HBO Max is currently offering new and returning customers the option to save 50% on the cost of an ad-free subscription for six months. HBO Max is an expensive single subscription compared to many others, so having the option to save, and for a number of months, is a promotion worth taking advantage of. That is, providing HBO Max’s movies, shows and exclusives are of interest to an individual or household.


HBO Max currently offers two subscription tiers. The first and original subscription costs $14.99 per month and provides a number of benefits including ad-free watching, the option to download videos, and for the rest of 2021, the option to watch all of the Warner Bros. movies the same day they are released in theaters. The other subscription skips on all of these perks, but reduces the price down to $9.99 per month.

Right now, HBO Max is offering the option to sign up to the service for just $7.49 per month. This deal is specifically on the higher, ad-free plan which normally costs $14.99 per month, resulting in a 50-percent saving compared to the usual price. The reduced cost plan is not just for the first month, with the $7.49 price applied for the first six months of the subscription.


As to be expected, this is a limited time deal. The discount went live today (September 17) and will remain available up until September 26. There’s not much for interested consumers to do to take advantage of the discount other than heading over to the HBO Max website and signing up for the ad-free plan. For reference, the discounted subscription is not only for new customers, but also anyone that was previously a subscriber and no longer is.

At this price, the ad-free HBO Max plan is actually cheaper than the ad-supported version, making it a good option for anyone considering signing up to the service. After signing up, they will not only unlock ad-free access to all of the content, but also benefit from all of the other perks available with the more expensive plan.

Besides the limited time to sign up, consumers should be aware that automatic billing is in effect. In other words, unless the subscriber cancels HBO Max before the end of the discounted six-month period, the subscription will automatically convert to the higher cost, with the subscriber being charged the full $14.99 each month.
