JetBlue has just announced a cool new partnership with Amazon, where they’re offering three bonus TrueBlue points per dollar spent with Amazon.
In order to earn the three bonus points per dollar spent you either have to go through the unique JetBlue link on this page, or make the purchase inflight with JetBlue through their Fly-Fi service. This works the same way as a shopping portal, meaning that there are cookies on your computer for 24 hours after you log in through the JetBlue Amazon link, so any purchases made during that time should qualify for bonus points.
You can always just save your customized JetBlue Amazon link in your browser, making it easy to return to every time you want to make an Amazon purchase.
These points are in addition to any other points you may earn through credit card spend with Amazon. Furthermore, you can maximize the 3x JetBlue points you’re earning on your purchase by having JetBlue Plus Card, which offers a 10% refund on points redeemed, meaning you’d be earning the equivalent of ~3.3 points per dollar spent.
Bonus TrueBlue points will be credited to your JetBlue account within 60 days of when your purchase is shipped (though I suspect in practice they’ll typically post much faster than that).
The following products are excluded from earning points through this partnership:
- Any product or service sold on a site linked to from the Amazon Site (e.g., a product or service listed through our “Product Ads” program or sold on a site linked to from a banner ad, sponsored link, or other link displayed on the Amazon Site);
- Any wireless service plan offered through the Amazon Site and not sold or fulfilled by us;
- Any product, including games and other applications, sold through the Amazon Appstore for Android;
- Any product sold on fresh.amazon.com;
- Restaurant takeout;
- Any alcoholic beverage product;
- Any digital Kindle product purchased as a subscription (e.g., Kindle newspaper subscriptions, magazine subscriptions, blog subscriptions, etc.);
- Any free trial subscription
A lot of people make their everyday purchases through Amazon, so this is a great way to pick up to an additional ~5% return on your Amazon purchases (I value TrueBlue points at ~1.5 cents each). You just have to remember to go through the specific JetBlue link every time you make a purchase.
Do you plan on picking up an extra three JetBlue points per dollar spent with Amazon?
