Last-minute streaming gift cards:
Disney Plus 12-month subscription $79.99 / £79.90
See at DisneyPlus.com
Disney Plus has never been better. It’s only been around a couple of years, but it’s already one of the biggest streaming services in the world. Packed with pretty much every Disney movie ever, you’ll find all the Marvel and Star Wars movies (not to mention some new, big-budget, TV spin-offs, National Geographic programming and more. An important note for this as a gift though, this code will only work for new subscribers, so it’s no good for anyone that already has Disney Plus as this won’t stack on top. Baffling decision right there, Disney. When purchasing this item you have the option of sending the code to yourself, or arranging for it to be emailed to a recipient and date of your choosing.
Netflix credit gift cards
$30 / $60 / £100 at Walmart
$30 / $60 / £100 at Best Buy
Ah Netflix, the old favorite and unlike the Disney Plus subscription above, you don’t have to worry about the recipient already being a subscriber as they can add this credit to their existing account. Depending on what Netflix tier they’re on, prices run at $9, $14, or $18 a month if that helps you choose the amount you want to send to them. Codes can be retrieved for you to pass onto the recipient shortly after purchase.
Amazon Prime membership
$39 – $119 at Amazon
Note: you’ll have to login to your Amazon account to see this product. Amazon Prime membership isn’t just about free and speedy delivery of purchases, it comes with a huge library of movies and TV shows to enjoy on TV, tablet, and mobile. Options for you to have emailed to someone as a gift include three and 12-month subscriptions. This won’t automatically renew either, so you’re not on the hook after the original time purchased. If they’re already a member, they’ll be offered a swap for a regular Amazon gift card of equivalent value.
Another option you might want to consider is a Hulu gift card, also available by email delivery from Walmart. As for HBO Max, the streaming service does not have any sort of gift card option running right now. So your only option is sharing you own login, or perhaps creating an account for the recipient with a new email address and giving them the details to get themselves logged in. There are various deals available with prices starting at $9.99 a month at HBOMax.com and annual subscriptions are available which save you 16% compared to paying monthly. HBO Max is the only way you can watch Matrix Resurrections online too.
