The Delta pile-on continues. Following their awful changes for people wanting to qualify for SkyMiles elite status, Alaska Airlines launched a status match opportunity to try to steal formerly loyal SkyMiles members to their Mileage Plan program. JetBlue is now joining the party by also trying to entice people over to Mosaic status in their TrueBlue program.

They’re not going about it in a half-hearted way either. The benefits you’ll receive from the status match are very generous, plus they’re making it easy to maintain the status through the end of 2024.

JetBlue Delta status match
Sadly nothing sweet will be coming out of Delta

The Deal

  • Match Delta SkyMiles elite status to JetBlue TrueBlue status:
    • Delta Silver = Mosaic 1
    • Delta Gold = Mosaic 2
    • Delta Platinum = Mosaic 3
    • Delta Diamond = Mosaic 4
  • Direct link to offer.

Key Terms

  • All status and perks are valid through 12/30/23, and keeping your status through 2024 is as easy as successfully completing this challenge. This challenge can be completed in one of two ways:
    • Have a JetBlue Plus Card or JetBlue Business Card by 12/30/23
    • Earn and receive the following number of tiles between the date you receive your matched Mosaic status and 12/30/23
      • Silver Medallion = 6 tiles to keep Mosaic 1
      • Gold Medallion = 12 tiles to keep Mosaic 2
      • Platinum Medallion = 24 tiles to keep Mosaic 3
      • Diamond Medallion = 30 tiles to keep Mosaic 4
  • This status match offer is available to a maximum of 30,000 applicants, or until 10/31/2023, whichever comes first. Once the maximum number of applicants is reached, the sign-up form will no longer be accessible and no additional applicants will be able to register.
  • Separate, whole tiles earned individually from either travel or credit card spend will be combined in the tile tracker, however, travel and card spend will not be comingled towards earning any single whole tile.
  • You will only earn tiles based on the qualifying amounts spent on your individual portion of your booking. You will not earn any tiles for amounts spent on any other traveler’s bookings. See terms and conditions.

Quick Thoughts

This is a fantastic opportunity for Delta elite members, so it’s worth matching ASAP if you’re interested in traveling with JetBlue seeing as they’ve placed a limit of 30,000 applicants. Once you’ve matched, you keep the status through December 30, 2023; it’s then extremely easy to maintain that status through the end of 2024 as being – or becoming – a JetBlue credit cardholder will do the trick. Alternatively, you can earn the requisite number of tiles to maintain that same status.

There’s a much more lengthy list of 25 terms and conditions on the landing page above, so be sure to check those before applying for the status match. For example, one of the requirements is that the applicant’s first and last names on the Delta and JetBlue frequent flier accounts must exactly match. While that won’t be an issue for most people, there’ll no doubt be people with non-matching names for one reason or another.

The terms of the match overall are more bountiful than a Chase Marriott credit card. Here’s what you can expect to receive at each Mosaic level:

Mosaic 1 (matched from Delta Silver)

  • First 2 checked bags free
  • Mosaic Boarding
  • Even More Space at no extra charge during check-in
  • 24/7 dedicated phone line and priority chat
  • Free Same-Day Switches
  • Priority Security
  • Free Beer, Wine & Liquor on-board
  • Plus, you’ll enjoy Mint Suite Priority as your pre-selected Mosaic 1 Perk You Pick.

Mosaic 2 (matched from Delta Gold)

  • All of the Mosaic 1 Signature Perks
  • Even More Space at Booking
  • Plus, you’ll enjoy the Pet Fee Waiver as your pre-selected Mosaic 2 Perk You Pick.

Mosaic 3 (matched from Delta Platinum)

  • All of the Mosaic 1 & 2 Signature Perks
  • 4 Move to Mint certificates, allowing you to book in back and move to Mint at no extra charge
  • Plus, you’ll enjoy the FoundersCard Blue Membership as your pre-selected Mosaic 3 Perk You Pick.

Mosaic 4 (matched from Delta Diamond)

  • All of the Mosaic 1, 2 & 3 Signature Perks
  • 2 additional Move to Mint certificates
  • Credits for 4 one-way Blade Airport helicopter transfers between Manhattan & JFK or EWR
  • Plus, you’ll enjoy 15,000 TrueBlue Points as your pre-selected Mosaic 4 Perk You Pick.

The fact that you’ll receive all of these perks from a status match without needing to have had any JetBlue activity in the past is phenomenal, as is the ability to keep the status with a JetBlue credit card. As a result, I wouldn’t be surprised if the limit of 30,000 status match applicants is hit long before October 31, so jump on this straight away if you’re interested.

The JB credit card, to extend status into 2024……Is there a date one needs to apply for the card in order to qualify? (Alaska match, one has until 12/31/24 to apply for the Alaska card).

Current DL Diamond, Platinum for 2024. Applied for the match the day it went live. Got approved for Mosaic 4 today – 6 mint certs, 4 blade helicopter rides and 20k trueblue miles already in my account, plus got a congratulatory call from the Mosaic line. Kinda loving it already lol

Ok DP update: I noticed. that my 6 mint certificates (and other perks) expire at the end of Dec 2023, so I called the mosaic line to ask if they would be extended should I successfully complete the status challenge. The agent I spoke with says they won’t be extended but if I complete the challenge and start 2024 off as Mosaic 4, I get another 6 mint certificates (and all the other Mosaic 4 perks) at the start of the year. If this is correct, this is so much better than I thought!

DP: I was in the middle of a Delta status match promo which got me to Platinum so I figured I’d take a flyer and see if JetBlue would status match me, even though I only received Delta Platinum via promo. Just got word that I was matched to Mosaic 3 today!

Would be curious to see JetBlue included more often in the discussion of DL alternatives, along with carriers like AA and UA. Their program is pretty good, and also pretty similar to AA’s.

Mike

Done and awaiting response. I am Delta Platinum for 2024. Looking at JBs program it seems way easier to get and maintain status. Thanks for the heads up!

I signed up as a current Delta Silver who has not yet met the MQM requirement for 2024 (but will before the end-of-the-year). Curious if they’ll let me through, and will report back when I find out!

Mr. Seg

I requested the match for both myself and P2, will update once i get an update
