Save 25% On Xbox Game Pass Ultimate For A Limited Time

Target has a pretty sweet Game Pass deal that gets even better if you buy multiples.


Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offers great value even at its $17 per month list price, but Target's current offer for three-month subscriptions makes the service even more enticing. You can get a three-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for only $37.49.

This represents a 25% discount off the normal $45 list price. It's unclear when this promotion ends, so you should scoop it up soon if interested. If you only game on PC, three-month codes for PC Game Pass are on sale for $22.49 (down from $30).

Your unlock code will be sent via email. Target says codes are "usually sent within four hours," though in our experience it's often faster than that. It's worth noting that you can transfer the subscription to a different email account after purchase. So if you're looking for a quick and easy holiday gift, Game Pass Ultimate is a good option. Even if the person you buy it for already has Game Pass, the subscription will simply replace their monthly payment for three months.

It's also worth mentioning that you can stack up to 36 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. That means you could buy and enter 12 of these three-month codes. Three months of Game Pass paid monthly costs $51, so you're saving about $14 overall with this prepaid method. The savings only get better the more you buy. Paying by the month normally costs $204 for a year, whereas four of these codes would knock that price down to $150. That's a pretty sweet deal.

Alternatively, Target is selling one-month subscriptions for $12.74 (down from $17). If you're a new member or have an expired membership, the better deal for a month of Game Pass Ultimate is at StackCommerce. You can get a one-month code for $8 . The caveat here is that these particular codes aren't stackable and have to be redeemed within 30 days, so you can only buy one. And remember, this $8 deal is only for new members and those who previously subscribed.

Game Pass Ultimate lets you instantly access hundreds of Xbox and PC games. Every first-party Microsoft title is added to the service on day one, including this year's marquee Xbox game, Starfield. New games are added (and removed) each month. November brought a handful of notable games to the service, including Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, Persona 5 Tactica, and Wild Hearts.

The Ultimate tier of Game Pass has some other nice benefits, too. Game Pass Core, which grants access to online multiplayer, and PC Game Pass are baked into the subscription. You also get EA Play, which has some cool perks like early access trials for new EA Sports games and a big library of recent and classic EA games. Plus, Game Pass Ultimate includes Xbox Cloud Gaming. Many games in the library support cloud streaming, so you can play your games on your smartphone or tablet when away from your Xbox.
