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.

More Negative Changes Coming to Citi Prestige Card

I recently wrote about the changes to the Citi Prestige’s sign-up bonus and minimum spending requirement.  And the news that the card will no longer offer Admirals Club access.

Now via View From the Wing, there are more negative changes beginning July 23, 2017!  

Citi ThankYou points won’t be worth as much when you redeem for flights through their portal, the 4th hotel night free perk will work differently, and there will be no more free rounds of golf.
