Book your upcoming JetBlue award flights soon! Because via Point Me to the Plane, you’ll save 25% off award tickets booked by August 4, 2016, for travel between September 7, 2016 and November 16, 2016.
This is a good deal for folks who have a trip with JetBlue planned this fall. I’ll show you why!
Save on JetBlue Award Flights
When you book your JetBlue award ticket by August 4, 2016, for travel between September 7, 2016 and November 16, 2016, you’ll get a 25% discount. When you search for your award ticket, the fare you see will automatically include the discount.
But the promotion is NOT valid for flights on Fridays or Sundays. And there are blackout dates between October 6, 2016, and October 16, 2016.
Note: The discount only applies to the number of points required, NOT taxes and fees.
I found a flight from Buffalo to Boston departing September 21, 2016, and returning September 28, 2016, for ~$134. The same ticket costs 6,000 JetBlue points with this promotion.
That’s a value of ~2.2 cents per point. And JetBlue points are normally worth ~1.4 cents per point. So this is a good deal!
Earn More JetBlue Points
- 5,000 JetBlue points (worth ~$70 in JetBlue flights) each year on your account anniversary
- 6 JetBlue points per $1 you spend on JetBlue purchases
- Free first checked bag for cardholder and up to 3 companions on the same reservation when you use your card to pay for your ticket
The JetBlue Card has a 5,000 JetBlue point sign-up bonus after meeting minimum spending requirements. You do NOT get a free checked bag with this card. You’ll earn 3 JetBlue points per $1 you spend on JetBlue purchases.
Or maybe you took advantage of the recent JetBlue and Virgin America promotion and already have a lot of extra JetBlue points to spend?
Either way, if you were thinking about booking an award ticket with JetBlue this fall, get it soon to save your points!
