American Express Membership Rewards to jetBlue TrueBlue Transfer Bonus August and September 2018

Key Terms

  • 25% bonus Promotion valid through October 1, 2018
  • Receive 250 JetBlue points for every 250 Membership Rewards transferred
  • There are no limits to how many points you can transfer

Other Options To Earn JetBlue TrueBlue Rewards

The last transfer bonus from Membership Rewards to TrueBlue was in May 2017 and was the same 25% offer. In May 2018 there was a 30% transfer bonus from Citi ThankYou Rewards.

JetBlue co-branded credit cards are a primary way to build up a balance in your TrueBlue account; however, there are several options to boost your TrueBlue balance.

Our Take

In general, we're not fans of speculative points transfers, since once the transfer is done, there is no going back. That said, if you're looking to top off an account for redemption or have something in mind, it could make sense to transfer over the points if the numbers make sense.

  • A bonus is a bonus in the points collecting world, thanks.

  • By coincidence, I was going to count my JetBlue points and needs today.

  • A bonus is a bonus as the above poster said, but they aren’t all the same since you never know future values. A bird in the hand is definitely worth more than two in the bush in this business.

  • As much as I likve Jetblue and look forward to redeeming my points with them when the opportunity arises, I certainly believe I can get more value out of my flexible points by leaving them be. That being said, if there ever was a program where you might speculatively transfer points, Jetblue is the one. Since their value is not normally 1:1 and since they don’t expire and can be pooled, if someone lives in a city where Jetblue has a presence, it could make sense. I definitely miss the days where we could earn Jetblue points by shopping at Amazon!

  • I think Jet Blue has some big advantages. The points don’t expire, which saves micromanagement. It’s an especially good place to park points if you live on the West coast/Southern California. Their footprint isn’t large, but if you can leave out of Long Beach and save a trip to LAX, you’re golden.

  • Any transfer that gets me more points is one worth doing

  • I’m still not sure about transfers to JetBlue – JetBlue tickets are usually fairly cheap anyways.
    Nevertheless, thanks for the info!

  • AS “rich” says -> any transfer that gets more Points is worth doing”! – i might use it too

  • Given that the transfers weren’t 1:1 before, it’s not a great deal. Especially since there’s a fee for transferring points to a US program.

  • thanks for the little extra bonus!!!

  • Love Jet Blue but no MR points to transfer.

  • Bonus is nice if you are already doing it.

  • I don’t find Membership Rewards points that exciting, but you have a good point. Membership Reward offers like this seem to come occasionally. And, even though True =Blue miles don’t expire, I think airline miles are more likely to be devalued.

  • nice little bonus
    thanks for the alert

  • Bertrand Say says:

    Amex membership rewards run this promo with different point programs from time to time. Only do so if you have use of the points now. Just wait for the next round if you dont have a use for it now.

  • I would like to see some Membership Rewards offers also in Europe.

    • Try typing ‘American Express Rewards’ followed by your country to see transfer bonuses and deals, offers are country specific rather than covering an entire continent.

  • Nice bonus, thanks for the info.

  • I love to see bonuses like this!

  • These transfer bonuses are welcome, as I’d be hesitant to transfer to JB without them.

  • I just need to book jetblue today. Thanks!

  • Donald Andrews says:

    I needed some additional Jet Blue mile anyway so its great to get a bonus!
