Brex has just announced that they will be adding JetBlue as a new 1:1 transfer partner, and that’s on top of the impressive list of other transfer partners that cardholders already have access to. With the addition of JetBlue, Brex now has a total of seven transfer partners:
AeroMexico Club Premier.
Air France/KLM Flying Blue.
Cathay Pacific Asia Miles.
JetBlue True Blue.
Qantas Frequent Flyer.
Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer.
To celebrate this new transfer partnership, Brex and JetBlue will be giving Brex customers the chance to win one of five round-trip JetBlue flights to any JetBlue destination. Winners will be able to book Mint or economy tickets for themselves and a companion. The maximum prize value is $2,000, including taxes and fees.
The contest runs from Sept. 24 to Oct. 24, 2019. Winners will be announced in November 2019, “based on the number of Brex Rewards points transferred to JetBlue TrueBlue points through the Brex Rewards dashboard during the contest period.”
Limited-time offer on the Brex credit cards
Additionally, there is a new limited-time offer available for the Brex Card for Startups and the Brex Card for Ecommerce, making now a great time to apply for one, if your business qualifies. These offers will be available until Oct. 31, 2019.

JetBlue serves over 100 destinations across the U.S., the Caribbean and Latin America, with over 1,000 daily flights.
Brex customers who are not part of the Brex Exclusives program will be able to transfer their Brex points at a 1.5:1 ratio to JetBlue.
How to use JetBlue points
Before you decide to transfer your Brex points to JetBlue, it’s a good idea to think about how you’ll use them. Luckily, JetBlue makes things pretty easy. If you already know where you want to travel, you can head to JetBlue’s homepage and run an award search just by clicking the “Use TrueBlue Points” checkbox.
With JetBlue, the number of miles required for a flight is directly tied to the fare price. That means when cash fares are lower, you’ll need fewer points for a flight. That makes using your JetBlue points for JetBlue flights easy because you don’t have to worry about maximizing the value of your points.
JetBlue points can also be redeemed for travel on Hawaiian Airlines and for the air portion of JetBlue vacation packages.
Redeeming points for Hawaiian Airlines flights involves a more traditional zone-based award chart, where the number of miles you’ll pay will depend on where you are departing from and where your destination is. That means you could get significantly more or significantly less value out of your JetBlue points. It’s always a good idea to do the math first.
We value JetBlue points at an average of 1.6 cents each when redeemed for flights, so if you’re getting that value or higher you’re doing great!
It’s great to see Brex continuing to add value to their rewards program. The addition of JetBlue as a transfer partner at an industry-leading 1:1 ratio is a good move and should offer solid additional value to Brex Exclusive cardholders.
