Still have holiday shopping to do? If you’re a member of JetBlue’s TrueBlue loyalty program, you’ll be able to earn extra points through the airline’s new shopping tie-in with Amazon.
JetBlue said the new partnership means TrueBlue members will earn three program points for every eligible dollar spent on Amazon.com when the purchase is made through the airline’s in-flight Fly-Fi Internet service, or at other times by clicking on an Amazon link when they sign into their account at www.trueblue.jetblue.com.
“The benefit begins rolling out on aircraft in December and will be installed on all aircraft by January 2017,” JetBlue said.
JetBlue has already installed the satellite-based Fly-Fi system on all of its A320s and A321s, and is expected to finish installation soon on its Embraer 190s. Last year, JetBlue announced a tie-in that allows Amazon Prime members to stream Amazon Prime Video and Prime Music programming through its Fly-Fi system.
Also today, JetBlue launched a clever 12-days-of-Christmas sale with some strikingly low $20 fares. Granted, these fares are very restricted (for example, $20 fares for SFO-Las Vegas only good on Monday, and you must pay $49 to return). But still, if you are flexible, they are CHEAP! More examples of $20 fares: Boston-New Orleans, Buffalo-Los Angeles, New York-Ft Myers. Crazy! And worth a look.
Remember what we said about cheap fares during the dead weeks? Well, it’s happening now!
