Walmart+ is currently on sale for just $49 making it a good way to get access to Paramount Plus a little cheaper than usual. Not to mention, access to the other benefits included with Walmart’s membership program.

Along with Amazon’s Prime Day 2023 shopping event, this week is also Walmart+ Week, and one of the deals on offer is the cost of Walmart+ being cut in half for the first year. This offer does expire July 13, 2023, so you don’t have all week to actually decide on whether it is right for you.

In addition to free shipping with no order minimum, and free delivery from your local Walmart store, one of the additional benefits included with Walmart+ is a free Paramount Plus subscription.

It is only the Essential plan that Walmart offers for free, so you won’t get access to any of the newly-added Showtime content. However, the Essential plan normally costs $5.99 a month, resulting in a total of $71.88 over 12 months.

Of course, Paramount Plus does also offer its own annual plans, which can help to save on the cost. Even then, however, the annual Essential plan still costs $59.99 a year, $10 more than Walmart+, and that’s without taking into account any of the other benefits. At this price, the average monthly cost is around $4.16 for Walmart+ and Paramount+.

If you also happen to be a Verizon customer, it might be worth noting that a Verizon deal that’s currently doing the rounds makes it possible to pay just $75 for a full year of Starz and Netflix. That’s $75, in total, for both services.

If you are eligible to take part in both promotions then you could potentially end up getting a year of Starz, Netflix (Premium), and Paramount Plus (Essential) for around $125. That’s roughly $10 a month on average.
