Watch ‘Ted Lasso’ for Free With This Apple TV+ Deal
If you haven’t watched Ted Lasso yet, you have a chance now to binge the first two seasons for free, and the new third season coming out on March 15: Best Buy is offering three months of free Apple TV+ for all new and returning customers. It’s not clear how long the deal will be offered, but other similar deals lasted at least a month. If you’re on the fence about it, you can “buy” the free three months now, and hang onto the code, which is good until Sept. 5, according to a Best Buy email about the deal.
How to get the three free months of Apple TV+
First, you will be asked to “check out” Apple TV+ with a credit card, even though it’s free—that’s because after the three months are up, you will be automatically enrolled into their monthly plan. So if you don’t want the $4.99 monthly subscription plan, make sure to schedule a reminder for yourself to cancel it before you start getting charged.

Once you check out, you will receive an email with the instructions on how to activate the three months on Apple TV+. There are comments on the Best Buy page from people saying they never received the follow-up email with the instructions on how to get the code. If that happens to you, call Best Buy to follow up. You will need to have an Apple ID and an iTunes account set up to use Apple TV+.
