JetBlue Will Match Your Elite Frequent Flier Status from Other Airlines
The offer is available for a limited time.
JetBlue is trying to lure frequent fliers from other carriers to its own loyalty program.
For the next month, frequent fliers with elite status on select other airlines can apply to JetBlue’s match program and be granted Mosaic status in JetBlue's True Blue program for the rest of the year.
Members of the loyalty programs for Virgin America, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta, Southwest Airlines and United just need to send in proof of their elite status (a copy of their statement or current credentials card will do) to be considered for the program.
After their application is approved, JetBlue will send an email informing them that they are now Mosaic members. Benefits start immediately and last until December 31, 2017. But for those who want to extend their membership through next year, JetBlue is also holding a Mosaic Challenge.
With the challenge, new Mosaic members will have 90 days to earn 3,750 base flight points (by spending $1,250 on JetBlue flights) and have their new status extended through 2018. Travelers can also buy True Blue points, use a JetBlue credit card or shop with select partners to meet the 3,750 point minimum.
Elite Mosaic members get perks like two free checked bags, waived change and cancellation fees, access to expedited security lines at the airport, early boarding at the gate, and complimentary alcohol during flights.
Frequent fliers must apply for the status match by August 14.
