Not 65? Dish’s senior deal may still save you $165

Man watching NFL on Dish.
Dish

Your first gray hairs and wrinkles likely started way before 65, and with Dish so can your senior discounts. Dish is a satellite-based TV service that serves all parts of the country, even places where traditional cable and internet providers might not have the infrastructure for. And, if you’re a mere 55, you can get access to Dish’s “55 and Older Deal”. It’s a deal that provides free content of your choosing at the beginning of every month, perfect for those days of extra relaxing that you’ve earned with time. This deal represents a $165 value, yours free if you sign up with Dish via the button below. Keep reading for more details and why you should get Dish.

Why you should get Dish at 55+

In general, Dish is very convenient for the quiet lifestyle. If you’re migrating to lower cost parts of the country to plan for a cheaper, more fulfilling retirement, you might find that infrastructure for services you’re used to isn’t quite the same. Dish changes that quite a bit, due to their satellite-based service that works everywhere equally. All you need is a roof and the ability to point at the sky. Plus, Dish has some perks that you wouldn’t normally realize. With Dish, for example, you can catch every NFL game — even those out-of-market ones that other services miss — and with your extra time, you might be able to actually catch them. If you’re hosting Christmas with the grandkids, Dish Christmas movies will be an entertainment lifesaver.

And speaking of movies, that’s where the perks come in. With the “55 and Older Deal” you get a free on demand movie rental each month. They have over 80,000 choices, including ~20,000 of the latest movies and Hollywood classics. And with Dish you can get these movies anywhere, whether there’s cable internet or not. That means streaming movies, at home, without buffering your way through the intro due to slow dialup speeds.

So, if you’re ready to make the switch to Dish and get your 55+ bonus, which is a $165 value, simply tap the button below. You’ll also get a locked in price for two years, meaning that at least one thing in your life won’t suffer from inflation.

Best streaming deals: Sling TV, Hulu, Peacock, and more
The Netflix home screen.

Whether you're cutting the cord finally or looking for a new platform to watch some unique content, just know there are some excellent streaming deals out there for you. That's important since there are so many different streaming services to choose from nowadays. It doesn't make sense to subscribe to every single one, but instead to go with the services that offer the best deals, and the most content you like. Disney+, for example, may have more movies and shows you like to watch than Peacock, or maybe vice versa? Or, perhaps when you're ready to subscribe, the Disney bundle that includes Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ together for one low price is more enticing than a single subscription. Whatever the case, if you're looking for some solid streaming deals, you've come to the right place.

Amazon Prime Video
Getting right into it, Amazon Prime Video, specifically, does not have a free trial. However, Amazon Prime subscribers do get access to Prime Video with their retail subscription, and that has a free trial. There's a catch, though. If you signed up for an Amazon Prime free trial before, or have had Prime, either as a trial or paid membership, any time in the last 12 months the trial isn't available. If you haven't, and you meet the eligibility, you can sign up for a Prime free trial for up to a month.

Best cable TV deals: Save on Dish, Xfinity, Spectrum, and more
end of cable tv

Maybe you'll be surprised, or maybe not, but cable TV providers are still around, and they're bigger than ever. Even with all of the various streaming platforms, nothing tops being able to tune in to a live broadcast. Sure, there are plenty of live TV streaming deals if you want to watch online, but what if you want traditional cable? Well, pull up a chair, folks, and let's dig in. This guide is going to break down all of the best cable TV deals available to you right now. Yes, now.
DirecTV

DirecTV, or rather now DirecTV Stream, is one of the more extensive cable TV options with packages that use your existing internet connection or the option to leverage a satellite connection -- which would need to be installed. Starting at $70 per month, you get access to over 75 channels, unlimited cloud DVR, and your first upgraded Gemini Receiver, which is what's used to watch DirecTV content. But here's the deal, and the real kicker, you'll get a $100 reward card for signing up, which essentially nets you one month free and then some. For the more expensive plans, Choice at $85 per month and Ultimate at $115 per month, you get a $200 reward card. But like the salesmen used to say, "wait there's more." You'll also get your first 3 months of premium networks free, giving you access to Max, Paramount+ with Showtime, Starz, Cinemax, and MGM+ -- a $160 value.
