Save 20% Or More On JetBlue Award Tickets!

JetBlue is offering 20% off award tickets with the following rules:

  • Book an award flight by August 29, 2018
  • Fly September 17–November 6, 2018 (Discount not available for travel on October 8)
  • Monday–Thursday & Saturday travel only (not valid for fights on Friday and Sunday)
  • When you search for an eligible award flight, the fare that you see will automatically include the discount.

If you have a JetBlue Plus consumer or business card you’ll get a 10% rebate when redeeming JetBlue points. If you have both you’ll get a 20% rebate. That will stack on top of the 20% discount for a 30% or 40% discount!

You can transfer points to JetBlue from:

  • Chase Ultimate Rewards at a 1K:1K ratio.
  • AMEX points normally transfer to JetBlue at a 1K:800 ratio, However though until 10/1 there is a 25% bonus which makes it a 1K:1K ratio. Unfortunately AMEX charges a fee to transfer points to US airlines which adds 60 cents for every 1,000 points transferred with a maximum fee of $99 per transaction.
  • Citi ThankYou points at a 1K:800 ratio.
  • Marriott points at a 60K:12.5K ratio.

I’m Mosiac. I had a bunch of flights booked for Sukkos. I just cancelled a bunch of them and rebooked them at the cheaper price. Thanks Dan!

“the fare that you see will automatically include the discount”. I have the Barclays Jet Blue Plus Card, and used one of your examples above. I just don’t see the discount from 2,700 to 2,430 points? Maybe the card is not properly linked to my account?

10% or 20% stacked on top of a discount of 20% constitutes a total net discount of 28% or 36% respectively (not 30%/40%).
Just sayin’

I am waiting for a Jet Blue winter sale. Yeshiva Week this year falls out during the MLK break so prices to destinations will be pricey.
