Note these sale fares (“Blue fares”) do not include a checked bag.  If you need to check a bag, it will probably be cheaper to buy the Blue Plus fare than pay the $20 cost web check-in or $25 in person at the airport.

The Card to Purchase it With

If you don’t have the JetBlue Plus card which gives you 6 TrueBlue points per dollar spent on JetBlue airfare (and a 10% rebate on TrueBlue point redemptions), then purchase the flight with the Citi Prestige® Card, since it comes with a $250 Air Travel Credit every calendar year that would offset the entire cost of this ticket.

Even if you’ve already used your $250 credit for this year, the card offers 3x on all airfare purchases.

Bottom Line

Book by tonight on and you can spend as little as $29 or 1,200 TrueBlue points on a one way flight. As travel is only good for September 3 & 4, you’ll probably only be able to take advantage of the sale for one direction– but the savings potential is still large.

If you choose to redeem TrueBlue points on this sale and you have the JetBlue Plus card, you’ll also get a 10% rebate, bringing the price down from 1,200 TrueBlue points to 1,080 TrueBlue points for many flight options.
