JetBlue’s status match/challenge submissions end today, August 14, 2017 at 11:59 EDT. Register here.
You will also, along with those with no airline status, be registered for a 90-day challenge to quality for Mosaic for all of 2018. That requires earning 3,750 base flight TrueBlue points (spend and fly $1,250 in base fares).
The JetBlue Plus credit card public offer is at an all-time high 40,000 points. With Mint rolling out to more US and Caribbean markets, JetBlue may be newly relevant if you are in a market with their service.
Mosaic status is not often matched by other airlines to their status, so this is not a daisy-chaining play.
I Wasn’t, But I Did
I wasn’t going to bother with this Mosaic match.My wife and I did this same match last year after we netted a bunch
My wife and I did this same match last year after we netted a bunch for points from the SPG->Virgin America deal.We flew JetBlue one roundtrip New York JFK-Boston and had such a terrible irregular operations experience the return that we did not fly them again.
We flew JetBlue one roundtrip New York JFK-Boston and had such a terrible irregular operations experience the return that we did not fly them again. The only reason we are making another attempt is part of the settlement was $200 vouchers that are soon to expire.JetBlue flies Seattle-Long Beach and we are always interested in
JetBlue flies Seattle-Long Beach and we are always interested in a LA Chinese/Korean food weekend. Better, if only slightly, to have Mosaic, than not. Long Beach may be more convenient than LAX.
This route is often $200+, though we found dates that worked for under $200. I was not going to give one extra dollar to fly them when we could instead have low price Delta flights to LAX with good upgrade rates.
I may also try to get the credit card ahead of the April 2018 launch of Seattle-New York JFK Mint service.
