The cost of streaming service subscriptions to cover all of your watching and listening needs can add up quickly, especially if you don’t take advantage of free trials and discounts when they come along. While it’s true that most streaming services offered up their best deals for Cyber Monday—and some of those promos have now expired—you can still access some solid savings from several of the most popular services.
Spotify: Three months of “Premium”
From now until Dec. 31, Spotify is offering three free months of its “Individual Premium plan”—normally $9.99 per month—to new users and current free plan subscribers. If you’ve had a Premium subscription before, you can sign up again and pay $9.99 for three months.
Paramount+: One-month trial
Paramount+ is offering an extended one-month free trial of either its Essentials (with ads) or Peak plan (ad-free) to new subscribers until Jan. 3. You’ll pay $4.99 or $9.99, respectively, after the trial ends. Paramount+ is the home of CBS content, including live TV and sports, as well as channels like Comedy Central and BET. Use the code PEAKSALE if prompted.
G/O Media may get a commission
Apple Music: Six months of service
Apple Music’s standard free trial lasts three months, but if you sign up through Best Buy, you can get six months of listening at no cost. The deal is available for new subscribers only, and you have to sign up for a BestBuy.com account to access it.
Apple TV+: Three-month trial
Best Buy also has a three-month-free subscription to Apple TV+ for new subscribers. Again, you’ll have to create a BestBuy.com account to take advantage of the promo.
Disney+: Six months with Amazon Music Unlimited
New Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers get a 2-for-1 deal, with free access to Disney+ for six months ($7.99 per month after that). Current and past Amazon Music Unlimited customers are eligible for three free months of Disney+, but only if they don’t already have a Disney+ subscription.
Amazon Music Unlimited: Three-month trial for families
Families interested in Amazon Music Unlimited can get three months of free access for up to six people. Rates jump to $14.99 at the end of the trial period.
YouTube TV: 14-day trial plus first-month discount
New subscribers to YouTube TV, which comes with more than 85 channels of live content, currently get 14 days of free access followed by $50 off the first month, bringing the total for the first six weeks to just $14.99.
