There’s a very good JetBlue sale going on today and tomorrow: The Fly-Somewhere-New Sale. I want to highlight it because flying JetBlue is like flying with bottom tier status.

I have United Silver status, and just buying any JetBlue ticket mimics many of the benefits.

When I fly United, I get one checked bag fee. All JetBlue passengers get one checked bag free.

When I fly United, I get economy plus at check in, which is 34″ of pitch. Regular JetBlue seats have 34″ of pitch! I can’t usually get an aisle or window seat either on United at check in, which is a snap if you book a few weeks out on JetBlue.

When I fly United, I do get priority security and boarding. But JetBlue has an even better benefit for everyone: free DirecTV at every seat!

When I fly United, I earn valuable miles with a 25% bonus for my status. When you fly JetBlue, you get 5 points per dollar spent on the base fare. This is an advantage for United.

From the comparison, it should be clear that flying JetBlue is a pretty great deal for a casual traveler. The deal is made even better when there’s a sale on like now.

The sale page lists each way prices to several destinations from most JetBlue cities. Some of the deals are quite good.

Clicking on a fare gives its requirements. Most require a 14 day advance purchase and Tuesday or Wednesday travel.

Purchase by tomorrow for travel January 22 to February 13 (or beyond based on the route.)

Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That's $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards®.

Just getting started in the world of points and miles? The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for you to start with.

With a bonus of 60,000 points after $4,000 spend in the first 3 months, 5x points on travel booked through the Chase Travel Portal and 3x points on restaurants, streaming services, and online groceries (excluding Target, Walmart, and wholesale clubs), this card truly cannot be beat for getting started!
