The benefit is the JetBlue Plus is a keeper card if you fly JetBlue often. JetBlue points are tied to the price, as well as the type of seat option. Meaning if you fly Mint, the points will be worth less (1 CPP), and if you fly economy, it'll be worth more (1.9 CPP). 

JetBlue Redemption Rebate

To make the card even better, JetBlue is currently running a rebate sale where you can get a 15% rebate, on top of the normal 10% rebate. Get 15% of your points back when you book an award flight.

The fine print:

If you're someone who can take advantage of the 15% Redemption Rebate promotion, then the 60,000 sign-up bonus is really 75,000 points, which equates to $1,125 in value. 

If you can't take advantage of the 15% Redemption Rebate promotion, then you're getting $990 in value for $1,000 in minimum spend with the regular 10% rebate.
