The JetBlue Card offers good earnings on JetBlue purchases, and a decent rate on dining and grocery shopping.
Earn 3x points on eligible JetBlue purchases, 2x points at restaurants and grocery stores and 1x points on all other purchases.
The JetBlue Card has a competitive rewards earnings rate, particularly for a $0-annual-fee card, and sits squarely in the middle of the pack when compared with other top travel cards. For example, both the American Express® Gold Card and the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card beat the JetBlue Card on rewards earnings rate, but the JetBlue Card comes out on top when compared to other popular airline cards.
To estimate a rewards earnings rate per dollar spent for the average consumer, we used U.S. Bureau of Labor spending data and multiplied it by the value of each card’s points or miles. Here’s how the JetBlue Card stacks up:
Average rewards earned per $1 spent
It’s also important to note that with the recent partnership between JetBlue and American Airlines, you can choose to earn JetBlue points for your flight when you fly American Airlines, and vice versa.
What are JetBlue points worth?
We peg the value of JetBlue points at an average of 1.6 cents per point, compared with an average value of 1.3 cents per mile or point for airline programs overall. This means that JetBlue points are worth about 30% more than the average airline mile or point (1.3 points), with a higher value for points or miles than American, United, Delta and Southwest.
