If it matters, I was one whose AMEX transferred, not a new cardholder.
Yep husband got it for only $250 in purchases per mos , May, June, July.

Both are the cards that transferred over from Amex.

It may be a good little deal if B6 actually manages to credit the correct points in some reasonable timeframe. Otherwise, you'll have to check, double-check, call, email, etc., to get them to do it properly. For that reason I won't make any special effort to partake of the 5K offer.

It's difficult enough to get B6 to post points for flights taken, and as a Mosaic I can tell you that the TrueBlue program is the worst for accuracy and timeliness. Plus, they make you wait 15 days before they will do anything about posting missing credits. But for the important stuff such as ground and inflight ops, they are awesome. And so I keep believing in them, but take their True Blue program promises with a grain of salt.

Barclaycard, not B6, will be the party responsible for posting the points, and though in general Barclaycard doesn't have the best customer service, I can tell you from past experience- Barclaycard runs similar spend promotions on their other card products, and the points always post like clockwork.

I got my $100 companion fare code about the same time I got the offer for 5,000 bonus points if I spend $2000 in each of the months of May, June and July.

As an Amex transfer, sucks that my annual fee hits at the end of this month. Really wanted to take advantage of the offer I got in the mail of 5000 bonus points if I spend $750 in new purchases in each month (May-July). Will most likely do a product change to the annual fee free card since this isn't my go-to card.

Ditto. I've had their Apple Rewards product for some years now and have never had an issue with points posting.
As I have a higher reward minimum spend on my Hilton AMEX and have just booked most of my B6 travel for the year I don't know that I will hit the spend for the bonus, but am OK with not as I still find the B6 card worthwhile enough

I had canceled my old Amex before the transfer but still received the credit card.. which i did not activated. The day the link came on for the Jetblue plus I applied and got "sorry you already have a card". Today in the mail i received a letter that says.. During the transition to the Jetblue credit card program of Barclaycard we noticed that you expressed interest in one of our new Jetblue credit card. Now that the transition is complete, we'd like to offer you the opportunity to learn about the new jetblue Card.
So, it sounds like I can now reapply for the card and get it.

Yes, I was in the same situation even though I had cancelled the card I received the converted "JetBlue Rewards" card in the mail, but did not activate. I was able to apply for the JetBlue Plus card a few weeks ago. Most difficult application process I've ever been through as they are requesting copies of drivers lic., social security and utility bill. Ironically, I was already approved and received the JetBlue Business card, but the personal side and business side are two different business units that won't talk to each other.

On the business side I have been waiting over a month for the card to be connected properly to my TrueBlue account I'm not receiving any points (signup bonus or spend) nor the 10% rebate on points redemptions. Very frustrating. JetBlue did bonus me an additional 5K points for the frustration, but it has yet to be resolved.

YMX - My husband was approved right away for the personal card but had to jump though hoops for the business card. They could not understand why he needed two cards. He was like one is a business .. He finally got approved. Our first bill on both just came due so we will see how long before points post.

Converted from AMEX and got letter saying if I spent $250 per month May June July would get 5000 bonus points. That's 7.7 points per dollar which conservatively is 9.2% back.

Also just got a letter saying my annual fee will hit on May 31. Phoned in and was told that effective May 30 (and up to one month after fee hits) can downgrade to a no fee card and STILL get the 5000 point offer. When I phone in on May 30 I'll confirm this.

Mid cycle here

Mine came in after $500
I actually wasn't expecting it yet until the next cycle as I was just under $500 (~$470) at last statement but subsequent ~$200 charge triggered it about two weeks out from statement close.
