The weekend’s best deals: Disney+ for $2, Anker chargers, and more

Ars Technica

It’s the weekend, which means it’s time for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the best tech deals from around the web includes a small but noteworthy discount on a one-month Disney+ subscription. If you’re a new or lapsed subscriber to the streaming app, you can currently grab a month of service for $2, down from the usual $8. Disney technically kicked off this promotion last week, but the offer is set to end on September 19, so consider this a last-minute PSA.

This isn’t a massive discount, clearly, but if you were already thinking of checking out the Ars-approved Thor: Love and Thunder (which landed on the service earlier this month), trying She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (which is set to conclude within this trial period), going on another Simpsons binge, or watching any other MarvelStar Wars, Pixar, National Geographic, or kid-friendly Disney show, this is a lower barrier of entry all the same. It also comes before Disney implements ads into this tier of service later this year. Just note that your subscription will be set to auto-renew by default, but the offer’s terms say that you can cancel anytime without losing the discounted month. Unfortunately, the deal isn’t available to current subscribers.

If you don’t want any more Disney, though, our roundup also includes several deals on recommended charging gear from Anker, a variety of discounts on well-reviewed video games, lower-than-usual prices on MacBook Pros and the M2 MacBook Air, and much more. You can find our full curated list of deals below.
