Earn 5x points on JetBlue flights this Fall

JetBlue is running another 2-day sale offering not only some discounted fares but also the opportunity to net 5x TrueBlue points for travel between 17 September 2013 and 18 December 2013. Tickets must be purchased by 10 September 2013. They ran a similar promo last week and have apparently decided to repeat it.


The 5x promo means earning up to 18 points/dollar spent (more if you also have Mosaic status) which should translate to roughly 25 cents credit back when you redeem the points for a future flight, though the points values do vary. That’s actually a pretty good deal. Here’s the fine print:

5X POINTS Restrictions: 5x point offer valid only for JetBlue flights (one-way or roundtrip) that are purchased between now and 9/10/13 for travel 9/17/13 – 12/18/13. TrueBlue number must be entered at time of booking. New bookings only. TrueBlue members generally earn three (3) points per dollar spent on their individual JetBlue flight plus three (3) bonus points per dollar for flights booked on jetblue.com. 5x points are awarded on the base TrueBlue point offer only, meaning that Members qualifying for this offer will earn fifteen (15) TrueBlue points per dollar spent on their individual flight. Members can still earn the three (3) bonus points for booking on jetblue.com, for a total of eighteen (18) TrueBlue points per dollar spent on their individual eligible 5x Points flight booked on jetblue.com. Points will be earned on the base fare of the flight only. Points will not be earned on government taxes/fees, travel insurance or other fees or charges (e.g., change/cancel fees, etc.).

There are blackout dates on the sale fares (Thanksgiving, really) but not the promo points. Sadly, the flight I am looking at booking is on 19 December so both not on sale and no bonus points.
