Although the service itself is great, it's no secret that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate deals are often pricey. A three-month membership will set you back $40 / £30, for example. However, this cool workaround lets you get four months for a lot less: buy an annual EA Play subscription for a discounted $26.99 / £18.99 at CD Keys and you can redeem it on your console for four months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. That essentially saves you $10 / £10 in the process.

Because you can stack Xbox Game Pass Ultimate deals, this also means you can quickly top up for a year-long membership at a fraction of the cost. To be precise, you can get three EA Play codes one after the other for $81 / £57 in total and then redeem them all for 12 months of Game Pass. That's a good amount less than the $160 / £120 it would cost you in equivalent three-month Ultimate cards. 

Happily, these offers are all digital as well. That means you don't need to worry about waiting for delivery - the codes appear in your inbox almost straight away.
