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
  • If you are on a Jetblue flight, you can earn the 3x even without clicking on your unique link by Connecting to Amazon through Fly-Fi; when not in-flight you need to click on your unique link

The following products do not earn points:

  • Gift cards and reloads
  • 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 us;
  • Any product, including games and other applications, sold through the Amazon Appstore for Android;
  • Any product sold on fresh.amazon.com;
  • Restaurant takeout;
  • 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

So it says purchase within 24 hours to get credit. I wonder if that means you can double dip with a cashback portal since it tracks for so long?

Will have to test.

Doubtful, would override the cookie.

Doesn’t seem to work. It just takes me to my regular TrueBlue member page

I had to log out of my JetBlue account and then click the link again. Then it took me to the right page.

Nope nope nope. DoC “portal” all the way please.

Combined with payments made on GCs bought via 5x Staples (approx 7.5%) this is pretty darn good. Of course you can get 15-20% using bitcoin on purse.io is a game changer. It’s not hard.

Is there a referral bonus to sign up a jet blue account?

One other interesting note(unless I missed it) is that gift cards are not specifically excluded from the terms and conditions of earning points. I’m going to do a test to see if i do get the points for an Amazon GC.

In the past, I had problems getting portal cashback for purchases made with a gc from Amazon. That exclusion doesn’t appear on the list (yet) so it might work and potentially be a double dip possibility.

JB pts combined with the amex plat 3x MR pts for Amazon purchases makes this a great deal.

Johnny

Are giftcards excluded from this? Would be huge to get credit card points and 3x trueblue miles with that combination.

Do you know if this will work using smile.amazon.com to make a donation?

William Charles

Think so as that did still stack when using our links.

in the last few months, none of my purchases have gotten the miles auto, JetBlue claimed via email that smile orders DON’T qualify

If I click on the link you reference and sign in to my JetBlue account, I don’t see anything about Amazon. Is this targeted? I’ve searched the site and don’t see anything.

William Charles

Try signing in and out and clicking on the link, others got it to work this way.

I just made a purchase with my Discover card, then another with my GC balance. We’ll see what gives miles and what doesn’t.

I couldn’t get this to work on mobile. Anybody have luck with that?

I have not received any kind of confirmation for pending JetBlue points for my Amazon purchases… no email confirmations nor any record on the shopping portal site. Has anyone else seen confirmation of pending points, or do we all just have to wait 60 days and watch for the points to appear in our accounts??

Dan
Dan

JetBlue has done a horrible job of giving confirmation for miles earned. I suggest keeping track of your points and complaining if you don’t get yours. Hold them accountable so maybe they will improve their processes/transparency.

Has anyone seen anything in this world that has any indication that any purchases would eventually translate to Jetblue points? If so please share, thanks!

Dan

Made about $700 in purchases on Amazon going thru JetBlue link. Nothing posted yet but it says it could take 60 days to reflect on your account. i’m keeping track of all my purchases just in case and will complain if I don’t get my miles.

Just curious if anyone has seen anything yet. I have been using the link religously, seriuosly, just hoping based on faith, that I will see points one day,

Ditto… spent at least $3-4K so…..

I’m in same boat. I click on the Jetblue link every order, but the lack of confirmation and the 60 day waiting game isn’t best system. While I can track purchases, how do I prove I clicked link first…let’s hope this works!
