JetBlue is offering TrueBlue members a chance to earn some of their points back when they book an award flight. Now through tomorrow, May 10, you’ll get 15% of your redeemed points back when you book an award flight for travel through June 30, 2016.
To take advantage, visit JetBlue’s website and enter your TrueBlue membership information to register. From there, you can book your award ticket in time to earn 15% of your points back upon purchase. This offer is only good for new bookings, and the points will be posted to your TrueBlue account within 4-6 weeks.
According to TPG’s most recent valuations, JetBlue TrueBlue points are worth 1-1.4 cents apiece. So, for example, if you’re looking to book a one-way flight from New York (JFK) to Los Angeles (LAX) on the carrier’s expanding Mint product, which is one of TPG’s favorites, you can expect to redeem around 45,300 TrueBlue points — worth around $453-$634. However, if you book that award ticket before May 10 and get 15% of your points back, you’d get 6,795 points back — worth around $68-$95.
If you’ve been thinking of booking a JetBlue award ticket, now’s the time to do so, as you’re guaranteed to get something in return. If you’ve been looking to increase your stash of TrueBlue points to use for a redemption like this in the future, don’t forget the new JetBlue Plus Card offers a sign-up bonus of 30,000 points after you spend $1,000 in the first 90 days.
