DirecTV NOW has a promo, your first month is $10 for the $35 tier. (technically $25 off any plan) code BDAY2017.
Plenty of portals still paying out on DIRECTV NOW. I used MrRebates, $20 for new sign ups. Ebates is $16, but I don’t prefer them anymore. I couldn’t use TCB because I previously used them 2x already and don’t want to risk CB not posting. Befrugal is another choice but I don’t like their payout minimums.
Worst case this is a $10 money maker via MrRebates.
Sweeten the deal:
BofA is starting to show a $35 Cash back BankAmerideal for DirecTV now. The wording says you need a $35 charge to hit your card before 12/23. In the past similar wording for the hulu deal ($7.99 charge must hit card, must be new customer) was not enforced for me. My recurring $5.99 charge from Hulu triggered that deal. I am pretty optimistic that this $10 first month charge will trigger the $35 Amerideal.
+35 Bank of America
Makes this a potential $45 money maker for month one.
