    JetBlue's TrueBlue program is offering up to a 50% bonus on the purchase of points through October 18, 2014. The bonus applies if you purchase anywhere between 5,000 and 30,000 points. JetBlue members can't purchase more than 60,000 points per calendar year. The cost per purchased TrueBlue point varies based on how many you buy, though if you max out this promotion you can purchase a total of 45,000 points (30,000 points, plus the 50% bonus) for $886.88. That's a cost of ~1.97 cents per point. I do always find it hilarious when airlines with revenue based award redemptions sell points. JetBlue points can typically be redeemed for ~1.4 cents each, so purchasing them for ~1.97 cents per point simply doesn't make sense. If you're redeeming for Mint Class, you'll sometimes get up to ~1.7 cents per point of value. But that's still nowhere near two cents per point.
