This may be a more narrowly targeted offer that some of the other offers we have seen of late because of my Membership Rewards cards, only the Amex EveryDay® Card is showing this offer. card_name and card_name have not been targeted.
Overall, this may not be a hugely exciting offer but it’s still a pretty good one to be targeted for if you’re a JetBlue flyer.
The low spending requirement to trigger the rebate is good news, and the fact that the target doesn’t have to be met in a single transaction and the fact that inflight purchases as well as various fees will count towards it, means that this should be a very easy offer to use.
It’s worth keeping in mind that only flights originating in the US will trigger this offer (so you can’t use it on a cheap flight originating in London, Amsterdam, or Paris), but this will still work to reduce the cost of a transatlantic flight out of Boston or New York just as it will reduce the cost of any domestic booking.
Don’t forget that although the offer has to be triggered by the end of November, travel can be for as far in the future as JetBlue will allow you to book, so just because you don’t need to fly in the next few weeks, doesn’t mean that this offer can’t save you cash on a future booking.
JetBlue fans (and disgruntled Delta flyers with access to JetBlue’s network) should check the targeted offers section of their Amex accounts to see if they have a “spend $200 and save $50” JetBlue deal waiting for them.
Unfortunately, it looks like the cards being targeted won’t offer you a great return on your spending (in terms of the points that you’ll earn), but the $50 rebate that’s on offer should make up for that.
