Paramount Plus subscribers can currently save an additional 25% on the cost of an annual plan. As these yearly plans are already discounted compared to when paying monthly for the service, this is effectively a discount on top of a discount. As to be expected, this is a limited-time promotion and consumers will need to sign up to Paramount+ before the end of this month to take advantage of the additional savings.
Paramount Plus provides access to a variety of shows and movies that span different genres, making it an option that’s likely to suit different members of the same household. For example, the Paramount Plus plans not only open up access to a number of reality TV shows, but also select sports events as well. For those that are also interested in Showtime, there’s even the option to bundle the two subscriptions together and save up to 28% in the process.
A standard monthly Paramount Plus subscription costs $4.99 per month, but consumers can also upgrade to the $9.99 per month plan if they want to remove the ads. In addition, Paramount Plus offers an annual subscription for each plan which reduces the cost by 16% over the 12 months. However, right now consumers can head over to the Paramount+ website and use the “NEWYEAR” promo code to reduce the cost of the annual plans by another 25%. The promotional code works on both the Essential and Premium plans and results in an overall saving of 37% compared to paying monthly.
To put the promotion into perspective, if signing up to the Premium Paramount+ annual plan, then the total price comes out at around $75 for the year instead of $99.99. This then works out to be roughly $6.25 per month instead of the usual $9.99. Likewise, if opting for the Essential plan, then consumers will get the same 25% discount on the annual $49.99 plan, taking the final cost down to around $37.50 for the year (or $3.12 per month).
The discount is live now and due to remain available up until January 31, 2022, so consumers do only have up until the end of this month to start a subscription and take advantage of the savings. For reference, this promotion does not impact on the Paramount Plus free trial, with consumers still able to test out the service for free for one week before having to pay the discounted annual subscription price.
