JetBlue is offering a 50% TrueBlue points bonus if you buy points before August 18. You need to buy at least 3000 JetBlue TrueBlue points in order to qualify for the 50% bonus. You can buy up to 30,000 TrueBlue points.
If you purchase JetBlue TrueBlue points before the end of July 16 you will receive bonus miles. The number of bonus points you will earn depends on the quantity of JetBlue TrueBlue points you purchase.
Here are some examples of how many bonus miles you can earn by buying TrueBlue points. The more JetBlue points you buy the lower the per point cost:
- Purchase 10,000 TrueBlue points - receive 15,000 total points for $298
- Purchase 20,000 TrueBlue points - receive 30,000 total points for $550
- Purchase 30,000 TrueBlue points - receive 45,000 total points for $825
Typically there are better ways to earn airline miles or points to earn free travel than to purchase miles from the airlines. Even when airlines offer specials like this JetBlue sale, it usually is not that good of a deal. In this case if you purchase 30,000 JetBlue points and receive 15,000 bonus points, you will pay $825 for 45,000 TrueBlue points. At 1.83 cents per point it is not a very good deal.
There are certainly better and less expensive ways to earn enough JetBlue points to earn free travel other than to purchase the points, even with a 50% bonus. Barclays offers the JetBlue Plus Card that gives a bonus of 30,000 JetBlue TrueBlue points. Here are the details:
