JetBlue offering 20% off award redemption

JetBlue has joined the ranks of airlines offering award redemption sales this fall, offering a limited-time 20% off sale for award travel. The deal requires booking by midnight on September 28, 2011 and there are some additional restrictions as well:

  • Travel between 10/4 – 12/15/2011
  • Travel not discounted on Friday or Sunday
  • Blackout Dates: 11/22, 11/23, 11/26, 11/28/2011

More fine print here.

A quick check of redemption costs shows the sale rates valuing points at 1.70-ish cents each while the same route on a non-discount day has them at 1.35-ish cents, matching the 20% discount advertised. There is no indication that you’re getting a sale rate in the booking process but the pricing works out that way.

Not a bad deal at all, especially given the otherwise generally fixed value of the TrueBlue points. I might actually redeem a few myself…
