It seems like October is the month of double miles promos, and joining the pack for one-day only promotion is JetBlue, which is offering double TrueBlue for tickets purchased today until 11:59pm in your departure city’s time zone, valid on flights between November 5-December 18 excluding travel on Fridays and Sundays, and with blackout dates from November 22-December 2 (so no Thanksgiving travel, unfortunately).

Screen shot 2013-10-23 at 12.06.06 PMTo score the bonus, your TrueBlue number must be entered at time of booking. This is valid on new bookings only and will not be valid on previously booked flights that you change today. If you change your reservation after today, you won’t receive the double points either.

The double points based only on base points (not any JetBlue Amex or Mosaic bonuses) and are considered bonus points, so they don’t count towards Mosaic status (only the 3 base points per $1 on airfares does). Points are earned on the base fare of the flight only (not taxes or fees) and does not apply to non-revenue travel (awards or those booked using certificates), and will not be earned in connection with other routes, partner, codeshare or interline flights, nor on Getaways vacation packages, cruises, or any other product or service. You must also book with JetBlue or on since fares on Expedia, Hotwire, Orbitz, CheapTickets, Travelocity, Priceline or LowestFare are not eligible.

While I’d never turn down double points, this is a pretty restrictive promo in that you must book today and do it via JetBlue, and that you must travel in November or December with the 10 days around the Thanksgiving holiday blacked out. On the positive side, however, compared to some of the other current double miles promos like Alaska’s and Delta‘s, this one is at least valid on all the airline’s routes, so you’re not stuck flying new promotional routes between certain city pairs.

So while I’d bet that most of us can’t get in on this, if you do have some JetBlue plans coming up and can book today, you might as well earn the double points doing so.
