Via The Points Guy, through July 4, 2016, JetBlue will match (or more!) the number of Virgin America points you have.
Send JetBlue a screenshot of your Virgin America points balance and fly 1 round-trip JetBlue flight by August 31, 2016.
This could be a great deal for folks who fly JetBlue and already have Virgin America points. Or have points they can transfer to Virgin America (like Starwood points) and have specific award flights with Virgin America and JetBlue in mind.
Use Your JetBlue Points to Visit Beautiful Costa Rica!
I’ll show you how to register for this promotion. And explain why it might be a good deal for you!
