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).
