Now through July 31, 2013, JetBlue is offering up to a 50% bonus on purchased TrueBlue points. It’s a tiered bonus structure, so the more points you buy, the higher bonus you’ll receive. To participate in this offer, you must login into your TrueBlue account, and click on the option of either Buy Points or Gifti Points. The bonus is hardcoded, so there is no need to register, and you’ll see the offer appear automatically when trying to purchase points.
Here’s how it works:
- Buy between 2,000 – 9,500 get 20% bonus points
- Buy between 10,000 – 19,500 to get 30% bonus points
- Buy between 20,000 – 29,500 to get 40% bonus points
- Buy 30,000 to get 50% bonus points
Through this offer if you were to purchase 30,000 points for $886.88, you would be receiving 45,000 points bringing the cost to about 1.97 cents per point, which is not a great deal since you only get about a 1.3 cents per point value when you redeem.
However, if you just need a few extra points to top off your account for an award, then it could be something to consider, but I wouldn’t recommend just buying these points with no specific redemption lined up. These points must be bought in 1,000 increments.
As a reminder, members may purchase a maximum of 60,000 points per calendar year. Through this offer, the maximum you can receive is 45,000 (30,000+15,000 bonus). The points should be posted to your account within 72 hours if not sooner.
If you’re looking for a way to boost your TrueBlue balance, you could also consider applying for the JetBlue Amex, which currently comes with a sign-up bonus of 20,000 TrueBlue points when you spend $1,000 within 3 months and has the $40 annual fee waived the first year.
