Posted on December 20, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Games, Xbox with 652 Comments

UPDATE 3: I’ve only heard from some of the winners. I will give it another couple of days, but at some point I will need to select other winners if I don’t hear back. Also, the Office 365 giveaway will today (again for 24 hours) and the hardware giveaway will be Friday. —Paul

UPDATE 2: I have selected and emailed the winners.

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. I will randomly select the winners and contact them via email today. Thanks! —Paul


As you may know, Microsoft’s Chris Capossela has again graciously donated some Microsoft hardware devices and software product keys for us to give away. Here’s the first round, for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate product keys.

Please read this carefully.

Today’s giveaway includes 10 Xbox Game Pass Ultimate product keys, which I will email to the winners.

The giveaway is open from the time of this article’s publication until 9 am ET tomorrow, Saturday, December 21.

For a chance to win a product key, please leave one comment to this post. In the past, we asked for everyone to use the same phrase, but that apparently clogs up the spam filter. So, reply with any text of your choosing. But PLEASE leave only one comment per person.

(We will have two more giveaways in the near future, for 10 Office 365 Home product keys and 6 Surface PCs. You can enter each giveaway once and it is technically possible to win more than one giveaway.)

When I close the giveaway tomorrow morning, I will use a random number generator to choose the 10 winners. I will then email the winners to make sure their email addresses are correct. And then I will email them the codes and list the Thurrott.com usernames of the winners here.

I will be monitoring our spam filter to make sure that all the comments get through. But if you do experience any technical issues, please do not comment here or email me directly. Instead, please email [email protected].

Thanks, and good luck!
