  1. No i did not get any issues. That is my subscription till 2024 in the pic. I was using credit card though. The block happens as a security measure from bank side but i didn't get any. About the email i'm not sure. For safety i email to my another email but you don't even need to get the email as you can get the code from your order history. So using same account might work too.
  2. I had been reading about using XBOX Gold codes to recharge upto 3 years and then activating the trial which converts your gold subscription to ultimate at 1:1 ratio. But was not sure how to do it in India as we can't buy codes online from resellers like Amazon, Flipkart etc. But i found a way around it by gifting the Gold codes to myself and redeeming those to add upto 3 years (36 months) to Gold plan. By gifting you get 6 months for Rs 1,238 (Rs 1,049 + 18%) compared to subscription per month Rs. 577 (489 + 18%). As a gift you get the same for Rs. 206 compared to Rs. 577 per month subscription. Its ridiculous really! You can do this to get 6+3 upto 36+3 months depending on your choice. IMPORTANT: You should not have activated the Rs. 50 trial of 3 months for Ultimate. This only works before you have activated the trial and don't have an active Ultimate subscription already. If you do this with Ultimate sub already you will get reduced ratio from your gold codes. So here the the steps to get upto 36 months of Gamepass Ultimate: You need to make/have Microsoft account that you want to use for Gamepass and/or use with Xbox: https://account.microsoft.com/account Visit XBOX Gold webpage: https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/p/xbox-live-gold/CFQ7TTC0K5DJ/000C?activetab=pivot:gamesanddealstab Select 'Buy as Gift" as shown: Complete the process by emailing yourself the code and making the payment. Now you can do this 5 more times (for total 6) to get upto 36 months Gold subscription. Upto you how many months for Ultimate you want to get for this price. The maximum is 36 months. Go to: https://account.microsoft.com/billing/orders/ Here you can see all your purchases. For each gift you bought you can view the gift code like this: Go to: https://redeem.microsoft.com/ and redeem each of the codes you bought. Now you can convert all of those months to Gamepass Ultimate. Visit: https://www.xbox.com/en-IN/xbox-game-pass#join Select like below to activate 3 month Ultimate trial for Rs. 50. You can also do this from XBOX app on PC or from XBOX console (can't test as i dont have it): Complete the process and make the payment. Now you can see this work in your subscriptions: https://account.microsoft.com/services/ Tip: Turn off recurring billing so you don't get surprised with charges whenever your subscription ends. Click manage from the pic above and then do this: Congrats you got upto 3 years of Gamepass Ultimate for Rs. 206/month compared to Rs. 805/month on top of the 3 months for Rs. 50.
  3. For shoes, i have bought many from adidas.co.in website directly as some they have great discounts than other sites. Next is Myntra as they have much better options than Amazon.
  4. Horizon Zero Dawn PC - 9/10 Completed this yesterday and didn't think i would enjoy it this much. Finished the game + dlc on Hard, took about 55 hours and it never felt like a chore. Didn't have to grind or anything as you pretty much explore it all going for the collectibles and doing all quests. Actually liked the story as well and immediately checked out Forbidden West trailer. Sucks it will be PS5 only at first. This is why love PC games as you can play these with all their beautiful glory (even the video below doesn't do full justice). Made a video of two mech-TRex's fighting! What's not to love.
