There are currently a number of stackable offers which can make for a rewarding purchase when ordering pre-prepared meals from Sunbasket.
This could be particularly useful if you’re looking to earn status with American Airlines due to a boosted rate through their shopping portal, but other portals will be a better option if you’re not seeking status.
- Earn 3,700 American Airlines AAdvantage miles when ordering from Sunbasket after clicking through from the American Airlines shopping portal.
- Direct link to offer.
- Eligible for new customers’ first order only.
- Not eligible on any free products, trials, services, memberships, subscriptions and retailer marketing subscriptions.
- Not eligible on purchases made with coupon or discount codes that are not found on this site.
- Not eligible on gift cards, gift certificates or any other similar cash equivalents. Purchases made with a gift card may be ineligible.
If you’re not familiar with Sunbasket, it’s a meal subscription service. It’s different to services like Home Chef and HelloFresh because rather than you being sent the ingredients for you to make the meals yourself, the meals come pre-prepared and so all you need to do is heat them up.
My wife and I tried it out last summer when Swagbucks was offering $75 cashback on your first order and there was an Amex Offer. The meals were fine seeing as they were free based on the cashback and statement credit, but I wouldn’t subscribe to them regularly as they were fairly pricey for what they are.
The American Airlines shopping portal normally offers 3,000 bonus miles on your first Sunbasket order, so the current offer is almost 25% more miles than normal. That could be of particular interest if you’re trying to earn as many American Airlines Loyalty Points as possible in order to earn elite status seeing as this offer means you’d also earn 3,700 Loyalty Points on top of the redeemable miles.
You’d have to value AAdvantage miles and Loyalty Points highly enough to make this worthwhile though because the MyPoints shopping portal is currently offering 12,000 points on your first Sunbasket order. Those points can be redeemed for ~$75 of third party gift cards, so 3,700 miles + 3,700 Loyalty Points will need to be worth slightly more than an average of one cent per mile / Loyalty Point to you.
This offer is stackable in a number of different ways. The best savings come from a targeted Sunbasket Amex Offer giving $25 back on $50 spend up to three times. Note that there’s a different version of the Amex Offer giving $12 back when spending $65, so that’s obviously not as good. I was targeted for the latter version, but my wife has the former offer on her cards.
Collinson-backed shopping portals have a card-linked Sunbasket offer. Seeing as that’s a card-linked offer on a different tracking network, it’ll stack with the American Airlines (or MyPoints) shopping portal as well as the Amex Offer. You can check the latest rates here on Cashback Monitor, but at the time of writing this post you can pick one of the following:
- Caesars Rewards Marketplace – 1,080 points
- Choice Privileges Online Mall – 780 points
- Emirates Skywards – 540 miles
- JetBlue TrueBlue Shopping – 540 points
There’s another minor stack, but it won’t earn you much. The Bitmo app has a card-linked element to it and they offer one Perk Point per dollar spent with a linked card at Sunbasket. That’s only worth 0.1% back towards a future gift card purchase, so if your first order cost $50 (in order to hit the Amex Offer spending threshold), you’d earn a whole 5c. That’s obviously not worth the hassle purely for this deal, but if you buy Visa or Mastercard gift cards from Staples or Office Depot/OfficeMax, having your cards linked for those transactions can rack up the Perk Points over time.
Update: garretg has commented below to share that there’s a SimplyMiles offer for 1,000 miles when spending $65 as well as a Citi Merchant Offer for Sunbasket giving $20 back when spending $65. The SimplyMiles offer will stack with the Citi Offer, but not with the Amex Offer because SimplyMiles only works with Mastercards.
If you’re targeted for both the Citi Offer and Amex Offer, the better option will depend on if you’d rather spend $50 and get $25 back from the Amex Offer or spend $65 and get $20 back from the Citi Offer as well as 1,000 AAdvantage miles and 1,000 Loyalty Points from SimplyMiles.
Can you order Sunbasket multiple times as new user/email address using Amex credits and get 3700 a few times?
1/19 Sunbasket order hasn’t tracked yet, even though other merchants tracked quickly. I only see it in my list of recent visits with no order total. Delivery date will be 1/25
Are others seeing the same thing? Thanks
I use SunBasket on occasion stacked with Amex or Chase offers, and it definitely still offers traditional meal kit options you can cook yourself. I tend to think these are better tasting but they’re also more expensive. The pre-prepped ones are called Fresh & Ready.
3 users, 9 cards — not a single one got the AMEX offer. Did get the Citi one, though.
[…] 3700 AAdvantage miles and Loyalty Points, potentially for $25 with Amex Offer it’s a meal delivery service, I had a $25 off $50 offer with Amex and I also stacked a card-linked offer to earn additional miles too. […]
I ordered this on 18th, Tuesday for sunday delivery, but my card will be charged only today. when will the miles post
I’m a bit confused. The T&C stated that offer is not valid for subscriptions yet the first thing the Sunbasket site asked is for me to set up weekly food delivery i.e subscription?
I think it’s just poorly worded. They’re referring to free subscriptions as ineligible.
“Please note these terms & conditions: Only eligible on the initial signup. Not eligible on purchases made with coupon or discount codes that are not found on this site. Not eligible on gift cards, gift certificates or any other similar cash equivalents. Purchases made with a gift card may be ineligible. Not eligible on any free products, trials, services, memberships, subscriptions and retailer marketing subscriptions.”
Set up a new account and ordered $65 worth of product for my first delivery, which is quite difficult to do given all of the discounts. Wanted the order to be over $65 to qualify for the SimplyMiles deal.
Happy to report the 3,700 miles from eShopping posted quickly and the 1,000 miles from SimplyMiles posted one week later.
Food arrived this week and is pretty good!
Does anyone know if it is possible to use the same AA shopping login for multiple sunbasket signups (using different name and email address for sunbasket).
I’d wondered the same thing when writing the post. Some portals list an exclusion along those lines for similar offers, but there wasn’t one listed for Sunbasket. That might mean you can earn the bonus multiple times on the same AAdvantage account, but no guarantee.
i will give it a try today and report back tomorrow
Any update on this? Sorry I posted above as well.
i created a second account at the same address with a different credit card and it did not track. i did have a number of browser tabs open so it is conceivable the cookie got corrupted so i placed another order yesterday in a fresh private browser tab using the same shipping address. it too did not track. maybe there is a delay due to the weekend but probably not. at this point i call it a fail. if yesterday’s order does end up tracking i will report back. One noteworthy thing is sunbasket has all U.S. addresses pre-loaded into their system which would certainly make it easier for them to track. i did not try to put in an address without selecting one of the pre-loaded addresses. if the address field would allow this then you might be able to change up the address a little bit each time and enable it to track properly. i encourage anyone else trying this to save a copy of the long tracking url on the aa shopping site so you can submit a request for aa to track it. unfortunately i did not do that.
When you did the MyPoints offer, did you cancel within the first week so you only received one order?
I did the Swagbucks offer rather than MyPoints, but they’re owned by the same company and so I’d assume the terms were similar. I forget what the actual requirements were, but we only had one delivery and subsequently cancelled and still earned the cashback.
Do you think you can churn this offer? I signed up and canceled about 9 months ago.
I’d guess you’d need to use a different email, but I’m not sure if they track by address too.
I’ll give it a try and report the data point!
3,700 miles posted as pending this morning
There is also a SimplyMiles 1,000 miles for $65 spend and a Citi Merchant offer for $20 back for spending $65.
Thanks – I’ll get that added to the post.
do these actually count as loyalty points?I thought bonuses didnt count?
When the American Airlines shopping portal runs promotions like ‘Spend $500 & earn 2,000 bonus miles’, those bonus miles don’t earn Loyalty Points. However, the base miles you earn through the portal do earn Loyalty Points.
how do you stack with simply miles?-sorry for the newbie question
If you’re not already signed up for SimplyMiles, go to SimplyMiles.com and sign up. You need to link at least one Mastercard there and activate the Sunbasket offer if you have it on your account. After paying for Sunbasket with that card, it should track on SimplyMiles thanks to it being a card-linked offer and you’ll earn the American Airlines AAdvantage miles and Loyalty Points.
