Straight to the Point
Last week JetBlue announced a promo that gives new members 5,000 TrueBlue points for creating an account and flying by April 16, 2017. JetBlue just launched its newest Spring promo-earn double base points on all flights through April 30, 2017.
You first need to register for the promo here. Once you’re registered, you need to book the flights by March 23, 2017 and fly before April 30, 2017 to get the double points. Note that if you’ve already booked a flight it won’t be eligible for the promo. Only flights booked after you’re registered will qualify.
Another bonus is that the double points also count towards JetBlue Mosaic status! There are two ways to qualify for JetBlue Mosaic. You can fly 30 segments + earn 12,000 flight points in a year or you can get Mosaic by just earning 15,000 flight points in a year.
JetBlue flights normally earn 3X flight points per $1 spent on airfare. With the promo you’d earn 6X flight points per $1. If you’re looking to get Mosaic this year, now’s a great time to schedule JetBlue flights since you’re getting double points towards status. If you just want to buy status Mosaic outright, it would cost you $2,500 worth of JetBlue flights with this promo (6 points x $2,500=15,000 points for Mosaic status). You can find the full list of Mosaic status perks here.
This is a great offer if you’re a JetBlue flyer. You earn more points and can earn status much easier. I’d say the best use of JetBlue points is booking a flight in JetBlue Mint. You get a lie-flat seat, great food, and an almost enclosed seat at the front of the plane. That being said, I’m still working on requalifying for United status for 2017 so I’m going to have to pass up on this opportunity until I hit my United goals for the year.
How to Pay
- JetBlue Plus Card earns 6X miles per $1 spent on JetBlue purchases.
- Platinum Card from American Express earns 5X Membership Reward points per $1 spent on flights booked directly with an airline or through American Express Travel.
