Deal Alert: JetBlue Flash Sale Offers Flights From $43 One-Way
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.
Looking for some cheap fares and a way to spend those JetBlue TrueBlue points? You're in luck — JetBlue has just announced their most recent flash sale. The Big Winter Sale is offering fares from just $43 on one-way domestic and international flights. Discounts are available from Jan. 2 to Jan. 4 at 11:59 PM ET or local time. Travel dates range from mid-January through mid-April for Tuesday and Wednesday flights, however there are blackout dates on Feb. 19 and 20. Fares don't include checked baggage.
To search, head to JetBlue's sale page and filter the list by your departure city.
This is also a good opportunity to use JetBlue TrueBlue points since award redemptions are tied to the cost of the ticket. You can transfer points from Citi ThankYou, Amex Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards to JetBlue at a 1:1 ratio.
