They give you a 5,000 bonus points each year. Is equal to about $80 in Jet blue flying. So that negates most of the $99. In my opinion. That is if you fly jetblue or have a close hub.

if I have to spend $5000 to get 5000 pts, and 5000pts = $80 .. then the rewards are like 1.6%

not bad.

JetBlue points never expire, and there are no blackout dates.

You get the 60k for spending 1k in three months, then you get a 5k bonus each year no matter if you use the card or not. If you do use it and travel jetblue after your points are used, the 6x reward for jetblue is pretty good, and 1 free bag a flight is nice.

they are worth from 1.2 -1.8 depending on how you catch a jetblue deal. If you are near a hub then you a;already probably use jetblue and they have some fantastic deals through the year.

This deal was for 20 and 40. I know a lot of people that signed for 40 not knowing Jetblue would bump up to 60. For a 1k spend its easy money if you fly.

But if you guys are going after chase cards for their bonuses, keep in mind the 5/24 rules and this would be considered 1 of the 5/24. Chase still has the best bonuses right now followed by amex. Once you go through those, these mid tier cards are not bad

If you did a few weeks ago maybe. But I doubt 3 months they would budge

How much did ya get three months ago? 20k or 40k?

Jetblue is more of an eastcoast airline but they look like the are trying to branch out.

Look at their map, yeah they fly out of Dallas but you are mostly stuck flying to the east coast or Boston looks like

Yes you can use the points for rental and hotel but I don't think the conversion is as good as if you just stick to the airfare. Airfare can be 1.4-1.6 or higher for redemption if you catch a good flight deal. But I think hotels and vacation packages kick the points back down to like .98 or something (less than a penny a point.)

What I see people doing is use the jetblue points for a flight and use a different cards rewards for the rental/hotel and other stuff.


But yeah if you only have these jetblue points you can use them up for hotel and rental cars. just not the best bang for the buck

I tried signing up for the 40k offer (normal was 30k). I called for the offer because I had seen reviews of people signing up online for the 40k offer through the link without first receiving the offer in their mail. They were instead sent given the 30k offer even though they signed up through the 40k offer page.

When I called, I told the rep I am calling to sign up for the 40k offer and she asked if I had an invite offer and I said no and so she said I could only do the 30k offer. No personal info exchanged so I said no thanks.

Can anyone else attest to if you will actually receive this 60k after signing up online?

Also what financial information would you need to state to be approved for this card? What estimated Gross income and credit score?

Thanks

It was the 40k. I'll probably give it a shot anyways, just curious if there were any existing success stories.
