There are many factors to consider when applying for a new travel rewards credit card . While an application may temporarily ding your credit score, a new credit card can provide a wide array of benefits.

There are many different travel rewards credit cards out there today. Some may offer terrific sign-up bonuses but not many benefits to offset the annual fee and entice cardholders to keep the card after the first year. However, others provide intriguing value propositions that can more than cover your out-of-pocket costs. Today I want to take a close look at one such card to demonstrate how much value I got from my first year of cardmembership and why I’ll continue to carry the JetBlue Plus Card in my wallet moving forward.

When Barclaycard first introduced three new JetBlue credit cards back in March 2016, I quickly jumped on the opportunity to make my travels with the carrier even more rewarding. I live in South Florida about halfway between Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, two cities with very large JetBlue operations. The carrier also flies to several cities out of West Palm Beach, and I love the ability to pool points with my wife and daughter. Thanks to this multitude of flight options as well as the very pleasant in-flight experience (free Wi-Fi, unlimited snacks, complimentary DirecTV, etc), I find myself booking with JetBlue more frequently than with just about any other airline.
