Quick Thoughts

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.

@Tim. Does JetBlue points pooling member (without JetBlue credit card) get free checked bag if LEADER with JetBlue credit card and make booking for the member? Please advise if possible. I can’t find the info in JetBlue terms.

Anybody had success to get 10% rebate on reward redemptions? It looks like JetBlue customer service have no clue about it and won’t help you with this credit card benefit.

I’m seeing the following language on my application (in the T&C just before final submission):

“This one-time offer is valid for first-time cardmembers with new accounts only. Existing cardmembers, existing accounts, and previous cardmembers with accounts closed in the past 24 months may not be eligible for this offer. This offer may be canceled at any time without notice.

From time to time, we may offer bonuses of TrueBlue points or other incentives to new JetBlue Mastercard cardmembers in connection with an application for a new card account. These bonuses and/or incentives are intended for applicants who are not and have not previously been JetBlue Mastercard cardmembers. You understand and agree that you may no longer be eligible for any bonuses and/or incentives in connection with a new JetBlue Mastercard card account after this Card Account is opened. If you receive a bonus or incentive for which you are not eligible due to your status as a current or former JetBlue Mastercard cardmember, we may revoke the bonus or incentive, or reduce your TrueBlue points by the amount of the bonus or incentive, or charge your Card Account for the fair value of the bonus or incentive, in our sole discretion.”

This implies to me that having had any JetBlue Mastercard would make you ineligible for the bonus. Going to find out!

@Tim, can I refer a friend to Barclay’s Jetblue Business card & earn a referral bonus?

I closed my JetBlue Business card last week and will reopen again once it’s safe to do so. How long do you have to wait to churn the Business Card?

Don’t they have a strict 6/24 rule? And if some of the your biz cards are from them they will count them towards the 6 even though they don’t report to the CB.

Great data point Tim, and congratulations on the Business Earner approval.

Has there been any updates on when JetBlue points will be able to be used for AA flights?

These are good offer but not really that high. Last year jetblue plus had an offer for 100K. Keep in mind that you cant book blue basic fare with points so the values of these points are somewhat inflated

Does anyone know if you get free carry on bags when purchasing Blue Basic fares with either of these cards? You get a free checked bag but what about a carry on?
