Jetblue announced they are having a one-day summer sale, with good deals on some of their routes. You must book today, July 2, and travel is valid from July 9-October 3rd. The blackout out dates are August 29 – September 5, 2012 (which is Labor Day weekend).
Jetblue one-day sale starting from $49
Some of these fares say they are only valid Tuesday and Wednesday, yet when I searched for them, I saw that was not the case and some were available any day of the week. Also, something I want to mention is that since the amount of TrueBlue points required for a free flight is based on the price of the fare, this means that redemption options are also lower. Some routes start at only 5,000 TrueBlue points, which can be transferred in from American Express Membership Rewards. While there are some good prices, some aren’t much cheaper than the legacy airlines so make sure you are getting a good deal by checking a site like Orbitz and comparing costs before you book. Here are two decent fares I found though.
The sale is also valid for one-way tickets; Burbank-Las Vegas for under $40.
Newark-Boston for $59.80 on JetBlue.
Compared to United for $152 for the same time.
