What are the benefits of linking my Blink account and my Amazon account?

All Blink account holders have the option to link their Blink accounts to their Amazon accounts. Linking to an Amazon account will allow you to see and manage all of your Blink Subscription Plans in one place, along with the ability to activate Blink Subscription Plans through Amazon.

You can check and modify your Amazon account settings, or access them to verify which account you want to use to purchase a subscription plan if you have multiple accounts.

Do I have to link my Blink account and my Amazon account?

No. Linking your accounts is strictly voluntary and you can unlink the accounts at any time.

Yes. Linking your accounts is only required in order to activate subscription plans.

Do I lose my Blink account if I link my Amazon account and use it to log into the Blink app?

No. Your Blink account still exists and can be accessed at any time.

Will Blink gain access to any of my Amazon information or vice-versa?

Yes. Agreeing to link these accounts grants Blink and Amazon the ability to access certain information from both accounts. Both companies, however, have stringent privacy policies regarding what can and cannot be accessed and both sets of policies will be honored by both companies.



How to resolve linking to the wrong Amazon.com account

If you link to the wrong Amazon.com account, your purchased subscription plans will not be active and you will lose all of your subscription benefits when your free trial ends. You can view and manage your subscriptions on the Your Memberships & Subscriptions page on Amazon.com, if you need verification of which account was used to purchase your plans.

Once you determine your correct Amazon.com by checking your Amazon account settings and the Your Memberships & Subscriptions page, you will need to unlink your Amazon account. Click here to learn more about unlinking your Blink and Amazon accounts.


After your accounts are successfully unlinked, link your Blink account to the Amazon account you used to purchase your subscription plan.
