Barclays JetBlue Business Card – 40,000 Point Bonus

Update: The expiry date of 6/29 has been removed and still showing the 40,000 point bonus. I’m unmarking this as expired and reposting. Thanks to reader Heartlanta

Link is still showing as active, but the 6/29 date is clearly marked so I’m marking this as expired. For a list of the best current credit card bonuses, click here.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Barclays has increased the sign up bonus on the JetBlue Business card to 40,000 points after $1,000 in spend within the first 90 days

 

Card Benefits

  • Valid until June 29th, 2018
  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 6x points per dollar spent on jetBlue purchases
    • 2x points per dollar spent on restaurants and office supply stores
    • 1x points per dollar spent on all other purchases
  • 10% uncapped rebate on all points you redeem
  • 5,000 anniversary points on card renewal
  • Annual fee of $99
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Free checked bag for you and up to three travelling companions when you use your jetBlue card to book a jetBlue flight
  • Mastercard World Elite Benefits

Our Verdict

As far as I know the bonus on this card has always been 30,000 points after $1,000 in spend so this is a 10,000 point increase. That being said the sign up bonus on the personal card has gone as high as 60,000 points so I feel this bonus is still on the lower side. Barclays usually requests business documents as well, so that’s something to keep in mind.  The nice thing is that this won’t report to your personal credit report.  JetBlue award flights are tied to their cash price, more on that here.

We will be adding this to our list of the best credit card bonuses.. As always if you have questions regarding Barclays credit cards, read this post first.

Now that Barclays is stickier on approvals I am left wondering which card I want to get each ~6 months. Not an easy choice

DP: Got the Aviator Biz late last night. Approved with 10K limit. Legit international business with 6k in income, 810 TU score. 0/6, 4/24, only other inquiry on TU was an old CitiBiz.

Applied for this card & called recon. Explained that I had two lines of expenses, travel a lot internationally for work & the business and would like to switch my business fully to them to have 2 chip & pin cards (all honest).Said I didn’t want new credit, just to shift some of the Aviator credit over. Was told that that shouldn’t be a problem, but they’d have to hard pull TU a second time. I agreed, she went on hold, acknowledged that nothing had changed, asked a few ID verification questions, denied me and told me to have a good day.

Weird DP, wasn’t expecting to get it, but also wasn’t expecting ^^^ sequence of events.

It’s probably also worth mentioning that if you hold the personal and business versions of the JetBlue Plus card, it seems you get a 20% rebate on points, pushing the value of each mile as high as 1.7-1.8cpp. These cards are very underappreciated in my opinion.

That turned out well for anything else that wasn’t working how the banks intended it to in our favor right?

Oh wait

Please link the “more on that here” about Barclay’s ticket pricing in the second to last paragraph. Thank you!

Any data on if they report business cards to credit bureaus? The link above to the “about barclaycard” says its inconclusive

I just got this card a month ago at 30k. Will Barclays match to the 40,000 offer?

I got the personal JB Plus card and the offer increased a couple weeks after. They matched the new offer, but if I remember right it has to be within 30 days of account opening.

Barclays Jet Blue Business card does not report to personal.
(They waived me the new annual fee and I checked my credit karma (TU and EQ) and Experian, they don’t have this account)
meanwhile I have 57 inquiries on Experian… Omg…

Are there any additional data points on whether JetBlue Business posts to your personal credit report? I’m at 4/24, but the extra points would be valuable to me in the short term.

Has anyone applied for this card recently with an “active” credit report? I’m way past the 6/24 month people were talking about for the Arrival+ card, so don’t know if Barclays is being as strict with co-brands.

Just approved for my 3rd card. Required no biz verification documents (though I have a valid business)

This bonus is still valid (now with no listed expiration date), just so you know.

My question is…is Barclays as strict about approvals on business cards as they are for personal cards? I do have a legitimate business with an EIN and have never applied for a business card with them. However, if I were to apply for a personal card with Barclays today I would surely be denied based on the criteria they used. Anyone have any knowledge on that?

I applied as a sole proprietor on the AA business Aviator and was only asked for identity verification. My wife applied for Aviator business card and was instantly approved.

They will only approve once every six months though, from what I read.

I haven’t applied for a Barclays card in about two years. But I heard they were strict beyond the once every 6 month rule if you have a lot of applications. Was just curious if that also applied to biz cards as well or if the process was different.
