JetBlue Letting Flyers Buy Up to Mosaic Status for 2018
JetBlue is allowing TruBlue members to purchase their way to 2018 Mosaic status. As a reminder, Mosaic status gets you free flight changes and cancellations, free first and second checked bags, 15,000 bonus TrueBlue points, Even More Speed security, Priority Boarding, an extra 3 points per $1 on flights, a dedicated customer service phone line, and complimentary alcoholic beverages.
There’s two ways to qualify for Mosaic status. You can fly 30 segments and earn 12,000 base flight points, or you can earn 15,000 base points during the calendar year. JetBlue’s promo allows you to purchase between 250-15,000 base points for the 2018 Mosaic qualifying year. The sale is valid through December 31, 2017 and the points should post to your account within 72 hours.
While this may sound like a good way to purchase Mosaic status, prices are steep. The cost per point ranges from $0.18-$0.37, increasing as you purchase more points. If you’re close to qualifying for Mosaic and fly JetBlue regularly, it can make sense to purchase the necessary miles to top off your account. Other than that, it’s just not worth it for the benefits that come with status.
