Earn Amex Points when signing up for Disney+

Be sure to use the right credit card and shopping portal when signing up for Disney+.

Disney+ has taken over headlines over the last few days as the ability to watch a plethora of childhood shows and Disney movies became reality.

Disney finally released its long-awaited streaming service that includes all Disney movies and shows, Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar movies. The Verge published a list of everything on the platform – it’s impressive, to say the least.

But, before you sign up for Disney+, make sure you’re maximizing the purchase and earn the right points and miles.

There are three different Disney+ Subscriptions:

  • Monthly – Disney+ ($6.99/month)
  • Annual Membership – Disney+ ($69.99/year)
  • Bundle – Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ ($12.99/month)

Maximize your Disney+ Subscription

Thankfully, there are a few ways to maximize your Disney+ subscription through different shopping portals and credit cards.

Use a credit card that earns a bonus

Using a credit card that will earn more than one point per dollar is the best way to maximize your purchase for Disney+.

The Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express earns 3% cash back on every purchase which is as good as you can do.

However, if you want to earn points toward travel, the Citi Premier Card earns 2x Citi ThankYou Points on entertainment. Remember, you can use just 15k Citi ThankYou Points to fly to Hawaii from anywhere in the United States.

Similarly, the Chase Freedom Unlimited earns 1.5% cash back on all purchases, but if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Sapphire Reserve, that cash back can be used as Chase Ultimate Rewards.

Use Rakuten to earn Membership Rewards

As we wrote about recently, Rakuten users can now earn Membership Rewards when using the shopping portal.

Rakuten is offering the following bonuses. Remember, you need to use the Rakuten link on their portal OR use their browser extension.

Users can earn American Express Membership Rewards when signing up for Disney+ when using the Rakuten shopping portal.
  • Monthly – $5.00 or 500 American Express Membership Rewards
  • Annual Membership – $10.00 or 1,000 American Express Membership Rewards
  • Bundle – $7.50 or 750 American Express Membership Rewards

If you aren’t a member of Rakuten, you can sign-up by using our link!

Final Thoughts

If you were thinking about signing up for Disney+, be sure you use the right credit card and Rakuten. There’s no reason not to earn either cashback or American Express Membership Rewards points for your purchase.

Happy watching!
