And I can’t fight this feeling anymore. I’ve forgotten what I started fighting for.
Chase rejecting you on recon? All your Southwest points burned? No chance of requalifying for a companion pass? Then do as I did and take your FICO to Barclays and point your AwardWallet to JetBlue.
After enrolling in the JetsBlue Points Match, I completed step 2 of my conversion from Southwest to JetBlue by applying for a Barclays JetBlue Plus Card. That comes with a sign-up bonus of 30k points, 5k anniversary points, and 10% rebate on all points redeemed. The $99 fee isn’t waived but the value of those three benefits more than makes up for it. Incidentally, Lucky just wrote a piece on it so you can find his complete breakdown of the card on his site.
After I take the Points Match qualifying flight and spend 1k on the credit card, I’ll have 105k JetBlue points to utilize. I’ve never flown on JetBlue before but I’ve only heard good things. I will miss Southwest but what else can I do if Chase won’t participate in my points way of life?
