The Fine Print

  • Offer is valid for Point Transfers to TrueBlue completed by 11:59 PM ET April 30, 2017

Our Verdict

JetBlue were added as a transfer partner in late 2015 and this is the first time Citi have offered a transfer bonus for them, you can view a complete history of all other transfer partners for Citi here. You can view how much JetBlue points are worth here. You can also read our reviews of the Barclaycard JetBlue cards here (detailed review of JetBlue Plus here).

I don’t think the normal transfer rate is worth considering at all, but with the 50% transfer bonus it does become considerably more attractive (still not worth it unless you get that top tier exchange rate). I think this is probably best value for people that aren’t concern about completing flights on international routes in premium cabins, in that case JetBlue isn’t a good option for you.

Let me know your thoughts about this transfer bonus in the comments below.

transferred a bunch from ty to jetblue. thanks
transfer was instant…and instantly flowed from sub to family pool head of household.

This is not an initial contribution from the sub account to the family pool, right? Did you set up the sub to contribute 100% to the family pool? I assume you don’t have to pay a fee to transfer from the sub to the family pool.

no. we have a family pool set up already.
i transferred a ~200k TY for ~240K Trueblue, it basically goes straight to the main pool acct

Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the heads up! The points transferred instantly and I booked two one-way tickets to Hawaii for 17,000 TrueBlue points (about 14,000 ThankYou points) per ticket. This ended up providing over two cents of value per ThankYou point, compared to the cash price.

Is there a chart for redeeming JB points for Hawaiian flights? I read another blog showing a much higher rate.

Sometimes you can get a value of 1.8 with jet blue points.
$566 round trip NY to POP, and its 31,300 points, Thats 1.8.

Now its $526 or 28,300 points, thats 1.85.
Points is: Jet blue even with their usual fixed value can be higher then TY Prestige 1.3 fixed value.

Why do you always refer to singular companies and brands in plural? “Jetblue were”, “Citi are”, “Citi have”, etc. It’s kind of annoying.

I agrees with yous. I can’ts stands iliterites peoples. He do not know how to write properlys like yous and me does.

He’s English.

Can you transfer pts from an AT&T Access card?

You can transfer those points only if you own a card that gives you the ability to transfer… If you have just att card, then no. If you also have a prestige/premier etc then you can transfer the points earned from att card as well

Very tempted by this. AF is due in June, so I need to park points somewhere.

Tried to redeem some more but it turns out that you cant transfer points that are earned from the checking (taxable) portion of thank you points earned. It gave me an error and 2 csrs confirmed it. They said the points earned from the checking account or good for anything except for transfers.

But they gave me 5000 points for the inconvenience..
