Chase Card Services, a division of JPMorgan Chase & Co., and JetBlue today announced the addition of the airline’s TrueBlue loyalty program as the newest Chase Ultimate Rewards point transfer partner. Eligible Chase cardmembers can now transfer Ultimate Rewards points to TrueBlue points for travel on one of JetBlue’s 1,000+ daily flights to more than 100 destinations. Eligible Chase cardmembers with Ultimate Rewards have access to a total of 13 airline and hotel loyalty programs for 1:1 point transfer, reaching thousands of destinations globally.
“We are excited to add the TrueBlue program to our point transfer family giving customers the option to use Ultimate Rewards points to enjoy JetBlue’s award-winning service and inflight experience,” said Lorraine Hansen, Head of Ultimate Rewards and Loyalty Solutions at Chase. “Cardmembers can transfer points to TrueBlue at full value, making it easy to redeem for flights, including seats in Mint, JetBlue’s refreshing take on premium travel.”
Eligible Chase credit cardmembers, including Chase Sapphire ReserveSM, Chase Sapphire Preferred® and Ink Business PreferredSM, can transfer Ultimate Rewards points to their TrueBlue account in increments of 1,000 and are transferred at full 1:1 value – meaning one Ultimate Rewards point is equal to one TrueBlue point. TrueBlue points don’t expire and can be used for any seat, any time. Additionally, TrueBlue members can earn and share points together with a Family Pooling option. Plus, JetBlue offers the most legroom in coach (based on average fleet-wide seat pitch for U.S. airlines), free brand-name snacks and drinks, and free high-speed Wi-Fi, DIRECTV® and movies at every seat.
“As other airlines continue to devalue their loyalty programs for most of their customers, we’re continuing to strengthen TrueBlue and adding more value for members,” said Monique Mammoli, Director of Loyalty & Partnerships, JetBlue. “We’re delighted to welcome Ultimate Rewards and its members to our award-winning TrueBlue program. Ultimate Rewards offers a generous and simple 1:1 point transfer program allowing members to enjoy JetBlue flights even faster.”
JetBlue’s TrueBlue loyalty program rewards all customers, regardless of their travel frequency. With TrueBlue, there are no blackout dates with all seats available for redemption, and points never expire.
