-If you register via the link above and book award tickets by 11/14 for travel completed by 1/14/17 you’ll get a rebate of 15% of your points.
-Offer not valid for previously booked flights or changes to a previously-booked flight.
-Points will be automatically deposited to the TrueBlue account used to book travel.
-In the event you cancel your reservation, or change your reservation so that it no longer complies with the terms for this offer, you will not receive any TrueBlue points back.

If you have a JetBlue Plus World Elite Mastercard you always get free checked bags and a 10% points rebate, but in this case you’ll get a full 25% rebate as both the 10% rebate and the 15% rebate will come off the original points rate paid.

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.

If we have family pooling and one of the family members has the JB plus credit card, will anyone booking from the family pool earn the 25% point rebate?

Thanks
