I believe you have to be an existing subscriber for this to work.

If you already are Mantis get on the horn to Microsoft CS and see if they can sort it before waving goodbye to £20.
I suspect it may be because I'm only subbed as a Game Pass PC account and not the Ultimate one. Or it just glitched out and didn't load the conversion notification when I pasted my code in.

I haven't chased it up yet.

Microsoft online chat is surprisingly good. As I suspected, it was because I'm only subbed to PC Game Pass at the moment. It didn't occur to me that redeeming the code might not automatically convert me to Ultimate, to be honest I couldn't even remember which one I was paying for at the time.

The good news is that if you upgrade your subscription to Ultimate then any EA Play subs sat on your account automatically convert. So I paid up for the month and now it's kicked in and given me Ultimate until October.
