IHOP’s rewards program adds some new perks for members, including the ability to trade in reward coins for a free month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate has been received well by gamers, offering players an affordable way to try out multiple games for one flat fee per month. With new games coming and going from the program all the time, players can access a wide variety of titles without having to splurge on every single one of them.
That said, there are times when players can get discounts on Xbox Game Pass, which makes it an even better deal. Now, the IHOP restaurant chain is partnering with Xbox to bring players a variety of Xbox freebies, including a month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
The new partnership between the International House of Pancakes and Xbox is going on now. IHOP offers a loyalty rewards program that’s free to join where members can earn so-called PanCoins by making purchases. After signing up for the program, gamers can exchange their rewards for one month of free Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, a copy of the game Grounded, or a Forza Horizon 5 Add-On bundle offering a variety of perks.
At the moment, the cost of the three perks are as follows. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs 10 PanCoins, while Grounded and Forza Horizon 5‘s Add-On pack are 40 PanCoins each. Players can earn one PanCoin for every $5 USD spent at IHOP. While it’s more affordable to simply buy Xbox Game Pass Ultimate outright, anyone who frequents IHOP or is just craving a big breakfast in the near future can earn enough PanCoins to try out Xbox Game Pass at no extra cost.
Unfortunately for current subscribers of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, this deal is only available for newcomers to the service. The code can be redeemed for one free month’s trial, which will then continue at the standard cost once the month has ended. Codes are valid through January of 2023, though the page doesn’t state how long the reward can be redeemed.
Xbox Game Pass is constantly tweaking its offerings, and a new Game Pass tier intended for family and friends may be on the way in the near future. One of the major perks of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is that many recent releases have arrived on the service on day one of their release, meaning players don’t have to pay full price to play the games. August’s Xbox Game Pass titles included major hitters like Death Stranding, and day one title Midnight Fight Express.
