Update: The Amex Offer expires on 3/31/21 and Peacock Premium comes with a 7-day free trial. You’ll need to sign up for Peacock Premium by 1/24/21 at the latest to have your 3rd monthly charge post by 3/31 and trigger the Amex credit.
Peacock TV is NBC’s new streaming service that launched in July, 2020. It offers movies, past TV shows like The Office and 30 Rock and new originals like the Saved By The Bell reboot. It also offers live sports like Premier League Football.
By stacking an Amex Offer and cashback from Rakuten, you might be eligible for 3 free months of Peacock Premium AND earn $6 cashback.
Check your American Express cards for an Amex Offer for Peacock TV.
Add the offer to your card and get $4.99 back as a one-time monthly statement credit, for up to 3 months, by using your enrolled Card to spend at least $4.99.
This credit is enough to get you the first 3 months of Peacock Premium for free–in addition to the 1 week free preview.
If you’re unfamiliar with Amex Offers, you can read my primer here.
Before subscribing to Peacock, head over to Rakuten. They’re offering $6 cash back when you sign up for Peacock via their portal.
If you don’t already have a Rakuten account, use my referral link and you can earn $20 after you spend $20 within 90 days.
When you sign up for Peacock, make sure you use the American Express card that has the Amex Offer as your payment method.
The End Game
That’s all there is to it. Your Amex card will be charged $4.99 per month. The Amex Offer statement credit will offset that. And you’ll have $6 in your Rakuten cash back account. All that’s left is to enjoy binge watching The Office.
After 3 months, you can cancel your Peacock subscription that cost you nothing AND earned you $6 cash back from Rakuten. Or you can continue the service if you enjoy it.
