Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime fans can slash up to £175 off streaming bills using clever money saving trick

IF you’re thinking about canceling your Netflix subscription due to the new sharing ban, there might be another way to actually lower the cost of all your streaming bills.

Opting for the cheapest monthly tiers available on Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime will cost you over £260 all year round.

But with some careful planning, you could get the total package down to just over £87.

Here’s how.

Rotate your streaming services

Monthly rolling subscriptions are the key to the success of this money saving trick.

The cheaper the plan you choose, the more you save.

So in Netflix’s case, it’s the £4.99 ad-supported tier.

But even if you use the more expensive Netflix plans, you can still save money with this strategy.

The idea behind this is to alternate when subscribing instead of subscribing to them all at once.

So you could have four months of Netflix, four months of Disney+, and then four months of Amazon Prime.

Or you take turns every month.

plan ahead

A little administrative work can go a long way in making the rotation idea work.

Set calendar reminders about when you should cancel and when your month is up.

With some providers, like Netflix, you can cancel at any time and find out when the 30 days end.

To help you figure out when it’s best to renew, there are handy apps like JustWatch and ReelGood that can tell you where your favorites appear – and send you notifications when new episodes are available.

That way you don’t have to miss the office chat about a new show.

Keep an eye out for offers

Some streaming providers offer regular deals, which also help keep costs down.

For example, you can use your Tesco Clubcard points to get access to Disney+ for three months.

So it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for deals that can save you even more.
