the $1 plan will upgrade your existing Xbox Live Gold/Game Pass memberships to Ultimate and combines both subscription months as Ultimate

    I can't put my finger on the conversion rate data, at the moment, but it's approximately 3:1 Gold to Xbox Ultimate, if I recall correctly.

    Xbox game pass gratis?! (Xbox game pass free?!)

    i might have a clue on what happened here,

    when i go to Services & subscriptions' page, on my microsoft account, below the Xbox Live Gold's subscription section, it says:

    Enjoy the benefits of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold Upgrade to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

    so maybe my xbox live gold subscription is turned into a Gold + Game pass subscription, but how? I haven't done anything...

    I've had a look at the Gold to UGP conversion rates. You would not receive any of your Gold membership time back at all. What you'd need to do is allow you UGP membership to run out, cancel just before it does and then buy a new Gold subscription. Conversion
    rate isn't great either. 12 months Gold only gets you 4 months UGP.

    However, your Gold purchases will not be converted to GPU for life. UGP is a separate subscription from the Game Pass and Gold. So you still have a choice with which you choose. Microsoft obviously want to get more people on the UGP by offering it at a lower
    rate than if you bought Gold and Game Pass separately.

    My refund of the game pass canceled my xbox live gold subscribtion

    Hey there FlyJonat,

    When you update to the Game Pass any time you had on active Gold or Game Pass subscription would be cancelled and any remaining time would be converted to time for the Ultimate subscription.

    What happens to my Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass memberships once i upgrade to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate?

    A purchase of Game Pass Ultimate automatically upgrades your existing Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass memberships to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

    So it seems that when you cancelled your Ultimate subscription this cancelled all the time that had been added to it. I would advise that you
    Contact Xbox Support so that they may take a look at your account and provide further assistance.

    I hope this helps.

    Problem with the association between Gold and Game Pass Ultimate.

    Unfortunately you would have to purchase gold again if that is what you want. Before purchasing the promotion, you are warned that whatever gold or regular game pass you have on your account will be converted to Ultimate Game Pass and cannot be converted
    back.

    Xbox Game Pass Ultimate:

    Use your active Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership to play games on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate includes Xbox Game Pass for Console, Xbox Game Pass for PC, Xbox Live Gold and additional benefits. Note: Purchase of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
    automatically upgrades your existing Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass membership(s) to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at a conversion ratio each based on days remaining. Learn how this works at www.xbox.com/gamepass. Future code redemptions are also subject to a
    conversion ratio. Conversion ratio subject to change. All conversions to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate are final: Once converted, you cannot re-convert your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership back to a previous membership. Maximum 36 months of redeemed Xbox Game
    Pass Ultimate per account at a time, including any converted time from Xbox Live Gold and/or Xbox Game Pass (for PC or console).
