Update: Unfortunately, this deal has now expired. You can always top up with 3 months Xbox Game Pass Ultimate time at CD Keys for $23.79 or Amazon US for $44.99, though we imagine this offer will come around again soon enough.

If your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription is about to expire – or you’re interested in joining the service for the first time – you can save 50 per cent off a six month membership at Best Buy.

In what’s becoming a very familiar deal, if you buy a three month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, you’ll get another three months free. This time around, though, it looks like the offer is only available for today only. Best stock up on some membership time while you can, then!

For those who haven’t heard, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is Microsoft’s top-end subscription service for those who play games on Xbox One and PC. With it, you get access to a rolling library of over 100 games to download and play as part of your membership. This includes all first-party games on the day of release, such as Gears Tactics and the upcoming Minecraft Dungeons. On top of that, it also includes your Xbox Live Gold membership so you can play online with friends.

Over the last few months, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate has established itself as one of the best deals in gaming out there. Take a look right now, for example. You can play the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2, Streets of Rage 4, and Ori and the Will of The Wisps as part of your membership. Not bad at all!

And Microsoft looks set to continue support Xbox Game Pass Ultimate with the Xbox Series X. Many upcoming games will be available on the service. That’s alongside Smart Delivery, which will allow you to upgrade the Xbox One games you own to their Xbox Series X versions for free.

If now’s not the time for you to renew, do keep an eye on Jelly Deals where we’ll always be bringing you the best Xbox Game Pass Ultimate deal. Is storage becoming an issue?
