Save $40 On Your Next JetBlue Ticket With Amex Offers

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

  1. Only one of my cards has the offer. Except mine is spend $200+, earn an additional 4,000 MR points.

    @Lucky, I’ve always wondered why their cards that aren’t co-branded have different offers. Do you know why this is?

  2. 4 cards; no offer. But I can save $5 on a $75 Hilton gift card – yea!

    I probably save ~$50 annually on offers. Then again, I don’t shop at Bergdorf Goodman, etc.

    Wish there were better ones on restaurants, travel, grocery, etc.

  3. I’m more curious as to how to get offers that earn additional MR points instead of cash back. I feel like 90% of the offers I get are for cash back and not MR points.

  4. @Lucky. Just curious why you recommend the Amex Platinum to buy airfare instead of the Jetblue Plus, CSR, Citi Prestige etc. I know it earns more but the lack of trip delay/cancellation is a major deterrent for me. Especially after witnessing the Delta debacle recently.

  5. @Sean: I agree. I utilized the Citi Prestige Trip Delay coverage last month during the winter snowstorms. Received the entire $500 benefit that covered two nights at hotel. I’ve decided to move all my airfare from the Platinum to the Citi Prestige. The extra 2 points earned on the Platinum doesn’t come close to the cash benefit of the Citi Prestige if you utilize the delay coverage even once. You’d have to spend $12.5K to $25K in airfare on the Platinum (depending on how you value Amex points) to equal a single $500 trip delay benefit.

  6. @Sean @ymx I’m in the camp of using prestige for winter flights (either departing airport or destination) and Amex plat otherwise. Have had great success with Prestige delay insurance (and with Chase Car insurance) where that plays a big factor for me, but I take a little more of a gamble on warm weather flights. As you point out with the math though, one insurance claim would offset a substantial amount worth of marginal points gained, so maybe the Amex Platinum isn’t worth the gamble.

  7. Terms on the JetBlue offer state “spend a minimum of $200+ in one or more transactions to purchase airline tickets directly from JetBlue”…

    Am I misreading that to mean multiple transactions totaling $200+ qualify?

  8. I didn’t get any on all my cards. Maybe I shouldn’t have selected JetBlue for my Platinum travel credit.

  9. @Tom – Don’t feel too bad, didn’t get it on any of my 6 cards and I chose AS for my airlines.

  10. No offer for me either. This would have been nice since I travel quite a bit with jetblue.

    The one thing I hate about some amex rewards are the ones that you don’t get credit for until after the offer expires. I had one for hotel storm from last Nov and its been expired by 2 weeks now and still no credit. I’ll have to dig up my reservation and figure out what happened to my credit.

  11. I got the Amex offer on my card but now it seems to have disappeared (even though I spent 200$ on B6). Has anyone else seen this happen to them? Was the offer a mistake? Should I complain to American Express.

  12. @Barry:
    I had the same issue. It reappeared in my redeemed offers after a couple of days. Wait for 2 days. If you still don’t see it you can talk to Amex Customer care.

  13. Is this one an instant credit or no? I’ve seen that on some Amex offers but I also receive odd credits here and there months after the actual purchase. I bought a B6 ticket for two passengers with Even More Space for a total of about $330 a few days ago. My Amex activity shows it broken down to four entries, none of them individually over $200. I’d assume I’m eligible for this because *my* one transaction is over $200, it’s just Amex who chose to turn it into 4 entries.
