[Expired] [Update] Amex Offers: $5 off $5 at Hulu [4x], Stack with up to $25+ Hulu Signup Offer

Deal has expired, view more Hulu deals by clicking here.

See update below for more Hulu signup offers.

The Offer

 

The Fine Print

Amex Terms:

  • Offer expires 3/28/19.
  • Must spend $5 or more in a single purchase to get the $5 credit.
  • Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem.
  • Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards are eligible.
  • Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card.
  • Offer valid online only at Hulu.com.
  • Limit of 4 statement credit(s) per Card Member.

Drop Terms:

  • Be sure to activate (“Add”) the Hulu offer first in the Drop app.
  • Must join Hulu through the Drop link.
  • Must be a new Hulu customer.
  • Points will be awarded within 14 days.

Our Verdict

If you combine the Amex deal and the drop deal, you should end up with 4 months of Hulu for $$3.96, plus you’ll have $25 worth of Drop points which can be redeemed for gift cards to places like Amazon. Or you can cancel earlier if you aren’t interested in Hulu.

It’s triple savings: a lower $5.99 monthly fee which Hulu is currently offering, $5 back from Amex each month, and the $25 Drop signup bonus. We have seen Hulu signup bonuses from Swagbucks for up to $32, but this Drop offer times well with the Amex deal (I’m not currently seeing any Swagbucks deal).

The Amex Offer deal will work equally for new Hulu customers or existing Hulu customers while the Drop offer is only for new customers.

If you are new to the Drop app, they currently have an increased signup offer to get a $5 bonus after linking a card. Our Referral code is: doctorofcredit.

Thanks to readers Andrew, Ryan, and Feb

For those who don’t do Drop, iBotta is offering a $10 bonus for new Hulu customers.

do i interpret this correctly:

Drop new sign up: $5
Sign up for hulu thru drop: $25
Amex cash back: $5
Hulu fee/month: $7.99

So, you can make: $27 on this deal?

Also, what is the minimum limit to cash out of drop?

Dennis
Dennis

$10 gift cards are redeemable on drop

Brian C

$10

Dan

Hulu fee per month is $5.99, not $7.99.

For Drop the minimum cashout varies for what you want to buy. The best redemption option is Amazon which is 10,000 ($10).

Thanks Doc. Btw Samsung pay has a $23 cashback that some people may prefer for hulu.com

Sorry for my ignorance, but when do I cancel my subscription? I really like this offer. I’m happy to pay 4$ for four months also I get to keep drop points which is nice. But, I’d not want Hulu after this offer. So, I keep paying for 4 months then at the end of 4th month I cancel my subscription altogether? When will AMEX award me statement credit for everything altogether?

Stephen
Stephen

statement credits will post (usually) a few days after each time you meet the criteria. One credit per month.

You’ll need an account for 4 months. If you don’t want to keep Hulu after the 4 credits, cancel after your 4th charge.

William Charles , both of these seem targeted btw.

I also see a 2,500 Swagbucks deal for Hulu.

I’ve generally had a good experience with Swagbucks but I’d urge caution for their Hulu offers that are administered by Trialpay, which have NEVER tracked for me.

My 2,500 Swagbucks are already showing (5min after doing the offer). I had Hulu before, but cancelled it several months ago.

I signed up for Hulu through Swagbucks (after a couple years away from Hulu), and it didn’t track for me either. I had just signed up for Swagbucks as well. I spent a little time trying to follow up, but Swagbucks’ site was confusing about who to follow up with it, so I gave it up as not worth the hassle. Since that was my first experience with Swagbucks as well I haven’t used them since.

Thanks doc … joined drop with your referral. Was already going to sign up for this for $1 a month after the Amex offer, might as well make over $20 (though you give up the free trial month if you go through Drop, as they charge you immediately). The 100 points for drop posted immediately, the 500 for referral not .. hope that posts a bit later.

Is there a way to prepay Hulu or buy a $5 Hulu gift card would trigger the offer? I have some gift cards loaded up and my next bill date is 1/2019.

I’m in the same situation…just loaded last month a GC to my account and now the next billing is Jan 2018 and I have this offer on 2 family Amexes. From past deals, they appear to have removed the option to load up or buy a GC just so Amex offer does not get used for those. So the only other option would be to put your subscription on hold and get a new one one in a family member’s name and at least use up the offer on one card. Note that to make best use, signup and payment have to take place before the 28th of October….just about 7 days left.
One part of me thinks too much of work for $20 (assuming I am still able to make use if 2 months)

TJ

No Hulu Amex offer, but there is a $10 off $15 for Uber and and $5 off $10 for Showtime x3.

Alex

Thank you for mentioning this. I cut cable awhile back and mainly use Hulu now, so this is a nice three months free.

I love the AmEx offers like this on everyday things that are easy to make use of.

5000 Mypoints available for signup which seems to be the most valuable offer. Also this may work if not eligible tor the Swagbucks offer.

Yu

Tom, did you get points shown up on your mypoints account immediately?

Tom
Tom

Yes.

Yu
Yu

I just signed from mypoints, but I still didn’t receive 5K points after 10 minutes.

Ace Malik

How much are mypoints worth

Tom
Tom

Dollars are around 2/3 of points depending on how you redeem.

Kurt

I just signed up through Mypoints. 5,000 points credited immediately as opposed to Swagbucks pending forever. It is indeed the most valuable of all of the current offers. I already had a little over 3,000 mypoints in my account so i was able to cash out a $50 Paypal credit on the spot. Electronic VGC are much cheaper but I find them to be a bit cumbersome to use and keep track of.

Fore those who wanta american airlines miles, they can use this offer to get 1500 AA miles and use amex card to get $5 back.

If i have used Hulu one year ago, am I considered a new user now? Basically how to become a new user? new address? new phone number? new email?

Tom

Hulu uses the term “eligible returning subscribers”. They don’t define what that means but generally if you have not had Hulu for 6-12 months then you qualify. If you log in to your existing account and see the offer for $5.99/mo and a free trial, then you probably qualify.
