The JetBlue Business offer was previously “70K,” but it required $6,000 total spend in order to get the full bonus. $1,000 only netted you 50,000 miles. Getting effectively 4x on an additional $5,000 in spend wasn’t terrible, but was a hefty nut to crack for 20,000 miles. This offer is significantly better, as it both simplifies and raises the bonus to 80,000 points after just $2K in spend. There was a 100,000 mile offer last year that we all hoped would come back, but that could have just been a pandemic one-off.
I know several folks who fly JetBlue often and spend quite a bit on this card in order to obtain Mosaic status. There is also a 5,000 point yearly anniversary bonus as well as a 10% rebate on reward redemptions and a free checked bag, so it can be worthwhile to keep the card for folks who use the airline frequently. For the rest of us, it will most likely be banished it to the sock drawer after making the initial $2,000 spend and then cancelling it after twelve months when the annual fee comes due.
