Jet Blue Business Credit Card from American Express Review
Jet Blue Business Credit Card Review
Summary - The Jet Blue Business Card from American Express OPEN will appeal to the business owner who flies regularly on Jet Blue Airways. You can earn double miles and also earn unlimited miles. Best of all, you can get a 5% Discount of JetBlue Flights with this card. Let's get right into checking out this card.
Bonus Miles - Let's start with Bonus Miles since every airline credit card seems to be very generous to encourage sign ups. After your first purchase, 10,000 TrueBlue Points is yours to keep. This is enough for a roundtrip ticket in the US.
Miles Formula - With this card, you can earn 8 TrueBlue Points when you book a flight on the jetblue.com website, 6 TrueBlue Points for buying a JetBlue ticket and 2 TrueBlue Points for other regular purchases. Once you have accumulated TrueBlue points, they will get transferred to your TrueBlue account. Once it is transferred, TrueBlue points are valid for one year. As long as you keep earning TrueBlue Points, they will not expire.
Savings at OPENSAVINGS merchants - American Express has a network of merchants called the OPENSAVINGS network. It includes merchants like AT&T, Fedex, Hyatt Hotels, Marriott Hotels. You can get discounts with these partners when you use this card.
Baggage Insurance - Like most other Amex cards, this card comes with baggage insurance plan for up to $1,250 for carry-on baggage and $500 for checked baggage.
Fees - The Jet Blue Business Credit Card has a very reasonable annual fee of $40.00. Most airline credit cards that allow you to earn double miles have annual fees of around $75.00 to $125.00.
JetBlue Hubs - JetBlue's main hub in the East is JFK and Long Beach is their main hub in the West Coast. Their most busy hubs include Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Long Beach, New York JFK, Orlando, Washington Dulles.
Partner Airlines - JetBlue's partner airlines include, Aer Lingus, Lufthansa, American Airlines, Emirates, South African Airways, Cape Air, and LAN.
Verdict - If you are a business owner who flies on Jet Blue Airways (live in one of their busy hubs), then you should consider the Jet Blue Business Card from American Express OPEN. The thing I like about this card is that the annual fee is really low for an airline credit card. Furthermore, you also get discounts from OPENSAVINGS merchant partners. JetBlue is also one of the few domestic airlines (along with Southwest) that does not impose a blackout date and seats are much easier to get with their TrueBlue points.
