United States JetBlue Credit Card Calculators

JetBlue offers three Barclays credit cards for those who want to build their JetBlue Miles and experience a few additional perks. These cards feature categories that focus on JetBlue, restaurant, grocery, and office supply store purchases. Both the JetBlue Plus Card and JetBlue Business Card serves as the higher earning cards and offers the best benefits for those who frequently fly with JetBlue. The no-fee JetBlue Card isn't as packed with benefits, but still provides a solid return for those who want a few additional JetBlue Points, but don't need the perks of the annual fee cards.

Per the usual, you will be able to calculate total rewards and the cash value of the cards based on monthly/yearly spend, how much you value the card benefits, and any annual fees the card may have.

Redeeming Rewards & Cash Value

JetBlue TrueBlue Points can be used for award flights on JetBlue Airways as well as Hawaiian Airlines. You can also redeem points toward JetBlue Vacations, magazine subscriptions, and on the Points.com website.

Transfer Partners

JetBlue TrueBlue Points can be earned using major bank rewards programs by transferring the points earned in those programs directly to your TrueBlue account. This method can earn you more JetBlue Points than JetBlue's own credit cards across several bonus categories. Transferring is also an easy way to earn 40,000 to 80,000 TrueBlue Points using the sign up bonuses on partner credit cards.

Earning Rewards

JetBlue TrueBlue Points are primarily earned flying JetBlue Airways. When flying JetBlue you will earn points based on the ticket cost, the fare booked, whether you booked through JetBlue or a third party, and JetBlue Mosaic Status. You can also earn additional JetBlue Points on top of that by using JetBlue Credit Cards. This gives you the ability to earn up to 15 JetBlue Points per $1 spent on JetBlue flights which is pretty fantastic.

In additional to earning points flying JetBlue Airways, you can also earn JetBlue Points flying several partner airlines such as Hawaiian, Emirates, and Singapore Airlines. Other partners include hotels, rental car agencies, and online shopping.

JetBlue Airline Partners

JetBlue Points can be earned flying several airline partners which are:

The amount of JetBlue Points you earn will vary by airline, but it will typically be based on the booking class and distance flown. You can book all of these airlines via jetblue.com. When searching for flights, these airlines will be included in the results. You can also earn JetBlue Points by entering your JetBlue TrueBlue membership number when booking your flight directly with these airlines.

JetBlue Hotel Partners

You can stock up on JetBlue Points using IHG and Marriott. Both programs allow you to either transfer your earned hotel rewards points directly to your JetBlue account or set up the earning preferences where you earn JetBlue Points on every stay. With IHG, both methods will earn you the same amount of points whereas with Marriott you'll want to earn points as normal and transfer them to JetBlue when needed.

You can earn up to 30% off the base rates plus 100 points per day booking with Budget and you can earn up to 35% off the base rates plus 100 points per day booking with Avis. If you have JetBlue Mosaic Status, you can earn 200 points per day with Avis and Budget.

In order to earn JetBlue Points you can book directly through the JetBlue Car Rental Portal or you can book directly and use the proper Avis AWD and Budget BCD numbers.

JetBlue & Amazon

JetBlue Points can be earned shopping Amazon.com while in-flight. You can earn 3 JetBlue Points per $1 spent on select purchases while onboard your JetBlue flights via Fly-Fi. You'll need to be signed into Fly-Fi using the name and email associated with your JetBlue TrueBlue account. Do note that you will need to shop through Amazon.com and not through the Amazon mobile app.

A good way to approach this would be to create a wish list through Amazon.com and wait until you're flying with JetBlue to make your purchases.

JetBlue Vacations

If you really want to maximize on your JetBlue Points, you can book your entire trip using JetBlue Vacations. You can book your JetBlue flight, hotel, car, and more all in one place.
