Late last year Amazon and JetBlue announced a partnership, that allows TrueBlue members to earn bonus points for purchases they make on Amazon. Through this partnership you can earn three points per dollar spent with Amazon, though you do have to register and then follow a specific link every time you make an Amazon purchase in order to be eligible.
As an extension of this partnership, there’s an even further promotion at the moment for JetBlue TrueBlue members. You can earn 3,000 bonus points if you join Amazon Prime by 11:59PM ET on Monday, May 8, 2017.
An Amazon Prime membership costs $99 per year, meaning that you’re earning about 30 points per dollar spent on your Prime membership. Put another way, TrueBlue points can be redeemed for ~1.5 cents each towards the cost of a ticket on JetBlue, so that gets you ~$45 worth of travel (and even more if you have the JetBlue Plus Card, since it offers a refund of 10% of redeemed points).
Each member can take advantage of this at most once, and those who have had Prime memberships in the past aren’t eligible, and also buying a gift membership isn’t eligible.
For those of you not familiar with Amazon Prime, here’s how it’s described:
Amazon Prime is a membership program offered by Amazon that offers subscribers free two-day shipping on over 50 million items, unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows with Prime Video, unlimited streaming of millions of songs and thousands of playlists and free Kindle e-books, unlimited photo storage, and much more. Also, Prime members can access their benefits onboard all JetBlue flights in the U.S.
I have a Prime membership and use it exclusively for free two day shipping, and find it to absolutely be worthwhile. If you don’t yet have a Prime membership, this is a way to get almost half of the cost back in the form of points.
Is anyone signing up for a Prime membership as a result of this deal?
