JetBlue’s Business card comes with a sign-up bonus of 40k. I have the personal card but wanted the business one to top up my TrueBlue points which are now invaluable given my move to Puerto Rico. I applied online and did not receive instant approval. I waited and was disappointed when a thin envelope came in the mail. Given the 5/24 climate, it’s never a surprise when I am rejected. In this case, however, I was thrown off for the reason of rejection:
Sufficient credit is available on your account issued by Barclays Bank Delaware.
For the sake of data, I have 3 cards with Barclays: Aviator, Arrival, and JetBlue. There is a healthy credit line but nothing compared to the obscene amounts given by Citi. The rejection is baffling because I have never seen ‘too much available credit’ as a reason to reject a business application which is usually treated differently than a personal one.
Time to call recon, though I have not had much luck with that lately (see Chase Iberia Rejection).
