A little while ago, I wrote a post about a new promo from JetBlue for a 15% rebate on points used for awards. If you ever wanted to try out JetBlue’s very popular, well-liked Mint class, you can do it with this promo from only 15,000 points!
How to Fly JetBlue Mint From 15K Points – Amex or JetBlue
JetBlue has slowly been expanding their Mint class throughout the network. They just added Boston and JFK to Las Vegas and already service other West Coast cities as well as some Caribbean destinations.
While you can book flights between JFK and/or Boston and the West Coast for as little as $549 one way (35K points with this promo), the real gem is booking to those Caribbean destinations. I have written many times before about those prices that are as low as $260 for a one way ticket – which is the same price as economy on those flights! That is a true steal!
But, when you match it to this award promo of a 15% rebate, that makes it an even better deal! Here are some dates and airports to check if you want to try out JetBlue Mint for cheap. Make sure you register with the promo before you book your flight!
Check with Google Flights (using this link to get started) to check for dates. The airports you want to fly from for this cost are JFK or BOS and select as your destination UVF (St. Lucia), BGI (Bridgetown, Barbados), AUA (Aruba). All of those destination are serviced by airplanes with JetBlue Mint onboard.
Some of the cheapest dates include:
- November 11 (yes, take off now!)
- December 30
- December 31
- January 1
- January 3
For the return, you can select a different airline or find JetBlue Mint dates from around $330.
If you want to take off to the Caribbean for a little winter vacation and to do so in the fantastic JetBlue Mint class for cheap, take advantage of this now!
Amex or JetBlue
In the title, I mentioned using Amex as well. For the month of November, you can transfer Amex Membership Reward points to JetBlue TrueBlue at a 1:1 trade, up 25% in transfer ratio from the normal amount. That means that if you have 15K Amex points, you can book a JetBlue Mint class flight for over 4 hours! Not bad at all!
