I've been wanting to sign up for HBO Max for awhile now. Not only did we name it one of the best streaming services, but there are a ton of shows I've been wanting to watch on the streaming service. Well, the time has come to sign up because there's a killer HBO Max deal everyone needs to check out. 

Through September 26, HBO Max is offering 50% off its ad-free subscription plan. After discount, you'll pay $7.49 per month for the first six months of your subscription. That's cheaper than their ad-supported plan, which costs $9.99 per month. The offer is valid for new and returning HBO Max customers. After the promo is up, you'll auto-renew each month at the standard rate of $14.99. Alternatively, you can cancel at any time to avoid any unwanted payments.
