The JetBlue the higher-tier JetBlue Plus are airline rewards cards. If you meet the credit score requirement and are approved for either card, you’ll earn points on your purchases, and plenty of perks when you spend on JetBlue-operated flights.
But there are stark differences between the two, particularly in its initial bonus and rewards earnings. The JetBlue Plus is far superior in these categories, but it comes with a $99 annual fee.
Here is how the JetBlue vs. JetBlue Plus cards compare:
Annual fee: Jet Blue $0; JetBlue Plus, $99. Jet Blue wins.
Initial bonus: Jet Blue, 10,000 points when you spend $1,000 in first 90 days; JetBlue Plus, 40,000 points when you spend $1,000 in the first 90 days. JetBlue Plus wins.
Rewards: JetBlue, 3 points per $1 spent on Jet Blue purchases; 2 points at restaurants and grocery stores; 1 point on all other purchases; JetBlue Plus, 6 points per $1 spent on Jet Blue purchases; 2 points at restaurants and grocery stores; 1 point on all other purchases. JetBlue Plus wins.
Introductory APR: JetBlue and Jet BluePlus both offer 0% interest for12 months on balance posted within the first 45 days. Tie
Regular APR: JetBlue and Jet BluePlus, 17.74% - 26.74% (V), based on creditworthiness. Tie.
Foreign Transaction: Neither the JetBlue or JetBlue Plus charges a foreign transaction fee. Tie.
Other benefits: JetBlue, 50% off in-flight food and beverage purchases; JetBlue Plus, 50% off in-flight food and beverage purchases; free first checked bag for primary cardholder; 5,000 bonus points on your card anniversary; 10% of points back every time you redeem. JetBlue Plus wins.
JetBlue Plus is the clear winner, if you’re a regular JetBlue flyer and will spend enough to recoup the $99 annual fee. If you check four free bags in a year, at $25 per checked bag, the $99 annual fee will have paid for itself.
If you’re a business owner, you’ll need an excellent credit score to qualify for the JetBlue Business card. It offers most of the same features and perks as the JetBlue Plus, but without the introductory 0% APR for balance transfers. It also charges a $99 annual fee.

JetBlue points are worth 1 cent to 1.7 cents each. The value of JetBlue points depends on how you redeem them. JetBlue points values also change over time. But you currently need 30,500 JetBlue points for a $419 flight from New York City to Los Angeles – a value of 1.4 cents per point.… read full answer
In general, the number of points needed for a flight fluctuates along with the actual fare price in dollars. JetBlue’s website tells us this straight up, saying, “While redemption levels vary, the amount of points a certain trip requires is directly tied to our current fares, and when flight fares are lower, so are Award Flight point fares.” That means JetBlue point values should remain fairly constant and not spike and crater all the time.
There are a few other key things you should be aware of regarding this frequent flyer program, too. For example, you can’t redeem JetBlue points for things like gift cards, but you can trade them for magazine subscriptions. And that can actually get you some high point values.
