The points can be used on any of JetBlue’s 1,000+ daily flights, including seats on Mint, JetBlue’s newly launched premium travel flights.

Chase credit cardholders of Chase Sapphire Reserve, Chase Sapphire Preferred and Ink Business Preferred cards can transfer Ultimate Rewards points to their TrueBlue account. This can be done 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.

With TrueBlue, there are no blackout dates with all seats available for redemption, and points never expire.
