JetBlue is a direct transfer of American Express Membership Rewards and points earned in the program can be transferred to JetBlue at a 250:200 ratio.
Conversion Rate & Fees
Membership Rewards points can be transferred to JetBlue TrueBlue at a 250:200 ratio. This means that every 250 AMEX points you transfer will give you 200 JetBlue points.
This is the lowest transfer ratio when compared to other major credit card transfer partners, but the higher earning rates of AMEX's credit cards slightly makes up for it.
Transfers to JetBlue can be done in 250-point increments and you can transfer as little as 250 points and as many as 999,750 points in a single transaction. Transfers can take up to 48 hours, but you'll typically see the transfer reflected in your balance the same day.
Excise Tax Offset Fee
When you transfer Membership Rewards points to a U.S. airline frequent flyer program, you will be charged an Excise Tax Offset of $0.0006 per point. This means every 1,000 AMEX points you transfer will cost you $0.60.
American Express gives you the choice to pay for this fee with an eligible Membership Rewards credit card connected to the account or with Membership Rewards points. When paying in points, they will be worth 0.5 cents which is a terrible redemption value considering that you can easily get 1 cent for airfare or even higher transferring them to partners.
