Planning on Getting Disney+? Save Big With This Special Offer

At this point, it’s really no secret that I am a huge Disney nerd. Thus, I’m counting down the days until Disney+ — the company’s ever-expanding  upcoming streaming service — debuts on November 12th. In fact, I already signed-up for the service while attending this past weekend’s D23 Expo. However, the reason for that pre-launch registration wasn’t just my excitement for all of the new Marvel shows, just-announced Lizzie McGuire reboot, and library of classic films that will be offered but was also thanks to the special they offered at the Expo, giving you three years of the service for just $140.97 (plus tax where applicable). Now, that same deal is being extended to those who weren’t at the event, making a great opportunity for those who want to save some money on their subscription.

Right now, members of Disney’s official fan club, D23, can get $23 per year off of a three-year subscription. That takes the price down from the regular $69.99 a year to $46.99 — which works out to less than $4 per month! But here’s the kicker: this offer also applies to General D23 members, meaning you can join the club for free and proceed to sign-up for Disney+ with this deal.

By the way, if this sounds up your alley, you’ll probably want to act fast. That’s because the special is only available to those who join D23 before 11:59 p.m. on September 1st. I should also note that this three-year subscription fee will all be taken at once. And, as I mentioned, tax may apply depending on where you live (apparently Florida, some cities in California, and elsewhere tax streaming services while my home in Missouri seemingly does not).

The only downside to this promo is that it’s unclear if you’ll then be able to upgrade your subscription to the bundle offering Disney has previously announced. While Disney+ will retail at $6.99 a month, the $12.99 package will also include ESPN+ and ad-supported Hulu. Thus, if having those additional services is a big deal for you, you may be better off holding out for that.

Of course, if you can live without Disney+, more power to you. Despite my obvious enthusiasm, I’m really not here just to shill for my beloved Disney or push their services on those who’d be just fine without it. That said, if you are considering subscribing anyway — and perhaps even opting for Disney+ over other options like Netflix — this current three-year promotional offer could save you a nice little chunk of change ($69 to be exact). Now can November 12th arrive a little faster, please?

Southwest Has Eliminated Expiration Dates for Flight Credits

I'll admit that, historically, I've not been a huge fan of flying Southwest. This distaste stems pretty much exclusively from their boarding system and the fact that you don't have an assigned seat ahead of time. As someone who's grown accustomed to reserving a seat at the movies for years,...
