Paramount Plus is offering military members a 25% discount (link) on any plan when they sign up over the Memorial Day weekend. While Paramount Plus routinely offers deals and discounts to new users, this is different as the subscriber will save 25% for as long as they remain a subscriber.
Paramount Plus offers two main plans and both of them are set to increase in price next month following the merging of Showtime. The cheapest plan is the Essential plan. Priced at $4.99 ($5.99 after June) per month, Essential offers ad-supported access to the streaming service’s library.
Then there’s the Premium plan. This one costs $9.99 ($11.99 after June) per month and offers ad-free access to Paramount Plus and Showtime, as well as a subscriber’s local CBS station.
No matter which of these two plans military personnel sign up to over Memorial Day weekend, Paramount Plus will give them a 25% discount, and that discount will continue to be applied for the life of their subscription. While this won’t guarantee either plan at its current price, it will ensure those subscribers are always paying 25% less than usual.
This is limited-time promotion that has been launched today ahead of the Memorial Day weekend, and will only be available through Monday, May 29, 2023.
As this offer is only available to military personnel who have served or are currently serving, those interested will need to verify their military status. This is done when signing up to Paramount Plus and through the use of a company called SheedID. This is the same company that Discovery Plus and a number of other streaming services use to help verify military and student discount eligibility.
For reference, this promotion also doesn’t seem to affect the availability of the free trial that Paramount Plus offers to new users. So not only can eligible subscribers sign up for a lifetime discount, but they can also test the streaming service out before paying.
