JetBlue is becoming more practical by the day.

Earlier this week we learned that JetBlue is now a transfer partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards (some of the easiest points to earn!).  Then we published a JetBlue 20% off award sale yesterday.

Now, JetBlue has made it way easier to share points with other JetBlue members.

Previously, JetBlue allowed families of up to 2 adults and 5 children (under age 21) to combine their JetBlue points in a “Family Pooling” account for free.  But they’ve tweaked this benefit, allowing you to share your points with ANYONE.

JetBlue Has Perhaps THE Best Seats of All Domestic Airlines.  More Legroom in Coach, and Lie-Flat Seats in Their Famous Mint Class!

Family Pooling is now called Points Pooling.  You can add between 2 and 7 JetBlue members to the account, and you’ll all contribute 100% of your points to the shared pot.  There will be one “pool leader” (must be over 21), who can give select members in the group the ability to redeem points.

That might sound a little worrisome, but each member can exit the pool at any time and take their points with them.

Note:   Barclaycard JetBlue Plus cardholders will get a 10% rebate when they redeem points for an award flight.  So if anyone in your group does NOT have the card, the JetBlue Plus cardholder can book the flight, and receive 10% back.

Points pooling is a very handy feature that helps folks use every point in their account.  Oftentimes you’ll have just a few points left after booking an award flight.  But with points pooling you can pool those points with your friends to reach a usable balance faster.  I wish others, like American Airlines and United Airlines offered a free service like that!

Also, JetBlue is revamping its online portal.  As a consequence, the JetBlue “badges” are temporarily unavailable.  JetBlue says they’ll “be back in the coming months”, presumably with improvements.

Remember, if you want more JetBlue points, you can sign-up for a JetBlue credit card, or a card earning points you can transfer to JetBlue, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card and Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card.
