    Default Xbox Game Pass

    Has anyone successfully purchased 6 month Xbox Game Pass from Amazon and activated it? I'm hearing it needs to activated via a VPN.
    Nothing....

    Yes you need to hook up a VPN to activate it.

    Don't see why Windscribe or Tunnelbear and the like wouldn't work as you don't need a special country to connect from.

    Can even try Opera Browser VPN.

    Yeah 6 month ones no problem.

    Only things that donít stack are the trial 1 month accounts.

    Can you confirm it works via VPN, before I pull the trigger?

    OK I can confirm the code from Amazon works when using a VPN.

    I installed Tunnelbear chrome extension, turned it on (defaults to USA), copied code from email and applied. My account says I have Game Pass until 12/14/2018 so all seems good.

    Will test on Xbox One X later but shouldn't have any problems.
