Lately, JetBlue seems to be brokering some unusual partnerships to earn points. Most notably, Amazon and Lyft join the lineup so travelers can get points whenever they shop or take a ride with either service.
In order to earn points, travelers will have to make sure they are registered with JetBlue's TrueBlue program in order to receive the benefits. The Amazon partnership is the best deal, letting members earn 3 points for every dollar spent, considering it's possible to buy everything from toilet paper to coffee there. The Lyft deal is more restricted: it only applies to airport rides and does not include Lyft Line service.
The points all eventually add up, so start collecting while you can.
The Amazon Partnership
JetBlue TrueBlue members have the opportunity to earn 3 points for every dollar spent on Amazon. There are no limitations on how many points it is possible to earn, unlike the Lyft partnership.
In order to qualify, TrueBlue members must login to their account first and then make a purchase through a unique link. (Items previously ordered do not count, obviously!) The other option for earning points is by connecting to Amazon through Fly-Fi, JetBlue's in-flight Wi-Fi, and then making a purchase. The last option requires being physically present.
In a nutshell:
- Earn 3 points for every $1 spent.
- Login to unique account link or through Fly-Fi first
- Purchase item within 24 hours
The Lyft Partnership
It is also possible to earn 30 TrueBlue points for every Lyft ride taken to the airport by connecting the two accounts. (That means rides in between neighborhoods do not count!)
Both partners are capping the number of points at 1,200 annually, which roughly works out to 40 rides. New members can get 750 points instead on their first ride. It must be a Lyft Classic, Premier, or Plus ride. Unfortunately, Line rides don't count, which kinda makes this deal a bummer in certain regards.
In a nutshell:
- Earn 30 points per Lyft ride—up to 1,200 points annually (40 rides per year).
- First-time Lyft customers get 750 points instead by signing up via this page
- Lyft Lines do not count.
