Update: JetBlue’s partnership with Amazon was considerably scaled back on March 27, 2018, and purchases made through the JetBlue Amazon shopping portal no longer earn JetBlue points. Find out other ways to save money on Amazon. Not all is lost though – you can still earn 3x JetBlue points per dollar spent when making Amazon purchases if you’re onboard a JetBlue flight and connected to the carrier’s free Fly-Fi Wi-Fi.
JetBlue is one of my favorite airlines and I’ve been trying to earn as many TrueBlue Points as possible since I got my JetBlue Plus Card a few years ago. In my opinion, this is one of the best “insider” ways to earn additional rewards for this program, especially since JetBlue TrueBlue points do not expire.
Earning JetBlue Points For Shopping on Amazon
JetBlue and Amazon teamed up back in 2016 to offer 3 TrueBlue points per dollar spent on Amazon purchases.
There are two ways to earn, outlined below.
Note: you’ll need a TrueBlue account to participate and there are some product exclusions (see below).
1. Make Purchases With Your Unique JetBlue Amazon Link
By using your unique JetBlue link, you can earn 3 points per dollar spent on Amazon purchases.
To access your link, log in to your TrueBlue account and click on ‘Our Partners’ in the left sidebar. You’ll see Amazon listed as a partner; click the ‘Learn More’ button. Finally, click the ‘Shop & Earn’ button which will direct you to Amazon.com
To save time on future purchases, you can bookmark this link in your browser for later.
In order to earn points, the items you purchase must be added to your cart after you click through from your TrueBlue account.
So, the order of operations should be:
→ Click your unique JetBlue link which takes you to the Amazon.com homepage
→ Add items to your cart
→ Checkout and pay as you normally would
= Success! You’re on your way to earning points.
2. Make Purchases Inflight Using JetBlue Fly-Fi
You can also earn 3 points per dollar by making a purchase on Amazon.com using JetBlue’s Fly-Fi service.
If you’re on a JetBlue flight, simply log in to Fly-Fi using your TrueBlue membership and then shop at Amazon.com as you normally would to earn points.
Good To Know
- You can use any payment method accepted by Amazon (I use my Amazon Prime Card to earn 5% back)
- TrueBlue points are earned based on the purchase price, not postage/handling or tax
- If you cancel a purchase or request a refund, the TrueBlue points associated with that purchase will be removed from your account
- Earned TrueBlue points will be posted to your account at least 30 days after your purchase has been shipped
- Once posted, you’ll be able to see the date and category of each purchase that earned points
Products Excluded From Earning TrueBlue Points
While many of Amazon’s products are eligible for this partnership, there are some that are excluded.
- 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 Amazon;
- Any product, including games and other applications, sold through the Amazon Appstore for Android;
- Any product sold on fresh.amazon.com;
- Restaurant takeout;
- Amazon Gift Cards
- 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
- Any purchases made through an Amazon Business Account
If you shop on Amazon and want to earn TrueBlue points, this is a no-brainer partnership to take advantage of. There’s no additional cost to participate and the points never expire.
