3000 JetBlue Points for Amazon Prime Plus 3 Points Per Dollar for Amazon Spend

Amazon will give you 3000 JetBlue TrueBlue points for joining Prime by May 8. (HT: Wandering Aramean)

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.

This is for new Prime memberships only. You can only earn this bonus once, for a $99+tax membership. And this is for your own prime membership, not for gifting prime.

I value JetBlue points at 1.3 cents apiece, so that’s a really strong rebate on your first Amazon Prime signup.

In fact JetBlue also has ongoing earning with Amazon of 3 points per dollar. (Normally the signup offer for Prime is therefore just 3 points per dollar.) You should be earning points for what you buy at Amazon anyway.

This is the best general offer for Amazon, though in certain purchase categories you can earn 3% or 5% back. I see 3 JetBlue TrueBlue points per dollar as being roughly equivalent to a 4% rebate.

  1. The link above “will give you 3000 JetBlue TrueBlue points for joining Prime” goes to trueblue but the amazon prime link there says “access denied”.

  2. When I logged in and clicked on the Amazon promo link from my jetBlue account, it says:

    Frequently asked questions

    How do I earn TrueBlue points when I shop at Amazon.com?
    It’s easy! You can earn 3 points per eligible dollar spent by clicking on your unique link above, which will prompt you to sign in to your TrueBlue account and bring you to the Amazon.com homepage. Only items added to your cart within 24 hours of clicking the unique link are eligible to earn TrueBlue points. This offer is not valid when using the Amazon mobile app. When shopping with your mobile device, please ensure you are shopping on Amazon.com through a web browser.
    ======================================

    So you have to first log onto jetBlue to get a unique link before you purchase anything on Amazon. I don’t have anything to purchase right now, but probably will this month. Am curious how long this promotion will last.

  3. @Luke Vader- yes, you have to log in first to JetBlue before shopping on Amazon. It’s an unfortunate extra step that many probably forget. The promotion’s been going on since last December and there’s debate over whether it’s permanent or limited time.
