I transferred points over yesterday to JetBlue. 🤦🏻‍♂️


I normally would not transfer MR to JB, but this 25% bonus has me considering that option for some upcoming JB trips. I have a moderate stash of MR that is rarely used. An alternative is a cash ticket with my Citidividend card’s 5% cashback this quarter. What do folks think of how these options compare? Thanks.
