JetBlue’s TrueBlue program seems to have a lot of short term promotions as of late, though they’ve mostly been on the earnings side as opposed to the redemption side.
Here’s a fun promotion on the redemption side. If you make a TrueBlue booking by tomorrow, Friday, April 26, you can get a 30% discount. The most restrictive terms are as follows:
- Must be for travel May 2 through June 26, 2013, excluding May 23 through May 27
- Not valid for travel on Fridays and Sundays
- Award flights can’t be discounted below 5,000 points
For what it’s worth JetBlue’s TrueBlue program is an American Express Membership Rewards transfer partner, and points transfer at a ratio of 250:200. TrueBlue is a revenue based frequent flyer program and each point gets you about 1.5 cents towards the cost of a ticket. So with a 30% discount you’d be getting nearly two cents per TrueBlue point, or 1.6 cents per American Express Membership Rewards point.
Not a rate at which I’d transfer over a bunch of points, but it’s certainly a good opportunity to top off an account for such a redemption.
