For a limited time, Google is offering people a free 3-month trial to its YouTube Premium subscription. There are several ways to get YouTube Premium for free so if you’re tired of all the ads as you binge on your favorite videos, this is for you!

What’s Included In YouTube Premium?
Ever since YouTube launched in 2005, it has become the place to watch anything video-related; viral videos, memes, music releases – you name it, YouTube has it.
However, it’s still a business in it to make money, so it’s been adding more ads to its videos. YouTube is starting to feel like watching TV – you get to an exciting part and before the climax unfolds… commercials.
Enter YouTube Premium, a monthly subscription that lets you watch videos without all the annoying ads. It also has other benefits too!
YouTube Premium offers three main advantages over regular YouTube:
- No ads = you’re able to watch as many videos as you want ad-free
- Downloads = the ability to download your favorite videos and watch it offline
- YouTube Music Premium = listen to music ad-free offline
Free Trial of YouTube Premium: 3 Methods
Method #1: YouTube Premium Referral
You’ll get three months of YouTube Premium for just $0.99 if you use a referral link from a current Premium subscriber.
This is the newest method and the one that consistently works. Although it’s not 100% free, it’s pretty close to it – we’re talking about less than a dollar.
You can cancel anytime. If you do decide to continue with your YouTube Premium membership, you’ll be charged $11.99/month after the first three months.

Method #2: Targeted Offer
This method is a hit or miss, sometimes you’ll be offered one month instead of three months. If the offer doesn’t show up when you click on the link below and instead it shows a 1-month free trial, try doing it in incognito mode. This method is working for some readers and a few are even getting a 4-month promotion!
Once you sign up, the 3-month clock immediately begins and YouTube will charge you the regular rate of $11.99 a month at the end of the third month.
Ninja Tip: Don’t make it hard on yourself. Cancel immediately after you sign up. You’ll still get the three months for free, but it won’t automatically charge you for the fourth month.
Method #3: Best Buy Free 3-Month Trial Of YouTube Premium
For a limited time, Best Buy is giving away a free trial of YouTube Premium. The free trial is the same 3-month duration as the YouTube promo, so try the Best Buy link if the main one doesn’t work.
This deal tends to be on and off. If you see red text with the phrase, “This item is no longer available in new condition”, that means it’s not currently available.
YouTube Premium FAQs
What If I’m Still Not Getting The Free 3-Month Trial?
There are two other options that will save you money. From the same link above, YouTube is also offering:
- Student Plan = one month free trial and then $6.99/month (requires .edu email address)
- Family Plan = one month free trial and then $17.99/month (up to 5 family members)
How Do I Cancel My YouTube Premium Subscription?
Go to YouTube.com or your YouTube app and click on your profile icon. A drop-down menu will appear. Find and select the “Paid memberships” line – this is where you can cancel your subscription.
Alternatively, for the lazy ninjas, you can get to it here.
The Bottom Line
Good deal worth $36 dollars – just signed up myself. Besides the money, you save yourself valuable time not watching ads.
I recently launched a YouTube channel for The Money Ninja – feel free to check it out and subscribe to my channel. I plan on expanding to videos soon!

I love that you’re giving people a chance to try out YouTube Premium for free! It’s a great way to get a feel for the service before deciding if it’s worth subscribing.
I’m all about the free trials!
I did it with other way
1.download Surfshark (VPN)
2.connect to a server that is compatible with the country of the gift (if your country is not on the list dont worry)
3.sign in to your Google Account at Youtube that has never got premium.
4.open google chrome and write https://www.youtube.com/redeem
5.Put the Reedem Code
6.then you will see 3 months free premium just put a payment method but before you confirm put the postal code of the country and city of your choice from VPN.
And Now You Have 3 Months Free Youtube Premium!!!
After that Close the VPN and cancel the automatic payments and delete all cookies and cache from your browser and Youtube!
How do I get my redeem code?
its kinda shady to make the free trial difficult to get , however it was really easy tp get the best buy account
I agree! Why do companies make us go through hoops? 🤷
There’s actually a Free Extension for Google users to Block Ads on Youtube, you can use it if you want just seach “uBlock Origin”.
I went “In Cognito”.
It only worked for the 1 month.
Then it asked me to sign in, and is charging me the monthly rate of $11.99/mo.
Not sure what to do anymore. I hate ads!!
Unfortunately, not everyone is getting the 3-months (or sometimes 4-months) free offer. I hate ads too! Once you’re on YouTube Premium, it’s hard to get off. YouTube does have discounts for students and families if that applies to you.
Make a new account and start over
Incognito worked! Attempting to sign up for 3 month free trial Premium. When I get to last page where credit is required I notice trial is only 1 month. Turned incognito mode on and the 3 month trial showed up!!!!!!!!!!!!
I subscribed and didn’t receive my youtube premium trial I’m livid?!!! 🤬😡🤯
You need to see the free month promo in order to get YouTube Premium. What did the page say when you subscribed?
I tried many times. didnt work for me. anyone. I can sure use some help
Worked using incognito trick. Thanks Ninja!
i got the 3 months through Chrome incognito, going to switch to the student plan after. perks of being a 40-year old grad student!
