If you assign a pass to a Microsoft ID that has been used with a Pass before, it will render the pass unusable.  Passes can only be used once per MSID and if you have already assigned it to an account, you won’t be able to reuse that code on a different account that has not previously been associated with an Azure pass ID.
    2. Azure Passes cannot be redeemed on accounts that are linked to an Enterprise Agreement (EA) subscription.
    3. Azure passes cannot be used on accounts where any subscription to any 3rd party service has been setup – the credits cannot be used for 3rd party payments
