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.
