The JetBlue Credit Cards from Barclaycard 

The three different JetBlue cards are broken up into a personal card sporting a $99 annual fee, a no annual fee card, and a business card.

The JetBlue Plus Card

The JetBlue Plus comes with a solid bonus of 40,000 points. While this card has a $99 annual fee, it also comes with an anniversary gift of 5,000 bonus points (worth between $60 and $75) every year you keep the card. The card also entitles you to free checked bags for yourself and up to three companions.

The JetBlue Plus earns 6x points on JetBlue purchases, 2x points at restaurants & grocery stores, 1x on all other purchases. You'll receive 50% off in-flight purchases and pay no foreign transaction fees if you choose to use the card internationally.

The JetBlue Card

If you're looking for a card without the annual fee, the JetBlue Card is a fantastic option. While this version doesn't come with free checked bags or extra points on your account anniversary, it does offer 50% savings on eligible in-flight purchases like cocktails and food.

The card earns 3x points on purchases with JetBlue, 2x points at restaurants & grocery stores, 1x on all other purchases. It also doesn't charge foreign transaction fees, so you can swipe it abroad without incurring extra costs.

JetBlue Business Card

If you're a small business owner, the JetBlue Business Card has all of the same benefits as the JetBlue Plus. In addition to those benefits, you will earn 2x points when you shop at restaurants and office supply stores.

The JetBlue Business Card has an excellent a signup bonus of up to 60,000 points with reasonable spending requirements. As a business card, it won't count towards Chase's 5/24 rule, making it a great card to apply for if you're aiming for a Chase credit card and want to keep your applications to a minimum.

JetBlue TrueBlue Loyalty Program

We cover the highlights of the JetBlue TrueBlue loyalty program in more detail in our introductory post, but you can find a summary below.

Family Pooling

JetBlue allows you to combine TrueBlue points with other household members through the “family pooling” option, making it easier to have enough points for a great travel redemption, and that includes points earned via the business card. You'll never have to worry about errant points left in family members account due to a lack of travel.

Award Chart & Redeeming TrueBlue Points

You can redeem your TrueBlue points for one-way or round-trip flights, and there are no blackout dates (award prices are dynamic, relative to the cash price of the ticket). You can also redeem your TrueBlue points for flights on Hawaiian Airlines, vacation getaways, or even merchandise.

TrueBlue is a partner program of each of the major transferrable currencies; however, you aren't likely to get as much value from JetBlue transfers as some of the alternatives.

TrueBlue is revenue-based, much like the Southwest Rapid Rewards program. This means that award prices will vary, based on the dollar cost of a flight. Although non-revenue based award charts are the preference for many, there can be some great deals through the TrueBlue program. For example, award flights start at just 3,500 points one-way!

JetBlue flies select international routes like the Caribbean from the East Coast. This New York (JFK) to Bermuda (BDA) flight for only 4,500 points and $5.60 is a steal.

To book JetBlue TrueBlue awards, simply go to JetBlue.com, sign into your account, and select “TrueBlue points” as you search for your flights.

Routes

JetBlue is expanding their routes frequently and has excellent coverage of the East Coast and the Caribbean. The West Coast (mainly California) has some decent coverage, while middle America is relatively bare (all JetBlue destinations).

Mint Class

JetBlue's Mint Class is considered one of the best premium cabins for a domestic airline, leaving many of the legacy programs behind when comparing the quality of service and the Mint product itself.

Conclusion

There are three JetBlue credit cards issued through Barclaycard. These cards are a great fit for those who already fly JetBlue, and they might be enough to get some new folks who might have been on the fence to try JetBlue. Overall, these JetBlue credit cards are solid offers.

The premium JetBlue Plus stands out, with its signup bonus of 40,000 points, 10% rebate, free checked bag, and 5,000-anniversary bonus points.

The no annual fee JetBlue Card comes with a 10,000 point signup bonus, as well as 2x points on restaurants & groceries, no foreign transaction fees, and chip technology — certainly good perks for a card with no annual fee.

  • I have earned over 3000 points on my Jetblue MasterCard but they do not show up on my True Blue website account. Can someone tell me the procedure for joining these points to my points on Trueblue. Thank u

  • Is the 30k sign-up bonus the best you’ve seen for Jet Blue?

  • sandra damato says:

    When MasterCard wants to be not as responsible as AMEX it says sorry you must fight for months to get your money back, from a charge that should have been reversed long ago.BUT when they want an annual fee after they said you will have NO fee. Then they say well you paid a fee to AMEX. YES but with AMEX I would not have to has driven to Miami to get the credit that should have been taken care of months ago.

    I am SO disappointed as a loyal Jetblue AMEX card holder.Barclay offered no incentive for me to stay. I did not want another master card so ws not very interested. Miss my Amex acoount. Also, when we didn’t activate, the sent us a bill anyhow for yearly fee.
    My partner had to speak to 3 reps this AM before they understood we did not want the account!

    • Award Wallet says:

      It’s definitely a bummer for the current Amex JetBlue card holders! But the new Mastercard options do offer a sign up bonus, and some interesting perks.
