"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You have bought Xbox Live for 12 months.  
With this you will be offered 2 Xbox One and 2 Xbox 360 free games a month but you have to "purchase" them for them to remain in your games catalogue.

This will not entitle you to access Game Pass.  You need a separate Game Pass Membership for that.  You can get a 2 weeks free Game Pass membership from

Any games that are part of Game Pass are in effect "rented" during the lifetime of your membership.
