Hulu Deals 2020: Disney Plus, Spotify for Students, and More

Let save you a few bucks on your Hulu subscription.

Best value

Hulu, Disney+, ESPN+ Bundle


Best for students

Hulu with Spotify Premium for Students


Good for Hulu on the go

Hulu with Sprint Unlimited


At $5.99 a month (or $11.99, if you’d rather avoid ads), Hulu isn’t all that expensive, especially considering the on-demand streamer’s vast library of original and acquired content. But, who has two thumbs and is always on the hunt for a bargain? You guys (or identifier of your choice).

Here are three of the best Hulu deals currently available for getting your green on.

Hulu deal #1: Hulu, Disney Plus, ESPN Plus Bundle 

Sometimes, there are consumer benefits to cross-corporate media ownership—and the Hulu/Disney+/ESPN+ triple play is easily one of the sweetest deals out there.

With it, you get Hulu (the regularly $5.99-a-month ad-supported version), Disney+ (regularly $6.99 a month), and ESPN+ (regularly $5.99 a month) for a bundled monthly bill of $12.99. That’s a monthly savings of $5.98, or $71.76 annually. For entertainment and sports, not bad.

Hulu deal #2: Hulu with Spotify Premium for Students

If you’re a Hulu-curious college student and a music lover, it’s tough to beat the Spotify Premium for Students deal: for $4.99 a month, you get both—and SHOWTIME.

Again, it’s the ad-supported version of Hulu. Neither Spotify Premium nor SHOWTIME have commercials, though, so it kind of evens out.

To get in on this entertainment savings of $21.98 a month, you’ll need to be verified as a student through Sheer ID. Be advised that not all schools are eligible for this student deal.

This deal is activated through your Spotify account. It’s good for a year, and you can reapply annually for up to four years while you’re still a student.

Hulu deal #3: Hulu with Sprint Unlimited

Need phone service? Sprint Unlimited wireless plans come with a free Hulu subscription (the ad-supported version—yes, you’re sensing a pattern).

This deal has been around for a while, but it’s apparently survived Sprint’s merger with T-Mobile and is still available to new and existing customers.

Sprint/T-Mobile’s unlimited talk and text plans run between $60 and $85 a month for a single user. And Hulu viewing isn’t limited to your phone screen; you can also watch Hulu on your TV, tablet, or computer using the Hulu app.

If you already subscribe to basic Hulu directly, you can take advantage of this deal by switching the billing from Hulu to Sprint. If your Hulu subscription is already part of a third-party deal, it’s not eligible for the Sprint freebie.

Hulu deals FAQ

Are deals available for Hulu (No Ads) or Hulu + Live TV?

No, currently there aren’t any deals available for Hulu (No Ads) or Hulu Live. The deals we’ve listed on this page are for the basic, ad-supported version of Hulu, which usually goes for $5.99 a month.

Can I try out Hulu for free?

All of Hulu’s plans come with a 30-day free trial period, meaning you can try out basic Hulu for a month before committing to one of the above deals.

So, if you find you’re not into Hulu after 30 days, and you don’t care at allabout ESPN+, you could skip the triple bundle and just go with Disney+ alone for $6.99 a month.

How can I save money on a Hulu subscription alone?

If you’re not interested in any of the discounts or bundles above, there is another way to save a few bucks on a standalone, ad-supported Hulu subscription: pay for a year up front.

With an annual subscription to basic Hulu for $59.99 a year, you’ll save $11.89 over 12 months. This deal isn’t available for Hulu (No Ads) or either Hulu + Live TV plan.

How do I redeem a Hulu gift card code?

Head over to Hulu’s gift page and enter your gift card’s redemption code— that’s it.

If you don’t have a Hulu account yet, you’ll be asked to make a new one. Once your gift card money runs out, your account will cancel on its own.

If you already have a Hulu subscription, you can redeem your Hulu gift card on your account page. After your gift card money is used up, your subscription will go back to using the card on file.
