If you’ve got a stash of JetBlue TrueBlue points to burn and can travel this June, JetBlue is offering an automatic 20% discount on select award flights. However, you’ll need to act quickly and book by the end of day today, May 16.

This limited-time offer can provide some significant savings on award flights — that is, if you’re able to book soon. Here are the details!

Get a 20% Discount on Select Award Flights

First off, to take advantage of this sale, you need to book by 12 a.m. EST on Tuesday, May 16, 2023. You’ll be able to travel through June 21, so this promotion gives you roughly a month to fly.

To take advantage of this sale, simply visit JetBlue’s website and search for your flights. The base price you see in points will already reflect the 20% discount, so there’s nothing additional you need to do to get the discounted price.

Unfortunately, you cannot use your points to fly in Mint or on transatlantic flights as part of this sale, which is really where the value would come in. Instead, only economy class flights are available in JetBlue’s mostly domestic route network — though there are some local international flights, too.

Example Flight

This June, you could book an award flight from New York (JFK) to Raleigh-Durham (RDU) starting at just 5,600 miles and $5.60 in taxes and fees. It’s a Blue fare (read: not Blue Basic), so you’ll get access to seat selection, a personal item, and a carry-on bag.

The same flight in cash costs $114, so you’re looking at nearly 2 cents per value. This is certainly a great deal considering we value JetBlue TrueBlue points at just 1.3 cents apiece.

Hot Tip:

Don’t have any JetBlue TrueBlue points? Remember that you can transfer your Amex Membership Rewards (1:0.8 ratio) or Chase Ultimate Rewards points (1:1 ratio) to JetBlue.

Final Thoughts

This sale is a fantastic way to kick off the summer with some nicely reduced flight prices when using your balance of JetBlue points. Unfortunately, the sale only lasts for a brief period of time, and you must fly by Wednesday, June 21.

However, if you’re flexible enough to make this timing work, the savings can be significant for you.
