Deal Alert: JetBlue Flights Starting at $44 During 2-Day Sale
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
JetBlue, no stranger to flash-sales, is offering fares starting at $44 one-way for the next two days. JetBlue's "The More Chillax, Less Cha-Ching Sale" ends tomorrow, Oct. 31, 2018, at 11:59pm ET. This sale is surprisingly flexible and features a rather broad range of dates from mid-November to early next February. Fares across JetBlue's entire route network are discounted with sale fares beginning at the $44 price-point and topping off at $289 one-way.
All fares booked through this promotion are part of JetBlue's "Blue Fare" class. The JetBlue Blue Fare does not include a checked-bag and will require travelers to pay for any changes made to itineraries. Nonetheless, travelers will still earn 3 to 6 TrueBlue points per dollar spent. Since these fares are available on JetBlue.com, it's recommended that you book through JetBlue's official website if you are looking to maximize TrueBlue points earned, as you will earn 6 points per dollar spent.
JetBlue is also offering discounts on the airline's travel packages, which include round-trip air travel and two to three-night accommodations. These packages start at $109 per person.
