JetBlue Chase has announced that cardholders with certain credit cards, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred, the Chase Sapphire Reserve, and the Chase Ink Business Preferred, can now transfer their credit card points to JetBlue’s frequent flyer program, TrueBlue.The news comes shortly after another transfer partner, Korean Air’s Skypass program, was removed from Chase’s Ultimate Rewards program.In many cases, points are more valuable if you transfer them to an airline partner in order to book award flights. Chase has announced the addition of JetBlue’s TrueBlue frequent flyer program as a transfer partner of the credit card issuer’s Ultimate Rewards program. The official announcement comes days after Chase quietly dropped Korean Air’s Skypass from its list of transfer partners. While all credit card points and frequent flyer miles, the most valuable type is transferable points — ones that you can transfer to airline frequent flyer partners. That’s one of the things that makes the the Chase Ultimate Rewards program so useful. When you have certain of Chase’s flagship cards, including the Chase Sapphire Preferred, the Sapphire Reserve, or the Ink Business Preferred, you can transfer the rich rewards you earn to any of Chase’s airline or hotel loyalty partners. Last week, Chase removed Korean Air’s Skypass frequent flyer program as a transfer partner. While Korean Air may seem a bit niche for Americans, it was a useful partner for those looking to fly to Asia in first class — as my wife and I did for our honeymoon— thanks to generous premium cabin award availability. For those willing to put in a little extra legwork, transferring points to Skypass and booking flights on partners was also a great way to get to Hawaii for cheap. While there’s no word on whether Chase and Korean Air will partner again — Chase described the separation as a „mutual decision“ — Chase has dedicated a great amount of resources to making the Ultimate Rewards program attractive and compelling, so consequently there’s been speculation about whether Chase plans to add new partners. The addition of JetBlue’s TrueBlue program represents the first major addition to the Ultimate Rewards partner list in several years. Most recently, Aer Lingus and Iberia airlines were added — however, their programs are linked with the British Airways frequent flyer program, which was already a transfer partner, so it was only a minimal value add. JetBlue operates over 1,000 daily flights to more than 100 destinations within the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean. While it markets itself as „New York’s hometown airline,“ it’s built a significant route map out of Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Long Beach, and Orlando as well. How useful Sapphire cardholders find the new transfer option likely depends on which card they have. JetBlue TrueBlue points can be redeemed for anywhere between about 1¢ and 1.9¢, and unlike with many legacy airlines, award, or mileage prices, are tied directly to the cash price of the ticket. A useful average point value to use is 1.3¢, according to travel website (and Insider Picks partner) The Points Guy. However, cardholders of the Chase Sapphire Reserve who use their points to purchase travel through Chase get 1.5¢ per point — a better value than the average — and will actually earn TrueBlue points on the flight. Those with the Chase Sapphire Preferred and Ink Preferred, on the other hand estrategias , only get 1.25¢ per point when purchasing travel through Chase. In their case — again, just based on the average valuation across all possible uses of points — it makes more sense to transfer points to TrueBlue in order to book the ticket. Ultimately, there is no indication of whether or not Chase will add additional transfer partners, such as an international airline with a top-rated premium cabin to replace Korean Air. However, considering Chase’s investment in the Ultimate Rewards program black friday canada goose , it would not be surprising to see in the future.
