Greetings, Arsians! Dealmaster is back again with a new round of deals and price drops. Today's list is oversubscribed by a fast PSA for those who subscribe to a Verizon unlimited data plan or plan to subscribe to a Fios home internet plan: If you are at all interested in the new streaming + service Disney, you can get a 1
Now, as is often the case with promotions for mobile operators, there are some nice presses to sort through. To get the free year of service, you must subscribe to one of the carrier's Verizon Unlimited, Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited, Over Unlimited, Get More Unlimited, Do More Unlimited, Pay More Unlimited, or Start Unlimited plans. (If you're wondering that Verizon has had these many unlimited plans, many of which aren't actually unlimited, you're not alone.) Both new and existing subscribers are eligible; Verizon has options on the promo page for existing subscribers who want to switch to an unlimited plan and those who want to move from another carrier.
The offer is also available to Verizon Fio's home users and a handful of people who can access the 5G home plan, but only if you are a new subscriber, not if you have currently paid for one of these services. For Fios users, you need a standalone Internet plan with at least 50/50 Mbps service, a two-year "Triple Play" package, or a 2-year Internet + TV "Double Play" package. Either way, all of this you signed up for Disney + through Verizon, not Disney.
Some things worth noting: it is possible to redeem the offer via the Internet or operator's mobile app and Verizon says that the offer is not available for prepaid or business plan customers of any kind. The email address you use to sign up for the promo with Verizon cannot already be used by an active Disney + account. However, if you qualify for the free 12 months, but have already purchased a Disney + subscription in advance, the carrier says that the promotion will not replace your existing purchase. instead, your purchase will only be paused and you can use it when the 12 months from this promotional offer is spent. (That said, we would still advise you to keep an eye on your account and your registered email address to make sure everything is properly managed.)
If you are both Verizon Wireless and a new Fios user, you can technically redeem the campaign twice with separate email addresses and get two years with Disney +, since Verizon treats the two services as different accounts. If you did not purchase an annual or multi-year Disney + subscription before redeeming the offer, Verizon will automatically renew your Disney + service for $ 7 a month at the end of the promotional period. And the carrier says that the entire campaign will be available until June 1, 2020.
Do you have all that? If you're not interested in Verizon, or you just want to wait until Disney + sorts through the many technical issues it has at launch, we also have deals on Kindle Unlimited subscriptions, robot vacuum, USB-C chargers, gaming laptops and more. Take a look at the entire list below.
