Through October 16, 2013, JetBlue is offering a bonus when purchasing TruBlue points. For every purchase of 5,000 TrueBlue points or more, you’ll receive a 50% bonus. While I thoroughly enjoy a promotion, this is really only valuable for those looking to top off an award. Since JetBlue has a sorta fixed redemption program, purchasing points with the hope to redeem for less isn’t possible like is it with some other airlines (Delta, US Airways, American Airlines, United, etc.). But if you are looking to use your existing points to redeem for a free flight and are shy some points, this could be worthwhile.

You can purchase points in 500 point increments (but remember, you must need 5,000 points to get the bonus) and the maximum number of points you can purchase through this promotion is 30,000 points.

You can purchase points here.

  • Sean said,

    I only spent a few minutes on JetBlue’s website, but buying points from JetBlue–even with this promotion–makes no sense to me. For example, buying 5,000pts gets me an extra 2,500 for a total cost of $177. It takes 6900pts to fly to vegas from Long Beach OR $104. So, I can pay $104 for a one way ticket to Vegas or $177 for a one-way ticket to Vegas through this promotion. What am I missing?
