JetBlue has frequent award sales & promotions, so if you don’t want to miss out on the next one subscribe to our newsletter and we’ll deliver these sales (and other travel deals) straight to your inbox. Occasionally, there are time-sensitive discount fares and deals that expire before our daily newsletter is delivered. But if you’re following us on Facebook and Twitter you’ll be able to snag those offers before they disappear.
With their free WiFi, extra legroom, and unlimited snacks, JetBlue is the go-to domestic airline for a growing number of rabid fans. And with this sale, you can find discounted flights to useful places like Orlando, the Bahamas, Fort Lauderdale, Boston, and New York. And there are lots of cheap transcontinental flights too!
To get in on these deals, you must book by tomorrow December 12, 2018, at the earlier of 11:59 pm Eastern Time or local time.
Whenever there is a JetBlue sale it is a great time to book your flights with points because the cost of an award ticket is tied to the cash price of the flight. So a cheaper flight means you’ll need fewer points to book your seat. And with the right credit card points, you can even book JetBlue flights for free and earn frequent flyer miles at the same time!

The price of JetBlue awards flights is tied to the cash price of the ticket. So cheaper fares mean you can book flights with fewer points. The cheapest one-way flight costs only 2,200 JetBlue points + $5.60 in fees!
You can search for your flight on Google Flights and book it directly on JetBlue’s website. And you’ll have 24 hours to cancel a reservation if the flight is at least 7 days away. So, you can take advantage of these cheap fares and finalize plans later.
Don’t forget though, JetBlue just increased their baggage fees to $30 for the first checked bag. But folks with the Barclays JetBlue Plus Card 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. Plus they’ll get 10% back on award flights!
However, Barclays credit cards can be a bit tougher to get approved for, but Chase Ultimate Rewards points now transfer to JetBlue at a 1:1 ratio. So you could earn boatloads of Chase Ultimate Rewards points with a card like the Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card or Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card and transfer them over to JetBlue to book your flights.
Also, if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve® card, your Chase Ultimate Rewards points are worth 1.5 cents each toward flights booked through the Chase Travel Portal. If you go this route, you might end up using more points for the flight. But it could still work out in your favor because you’ll earn JetBlue points for your ticket and the flight will count toward elite status.
For example, I saw a flight from Nashville to Boston you could book for 900 fewer points if you first transferred your Chase Ultimate Rewards points to JetBlue and booked through their site. But if you booked your flight through JetBlue you’d still pay the fee (~$6) on your award seat, you would miss out on earning a few hundred JetBlue points for the flight, and the flight wouldn’t count toward earning elite status.
It’s not much of a difference either way, but if you’re trying to qualify for JetBlue’s elite status (especially on flight segments) then booking through the Chase Travel Portal makes even more sense.
Let us know if you end up booking any of these cheap fares!
