If you’re a JetBlue cardholder, don’t delete your emails just yet.

JetBlue and Barclays are issuing targeted offers for certain cardholders. TPG’s Scott Mayerowitz received an email with some pretty compelling spend offers and the opportunity to earn up to 40,000 bonus TrueBlue points on his JetBlue Plus Card.

He was offered — on top of the points he would already be earning on the card — an additional 5 points per dollar spent at grocery stores, drug stores and restaurants, up to 20,000 points, between now and July 31, 2021. And, he was offered an additional 20,000 points for spending $3,000 in purchases on the card between now and July 31.

TPG’s Nick Ewen did not receive an email, but checked his Plus account and received the following offer to earn 3,000 points per month (up to 9,000 points) for every dollar spent in the eligible categories:

So, even if you don’t receive a targeted email be sure to check your account to see what you’re eligible for.

This particular offer isn’t quite as compelling as the up-to-60,000-point targeted offer we saw at the end of 2020, but it’s still worth checking to see if you’ve been targeted. And, unlike last year’s offer, this one does indeed require enrollment — by May 25, 2021, for this offer —  in order to be eligible.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, credit card issuers have expanded the ways in which they provide value to their customers, since travel was more or less off-limits for more than a year. Many turned to offering bonuses on grocery store and takeout purchases as well as targeted bonus offers to incentivize customers to continue using their cards despite the downturn in travel.

The JetBlue credit cards come with other benefits as well, including:

  • Automatic Mosaic status after spending $50,000 in a calendar year
  • Spend bonuses
  • 10% of redeemed points back
  • Free checked bag on Blue fares
  • 50% discount on inflight purchases

The information for the JetBlue Plus card and JetBlue Business card has been collected independently by The Points Guy. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

JetBlue launched a range of cobranded credit cards back in 2016, giving consumers three new products to use to maximize their travels with the airline. The no-fee JetBlue Card is a good product for those just looking to earn TrueBlue points at a steady rate without committing to a credit card with an annual fee.

If you’re willing to pay a $99 annual fee, both the JetBlue Plus Card and the JetBlue Business Card are great alternatives that rack up points quickly and offer some day-of travel perks as well.

Bottom line

These targeted spending bonuses are pretty solid if you’re a JetBlue flyer and regularly get value out of your credit card. And, if you’ve had your eye on the airline’s upcoming flights across the Pond, there’s no better time to be earning extra TrueBlue points.
