Stack for great deal on AppleTV 4K

The Tactical Traveler at Travel with Grant posted a great deal yesterday that appears to still be alive — an Apple 4K TV + 3 months of DirecTV Now service for as low as $48 if you can complete a full stack (or $83 if not). See his post for complete details, but here is a basic rundown.

The Deal

  • Prepay $105 for 3 months of DirecTV now and receive a free Apple TV 4K
  • Go through for $22 cash back (if you don’t yet have an account, feel free to sign up with our Frequent Miler referral link with our thanks)
  • Use Bank of America deal for additional $35 back if you have it

Key Terms

  • New DirecTV Now subscribers only
  • Only available in the US (excludes Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands)
  • Offer limited to 1 per account, 2 per billing address

Quick Thoughts

The best deal is if you happen to have the Bank of America offer for an additional $35 back (I don’t, but The Tactical Traveler includes details). Even if not, scoring an Apple TV 4K for a net $83 (presumably plus tax) is a great deal. The device alone goes for $180 on Amazon.

A quick look at my local Craigslist shows that people are asking $140-$150 for the device. That price will likely take a bit of a dive when the market gets flooded with these, but I imagine it will rebound. The terms limit you to 1 per DirecTV Now account and 2 per billing address. If you order two and are able to sell one for a bit of a profit, that might help make up for not having the Bank of America deal. Also note that paying with your Ink Cash or Ink Plus (no longer available to new applicants) would yield 5x on the full purchase price before BeFrugal cashback.

If you value the DirecTV Now streaming service at all, this deal is a great way to get a nice discount on an Apple TV.

Ink Cash, which is available to new applicants, would also yield 5x on this purchase.


How about the 5% category for Freedom? I think you can get 5% back for cable services, is DirectTV NOW included?


Yep. It’s showing up for me as 5x.


Yep – and Ink Preferred is offering 5x, as well as it’s considered TV service.

PNC has this offer as well. I was disappointed when I saw only one of my BOA cards had it, but got pumped when I saw my PNC card had the same offer.

Now I have the max, 2 per address.


Presumably you could pay your bill with a different card each month, and thereby bring down the cost of this deal even more.

Question regarding the Amazon link – when I log in to JetBlue, it says to click below for my personalized Amazon link, but doesn’t seem personalized, to be honest.

Even still, I log into JetBlue first, then click the Amazon link, then make the purchase. Then, order it through Smile, to donate to charity.

Is there another specialized link that I should be seeing? Tried in Chrome and Firefox and see the same URL.



Would BeFrugal pay out twice for two devices, or only once?


Thanks for Sharing, i tried back in Feb and they never paid $22 cash back. I followed all the steps. I reached out to customer service in and waiting for response. I think is also offering $22 referral
