At the moment JetBlue has a 15% off sale. This promotion is valid for bookings through 11:59PM ET tomorrow, Wednesday, December 13, 2017, and has the following restrictions:
- You must use promotion code RECESS
- The 20% off applies only to the base fare, and not taxes and fees
- Valid for travel between January 10 and February 14, 2017, and February 26 an March 14, 2018
- Excludes travel on Fridays and Sundays
- Not valid on previous bookings
The promotion is only valid for flights (and not vacation packages, etc.), and unfortunately flights in JetBlue’s excellent Mint cabin are excluded.
JetBlue has a revenue based frequent flyer program, meaning that the number of points required for a redemption is correlated directly to the cost of a revenue ticket. However, since a promotion code is required to take advantage of this promotion, award flights wouldn’t be discounted. That’s because award prices are based on the published, public costs, and don’t factor in any promotions.
If you’re looking to book a paid ticket on JetBlue, this is a promotion that’s most definitely worth taking advantage of. Unfortunately it doesn’t do much to help those wanting to redeem points, though. The good news is that with some regularity JetBlue offers a discount on award tickets as well, so I’m sure we’ll see one of those promotions soon enough.
