Between promotions like a $15 discount by using just one Chase Ultimate Rewards point and 5x bonus points on Amazon through Amex Offers, there are several ways to save on your Amazon purchases this Prime Day.

However, if you’re flying with JetBlue — both on Prime Day (Oct. 13 and 14) and beyond — you can earn even greater rewards.

Earning 3x JetBlue points on Amazon purchases

JetBlue flyers can earn 3 TrueBlue points per dollar when shopping on Amazon in-flight using the carrier’s free Fly-Fi internet. All you need to do is log in to Fly-Fi using the name and email associated with your TrueBlue account, then go to Amazon.com to shop and earn on eligible products.

Note, this offer is not valid when using the Amazon mobile app, so you want to ensure you’re shopping on Amazon.com through a web browser when shopping with your mobile device.

If you log in to Fly-Fi using the “Guest Access” option, you’ll need to click on the Amazon carousel ad that appears on the landing page to be redirected to the TrueBlue sign-in/sign-up page to shop and earn TrueBlue points.

Bottom line

While there are a few portals that offer cash back for Amazon purchases in certain categories, this is essentially the only way you could earn airline miles for nearly all Amazon purchases. JetBlue used to allow you to earn points for Amazon purchases through a portal from the ground, but that option is no longer available. You can still earn JetBlue points for purchases from other merchants through its ShopTrue shopping portal.

As a reminder, you’ll want to maximize your rewards on Amazon purchases by using a credit card such as the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa SignatureChase Freedom Unlimited, Citi® Double Cash Card or The Blue Business®️ Plus Credit Card from American Express. Check out this post for a deeper dive into the best cards for Amazon purchases — not only on Prime Day but every day of the year.

The information for the Amazon Prime Visa has been collected independently by The Points Guy. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.
