78,687 Views
** New Subscribers Only **

HULU is offering FREE Roku Express wit 4-month subscription of HULU Limited Commercials Plan.

if you have Amex Offer [Details] on your card, you can get this for $4.99. Also, If you haven't redeemed SwagBucks Offer [Details] yet, it will be $8 money maker when combined with Amex-Hulu promo. [SwagBucks Promo may not be available anymore]

Steps to be followed are:

1. Check if your Amex card has Hulu offer. Add it to your card.
2. Login to SwagBucks account and search for Hulu Offer.
3. Launch Hulu link through SwagBucks.
4. Once the Hulu offer is displayed, modify the URL as described below by Biggerfool.
5. Roku offer page would be presented. Make payment using the Amex card which has the Hulu offer added to it.
6. After payment is made, you will received a confirmation email from Amex confirming that you have redeemed Hulu offer.
7. Check SwagBucks account after 10 mins to see that 1300 SwagBucks have credited.

Thanks to Biggerfool for below instructions.

wwwhulucom/start/roku-4month?utm_source=TrialPay&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=brand&cmp=7252&subid=U1XXXXX

So you are only changing the very first trialpay to roku-4month. That changes the offer shown/provided but still gives the credit to Trial Pay which means you get the credit from swagbucks. Do not delete the rest of your link or Swagbucks might not credit you the points.

Remember there is risk in doing this but this worked for me so I wanted to be very clear how to repeat it. Hopefully this helps some folks.
Offer is Valid through 3/15/17.

After 4 months, it will cost $7.99/month plus applicable taxes if you choose to continue. Add a reminder to cancel the subscription after 3 months to avoid future charges.

The SwagBucks offer is dead, but Mypoints.com is offering 500 points (around $3). I followed the same process on Mypoints.com that Biggerfool described below, and it worked perfectly. The 500 points was credited instantly.

So far so good...already got the 1300 swagbucks posted, $25 Amex credit email received and the free stick.

I LOVE money makers!

Here is a BIG TIP to make both promos combine correctly.

For whatever reason, sometimes for some people it isn't providing the Swagbucks so like I warned--it is a risk, but one that is worth trying.

Here are a few tips to help clear up some roadblocks.

1.) The best deal is the free Roku&4months of Hulu+Amex$25 refund+$13 Swagbucks credit for $29.99 (plus tax in some states it appears)

To get all of that you need to ALREADY have the Hulu $25 credit for $25+ purchase offer selected on your American Express card. If you have not added that offer to your card, you can go to Amex's website to see if they are still offering it but my guess is that the offer limit was already reached so it isn't being offered currently.

I know in my case, I added that offer quite a while ago just because it was SO good but I didn't expect to use it.

You also need a Swagbucks account without having used the 1,300 Hulu offer.

If you don't have the Amex $25 off $25+ offer already, then the deal is a LOT colder. There is still a chance of getting 1,300 points from Swagbucks but you are going to be out $29.99 (plus tax) so you have to want Hulu or want a Roku to proceed.

2.) To "find" the Hulu offer on Swagbucks, merely search for hulu in the text box on the top left and you SHOULD see two offers for Hulu. Select the 1,300 point offer (click on it) then once that page loads fully, switch the FIRST trialpay only--following my instructions that you can find placed in the OP's first post or the Wiki.

- Do not clear the rest of the link.

- Do not change the SECOND trialpay.

- Make sure you have cookies turned on BEFORE logging into Swagbucks.

- Make sure have turned off any ad-blockers.

- Make sure you are not signed into hulu.

- Make sure that you use a fresh email address if you have ever had an account.

The 1,300 swagbucks were posted almost instantly to my account after I completed the full sign up. If refreshing their page doesn't change your balance, you might try logging off and back in to see if that refreshes the balance.

3.) If you do not receive the Swagbucks right away, I would NOT CONTACT Swagbucks yet for two reasons.

A.) It might just be a glitch that resolves itsself.

and/or

B.) By complaining now you will kill this deal for other SD'ers and perhaps even stop those of us who did get it to have the credit removed. Wait a full week--7 days, before reaching out in the name of helping everyone for the holidays. There is a low chance that Swagbucks will grant the missing points because you didn't sign up for the offer that they linked to.

But if you wait, chances are a lot more people will be with you to help encourage them to honor the missing points.

If you can't wait a week if the points don't automatically appear, skip this deal because this part is risky.

(My guess is that 80%+ have gotten it to work but there is ALWAYS a risk of you being one of those who do not get them.)

Yes, we should be able to. I see "No Commercials" option ($4) is available as Add-on under Accounts> My Subscription. To clarify, I have subscribed to Hulu today using SwagBucks Link.

Please fix your post OP, you can't double dip using the amex promo..

the link for the amex promo is : http://www.hulu.com/start/amex

two completely different promos that can't be combined unfortunately.

Not sure why you could not double dip? If you get this offer and use your AMEX card, it will show up as a purchase greater than $25 from HULU and should trigger the credit. I do not think AMEX will scrutinize how you are spending the +$25.00, they just care you met the threshold limit.

I signed up for this offer and used my Amex card, paid $29.99, put in my delivery address for the Roku Express, and got the confirmation email that I'd used my Amex offer. Thanks OP!

You are right as per TnC on Amex Promo. However, someone had successfully redeemed Amex promo while making Regular Payments and not going through the link.

Please see post#115 by JaTaN on Amex thread. (Sorry, don;t know how to link to the post#115 directly).

Sorry, can you explain this more? If I just use my Amex card, will it work? I don't have a Hulu offer under my bluebird account. Or, do I start the free trial through that Amex link first or what?
