If you have the good fortune of living in or frequently traveling to a JetBlue hub, such as Boston, New York (JFK) or Fort Lauderdale, you may want to consider signing up for one of the carrier’s two credit cards.

The JetBlue Plus Card comes with a 40,000-point sign-up bonus after spending $1,000 in the first 90 days and paying the annual fee. The JetBlue Business Card has a sign-up bonus of 60,000 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. The information for the Jetblue Plus 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 doesn’t have an award chart; instead the points price of a ticket is tied to the cash price. According to TPG’s latest valuations, JetBlue points are worth 1.3 cents each. However, if you redeem JetBlue points for Mint class you’ll typically get a value closer to one cent per point. So as long as you’re not redeeming points for Mint seats, these bonuses are worth $780 in JetBlue flights.

If you fly JetBlue even just a few times a year, there may be value in having a JetBlue co-branded credit card. (Photo by Zach Honig/The Points Guy)

Bottom line

These sign-up bonuses are mainly useful if you fly JetBlue and can get value from the card. For example, TPG editor Nick Ewen gets about $252 worth of value per year from his JetBlue Plus Card 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.
