Update: Good news for some! If you have bought a round-trip for this promo you only need to use the outbound portion, you can throw away the return and still get the free systemwide ticket!
I’ll soon be doing my first “mileage run” from Pittsburgh-JFK since my AA/Dallas mileage run masterpiece (insanity, if you prefer…)
Deal Status: DEAD!

Book travel with your Jetblue Business Amex to save 5%, get double Trueblue points, and make your trueblue points never expire!
The Amex 3-5% savings is rebated back to you on your statement.
Who’s up for a mileage run?!?
Fly from PIT-JFK, or anywhere else for that matter, and you’ll fly free to any Jetblue city!
The cheapest ticket that I could find was from PIT-JFK for $39+ Each way ($98 including all taxes)
Here is Jetblue’s interactive route map, which can show you all non-stop and connecting options.
This unreal offer is in response to the still low traffic numbers for Jetblue in Pittsburgh, where people have some sort of strange love exclusively reserved for USeless Airways.
This offer was alerted to me by 2 Pittsburghers from a Pittsburgh-Post Gazette article.
That article just says that you get a free ticket by booking on Jetblue.com-it neglects to mention that you NEED TO REGISTER FIRST, or even how to register!
(Insert Pittsburgh newspaper joke here…)
-Register and book a roundtrip ticket by 06/30/07 (11:59pm MT)
Travel must be completed by 11/15/07.
-Travel must originate in Pittsburgh.
-After travel is completed (just buying the ticket is not enough!) you will receive 100 Trueblue points, which is automatically converted into 2 one-way systemwide vouchers.
-Vouchers expire 12 months from when they are converted from points into vouchers
-You must sign up for a Trueblue account to register.
-Limit one bonus per Trueblue account.
-Offer does not apply to previously booked travel.
-The free ticket does not have to include Pittsburgh.
I noticed another slight inaccuracy in the article which says,
“Travelers who book flights through www.jetblue.com will receive 100 TrueBlue points at the conclusion of their travel, which can be redeemed for a free trip anywhere JetBlue flies. JetBlue serves 54 cities with up to 575 daily flights. The TrueBlue points will expire in one year from the date of issuance.”
Actually the 100 points that you get after flying automatically becomes 2 one-way vouchers, and those vouchers expire in 12 months.
Major hat tip to Marty C. and Yisroel C.
