1. Hulu

Length of free trial: 30 days

What do you get with a subscription to Hulu?

Hulu’s starting to gain in popularity thanks to a strong lineup of original content paired with memorable older series. Hits like The Handmaid’s Tale and legacy series like ER, which is exclusive to Hulu, has helped propel the streaming platform to over 25 million subscribers.  

2. Kindle Unlimited

Length of free trial: 30 days

What do you get with a subscription to Kindle Unlimited?

Kindle gives access to about 600,000 ebooks. There’s no limit to the number of books you can read each month, even during the free trial period.

3. Amazon Prime

Length of free trial: 30 days

What do you get with a subscription to Amazon Prime?

If for some reason you’re not one of the 100 million Amazon Prime subscribers, you’re missing out on some cool benefits. Free two day delivery (on qualifying items), plus access to Amazon Music and Prime Video.

4. Walmart Beauty Box

Length of free trial: Always

What do you get with a subscription to Walmart Beauty Box?

This is a bit different. Walmart charges you the cost of shipping ($5) for a sample beauty box. They also have a men’s grooming box, which costs $7 for shipping.

5. Audible

Length of free trial: 30 days

What do you get with a subscription to Audible?

Audible lets you listen to a growing selection of audiobooks. They boast of having trained actors performing stories from your favourite authors. It’s also a Canadian brand that promises Canadian readers they’ll hear “a voice that sounds like home.”

6. Duolingo

Length of free trial: Always free

What do you get with a subscription to Duolingo?

We included Duolingo because its top competitor, Babbel, is a paid alternative. Duolingo is confident it can keep its product free while Babbel stands by charging for what they believe is a higher quality service.

7. Study.com

Length of free trial: 30 days

What do you get with a subscription to Study.com?

Study.com lets you study a variety of different subjects — from math and science to business and English —  through a series of short videos. You can sign up either as a student or teacher to tailor your experience.

Trying some of these subscriptions doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll like them. When you’re getting close to the end of your free trial, check out our How to Cancel pages. We give step by step instructions on how to cancel some of the more popular subscriptions.
