#3 in Best Airline Rewards Programs

Overview

The JetBlue TrueBlue program best serves travelers based in East Coast cities like Boston, New York City and Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Florida, who primarily fly domestically and to the Caribbean. Members earn points for every dollar spent on JetBlue flights and JetBlue Vacations packages. You can also earn points on flights booked with seven partner airlines, as well as on hotel stays, car rentals and purchases with retail partners like Amazon and through the ShopTrue retail portal. Earn even more by making purchases with one of the JetBlue credit cards from Mastercard. You can use those points to cover the cost of future air travel on JetBlue or Hawaiian Airlines, as well as the cost of JetBlue Vacations packages.
