Quick Thoughts

I’ve done this three times now, with multipe e-mails. Both Swagbucks and MyPoints make this a nice little profit-maker…with meal deliveries included. This offer is stackable with a targeted Citi/Amex Offer for $25 back on $50 in a Blue Apron purchase. Note, the Citi Offer does not specify that the purchase can be made in more than one transaction.  In the past, that has been the case, but there’s no gaurantee it will hold this time.  However, it’s easy to get around this.

Going through the Swagbucks or MyPoints portal will give you a discount of $130 off on your first five deliveries.  The discount is split like this:

  • 1st delivery – $45 (and free shipping)
  • 2nd delivery – $30
  • 3rd-5th delivery – $18

You have to receive two deliveries to be eligible for the discount, so it’s beneficial to make the first delivery as close to $45 as possible (to get an almost free box) and the next delivery as close to $77 as you can, so that the cost after the $27 discount stays above $50.

I signed-up for the 4 meals/2 persons plan, but then changed the first box to only have two meals instead of 4.  This brought the total for the box (with free shipping) to ~$5.  For the second box, I went back up to four meals, which made my pre-discount cost ~$81 with shipping.  After the $27 2nd delivery discount, my total was $54, just enough to trigger the Citi offer.  Perfect!

The total cost with shipping was ~$60 for the first two boxes. Once the Citi offer applies, that will go down to $35 out of pocket.  Assuming everything tracks, I’ll end up with $55 ($90 in MyPoints – $35 OOP), 1200 AA Miles/Points AND 12 meals.  That’s a pretty solid deal.  Make sure that you activate both the Citi offer and SimplyMiles before the first charge and that you have the Mastercard that you use for the charge registered to your SimplyMiles account.

There is a $25 off of $50 Amex offer as well (that I wrote about earlier in conjunction with the AA Shopping Portal) with varying expiration dates depending on when you were targeted.

You can easily skip as many deliveries as you’d like through the online portal, but note that there are two different qualifiers for the whole thing to work: you must receive two deliveries AND have your subscription be active for 30 days.  If you only want the first two deliveries, I’d just skip everything after that for two months and leave the subscription open until the Swagbucks/MyPoints are credited.

I did Blue Apron via Mypoints (along with Citi and SimplyMiles) according to how Tim laid it out above. I did Sunbasket at the same time also with Mypoints, and that one shows as pending on Mypoints for the correct amount while Blue Apron does not show anything. Does that seem normal, or do I need to contact Mypoints about missing points?

Admittedly I am not a new customer and I used almost the same email address to create a login (and the identical delivery address as before). My 2nd order just arrived Friday last week, the one that was >$50. Thanks.

I sure wish all these meal kit folks would find a different delivery partner so I could actually get my boxes often enough to play this game.

I’m currently sitting at about a 50% unsuccessful delivery rate because Axlehire can’t be bothered to follow my delivery instructions and instead chooses to throw it on a public, downtown sidewalk in front of my building where I’m sure it lasts all of about 5 minutes.

have anyone orded the butcher bundle or meal prep bundle instead of the regular meals? I wonder if it tracks if you get a bundle instead.

If you are having a friend sign up (different email, different shipping address) through your shopping portal, can you double down on the points?

Also, Blue Apron is NOW SHOWING 2500 AA miles on my portal.

The friend can’t be bothered with all the games, so I’m signing them up with my portal (they get the free meals, I get a bit of a money maker + some fun points).

Let’s say I’m using AA portal, if I’ve already received an AA bonus for Blue Apron for myself, am I still eligible for getting the 2500 AA points again?

Are other shopping portals similar? So if you are signing up a friend, and you already got the bonus let’s say in Rakuten, should you sign up your friend through your AA portal, for example?

Hope that makes sense, thanks in advance!

is the simplymiles 1200 miles targeted? I don’t see it

thanks

Nice deal. Another option is Rakuten which has $60 back. And it only requires one delivery vs the two deliveries required for SwagBucks and MyPoints.
