JetBlue enthusiasts can take their loyalty to a new level with the JetBlue Plus Card. For a $99 annual fee, earn a hefty 6 points per $1 spent on JetBlue purchases plus a fat 30,000-point bonus if you spend $1,000 within the first 90 days of opening the account.
Chock-full of value, the JetBlue Plus card is well worth the $99 annual fee, especially if you fly at least a few times a year and want to earn points to use on even more air travel. The sweet sign-up bonus could be enough for a round-trip ticket within the U.S.
This card offers big rewards for those who spend big on JetBlue travel — it pays 6 points for every $1 spent on JetBlue purchases, which includes flights, JetBlue vacation packages and in-flight purchases. You can also earn 2 points for every $1 spent at restaurants and grocery stores and 1 point per $1 on all other purchases.
If your heart and travel plans are likely to be true blue to JetBlue, this card is an awesome addition to your wallet. It has some of the loftiest rewards in its class for spending within its brand and the perks that come with it, like a free checked bag and savings on in-flight purchases are frequent-flier friendly. The one thing it’s missing is airport lounge access, so if that’s important to you, you should pair this with a travel card that offers it.
And because the rewards for other spending are only OK, this probably shouldn’t be the only credit card you carry.
Who should get this card
This card is a good fit for someone who flies a few times a year on JetBlue with at least one checked bag.
