JetBlue Plus and Business Cards Hike Potential Bonuses to 100K Points

For a limited time, two JetBlue credit cards are boosting their possible sign-up bonuses to dizzying heights, if you apply in an eligible way and are willing to spend more.

According to Barclays, the issuer of JetBlue's cards, an offer to earn 100,000 bonus JetBlue TrueBlue points will be available for the following cards if you apply in the right places, starting Oct. 28, 2020.

(Note: These cards are not available to apply for through NerdWallet.)

JetBlue Plus Card

The offer: Earn 50,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 on purchases and paying the annual fee in full, both within the first 90 days. Earn an additional 50,000 bonus points after spending a total of $6,000 on purchases in the first 12 months. (The normal bonus for this card offered 40,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 on purchases and paying the annual fee in full, both within the first 90 days.)

Ways you can get it: 

  • Apply on the JetBlue website (starting the afternoon of Oct. 28, 2020).

  • Apply on a JetBlue flight.

  • Apply through "targeted phone channels."

  • Reply to a special invitation received through email or direct mail.

JetBlue Business Card

The offer: Same as on the JetBlue Plus Card: Earn 50,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 on purchases and paying the annual fee in full, both within the first 90 days. Earn an additional 50,000 bonus points after spending a total of $6,000 on purchases in the first 12 months. (The normal bonus for this card offered 50,000 points after you spent $1,000 in the first 90 days, as well as 10,000 points when a purchase was made on an employee card in the first 90 days.)

Ways you can get it: 

  • Apply on the JetBlue website (starting the afternoon of Oct. 28, 2020).

  • Respond to a special email invitation.

NerdWallet values TrueBlue points at 1.1 cents each, which means a 100,000-point bonus could be worth about $1,100 when redeemed for travel on JetBlue.

The ongoing rewards from the JetBlue Plus Card are generous compared with many other airline credit cards, and benefits like free checked bags and a yearly points bonus can easily make up for the card's $99 annual fee.

JetBlue ranked in the middle of the pack in NerdWallet’s ratings of airlines' responses to COVID-19. JetBlue is also one of the last U.S. airlines to hold out on waiving change fees indefinitely. The airline has extended a temporary waiver policy, but hasn't made it a permanent policy.
