Would you like to get paid to sit in front of your TV for two months?

It’s not that simple, but this deal is almost that good.

When you sign up for a new Hulu subscription, you’ll receive a $20 Visa gift card. And with plans starting at $7.99 per month, you could essentially make a profit on your first two months flipping through Hulu.

Even if you’re a former Hulu subscriber, you may be able to take advantage of this offer.

How to Get a Visa Gift Card for Signing Up for Hulu

Sign up for any Hulu subscription. The cheapest option, the “limited commercials” plan, costs $7.99 per month, plus tax, depending on your location. Create an account and enter your payment information.

And you’re done! About 45 days after you subscribe, you’ll get a $20 Visa gift card at your billing address.

Follow me on the math here: Pay $15.98 for two months of streaming TV and movies. Before the second month even ends, you’ll receive $20. That’s a profit of $4.02.

You could cancel your subscription at that point and run off with your extra $4.02. But winter is here.

Maybe splurge on a third month of Hulu and put that extra four bucks toward it.
