You Can Get a 20% Rebate on Redeemed TrueBlue Points By July 25, 2014

JetBlue

Link:   Redeeming JetBlue TrueBlue points

You can get a 20% rebate when you redeem JetBlue points by 11:59 pm Eastern Time on July 25, 2014.  This means that you get 20% of the points used for the flight back ~4 to 6 weeks after the promotion ends on October 31, 2014.

The promotion is valid for JetBlue points redeemed for travel between September 2, 2014 to October 31, 2014.  So this offer might not work for some folks.  But it might be especially helpful for people flying to see family for the Jewish New Year.  Or for those flying after the Labor Day weekend.

JetBlue has a revenue based program like Southwest, so you get more value for your flights when you redeem during sales or rebate offers.  TrueBlue points are usually redeemed for ~1.5 cents.  But through this promotion can get you ~1.8 cents per point.

How Much Would You Save?

For example, if you fly JetBlue from Austin to San Francisco from October 25, 2014, to October 31, 2014 (during the sale period) it will cost 38,100 points + ~$13 in fees.

Pay 38,100 TrueBlue Points Now to Fly From Austin to San Francisco but Get 20% of Your Points Back Later

So you’ll pay the full amount of the award flight in points when you book but get 20% of your points back in your account ~4 to 6 weeks after the promotion ends on October 31, 2014.

In this case you’d get 7,620 of your JetBlue points back (38,100 JetBlue points X 20%).

Bottom Line

You can get a 20% rebate when you redeem JetBlue points by 11:59 pm Eastern Time on July 25, 2014.

You have to travel between September 2, 2014, to October 31, 2014, to get the rebate.

I’m not going to book a flight with this promotion because Emily and I usually fly within the US on our Southwest Companion Pass.  But if you already have JetBlue points, this could be a good deal!
