Deal Alert: Here’s How to Get Free Paramount+

All products and services featured are independently chosen by editors. However, Billboard may receive a commission on orders placed through its retail links, and the retailer may receive certain auditable data for accounting purposes.

Thinking about joining Paramount+? A free trial is the best way to test out a streaming platform to see if it’s a good fit — and Walmart is allowing customers to join the platform at no extra cost.

Shoppers can receive a free subscription to Paramount+ included with any Walmart+ subscription, the retail giant announced last September. A Walmart+ subscription is $12.95 a month (or $98 for the annual plan) after a 30-day free trial and unlocks free access to the Paramount+ Essential plan.

Not interested in subscribing to Walmart+? There are other ways to go about getting a free trial to Paramount+. One of the easier options would be to go directly through the platform. Right now, Paramount+ is offering a 30-day free trial at sign up (up from a week free).

Read on for more details on the extended free trial and price increases.

How to Get a 30-Day Free Trial to Paramount+

Landing a 30-day free trial to Paramount+ is easier than you think. But first, let’s talk pricing.

Did Paramount+ raise its prices? Yes. Now that Paramount+ and Showtime have merged, you’ll have to pay a bit more to join — but not very much. The Paramount+ Essential Plan, which gives you access to tons of TV shows and movies with limited commercials, increased a dollar to $5.99/month (or $59.99/year). The ad-free plan got a small price bump as well to $11.99/month, but it now includes Showtime, along with everything in the Essential Plan and access to your local CBS station.

After the free trial ends, your plan will automatically renew at the regular rate, but you can cancel anytime.

More Ways to Save With Paramount+

Can you still get a year free Paramount+ on T-Mobile? Unfortunately, T-Mobile’s “Paramount+ On Us” offer is no more. Even though you can’t land a year free through T-Mobile and Sprint wireless plans, T-Mobile Home Internet and T-Mobile for Business plans, you can still sign up for Paramount+ through your T-Mobile of Sprint account.

Want more ways to save? Paramount+ with Showtime is a good deal on its own because it gives you more streaming options for one low price, but the streamer offers a student discount as well. Eligible students will receive a 25% off the Essential monthly plan. Click here for more details.
