No. You need premium card like Chase Sapphire Preferred which charges $95 AF.

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi Dividend (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

Cashback, 1:1 redemption ratio.

 

Sometimes they do discounted gift card where you can use $20 to get a $25 gift card.

If you book through Ultimate Rewards for travel you actually can use your points for flights! Or, what you can do is book a JetBlue flight through their website and use your points for a 1:1 statement credit :smileyhappy:

 

Booking through the Ultimate Rewards Travel is better, because you get 2% cash back when using your Freedom!

I always find better deal from airliners directly. UR Travel always sells more expensive ticket.

Yeah, sometimes it can be that way. When I was looking at airlines for a trip to Austin and a trip to Columbus, OH, they seemed to be on par with UR. However on hotels they are way overpriced. The lowest they had per night was in the 80s or 90s but hotwire could get me a similar hotel in the 40s or 50s.
