JetBlue getting rid of double points?! Very unhappy....

Postby dmbriguy7 » Fri Dec 28, 2012 3:53 pm

I got a notice in the mail that my Amex is getting rid of two TrueBlue points for purchases made at:
gyms
US Restaurants and movie theaters
Tickets to sporting events or performances sold directly by a US event venue
purchases made at US Golf courses


They then offer two "changes" to the card:
Earning $50 back when you spend $50 or more on JetBlue Getaways vacation (aka..paying JetBlue)
Receiving 50% off certain in-flight purchases (again...paying JetBlue directly)

Then the most laughable line:
You can avoid these changes by cancelling your account

I think this is total BS. I use my card specifically when buying tickets to concerts and at restaurants. If they want to get rid of double points, they should also get rid of charging $40 for an annual fee.

so your telling me and everybody else that doesn't have a jet blue card that other than your jetblue purchases you get 2 points per dollar spent, if you entertained clients at a bunch of restaurants like Ruthchris you get 2 points per dollar?

what about redeeming. can you redeem only for jetblue or can you redeem for any hotel, airline or gift cards?

Yup...you used to get 2 points per dollar spent, which was amazing. apparently after this month, that perk is gone.

the points are used for JetBlue miles. Considering I live in NYC and that's their biggest hub, it's been a major benefit. I haven't paid for a flight across the country in years.

so what are your plans now when using a credit card are you going to stick with Jet Blue or are you going to be looking for another card, do you need any suggestions?

how did you like the card and what do you think of it now?

I just got a Chase Sapphire Preferred card that I am enjoying. I've basically stopped using the JetBlue card and will spend even less on it after next week, when the double points are officially gone.

However, I am still looking for a Citi credit card but can't make up my mind and/or are not impressed by any of their sign-up bonuses. Plus, I hate American Airlines so I refuse to get that Citi Aadvantage card.
