You can do that right here - just keep in mind that codes for the bonus 3-months will be delivered to your email address within 10 business days.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds would be a great way to break in your new Xbox Live Gold membership, and the Xbox One S PUBG bundle comes with an additional month of membership along with a 1-month trial of Xbox Game Pass. Game Pass is also looking pretty fantastic lately after the announcement that all of Microsoft’s first-party games will be available on the service straight away - starting with Sea of Thieves. Game Pass runs $9.99 a month, and could very well become the Netflix of games we all dream of.
