If you’ve been waiting to sign up for any of JetBlue’s three credit cards, now is the time to act, since all three cards currently feature increased sign-up bonuses. Here are the current offers:

  • The JetBlue Card: Earn 15,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first 90 days
  • The JetBlue Plus Card: Earn 50,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first 90 days and paying the annual fee
  • JetBlue Business Card: Earn 50,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first 90 days and earn 10,000 points when a purchase is made on an employee card within 90 days of account opening

TPG’s latest valuations peg JetBlue points at 1.3 cents each. So, the 15,000-point bonus is worth about $195, the 50,000-point bonus is worth about $650 and the 60,000-point bonus is worth about $780. Although these elevated bonuses aren’t as strong as many of the top limited-time offers for May, nor will they get you $1,000 in value or more, they can still be valuable if fly on JetBlue even just a few times a year. Let’s quickly consider each of the cards.

Bottom Line

These increased offers, which will only be around for a limited time, are mainly useful if you fly JetBlue and can get value from the card. For example, TPG Points & Miles Editor Nick Even believes the JetBlue Plus Card provides him about $252 worth of value per year for just a $99 annual fee. So, do the math and see if one of the JetBlue cards might also be a good fit for you.
