While most transferable currencies tend to launch new transfer bonuses on the first of the month, Chase seems to like launching them mid-month. It’s November 15 today and sure enough, there’s a new transfer bonus out – a 25% uplift in your points when transferring to JetBlue’s TrueBlue program. This is perfect timing now that you can book at least some Qatar flights using TrueBlue points.
- Get a 25% bonus when transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards to JetBlue TrueBlue.
- Expires January 10, 2024.
American Express is currently offering a 25% transfer bonus to JetBlue as well, but this new transfer bonus from Chase will net you more TrueBlue points. That’s because Amex normally transfers to JetBlue on a 250:200 basis, so their 25% bonus puts that at parity on a 250:250 basis.
Chase on the other hand transfers on a 1:1 basis with a minimum transfer of 1,000 points. That means with this bonus it’ll transfer on a 1,000:1,250 basis which is significantly better. Having said that, some people might still prefer to transfer from Amex despite that difference if you prefer keeping your Ultimate Rewards for transfers to Hyatt and have an overflowing supply of Membership Rewards thanks to various No Lifetime Language (NLL) offers over the past couple of years.
This transfer bonus does come at the perfect time though if you’re wanting to take advantage of JetBlue’s newfound ability to book at least some flights with Qatar Airways, including their wonderful Qsuites product.
One of the other useful things about this transfer bonus is that it’ll be around for almost two months which gives you plenty of time to make a transfer if you don’t need to book anything right now or can’t due to non-existent award availability at the moment.
