Here’s a friendly reminder if you’ve enjoyed earning JetBlue points for Amazon purchases in the past.
As of March 27, 2018 (tomorrow!), you will no longer earn JetBlue points for just any Amazon purchase. You’ll only earn bonus points for purchases made when you’re connected to the JetBlue in-flight Wi-Fi.
Here’s more about the change to the partnership between JetBlue and Amazon.
Changes to the JetBlue – Amazon Partnership
In the past, you’ve been able to earn 3 JetBlue points per $1 on all Amazon purchases. Million Mile Secrets team member Scott is a big JetBlue fan, mainly because of the extra legroom in coach. And he’s been earning lots of JetBlue points for future free flights with this promotion!
But effective tomorrow, March 27, 2018, you will only earn 3 JetBlue points per $1 shopping on Amazon while you are logged into the JetBlue in-flight WiFi. 🙁
You can still earn cash back at Amazon with a few shopping portals. But the categories are limited.
Additional Ways to Earn JetBlue Points or Save With Amazon
If you’re looking to earn more JetBlue points, remember the airline is a transfer partner of both AMEX Membership Rewards & Citi ThankYou. Or you can earn JetBlue points directly with the Barclaycard JetBlue Plus Card, Barclaycard JetBlue Card, or Barclaycard JetBlue Business Card.
If you’re looking to save on your Amazon spending, you could consider the Chase Amazon Prime Rewards Visa card. It earns 5% cash back on all Amazon & Whole Foods purchases if you’re an Amazon Prime member. And 3% cash back for everyone else.
That said, if you’re new to the miles & points hobby, I do NOT recommend applying for it. Because there are much more valuable rewards credit cards to start with. But you can get the Chase Amazon Prime Rewards Visa card even if you’re over the Chase “5/24” limit.
Starting March 27, 2018, you will only earn 3 JetBlue points per $1 on Amazon purchases if you shop while connected to the JetBlue in-flight Wi-Fi.
You can still earn cash back through a handful of shopping portals. But the portal bonuses are limited to only certain categories of purchases.
