Earn 3 JetBlue Points Per Dollar on All Amazon Purchases!
So this is news. You can now earn 3 Jetblue miles per dollar on ALL Amazon purchases.
Amazon has a lot of rules for their affiliates, and they don’t typically allow incentivizing the use of their shopping link. The affiliate link is meant for publishers referring others to the Amazon site; it’s not meant to pass the cash to the consumer. They do allow some big shopping portals to pass on savings to the consumer on select product categories, often categories like clothing or jewelry, depending on which categories Amazon is trying to promote and incentivize.
There was one point when we could earn 5% back on all Amazon purchases by going through the Givingassistant portal due to a special exception they had (I guess it had to do with their charitable affiliations), but that didn’t last too long.
Now, it’s possible to earn 3 JetBlue miles per dollar on almost all Amazon purchases!
We appreciate when people use our Amazon link, but if you have use for Jetblue points, that’s currently the best deal for you. Make sure to click on your unique Jetblue link before shopping, or even bookmark that link for easy access.
I wonder if this will open the floodgates for other portals to begin offering points for Amazon purchases. It’s unlikely that cashback portals will be able to offer this, but there’s a chance other mileage portals will cut a deal with Amazon which would really be awesome! I’ll hazard a guess that there’s some sort of reciprocal partnership here between Amazon and Jetblue.
The Fine Print
- Allow 60 days after purchase ships for miles to post
- No TrueBlue points for postage/handling or tax
