JetBlue, known for its award winning service, 10″ HDTV screens, high speed in-flight internet, and free snacks, is becoming more popular as they introduce new routes, expand their fantastic Mint Class premium cabin, and more frequent flyers become aware of the three JetBlue rewards cards.
If you're interested in learning about the JetBlue TrueBlue loyalty program, we've compiled some of the basics.
How to Join
First of all, it's free & easy to become a JetBlue TrueBlue member. If you're a TrueBlue member, make sure that you include your membership number on your application if you apply for one of their new credit cards, and on your JetBlue flights if you want to earn TrueBlue points.
As a TrueBlue member, you will earn 6x TrueBlue points when you book on the JetBlue website. The terms & conditions state: “You will earn 3 TrueBlue points per dollar spent on the base fare of your individual JetBlue flight, plus 3 bonus points per dollar for flights booked on jetblue.com, for a total of 6 points per eligible dollar spent.”
JetBlue allows you to combine your points with other family members. This is a great perk, which makes gathering enough points for a family trip easier.
Some important details:
- Families can have up to 2 adults and 5 children.
- There must be at least 2 people in a family pooling account.
- The “head of household” will manage all of the points in the family pooling account.
- Members aren't able to join multiple family pooling accounts.

Mosaic Elite Benefits
Mosaic is JetBlue's Elite Status program. You can earn Mosaic status by either flying 30 segments + 12,000 base points, or by earning 15,000 base points in a calendar year. You could also get TrueBlue Mosaic status by spending $50,000 in a calendar year on the JetBlue Plus Card.
Mosaic benefits are pretty handy for the loyal JetBlue flyer. Mosaic members (or others on their itinerary) won't be charged cancellation or change fees. They will also receive their first and second bag checked free on flights. Also, when you earn Mosaic status, you will be rewarded with a bonus of 15,000 JetBlue points; that's a nice perk.
Mosaic members can also buy more legroom at a discount.
TrueBlue Mosaic members also receive early boarding, priority security line access, dedicated 24/7 phone line, 9 points per $1 for booking flights on JetBlue.com, and complimentary alcoholic beverages on board.
JetBlue has over 40 partners where you can earn bonus points, redeem points, or receive exclusive deals.
I like that you can earn Singapore Krisflyer miles when flying JetBlue revenue flights. Singapore Airlines is a part of the Star Alliance, so you can use their miles for redemptions on any airline in the alliance, such as United. You can also earn and redeem JetBlue TrueBlue points on Hawaiian Airlines.
Another convenient partner of JetBlue is American Express Membership Rewards. You can transfer Amex MR points into the TrueBlue program to help top off your account for an upcoming booking. Always nice to have this option.

JetBlue encourages their members to promote them on social media by rewarding them with badges. You can also earn points and personal experiences through these badges, so if you're already a social person, it can be easy to earn these badges and points by promoting JetBlue to your friends and family.
Redeeming TrueBlue Points
You can easily redeem JetBlue TrueBlue points for JetBlue award flights on their website. JetBlue award prices are based on the revenue price of the flight. One good thing is that JetBlue often has fare sales, which means that award prices will be cheaper as well. There are no blackout dates for award flights, but awards will be higher if the cost of the flight is higher.
Read this post on how to redeem & maximize your JetBlue points for flights.
TrueBlue members also have the option to redeem their points for magazines, vacation getaways and more. However, the best value will be in redeeming your TrueBlue points for flights.
Earning TrueBlue Points
You can earn JetBlue TrueBlue points by flying revenue JetBlue flights. As stated above, you will earn 3x points for the purchase of the flights, and at least 3x more for booking on the JetBlue website.
And you can earn more points by paying for leg room, flying with your pet, and on JetBlue Getaways.
JetBlue and Barclays recently released three new travel rewards credit cards. The two personal cards are worth thinking about if you want to earn some upfront JetBlue points and receive some perks for flying JetBlue.
UPDATE: The offer for the JetBlue Card is expired. You can find the best current offers on the Hot Deals page.
First, there's the no annual fee JetBlue Card, which comes with a signup bonus of 10,000 points after you spend $1,000 in the first 90 days, and earns 3x points for JetBlue purchases, 2x points at restaurants & grocery stores, and 1x on all other purchases.
The other option is the JetBlue Plus Card, which comes with a signup bonus of 30,000 points, and earns 6 points for every dollar spent on JetBlue purchases; 2 points per dollar spent at restaurants and grocery stores, and 1 point per dollar on all other purchases.
The JetBlue TrueBlue loyalty program is a nice compliment to an airline that already excels in offering great service and a quality product. Whether you already fly JetBlue or you're interested in doing so, becoming a TrueBlue member can be rewarding and make a lot of sense for you. Looking to earn even more points? Consider their new credit card options.
