Earn JetBlue Points For Shopping On Amazon
Yesterday, JetBlue announced a new route from Minneapolis to Boston. Being MSP is my home airport, I’m excited for this news on a number of fronts. Though I have never flown on JetBlue metal, I have been earning points in their TrueBlue rewards program for about a year, just for shopping at Amazon.
Earning Points For Shopping On Amazon
Back in 2016, JetBlue and Amazon announced a partnership in which they offer 3X TrueBlue points for every dollar spent with Amazon. To earn the 3X bonus points per dollar spent, you either have to get to Amazon through your unique JetBlue link, or make the purchase inflight with the JetBlue Fly-Fi service.
Generally, this program works the same way other shopping portals do, and there is no additional cost to earn these points. When you get to Amazon through the JetBlue link, your activity will be tracked via cookies on your computer for up to 24 hours. Any purchases made during that time frame will qualify for the additional points. These are literally free points for shopping you are going to do anyhow!
Thrifty Tip #1: Save your unique JetBlue Amazon link in your browser, as this will make it easy to pull up when you need to make a purchase on Amazon.
Thrifty Tip #2: The 3X TrueBlue points earned are in addition to any other points you would earn through your normal credit card spend. This is a great opportunity for maximizing your points earning potential for shopping at Amazon.
Thrifty Tip #3: As of 2013, JetBlue’s TrueBlue points do not expire. You can earn them and not worry about losing them before you are ready to use them.

I am a big proponent of online shopping portals and services like Ebates. It used to pain me a bit to shop on Amazon as they historically have not played well with portal bonuses. I have been using the JetBlue portal to do my shopping on Amazon since last December, with no immediate plans to use the points. With JetBlue announcing their new Minneapolis service, these points just became much more valuable for me. Don’t wait! Start earning TrueBlue points on Amazon today!
