To get in on the deal, you must register, book, and fly by April 16, 2017. Only new JetBlue frequent flyer accounts are eligible.
JetBlue points are worth ~1.4 cents each, so 5,000 JetBlue points are worth ~$70 in JetBlue airfare (5,000 JetBlue points x 1.4 cents per point). That’s a sweet bonus!
I’ll show you how to register and make the most of this promotion!

If you’re thinking about trying JetBlue and have a paid trip coming up, you might consider this deal. Or if you live near one of the top 6 cities for JetBlue flights!
And your paid flight doesn’t have to be expensive. JetBlue frequently runs fare sales and last-minute flash sales with one-way flights as low as $20. If you can find a cheap ticket that fits with your travel plans, this deal is a no-brainer!
Million Mile Secrets team member Scott is a loyal JetBlue flyer because he loves the free in-flight Wi-Fi, entertainment, and fancy snacks. And team member Keith had a terrific experience flying JetBlue Mint (Business) Class on his round-the-world honeymoon.
Remember, JetBlue allows family pooling. So you can combine JetBlue points with other members of your household for free!
More Ways to Earn JetBlue Points
Link: Barclaycard JetBlue Card
Link: Barclaycard JetBlue Plus
With the no-annual-fee Barclaycard JetBlue card, you’ll earn 5,000 JetBlue points after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first 90 days of opening your account. That’s not a very good bonus, especially considering their latest promotion gets you the same number of points!
But the JetBlue Plus Card or JetBlue Business Card come with 30,000 JetBlue points (worth ~$420 in JetBlue flights) after meeting the same minimum spending requirement. Both cards have an annual fee of $99.
And folks with the JetBlue Plus Card or JetBlue Business Card from Barclaycard get a free first checked bag for themselves and up to 3 companions on the same reservation when they use their card to pay for their ticket. So these are the better cards to consider if you’ll fly JetBlue often.
Here’s my review of the Barclaycard JetBlue cards.
Other ways to earn JetBlue points:
- Flying JetBlue (you’ll earn points based on the ticket price)
- Shopping at Amazon (earn 3 JetBlue points per $1)
- Flying partner airlines such as Singapore Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, and Emirates (you’ll earn points based on distance flown)
- Travel partners such as Marriott, Rocketmiles, and Avis
- JetBlue online shopping portal
- Enrolling in the JetBlue dining program
- Various bonuses, such as rewards for completing a number of segments
If you’re a new JetBlue customer, you can earn 5,000 JetBlue points when you sign-up for their frequent flyer program, then book and fly one paid flight by April 16, 2017.
And your paid flight doesn’t have to be expensive, because JetBlue often runs very cheap sale deals, with one-way flights starting at $20. If you live near one of these cities, you’ll likely have an easier time finding an inexpensive flight.
This is nice deal if you’ve got plans to try JetBlue anyway. 5,000 JetBlue points are worth ~$70 in JetBlue airfare, and there are lots of other ways to earn JetBlue points!
