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

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.

@mcr:

Blah blah blah.

Reports since the original claim have, at the very least, raised questions about the veracity of the Doctor’s claim.

What???

@ mcr: get your facts straight

Dan- I just made a transfer last week and booked a flight to Fort Lauderdale! Is there any way I can get some of the points back (i.e. I transferred at the normal rate, would AMEX refund any of the points)? Please advise.

Buster

Is this a better deal than waiting for the Amex Avios bonus transfer?

Dan

@NYJay:
Depends on the route you want.

And for all we know the BA bonuses are dead.

if you plan on going to Orlando for Pesach, you may also want to check out Jetblue for some 1 way deals from Newark to orlando at $99 up to march 31. then from Orlando to newark for $99 during chol hamoed and on April 15th.

Azis Papa

Amex charges an excise tax to do the transfer?

A Canadian

@Dan:
how much do they charge for a lap child?

Dan

@Azis Papa:
Yes.

@A Canadian:
There is no charge for domestic lap children.

DG

When I use your link to transfer my AMEX points it says “Feature not available” What does this mean?

Question

Are the points shown already discounted on the jetblue site?

popeye

I just tried cancelling my flight that was booked using this method in MINT class. They tell me that there is a $150 per ticket. Your post says that there is no cancellation fee when mint seats are booked with Trueblue points. Can you please tell me where you got this info from?

Dan

@popeye:
Search for a mint flight with points and click on the “i” button for more details.

popeye

Thanks so much. Mission accomplished.
