My summer travel plans just became a bit more lucrative from a loyalty perspective thanks to a combination of promotions JetBlue has on offer right now.
Triple TrueBlue Points
Register in the next two days and fly any time in June to earn triple TrueBlue points on all trips during the month. The fine print also says this only applies to tickets purchased during this promo period so that’s a small bummer but I can use my Mosaic status to cancel and rebook one that’s the same price still. And I have a second booking yet to be made. I’m going to do pretty well by this promo.
Speaking of Mosaic status and my favorite benefit – free changes – JetBlue is also offering a status match promotion right now to get Mosaic through the end of 2016. During the first 90 days of that challenge if you spend $1,250 on base airfare (i.e. earn 3,750 base points in the program) you get to keep Mosaic through 2017.
I’ve earned Mosaic in 2015 and 2016, both times through a similar challenge. I expect that I’ll make the numbers in the next 90 days to also earn the 2017 version. Also worth noting that qualifying – though the spend, not just the match version – for Mosaic comes with a 15,000 point bonus. With those point worth ~$200-250 on average towards future airfare that should help offset the costs of reaching the tier. Assuming you remember to redeem your points eventually. I’ve got WAY too many TrueBlue points right now and I really should be looking at booking more award trips soon.

Do you think JetBlue is diluting the Mosaic benefits a little with these promotions? Part of me likes them because I think next year I might benefit from a promo like this, on the other hand I think I qualified 3 times over last year on points and flights. Now when I’m boarding flights to Austin or Dallas I’m getting elbowed out of the way by folks, some of whom don’t seem to know how to put their carry-on in the overhead bin, which doesn’t look like a frequent flyer. Like I said, I see it both ways, but right now I’m feeling a little under-valued after spending a lot of quality time flying JetBlue.
Any dilution happening is relatively small IMO. That said, the ability to qualify with essentially one Mint trip does skew the numbers a bit. Mosaic is an entry-level elite tier. The company has just the one right now. If you’re really flying that much there is not a higher reward for such.
I am trying to complete the challenge. Is this promo 2X base points or 3X base points. Thanks.
The promo is 3 extra award points per dollar. And it does NOT count towards status earning.
If you’re not already Mosaic, how do you get to that status to start getting these opportunities?
