Check To See If You’re Targeted For An AMEX Membership Rewards To JetBlue Transfer Bonus

Click on the link above and login to your AMEX account to see if you’re targeted for a 25% transfer bonus from AMEX to JetBlue through 10/1.

Typically, it’s not worth transferring AMEX Membership Rewards points to JetBlue points as 250 AMEX points normally convert into just 200 JetBlue points.

Unfortunately AMEX charges a fee to transfer points to US airlines. That adds 60 cents for every 1,000 points transferred with a maximum fee of $99 per transaction.

If you have a JetBlue Plus consumer or business card you’ll get a 10% rebate when redeeming JetBlue points. If you have both you’ll get a 20% rebate.

Let’s take a look at the value of JetBlue points on several routes.

  • A flight from JFK to Washington DC on 8/28 is $56.17 or 3,200 points+$5.60, a value of 1.58 cents per point. JetBlue Plus Cardholders will effectively pay 2,880 points, a value of 1.76 cents per point. JetBlue Plus Consumer+Business Cardholders will effectively pay 2,560 points, a value of 1.98 cents per point.
  • A flight from JFK to Chicago on 9/6 is $68.96 or 4,100 points+$5.60, a value of 1.55 cents per point. JetBlue Plus Cardholders will effectively pay 3,690 points, a value of 1.71 cents per point. JetBlue Plus Consumer+Business Cardholders will effectively pay 3,280 points, a value of 1.93 cents per point.
  • A flight from Los Angeles to Orlando on 9/16 is $93.19 or 5,900 points+$5.60, a value of 1.48 cents per point. JetBlue Plus Cardholders will effectively pay 5,310 points, a value of 1.65 cents per point. JetBlue Plus Consumer+Business Cardholders will effectively pay 4,720 points, a value of 1.86 cents per point.
  • A flight from JFK to Los Angeles on 12/5 is $108.24 or 7,000 points+$5.60, a value of 1.47 cents per point. JetBlue Plus Cardholders will effectively pay 6,300 points, a value of 1.63 cents per point. JetBlue Plus Consumer+Business Cardholders will effectively pay 5,600 points, a value of 1.83 cents per point.
  • A flight from Fort Lauderdale to Havana on 8/28 is $88.40 or 2,600 points+$30.60, a value of 2.22 cents per point. JetBlue Plus Cardholders will effectively pay 2,340 points, a value of 2.47 cents per point. JetBlue Plus Consumer+Business Cardholders will effectively pay 2,080 points, a value of 2.78 cents per point.

On average, you should be able to get a value of at least 1.5 cents per JetBlue point, 1.7 cents per JetBlue point if you have a JetBlue Plus card, or 1.9 per JetBlue point if you have a JetBlue Plus Consumer+Business Card.

It’s not a mind-blowing redemption like you can get with today’s Virgin Atlantic transfer bonus to fly in Delta business class or ANA first class miles or when booking a last-minute Cleveland-NYC flight for 7.5K points instead of paying $500, but it’s a decent value for your AMEX points that is somewhat dampened by the AMEX fee for transfers to US airlines.

How much would virgin Atlantic be to fly delta one jfk -lax?

Dan, the Jet Blue card gives double points on restaurant charges, which is a decent redemption especially when you have both the personal and the business cards. I think for restaurant spending its underrated, especially since they have frequent sales and availability.
