There are now three new JetBlue MasterCard credit cards available – 2 personal and 1 business card. They are Barclaycards and anyone that had an existing JetBlue American Express card should have already received their updated card in the mail. Card details:

The JetBlue Card (personal, no annual fee):

  • Bonus Offer: 10,000 points after you spend $1,000 on the card within the first 90 days
  • Point Earning Structure: 3x points on all JetBlue purchases, 2x points at restaurants and grocery stores, and 1x point on all other purchases
  • Other Card Benefits: 50% discount on in-flight purchases (i.e., wine/beer, food, movies); No foreign transaction fees
  • Annual Fee: No annual fee
  • Application Link: The JetBlue Card

The JetBlue Plus Card (personal, annual fee):

  • Bonus Offer: 30,000 points after you spend $1,000 on the card within the first 90 days

The JetBlue Business Card (business, annual fee):

  • Point Earning Structure: 6x points on all JetBlue purchases, 2x points at restaurants and office supply stores, and 1x point on all other purchases
  • Other Card Benefits: 5,000 bonus points on every account anniversary; 1 free checked bag for primary cardmember and up to 3 companions on same reservation when you use your JetBlue credit card to purchase a JetBlue-operated flight; Earn Mosaic status after spending $50,000 or more on purchases in the calendar year; 10% back in points when you redeem for a flight; 50% discount on in-flight purchases (i.e., wine/beer, food, movies); No foreign transaction fees
  • Annual Fee: $99 annual fee
  • Application Link: The JetBlue Business Card

Overall, these cards do not come with an amazing sign up bonus, but still offer something. I also like that you earn double points on a few select categories, i.e., restaurants, grocery store (personal card), and office supply stores (business card).  Keep in mind though that only the two cards that carry an annual fee give you free checked bags (for the primary cardmember + 3 companions).

The no annual fee version doesn’t give you much benefit for being a card holder. Not surprising since there is no annual fee. The personal and business card that come with a fee do give you a 5,000 point bonus on your anniversary year. While they doesn’t fully make up for the $99 fee, it gives you approximately a $70 value. So for about $30 extra a year (over the no annual fee card), you get a bunch of extra benefits – free checked bags, 10% back when using your points to book a flight, and more points on every purchase. And, if you are a big spender, you’ll receive Mosaic status after spending $50,000 on the card in a calendar year.

Since these are three separate cards, you have the opportunity to apply for all three, and if approved and meet the minimum spend requirements per card get a total of 70,000 bonus points. Since JetBlue points are worth approximately 1.4 cents per point, the 10,000 point offer will give you ~$140 towards future travel and the two 30,000 point offers will give you ~$420 towards future travel. So this could ultimately give you ~$1,000 in JetBlue travel!
