Update, 1/10: The 25% Chase-JetBlue bonus ends today!


Originally posted on 11/15:

You can currently get a 25% transfer bonus from AMEX (through 11/30) or Chase (through 1/10/24) to JetBlue.

The normal AMEX to JetBlue transfer ratio is 1:0.8, so this bonus only brings it up to 1:1. AMEX only charges a cash fee for transfers to domestic airlines, something that no other bank does.

Chase points normally transfer to JetBlue at a 1:1 ratio, so this brings it to a very respectable 1:1.25.

For example, a flight from Newark to Fort Lauderdale on 12/18 is $44.90 in basic economy or $69.90 in economy:

 

Or you can book economy for 4,100 points + $5.60.

If you are fine with basic economy, that’s a value of just 0.96 cents per point ($44.90-$5.60/4,100), but if you would book economy that’s a value of 1.57 cents ($69.90-$5.60/4,100) per point. With the 25% transfer bonus, that’s makes Chase points worth 1.96 cents each.

You’ll have to make that calculation for your own travel, as the value of JetBlue points can vary greatly.

 

In other news, you can now book Hawaiian Airlines and Qatar Airlines travel with JetBlue points. Just search for travel on JetBlue.com and click use JetBlue points to search:

 

Of course, Qatar allows Hamas leaders to have a headquarters there, and I don’t recommend flying on Qatar for as long as that remains the case. But it’s still great to see JetBlue working on improving their program!

If you, a member in your household, or an authorized user has one of the following Chase cards, you can transfer points into miles:

Chase no-annual fee cards that are fantastic for earning points, but require one of the cards above for points transfers include:

  • Ink Business Cash® Credit Card has a record high 90K signup bonus and earns 5 points per dollar on cable, TV, telecom, cellular, office supply stores, and gift cards from office supply stores, plus 2 points per dollar on dining and gas ($0 annual fee). Read more here.
  • Chase Ink Unlimited has a record high 90K signup bonus and earns 1.5 points per dollar everywhere ($0 annual fee). Read more here.
  • Chase Freedom Flex has a 20K signup bonus, plus 5 points on rotating categories, 5 points per dollar on travel purchased through the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal, and 3 points per dollar on dining and drugstores ($0 annual fee). Read more here.
  • Chase Freedom Unlimited® has a signup bonus offering 3 points per dollar on up to $20K of spending in your first 12 month, afterwards earn at least 1.5 points per dollar everywhere, 5 points per dollar on travel purchased through the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal, and 3 points per dollar on dining and drugstores ($0 annual fee). Read more here.

Be aware

@dan I think it’s important to point out in the article an additional difference between Chase and Amex transfers to Jetblue. Amex charges a “Excise Tax Offset Fee”. for 100k – $60 while chase doesn’t.

dave

if you were going for status and all is the same, would you go for Jet Blue or delta?

yaacov

chase to jetblue when does it expire?

Zack

“You can currently get a 25% transfer bonus from AMEX (through 11/30) or Chase (through 1/10/24) to JetBlue.”

First time?

Is this the first time Chase has a transfer bonus to Jetblue? (I don’t remember them doing it in the past couple years)

IW

Is this worth a speculative transfer from Chase?

confused

does it make sense that the bonus appears on the account later?
because i transferred 50k points and only 50k appeared in my jetblue account

Zack

Where did you transfer from Amex or Chase?

confused

was chase. the 25% bonus came through a few minutes later

HeshiF

Isn’t the “value” of each Chase point 1.5 cents if you buy the flight through the Chase portal and have their Reserve card?

yankel

qatar always historically housed hamas leaders. have you ever endorsed flying them in the past? q suite>? MLE? etc… did your position change after 10/7?

uriel

Does Jetblue charge fees and surcharges for international award redemptions? I am looking at JFK to LHR roundtrip it only quotes me the amount of points and doesn’t allow me to see the final page as I have not yet transferred my points over. Anyway to tell how much ill be charged in fees for such a flight?

helpful

around $5 way there and $184 way back

Jack

Is this technically the best way to book savor award QSuites? 52.500 after the transfer bonus is pretty sweet, no?

HeshiF

In the second sentence of this paragraph: << If you are fine with basic economy, that’s a value of just 0.96 cents per point ($44.90-$5.60/4,100), but if you would book economy that’s a value of 1.57 cents per point. With the 25% transfer bonus, that’s makes Chase points worth 1.96 cents ($69.90-$5.60/4,100) each.

Shouldn't the calculation in parentheses be ($69.90-$5.60/3,280) ?
