JetBlue and Barclays are teaming up to roll out a brand new suite of MasterCard credit cards, designed to go hand in hand with JetBlue’s TrueBlue loyalty program. To kick off the new cards the new JetBlue Card includes 10,000 bonus trueBlue points, to help people get started booking seats via their travel rewards program.
This partnership and the new cards are designed to give cardholders more options and more travel bandwidth “We wanted to put the award-winning JetBlue experience in our customers’ wallets,” said Jamie Perry, vice president, marketing, JetBlue. “It’s simple; customers want to earn flights more quickly. With our new card, you’re able to earn points toward your trip and get there even faster than you think.” In keeping with this trend People will also be able to boost their point earning power when using their credit card to buy every day items, whether that means buying a late or buying a new set of golf clubs.
The TrueBlue ins and outs
This new MasterCard was designed for both consumers and small business owners, and in keeping with that theme, they have included a wide range of extras and perks with the card.
Barclays has outfitted the card with enhanced chip card security in order to provide users with another layer of technological security to thwart identity and data theft.
People also get access to JetBlue’s TrueBlue program, which has no blackout dates when booking seats on JetBlue-operated flights. There are no limits to how many points you can earn and points do not expire. Cardholders can also opt to pool their points with family members to reach key goals.
And there is more
In February JetBlue also inked a deal with MasterCard, making it possible for their members to pay for seats they booked on their flights using MasterPass, a mobile wallet designed by MasterCard. This technology was designed to be used via JetBlue app or their website.
JetBlue is based in New York and flies to more than 90 destinations and the Caribbean.
