Southwest Versus JetBlue for Flights to the Caribbean & Mexico

Many folks love to book award flights on Southwest and JetBlue to get to the Caribbean & Mexico.  Both airlines have no blackout dates and award flight prices are based on the cash cost of the flight, so when tickets go on sale, award flights are cheaper, too!.

Plus, both airlines have a great reputation for friendly service.

And it’s easy to earn points on both airlines with great credit card offers.  For example, you can earn a sign-up bonus of 50,000 Southwest points on the Chase Southwest Premier and Chase Southwest Plus after meeting minimum spending requirements.  Southwest is also a Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer partner.

Or earn 30,000 JetBlue points with the JetBlue Plus Card after completing minimum spending.
