So go ahead and hang with the McAllisters this season, ya filthy animal.
Keep reading to find out all the ways you can watch this holiday classic this year.
How to Watch Home Alone for Free
Home Alone is free for Disney+ subscribers. Right now, this is the only streaming service offering the original movie to watch for free. If you’re already a subscriber, there’s nothing left to do but put on your coziest jammies and curl up with a bowl of popcorn. But if you aren’t a subscriber yet, the service is $7.99 per month. You could absolutely sign up for one month and get your fill of holiday movies for eight bucks and then cancel. Or you could sign up for a year for $79.99, which is just $6.66 per month if you pay for the full year up front.
How to Save on a Disney+ Subscription
The $79.99 price is already marked down and will renew at $109.99 after the first year. It’s really the best bargain you’re going to get right now. But there are other ways to save.
Get free Disney+ with Verizon.
Verizon Unlimited customers can get six months free of Disney+ even with a current subscription. New and existing Verizon Unlimited customers have access to this deal. It gets you Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN all for free for the 6-month promotional period. After that, it’ll renew at the original subscription price.
Select 5G plans will get an even better deal. For customers enrolled in participating plans, Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN are included in your monthly bill. So you get to watch these streaming services at no extra charge. If you’re not already enrolled in this perk, you have until Nov. 30 to sign up and stream Home Alone for free.
Look for deals throughout the year.
We’ve seen deals on Disney+ offered during Disney+ Day, Amazon Prime Day, and more throughout the year. These discounts are rare and often short-lived, so keep an eye out and be sure to download The Krazy Coupon Lady app to never miss a streaming deal.

Rent Home Alone on Amazon
If you’re not sold on a Disney+ subscription, you also have the option to rent Home Alone on Amazon Prime Video. It’s $3.99 to rent, and you’ll have the rental for 30 days with a 48-hour period to stream it once you start. There’s also an option to buy the movie for $9.99 so you can watch to your heart’s content every holiday.
Not a Prime member? You can rent Home Alone on YouTube, Google Play, iTunes, and Vudu.
