If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you’ll be able to stream thousands of movies and TV episodes for free on JetBlue flights later this year. Though a new partnership, Prime members will have access to Amazon’s comprehensive library through JetBlue’s speedy Fly-Fi internet, which will be available on all of the airline’s Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft by the end of the year (and on the Embraer E190 for regional flights at some point in 2016). Prime members will be able to access Amazon’s streaming library through the airline’s Fly-Fi Hub, and non-members who want to stream on-demand content will be able to buy and rent titles from the Amazon Instant Video store.

When the program launches later this year, Prime members will also have access to tunes via Prime Music, and all JetBlue customers will be able to purchase and download songs—and earn TrueBlue points for purchases in specific categories—in flight.

For frequent JetBlue travelers, this news couldn’t have come soon enough, as the airline currently doesn’t offer on-demand entertainment. Travelers can watch live programming via DirecTV, and a handful of new releases are available for purchase on many flights, though they begin shortly after takeoff without an option to start or pause on your own schedule. And, with the exception of Mint and economy on the airline’s new A321, those (aging) seat-back screens leave a lot to be desired.

Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express

With some great bonus categories and an annual fee that’s waived for the first year, the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card has a lot going for it. If you don’t have PRG, now’s as good a time as any to add it to your wallet, as Amex added some great new benefits several months back.
