There’s a new Amex Offer out today that’s good for $25 back on $99.99 or more for an annual HBO Max subscription. That drops the monthly average down to about $6.25 per month, which certainly makes it more appealing.

Quick Thoughts

I actually just cancelled HBO Max a couple of months ago as we had been on the $14.99 monthly plan and weren’t using it much. However, I’ll probably sign back up with this Amex Offer. I saw the Broadway show In the Heights on Broadway and again off-broadway and I still listen to the soundtrack often. I have been anxiously awaiting the movie version (which was originally scheduled to be released last summer and finally came out on HBO Max just a few days ago), so I was already intending to subscribe for a month. I hadn’t realized that HBO Max has two tiers — $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year with ads or $14.99 per month or $149.99 per year without ads and with 4K UHD. With this offer, I’ll spend an extra $60-$65 over what I’d already intended (I had intended to spend $15 not realizing that $10 was an option) and I’ll get an additional 11 months – that’s a good enough deal for me to go ahead and subscribe.

However, I’m not going to subscribe today. One of the rumored new benefits coming to the Platinum card sometime soon is a streaming credit. Rumors have recently circulated that the streaming benefit may be released as early as this week. I’d actually be surprised if that happens — my bet would be a more likely July 1st start date — but I’ll add the offer to the Platinum card and hold off a few days to see if we hear any news on that front.

Note that according to cashbackmonitor.com, MyPoints.com is offering about $18 back with a subscription. I don’t have a MyPoints account, so I can’t verify that. I didn’t see HBO Max through other portals, but it is possible than an HBO Store click-through might work? If you have any experience getting a portal offer to track, let us know in the comments.

Jumped on this offer when it posted and of course TopCashback isn’t tracking that deal. I clicked only through topcashback and never left the site so it should have tracked. I took screenshots of the amount offered (73.4%), the screen showing they have recorded my visit to HBOMAX, and my purchase confirmation from HBOMAX. I submitted all of this to topcashback on 7/7 (9 days after my purchase).

Any experience on how long it’ll take before I see it tracked in my pending on the topcashback dashboard, or was there anything I should have done differently?


My HBO Amex Offer is gone!


Does anyone know a way to make the $100 one time payment to an existing HBO max subscription? Telephone reps seem to think not possible.


It’s perhaps worth noting that the $100/year plan does not include same day Warner Bros movie premieres, 4K streams, or offline viewing. It also has ads.

To go ad-free and get the other features, you need the $150/year plan.

Not enough stacks to meet the FM standards, I’ll wait till you all take it to Walmart+ levels of stackery.

This can probably be stacked with the upcoming $20 monthly streaming credit on the Platinum card, assuming the rumors are true.


Do you think this could be stacked with the $30/month Amex Platinum PayPal credit?


I believe in regards to other Amex offers this has not worked (i.e. Best Buy, Home Depot, etc.) It does work with the Saks credit, however, since that is a universal Amex Plat offer and not a specific Amex offer. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.


Thanks for the heads up. Related to this — I used to be able to add an offer to my spouses card, and also to my card (I’m an authorized user). Now, it no longer lets me do that — has anyone else experienced this?
