Ends Today: $440 Off Hydrow With AMEX Offers; Rowing Around The World And At Home

Update: The $440 AMEX Offer ends today!

I love kayaking.

Nearly 13 years ago, Mimi and I kayaked to a sandbar off Oahu’s Windward coast on our month-long Hawaiian honeymoon:


A year later we kayaked and hiked to Kauai’s Secret Falls:


In 2015 I checked off a bucket list item when I flew the Island Hopper with DDF member AJK, where we kayaked the stunning waters of Palau:



2016 in Maui, with whales and turtles popping up to give us a show:


In 2018 I got to check off another bucket list item when I kayaked past penguins and whales in the icy waters of Antarctica together with DDF member aussiebochur:



It’s also a great way to exercise, but alas, I don’t live in Hawaii, Palau, or Antarctica.

When I saw an AMEX Offer for $440 off $2,199 at Hydrow I did some research into it.

It’s an immersive rowing machine with a built in screen with instructors that row in scenic spots that will convince you that you’re right there with them.

The machine isn’t cheap and there’s a $38 monthly fee to boot for access to live and recorded classes.

I never thought I’d be the target market for something like this, but with a 30 day free trial and free return shipping, I took a flyer on it. If it can make exercising fun enough for me to use it daily, then it will be worth the expense.

The purchase will also trigger a $5 Shop Small credit. Hey, every penny counts 😀

If you don’t see the $440 AMEX Offer, try using the desktop site and if you have 100 AMEX Offers available, try saving random offers to your account to get under 100 available offers. I did that, logged out, and logged back again, and then the Hydrow offer showed up on my preferred AMEX.

My card was charged the same day as the order was made, so you shouldn’t have an issue getting the credit.

I’ve only had the machine for a week, and so far so good. It really does feel like you’ve been transported onto a scenic river. You can’t dip your hands into the water, but this is definitely the next best thing and it keeps you coming back for more.

It’s also gamified, so you compete against fellow rowers and you can earn rewards for meeting milestones. If I’d earn frequent flyer miles instead of water bottles, I’d have hit 100K meters in no time 😀

Will I keep it? That depends if I’m still using and enjoying it in 3 weeks, but it’s looking pretty great so far.

Do you use a Hydrow, Peloton, or Mirror? Do you find it worth the expense?

I have a treadmill that i hang clothes on


How good is the return policy?

Dryid relative

Use a Concept 2 rower. Best rower around. Have tried the water based and magnetic rowers and nothing beats the catch on the fan based.


+1 for Concept2


Agreed 100% and the rogue echo bike


Any peloton membership coupons?


Bummer, only on my Plat, would have worked nicely toward hitting 6Mo/$10k/100kMR SUB on Biz Plat (6mo Covid).

The wall mount – seems like a space saver – I prefer elliptical/rowing machines over treadmills -better core, low impact and can use for anaerobic HITT workouts.


We kayaked off La Jolla in San Diego a few years ago. Needed to rent wetsuits because the water was quite cold. Pretty much everyone had fun, especially the younger ones that didn’t row too hard and left most of the rowing to the adult in their kayak. And I have to say, we all slept REALLY well that night (after dinner at the kosher Ralph’s store near La Jolla). It’s got to be great exercise!


Looking to buy a treadmill. Email yoni at greatyanktix@yahoo.com


Please reach out to @Michael above


then i wont have a place to hang my clothes


I’m more interested in deals on donuts


Not sure why the tangent on why you love kayaking so much… It’s not at all the same workout as rowing… You could just as well have told us how much you like surfing…


I bought one to try it is a great machine if you will do it

You need to pay $39 a month for service
it also needs internet or wifi to run….

you really need to think twice about the cost….
I am returning mine


Nothing beats getting your a** outside and biking real road miles, kayaking on real water or running or hiking a real trail. Ask Mimi about the fate of the NordicTrack.


Just ordered, gonna try it, but I will return if I don’t feel I will be using it allot after trial


Any update? Do you still have it/use it?


Is there an update on it now? Do you still have it and use it?


@Dan, you kept it? Still like it/use it?
