Two amazing JetBlue promotions are stackable today and tomorrow that allow you to fly JetBlue Mint Class, the best Business Class Suite in the United States for only 26,250 points Membership Rewards.
- What are the two stackable promotions?
- How good of a deal is this?
- How can you ensure that you get an enclosed suite (not all Mint seats are)?
Membership Rewards Transfer Bonus
Through September 15, you can transfer Membership Rewards to JetBlue TrueBlue points at a 1:1 rate instantly in increments of 250. This is a 25% transfer bonus. The normal rate is 250 Membership Rewards to 200 TrueBlue points.
25% Discount on Awards
Today and tomorrow, you can get 25% off the normal points price of JetBlue awards.
Here are the rules:
- Book between now and August 19, 2014
- Fly September 2 – November 20, 2014
- Fly Mon. – Thur. and Sat. (not valid for flights on Fri. or Sun.)
- When you search for an eligible Award Flight, the fare that you see will automatically include the discount. Fares will not be discounted below 5,000 points.
Booking the Awards
JetBlue’s frequent flyer program is revenue-based. You can use points on any flight, and the number you need correlates to the price of the flight.
JetBlue has an incredible $599 price point on one way Mint Class fares on many of its flights.
Any flight that costs $599 in Mint Class can be booked for 26,200 points + $5.60 after the 25% discount.
That means for 26,250 Membership Rewards (must transfer in 250 point increments) and $5.60, you can book Mint Class.
That’s a fantastic deal since American and United charge 25,000 miles + $5.60 for their Business Classes, which are not fully enclosed suites, at the capacity-controlled Saver price. The Mint Class price of 26,250 Membership Rewards is far more widely available.
Even on the discounted flights, you have the opportunity to select the enclosed suites in rows 2 and 4 at no additional cost.
Rows 1, 3, and 5 feature fully flat beds, but they are not enclosed.
For now JetBlue Mint Class flies between New York-JFK and Los Angeles. Starting October 26, it will also fly between New York-JFK and San Francisco.
If you don’t have Membership Rewards, you can always use Arrival miles for a Mint ticket. The Barclaycard Arrival PlusTM World Elite MasterCard® comes with with 40,000 bonus miles after spending $3k in the first 90 days.
You can redeem Arrival miles for a statement credit to offset the price of the ticket. For 59,900 miles, you can get a $599 Mint seat, plus you’d get 5,990 Arrival miles back and earn over 3,000 TrueBlue points on the flight.
