Now through April 18, 2014, JetBlue is offering status matches and challenges for TrueBlue members to earn Mosaic status good through December 31, 2015 for challenges, and through 2014 for elite status matches. That’s up to 21 months of elite status if you can hit the numbers quickly.

Screen Shot 2014-03-18 at 9.52.17 AMFor members without elite status to match, you must earn 3,750 base flight TrueBlue points during the 90-day challenge period – that’s equivalent to spending $1,250 on airfares (not including taxes). If you already have elite status with a competitor, you can simply match to Mosaic status for the rest of 2014. Here’s which programs and elite tiers qualify:

  • Alaska Airlines®: Mileage PlanTM MVP® Gold or MVP® Gold 75k
  • American Airlines®: AAdvantage Platinum® or Executive Platinum®
  • Delta®: SkyMiles Medallion® Gold, Platinum or Diamond
  • Southwest®: Rapid Rewards® A-List Preferred or Companion Pass
  • United®: MileagePlus® Premier® Gold, Platinum or Premier1K®
  • US Airways®: Dividend Miles Preferred Gold, Platinum or Chairman

Looks like JetBlue is making an aggressive push to poach other airlines’ elites – including those with just mid-tier status like AAdvantage Platinum and SkyMiles Gold Medallion, ahead of the launch of their new transcontinental Mint business class product this summer, as well as to energize their existing flyers to goose their travel over the coming months. Although it’s not unusual for airlines to offers status matches and challenges (here’s a list of current offers), what’s interesting is the breadth of this offer and just how many potential flyers it encompasses.

So if you have some travel coming up and have been thinking about trying out JetBlue, now might just be the time to do it – especially if you already have status with a one of the other airlines mentioned and are curious to test out Mosaic status.

JetBlue launched TrueBlue Mosaic this year.

As a reminder here are the benefits of Mosaic status:

  • Free second checked bag for everyone flying on the member’s reservation (2nd bag usually costs $40, and third $75)
  • Free Even More™ Speed, providing expedited security at 36 airports for everyone flying on the member’s reservation
  • Early boarding with early access to overhead bin space for everyone flying on the member’s reservation
  • Ability to use TrueBlue points to purchase Even More™ Space seats for extra legroom (these seats have 38 inches of pitch, and come with Even More Speed privileges)
  • Access to a dedicated 24/7 customer service line
  • Three bonus TrueBlue points per dollar spent for a total of nine points per dollar when booking on jetblue.com (instead of the base 3 points per $1, plus 3 bonus points per $1 when booking on jetblue.com)

    I think your math is off on the earning. According to JetBlue, if you book your flights on JetBlue.com, you would only need to spend $625 on base airfare.

    Per the terms & conditions on the promo page: “Base flight points are the 3 points per $1 you earn on the base fare of your individual JetBlue flight.” So it’s $1,250, not $625. The 3 extra points you get for booking through JetBlue.com are bonus points not base points.

    It also seems you earn 15,000 bonus points immediately upon qualifying for Mosaic.

    This status does not give much they should make a more elite status

  • James

    This may be a long shot but last Sept American had a sign up promo code that granted automatic AAdvantage Platinum Status until the end of the calendar year. Does anyone know of a similar free upgrade promo for any of the above rewards programs?

  • mike

    Does the SW companion pass match mean you get 2fer Jetblue tkts???

  • Nick Ewen

    Any thoughts on whether previously booked flights on JetBlue.com will qualify for the extra bonus points? I emailed yesterday for the match but have a flight next Thursday and another the following Friday, and I’d love to snag the extra points!

  • Eric

    Would this promotion exclude miles credited to my true blue account from a flight booked and flown on Emirates?
