Discord may be free to use, but if you're looking for a few extra tricks to pull out in your favourite server, you can subscribe to Discord Nitro. And the popular chat client is giving away an extra free month for anyone who starts up or refreshes a monthly or annual subscription between November 24 and December 3 as part of its Buy-One-Get-One holiday promotion.
While it's easy enough to get by on Discord without paying a penny, Nitro opens up some tempting options for Discord power-users. Profiles can be customised with animated avatars and banners, file size limits for photos and videos are dramatically bumped up, and you can stream share at higher resolutions.
That said, the actual reason to get Nitro is to use all your painfully-specific custom emojis on whatever server you fancy—the galaxy brain play being to set up your own "emoji bank" server packed to the brim with horrible AI-generated cat reaction images to whip out at a moment's notice.
Discord Nitro | One month free | $9.99 monthly or $99 yearly Nitro subscription
With any purchase of a Nitro sub, either the yearly or monthly sub, you will now get one free month as part of its Holiday 'Buy One Get One' promo. Nitro is basically a way to enhance your standard Discord experience with GIF avatars, custom tags, higher video quality, etc.
There's reason enough to be hesitant of jumping into Nitro at the moment. Discord recently flirted with the idea of NFT integration—and while it has since walked back those plans, it only did so after a massive backlash, part of which involved many aggreived users cancelling their Nitro subscriptions in protest. Discord may currently have "no plans" to continue pursuing crypto at this time, but it hasn't written it out entirely.
There are also some eligibility restrictions which do bear noting as Discord states.
This promotion is currently available for:
- New $9.99 Nitro Monthly or $99 Nitro Yearly subscribers
