Here’s the skinny: Amex will give you a $100 Amex statement credit if you use your registered American Express Business card to pay at least $100 to DirecTV. Don’t have DirecTV but do have an American Express Business card? You still might wanna register. More on that in a bit.
Step 1: Register your Amex Biz card(s) here by January 31st. You can register employee cards as well. I registered my Amex Business card and two employee cards on that account. Payments can be made through March 31st but you have to register all your cards by January 31st.
Step 2: Use your registered card(s) to pay $100 on your bill. I already pay my DirecTV bill automatically with a different credit card. So I simply signed into my account at DirecTV.com and made a one-time payment with my registered Amex Biz card. The $100 Amex statement credit showed up two days later. See below.
You can only get the $100 statement credit once per registered card. I don’t know what would happen if you try to prepay more than $100 in advance ($100 per registered card). If you try, let us know! As for me, I am going to use a different registered card to pay $100 in January, February and March. That’s $300 free, baby!
What if you have an Amex Biz card but don’t have DirecTV?
Register your Amex Biz card and pay $100 to your friend’s bill. You break even, but your friend saves $100! Maybe your friend splits it with you and kicks you back $50. That’s a savings for him and a little something for the effort, Lama. Gunga galunga.

Here’s a screenshot of my Amex Biz card bill. As you can see, I had no balance due. I paid $100 and received $100 credit two days later. This offer is “DirecTV for Business”. I have DirecTV at my home – which is not a business. As you can see, this worked for me!
