Prime Day is a great time to stock up on batteries

Prime Day is in full swing. To most people, that means splurging on some expensive electronics that would normally be just out of their price range. But there’s another way to save money during Prime Day deals — buy necessary items you will eventually have to buy anyway. Batteries are a great option here. You know you’re going to use them. You know you’re going to have to buy more. Buy them now and save some cash.

There are great discounts on all types of batteries. Stock up on some of the best rechargeable batteries, for example. Amazon has some options that will net you up to 32% off. There are of course standard AA and AAA options with nice deals. You can grab a pack of 16 for only $7 while they’re 50% off, for example. That’ll replace all the batteries in every remote in your house. Just make sure you safely recycle your old batteries when you’re done with them. Amazon has literally hundreds of battery options to choose from.

The best portable chargers are also a good battery-adjacent purchase during Prime Day. The key is focusing on items that you know you’re going to need. Don’t get duped into buying a new TV if you really don’t need one. You’ll see a lot of shiny price tags with steep discounts on them this week. But the real savings comes from discounts on products you were going to buy anyway. Timing is key here. Buy bulk on odds and ends like batteries, and you’ll feel the savings soon enough.

If you love watching sports and gaining access to some of the best shows, documentaries, in-demand content, and even films related to sports, then ESPN+ is the perfect service for you. Unfortunately, there aren't currently any free trials for ESPN+ for 2024, but there are some other options, such as the Disney+ bundles and carrier options. Keep reading and we'll go through all the options you have to grab yourself an ESPN+ subscription for cheap or potentially for free.
Is there an ESPN+ free trial?

The short answer is there is no ESPN+ free trial as of now. ESPN offered a free trial back in 2018 when it launched its premium streaming platform, but that was sadly short-lived. If you're looking for a way to try ESPN+ for free (or at least save some money on your subscription), though, then don't give up just yet -- you have some options.

Amazon Prime Video free trial: Stream for a month for free

If you've ever shopped on Amazon -- and these days, who hasn't? -- then you've likely heard about the option for an Amazon Prime membership. This subscription is mostly touted as a way to save on shipping costs when purchasing from Amazon, but it also comes bundled with some other handy features including access to Amazon's streaming service, Amazon Prime Video. You'll find a range of movies and shows to watch, but if you're not sure whether you need yet another streaming service, there is an option for a free trial to see if you like the service before paying for it.
Is there an Amazon Prime Video free trial?
There is indeed an Amazon Prime Video free trial, but it's tied into the Prime free trial, which lasts for a month and may or may not be available to you. To see if you're eligible, you'll need to and check. The general rule is that the Prime free trial (and by extension, an Amazon Prime Video free trial) is available to Amazon accounts that have either never signed up for a Prime trial or have not had Prime -- either a trial or paid membership -- any time in the last 12 months.

The Prime free trial is usually for 30 days, similar to the Hulu free trial. If you're not eligible for the Amazon Prime Video free trial, though, then be patient: Sometimes, Amazon will sometimes offer free trials to its loyal customers, so if you have an Amazon account (but not a Prime membership) and shop on the site regularly, you might find a Prime trial offer sitting in your inbox one day. Often, though, these are shorter seven- or 14-day trials rather than the 30-day trial. Nonetheless, it's obvious that Amazon is a bit more generous with these trial periods than other services -- there's no Disney+ free trial or Netflix free trial, for example, but it's thankfully much easier to get an Amazon Prime Video free trial.
