Over the past year JetBlue has run quite a few “flash” promotions with their TrueBlue program, whereby they’ve either offered bonus points on bookings or discounts on award redemptions.
JetBlue is back with another one of these, and is offering quadruple points for revenue tickets booked by tomorrow, Wednesday, May 7, 2014. The promotion is valid for flights through June 18, 2014, and registration is required prior to booking eligible travel.
With JetBlue you ordinarily earn three points per dollar spent, plus an additional three points per dollar if booked through their website. With a quadruple points promotion you’re looking at 15 TrueBlue points per dollar spent on base fare, on reservations booked through jetblue.com.
Each TrueBlue point is worth roughly 1.5 cents towards the cost of a revenue ticket, which means through this promotion you’re looking at a ~22% return on paid travel. That’s pretty great, assuming you have upcoming travel to book.
The full terms for the promotion are as follows:
*Restrictions: You must register for this 4x points promotion at trueblue.jetblue.com/web/trueblue/spring4x prior to booking eligible travel. 4x point offer valid only for JetBlue flights (one-way or roundtrip) that are purchased between 5/6/14 – 5/7/14 and flown 5/6/14 – 6/18/14. TrueBlue number must be entered at time of booking. New bookings only. TrueBlue members generally earn three (3) points per dollar spent on the base fare of their individual JetBlue flight plus three (3) bonus points per dollar for flights booked on jetblue.com. JetBlue flights are flights operated by JetBlue and purchased under a JetBlue flight number. 4x bonus points are awarded on the base TrueBlue point offer only, meaning that Members qualifying for this offer will earn twelve (12) TrueBlue points per dollar spent on the base fare of their individual flight. Members can still earn the three (3) bonus points for booking on jetblue.com, for a total of fifteen (15) TrueBlue points per dollar spent on their individual eligible 4x points flight booked on jetblue.com. All 4x points are considered bonus points and do not count towards earning Mosaic status; only the three (3) base points per dollar you earn on your individual JetBlue flight count towards Mosaic. Points will be earned on the base fare of the flight only. Points will not be earned on government taxes/fees, travel insurance or other fees or charges (e.g., change/cancel fees, etc.). Offer not valid for previously booked flights or changes to a previously-booked flight. In the event you cancel your reservation, you will not receive any TrueBlue points from that reservation, and any points already awarded will be debited from your TrueBlue account. In the event you change your reservation so that it no longer complies with all the terms of this offer, you will not receive any 4x points, and any 4x points already awarded will be debited from your TrueBlue account. Offer does not apply to non-revenue travel (e.g., travel booked with a travel certificate, TrueBlue award flights, etc.); is not valid in connection partner or codeshare or interline flights, Getaways vacation packages, cruises, or any other product or service; may not be combined with other special offers; is not redeemable for cash; and has no cash value. TrueBlue account must be in good standing. All deadlines based on Eastern Standard Time. Please allow 4-6 weeks after the promotion period ends for points to be posted to your TrueBlue account. Additional restrictions apply. See TrueBlue Terms and Conditions for details.
