If you’re a regular JetBlue True Blue flyer, get ready to start dancing in the streets. I just got an email from JetBlue announcing that they’re lowering their redemption minimum for True Blue flights from 5,000 points all the way down to 3,500. That’s a 30% reduction!
Taxes and fees are $5.60 each way and most flights cost well over 3,500 points, but if you’ve got a short haul coming up you may be in luck. In a very brief survey of the JetBlue booking engine, I found that Boston to Nantucket (should you choose to fly instead of driving the 100 miles) is a great example of a flight that will only cost you 3,500 points now.
Rejoice, my Blue-loving friends. Your time is finally now.
(apologies if this info was already out there — the email just came through to me!)
