I was quite surprised that JetBlue didn’t announce some sort of promotion during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday time frame, but was very happy to wake up to a 20% off email this morning! For two days only, for reservations booked by November 30, 2016, you can receive 20% off the base airfare on all flights for travel December 7, 2016 through February 15, 2017. To book a flight with this sale, you must book at jetblue.com/promo and use promotion code CELEBRATE.
Of course, with any JetBlue promo, there are a few exclusions. While domestic and international flights are eligible, your flight must originate in the United States (including Puerto Rico). Additionally, the discount will not work for Sunday travel as well as any date between December 16, 2016 and January 8, 2017. Also, for roundtrip flights, both the outbound and the return must be within the promotional timeframe to receive the discount. So if you are looking to fly early-January and coming back at the end of the month, book two one ways so you at least get the discount on the inbound flight.
Remember, you have 24 hours to cancel a flight after it is booked for a full refund if you want to “book now and figure it out later.” If your plans are flexible, use the JetBlue Fare Finder which will give you the cheapest price for every day of the month.
Already booked a flight and the price went down? Typically JetBlue gives you a credit for the fare difference if you’ve purchased a JetBlue flight within the past 14 days. Unfortunately though, this isn’t a fare sale and instead a promotional sale meaning you need to input a promo code to get the lower fare price. If your fare price has decreased once the promo code has applied, you will not receive the credit voucher for the price difference. With that being said, it is always worth it to tweet/call JetBlue and ask if there is anything they can do as a good will gesture. Now, if you have JetBlue Mosaic status, you can cancel an existing flight for free and apply the funds to a new reservation for the less expensive flight.
Anyone able to take advantage of this sale? If so, enjoy!
