(EXPIRED) JetBlue Plus: Now 60K after $1K spend in 90 days

Sorry, this deal is no longer available. Do you want to be alerted about new deals as they’re published? Click here to subscribe to Frequent Miler's Instant Posts by email.

The JetBlue Plus Card is now offering a welcome bonus of 60,000 TrueBlue points after just $1K in purchases in the first 90 days. That’s a huge offer for just $1K spend. Based on our conservative Reasonable Redemption Value of 1.33c per point, that’s about $800 worth of airfare for $1K spend, and you may do slightly better depending on your redemptions. That’s a great deal for low spend.

Quick Thoughts

As noted at the top, the key here is that it’s a big return for very low spend. If you live in a city served by JetBlue and can find a halfway decent use for points, this could be a really nice signup bonus given the low bar of entry. While JetBlue doesn’t have the wide network of partner flights enjoyed by legacy carriers in airline alliances, you can reasonably expect to get 1.33c per point. According to Greg’s work, you’ll likely get more like 1.43c each, but we adjusted airline miles downward in May of 2019. If you do get closer to one and a half cents per point, you’re darn near even in terms of the value of the welcome bonus compared to required spend.

We have added this to our Best Offers page. For more information about this card an its benefits, see our card-specific page by clicking the card info above. You’ll also find a link to apply on that page.

Just an FYI JetBlue flights under the blue basic which is JetBlue’s cheapest fare can’t be booked with points. I’m not sure if that’s factored into the current value of JetBlue points but they’re much less valuable than they used to be.


Confusing to say the SUB is worth $800, but the 1st year estimate is just $549.

-$99 for annual fee, -$20 for opportunity cost of spending $1,000 elsewhere… what else? Why isn’t the 1st year estimate around $680?


I’ve had the JetBlue Plus card for several years. Is there any language or data points on whether I can get a second card with the bonus?

Just did your link and got instant approval. Thanks for the 60K heads up.


Here’s a data point. Applied last night and application went into review–8 to 10 days. Immediately called the number on my Aviator card, asked to be transferred to a credit analyst, and volunteered that I knew my credit line on the Aviator card was large and I was willing to split it with the new JetBlue card. Analyst said he appreciated the call and told me I could divide it between the two cards however I wanted. Approval for the JetBlue card came through a few minutes later. Had done this successfully with Chase before, but never tried it with Barclays.
