For a limited time, Google is offering people a free 3-month trial to its YouTube Premium subscription. If you’re tired of all the ads as you binge on YouTube, 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
Where do I sign up for the free trial of YouTube Premium?
If the offer doesn’t show up when you click on the link, try doing it in incognito mode. 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.
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!
