JetBlue is offering 25% off TrueBlue award redemptions when you book today or tomorrow (August 18th and 19th) for an award flight that takes places between September 2 – November 20, 2014. This is not valid for award redemptions on Fridays and Sundays.
This timing stacks perfectly with the current Membership Rewards transfer bonus to JetBlue that also offers a 25% bonus on top of the regular transfer rate. The normal transfer rate was 200 TrueBlue points for every 250 Membership Reward points transferred, but right now it is at a 1:1 ratio. That bonus transfer runs through September 15th.
Examples of 25% Discount:
I searched for flights from Houston – New York’s JFK and found a flight on September 4th that was selling for 6,900 points one-way. The cash price was $137 which means you are getting about 1.9 cents in value per Membership Reward point, which is good.
If you are itching to try the fancy Mint lie-flat seats between LAX and JFK, I saw those for as low as 26,200 points, which is the same as getting 2.2 cents per Membership Reward points, which is very good. The cash price for that ticket was $599. If I lived in one of those cities and needed to cross the country I would try it out for that points price.
Stack Discounts and Bonuses:
If you want in on this 25% off award flights booked today and tomorrow but don’t have enough TrueBlue points in your account, you can transfer points from Membership Rewards 1:1 to top off to the level you need. I have heard the points should transfer instantly. Though note I have never transferred into JetBlue myself so can’t speak from personal experience there.
25% off Awards Offer Details:
- Book between now and August 19, 2014
- Fly September 2 – November 20, 2014
- Fly Mon. – Thur. and Sat. (not valid for flights on Fri. or Sun.)
