For those of you not familiar with Amex Offers, it’s a program available through most Amex cards, where different cards are eligible for different savings offers. In many cases the savings can be huge, and more than offset the annual fee on a card.
To view Amex Offers, go to the bottom of the account summary page of any American Express card, where you’ll see all the offers you’re eligible for. Most of these offers are for a discount when you spend a certain amount with a retailer, and registration is required. Over the years I’ve saved thousands of dollars with Amex Offers.
At the moment there’s a targeted Amex Offer for $40 off a $200+ JetBlue flight. The offer is valid for purchases through June 30, 2017. Add-ons you include with your ticket (like travel insurance, seat upgrades, etc.) will count towards that amount, though other purchases, like cruises, hotel bookings, car rentals, onboard purchases, etc., don’t qualify. If you take advantage of this offer, the credit should post within 90 days of June 30, 2017, though in practice should post much faster.
As stated above, this is a targeted Amex Offers deal. So there’s no guarantee one of your cards will have it. In my case, two cards are eligible for the offer — The Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card from American Express and the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express (which I’m canceling this week).
Remember that when you’re not taking advantage of this Amex Offer, you’ll want to use the JetBlue Plus Card or The Platinum Card® from American Express to buy JetBlue tickets, as those cards offer 6x points and 5x points, respectively.
The full terms of the JetBlue Amex Offers promotion is as follows:
Enrollment limited. Offer valid only on airline tickets purchased directly from JetBlue via jetblue.com, mobile app, by phone or in-person. Optional purchases such as seat upgrades, baggage fees, travel insurance, and pet fees are included if purchased at time of booking. Excludes all other purchases, such as JetBlue Cruises, hotel bookings, car rentals, shopjetblue.com purchases and on-board flight purchases. Offer is non-transferable. Must add offer to Card and use same Card to redeem. Limit 1 statement credit(s) per American Express® online account. Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 6/30/2017, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Note that American Express may not receive information about your qualifying purchase from merchant until all items from your qualifying purchase have been provided/shipped by merchant. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer. POID: CF1F:0001
