A new JetBlue sale is here, though not as good as the most recent ones. Sometimes I wonder if they see Southwest sales or the popularity of them and then throw some fares out there and call it a sale. 🙂 For my cities of interest, there are not any great prices but there are between other city pairs so obviously check out the list. This is always a good time to use JetBlue points as well!

Boston Marathon Blackout Date
Rant: Again, what is with the Boston Marathon blackout date?! We are used to seeing blackout dates for winter break, spring break, Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc, but the Boston Marathon? Many people already booked their tickets before JetBlue even opened up the schedule that far so they would not be losing big money by letting the sale be available to people heading out of the Boston area after the marathon. /rant over. 🙂
So, if you want to take advantage of this sale to get out of Boston after the marathon, you will have to do it the day of the Boston Marathon, April 17. Check for fares to your home city on that day. At least they didn’t blackout people’s arrival dates but since many arrive on Saturday, those prices are already higher.
There are some decent cold to hot destination fares as well as many short-haul distances that are on sale as well. Check the list to see what may be of interest.
The schedule for JetBlue was extended about a week ago so you can book tickets through October 28, 2017. That works nicely if you plan on heading to any of the great October marathons.
Booking with Points
do not forget about the jetblue cards! The Plus card that gives 30,000 points could get you a lot of travel during sales like this. If you do not have points right now, don’t worry as another sale will be here before too long!
Sales like this do tend to give some better point values than the norm so check and see whether it will make more sense to use points or cash. In some cases, you could get over 2 cents per point – use the points!
