JetBlue is offering 4X points on flights booked now through November 13, 2013, for travel through December 31, 2013. Register here prior to booking eligible travel. The 4x point offer is valid only for new bookings of JetBlue flights (one-way or roundtrip) and your TrueBlue number must be entered at time of booking. This offer not valid for previously booked flights or changes to a previously-booked flight. In the event you cancel your reservation, you will not receive any TrueBlue points from that reservation, and any points already awarded will be debited from your TrueBlue account.
TrueBlue members generally earn three (3) points per dollar spent on their individual JetBlue flight plus three (3) bonus points per dollar for flights booked on jetblue.com. The 4x bonus points are awarded on the base TrueBlue point offer only, so instead of 3 points per $1 booking flights, you’d earn 12 points per $1, plus the 3 points per $1 for booking on jeblue.com for a combined total of 15 points per $1.
All 4x points are considered bonus points and do not count towards earning Mosaic status; only the three (3) base points per dollar you earn on your individual JetBlue flight count towards Mosaic. Points will be earned on the base fare of the flight only. The offer does not apply to non-revenue travel (e.g., travel booked with a travel certificate, TrueBlue award flights, etc.); is not valid in connection with other routes, partner or codeshare or interline flights, Getaways vacation packages, cruises, or any other product or service.
While I wish the 4X points counted toward Mosaic status, this is still a decent promotion since you can redeem JetBlue points for about 1-1.3 cents apiece for airfares, so you’re looking at a solid 15% return on spending if purchasing airfares through JetBlue.com.
For those of you that took advantage of the recent JetBlue Double Points promo, that was pretty restrictive, it might be worth seeing if you can cancel and rebook to earn this much more lucrative bonus if it won’t cost you much out-of-pocket, but for those of you who fly JetBlue and have travel coming up that you were going to fly on the airline, this is worth getting in on. With some great bonus categories and an annual fee that’s waived for the first year, the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card has a lot going for it. If you don’t have PRG, now’s as good a time as any to add it to your wallet, as Amex added some great new benefits several months back.
