JetBlue has just brought back a status match and challenge to their Mosaic tier, but only between July 14 and August 14, 2017. They offered a similar promotion last year, though it expired on May 31, 2016, so this is the first time we’ve seen this promotion in over a year. There are two methods through which you can qualify, depending on whether you have status with a competitor or not.

Benefits of JetBlue Mosaic

Under normal circumstances you can qualify for JetBlue Mosaic status in one of three ways:


The benefits of JetBlue Mosaic status include the following:

  • No change or cancelation fees on tickets
  • First and second checked bag free
  • Expedited security
  • Priority boarding
  • An additional three points per dollar spent on JetBlue (for a total of nine points per dollar spent on
  • Complimentary alcoholic beverages onboard
  • Dedicated customer service phone number
  • Discounted upgrades to Even More Space seating
  • 15,000 bonus points when you qualify for Mosaic status (though you don’t get that if you earn it through a status match or challenge)

Specific to the upgrades, Mosaic members can upgrade to Even More Space seating for the following number of points:

  • A $10 seat upgrade costs 200 points
  • A $25 seat upgrade costs 300 points
  • A $45 seat upgrade costs 500 points
  • A $90 seat upgrade costs 1,000 points

I value JetBlue points at ~1.4 cents each, so that represents a huge discount over the paid cost of an upgrade. That means you can upgrade a New York to Los Angeles flight to Even More Space seating for just 1,000 points, which are worth ~$14.

Lots of legroom in JetBlue Even More Space seating

JetBlue Mosaic Status Match

You’re eligible for a Mosaic status match if you hold one of the following status levels with a competing airline:

  • Virgin America®: Elevate® Silver, Elevate® Gold
  • Alaska Airlines®: Mileage Plan™; MVP® Gold or MVP® Gold 75k
  • American Airlines®: AAdvantage Platinum®, AAdvantage Platinum Pro®, AAdvantage Executive Platinum®
  • Delta®: SkyMiles Medallion® Silver, Gold, Platinum or Diamond
  • Southwest Airlines®: Rapid Rewards® A-List Preferred or Companion Pass
  • United®: MileagePlus® Premier® Silver, Gold, Platinum or Premier1K®

To request a status match you simply have to fill out the form on this page, including your name, TrueBlue number, and proof of status with another program, which could include a copy of your statement or current credentials card with a competitor.

Status matches are valid through the end of 2017, and you’ll then automatically be enrolled in a status challenge to maintain your status through 2018.

JetBlue Mosaic Status Challenge

If you don’t have status with a competitor you can still do a status challenge. The challenge is open to any TrueBlue member. Upon registering you’ll have 90 days to earn 3,750 base flight points, which will get you status through the end of 2018.

You earn three base flight miles per dollar spent, meaning you need to spend $1,250 on JetBlue (before taxes & fees) to qualify for the status.

Here’s the link to enroll for the challenge.

Bottom line

This is a generous promotion for anyone who flies JetBlue with any frequency. If you have status with another program you can have your status matched through the end of 2017, and if you spend $1,250 within 90 days you’ll keep your status through the end of 2018.

Even if you don’t have status, being able to earn Mosaic status for almost 18 months for just $1,250 of spend within 90 days is a great value.

Do keep in mind there’s potentially one downside to registering. You don’t earn the 15,000 point bonus if you qualify for Mosaic status through a match or a challenge, so if you’re close to qualifying for Mosaic status without the challenge, you might not want to sign-up for this, since you’d be forgoing 15,000 points.

  1. If you can fly JetBlue routes, this is the best status to have. “No change or cancelation fees on tickets” is the best feature as it makes every ticket essentially a refundable ticket.

  2. “You earn three base flight miles per dollar spent, meaning you need to spend $1,250 on JetBlue (before taxes & fees) to qualify for the status.”
    Does it mean that one flyer could buy a ticket on Jetblue for $1250 today, for a trip with departure date greater than 90 days?

  3. Does that include no change or cancellation fees on award flights too, not just paid flights?

  4. Question, last year I got mosaic through a similar elite status match, I didn’t maintain mosaic for 2017 but I am still platinum on AA. Could I do the status match again given that I did it last yr? If not I assume I could do the challenge right?

  5. Should you choose “challenge” if you are currently Mosaic but looking to qualify for next year?

  6. CJ, the Mint fares earn 3x base points and 3x bonus points. Only the base points count towards the status challenge, so you still have to spend the $1250.

  7. The best perk of Mosaic is that your baggage gets off the plane first so you’re not waiting ages for your bags and you beat the taxi line rush

  8. The last part is infactual. If you meet the challenge qualification by earning 3,750 base points, you get the 15k.

  9. If I’ve already booked and paid for flights during the next 90 days, will those base flight points (once I fly them in the next 90 days, as someone noted above) be counted toward the challenge?

  10. @Tom

    I definitely agree with you. I’ve had to call to cancel in order to cancel flights booked with points, but it’s a non-issue since their dedicated line actually works!
