Here’s some great news if you’re looking to stock up on JetBlue TrueBlue points. The standard sign-up bonus on The JetBlue Plus Card is 30,000 TrueBlue points after spending $1,000 in the first three months. But, there’s currently an offer that will give you double the points as a sign-up bonus.

That’s right, you can score a 60,000 TrueBlue-point sign-up bonus after you spend just $1,000 within the first three months of account opening. Note that the $99 annual fee isn’t waived the first year and you’ll have to pay it before the sign-up bonus will be awarded. This offer is only available for “first-time cardmembers with new accounts only.”

Is the card worth it? If your airport is served by JetBlue, the answer is certainly yes. TPG‘s Nick Ewen extracted $569 of value from the card his first year, and that was with the standard 30,000-point sign-up bonus. Based on TPG’s latest valuations, the 60,000 point sign up bonus would get you at least $780 in free JetBlue flights alone.

Beyond the lucrative sign-up bonus, the JetBlue Plus Card is a no-brainer due to its 6x earning on JetBlue flights, free checked baggage allowance, 10% rebate on award redemptions and 50% savings off in-flight purchases. Plus, an 5,000-point anniversary bonus makes up for two-thirds of the annual fee in future years.

As a data point, I signed up for this offer. The application went to pending, so I called Barclaycard’s reconsideration line (866-408-4064). I was routed directly to an analyst who confirmed some aspects of my application. After a short hold, I was able to be approved immediately by transferring part of my credit line from another Barclaycard credit card account. Shortly later, I received an email confirming the approval:

Bottom Line

This is an excellent offer on an already great JetBlue card. With the standard 30,000-point sign-up bonus, this card already provided tons of value. Now, it’s even more of a no-brainer given that the sign-up bonus has been doubled.
