Redeem the Offer

There are two ways to start the redemption process:



  • This is an AmEx Offer benefit
  • Log into your American Express account
  • Find the Free Blinkist Premium Offer
  • Click on the “Redeem Now” button
  • Then click on the “Redeem Offer” button
  • You might have to log back into your American Express account

Create Blinkist Account:

After logging into your American Express account, you will see the following:

  • Next you will see that you will be billed $99.99 after the first year, or get the option for 1 free audiobook if you already have a Premium subscription.
  • Next you need to create a Blinkist account
  • Next, you add your billing information. At this point, I’m not sure if you have to actually use an American Express card or not – that is up to you to try.
  • Notice that it states that you are billed $0.00 for the Free 1-year trial, and that you will be charged $99.99 after the free trial.
  • Also noticed that they clearly state that “you can cancel at any time during your trial and you won’t be charged.

And that’s it … you now have your one year free trial of Blinkist Premium
