Despite having two children, I have managed to avoid signing up for the new Disney+ streaming service so far. They are possibly in the age gap between the animated classics and the superhero movies.
(I did get a free year of Apple TV with my new iPhone, but I am still struggling to find any watchable free content on it.)
If signing-up for Disney+ has been at the back of your mind for a while, you should note that the annual subscription cost is jumping from £59.99 to £79.99 after 23rd February.
An Avios or Virgin Points-shaped carrot
As a further carrot to signing up, the British Airways shopping portal and the Virgin Atlantic Shops Away portal are both offering 1,500 points on top.
If you value an Avios or Virgin Point at 1p, then you are getting your first year of Disney+ for just £45. Even if you use the Avios for Nectar credit at 0.8p per point, you are getting £12 to spend in Sainsbury’s.
Both services offer a smaller incentive of 75 points if you sign-up for a monthly subscription. This is a poor deal (it isn’t 75 points per month – it is 75 points in total) and you are only protected from the price rise for six months.
Remember that the price rise kicks in after 23rd February.
