Use your Plenti rewards to pay for subscriptions
Multi-store rewards are big right now, especially since they earn you free swag. Enter Plenti. The company has a partnership with the service that allows subscribers to earn points when watching qualified shows, registering their card on Hulu, referring a friend, or buying a $100 Hulu gift card that’s redeemed in six months. Those with an American Express Membership Rewards account can convert their Plenti points into Member Rewards points and apply them to eligible credit card charges. Or they can pick up an AMEX gift card and pay for their Hulu subscription.
Avoid extra Apple fees by recreating an account online
Signed up for Hulu's No Commercials plan through Apple? In the words of the immortal Biggie Smalls: "You been robbed!" Just so happens Tim Cook & Co. charge an extra fee ($2 more) to your bill due to "transaction costs associated with Apple." One way around this is by going into the settings and canceling your account, then go on to the web and create another one. You'll be able to log into your iTunes devices without any issues.
