Is JetBlue Mosaic status on your goals list? If you’re a cardholder of the JetBlue Plus Card, you can get even closer to earning this elite status from credit card spending before the end of 2021 thanks to this current promotion:

  • Spend $10,000: Get 3,500 Mosaic Qualifying Points.
  • Spend $15,000: Earn Mosaic status and 3,500 Mosaic Qualifying Points.

Earning JetBlue Mosaic status through spending in 2021

There’s no activation required on your part, so just get spending on your JetBlue credit card and see if you can make it to the finish line. If you qualify for Mosaic status with this promotion, you’ll reap the elite status benefits through the end of 2022.

As a reminder, the carrier has already slashed elite qualification requirements for 2021, helping flyers get elite status through any of the following methods:

  • Earn 7,500 Mosaic Qualifying Points (vs. 15,000 MQPs).
  • Earn 6,000 Mosaic Qualifying Points and fly 15 segments (vs. 12,000 MQPs and 30 segments).
  • Spend $50,000 or more on the JetBlue Plus or JetBlue Business cards in a calendar year.
  • Spend $30,000 or more on the JetBlue Plus or JetBlue Business cards and earn 4,000 Mosaic Qualifying Points in a calendar year (new for 2021).

Combined with those options, this promotion for getting MQPs through spending is quite appealing if you’re within striking distance of reaching Mosaic this year and are looking forward to enhancing your flying experience throughout the new year.

Since there’s a little under two months left to take advantage of this offer, it may be worth strategizing your holiday shopping spend or seeing if you can swap around any expenses momentarily to prioritize your JetBlue Plus.

Before this promotion rolled out, I wasn’t sure if I could qualify for Mosaic this year — even with the reduced qualifications — since I don’t have any plans to fly JetBlue before the end of 2021. (Remember that you can look up your Mosaic progress on JetBlue’s website or app.)

I’m under 3,000 Mosaic Qualifying Points away, so I’m aiming to spend $10,000 on my card by the end of the year to wrap up Mosaic for 2022.

Mosaic benefits

That’s a fair bit of spending, but the reason I’m considering it is for all the extra benefits I can count on by hitting Mosaic. We value Mosaic status at around $1,685 per year. While I might not get that full worth since I don’t fly enough to earn status on my own, I do think I can maximize some of the benefits for hundreds of dollars’ worth of value (or more) next year.

Mosaic status perks include:

  • Waived same-day confirmed changes
  • Two free checked bags
  • Priority check-in, security, and boarding
  • Earning 3 extra points per dollar on JetBlue bookings
  • Dedicated customer service line
  • Complimentary alcoholic beverages onboard
  • Free upgrades to Even More Space seats at the airport
  • The ability to redeem points for Even More Space seat upgrades

Even utilizing a few of these a year will save me time and make the flight experience that much more enjoyable.

Bottom line

Although it might not make sense to spend more on your JetBlue Plus card than you would otherwise simply to earn Mosaic status, if you plan to fly JetBlue more in 2022 and can leverage Mosaic’s perks, strategizing your end-of-year spending can help you reap the rewards of elite status without going to too much extra effort.

Personally, I’m looking forward to having Mosaic status next year and will spend accordingly (and responsibly) to do so. Airports are as busy as ever, and I’m eager to get benefits like waived same-day confirmed changes (even on Blue Basic fares), access to Even More Speed priority lines, a dedicated customer service line, and free upgrades to Even More Space seats at the gate.
