Disney Package Added to American Express Platinum Card Digital Entertainment Credit

American Express Platinum Card users can now subscribe to Disney-owned streaming services, Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu (or, The Disney Bundle) and receive one of the benefits of using the credit card, the Digital Entertainment Credit.

What is happening:

  • Disney-owned streaming services (read: Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu) have been added to the American Express Platinum Card digital entertainment credit.
  • This means that when new subscribers to any of the services use their American Express card to pay for their subscription, they can earn up to $20 in statement credits each month, representing an annual savings of up to $240.00. .
  • This now adds Disney streaming services to their already existing services, including Audible, Peacock, SiriusXM and The New York Times.
  • To receive statement credit, American Express Platinum Card users must purchase the subscription through a participating partner’s website. If you purchase a subscription through a mobile app, the purchase will not be eligible for statement credit.
  • It is also important to note that purchases of prepaid subscriptions are not included in this benefit. Remember that deal you might get when Disney+ launches where you can prepay for those first three years? Yeah, it won’t qualify for that.
  • Qualifying purchases made by both Basic Members and Additional Members are covered. However, statement credits for qualifying purchases cannot exceed $20 on the card account per month, for a total of $240 per calendar year.
  • According to the official American Express website, if you already have a subscription and are being billed by a third party (like Apple), you can still receive the credit, but you will need to subscribe directly from a participating partner at the cost of subscription then in effect.
