If you’re looking for a way to make your JetBlue TrueBlue points go further, distance-wise and value-wise, this award discount may be just the ticket.
Through June 19, TrueBlue members will receive a 15 percent rebate on points redeemed for JetBlue award travel completed between now and July 31.
Registration is required.
Deal or No Deal
Yes, the rebate is a modest one. It’s a snooze-you-lose sale, which is another negative — travel planning should never be hurried. And the window for discounted award travel is pretty tight, at just over a month.
Still, anything that increases the value of loyalty points, no matter how little or how temporarily, is a positive for program members. And award travel for 15 percent fewer points definitely beats award travel at the regular price.
