    I have been a True Blue member for years and also have the Jet Blue Credit card.. I am NOT happy with the “new” program. I was MUCH happier with blackout dates & being able to fly anywhere Jet Blue Flies. The new program ( few years old now) is NOT as good.. too much involved in finding the flight.. It does not seem to be nearly as good.. Having to pay an annual fee is not good either. The points also take too long to accumulate. Overall, I am going to use up my points & research a new Credit Card for a better value. SADLY disapointed !!!!!

    Yes Sheila, you’ll receive the new card and benefits that come with it.

    Hi Christine,

    We’re sorry you’re not happy with the new program. While our TrueBlue offerings are generally well-received, we’re constantly innovating and adding new ways of earning points and making it easier for our customers. With our new program you can use points to fly anywhere Jetblue flies and we’re also forming new airline partnerships to earn and redeem points with. Our credit card has always had the $40 annual fee and now we have the offer for first year free, and with the new benefits we’re hoping we only improve the experience of the card. You still earn 2x points with JetBlue and 1x point everywhere else so you can earn TrueBlue points in your everyday spending.

    I have had the AMEX card since the beginning and enjoyed the pts accrued especially the 2x pts for restaurants, sporting events, tkts for plays; this has now been taken away, the # of points needed for a flight has skyrocketed; to accumulate pts for a flight to Aruba would require spending over $40,000 dollars to get 40,000 pts to fly one way; I too will be using up my pts and credit balance and will use other cc going forward

    sorry I typed in the wrong email address; the correct one is above

    sorry again the email should end in .com not .con

    I agree with Christine. I have told countless people in the past to sign up for the now “old” program. The new program is no different than many comparable airlines. I will be moving to Venture.

    I am a long and loyal JetBlue flier but have to reconsider. The changes for longstanding members does seem worth it anymore.

    I am NOT happy about this either. This is an obvious push to the Getaways program, leaving long term customers who have had the card out. This is a terrible idea and is the only program I’ve seen started or changed that didn’t go through the JetViews surveys. I’m not surprised people are so upset about it. JetBlue, you are an airline. Why are you trying to be a travel agent, and trying to force your airplane-riding customers who have been with you from the beginning to buy your vacation packages?

    Yes, to sum up: airline great; card terrible. There are many better cards available. Unless I was travelling at least monthly on JetBlue (I guess some are), those cards are even better when purchasing JB tickets. Oh well…
