Up To 20% Off Fall JetBlue Tickets

JetBlue frequently offers “flash sales,” whether it’s a discount on revenue or award bookings. They’re definitely one of the more aggressive airlines when it comes to this technique. For example, just last week they offered a 25% discount on award bookings.

Right now they’re offering 20% off revenue tickets booked for travel this fall when using promotion code FALL2014. The promotion is valid for tickets booked through 11:59PM EST on Wednesday, August 27, 2014.

JetBlue-Promo

The basic terms for the promotion are as follows:

  • Valid for travel booked between September 3 and December 8, 2014
  • Travel must be on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Saturdays (Fridays and Sundays are excluded)
  • Roundtrip travel is required
  • Only flights within the United States qualify
  • Blackout dates include October 13, November 20 through December 2, and November 1-8 for travel to/from Newark
  • Not valid for Mint Class travel
  • Enter promo code FALL2014 when you make your booking at http://jetblue.com/promo

When you search using the promotion code, the discount won’t initially be reflected. Instead, once you select the flights you’ll see the discount reflected in the price breakdown.

As I mentioned above, sadly this doesn’t seem to work for travel in Mint Class between New York and Los Angeles.

Bottom line

JetBlue is tough to beat for domestic travel, especially in terms of the inflight experience. The number of promotions they offer both for booking revenue and award tickets makes it quite easy to maximize the value you get out of travel with them. Also keep in mind that if you lock in a ticket now, you can always cancel it without a fee within 24 hours.

The full terms are as follows:

Promo code is subject to limited availability and is good while limited supplies last until 8/27/14 (11:59 PM ET) for 20% off the base fare of a roundtrip JetBlue flight (nonstop or connecting) originating from the United States (including Puerto Rico) to any JetBlue cities within the United States (including Puerto Rico) between 9/3/14 – 12/18/14 (blackout dates 10/13/14 and 11/20-12/2/14 for all plus EWR and 11/1-11/8/14 for EWR only). Flights on Monday through Thursday, and Saturday only. Roundtrip purchase required. Customers purchasing roundtrip travel must select both outbound and return flights within the travel period in order to receive the discount. 7-day advance purchase required. Code (case-sensitive) is valid only for flights purchased on jetblue.com/promo; new bookings only; limit one code per booking. Code cannot be redeemed for Mint seats, and is not valid in connection with JetBlue Getaways, award flights, taxes/fees, partner or code share or interline flights, baggage fees, or any other products or services. Code cannot be combined with other offers, cannot be partially redeemed, has no cash value, is not redeemable for cash, but is transferable. If fight reservation is changed/cancelled, a $100 fee per person will apply (plus any increase in fare for changes), and the promo code will only apply to any modified or new reservation if it is booked by 11:59 PM ET on 8/27/14 is for travel within the eligible travel period, and otherwise satisfies all terms and conditions for this offer. Changes/cancellations after 8/27/14 will result in the promo code discount being forfeited. Cancellations are for JetBlue travel credit only, valid for one year. If reservation is not changed/canceled prior to scheduled departure, all money associated with reservation is forfeited. Other restrictions apply. See http://www.jetblue.com/legal.

  1. Ben–So, hypothetically I have a friend who is a Jetblue Mosaic member and so could he book a roundtrip and then if his travel plans change cancel the return leg and still get the 20% discount on the outbound leg? Because based on my reading of the T&C it seems to indicate a roundtrip ticket has to be BOOKED and not flown.

    I’m not a lawyer but that seems rather advantageous to prevailing in a disagreement with Jetblue on whether my friend should get to keep the 20% discount on the outbound leg. Would love your advice that I can pass onto my friend. Thanks Ben!

  2. @Ben — Will do! First he has to find a $399 jetblue flight to book using 20k of his US Bank Flexperks pts and then cancel to maximize his credit in his Jetblue travel bank. Then he’ll book a roundtrip using the 20% discount and cancel the return leg first online and then, if needed, by phone 🙂 I’ll be happy to share what my friend learns based on this experiment.

  3. @Ben — Good news! My friend is happy to report he successfully booked a roundtrip with the 20% discount and then realized he made a mistake and cancelled the return but got the 20% discount still applied on the outbound leg even though it is now a one way. Obviously my friend told me YMMV but wanted to pass on the promising news.
