Hulu for $1.99/mo for 12 months (stack with Amex Platinum benefit)`

6

Hulu is offering service for just $1.99 per month for 12 months. This could make for a great use of a Digital Entertainment Credit for those with an Amex Platinum card. I could see this being particularly useful for those who already use a couple of services that don’t use the entire $20 credit .

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Offer for Hulu (With Ads) plan only:$1.99/month for 12 months, then auto-renews at $7.99/month or then-current regular monthly price.
  • Ends 11:59 PM PST on 11/28/22.
  • Cancel anytime, effective at the end of your billing period.
  • No refunds or credits for partial months.
  • Offer valid for new and eligible returning subscribers (who have not been Hulu subscribers in the past 1 month) only.
  • Not combinable with any free trial of the Hulu (With Ads) plan or any other promotional offers or pricing (including the Disney Bundle)
  • Not redeemable via gift card.
  • Any plan switch after redemption of this offer will result in forfeiture of the discount pricing.

Quick Thoughts

As noted at the top, I see this offer being most useful for those who use a majority (but not all of) their monthly Digital Entertainment Credit. Unfortunately, as per the terms, I don’t think it’s possible to add the Disney Bundle to this or upgrade to a plan with no commercials as it says that any plan switch after redemption will result in forfeiture of the discount pricing. I therefore think this will mostly appeal to those who might add Hulu as a “kind of nice thing to have”.

Personally, I already get Netflix from T-Mobile and I’d subscribe to Amazon Prime with or without their video content and we have a free year of Paramount+ from T-Mobile and could add a free year of Apple TV (but haven’t) and I just don’t get much of a chance to watch any of them these days, so I probably won’t bother with Hulu here mostly to avoid having to remember to cancel it when the promotional pricing ends. If I were going to get Hulu, I’d probably make it the primary use of my Digital Entertainment credit in order to make it part of a Disney Bundle, but that would require paying full price.

That said, I could see this maybe being appealing even as a holiday gift, particularly for those who will get the cost rebated. Just be sure to set a reminder for when the price goes up.

I have used this for the last 2 years. I use different emails each time we sign up. So far, it has worked. When Disney/Hulu finally realize that their pricing is too high for the marketplace, maybe they’ll change their pricing structures. Having Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN, even an all together package is priced too high. Plus Disney says they have more subscribers than Netflix, but that is with all of their streaming services in total. Content wise, I prefer Netflix over Disney/Hulu. The constant stream of Marvel movies is boring and exhausting. They all seem the same.

Currently I don’t feel guilty about gaming the Black Friday special because I just want to watch one show: The Handmaids Tale.

Just FYI if you are using the Amex benefit for the regular price ($7.99) but want to take advantage of the discount rate it won’t work. Even if you use a different email account to satisfy the ‘new and returning accounts’ requirement, Hulu will recognize the credit card has been attached to a current account and decline to give you the offer even if the email is different. However at $1.99 a month for a year you can use a different card and free up $8.00 on the Amex to use for another service.
