Here’s an easy way to earn 50,000 JetBlue miles worth about $700. Chase has recently added JetBlue as a partner for its Chase Ultimate Rewards program. This means you can sign up for the Chase Sapphire Preferred and transfer your points directly into your JetBlue account.
Chase waives the annual fee in the first year for the Chase Sapphire Preferred. They give you 50,000 points after you spend $4,000 in the first three months.
We love Chase Ultimate Rewards because there are so many great ways to use them. You can transfer them to airlines like JetBlue, Southwest, and United. You can also transfer them to hotel partners like Hyatt or redeem them directly through Chase for Disney park tickets, hotels, or vacation packages.
How JetBlue Works
JetBlue is similar to Southwest in the way they price flights on points. They are tied to the cost of the flight. If the flight is cheap, it’s cheap on points. Here’s an example:
The $97 flight is only 6,100 points. Had the flight cost less, it would have cost less in points and vice versa. This makes JetBlue a really great option for cheap flights from the East Coast to Orlando.
Chase Sapphire Preferred
If you sign up for the Chase Sapphire Preferred, we’d love for you to use that referral link. You get the same great deal, and we get some referral points for pointing you in the right direction.
