Amex Platinum Cardholders: Disney Bundle increases to $24.99/mo in October


The American Express Platinum card comes with a $20/month “digital entertainment” credit that can be used for Disney+, ESPN+, Hulu, the Disney Bundle, The New York Times, Peacock, SiriusXM, and The Wall Street Journal. Probably the most popular way to use it is with the Disney Bundle, which includes Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu, all without ads.

The bundle is currently $19.99+ tax, meaning that the $20/month credit takes of all but $1 or so (or all of it if you’re in a state with no sales tax). However, Doctor of Credit reports that, starting October 12th, the cost of the Disney bundle subscription will go up to $24.99/month.

What’s Changing

Starting October 12th, the following pricing will take effect for Disney+ subscriptions:

  • Disney Bundle Duo Premium – $19.99/month: Disney+ (No Ads) and Hulu (No Ads).
  • Disney Bundle Trio Basic – $14.99/month: Disney+ (With Ads), Hulu (With Ads), and ESPN+ (With Ads).
  • Disney Bundle Trio Premium – $24.99/month: Disney+ (No Ads), Hulu (No Ads), and ESPN+ (With Ads).
  • Legacy Disney Bundle – $18.99/month: Disney+ (No Ads), Hulu (With Ads), and ESPN+ (With Ads). This plan is no longer available to purchase or switch into on Disney+ — existing subscribers will be able to keep their plan so long as they do not cancel or change it.

Quick Thoughts

The Disney Bundle used to fit nicely into the $20/month American Express Platinum digital entertainment credit, now mine will be over $27 after tax. I’m not really into paying additional cash for ESPN+, so I’ll be switching my plan to the Duo Premium bundle. If there are any folks out there that don’t care about ads and still want access to all three, the basic bundle is still going to be ~$15, leaving $5 to go towards one of the other options.

I would expect a black Friday deal in two months as well.


If you don’t care for ESPN+, there is also the hulu and disney+ with ads bundle for $10 that isn’t going up, though you have to sub through Hulu. It still qualifies for the credit and is the bundle option.
