JetBlue has been around since 2000 and has grown to become a popular airline due to its spacious economy seats, complimentary Wi-Fi, and desirable Mint class cabin (the airline’s business class equivalent).
If you fly JetBlue with any level of frequency you may be wondering how to maximize the JetBlue TrueBlue loyalty program and the benefits it offers. Mosaic is JetBlue’s elite status program and was completely revamped in May 2023, introducing a new way to earn status and offering more personalized perks.
In this post, we’re going to dive into what you need to do to get JetBlue elite status, what the perks are, and if it’s even worth it.
TrueBlue is JetBlue’s loyalty program. Elite status within the TrueBlue program is called Mosaic.
Much like the American Airlines Loyalty Points program, JetBlue now allows you to earn elite status by interacting with the airline in multiple ways, like spending on co-branded credit cards, with no requirement to actually fly.
JetBlue Mosaic elite status is earned through the collection of “tiles.” Tiles are earned by spending on JetBlue flights and select partners as well as JetBlue credit card spending. That means you could theoretically earn JetBlue status without stepping foot on an airplane.
Tiles have nothing to do with redeemable TrueBlue points, and some of the ways you can earn TrueBlue points (like using the JetBlue TrueBlue shopping portal, JetBlue Dining, and transferring points) don’t earn tiles.
You’ll earn 1 tile for every $100 spent on any of the following:
Additionally, you’ll earn 1 tile for every $1,000 spent on any JetBlue credit card:
Once you earn enough tiles for a new Mosaic level, your status will be valid for the remainder of the calendar year in which you earned it and the entire following calendar year. For example, if you earn Mosaic 1 status on October 4, 2023, it would be valid through December 31, 2024.Hot Tip:
Don’t confuse tiles with points. JetBlue TrueBlue points are what you can redeem for flights but they have nothing to do with status. Tiles are the metric used to determine status within the JetBlue Mosaic program.
There are 4 levels of elite status in the revamped JetBlue TrueBlue program. You’ll earn each level by collecting tiles and will be awarded Mosaic Signature Perks each time you advance to a new level.
|Mosaic Status Level||Required Number of Tiles|
|Mosaic 1||50 Tiles|
|Mosaic 2||100 Tiles|
|Mosaic 3||150 Tiles|
|Mosaic 4||250 Tiles|
Each level of JetBlue Mosaic status unlocks a collection of Signature Perks to enjoy. These are in addition to something JetBlue calls “Perks You Pick” (more on these later).
Mosaic members also get access to exclusive offers from JetBlue partners BLADE, Avis, Budget, and Heathrow Express.
After logging in to your account, you can easily see your progress toward Mosaic elite status by clicking on your initials in the upper right-hand corner and then clicking My Dashboard.
Then you’ll be able to see how many tiles you’ve collected along with which perks you’ve chosen.
One of the great things about the new JetBlue TrueBlue Mosaic program is the ability to earn perks on the way to earning elite status — starting at just 10 tiles. These Perks You Pick are designed to help you enhance your experience by allowing you to choose the benefits that matter most.
Once you earn 10 tiles and again once you reach 20, 30, and 40 tiles, you’ll be able to choose a perk from the following options.
These perks can be great, especially if you aren’t a frequent JetBlue flyer. Since you can earn 1 tile for every $1,000 spent on a JetBlue credit card, you could choose one of these perks at just $10,000 in spending. Choosing the 5,000-point bonus would essentially give you an extra half-point per dollar on that $10,000 which is a nice perk if you enjoy redeeming JetBlue TrueBlue points.Hot Tip:
Using a JetBlue credit card is just one way to earn JetBlue TrueBlue points. Don’t forget that American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, and Citi ThankYou Rewards all transfer to JetBlue. The Amex transfer ratio is 1 point to 0.8 JetBlue points, while Chase and Citi are a direct 1:1 transfer.
Each time you earn a new Mosaic status level (at 50, 100, 150, and 250 tiles), you’ll get to select a perk from the following choices:
Perks You Pick are valid from the date they are selected through the end of the following calendar year. If you choose a new perk when you level up, the old perk will expire on the day you choose the new perk.
In 2021, JetBlue and American Airlines entered into an alliance (dubbed the Northeast Alliance, or NEA) that allowed them to essentially share business in New York and Boston. That meant that passengers could benefit from many reciprocal perks.Hot Tip:
In 2023, a federal judge ruled that the Northeast Alliance partnership must end. What this decision means in practice is still unclear and at the time of writing, Jetblue is seeking to exit the NEA partnership. However, the partnership and any reciprocal benefits could change at any time.
Currently, JetBlue Mosaic members can receive these benefits on American Airlines flights:
Of course, if you fly and use a JetBlue credit card enough to earn status naturally, the perks you get will be worth it, but is going after status worth it for a less frequent flyer?
The new TrueBlue Mosaic program should appeal to those that may only fly on JetBlue a few times a year since perks can be earned with as few as 10 tiles. You can earn 10 tiles by spending $1,000 on flights. At that level, a traveler could choose a valuable benefit like Group B early boarding.
You could alternatively earn 10 tiles by spending $10,000 on a JetBlue credit card. Choosing the 5,000-point bonus at that level could essentially mean you earned an extra half-point per dollar spent on that $10,000.
This ability to earn perks starting at just 10 tiles really makes the program worth it for a lot of people, including those who may only fly on JetBlue a few times a year.
JetBlue TrueBlue elite status is called Mosaic and it’s earned through the collection of tiles. These tiles can be earned through flying, spending with select partners, and even spending on JetBlue credit cards.
The ability to earn status through a combination of activities including something as simple as using a JetBlue credit card makes it more achievable for many people. In addition to the perks earned at different levels of status, customers can earn perks on the way to earning status, starting at just 10 tiles. This means that travelers who don’t fly on JetBlue often can earn some perks even if they don’t earn enough tiles for Mosaic status.

JetBlue Mosaic refers to elite status within the JetBlue TrueBlue program. JetBlue Mint is the airline’s most premium cabin, complete with lie-flat seats.
JetBlue Mosaic elite status is based on the number of “tiles” you earn. These are completely separate from redeemable TrueBlue points.
You’ll earn 1 tile for every $100 spent on JetBlue flights, JetBlue Vacations, Paisly by JetBlue, and American Airlines flights. You’ll also earn 1 tile for every $1,000 spent on any JetBlue credit card.
