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.

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.
