Description: The article talks about jetblue mastercard, we can learn some necessary ways to login to the account of the card which is a credit card for travel rewards, we will be shown by different kinds of cards and some of the big perks of the card.
I am David, today I want to talk about the JetBlue plus card, this is a credit card for travel rewards and it’s a great option and I’m going to show you why you have different types of cards, you have airline branded cards, you have Hotel bread and cards, then you have a more Universal part like the Chase Sapphire Preferred, the Chase Sapphire Reserve card that can transfer to different partners.
This card is specifically for JetBlue and for JetBlue travel, so let me show you some of the big perks of the card, first, there is an annual fee, it’s $99 and it is not waived for the first year, so you will have to pay that.
If you want to retain this card, however, the benefits that you get out of this card will far outweigh that $99 and I’ll show you, so the first real benefit here is that you’ll get six times points on JetBlue purchases, so what that means is that you get six points for each dollar that you spend on any JetBlue purchase, so if it’s airfare, if it’s purchasing movies on the plane or purchasing Wi-Fi on the plane or anything like that, you’ll get six times, our six points for each dollar, you’ll also get two points for each dollar for shopping at any fresh corn point to any restaurant or shopping at any grocery store.
That’s a good perk and then you get one-time points on anything else, so one point per dollar on all other purchases, so that’s great, your first bag is free, so you get a check bag and that is a huge benefit.
Because in most situations, you will have to pay for a check bag, it could be twenty five thirty five dollars, that’s each leg, so if you’re flying to one-way trip to Las Vegas, that’s going to be 25 dollars.
If you’re flying back, that’s maybe another 25 dollars, so it can add up, you earn 30,000 bonus points after you spend a thousand dollars and that’s in the first 90 days, so in the first 90 days, you spend $1,000, you’re going to get thirty thousand points which is roughly about three hundred dollars.
JetBlue JetBlue doesn’t have a set, some airlines have a set fee or set point structure where it’s twenty-five thousand points to fly to New York, but JetBlue will basically do it on the cost of the fare, so if you can get a good deal on the fare, then the cost of the points that you use will be less.
In some cases, you can work it out to where it’s not that much at all, an example of that is in a few months, I’ll be flying to Aruba from Fort Lauderdale and that ticket cost me six thousand points and that’s a good deal, six thousand points around trip from Fort Lauderdale to Aruba, so to give you an indicator and that flight cash was a hundred and eighty dollars, so it’s a good deal, there are no blackout dates.
You don’t have to worry about some airlines when you have rewards, when you try to redeem rewards, they have certain dates that you can regain the wards and certain dates.
In JetBlue structure, there are no blackout dates, so you don’t have to worry about that, if they have an available seat, you can redeem that seat with your reward points, so here says redeem for any seat and points don’t expire, so you don’t have to worry about that.
Some airlines will have points that will expire over time, one year, two year, in this case for JetBlue, they don’t expire, you also have family pooling, so if you wanted to pull your points together now, you can pull your points, share your points with other family members every year.
I’m not the first year, but your anniversary year, you’ll see that you’ll start receiving 5,000 bonus points each year and it is like I stated earlier about the Aruba trip from Fort Lauderdale.
That’s 5,000 points, it cost me six thousand points to to book that flight, you can get five thousand points a year, so if you manage your points, you have a little extra, you can fly to Aruba every year.
If you wanted to have other benefits here, if you can spend fifty thousand dollars in one year, you will retain their mosaic status and mosaic status is their elite status with the airline to get VIP check-in, you get two free check bags, you get free alcohol on the planes, you get discounts on food and movies and things like that.
You get the same discount that you get with a credit card, but mosaic is a good status to have, if you’re flying on JetBlue, they are the best dentists that you can have, so that’s good.
If you get 10% back, when you redeem your points, you get 10% back, so if I redeem that thousand points, I’m going to get a hundred points back, so that’s good, no foreign transaction fees and get a hundred dollar statement of credit.
If you’re using their gateways vacation package, if you use their portal to fly, they have packages where you flight and hotel and all that stuff together, you get a hundred dollar statement credit, you also get 50% savings on eligible flight purchases, so cocktails and food need a 50% back or you get a 50% discount,so you have the chip card technology and you have fraud protection so that rounds out the the features of this card.
It’s a good card to consider, if you’re flying JetBlue, I would strongly encourage you to get this card, there is another card that you can consider, that doesn’t have an annual fee and that is the JetBlue card.
These are both Barclay cards. There are some differences in this card issue, you get less points here, instead of six times points, you get three times points and then you have no annual fee, so you don’t have to pay the ninety nine dollars a year.
A lot of the features are the same, you don’t get a check back with this credit card, so that’s something that you should consider as well, that’s all I have for you today, please give me a thumbs up, if you liked it, please tell me, if you have a question and I’ll talk to you later.
