Friends have been asking me to renew my gold since they want to play Halo and sea of thieve. Been looking this last month but firstly, it seems no store even sells 1 year gold card, and secondly, I never see it on sale. Do 1 year gold card ever go on sale like PSN does?

Used to, but Microsoft pushes Gamepass now, Ultimate includes Gold for online.

Try cdkeys.

Also try accumulating MS reward points. I used to pay for my XBL Gold sub(before upgrading to Gamepass Ultimate) with just gift cards that I purchased using MS Reward points.

If you can find Gold anywhere, stock on that first.
1 - It is cheaper
2 - When you get GamePass Ultimate, any Gold time on your account is converted to the same amount of GamePass. I grabbed the $1 for 3 months of GamePass Ultimate, got a bit over 6 months total since I had Gold already.

If you have a Costco membership, 2 years of gold is $95
Let's get down to brass tacks. How much for the ape?

Last time I saw it go on sale was on Black Friday. That's when i bought 3 years. I highly highly doubt you'll be able to get it for less than $60 right now. This is because everyone wants it right now because you can convert it to Game Pass Ultimate. If you find it for $60, I suggest not hesitating and buy it because I'm not sure if stores are getting restocked on those anymore. I know that Microsoft itself is not selling $60 per year anymore on Microsoft.com.

No, what you should grab is 3 12 month Xbox Live Gold codes for $60 each. Or buy 2 years at Costco like JohnEtrav mentioned if you are a member there, and another year elsewhere. You can get those at Cdkeys, Newegg, Amazon, Walmart, and places like that. You then go to the web page where you can convert that to Game Pass Ultimate for $1-$15. After that you will have access to around 300 games on console and pc for the next 3 years. Trust me, once you do this you'll never go back to non Game Pass Ultimate existence. Also keep in mind that this will allow you to play Halo Infinite when it launches, Hellblade, and whatever else is coming to Game Pass Ultimate.
