You can pause or cancel a Netflix subscription whenever you want, so you could have a “no spend” month without it.

If you cancel or switch subscription plans don’t forget that you’ll continue getting the service until the end of the billing period. Unfortunately, Netflix is not offering free trials a the moment – but you can get one over at Amazon Prime. Previously Netflix has made the first episode of popular shows like Stranger Things available to watch for free, but that feature is not available right now.
If you’re living with other people like family or flatmates, and are paying for a plan individually, it could be worth switching to a premium or standard plan that lets you have more than one person using it and splitting the cost. You’ll be able to set up separate users on the account to avoid getting recommendations based on other people’s viewing habits.
