Target Memorial Day sales include this huge discount on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

Target Memorial Day sales include this huge discount on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

Target’s Memorial Day sale now includes one of the best gaming deals of the year, with this big discount on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. You can save offline $15 for a 3-month code, bringing the price down from $49.99 to $34.99. In addition, one-month codes are Discounted to $11.89. Target’s price drop is a bigger discount than Woot’s previous best offer and the lowest price for Game Pass Ultimate in a while.

Discounts on Game Pass can be inconsistent, and even major shopping events like Prime Day or Black Friday don’t always offer great deals on Xbox’s main subscription service. As prices are likely to rise in the future, taking advantage of deep discounts like these is becoming increasingly noticeable.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate 3-Month Subscription (Digital)

Stackable digital tokens for up to 36 months.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (digital) subscription

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate 1-month subscription (digital)

Stackable digital tokens for up to 36 months.

The maximum Game Pass stacking period is three years (36 months). The total purchase of twelve tokens for 3 months is $418.88, which may seem like a lot. However, considering the MSRP for Game Pass Ultimate is $16.99 per month (for a total of $611.64 for 36 months), you can save $192.76 over three years by investing now. You can save more if there is a price increase in the future.

You can save even more as you bundle your membership, e.g Target Circle cardholders get an additional 5% off (see here). Additionally, the Target Circle Card offers a $50 credit when you open a reloadable account and spend $50, which you can use toward this Game Pass deal. Alternatively, you can get $50 off when approved for your Target Circle debit or credit card. This is definitely worth considering to maximize your savings.

When do Memorial Day sales start in 2024?

Memorial Day always falls on the last Monday in May, and in 2024, it will be celebrated on May 27. However, Memorial Day sales start much earlier. Many retailers start their sales before the weekend starts, with the best discounts available long before Monday. In fact, many Memorial Day sales are already in place right now, as you can see.

The retailer’s best Memorial Day sales are live now

Although there is no specific end date for Memorial Day sales, many discounts will likely end the day after Memorial Day. However, some sales will extend beyond that. For example, the Best Buy Memorial Day hardware sale runs through June 5, and the Adidas Summer Sale runs through June 28. If you want to shop Memorial Day sales before the weekend, we’ve rounded up some of the best sales already out there below.

Prime Day vs. Memorial Day sales

If you’re wondering whether you should shop the Memorial Day sale or wait for Amazon Prime Day in July, the answer depends on what you want to buy. If you’re looking to buy a new refrigerator, lawn mower, or mattress, the Memorial Day sales are a good time to do so. But if you’re hoping to pick up a new iPad or a pair of good headphones at a discount, you’ll probably want to wait until the Prime Day sales to make that purchase. In general, Memorial Day sales tend to be on par with Prime Day and Black Friday for a wide range of categories.

Game Pass has been under some heat since Microsoft decided to shut down studios like Tango Gameworks and Arkane Austin. For example, larger third-party developers have also complained that Game Pass is eating into retail sales — concerns that Microsoft Admitted last year was founded.

It’s something to consider when purchasing more time on the service. However, Game Pass is still one of the best offers in gaming, so if you use it often, this deal could be a good opportunity to accumulate some membership time at a discounted price.

According to a new report from The Wall Street Journal, Microsoft will also soon announce its intention to launch Call of Duty Black Ops 6 directly on Game Pass. The Wall Street Journal reports that Microsoft will announce the plans during its Xbox showcase event in June.
