JetBlue is known for amazing flash sales and great customer service. While this sale doesn’t include $30 transcontinental flights, short, medium and long-haul routes are heavily discounted for fall and winter travel. Round-trip flights can be as low as $66, with one-way fares starting at just $33. Better yet, availability is pretty wide open on many routes and you can cash in some TrueBlue points for terrific value. Be sure to book before the sale ends on September 21 at 12:00am ET. The sale is valid for travel beginning October 1 through January 31.
A great example of this is a one-way flight from New York (JFK) to Bermuda (BDA) — just $59 one-way. You can also redeem 2,300 points + $5.60 in taxes for this flight, while others, such as New York to Boston (BOS) can be booked for just 1,500 points. When you subtract the taxes on the award ticket, ($53.30/2,300 points) = 2.31 cents per mile value; a great value for TrueBlue points which TPG values at between 1 and 1.4 cents each. Most other routes available with the sale can be purchased with points for around 2 cents per mile each, so make sure to check what the fare costs in points before booking.
This is also a fantastic opportunity to take advantage of the $100 Visa Infinite flight discount available with the Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card — in the case of New York (LGA) to Boston (BOS), you’ll pay just $32 for two round-trip tickets!
