If you've ever wanted to try JetBlue Mint, JetBlue is currently having a sale. For example, you can find routes to Boston from LAX or SFO for $399 one-way. Be sure to check the availability in your city to see the prices.
How to Book JetBlue Mint with Points
JetBlue is unique because point redemptions are based on ticket prices, as opposed to distance.
$399 (one-way ticket) value / 29,900 points = 1.4 cents per point
If you are someone who has a stash of JetBlue points on hand, this is the perfect opportunity to use them.
If you don't have JetBlue points, you can also use American Express MR points and transfer them to JetBlue. American Express is running a targeted promotion for a 10%, 20%, 30% or no bonus when you transfer points to JetBlue.
You can view credit card offers by going to the "Credit Card Offers" tab. Find offers for the respective cards in "Travel Rewards Credit Cards." You don't have to use our links, but we're grateful when you do. Thank you for supporting AskSebby!
For example, if you're not targeted for a bonus promotion, you would typically transfer 250 MR points to get 200 JetBlue Points.
- 250 MR = 200 JB
- 37,250 MR = 29,800 JB
- $399 / 37,250 MR = 1.07 CPP
At a 10% bonus, transferring 250 MR points will yield 220 JetBlue points.
- 250 MR = 220 JB
- 33,864 MR = 29,800 JB
- $399 / 33,864 MR = 1.18 CPP
A 20% bonus will yield 240 JetBlue points.
- 250 MR = 240 JB
- 31,042 MR = 29,800 JB
- $399 / 31,042 MR = 1.29 CPP
The best deal is a 30% bonus, which comes out to 1.39 cents per point.
- 250 MR = 260 JB
- 28,654 MR = 29,800 JB
- $399 / 28,654 MR = 1.39 CPP
Overall, I think this is a good deal, especially if you want to experience JetBlue Mint. If you don't have enough points, you can always take a one-way JetBlue Mint flight, as opposed to roundtrip.
