Thanks for the reminder. I just grabbed a 12-month card for $32.

Are there any deals like that for other streaming companies? I know you can occasionally find iTunes cards for 25% Off.

OMG how did I never know of these, I've been a member for years! Went to eBay (I sold something and I got a $10 eBay coupon which I used to buy a $10 giftcard (exp vs. no expiration) to eBay) which I used to buy a $29.22 one from China for a total of $19.22 for a whole year vs. $95.88 that I've been paying. The seller had great reviews so I decided to go for it. Got it in about 30 minutes and it worked without a glitch. Thanks you just saved me $76.66!! I was trying to figure out what to spend those $10 on.

There were rumors that a few people had their subscriptions canned from a few sources which is why I added the stake out the reviews, but it always happens within the first few days. Mine, my bosses and a few friends have all been fine though and we're all 4 or so months into it.

Thank you all for posting this information about the discounted 12 month Hulu Plus code on Ebay. My subscription was going to auto renew tomorrow and luckily I saw this info just in time. I went to Ebay, found a 100% merchant who was selling the code and purchased it for $35. Just saved me $60.88 for the entire year.

Edit: Check that, so they actually billed me for the month of April. I guess they billed me East coast time. No biggie. My new card takes into effect in May. So my next billing will be May of 2016.

No problem! Hopefully it works out well for everybody. It is a huge money saver for sure, frankly makes Hulu a no brainer.

I wish I'd known about this before I signed up to pay for the service every month! Don't know how the hell I missed it.

You can still do this. Just buy it and you enter it into your account extending it to 12 months without payments. I've been a Hulu Plus customer for years.

Yeah, I'm a monthly subscriber, adding a gift card just changes the line: Next Payment - April, 2015 to Next Payment - April, 2016.

By the way there's no such thing as a yearly subscriber
