Disney Plus Black Friday Deal: How to Save up to 20% on a Subscription Using Gift Card Trick

Disney+ has offered several ways to get a discount on a subscription, such as a free year for Verizon customers and a bundle with ESPN and Hulu. This Black Friday, there is another way potential subscribers can save money on the new streaming service.

Although Disney+ does not have a specific Black Friday deal of its own, a number of savvy savers have highlighted how you can use Amazon or Best Buy Black Friday deals to get 20% off of a Disney+ subscription.

To do this, customers have to take advantage of these online store's deals on iTunes gift cards, and then use these giftcards to pay for your subscription.

Best Buy, for example, is offering $100 iTunes gift cards for $80 (20%), while Amazon has $50 for $42.50, a 16% discount. If Disney+ subscribers sign up to the service through Apple TV, it allows customers to sign up using their iTunes accounts, meaning that they can pre-pay for a year of the service with their discounted gift cards. As reported by The Streamable, this reduces the cost of a year of Disney+ from $69.99 to $56.

Buyers of Apple gift cards also get a free three months of Apple Music if they are new subscribers to the service, giving customers an added Black Friday bonus.

Customers who buy new Apple products over Black Friday can even get these gift cards for free, meaning that they are essentially also getting Disney+ free with the purchase of an Apple TV, iPhone or Mac. Apple is running a four-day Black Friday event where customers can get up to a $200 gift card free with the purchase of selected products. Apple has not revealed which products will have which gift card values, but last year they varied from an Apple TV ($25) to a new Mac ($200) and are expected to be similar this year.

Buyers of new Apple products also get a year free of Apple TV+, meaning that alongside the library of Disney+ shows and movies, customers can also watch shows like The Morning Show (starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon), See (starring Jason Momoa) and Servant, the new release from The Sixth Sense director M. Night Shyamalan which was released on Thanksgiving.

Disney+, meanwhile, offers nearly 500 movies, including the majority of the Disney, Marvel and Star Wars archives, plus over 7500 episodes of TV from these brands as well as National Geographic.
