    <p>They've really been scrapping the bottom of the barrel lately on Games with Gold.</p>

    <p>How much longer is this going to go on for? It just seems odd considering how cheap game pass is that people would continue to pay only for Gold.</p>

      <blockquote><a href="#580792"><em>In reply to remc86007:</em></a><em> I'm curious to as I'm one of those still paying for Gold which I'm paying for quarterly. I still get ads telling me to upgrade for a dollar. I'm curious though as if I can change my subscription to a year of Gold to save more money then switch to Game Pass Ultimate for a dollar and still get the discount.</em></blockquote><p><br></p>

        <blockquote><em><a href="#580798">In reply to Thretosix:</a></em></blockquote><p>You should be able to do this, a few months ago I topped up my live gold balance to 3 years and then converted it to Game Pass Ultimate for £1. So got 3 years of ultimate, don't need to renew til 2023.</p>
