70K JetBlue TrueBlue points with business or personal cards

1

Both the JetBlue Business card and the JetBlue Plus card have increased their welcome offers and are now offering up to 70,000 TrueBlue points with qualifying purchases. While not as strong as the 100K offers that we saw earlier in the year, these offers can nonetheless represent excellent return on spend.

Quick Thoughts

Again, these offers are pretty strong even if not the all-time high offers on these cards. Getting 70,000 points after just $1K spend on the consumer card is particularly strong. That 70K points could buy you right around $1,000 worth of JetBlue airfare. That’s a pretty fantastic offer for low spend (though despite the “100% rebate”, I still won’t call it the “indisputable best offer“).

The same number of points requires a lot more spend on the business side. The business card won’t count against 5/24, but I think I’d lean toward holding out in hopes of a better offer. On the one hand, I may have thought that pandemic-influenced increased offers hit their peak earlier this year, Amex has shown that they certainly don’t see things that way. With Chase also having recently offered 100K on the United Quest card (since expired) and strong offers coming and going on the Southwest cards, I think it isn’t unreasonable to hope for Barclays to do better than 70K. Of course, with both Capital One and Brex now set to lose transfers to JetBlue on October 24th, I really don’t know what’s coming next — so maybe these offers are worth it after all. Your crystal ball is as good as mine.
