JetBlue is back with a flash sale across the U.S. and to parts of the Caribbean for just $19 or 400 TrueBlue points one-way. We're seeing flights from Ft. Lauderdale (FLL), New York (JFK) and Washington (DCA) at bargain prices. Departure dates and times are very specific and travel dates are between October 28 – November 19. Keep in mind that all tickets are in JetBlue’s Blue class, which means you won’t get an included checked bag and you’ll have to pay extra to change your ticket unless you have elite status.
If you see a deal you like, don't wait as this flash sale expires at 11:59 PM ET tonight!
This is a good opportunity to use your 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. We value TrueBlue points at 1.3 cents each.
To search, head to JetBlue's deals page and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline.
