A Guide to JetBlue’s TrueBlue Loyalty Program

JetBlue's TrueBlue loyalty program offers a simple and rewarding experience for frequent flyers with various ways to earn points and elite status benefits.

JetBlue Airways, a US-based low-cost carrier, offers a loyalty program called TrueBlue, which allows members to earn points and redeem them for flights, merchandise, and more[1]. Known for its low prices and high customer experience, JetBlue provides standard features such as free Wi-Fi, complimentary snacks, more legroom, and in-flight entertainment in every seat[1].

Earning Points and Tiers

TrueBlue members earn points based on dollars spent on JetBlue flights and partner activities, rather than miles flown[2]. The program has four levels of Mosaic status, which are earned by accumulating Tiles[3]. The higher your elite tier, the more benefits you receive[4]. The four levels are:

  1. Mosaic 1: Earned after accumulating 50 Tiles. Benefits include early boarding, priority check-in and security, complimentary same-day flight change, two free checked bags, complimentary alcoholic beverages in the main cabin, and select extra legroom seats at check-in (if available) [5].
  2. Mosaic 2, 3, and 4: Earned after accumulating 100, 150, or 250 Tiles, respectively. The higher your elite tier, the more benefits you receive[4].

Redeeming Points

The most common way to redeem JetBlue points is for award flights, with the cost of an award flight directly tied to the cash price of the ticket[6]. Each JetBlue point is worth about 1.38 cents for economy class and 1.01 cents for JetBlue’s Mint (business class) seats[6].

Another lucrative way to redeem JetBlue points is for a JetBlue Vacations package[6]. To use points for a JetBlue Vacations package, select “Use TrueBlue Points” at the start of your search and use the slider tool on the payment page to select how many points you’d like to redeem[7].

JetBlue Credit Cards

JetBlue offers credit cards that allow cardholders to earn bonus points on eligible JetBlue purchases, restaurants, and grocery stores[8]. The JetBlue Plus Card and JetBlue Business Card also provide a free checked bag for the cardholder and up to three other travelers on the same reservation, making them valuable for those who fly with JetBlue at least a couple of times a year[9].

JetBlue Partnerships

JetBlue’s TrueBlue program has partnerships with Hawaiian Airlines, allowing members to earn and redeem points for flights on both airlines[10]. Additionally, JetBlue has a “Best Fare Finder” tool, which helps members compare prices for different days in an easy-to-see calendar view[11].

JetBlue Mosaic Elite Status

Mosaic is the elite status level within the TrueBlue program, offering benefits such as free same-day flight changes, free in-flight alcoholic beverages, fewer fees, more points on flights, free checked bags, and more[12]. To qualify for Mosaic status, members must earn 15,000 Mosaic-qualifying points within a calendar year or 30 segments and 12,000 points within a calendar year[12]. Another way to earn status is by spending at least $50,000 on an eligible JetBlue co-branded credit card (the JetBlue Plus Card or JetBlue Business Card) [12].

In conclusion, JetBlue’s TrueBlue loyalty program offers a simple and rewarding experience for frequent flyers. With various ways to earn and redeem points, as well as elite status benefits, TrueBlue members can enjoy a more comfortable and convenient travel experience with JetBlue.
