This is a reminder that today is the last day to request your JetBlue status match and status challenge. Here are the two options:

  • TrueBlue Mosaic Status Challenge – Earn 3,750 base flight TrueBlue points within 90 days and you’ll qualify for Mosaic status through December 31, 2018! You have until August 14, 2017 to request the challenge, so make sure you strategically plan out when you’ll start the challenge as you have 90 days from that particular date. With that being said, it could take JetBlue a few days to acknowledge your request and update your account and only flights taken once you are registered will count.
  • TrueBlue Mosaic Status Match – If you already have status on another airline, you will get automatic Mosaic status through the rest of 2017. Current status includes:
    • Alaska Airlines: Mileage PlanTM MVP Gold or MVP Gold 75k
    • American Airlines: AAdvantage Platinum, AAdvantage Platinum Pro, or Executive Platinum
    • Delta: SkyMiles Medallion Silver, Gold, Platinum, or Diamond
    • Southwest: Rapid Rewards A-List Preferred or Companion Pass
    • United: MileagePlus Premier Silver, Gold, Platinum, or Premier1K
    • Virgin America: Elevate Silver or Gold

Steps to take advantage:

  • For the status match: By June 30, 2016, upload your proof of status for one of the above loyalty programs. Acceptable proof includes a copy of your statement or current credentials card and within two weeks you’ll receive an email stating that you’ve been enrolled.
    • Also, if you are able to earn 3,750 base flight points within 90 days of when your match begins (once you’ve receive the acceptance email) and you can then maintain your status through the end of 2017. If you are not able to earn those base points, your status will be valid through the end of 2016.
  • For the status challenge: Also by June 30, 2016, sign up for the challenge and once you’ve receive the acceptance email, earn 3,750 base points within 90 days. Your status will then be valid through the end of 2017.

Your status will then be valid through the end of 2018. You do not have to have status on another airline to take part in the challenge.

How do I earn 3,750 base flight points? 

Base flight points are the 3 points per $1 you earn on the base fare of your JetBlue flight purchase. JetBlue does not calculate points based on mileage flown, but instead the dollar value of your flight. This means you must spend $1,250 on JetBlue flights during the 90 day time period. Remember though, this is pre-tax since you do not earn points on the taxes paid. Most fares charge anywhere between 15-30% (international flights charge more), so you’ll probably have to spend more like $1,500 during the 90 day period.

What does Mosaic status get me? 

While Mosaic status isn’t nearly as good as having status on some other airlines, it still will get you something. My favorite perk of the program is that change and cancellation fees are waived for Mosaic members and others on the itinerary. However, if you use points, any taxes paid will go into your travel bank and you have 1 year to use them. You’ll also earn an additional 3 TrueBlue points per dollar on your JetBlue flight, for a total of up to 9 points per dollar if you book on jetblue.com. You’ll also get 2 free checked bags for you and any others on your itinerary. You also get free booze on the flight! You can learn more about Mosaic status here.

With Mosaic status you also earn 15,000 JetBlue TrueBlue points. It states on the page that this is a perk, but unfortunately if you earn status through a match, you will NOT earn these bonus points. However, you will earn the points if you are able to earn status through the challenge option.

My experience:

I was able to get the JetBlue status match simply by having the Southwest Companion Pass. My proof was taking a picture of my pass and uploading it to the JetBlue site. I personally couldn’t find anywhere on the Southwest site stating that I was a companion pass holder. I submitted my information a weeks ago and within a few hours I received confirmation that my match was approved! While the terms state that it will take two weeks, in both mine and my husbands experience we received the matched email within a few hours.

If you have status you might as well go ahead and get Mosaic status as you never know when it will come in handy. DO NOT FORGET!
