Update 2/6/21: As ktc noted in the comments below, only the business card is offering 100,000 bonus points now.

Update 2/3/21: These 100k offers were due to end on January 31, but they’re still going strong. It’s not clear how long they’ll be available, so if you regretted missing out on these increased offers, it could be best applying ASAP.
Update 1/26/21: JetBlue sent an email today advising members that this 100K offer on the JetBlue Plus card would end on 1/31/21. It is likely that the business card will expire at the same time. If you have these cards on your radar, you only have a few days left.

Barclays has come out with a couple of huge welcome offers on the JetBlue Plus and JetBlue Business credit cards, offering up to 100,000 bonus points on both cards when meeting the minimum spend requirements. Even better is that you have a full year to meet the relatively easy spend requirement.

Are You Eligible For The JetBlue Business Card?

Applying for Business Credit Cards

Yes, you have a business: In order to sign up for a business credit card, you must have a business. That said, it's common for people to have businesses without realizing it. If you sell items at a yard sale, or on eBay, for example, then you have a business. Similar examples include: consulting, writing (e.g. blog authorship, planning your first novel, etc.), handyman services, owning rental property, renting on airbnb, driving for Uber or Lyft, etc. In any of these cases, your business is considered a Sole Proprietorship unless you form a corporation of some sort.

When you apply for a business credit card as a sole proprietor, you can use your own name as your business name, use your own address and phone as the business' address and phone, and your social security number as the business' Tax ID / EIN. Alternatively, you can get a proper Tax ID / EIN from the IRS for free, in about a minute, through this website.

Is it OK to use business cards for personal expenses? Anecdotally, almost everyone I know uses business cards for personal expenses. That said, the terms in most business card applications state that you should use the card only for business use. Also, some consumer credit card protections do not apply to business cards. My advice: don't use the card for personal expenses if you're not comfortable doing so.

Quick Thoughts

This is the first time we’ve ever seen 100,000 bonus point welcome offers on either of these cards, so it’s a fantastic opportunity to pick up a boatload planeload of TrueBlue points.

In fact, the offers are so good that in terms of the first year value you can expect to get from these cards, they currently take up two of the top three spots on our Best Credit Card Signup Offers page. The JetBlue Plus card has the highest value of all personal cards, while only the 100,000 point offer on the Chase Ink Business Preferred card has a higher first year value on any cards.

These bonuses actually come in two parts on both cards. You’ll earn 50,000 bonus points when spending $1,000 in the first 90 days and an additional 50,000 bonus points after a total of $6,000 of spend in the first 12 months. While a $6,000 spend requirement in the past would’ve been prohibitive for some people as it usually would’ve had to have been completed in three months, having an entire year to complete that spend requirement makes it far more achievable as that’s only $500 per month. One variable load Visa gift card per month and voilà – you’re done.

What’s particularly nice is that you should be able to do some (or all) of the minimum spend requirement in bonused spend categories, even if you’re not planning on taking any paid JetBlue flights. The JetBlue Plus card offers 2x TrueBlue points per dollar at grocery stores and restaurants, while the JetBlue Business card offers 2x at office supply stores and restaurants. While 2x TrueBlue points at office supply stores isn’t – on the face of it – as good as 5x Ultimate Rewards from an Ink Plus or Ink Cash card, you’re effectively earning 16.67x bonus TrueBlue points per dollar on that spend based on the welcome offer. In nearly every case 18.67x TrueBlue points will be worth more than 5x Ultimate Rewards so that’s a great option, although with the constant stream of Visa and Mastercard gift card deals from Staples and Offce Depot/OfficeMax, it can be both/and rather than either/or if you have the time and inclination to liquidate all those cards and have both a JetBlue Business and 5x-earning Ink card.

Remember that similar to Southwest’s Rapid Rewards program, the value of JetBlue TrueBlue points is tied to the cost of a cash ticket. You should get ~1.3cpp of value, so 100,000 bonus points on top of the points you’ll earn while meeting the spend requirements means you’ll end up with enough points for $1,375+ of tickets on JetBlue. If you’re confident that JetBlue will make it through these trying times (© every ad on TV) relatively unscathed, that’s a huge amount of value. JetBlue allegedly secured slots at Heathrow recently, so the prospect of using those points for travel to Europe makes these offers even more intriguing.

Update: Chad reminded me in the comments below that these cards also offer a 10% points rebate, so redeeming 106,000 points would get you an additional 10,600 points back which are worth ~$137.80.

If you’re considering putting a lot of spend on these cards, you can also earn Mosaic status with $50,000 of spend in a calendar year.

look like only business card is still alive


well just received card, called to verify they said its only the standard 60K, but will request a match. I have screenshots ready, wonder how good my chance is?


thanks grabbed the business version.

Al K

Is one able to apply and be approved for both personal and business versions?

Applied and got approved for business yesterday. Thinking to attempt a personal one today.

Thank you

Greg The Frequent Miler

Yes, it’s possible. No guarantee that you’ll be approved though

Al K

Thank you, Greg.

Never a guarantee. 🙂 Gave it a shot and got pended with “Your application is being reviewed.” As a data point for future offers perhaps:

  • Relatively high income
  • 2/25
  • Approved for JetBlue Business as a sole proprietor yesterday
  • 3 inquiries before this application (Hyatt in Oct, Freedom Flex in Jan, and JetBlue Business 1/30/21)
  • FICO 8 ~830

I think I will just wait and see if it gets approved or declined without calling in.

Al K

Got approved for both JetBlue personal and business.

David Ramirez

Nick & Greg You did have insider information on when it would end.


What about getting this card at 100,000 points and transferring it to Amtrak at 2:1 (100,000 = 50,000) then transferring Amtrak to Hilton at 1:2 (50,000 = 100,000). This method scores an easy 100,000 Hilton points for the $99 annual fee of rhe JetBlue card. (I do not need JetBlue or Amtrak points. I am trying to build up Hilton points because 80,000 Hilton points gets me a free night at the Hilton Maldives which is worth $1,000++ a night). I’ve never attempted to transfer JetBlue or Amtrak points yet, is it worth the risk to do this? Thanks

Greg The Frequent Miler

You need to have Amtrak elite status or spend $20K on the Amtrak world elite card each year in order to be able to transfer Amtrak to Hilton (or to Choice)


Thank you 🙂


The 100k business card offer link is no longer working. There is a 60k business card landing page available. Is the 100k offer dead?

Greg The Frequent Miler

I still see the 100K offer when I click through from our JetBlue Business card page: https://frequentmiler.com/B6biz/#Goto

Where did you see a 60K offer?

[…] Huge New 100k Offers On JetBlue Plus & Business Cards […]


Quick datapoint, since it could be useful for anyone else.

Applied for the Business card in early November.

I’m considering doing some driving on the side (Uber Eats, etc) and wanted a separate card to manage expenses. So I applied saying this is my first year in business with zero revenue.

I was on the GrAAvy TrAAin last year, so I’m at about 10/24. I’ve never had a JetBlue card, last Barclay was a couple years ago.

Anyway, I was not instantly approved, got a letter a week later saying they needed to verify my identity. I faxed in all that information, got another letter a week later saying they still needed to verify my identity.

Turns out that they do a lookup of the phone number provided to match it up with your name/address. And since I use a Google Voice as my primary number, they couldn’t initially verify my identity. After giving another number that did tie back to my address I was approved.

So long story short… if you have the option and remember, it might be better to use a cell associated with you and not a virtual cell #.

Captain Greg

I decided to apply for the Plus since I already have the business card. This offer was just too good to pass up.

[…] increased offers keep coming! Barclays Bank has jumped in it with Huge New 100k Offers On JetBlue Plus & Business Cards. Interesting twist yet again, getting the first 50,000 after just $1k spend and the next 50,000 […]

Captain Greg

Which would you say is more rare/better? This offer, the 60k gold offer or the 45/50k green offer?

Manuel Savorelli

Can you apply for the business and the personal on the same day? Thanks!


Yes you can.

Ed. C

Has there been any new information on whether or not AA miles can be used for Jet Blue awards or vice versa?


I got the biz card a few months ago. Anyone know if Barclays is open to matching offers when a better offer like this one comes out?
