Jet Blue Plus Card review – Save on bags, $450 worth of points


The JetBlue Plus MasterCard isn’t the most rewarding option for everyday spending, but it can easily pay for itself if you make use of the JetBlue-related benefits including free checked bags and discounts on food, beverages, and movies in-flight.

30,000 point intro offer. If you use the points wisely, you could get $450 in JetBlue airfare value out of them.

5,000 point anniversary bonus. You get this every year you hold the card, which helps take some of the sting out of the annual fee.

Free first checked bag. This saves you $40 roundtrip on many JetBlue flights versus paying for your first checked bag. You also get 50% off inflight purchases and 10% of your points back when you redeem your points.

Miles never expire. JetBlue True Blue points don’t expire, whether or not you have a credit card.


$99 annual fee. No getting around it – you pay it upfront.

Underwhelming premium travel protection. Unlike many travel credit cards with this high of an annual fee, the JetBlue card doesn’t have the kind of trip cancellation or trip delay coverage you’ll find on cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Citi ThankYou Premier.

Few airline partners. The only other airline you can use your points for is Hawaiian Airlines, and the value for using them that way isn’t great.
