Through tomorrow, April 26, 2013 you can redeem your JetBlue TrueBlue points for an Award Flight at a 30% off discount. The one caveat is this is only for flights May 2nd through June 26th (excluding May 23-27) and only for travel on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays – so essentially excludes Friday and Sunday travel (the two most popular travel dates). Another limitation is that an award flight cannot be discounted less than 5,000 points (which is the lowest point redemption you can find – so those already low flights won’t count in the deal).
This is actually a pretty good opportunity to redeem your points for a free flight, assuming the award redemption amount is still reasonably priced. While there is no direct formula on how award redemption amounts are priced, the amount does increase as the fare price increases – so there is a direct correlation. Remember, this discount is ONLY on award flights, not paid flights.
In case you are not 100% of your travel plans, reservations made one week or more prior to a flight’s scheduled departure may be canceled without penalty up to 24 hours after the reservation is made.
JetBlue typically has some decent promotions leading into the summer time (at least they did last year), so let’s hope this isn’t the only summer promo we’ll see!
