When you subscribe to the Motley Fool through an online shopping portal, you can earn up to 5,000 miles or $100 cash back, depending on which portal you choose.

There Are Lots of Miles, Points, and Cash Bonuses to Choose From

As you can see, American Airlines offers the biggest miles payout for a Motley Fool subscription.

Here are the quick details you need to know:

  • Bonus only valid for 1 subscription per loyalty account number
  • NOT valid for any free products, trials, subscriptions, etc.
  • NOT valid on cash equivalents like gift cards
  • Your subscription needs to be active for 45+ days to qualify
  • You can NOT combine this deal with other coupons or discount codes not found on the site

Plus, Frequent Miler points out another bonus that’s even better!  If you go to RebatesMe, you can earn $100 cash back!

There are a couple rumors about this deal.  First, because subscriptions start at $19 per month, and you need to keep your account open for 45 days, it appears you’ll need to pay for at least 2 months to earn this bonus (for a total of $38).  But some say it can be done for a single payment of $19.

Second, because the terms & conditions say the bonus is valid for 1 subscription per loyalty account number, it sounds as if you can get the bonus with each of your loyalty accounts (American Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest, etc.).  I can’t personally guarantee either of these, but let us know if you’ve had experience either way!

Earning $100 or 5,000 miles for paying $38 is pretty sweet.  To add a bit of context, it costs 7,500 American Airlines miles for a short-haul one-way flight, like between Columbus and New York.  So 5,000 miles is a nice chunk!

Just remember to cancel your subscription after 45 days to avoid paying more than the promotion requires.  And who knows, you could end up loving Motley Fool!

Let us know if you pounce on this deal!

AAdvantage still works as described. Alaska, Southwest, and RebatesMe all require ANNUAL CONTRACT at $99 per year.

Has anyone gone through the process of cancelling with Motley Fool before? There have been similar offers with Wall St Journal and the option to cancel isn’t self serve, you have to contact them…

Southwest had a promotion running recently for 5400 points instead of 3600. I got my points after a week or so but plan on keeping the subscription for at least 2 months to comply with the terms. It was a great deal!

Awesome! Glad to know it worked out!

I’ve done it before and can confirm the points posted after a week or so. I just used privacy.com and used a single time use virtual card #.

That’s great to know, thank you for sharing!
