I flew with my wife and kids from Cleveland to Boston last Monday and from Boston to Newark last Wednesday. They were booked as 2 one-way tickets.

The Cleveland to Boston flight posted to my account on Sunday and the Boston to Newark flight posted today, along with this little bonus thanks to Family Pooling:

I’ll get around to writing a trip report one of these days 😉 , but suffice it to say that JetBlue Mosaic is amazing and the flights were great. I haven’t flown JetBlue since doing a 13BM for free tickets to Aruba some 4 years ago, but there’s no doubt that they are heads and shoulders above their continually devaluing competition.

Now I just need to apply for the JetBlue Plus World Elite Mastercard to get back 10% of my points every time that I redeem them.

Where did you fly for JetBlue’s Points Match promotion and what will you do with your your windfall?

Virgin Strikes Back At JetBlue, Weakly

The big winner of JetBlue’s recent Points Match promotion was Virgin America. Well, aside from all of us of course.

If I was running TrueBlue I would have limited the promotion to people who already had Virgin America points as of the day the promotion started. But they didn’t and thousands of people transferred points to Virgin America in order to participate in the JetBlue promotion.

JetBlue will expose all of those people to Virgin’s excellent service and extremely valuable points. Of course JetBlue has great service as well and they’re the only airline allowing people to cancel their South Florida trips due to Zika. People reported that JetBlue even allowed them to cancel Orlando trips for free. My brother-in-law was set to fly to Fort Lauderdale on a Points Match mileage run, but was nervous about Zika. JetBlue allowed him to change from Fort Lauderdale to another more expensive destination to complete the mileage run without charging him a dime!

But Virgin America wasn’t about to let this all pass without firing a shot back. They just sent this email (with the subject “Nice move, Blue”) with a 25% code to people that transferred points:

virgin4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are some good deals with the code, such as JFK-LAX for $108 each way. But the code doesn’t work with point redemptions and let’s be honest, that’s what people are looking to use when they’re sitting on a pile of Virgin America points. It also only works for itineraries of 1 or 2 people.

It’s not a bad way for Virgin America to drive some incremental revenue from the Point Match participants, but once they were going through the effort I’d have hoped for something more creative than a 25% off coupon.

Save 25% On JetBlue Award Redemptions! Fly From JFK-Bermuda For 1.8-2K Points, JFK-Los Angeles For 6.3-7K Points!

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Update: JetBlue is now including Mint class in this sale, it was accidentally excluded by JetBlue earlier today. Mint class includes private walled-in suites with 3 course kosher meals available.

The value is lower than coach tickets, but is a great deal for Mint class. For example a Mint class flight from JFK-Los Angeles on 9/13 is $598.10 or 34K points+$5.60. That’s a value of 1.74 cents per point (598.10-5.60/34,000). With an additional 10% rebate you’ll pay 30,600 points after getting back 200 points and the value will be 1.94 cents per point (598.10-5.60/30,600).

Save 25% On JetBlue Coach Award Redemptions

-Book by August 4th
-Fly September 7 – November 16, 2016
-Blackout dates 10/6–10/16/16
-Not valid for travel on Sunday or Friday
-Not valid in Mint class.

This is a great opportunity to use points earned from JetBlue’s incredible 75K promotion! 

If you matched your status from another airline to JetBlue you can even cancel your flights for free.

If you have a JetBlue Plus World Elite Mastercard you always get free checked bags and an additional 10% points rebate.. The card comes with a 30K signup bonus for spending $1,000 in 90 days. It has a $99 annual fee but it also comes with 5,000 bonus points (5,500 after the rebate) every year that pretty much covers the cost of the card. There is a no annual fee JetBlue World Mastercard, but it doesn’t give free bags or a points rebate.

What are JetBlue points worth with this promo? It all depends on the flights you take, but here are 3 examples:
1. JFK-Bermuda on 9/13 is $63.90 or 2K points+$5.60. That’s a value of 2.92 cents per point (63.90-5.60/2,000). With an additional 10% rebate you’ll pay 1,800 points after getting back 200 points and the value will be 3.24 cents per point (63.90-5.60/1,800).

2. JFK-Chicago on 9/13 is $77.10 or 3.6K points+$5.60. That’s a value of 1.99 cents per point (77.10-5.60/3,600). With an additional 10% rebate you’ll pay 3,240 points after getting back 360 points and the value will be 2.2 cents per point (77.10-5.60/3,240).

3. JFK-Los Angeles on 11/9 is $138.10 or 7K points+$5.60 after 25% off. That’s a value of 1.89 cents per point (138.10-5.60/7,000). With an additional 10% rebate you’ll pay 6,300 points after getting back 700 points and the value will be 2.1 cents per point (138.10-5.60/6,300).

JetBlue’s 75K promo is the most exciting mileage promotion for flying that we’ve seen in a long time.

It’s too late to register for it, but there are some great sales if you still need to book a round-trip flight.

The terms of the promotion said that it would take 4-6 weeks until the 75K points post to your account.

However DDF member rogerlittle completed a round-trip JetBlue flight on July 8th and the 75K bonus points have already posted to his account along with 801 points for the flight itself!

Not only an amazing promotion, but they’re even posting a month before they were promised.

Kudos to JetBlue!

Is This The Secret To Get A 60K JetBlue Signup Bonus?

Friday, July 8th, 2016

A friend called me earlier today to let me know that he applied for JetBlue Plus World Elite Mastercard and received 60K bonus points rather than the stated 30K points:

b6a

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I went on DDF to ask if anyone else had a similar experience and lo and behold, someone else applied for the card online and got 60K as well, despite the application saying 30K!

 

After some further digging, a common denominator was that both of them added an additional user to the card. Was that enough to trigger a 60K signup bonus? Or is this just a fluke that happened to 2 DansDeals readers?

The DDF user reports adding the additional user over the phone the day after he activated his primary card.

I’d love to hear about more data points and if other readers have or have not received a 60K signup bonus and whether they added an additional user to their cards.

 

 

JetBlue points are worth about 1.5 cents each, so a 30K signup bonus is worth about $450 of JetBlue flights while a 60K bonus is worth about $900 of JetBlue flights.

-JetBlue Plus cardholders also receive 10% of their points back every time they redeem points, making those signup bonuses even more valuable. 33.3K points is is worth about $500 and 66.6K points is worth about $1,000 of JetBlue flights.

-If you enrolled in JetBlue’s PointMatch you can get 10% back from all the points earned from that promotion as well every time you use those points.

-You can even pool together all the points earned from all passengers in your household.

-The Plus card has a $99 annual fee, but the signup bonus easily takes care of that the first year.

-The Plus card offers 5,000 points upon every card anniversary. With the 10% rebate that’s like getting 5.55K points good for $83.25 of JetBlue flights, making the subsequent effective annual fee less than $16.

-The Plus card offers a free checked bag for the cardholder and up to 3 passengers on the same reservation. That’s a value of up to $160 in waived checked bag fees per round-trip.

-JetBlue points never expire.

-The Plus card offers an annual $100 statement credit when you book a $100+ JetBlue vacation package.

-If you spend $50K in a calendar year on the Plus card then you’ll get JetBlue Mosaic status for the remainder of the calendar year and for the following calendar year.
Mosaic status includes free changes and cancellations on JetBlue tickets for the Mosaic member and for everyone on their itinerary, 2 free checked bags, 15K bonus points for earning Mosaic status every year, free even more speed checkin and security access, early boarding, 3 additional points per dollar spent, free alcoholic beverages onboard, and a dedicated Mosaic 24/7 customer service line.

-The Plus card offers 6 points per dollar on JetBlue purchases. That’s on top of the 3-11 points per dollar that you earn for the flight itself, which makes for a nice rebate on JetBlue flights.

-The Plus card offers 2 points per dollar on restaurants and grocery stores.

-The card offers a 50% rebate for in-flight purchases of cocktails, food, JetBlue movies and other eligible purchases.

-The cards has no foreign transaction fees.

Where Are You Mileage Running On JetBlue?

Should You Buy Or Transfer Starpoints To Join The Most Lucrative JetBlue Promotion Of All Time?

-It’s Time To Mileage Run! Earn Up To 75K Bonus JetBlue Points After Just 1 Round-Trip If You Have Or If You Transfer Points To Virgin America!


It’s no longer possible to transfer Starpoints to join JetBlue’s epic promotion as the deadline to send in your screenshot is tonight.

The promotion is reminiscent of days of yore when the mileage game was still obscure and highly lucrative. I racked tens of millions of miles from promotions like eBay anything points, Wendy’s cups, Google Checkoutdollar coins, Amazon Payments, REDcard, and more. When $125 could earn you 13.5K United miles, plus 6K Hyatt points, plus a night in any Hyatt in the world, and it could be done an unlimited number of times. When BMI awarded unlimited miles for opening accounts that transferred to BA. Or when I earned 8 round-trip tickets to anywhere American flew in the world during their 2004 attack on JetBlue. When I brought my family to Aruba for free thanks to JetBlue’s coupon bonanza. Or when we flew to Vegas for free with a free suite in the Bellagio and free Cirque tickets. Or the free Wynn and Encore suites. Never mind the hundreds and hundreds of credit cards…I could write a book about this stuff, but no doubt it’s gotten leaner in recent years.

Mileage running used to be a sport to earn lots of miles from flying. I earned over 100K AA miles for flying intra-Texas in 2006. It’s a dying sport since the airlines have stopped awarding miles based on flight distance and it’s mostly used to chase elite status.

But mileage running is alive and well for this promotion, it’s simply too good of a deal to pass up. I enrolled myself, my wife, and our 2 kids and booked us a day trip in and out of Boston for $125 each. That will net us more than 300,000 JetBlue points, a pretty sweet deal! I also matched my status to Mosaic and will apply for a JetBlue Plus card so that I’ll get back 10% of the miles used when I redeem points from the promotion.

There’s no ticketing deadline for this promotion and more sales will pop up, you just need to complete travel by 8/31.

But if you already booked tickets, post a comment about where you’re going and what you plan on doing with the bonus points!

Is There Still Time To Buy Starpoints To Join JetBlue’s Epic 75K Promotion?

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Before reading the post below, please read these posts for background information:

Should You Buy Or Transfer Starpoints To Join The Most Lucrative JetBlue Promotion Of All Time?

-It’s Time To Mileage Run! Earn Up To 75K Bonus JetBlue Points After Just 1 Round-Trip If You Have Or If You Transfer Points To Virgin America!


I’ve been flooded with questions from people asking me if there’s still time to participate in the JetBlue promotion if they haven’t started yet.

Now that we have confirmation that the promotion is being fully honored, we’re nearing the end of the road if you still want to get in on the fun. There is still time to buy Starpoints and transfer them to Virgin America by July 4th, but that window of opportunity is closing.

If you have 40,001 Starpoints you would need to transfer them to Virgin America by Sunday to receive them by Monday in order to email JetBlue to enroll in this promotion by the July 4th deadline.

You can transfer Starpoints into anyone’s Virgin America account. If you have enough points you can transfer points to your spouse and children to enroll all of them in this promotion.

If you have at least 10,001 Starpoints you’ll have until Sunday to buy enough Starpoints to transfer 40,0001 points to Virgin America so that it’s in the the account by Monday to be matched by JetBlue.

Once you buy Starpoints you can transfer Starpoints to Virgin America even if they don’t show as available in your SPG balance.

If you don’t have 10,001 Starpoints then you’ll need to buy Starpoints in 2 different Starwood accounts (as there is a 30K annual purchase limit per account) and make transfers from both of those Starwood accounts to Virgin America are at least 24 hours apart from each other. Those Starwood accounts can be in anyone’s name. In this scenario you’ll want to buy those points ASAP to start the first of those 2 transfers from Starwood to Virgin America now, as you’ll need to wait 24 hours before that Virgin America account can receive another Starpoint transfer.

You don’t need a JetBlue Plus card or a Starwood AMEX to participate in this promotion, but having a JetBlue card will make your 75K JetBlue bonus points more valuable as well as provide free checked bags among other benefits, and using a Starwood card to buy Starpoints will net 2 Starpoints per dollar spent.

Is JetBlue Attempting To Retroactively Change Their Promotion Terms?

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Update #3: JetBlue has officially confirmed to me that they will be fully honoring this promotion.


Update #2: I haven’t heard anything back officially from JetBlue, but several DDFers who did receive denial emails and were told in their original phone calls that the promo terms were changing have been able to HUCA and get registered over the phone.

I also called JetBlue several times and the reps all confirmed that the program is still going and that you actually can book 2 one-way tickets and you can book travel before being registered, as seen in writing here. So be sure to take advantage the JetBlue sale ending tonight.

Gary has also reached out to JetBlue for comment but has also not heard back from them. At this point though I’m inclined to chalk up the denial reports to some incorrect rejections on JetBlue’s end and some incorrect submissions from users.

There have also been several reports of registration confirmation after the meeting that JetBlue had earlier this afternoon about the promotion, so it seems like everything should be good to go, aside from some very rogue phone reps.

If you have been denied you should definitely call JetBlue and keep calling back until they are able to get you registered over the phone.

Be sure that you attach a screenshot from a non-mobile device and that it shows your Virgin America point balance twice when you email JetBlue or else your match will be denied.

Note that some people have reported 6 day waits for registration confirmation while others have been confirmed is as little as 30 minutes. Go figure.

There is still time to buy Starpoints and transfer them to Virgin America, see all of the related posts above for more information.

And don’t forget that you have until tonight to match your other airline elite status to JetBlue.

If there was ever a promotion that appears too good to be true, it’s this one. But hopefully it stays alive through Monday as originally promised.


Update #1: There have been several more reports of match approvals and denials, so it’s hard to say what’s going on for sure. JetBlue is reportedly huddling now to determine what exactly to do about this promotion. Clearly they didn’t expect the thousands of applications for hundreds of millions of miles that they have received, though it’s pretty shocking that they didn’t foresee that.

In the meantime, if you have transferred points from Starwood to Virgin America, it would probably be best to call Starwood to have that transfer stopped, as once it completes it can’t be reversed. If you already have Virgin America points and haven’t yet emailed JetBlue for a match you should do that ASAP.

Once again for the umteenth time, this shows that good things come to those who act quickly.

I’ve reached out to JetBlue and will update this post again when more information is available.

It’s also worth pointing out this email received by DDF member bornsub. In it the JetBlue rep tells him that 2 one-ways will qualify (as I surmised on DDF a few days ago) and that any travel booked on or after June 24th will qualify as well. Numerous phone reps have also confirmed that 2 one-ways will work. Of course officially the terms state that a round-trip is required (though JetBlue stated that a multi-city works as well) and that you must book a ticket after receiving registration confirmation for the promotion.


 

Last Friday JetBlue launched a promotion that is easily their most lucrative ever, offering 75,000 points for taking a single JetBlue flight if you have 50,001 Virgin America points.

I pointed out that it can definitely make sense to buy and/or transfer Starpoints to Virgin America to participate in the promotion.

JetBlue has been inundated with emails from people requesting to participate and thousands have already been approved. I was approved soon after I submitted my request on Friday.

-But DDF member rileywiles23 has just reported that he got an email saying that he didn’t qualify, despite his screenshot showing that he had 50,001+ Virgin America miles.

He called JetBlue and was told that they have added a clause that the points must have been earned via Virgin America flights. That clause is not listed on their website.

DDF member davidmal reports that they made an exception for him and enrolled him over the phone, but the rep stated that going forward applications will be denied if the points didn’t come from Virgin America flights.

DDF member sruly also was denied registration via email as “The points balance proof you provided doesn’t meet the requirements of the promotion.”

DDF member lfas25 reports that he was successfully matched 20 minutes ago, so the denials seem to be brand new. Or perhaps some reps are still working under the old terms?

It would be fair if JetBlue published new terms and stated the requests sent after the new terms were published will be denied. But it’s patently unfair to publish one set of terms and then change them without warning.

If you transferred points to Virgin America and have been denied via email and by phone you should file a complaint immeditately with the US DoT and explain exactly what happened. Be sure to explain that you transferred points to Virgin America based on JetBlue’s published terms of the promotion and that the transfer can’t be reversed. Include screenshots of the promotion terms as well as denials from JetBlue.

If you were already approved then I’d assume you are safe. But JetBlue appears to be playing dirty pool here, so who knows…

Should You Buy Or Transfer Starpoints To Join The Most Lucrative JetBlue Promotion Of All Time?

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

-Roundup Of JetBlue Sale Fares From $66 Round-Trip To Earn Up To 75K JetBlue Points

JetBlue is offering their most lucrative promotion of all time with bonus points if you have Virgin America Elevate points and fly on JetBlue:

b63

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So for the cost of a $66 round-trip flight on JetBlue you can earn 75K bonus points, on top of the regular points you’ll earn from the paid flight.

You need to email JetBlue a screenshot of your Virgin America point balance, name, and member number (along with your JetBlue member number) by 7/4 to participate. Be sure to send a screenshot from a non-mobile device and include your Virgin point balance that occurs twice on the screen as shown here:

virgin2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After getting confirmation from JetBlue, you just need to book and fly on any paid roundtrip or multi-city trip on JetBlue by 8/31 to earn 75K bonus JetBlue points as shown in the chart above!

The bonus points will post within 4-6 weeks after the flight.

What are those 75K JetBlue points worth? 

If you have (or will open) a JetBlue Plus World Elite Mastercard then 75K points will be worth $1,200-$1,425 of JetBlue flights. Otherwise those points will be worth $1,125-$1,275 of JetBlue flights.

If you do participate it’s definitely worth signing up for the card for the 30K signup points, 10% rebate whenever you use points, 9-17 points per dollar on JetBlue, free checked luggage, 5,000 bonus points on every card anniversary, $100 cash back annually for spending $100+ on a JetBlue vacation, a 50% rebate for in-flight purchases, and no foreign transaction fees. If you spend $50K annually on the card you’ll also get Mosaic status which includes free changes and cancellations on JetBlue tickets for the Mosaic member and for everyone on their itinerary, 2 free checked bags, 15K bonus points for earning Mosaic status every year, free even more speed checkin and security access, early boarding, 3 additional points per dollar spent, free alcoholic beverages onboard, and a dedicated Mosaic 24/7 customer service line.

JetBlue points never expire. JetBlue also allows families to pool their points together.

What if you don’t have Virgin America points?

You can transfer Starpoints to Virgin America in less than 24 hours at a 20K:25K ratio. Even if you have no Virgin points currently, a transfer of 40,001 Starpoints would give you 50,001 Virgin America Elevate points to qualify for the highest offer.

Points also transfer from Citi or AMEX to Virgin America, but at a paltry 2:1 ratio rather than the 20K:25K ratio that Starwood offers.

Is it worth doing a transfer from Starwood?

Virgin America has a very valuable mileage currency. There are examples in this post and in this post. 50K points will be worth between $1,100-$1,400 of Virgin America flights. Or you can use points on partners like Singapore for a round-trip flight from JFK to Frankfurt for 20K points or Los Angeles to Tokyo for 40K points. There are great values for travel on Hawaiian and Virgin Australia as well.

Virgin points will never expire if you earn or use at least 1 point every 18 months.

If you get $1,200 of flights from those 50K Virgin points that came from 40K Starpoints, that’s a value 3 cents per Starpoint, a very solid deal by itself without the JetBlue promotion. Throw in the JetBlue promotion and it’s even more lucrative as 40K Starpoints plus a $66 JetBlue flight can turn into $1,200 of Virgin flights and $1,300 of JetBlue flights, a value of over 6 cents per Starpoint.

Don’t have Starpoints?

You can earn Starpoints on the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and on the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express.

Starwood normally sells Starpoints for 3.5 cents each, but you can buy Starpoints for 30% off through 7/1.  With this sale they are just 2.45 cents each. Points typically post to your account within an hour and you’ll need to logout and login to see them. Some people have reported that they were able to transfer purchased points to Virgin America even before they showed in their account balance.

If you you have 20,001 Starpoints already you can buy another 20K for $490 with this sale and then transfer them into 50,001 Virgin America points as 20,000 Starpoints converts into 25,000 Virgin America points and 40,000 Starpoints converts into 50,000 Virgin America points.

There is an annual maximum purchase of 30K Starpoints per account, so if you need 40K or 40,001 Starpoints you’ll need to have a friend buy Starpoints as well.

That friend can then transfer points into your Virgin America account. However you can only make 1 transfer to a Virgin America account per 24 hour period, so after transferring 20K (or 20,001+ points) from one Starwood account to Virgin America, you’ll need to wait 24 hours to do the 2nd transfer.

Is it worth it?

A round-trip JetBlue flight can be had for under $100 and even if you need to purchase the full 40K Starpoints for $980 or 40.5K Starpoints for $992 it’s still a great deal as you’ll wind up with points that are good for about $1,200 of Virgin America flights and about $1,300 of JetBlue flights.

2. JFK-Los Angeles on 5/29 is $148.10 or 10K points+$5.60. That’s a value of 1.425 cents per point (148.10-5.60/10,000). With the 15% rebate you’ll pay 8,500 points after getting back back 1,500 points and the value will be 1.68 cents per point (148.10-5.60/8,500). With a 25% rebate you’ll pay 7,500 points after getting back 2,500 points and the value will be 1.9 cents per point (148.10-5.60/7,500).

3. JFK-Fort Lauderdale on 5/31 is $85.10 or 5.3K points+$5.60. That’s a value of 1.5 cents per point (85.10-5.60/5,300). With the 15% rebate you’ll pay 4,505 points after getting back back 795 points and the value will be 1.76 cents per point (85.10-5.60/4,505). With a 25% rebate you’ll pay 3,975 points after getting back 1,325 points and the value will be 2 cents per point (85.10-5.60/3,975).

JetBlue: JFK Or LaGuardia To/From Fort Lauderdale Nonstop For $68 Each Way

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.
Earn 3 points per dollar on airfare with the AMEX Premier Rewards Gold Card or the AMEX Business Gold Rewards Card.

Bookable on Priceline. Tickets purchased from Priceline are refundable until 11:29pm the day after purchase. Please see this post for directions on how to cancel these tickets.

-Also Bookable on Orbitz. Orbitz tickets are refundable until 11pm ET the day after purchase.

-Limited seats are available on each date. Always search one-way for 1 seat and then work your way up to the number of seats you need in order to book as many seats on sale as you can.

This is a bit pricier than some of the American deals to Miami that we’ve seen of late, but it’s available on the weekends and JetBlue provides free WiFi, DirecTV, snacks, and flies into the more convenient Fort Lauderdale airport. Invest in some super-sized carryons (I have one from Costco) and don’t worry about the new $20 baggage fee (strollers and carseats can be checked for free on all airlines and free lap children also come with an additional free diaper bag allowance onboard as well).

Valid JFK/LaGuardia to Fort Lauderdale dates:
October 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 31

Valid Fort Lauderdale to JFK/LaGuardia dates:
October 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31

JetBlue Adds Checked Bag Fee

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Effective for tickets purchased today, JetBlue is adding a checked baggage fee.  If you purchased a ticket before today you will still get a free checked bag.

They now also have 3 tiers of fare types:

jetblue1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you buy the least expensive Blue fare then your first checked bag will cost $20 online or at an airport kiosk, or $25 with a check-in agent.

The Blue Plus fare is the sweet spot if you know you’ll be checking a bag.  It currently adds $14-$15 to the cost of the lowest fare but includes a free bag.

The Blue Flex fare adds about $100 to the cost of a Blue fare, but includes 2 checked bags and free cancellations.

The cost of a 2nd bag is $35 if you don’t buy a Blue Flex fare.

JetBlue has a very mediocre mileage program, but has won over passengers by not nickel and diming for TV, snacks, WiFi, and baggage.  Will this change affect your future travel plans?

And you have to wonder, how long Southwest can continue to offer 2 free bags now that everyone else has crossed over to the dark side?

JetBlue: Cleveland-Boston For $38 Round-Trip!

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Yes, Clevelanders you read that right. JetBlue is finally making its way to C-Town.

JetBlue is joining the low-cost carrier parade that arrived in Cleveland with the United dehubbing and is launching twice daily service from Cleveland to Boston effective 04/30/15.

As an intro rate for tickets purchased today, you can fly between Cleveland and Boston on Tuesday, Wednesdays, and Satudays between 04/30-06/17 for just $19 each way!

Dave Clark, VP of JetBlue network planning said, “We consider this to be our first route in Cleveland. We’ve started with Boston. We certainly have other plans for Cleveland in mind.”

That makes it sound like Fort Lauderdale and JFK may be in the cards, though both of those have tough competition from Cleveland. United recently announced that they’re ceding the Fort Lauderdale route to Frontier and Spirit. And NYC is already served 27 times daily from Northeast Ohio.

Boston is served 4 times daily from Cleveland by United and daily by Southwest from nearby Akron/Canton. It will be interesting to watch if United fights back or raises the white flag as they did last week to Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, and Tampa. I’d guess they pull the route within a year.

Redeem JetBlue Points And Get 20% Back

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Redeem JetBlue Points And Get 20% Back

Redeem JetBlue points today or tomorrow for travel until 01/31/15 and 20% of them will be rebated back to you by 03/15/15.

JetBlue’s currency isn’t very attractive, but 20% back makes it OK.

Some people have a targeted 40% bonus offer for transferring AMEX points to JetBlue and combined with the 20% rebate that will be quite a hot deal.

JetBlue And El Al Announce Codeshare Relationship, Will It Lead To A Mileage Partnership?

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

On November 19th I made several predictions about the American-USAirways merger.

Several have already come true:
-The American OneWorld round-the-world award chart was killed
-USAirways started collecting fuel surcharges on British Airways and has already killed some off-peak awards.
-American and El Al are ending their codeshare and frequent flyer partnership agreement.
-And now JetBlue and El Al will begin a codesharing agreement, as predicted last November as well,

“Beware that El Al may decide to sever its relationship with American if they become a competitor and you may no longer be able to use American miles on El Al. Though if El Al would do that they would lose codeshare access to other US cities that they get from American though they can always set one up with an airline like JetBlue.”

Then last week I wrote,

“I still think a JetBlue partnership may occur, but that will likely be a codeshare-only relationship and not a frequent flyer relationship.”

And that has come true as well. There is now a codesharing agreement in place, so El Al can place their flight number on JetBlue flights and vice versa. That means your itinerary purchased from El Al may have you flying on El Al flight 1500 from JFK to Fort Lauderdale, but it will be on a JetBlue airplane.

Unfortunately and as expected, there was no frequent flyer announcement.

Given that JetBlue and El Al have convoluted and proprietary mileage programs it will probably be very challenging to set up reciprocity even if there is a desire for there to be one.

I think my prediction from last November of American flights from Miami and JFK to Tel Aviv will come to fruition before an El Al-JetBlue frequent flyer partnership occurs. And that’s even with the long wait for that to happen due to the TWA fiasco that left their employees in Israel without a pension.

If we’re really lucky maybe we’ll even see a United nonstop flight from Chicago (or San Francisco?) to Tel Aviv.  More competition is always a good thing. I talked about those flight possibilities in 2012 with Brian Znotins, VP of United’s network strategy. He indicated that such flights could make sense after the launch of the 787-900, the first of which of just coming online now.  United has 26 of those on order which will come online within the next few years. Then again he (and other United execs at the DO) also told me that the Cleveland hub was profitable, something contradicted by his boss (and still being audited by the state of Ohio), so who knows…

JetBlue TrueBlue Stackable Promotions: JFK-Fort Lauderdale Round-Trip For 10K AMEX Points, JFK-Puerto Rico For 11K, JFK-LAX In Mint Suites For 52.4K

Monday, August 18th, 2014

American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.

JetBlue’s TrueBlue is normally one of the least valuable mileage programs around.

But 2 promotions have converged to make for some nice values.

1. Normally you need 1,250 AMEX Membership Rewards points to get 1,000 JetBlue points but until 09/15 you can trade at parity, 1,000 AMEX points transfers into 1,000 JetBlue points.

You can earn AMEX MR points on cards like the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card and The Platinum Card® from American Express.

Point transfers are instant.

2. Additionally you can save 25% on all award bookings made today and tomorrow.
The 25% discount is valid for flights from 09/02-11/20 but excludes flights on Sundays and Fridays.
This is valid everywhere that JetBlue flies.

With both promotion combined a flight that normally would require 30,000 JetBlue points and would thus normally need 37,500 AMEX points would now cost 22,500 JetBlue points or now only 22,500 AMEX Points.

Sample deals, round-trip in coach:
-JFK to Fort Lauderdale, 11/12-11/18, a paid flight is $207.98.
Thanks to both promotions you can use just 10,000 AMEX or JetBlue points plus $11.20 for the same flights, a value of 1.97 cents per point.

-JFK to Chicago, 11/05-11/12, a paid flight is $230.20.
Thanks to both promotions you can use just 11,400 AMEX or JetBlue points plus $11.20 for the same flights, a value of 1.92 cents per point.

-JFK to San Juan, 11/03-11/11, a paid flight is $253.20.
Thanks to both promotions you can use 11,000 AMEX or JetBlue points plus $11.20 for the same flights, a value of 2.2 cents per point.

-JFK to Bermuda, 09/01-09/08, a paid flight is $329.90
Thanks to both promotions you can use 14,600 AMEX or JetBlue points plus $60.90 for the same flights, a value of 1.84 cents per point.

-JFK to San Francisco, 11/04-11/11, a paid flight is $336.20.
Thanks to both promotions you can use 17,200 AMEX or JetBlue points plus $11.20 for the same flights, a value of 1.89 cents per point.

-JFK to Burbank, CA, 11/05-11/11, a paid flight is $317.98.
Thanks to both promotions you can use 16,200 AMEX or JetBlue points plus $11.20 for the same flights, a value of 1.89 cents per point.

-JFK to Nassau, 11/11-11/19, a paid flight is $346.60.
Thanks to both promotions you can use 11,600 AMEX or JetBlue points plus $93.60 for the same flights, a value of 2.18 cents per point.

-JFK to Los Angeles, 11/04-11/10, a paid flight is $404.20.
Thanks to both promotions you can use 21,000 AMEX or JetBlue points plus $11.20 for the same flights, a value of 1.87 cents per point.

-JFK to Liberia, Costa Rica, 11/11-11/18, a paid flight is $477.42.
Thanks to both promotions you can use 22,400 AMEX or JetBlue points plus $41.42 for the same flights, a value of 1.95 cents per point.

Sample deals, round-trip in Mint Suites Class:

JetBlue’s Mint Class operates on flights between JFK-Los Angeles and JFK-San Francisco.
Rows 1, 3, and 5 have a 2-2 seat configuration for a total of 12 lie-flat seats.
Rows 2 and 4 are Mint suites with a 1-1 seat configuration. Those 4 seats per plane are the only seats on intra-North America flights where you can close the doors for privacy.

For the time being JetBlue sells allows people who purchase Mint seats to select Mint Suites when available for no additional cost. When purchasing a flight just fill in your person into to get to the seat selection page to check if seats in row 2 or 4 are available.

Mint seats booked with TrueBlue points get free cancellation/changes, free onboard movies, free enhanced food and beverages, 2 free checked bags, and priority checkin, security, and boarding.

-JFK to Los Angeles, 11/04-11/10, a paid flight is $1,197.98.
Thanks to both promotions you can use 52,400 AMEX or JetBlue points plus $11.20 for the same flights, a value of 2.26 cents per point.

-JFK to San Francisco, 11/04-11/11, a paid flight is $1,197.98.
Thanks to both promotions you can use 52,400 AMEX or JetBlue points plus $11.20 for the same flights, a value of 2.26 cents per point.

JetBlue Status Match And Challenge Info

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Lots of airlines and hotels offer status matches.  I wrote an article about status matching back in 2011 (note that some info there is defnitely outdated) when now defunct BMI gave out free Star Alliance Silver elite status.

JetBlue will now match select other elites to their Mosaic elite status which will last until 12/31/14.

You need to enroll by 04/18/14.

But it’s cooler than that.
-People that aren’t elite can get a 90 day challenge.  Spend and fly on $1,250 worth of JetBlue flights (before tax) within 90 days of the challenge start date and you’ll have Mosaic elite status until 12/31/15.
-They will allow Southwest companion pass holders to match to Mosaic. The Southwest companion pass allows you to bring a companion on all of your flights for free and it can be earned from opening and spending on the Southwest credit card. It can even be earned by transferring Ultimate Rewards points to Hyatt and then from Hyatt to Southwest.  See here for the other statuses that can be matched.
-Elites that match can also keep their status until 12/31/15 by completing the same $1,250 90 day challenge.

Mosaic gets you:
-Free flight changes and cancellations for you and everyone flying with you.
-2 free checked bags for you and everyone flying with you.
-Expedited security line access.
-Early boarding
-Dedicated Customer Service Line

Some bloggers are saying that non-elites get Mosaic elite benefits during the 90 day challenge.  It doesn’t say that anywhere and JetBlue confirmed to me via Twitter that that is incorrect.

There isn’t really a hard rule about whether programs grant benefits during a challenge period. For example United and Hyatt do while Starwood does not.  Delta gives most benefits during the challenge period but does not offer lounge access during the challenge period.  However most other programs only allow other elites to do a challenge or match.  American is an exception in that they allow you to pay for a challenge, though they generally won’t confer benefits until you complete the flying challenge.

JetBlue Now Allowing Family Pooling Of Points; A Roundup Of Other Programs That Do As Well

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

Earlier this year JetBlue improve their TrueBlue program by eliminating the expiration date for points.

Now JetBlue is allowing 2 adults and 5 children to pool their points together to earn awards faster.

Of course the real achilles’ heel of the program is that the points just aren’t worth as much as other point currencies and that they lack aspirational international award redemptions.  You can transfer American Express points to JetBlue but there are several better options than that to get more value out of your points.

But it would be nice if more domestic airlines allowed families to pool their points together.

British Airways Avios allows family pooling but by doing so you disable to ability to redeem your points for anyone outside of your family pool, which makes that a poor option.

JetBlue will allow you to continue to redeem for people outside of your pool, which makes it far more beneficial than the BA program.

The current USAirways promotion running until 10/15 is an excellent way to move over some points.

Other airlines that have household pooling options include ANA, Asiana, Etihad, Emirates, JAL, Korean, Qantas, and Turkish.

Hotels are much more generous in this regard.  Starwoods allow you to transfer points between anyone at the same address for free.  Hyatt allows anyone to transfer your points to anyone in order for them to be able to redeem an award. Marriott lets you transfer points to a spouse in order for them to be able to redeem an award.

And of course Chase allows spouses to transfer points to each other as well.

Jetblue Kills 90% Off Promotion, Offers 25% Off Consolation Prize For Travel From NYC In September And October

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Update: Although JetBlue wrote that that the 25% off is for domestic flights, commenter “kak” notes that it’s currently working for international tickets as well!

————————————————————————————–

The 90% off promotion was supposed to run for 2 more days but Jetblue has killed it off early. It won’t be returning.

From JetBlue:

Dear hot New Yorkers,

Our #HotSeatsNYC promotion turned out to be an offer that was simply too hot to handle, and unfortunately, we’ve had to end it early – our systems just weren’t able to manage the volume of New Yorkers looking to beat the heat. While we sold thousands of seats during the promo, we know there were many of you who weren’t able to take advantage of the offer.

To prove we’re not full of hot air and to make sure everyone lands a hot deal, we’re offering 25% off fall flights from New York’s JFK/LGA/EWR airports. Just book by 7/19 at 4 p.m. EDT for travel 9/3 – 10/31/13 using promo code 2HOT2HANDLE. The promo code is good for all days and all domestic flights (including Puerto Rico), as long as there’s an available seat. Supplies AREN’T limited, so feel free to use the code more than once.

It’s not too big of a loss. As I said earlier today it was great on Tuesday and Wednesday but today’s promotion was just slammed.

Anyway to get 25% off just go to www.jetblue.com/promo and use promo code: 2HOT2HANDLE

-Book by 4pm EDT on Friday, 7/19/2013.
-Valid for 25% off one-way or round-trip base fare for travel departing from New York’s JFK, LGA, or EWR airports.
-You can’t use an area-wide search, you must search for airports only for the code to work.
-Code valid for travel from 9/3/2013 to 10/31/2013.
-Valid for domestic US and Puerto Rico travel only.
-You must select all flights before the discount will be shown.

Here are some sample fares for 09/17-10/01:
-JFK-Washington DC: $102.81
-LGA-West Palm Beach, FL: $153.81
-LGA-Orlando: $165.81
-JFK-Chicago: $170.30 (09/17-10/02)
-JFK-Fort Lauderdale: $198.80
-JFK-S. Francisco: $255.80 (09/16-10/01)
-JFK-Los Angeles: $258.79

Here are some sample fares to the Caribbean for 10/22-10/29:
No passport is needed for travel to Puerto Rico and your cell phone will work just like as in any US city.

-JFK-Aguadilla, Puerto Rico: $228.40

Tips For Day 3 Of Jetblue’s 90% Off Promo

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Judging from my Google Analytics logs, lots of you want to grab cheap Jetblue tickets.  I’ve gotten thank you emails from dozens of people who are all over the country and Caribbean for less than $100 round-trip, enjoy your vacations!

Here’s what you need to know.

The sale will start exactly at noon.  It will be posted here and I will tweet it out right away.

-The promo code and dates for today’s sale won’t be known until noon.  Once they are known I will send out a tweet to my @DansDeals followers.  I also start searching for sample fares to put in the post, if you keep refreshing the past you will see my latest finds.

-Jetblue will hold these sales for the next 2 days as well, though I won’t be covering Saturday’s sale of course.

-If you are really quick you’ll be able to book something before their systems get slammed.  Otherwise expect lots of errors and messages saying that they couldn’t price your selected flights.  This just means their servers are under a lot of stress.  Just start your search again.

-Yesterday their system was very unreliable from 12:05-12:45.  This was probably caused by the sheer number of people trying to get in on the deal.  Once people bailed and stopped searching, the the load on Jetblue’s servers eased up and flights started pricing with the 90% off coupon properly.

-You need to select the departing and returning flights before the 90% discount will appear!

-Flights seem to disappear from the system during that timeframe as well so if you were searching for a flight it wouldn’t show anything.  Those flights reappeared at about 12:45 again so people that stuck it out were rewarded with $60 flights to Florida to $80 flights to the west coast.  Persistence is the key.

-Even if you select a discounted flight you need to be quick.  Lots of people will be chasing the same seats and whoever check out quickest will get them.   Don’t be stuck with an error on the checkout page, move quickly!

-It’s only valid for flights leaving EWR, JFK, and LGA.  However as I showed yesterday you can search for flights going to regions like from New York City area to Los Angeles area, S. Francisco area, or South Florida area.  Note that the area search will include other NYC airports that don’t qualify for the discount.  Also the area search doesn’t always work properly and leaves off some flights so you should also check individual airports.

-I did notice that sometimes the discount wasn’t working properly.  A Newark-Orlando-Newark flight was not giving the discount but using the region search a flight from Newark-Orlando-LaGuardia did give the discount.  Go figure.

-While the Jetblue website said that the coupon was sold out for the day at about 1:45pm, it kept working until about 2:15pm.

-If you want to fly just one-way from NYC you can book a round-trip and just not fly the return.

HOT! $100 Off Any Jetblue Flight! Fly Round-Trip From Just $14 With Tax!!!

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Update #2: DEAD!

Update: This promotion ends tonight! If you still have a code please post it in the comments and help someone else travel for free!

Jetblue sent out emails today to select members with a mystery code worth between $20 and $300.

Now here’s the kicker, the $50 code is generic, so anyone can get $50 off each way, or $100 off a round-trip by booking each way separately by using code: 8W2DQ3S4

If you do have a $75+ code you are not going to use please post it as a comment so that someone will be able to take advantage of it. I can’t personally confirm, but reportedly $75+ codes can also be used multiple times simultaneously via the 2/3/4bm method 😀

-Book by 09/14/12
-Complete travel by 11/07/12.
-Enter code in promo code field exactly as it appears (case sensitive).
-You must select flights in order for discount to be revealed. Once flights are selected, you will see the discount amount displayed in the itinerary subtotal on the right side of the flights page.

Sample itineraries with $100 off (Book each way separately!):
-Burbank, CA-Las Vegas on 11/04-11/06, $14 round-trip with tax.
-Washington/IAD-JFK on 10/21-10/24, $14 round-trip with tax.
-Burlington, VT-JFK on 10/21-10/24, $14 round-trip with tax.
