Quick Thoughts

The JetBlue Plus offer was previously 50,000 points after $1,000 in spend.  This offer is significantly better, as it raises the bonus to 80,000 points after the same $1K in spend (and after paying the annual fee). This is the best offer we’ve seen in a while for the JetBlue Plus card; there was a 100,000 mile offer last year, but that required $6k in spend to reach the bonus, making this a more appealing offer in my opinion.

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 $1,000 spend and then cancelling it after twelve months when the annual fee comes due.

I have found Barclays difficult. They always request I send a copy of my DL and SocSec card. Whoever asks to see that, particularly if I already have 2 cards with them?

lei

why did they ask for those? for what transactions? don’t they already have those data in their system?

Frank

I was applying for a new Wyndham Business credit card. Yes, I am sure I have in the past sent them both of these for a different card.

You can get the annual fee waived for the first year by getting the flyer/application form on a flight

It’s up to 80k. Requires a 5-digit code. However, it looks like entering any 5-digit number takes you to the application. I can’t apply because I have the card already, so I can’t confirm that it works when you just make up your own code. I think it does though.

Mr. Seg

I can confirm it’s 80K, I recently traveled with JetBlue and got the card

I had this card in the past. How do do I have to wait to apply and get a bonus again?

Rich

Gotcha. Probably will apply and report back.
