Very good roundup! I would easily pay at least $250 for this status. I exclusively fly Jetblue on all my transcon flights the last few years because of my mosaic status!

Agreed. If I were selling mine, based on the value I get, I wouldn't sell for less than $500.

Normally I'd agree, but this is (probably) no normal 12 months...

I wouldn't sell for less than 300. Anyone who flies 2 RT with it gets more value than that if flying to the right cities with 2 or 3 PAX.

Doesn't have to be to get well in excess of $250 in value.

Right, but the point is it's no sure thing this year

I feel like we're going in circles here.  I'm saying even in an abnormal year like this year, a single trip, family of four with luggage, EMS seats, and a single same day change, would make up >$250.  Let alone free redeposit, dedicated mosaic line, etc.

COVID free changes are more flexible than Mosaic free changes, hence the depressed value.
The 6/1 nomination deadline also depresses the value, as does the limited 12 month window.

COVID free changes

.... which end May 31.

For the third time, even accounting for all of the negatives you and whYME have outlined, it's still worth well in excess of the $250 being discussed, and certainly far more than $75 being offered.

Been extended 3 times. I'd be surprised if it wasn't extended again.

That being said, clearly it's worth much more than $100.

I'm not convinced that the fact that you could get $250 worth of goods/services with a single flight means it's necessarily worth that now. If I would actually be spending $250+ on extras for every flight then it would be a no-brainer.

Regardless, I'm sure in another few months I'll regret not buying it when I had the chance

Same here.

But because of the current unstable situation (and free changes etc) , I settled on $200 :(

Sounds like a fair price, considering the situation.
Would be great to have more data points on these threads for what prices these actually traded hands for.

If you ask potential buyers, they sold for $75
If you ask potential buyers, they sold for $750
But yah, difficult when no data points. No one knows how much to charge/pay.....

EMS it also of less value to some potential buyers as they have no points in their account to take advantage.
