The community perks for Extra Crunch members just got better with an upgrade to our offer from Brex. Earlier this month we announced that annual Extra Crunch members can get 100,000 Brex Rewards points after signing up for a Brex corporate credit card. Now the offer includes an airline miles transfer program headlined by JetBlue TrueBlue and including six other airline partners: Aeromexico Club Premier, Air France/KLM Flying Blue, Avianca LifeMiles, Cathay Pacific Asia Miles, Qantas Frequent Flyer Program and Singapore KrisFlyer. The miles transfer ratio from Brex Rewards points to JetBlue TrueBlue points is 1:1, and Brex is giving away up to five JetBlue round-trip flights for Brex customers who transfer the most Brex Rewards points to TrueBlue points between 9/24 and 10/24.
Brex gives startup teams higher credit limits than what they would get with any other business credit card option, and it does so without requiring a personal credit check or security deposit during the application. There are some impressive reward multipliers across categories like rideshare, travel and restaurants. It also comes with $50,000 worth of partner offers from AWS, Salesforce and many more.
Full benefits with the Brex for Startups credit card include:
- 100,000 Brex Rewards points upon signup (equal to about $1,000)
- 7x points on ridesharing app charges
- 4x points on travel charges, including Airbnb
- Miles transfer program to seven airlines (including JetBlue, Singapore Airlines, Qantas, Air France, Cathay, Avianca and Aeromexico) and their loyalty programs
- 3x points on restaurant charges
- 2x points on recurring software charges like Salesforce, Slack and GitHub
- 1x points on all other charges
- Discounts on the top services for startups, including Zendesk, Google Ads, SendGrid, AWS, WeWork and more
- Automated receipt-capture and expense matching with the Brex mobile app, or via text and email
- Built-in integrations with NetSuite, QuickBooks and Xero
- And more
In order to qualify for the Brex credit card, companies need at least $100,000 in the bank and must meet Brex’s other qualification requirements. This offer is only available to annual Extra Crunch members in the United States. You can sign up for annual Extra Crunch membership here.

To sweeten the deal, Brex is also offering anyone that signs up a chance to win one of five round-trip JetBlue flights to any JetBlue destination. Winners will have the option to bring a friend and will be able to book JetBlue Mint or JetBlue Economy tickets (as long as the value per ticket does not exceed $2,000). The contest starts today and runs through October 24. Winners are chosen based on the number of Brex Rewards points transferred to JetBlue TrueBlue points through the Brex dashboard during the contest period. Winners will be announced in November.
