[Expired] [Targeted] JetBlue Cardholders: Book A Flight & Get $50 Off Transportation

Deal has expired, view more JetBlue deals by clicking here.

The Offer

Some Barclays JetBlue cardholders have received this offer via e-mail. Subject lines are ‘$50 cash back? Just. Plane. Awesome’ and ‘Reminder:$50 cash back? Just. Plane. Awesome.’

  • Purchase a JetBlue flight and spend $50 or more on eligible transportation purchases with your JetBlue Card from 12/1/18 to 2/28/19 and get $50 cash back in the form of a statement credit.

The Fine Print

  • This offer is for select cardmembers and is not transferable.
  • If you close your account or switch to another product, other than a JetBlue product, during the promotional period, you may no longer be eligible for this promotion.
  • Cardmembers who receive this offer and purchase a new JetBlue flight and spend $50 in eligible transportation purchases with transaction dates from 12/1/2018 to 2/28/2019 will earn a $50 statement credit.
  • Eligible transportation purchases are limited to, ride share transactions like Lyft and UBER, taxi and limousines, and parking lots and garages.
  • To receive the statement credit, the cardmember’s account must be open, active and in good standing at the time of fulfillment.
  • All statement credits earned will appear on the cardmember’s statement 6-8 weeks after the end of the promotion.

Our Verdict

Seems like a good deal as I imagine most people will be able to spend $50 or more in transportation before the end of February. Deal is really only useful if you need to book a JetBlue flight though.

Does anyone know if you could purchase the flight with JetBlue points and still get this $50 offer, or would you have to pay for the entire airfare with the JetBlue credit card?

Same question. Specifically, would paying the $5.60 security fee on the JetBlue card (and the rest of the airfare with points) be enough to trigger the offer?

I went to Peru in December with points and I was still able to use this. So you are good to go.

Which ride sharing service did you use? How long did it take for the $50 credit to post on your account?

I looked up the ones I’d gotten, and the first was titled “$50 cash back? Just. Plane. Awesome” received on 29 Nov 2018. The second was titled “Reminder:$50 cash back? Just. Plane. Awesome.” received on 16 Jan 2019.

I don’t know if I would ever fly JetBlue again after the fiasco today. JetBlue cancelled 41% of their flights today due to “weather” related issues. I was booked on a 9:00 AM flight form Newark to West Palm Beach only to find out Saturday afternoon that JetBlue cancelled the flight today and couldn’t rebook me until Monday night on a flight out of JFK. I ended up having to pay 2.5 times to fly on United which somehow managed to fly every scheduled flight from Newark to West palm Beach today – the ones that JetBlue said they had to cancel because of the weather.

I guess the weather only affects JetBlue airplanes and no one elses. Never again JetBlue.

As a followup, here are the percentage of flight cancelled today:

JetBlue 41%

Spirit 10%

Southwest 5%

American 3%

United 2%

Delta 0.2%

Interesting figures. Are these numbers all talking about the same location? If not, they could be skewed by the fact that certain airlines operate a higher percentage of their flights out of areas that got hit harder during the storm. For instance, while all of the airlines listed have hub operations in New York, JetBlue also has a mass of hub in Boston, which also got hit hard. that could contribute to so many of their flights getting cancelled.

This will be a bit off topic and I apologize in advanced but is there any trustable broker that will buy JetBlue TruBlue points?
