Last month, JetBlue announced an unbelievable promotion where you had the opportunity to earn up to 75,000 JetBlue points. This was part of the Virgin America point match promo where the number of points you earn depend on the number of Virgin America point you have. I was able to register my entire family (fyi – registration has ended) and since everyone had at least 50,001 points in their Virgin America account we are all eligible to earn 75,000 JetBlue points after we complete one JetBlue trip by August 31. One of the best promotions of the year in my opinion.
Mr. Deals travels a fair bit for work and it just happened that he needed to take a flight from Boston to JFK a few weeks after the promotion was announced.He also got lucky that this was a work paid trip! While he typically prefers the Acela, I suggested (or forced!) him to fly to earn the 75,000 points. He flew last Tuesday and on Saturday his 75,000 points posted to his account! Although the terms of the promotion suggest that points could take weeks to appear, in my experience, it takes four days to post!
For myself and the rest of my family members, we booked a mileage run to earn the 75,000 points. The cheapest flight I found out of Boston was a $90 same day roundtrip to Newark. Another post to come to detail out how I went about finding this mileage run ticket.
For those of you who were able to take advantage of this generous promotion, enjoy! And if you registered but have no needed trips, I suggest finding the cheapest same day roundtrip flight possible. Remember, 75,000 points is worth approx $1,100 on JetBlue flights!
