Barclays jetBlue Plus Card – 60,000 Point Bonus

Update 2/3/20: Reposting as there is now a direct link. Hat tip to reader Yawgoog

Our Verdict

This is the highest bonus we’ve seen on this card, it was last offered in late 2017/early 2018. The standard bonus is 40,000 and we frequently see 50,000 points but this 60,000 offer is extremely rare. There is also a 60,000 point bonus on the business version of this card. JetBlue award flight prices are linked to the cash price of a ticket, much like Southwest. If you have any questions about Barclays credit cards, read this post first.

If you can make use of jetBlue flights then I do think this is a great offer and I will be adding it to the list of the best credit card bonuses.

Mine is lol/24. Went to pending decision page.

I’m above 6/24, but thought worth a try as do put regular spend on my other Barclaycard account. Got pending, and checking the online status it’s now showing declined.

That is so much juice for so little spendy and minor AF… wish I wasn’t lol/24 too.

Initially pending, now declined at 8/24.

Looks like this is YMMV. I only have the 40,000 offer in the app.

You sure that’s not for the non-plus version? That’s the first thing that came up for me but it switched to this one quickly.

All we need now is a public 60k offer with first AF waived. I can dream, right?

Applied right away, went pending. Called and approved after a quick chat. High number on inquiries but was only 4/24

Wow, fascinating that you used a 5th slot for this instead of grabbing Chase, then shooting for this at 5/24. You must know something we don’t.

Maybe he already has all the Chase cards he wants.

Impossible.

Wasting your 5/24 slot on a barclays card.

Deborah

Well that’s a rude comment. You are thoroughly familiar with his circumstances and reasons and he asked for your thoughts?

Harry

Jeez so sensitive. Why would anyone waste a 5/24 slot on a non Chase card. I am guessing Will doesnt know what he is doing.

T&C indicate no bonus for previous account holders. Is that firm like Amex lifetime policy?

Mike

They want me send in a copy of my driver’s license and a copy of a bill. Is this pretty much the standard when applying for any Barclay card?

Frank

Yes via snail mail

Carlos

Ouchie. Had to do that a couple years ago. Still declined. Good luck!

JJ

If I have the no-AF JetBlue card, can I apply for this card? Or do I have to cancel my no AF card first?

Marco
Marco

You should be able to have both.

It’s a shame they never offer any upgrade incentives. I appreciate when Amex gives basically a full SUB for upgrade on cards like the Hilton ones. Oh well…

Eman

I already had the standard non-AF jetBlue card and I just got approved for this AF one. I’ve had the standard one for about 2.5 years. I just hope they still honor the 60,000 points once I spend the $1000.

Any clue on the expiration date on this?

Here’s a public link for the business card, add an AU (and an AU purchase) and get an additional 10k points. Am I correct that a business card shouldn’t add to your 5/24? https://trueblue.jetblue.com/jetblue-business-card

Scott

Anyone have data points about applying for the personal AND business versions of the card? I’m below 5/24. For 120k points (60k each) and the perks this sounds like something I could pursue. I’m have the full array of Chase personal and business cards so this is not IN SPITE of a new Chase app.

Louis

If I currently hold this JetBlue Plus card (got it late 2017/early 2018 during 60,000), is there a way for me to get this again? Cancel and apply? Do I need to have a term between cancellation and applying?
