Deals: Disney+ Offering New and Returning Customers Discounted First Month at $1.99

Today is Disney+ Day, and to mark the occasion Disney has introduced a new discount on its popular streaming service. New and eligible returning Disney+ subscribers can get Disney+ for $1.99 for one month, after which the service will return to $7.99 per month.

To be an "eligible" returning Disney+ customer, you need to have no current active subscription with the streaming service and be 18 years or older. Once your first month ends, Disney+ will auto-renew at $7.99 per month unless you cancel beforehand.

To get the deal, create a Disney+ account or sign into your old one and accept the Disney+ Subscriber Agreement, then accept the monthly offer. This promotion will last until 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on September 19.

It's also worth noting that this $7.99 per month ad-free Disney+ plan will be increasing in price to $10.99 per month on December 8, 2022. This is because the company will introduce a new ad-supported tier available for the $7.99 per month price point in December.

So, if you sign up for the Disney+ Day deal and afterwards decide to keep the service, remember that in a few months the $7.99 per month price will be increasing by $3 before the end of the year. You can also lock in an annual plan at the current price before the price increase in December.

Thats 2 dollars worse than a free trial.
Yes, but is there a reason beyond "$2 is 2 more than free"? If you're concerned about forgetting to cancel in time, you can just cancel ASAP, it'll cancel when the billing month ends, but you'll still get access until then.

I went ahead and purchased every Disney movie worth owning physically, so this couldn't be a bigger waste of money for me. Of course, even if you didn't own any of the movies, in the long run, you'd still be better off buying them second hand off Ebay or something than having Disney syphon money out of your bank account each month. Renting is a fool's game. Always has been, always will be. Buy the things you love. Don't rent.

Disney+ goes up in price on Dec. 8th. Hulu & D+ & ESPN+ bundles (both Hulu ad-free and w-ads) will remain the same. Disney+ will have the option to do ad-free on an annual basis (so $110/yr), but oddly enough, the newly minted ad tier won't have such an option.
