It’s time for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the best deals we can find from around the web includes a rare discount on HBO Max subscriptions. Currently, new or expired subscribers to the video streaming service can take 20 percent of the cost of a monthly subscription, for up to 12 months in total. The deal applies to both ad-supported and ad-free plans, bringing them down to $8 per month (from $10) and $12 per month (from $15), respectively. If you run the offer for the full 12 months, it will result in a $24 discount for those who sign up for the ad-supported tier, or a $36 discount for those who choose the ad-free option. The deal doesn’t prevent you from subscribing for a set amount of time, but note that, by default, the service will be set to auto-renew at the usual monthly rate once your discounted period ends. The Service Offer page states that this deal is for the US only and will run until January 25th. While the deal doesn’t apply to existing subscribers or annual HBO Max plans, this is still a handy savings for those who were already considering making the service go. Warner Bros. does not plan to to release major movies on HBO Max and in theaters at the same time going forward, but if you need something new to indulge in, the service still has a great deal of fare we like, from the latest matrix Movie (until January 21, at least) for newer shows like white lotusAnd NeversAnd hacks, And Succession. classics like soprano And curb your enthusiasm They are still there too.

The Apple Watch Series 7, our top pick for smartwatches, is under $10 off the lowest price we’ve tracked, while Jabra’s Elite 75t, a pair of true wireless noise-canceling headphones we’d recommend, is under $5 from the lowest Its price at all.
