Hulu has launched a $1.99 per month deal for college students (regularly $5.99/month). College enrollment is verified through SheerID. Many college students already subscribe to the Spotify Premium/ Hulu/ Showtime bundle through Spotify for $4.99 a month, but this plan is now being offered for those only interested in the Hulu service.

Quote from qkumbr :
I got the $1.99/mo Black Friday promo. No tax in my state. I use a Discover card. I don't use the card for anything else. Discover writes off balances under $2.00. I've been enjoying free Hulu.
Is there no annual fee for that card?

I tried the $1.99 deal the previous year but couldn't take the ads anymore. I do actually like a lot of the content on Hulu so I created a new account with Apple billing and got a bunch of discounted gift cards while they were still available so that gives me about 20% off the no ads plan for a while.

Now that Apple combined gift cards, the days of discounts are long gone but if you consider Best Buy or Target gift cards the same as cash, you can still get about 15% off the no ads plan by getting in on one of those gift card deals (when available) and billing through Apple.

If you can afford it, it's worth the premium to not see the same exact commercials over and over again every few minutes.

The most annoying thing for me was, if you happen look away from whatever you're watching for a few seconds and miss something that happened right before an ad break, to go back, you have to sit through the ad, rewind, watch the few seconds you missed and then sit through the ad again lol.

Somehow with my luck I'd always end up missing stuff right before an ad break and I just couldn't take it anymore.

Not all plans, but I believe the $60 unlimited and up are eligible for free Hulu accounts. You should have received a link at some point after activation, but you can always contact c/s and they'll send you the link again.

No Ad plan is worth it for $11.99. The ads on Hulu are awful. That said, if you can't afford that and don't wanna watch ads. There's other ways....
Other ways? Do tell please.

Search engine other than google. Type the show you want to watch + free stream. There's always some sites. Just remember to have an adblocker.

I can't believe we've moved past the model of paying for a service and then having to watch ads, and yet so many people are ready to welcome it back.

If you watch ads, the service should have no fee. Don't give in.

Spend it on Prime and watch some Pluto and Peacock for free.
Are there any deals to get peacock free? broke student here.

Agreed on hulu. Tried out Hulu (ads) and noticed the volume of the ads are much louder than the actual shows. Found myself rushing for the remote to mute the commercials. Immediately canceled service.

Thought they passed a law against this but probably left a loophole for streaming platforms. I see it as their tactic to get folks to pay for ad-free. Well not me, especially now out of sheer resentment.

Pluto is the freakin bomb. Highly recommend. Good movies on there all the time and all kinds of good tv shows old and new. Been digging the barker era price is right lately. Best part is it streams like cable used to so you don't have to commit to anything, just flip through.

I tried ad-supported once, and there was such an unbelievable number of ads that I didn't last through a whole episode before I immediately signed up for ad-free. I can't believe they expect people to pay for such an ad heavy service

All Discover cards have no annual fee.

Screw Hulu. Fox News hosts are claiming that Antifa was responsible for the terrorist attack on the Capitol. Hulu Sponsors FoxNews
