You Can Get a Free Motley Fool Subscription, But No Profit Through Shopping Portals

American Express has an Amex Offer that gets you a free subscription to Motely Fool. You get a one-time $99 statement credit after using your enrolled eligible Card to make a single subscription-based purchase of $99+ online at The Motley Fool or at by 5/8/2021.

But when that offer came out you could also get $75 to $80 back from several shopping portals such as Swagbucks, Chase and others. That would make it a profitable deal since the subscription itself was free with the Amex Offer. But soon after the Amex Offer came out, shopping portals started removing the big cashback offers.

Now a representative from The Motley Fool, reached out to us to let us know that you can no longer stack the offers from shopping portals with the Amex Offer. Below is the email we received from The Motley Fool’s business development team:

Swagbucks and other loyalty programs are either pausing their campaigns during the Amex campaign or have updated their terms and conditions so their cash back or rewards cannot be combined with other offers.

Obviously, we’re thrilled with anyone who wants to join our services and learn about The Motley Fool approach to investing, and we want to incentivize folks to give us a try.

But for those interested in stacking offers, best to look elsewhere now, as there is no longer a double dipping opportunity.

From a quick look at several shopping portals, it looks like they have already removed the offers for The Motely Fool.


If you did this deal when portals were showing a bonus for The Motley Fool, then you should get the bonus. But keep an eye out to make sure that you get the cashback or points that you are supposed to.

You can still use the Amex Offer to get a free Motley Fool subscription, but there’s no longer a moneymaking opportunity.

  1. I received a deal from motley for $98 for two years. This is under the $99 threshold needed, but with tax, it would be over. Is tax included in the necessary spend or is this only pretax? Thank you!

  2. Correction, and very important – those higher miles today are only on premium, expensive Motley products, not the annual subscription….
