Existing Wheels Up members can put more funds down under current terms until the end of May
Wheels Up is making the second significant update to its jet card membership program in six months. But, once again, it will allow existing members to put down more funds and new members to join under current terms until the new rules and pricing go into effect on June 1, 2022.
Wheels Up has been selling its core membership via Costco for years. The offering is getting more attention after The Washington Post recently highlighted it. Is it a good deal?
Hint: It depends on if you choose to fund a Wheels Up deposit account
Since 2016 Wheels Up has been selling memberships in its pay-as-you-go jet card memberships via Costco on a seasonal basis. It’s not alone when it comes to other high-end products and services. You can buy diamonds and luxury cruises at the discount retailer.

Wheels Up becomes the first major jet card provider to offer four guaranteed availability jet cabin categories and a turboprop program on a national basis
What a difference a year makes. At this time last year, rumors were swirling. Wheels Up was expanding beyond its core King Air 350i and Citation Excel fleet with an off-fleet light jet program.
The new programs, effective January 2nd, will offer dynamic trip pricing with capped hourly rates and guaranteed availability nationwide. They will run across five cabin categories, from its King Air 350i fleet to light, midsize, super-midsize, and large jets.
