On the surface level, Game Pass Ultimate seems like an unbeatable value, giving you access to 100+ games on both Xbox and PC, but there are some annoyances and negatives too. Firstly, there isn’t a unified way to navigate through all of your Game Pass content. Xbox games are generally handled through the Game Pass store on your Xbox. PC games are handed in the Microsoft store app and they’re often slightly buggy or lacking in terms of control customization, graphics settings, etc. Xbox Gold gives you some free games, but you need to go through a separate process to add them to your account. Games obtained through Games with Gold work a bit differently than Game Pass in the sense that they will always be available to play (they won’t ever leave the service), with the Xbox 360 titles being yours to keep no matter what and the Xbox One titles requiring an active subscription.
*** Update 10/15/2020 ***
Microsoft has been refining the Game Pass experience since I first wrote this review. It is now easier to navigate and browse Game Pass content on both Xbox and PC. Claiming Games with Gold on Xbox no longer requires you to go through the motions of buying the game at $0.00 ~ you can just add it to your account directly. For PC, the Xbox app has been updated so that you can directly browse Game Pass content separately from the Store app. I've tried a few of the "newer" offerings such as MechWarrior 5 and Outer Worlds, and they have a respectable amount of customization for graphics settings, etc. Overall, Game Pass is becoming better and better.
The second negative is that games are constantly being added and removed, though they will give you a 30 day notice before doing so. If you’re more of a casual gamer, it might not be enough time to finish the titles and if you don’t pay attention to the Xbox news channels, you might not even know a game has been removed until it fails to start. Game Pass usually doesn’t contain the add-on content, so if you bought DLC for a Game Pass title that got removed, you won’t be able to play unless you get the main game again, either in digital or physical form.
With respect to this digital code purchase on Amazon, I think it’s pretty easy. The code shows up in your email box (associated with your Amazon account) after you finish checking out. If you have any promo codes such as buy-one-get-one-free, they will also show up in your mailbox. You can redeem multiple 3-month (or whatever) pre-paid memberships and they will stack up. Personally, I go to the Microsoft Accounts site and enter these codes from the subscription management area. In the case that you’ve set up a credit card for reoccurring billing, these pre-paid membership codes will basically push your billing date back.
I've only bought codes like Xbox Live or Microsoft Office directly from Amazon, and I haven't had any issues so far.
