Christmas is almost upon us and, this time of year, it’s all about being surrounded by loved ones, sharing laughter, joy, and gifts meant to rejuvenate the soul.

And since we were talking about gifts, wait until you find out what Microsoft is surprising its most loyal customers with.

Xbox owners that have a long history with the company, more exactly, long-time subscribers to the premium services, are about to a pretty nice present.

Some Xbox Gold members are being rewarded by Microsoft

It appears that the Redmond-based tech giant is already in holiday mood and has entered the holiday gift-giving vibes.

A select group of Xbox Live Gold members is reporting that they have received messages from Xbox congratulating them on being All-Star Gold members.

But that’s not all, because paired with this message is a code to redeem 5 free months of Xbox Game Pass. This is quite a substantial gift, considering we’re talking about almost half of year of subscription.

Those that do receive the message from Microsoft will be notified that their remaining Gold time will carry over on a 1:1 basis.

To clarify, if you have 12 months left on their Gold subscription, they will have a total of 17 months of Game Pass Ultimate after redeeming the code.

Everyone was shocked by the message and really cautious at first, as there has been speculation that this message could be an ingenious scam.

Some of the users that received this present and claimed it say that everything seems to be working just fine, so there’s no need to actually worry.

However, it seems that this is a legit message, sent directly from Microsoft, so anyone can calm down and enjoy their presents.
