Title: Jetblue Pointsmatch (potential for 75000 jetblue points)
Post by: 12HRS on June 24, 2016, 01:05:16 PM
https://trueblue.jetblue.com/web/trueblue/pointmatch

In theory you should be able to transfer the points from SPG-Virgin (pretty good value as is) and then match

so 40001 spg = 50001 virgin and 75k jetblue with a paid flight. the RT needed doesn't seem to have a cost minimum associated with it

ETA: you need 50001 virgin so transfer 40001 SPG

I'm guessing if they pull back on it due to everyone transferring from spg etc, its better to get in sooner rather than later. And the transfer value as is from SPG to virgin america is not the worst thing if it doesn't work out.

I don't see this on FT yet

I see $44 each way Long Beach to Sacramento out here on west coast.  Intriguing.

Side note:
I've already heard of someone photoshoping the screenshot of their Virgin American balance "showing" 50,001+ points.
Oddly enough, I guess that would work since JB & VA aren't affiliated..

So as someone who has never flown virgin america before I now just transferred 50k pts to my newly established Elevate account. I think JetBlue needs to rethink this promotion   ;)

So JB is going to see a bunch of account screen shots with 51,000 points, 0 credits, 0 segments & Red Elevate.
They'll figure it out but it's within the rules! :)

Post by: TAVI on June 24, 2016, 05:11:31 PM
i just find it hard to believe that they dont put a stop to this. seems too good to be true. and with JB, the points are straight revenue that they will be losing, it will cost them a fortune.

the problem is that if i do this for the entire fam and JB decides to play hardball, i get stuck with a ton of elevate points that i dont need.

decisions, decisions

I guess 15k +$480 RT ORD-LHR on VS Y is quite good - I was not aware of that.

Though VS only do that route in the summer. Not sure if VX would get me on a DL flight from ORD to connect to a VS in JFK?

Also, any data on what VX infant policy is?

In theory you should be able to transfer the points from SPG-Virgin (pretty good value as is) and then match

so 40001 spg = 50001 virgin and 75k jetblue with a paid flight. the RT needed doesn't seem to have a cost minimum associated with it

ETA: you need 50001 virgin so transfer 40001 SPG
Is this VX or VS?

Can be done at once.  Do 40,001 though.

They can be worth close.
You get a worse redemption rate on mint class. $1500 is a real exaggeration.
Its ok to say $1000 in value, I'm ok with a free thousand

You're technically getting 9 cpp with the $90 seat upgrades for 1k, but it'd be ridiculous to say that is worth almost $7000 based on that. $1000 seems like the standard redemption value.

You can also buy Starpoints for 30% off currently. Normally they cost 3.5 cents each, but with this sale they are just 2.45 cents each. If you you have 20,001 Starpoints already you can buy another 20K for $490 with this sale and then transfer them into 50,001 Virgin America points.

You mean 10,001 usable Virgin points PLUS 30,000 JetBlue points from your 10k spg. This is actually the best value, getting 3 JetBlue points per spg point, as opposed to less than 2 for all of us (40k to 75k)

Just (another) data point:
I had to transfer some MR to VA, because I didn't have enough SPG.
The good news is that the MR transfer immediately.
The bad news, besides the poor exchange rate (2MR-->1VA) is that there is also an excise tax fee that AX charges for  MR transfers to domestic airlines.
I had transferred MR to B9 earlier this year and don't recall such a tax; I'm sure others have posted about it elsewhere but I'm too tired now to look for it.
AX charged 1,680 MR (which I could have paid as $8.40 if I had preferred) for the transfer of 14,000 MR.  I think the t and c said the max excise tax is $99, presumably per transaction.

Now I have to wait for my 43,001 SPG to transfer to VA. (Sadly, I was ~2,000 SPG short of 40,000, so I could only get 5K bonus on the first 20,000, not the second 5k bonus.)

I did buy. I didn't even think of calling and asking. Oy. kicking myself.
This is for DW. She only had about 8,000 SPG. I bought 30,000 SPG. T and C say that you can only buy or receive as gift total of 30,000 SPG per calendar year.
I could have transferred the remaining few thousand from my account to hers, but in my experience, that transfer takes several days, sometimes as long as a week, so it would likely miss the JetBlue promo deadline.
I couldn't think of another way to get ~2000 SPG points into her account, so I had to round out the 50,001 with MR's.
Lesson learned: always ask here first.

We have someone here who says he had 8k SPG in his account purchased 30k, was short 2k, luckily he got it from them with asking, he would have an option of paying 6k MR and earn 2k SPG which would produce another 5k VX points, anything bad?
That's fine, but your tone is always accusatory and the details are rarely spelled out.
Why is 330 SPG for 1000 MR not in the DDMS post?...

I don't mind critical feedback, I just ask that things are kept respectful.

There's not an agenda just because I didn't think through such a scenario to write about on DDMS. AMEX to SPG is a rather obscure use AMEX of points.

You can find "friends" that will transfer from their spg account to your virgin account. Researched this
myself today...
And if he had friends like that, then he wouldn't have bought the 30K, so it's a moot point.

Agreed. I wasnt posting to make zow feel bad, was really posting more for others that are reading this and may be looking for ways to get the needed points. If you dont actually have points in your account the cheapest way is to find "friends" that will transfer for you rather than buying from spg/transferring from amex/citi.

If your impatient, simply call Jetblue, ask to speak to Trueblue and tell them you have a flight to book so can they please register you right away?
It worked three times for me today, got emails while on the phone.

Here's an important tip that i confirmed with two different reps:

Two one ways will work!
(i.e. JFK-Fll   and then LAS-LAX)

While the fine print isn't displayed in the email, they seem to have it on their backend.

Feel free to confirm for yourselves. (I had them add a little note to our trueblue accounts confirming that)

Good luck all!

a bit contradictory...... online says specifically   Then book and fly one round-trip Jet-blue flight by 08/31/16.,reps could promise you whatever points but when it comes for you to get it will prob be hard to get it if beating around the bush,is the points going to be added manually then maybe ok (assuming so since you have to register by email , or is it going to be automatically added by there system for whoever flew a rt ..?

sorry, their terms are somewhat confusing, it's unclear if you can only receive 20,000 as a gift or if that number is actually 30,000 and if they're talking about someone buying you points or transferring them.

JetBlue does not allow you to make an account for someone younger than, I think, 16.
So  in order to make an account for my daughter, I had to make a child's account from my own profile. After a few minutes I logged into her account and copied her Trueblue number.
   I then took a snapshot of her Elavate and sent it to match just like i did With DW and myself.

I then called to expedite.

Every Elavte account needs 50k plus.

We have to fly together because - as of now - a 18 month old can't fly alone ;)

But  theoretically yes, every person registered for the promotion can fly by him or herself.

I know everyone is treating this like a no brainer but I'm still trying to figure out if I should bother. We basically only ever fly NYC- PBI or that area. I would otherwise sell my SPG. Trying to figure out if the value of the jetblue points - the flight I would take as part of this > value of SPG points. Not even sure what I would do with the Elevate points. Help, anyone?

The way I look at it - even if jet blue + virgin points are just 1 cent apiece, that's a value of $1,250. 40K SPG at 1.5 is $600, add in a flight for $100-$150 - you still come away with $500 profit.

Just purchase 1,000 points.  You can transfer immediately after purchase. Or ask SPG for 100 and purchase 500.  It's not so expensive.

I still have not figured out if this is worth it for me.
My main interest is flying ORD - LHR and ORD- NYC. 50000 VX points seems like a lot with no amazing use for me. I don't particularly like flying JB from here to NY - they only have a couple flights a day - AA has every hour.
I don't really have time to travel just for kicks = mileage run. I may have reason to go NY next week but not sure...

I see that your arrival into SFO and your subsequent departure is only about 45 minutes apart. How does it work with security? Do you need to go through security again before getting on your return flight or can you just go straight to the gate for the flight back to LGB? Also, what happens if your incoming flight is delayed and you miss the return? Will Jetblue make you pay the difference in fees in order to get on the next available flight? I'm interested because I am considering booking flights in a similar fashion.

Took 3 days to get confirmation.

I was told that it could be two one-way tickets.

Realistically, if both tickets were checked in online do we really think that not actually flying is going to be noted?

I suppose a test case could be run and e-mail afterwards and ask to confirm the points will post in 4-6 weeks and see if they confirm it based on their records.... I don't particularly WANT to spend 4 hours doing this if it's avoidable... though I will. (I also have a wife with a one month old who wouldn't really be able/want to do it so I'd be 2x wasting by not doing it)

My wife is nursing. She won't want to fly. As the 1 month old doesn't pay for the ticket I doubt it would work. But my 3 year old it might work for.

Is there a minimum age to open a SPG account or Elevate Account? There would still be time for me to transfer the miles for my son if I was able to open up the accounts (the 3 year old...)

How certain of this are you out of curiosity -- that the one way would be voided if I checked in online but didn't board?

Cool, who did you email to get that?
And it seems that any flight booked after June 24 would work, not specifically after the date you were registered.

Not sure the June 24th bit but I haven't booked flights anyway so it doesn't matter. I'm wondering if doing 2 one ways and checking in online but not flying would work (they could be spaced 2 weeks apart)

The email was from dearjetblue@jetblue.com after I asked....

FYI - could do it for both kids... the one hitch would be if I could transfer SPG points to a family member... and if SPG let's kids or babies open accounts.... I don't think JB or Virgin has a problem with it.

I just got notified by pointsmatch that my screenshot doesn't qualify. I'm overseas so I don't have access to a desktop, and the tablet and mobile sites aren't able to get a single screenshot of first and last names, points balance and account number all in a single screen. Instead, I sent 2 screenshots-- one of first name, account number and balance, the second screenshot first and last names and account number, but no balance. The account number is on both screens. I won't be able to get a desktop screenshot until 7/3 evening, which is really close to promo end. I've read people getting rejected initially and then approved after resending the same screenshot. Should I just resend the screenshots I have or wait until 7/3 evening to send a proper screenshot?

they told me on the phone they would honor the transfer and expedited mine!
but future people will NOT be approved because of the way they transferred the points in and NOT earned – (don’t know how she knows that?)
but she said they will honor mine as as a courtesy
she said other applications coming in are going to be denied!!!

Probably just matching to miles earned through travel (or more accurately, screenshots that don't show 50,001 miles deposited in the 5 most recent transactions on the bottom). Or maybe they just need to see some actual flight activity on the bottom of the screenshot?

Except they won't know if you transferred in points and had 5 more recent transactions so the points transferred in don't appear in the screenshot.

So then how will they know how you obtained the points in the first place? I had points earned though flights years ago so I have no status credit. Maybe they're looking at the "member since" date?

I'm hoping that all request be honored, as I already invested 80,000 SPG points into this.

However, the T&Cs do state that "Offer does not apply to non-revenue travel". Now, that can be interpreted to mean that the R/T Jetblue flight must be a revenue flight, but it can also be read to say that the Virgin points must be earned through revenue flights.

Finger's crossed!

I just got notified by pointsmatch that my screenshot doesn't qualify. I'm overseas so I don't have access to a desktop, and the tablet and mobile sites aren't able to get a single screenshot of first and last names, points balance and account number all in a single screen. Instead, I sent 2 screenshots-- one of first name, account number and balance, the second screenshot first and last names and account number, but no balance. The account number is on both screens. I won't be able to get a desktop screenshot until 7/3 evening, which is really close to promo end. I've read people getting rejected initially and then approved after resending the same screenshot. Should I just resend the screenshots I have or wait until 7/3 evening to send a proper screenshot?
download a desktop browser. Should work.

I disagree.

Does not apply to non rev travel would mean that the points were earned through non rev travel, aka points travel. And earning points on points travel doesn't exist.

Send a reply asking for the name of the representative behind the denial. Tell them it would be helpful for the DoT, BBB, and CFPB complaints you responsibly plan on filing, in leu of the fact that you have archived terms and conditions not mentioning a word about any flight earnings requirements.

I hear that, and it's a good point. They might just say that they were imprecise with their language, but that their intent should be understood. Regardless, this is not going to be resolved in litigation over the verbiage, but rather I think in the court of public opinion.

I really don't see anything besides a bunch of questions in the comments that seem to say the phone rep. was wrong and that I could go online and transfer from SPG (mine) to my son's -- they said not only did his account have to be open for 30 days but he had to be 15 years old...

This is a PR nightmare for any airline, and especially for JB (who try to market themselves as a generous, no fine print airline), who launched this whole promotion to try to compete with VX (who are known as a friendly airline). This can backfire big time, and they're well aware of that.

Someone should start a trending hashtag complaining about their non compliance with their stated terms.

But that can go both ways. On the one hand, the loss is smaller with fewer people, but so is the collateral damage if the deal is no honored. If they renege on this deal, they will have many thousands (if not more) angry travelers on their hands.

The Rep I spoke with spent the entire day fielding expedite requests from people but was not able to honor any of them the only one she was able to approve was someone who was rejected already she transferred him to the points match department and they had him resend and approve on the spot.

She said the entire points match department is in a meeting right now that started about an hour ago and will probably last another hour so no matches are being done right now.

I just posted this on the comments on the story on Dansdeals.com:

My screenshot didn’t have flight segments (or history of points earning) listed. After logging into VirginAmerica.com if you click my account it will show your informaiton (first name, dob, address, etc) but will not show point history. Your full name and point balance will still be on the top right of the screen. This way there is no way for them to know you didn’t earn the points through flights. (Although if you have 50,001 points I assume they can guess!)

On the one hand, I feel a little bad for them. All they were trying to do is have a fun promo and win over some customers. But on the other hand, how in the world could they not have seen this coming? How could the situation which is happening right now not have occurred to anyone in the entire company who was involved with this promo? Maybe these companies should have a point-expert as a consultant to think of these loopholes before publishing any promos (not that this loophole requires an expert to discover).

They realized how hard it would be for people to fly by 8/31, and didn't want to do that to them. Instead, they would give me 1 million miles without ever taking a single flight. All I had to do was send them $250 via GreenDot, which is the newest currency of the up and coming airlines. I immediately sent it, and the miles should be in my account by the end of the day.

They are not exactly giving away $1,200.00. Their actual losses result only from: (i) fliers who would have bought a ticket and will now use their miles instead, (ii) revenue customers who were unable to buy a seat because it was taken by a miles ticket, and (iii) the additional fuel burnt as a result of the revenue passengers and their articles.

My rep. said the same thing. He didn't want to transfer me to that department bec. he claimed they were in a meeting about this whole thing, but promised a manager call back because I'm Mosaic. Will hope for the best.
Funniest thing was that the Rep. had no idea how to justify the denial for the promotion per the T&C.

You are correct, practically speaking, but as a publicly traded company, they should recognize this in a GAAP-compliant manner. According to this article Jetblue uses the incremental cost method http://greenandgold.uaa.alaska.edu/images/weekly/20120516-Accounting-for-Airline-FFP.pdf

Quote
The Incremental Cost Method recognizes a liability for the marginal cost of providing air transportation to eligible award passengers (i.e. the cost of taxes, fuel, food, etc. to fly one additional passenger on a seat that otherwise would have been empty—generally a nominal amount).

Did my spg transfer yesterday 21.5k to end up with 30k vx balance. Sent the email today at 2 after points posted earlier this morning. Hope it goes. Did for my dad 3 hrs ago 40k spg transfer so he's in a worse position.

I have a feeling they will change the terms of the promo and disallow future approvals. But I also feel if there is enough of a public outrage to dot twitter fb personal email etc.. to jb they might honor in the end. Anyone else agree?

Correct I have no problem with Dan quoting on anything from here on DDMS but for someone to copy my comment verbatim and to post it in my name is wrong.

I see that your arrival into SFO and your subsequent departure is only about 45 minutes apart. How does it work with security? Do you need to go through security again before getting on your return flight or can you just go straight to the gate for the flight back to LGB? Also, what happens if your incoming flight is delayed and you miss the return? Will Jetblue make you pay the difference in fees in order to get on the next available flight? I'm interested because I am considering booking flights in a similar fashion.

I booked a similar flight. I assumed I'll be returning in the same plane. Can't I just stay near the gate when I exit and then reboard once the plane is ready?

One request got confirmed right away and one I didn't get an answer for.
Both accounts transferred from same spg, sent in screenshot minutes apart...

"I’d note that some have been denied because they embedded the screenshot in the email, rather than including it as an attachment.

Data points:  I submitted my points match request on Tuesday (6/28), still haven't heard back.  I transferred 40k SPG over (though I already had 250 points in my Elevate account from a previous promotion).  Called in last night, was told I would have to wait because they just had too many requests and were slowly working through them, nothing more. 

Friend of mine submitted his request yesterday (6/29) midday ET and he got his confirmation email back today.  Also, I should mention that he has Gold status with Elevate (through a status match, not flights), and transferred 40,001 SPG to VX, no other activity.

Hope this helps.

FYI - rep I spoke with said they received over 4000 emails. (My guess is that at least half are from DDers...)

DDMS.
Thanks for all the efforts you put into clarifying this deal.

DDMS links to here (http://i.dansdeals.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/30161712/jetblue.png) which reads "These flights needed to be purchase after June 24, 2016 to qualify. This is the date the promotion was launched and anything booked prior to that date will not qualify."

I think they can easily claim that there are 2 conditions for this offer:A)You need to book after 6/24, B)You need to have been registered at the time of the booking.

I would feel more comfortable if it was crystal clear. Especially since it's very possible that another JB sale will appear before the end of August.

No idea how you're reading B from that statement.
Additionally all phone reps are saying that there's no need to be enrolled prior to ticketing.
And I assumed from the beginning that it wouldn't a requirement as it would be a huge IT challenge to configure that way, rather than a general promo start date.

The Twitter reps are robots who are reading the public rules page and can't help with anything.

I'm not suggesting that the above mentioned email indicates B. I think that being registered for a promotion is a reasonable prerequisite for promotion earning activity. I'm only saying that the explicitness of A doesn't mean that there is not an additional requirement of B. The email above is not the complete T&C; it only discusses the questions the customer asked about.

either way, my KTN is in my JB profile, so hopefully that's enough.

after the whole back and forth i just re-transfered spg points over and booked 2 potential flights on JB. on monday i will cancel 1 of them IYH. hopefully tomorrow i will have the points and send the screenshot

DP: Priceline did not let me book second ticket because it conflicted with the first (would not be possible to fly on both), I took out the middle initial and then it worked.

My initial submission on 6/27 was rejected yesterday, probably because it was a mobile screenshot embedded in the email. I just resubmitted a desktop screenshot yesterday with the bottom of the screen (the "recent activity" part revealing SPG transfer) cropped out for fear of being rejected for this reason. But now that Gary from VFTW has confirmed with JB that transfers aren't an exclusion criteria and that JB's main concern is fraud, I wonder if I should resend the submission with the full screenshot so it's completely unaltered. My concern is that by the time I hear back from them this time, the promo will be over. I called JB and they said they can't expedite my submission.

Was just declined bec. the screenshot shows zero flights flown and points weren't earned from flights.
So pissed right now.
In the end a manager called me back, and claimed that the denial was for a totally different reason - I mistakenly put my name in my wife's email request - and matched the both of us.
On a side note there are still cheap $110 RT fares From NYC-BOS at the end of July.

If you cancel the flight, aka, you don't fly, they won't credit you the points. Ergo, you just wasted a lot of time and SPG points for nothing, hence the rude awakening.

Travel bank that also expires after 12 month.
Very deceptive indeed.

what i discovered once, unintentionally, and im not saying this should be done, but i had a small balance in my travel bank, i scheduled a flight, and cancelled within 24 hours, and i noticed the clock restarted.

It's either using 25k AA RT (even valued at 1.2 cpp, that's $300 worth of points), or spend the extra $40, get what's arguably a better ride, and earn 76k JB on the flight. What's the question???

Quote
Starpoint purchases can be made by members whose accounts have been active for a minimum of 14 days. Accounts that are less than the required 14 days in age will have the purchase attempt cancelled.

You're lucky they're not canceling the purchase entirely. Or unlucky if they don't post in time for you to do the points match.

Does the flight need to be booked under the account of the promotion entrant? Or would I be able to use credit from another totally unrelated account?

I would assume as long as the flight is a. Revenue and b. Linked your TrueBlue number you should be fine. You could buy a ticket on Expedia which wouldn't either be booked from your TrueBlue account.

Datapoint for anyone like me who was still waiting to be matched as of this morning. I originally submitted my screenshot on the 29th and hear back on the 2nd that it was not sufficient.  I replied to them with a new screenshot and finally called jetblue this am to ask for a status.  As others have indicated, the representation was not able to approve me on the phone but said I should wait as the responses were coming.   Within 15 minutes I received an email approval.

My experience with the phone representative was great - made me a bigger an of JB.

Don't paste into a word document.  Just attach the actual image file (.png probably).  If your computer doesn't automatically save it as a new file, just paste it into paint, and save it.

Update: Turns out they do have Microsoft Word at JetBlue.  :-)  But I sent PNG images too. Anyway, it helps to call TrueBlue. It also helps to send the email from the email address associated with your TrueBlue account (each one, because that's how they search for it initially). While on the phone with the rep, and after some clarifications about a new email address, both my wife and I received confirmation emails. So, I recommend calling and being patient, if you're still waiting.

Did they merge the new into the old or the old into the new? If the new account number is the one that was kept, you're probably running into the same issue as before with the account being less than 14 days old.

Speaking on this topic, if my kids Trueblie account says he's 25, will there be an issue attaching his Trueblue account number to the ticket if the birthyears don't match? I didn't list him under my account I gave him a separate one with a raised birthyear

As well, but honestly I would suspect that if JB were to notice someone having submitted photoshopped evidence, they would probably just penalize the member internally (remove from award program, maybe even blacklist from flying), but wouldn't spend the time or effort to press charges.

Obviously submitting photoshopped evidence is illegal and immoral, and I'm in no way advocating it-- I was just wondering if that is the reason why JB wanted to verify the information.

I'm surprised that once JB realized what was happening with the transfers, they didn't revise the terms to also include an option to simply transfer 50k points to JB for a 75k point bonus.

I don't think that there are any regulations regarding confidentiality for reward programs, so while the members may not appreciate their information being distributed, I don't think that doing so would violate any laws.

They do have a privacy policy (https://www.virginamerica.com/cms/legal/privacy-policy) which doesn't list "sharing account information with rival frequent flier programs without informing you or obtaining your consent" as an acceptable action to take with your personal information. At best it opens them up to civil suit if they shared the information. It could also be seen as an anti-competitive action, something that DOJ is always looking for in all the airlines and is especially sensitive to with Virgin because of their upcoming merger that requires DOJ clearance. Bottom line, no way they would ever share this information, huge potential downside and absolutely zero upside.

but this isn't the same thing. you can have 50,001 VA points and then use them right away. then when jetblue calls up VA the points wouldn't be there?

if someone did a photo shop and then they got an email saying they were accepted into the pointmatch. will jetblue still look into them? why would they bother sending out an approval email then?

Out of curiosity is there a good lounge in JFK or BOS in the same terminal as Jetblue that can be accessed via Priority Pass? I'm about to cancel my Prestige card but I could wait till after my flight to cancel and still get my refund, but only want to do that if there's a reason. Thanks.
There is apparently The Lounge in Terminal C at BOS, same as B6, not sure how good...it's pretty new. Priority Pass should work there.

BDL-DCA for $70 rt midweek. BDL midway between BOS and NYC...little closer to BOS. For me Leave Newton 1:30PM, BDL-DCA-BDL, home by 11:30PM, not bad.

Just booked for  8/2 EWR-BOS-EWR $115 PP RT. I received confirmation email for acceptance to the program for me and my 2 kids but wife never received hers. Called twice to confirm her enrollment but email still never came. I hope notating her account would avoid any headaches down the road. I assume booking a seat for 2 infants <2 would still be eligible to earn the promotion as long as they have a paid ticket and separate FF accounts? We will have only 1.5 hour layover in BOS, anything interesting in the airport to see?

I don't know if I agree with this. I've already seen several flights increase substantially, and I don't know if Jetblue will see a reason to have a sale with the current demand. And even if they do, there is no guarantee that those flights would work for you.

People just want something cheap. So they put a sale on some other short flight. The fact that they might not put NYC-BOS on sale is irrelevant.

Ya, I guess it's only worth it if you actually want to spend the day there. But now it's already up to $95, so unless a good sale comes out soon, I guess the right choice was made in not waiting.

Shows $95 now.

Anyway, even at $70, you lose (almost) all the savings compared to in-out by having to buy/redeem for a hotel.

I wouldn't do an in-out either way. Want to spend time there.

Why should the account make the difference ?
If an OTA ticket will work, then so should two tickets out of one account.

I could have done a same day turnaround for $70. I specifically wanted to stay, I'm going with full family and im not wasting a day of vacation. So it will cost a couple dollars extra.

I don't mean to be a broken record, and I don't have any skin in this game, but I want to point out again that you can fly BDL-DCA-BDL same day for under $80, or do an overnight same price possible.  Yes, you need to drive from NYC to BDL, and maybe that's the dealbreaker. But we're driving from Boston to BDL to do this, and BDL is only marginally closer to BOS than to JFK.

JetBlue sale.

Booked 4 tickets for @$91 per for last week in August JFK-Boston, :55 in the airport.

Only thing that has me worried, is I think I avoided the 9/11 fee ($5.60), as its only a :55 stop, so I hope B6 doesn't view it as a stop, but a real RT.

Which terminal parking should I use at JFK. Will probably have 5 hours total. Jetblue sent me an email saying terminal 7 is $23 and long term is $14. How far is the long term lot from Terminal 5? Should I just park at Terminal 5 for $33 (that seems like quite a bit)?

5:30 should be fine.

Although if it's that early in the morning on a Sunday, I'd just spend the extra $20 and not worry about shuttles and waiting.

Yeah that's what I'm a little torn about. I'm not from NY so I don't have a whole travel routine worked out and this is going to be a quick mileage run (taking off at 6:55 am and back in JFK at 10:20 am). In Denver they charge $3 an hour for short term parking. I was hoping to find something similar but no such luck :(

You appear to be talking about 2 different things. When you spend points, regardless of the origin of the points, you get 10% of those points credited back to your account. When you earn points, you do not get an earning bonus (the way you might with some FF statuses).

YMMV. My flight points posted but not the 75K bonus. I called TB and was told it should've not posted immediately so if it doesn't postt within 6 weeks then to give them a call again.
Title: Points posted

I flew on July 13th.
The points hadn't posted last night, but they were in my account this morning. The bonus points posted at the same time as the flights.

Not a one way, but I got rebooked with a new ticket number for my flight back because of a weather delay. I lost the online booking bonus because of that, but I still got the 75k.
Thanks to the weather, I managed to take a 440 pm flight from JFK to BOS, and a 515 pm back.

In some really small airports which are not built for connections, you will have to go through security again. Think Nantucket airport for example.

this would be in Vegas, so hopefully not an issue, as the return flight is the last one for the day, and missing it would require overnight stay.

I just spoke with a rep at JetBlue TrueBlue about the bonus PointsMatch points not having posted yet for a RT that ended on 7/18 (the base points posted in just under a week of each leg).  She put me on hold and then came back to confirm that we did everything correctly.  She put me on hold again to check when our bonus points would post.  She explained that the bonus points were supposed to post automatically with the base points from the return trip.  She explained further that, because of a glitch, they didn't. So now they need to do it manually, which she confirmed they would do for both mine and my wife's TrueBlue accounts.  She said it would take 24 to 48 hours for this to be taken care of.  So, if any others of you experienced this, chime in, and let us know how they're handling it for you.

Update: For my TrueBlue account, 24 to 48 hours apparently just took 5 minutes.  :-) Because my 75K bonus points have already been posted manually.

24-48 hours is the standard line they use. Same as the 6-8 weeks for points to post.

If you're very lucky, the 75k will automatically post for the flight, but I doubt that's happening.

Oh, the only reason I called this soon (8 days after the return leg) was because some people reported the bonus points matching together with the base points for the return leg.  So I figured a quick call to TrueBlue couldn't hurt.  And, so far, it didn't!

I had a hard time canceling on their website despite mosaic, probably because I used someone else's travel bank in booking, but eventually got it. Unfortunately the full refund now went into that travel bank. Also unfortunately prices are now way higher for any days that work for me, but I'll have to swallow it.

going 8/23 JFK-BOS b6 518 9:19 am arrive 10:36 return BOS-JFK b6 117 11:04 arrive 12:19. i assume its going to be same gate/plane returning. but def same terminal and nearby. otherwise, i just go standby next flight.

No reason to assume that it will be same plane. Both jfk and bos are jetblue hubs.

I have a 4 hour layover in BOS. I have a family member who registered for Pointsmatch but will only be taking one flight. Can I book him a flight, scan his boarding pass, then walk into the jetway, and then walk out? If the GA stops me I can say I'm sick. Will this work?

Just booked my points match to Savannah (had Charleston originally but I canceled that same day). $137 RT, staying over 1 night.

There are several dates in late Aug that are $109 RT NY-BOS with staying one night, for those still looking. There's also one date with JFK-IAD at $101 (8/30) - depart JFK at 6:10pm and land back at JFK at 9:51pm.

Don't JB only have paper boarding passes? (When I flew with them a few weeks ago I could not get one on my phone)
And if so, might the GA notice that the boarding pass that you scan has no scribbles from security?

Lots of times when you connect flights, and don't have to reclear security again, you don't get scribbles on the second leg boarding pass.

That's true, strictly speaking, but you still need to call to have the infant added:
Quote from: http://help.jetblue.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/webcgi.exe?New,Kb=askBlue,case=obj(1939)
Lap Children Traveling Within the U.S.
Customers traveling with lap children are required to call 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583) to provide JetBlue with the name and birthdate of the lap child.
Quote
Infant ticketing
Infant tickets are required for all international flights. For U.S. domestic flights, infants do not require tickets unless they are occupying their own seat. Lap children under the age of 2 years old on U.S. domestic flights do not need to be ticketed. JetBlue files $0 infant fares in the GDS and expects all agencies to ticket their own international infants.
 
PNRs with infants traveling as a lap child or in their own seat need to show the following:
  • Infants name the name field
  • Infant SSRs are associated to an adult
  • Secure Flight Documentation needs to be added for the infant in the form of the INFT SSR
Basically, they're not ticketed (as I assume they would be for international), but there needs to be a record of them being on the plane.

I just booked it with the lap child in the first place, but you should probably just call at this point. And as far as your comment about buying a ticket - I personally see no reason to spend an extra $100+ for my 4 month old on a sub-2 hour flight. I booked aisle and window seats toward the back, hopefully it'll be empty and they'll let me bring the car seat on anyway.

There's the same reason to spend $100+ for a 4 month old on a sub 2 hour flight as there is to go to BOS for 35 minutes.

That's backwards. The latter is being done to 'save' money (more accurately make money), while the former is purely for comfort when compared to just keeping the child on your lap.

I actually am this time, but I have done same day turnarounds on other MRs. That's the way it goes, there's not always time and/or money for a whole 'vacation'. Or, "don't mix business with pleasure".

Yes. Shockingly, if you limit yourself to 1 specific date, a Sunday no less, it's gonna be expensive. And btw, a sale most likely won't help for that.

Also, there is no such Jetblue flight. Earliest LGB-LAS is 10:25AM and latest LAS-LGB is 5:25PM. Adjust your requirements and/or open your wallet.

Just flew JB. I applied for the JB CC, and when I got to the airport I was charged for baggage. I went back online, and realized that in the fine print it says that the original ticket (and any changes) needs to be purchased with the JB card. Unfortunately I only applied for the JB card after purchasing the ticket, (and even had I had the CC at the time, I wouldn't have known the JB fine print that it's necessary to purchase the ticket with the JB card as most other airline credit cards do not require purchasing the ticket with their CC).

Any advice in fighting the charges?

Actually 300-900, if I'm not mistaken.

It is a good deal, but JetBlue seats are pretty decent as it is, so it's not entirely necessary, depending on the route. I booked them LGA-FLL (600 points each way) just so I could take the front row on the flight.

(50k for 5 round-trip tickets, plus 6k for the seats, from a revenue based program. )

I was one who mentioned that I was concerned about the language. It says "by 8/31" which technically means up until ~12:01am on 8/31, barring 8/31 flights from qualifying.  DAN and CSRs say that it still includes up until 11:59pm on 8/31 (even though I couldn't find that written anywhere).

Bottom line: Dan and CSRs say 8/31 flights are ok.

By default if you have a "return" you don't have OW tickets unless you specify that.
You can't post half a sentence and expect it to be understood, this isn't gemara b'iyun.

For all the reader knows you are saying you bought an 8/31 return ticket and are wondering yourself if 8/31 qualifies for all the ad bichlal questions that gemarakups ask here every time.

I meant to say that I won't know the outcome until the promo is over, I know that B6 when they write a date it means 11:59 PM and not 12:00...

My question is (although obviously it wouldn't make sense to do) if the cost of the site was split from the forums would they each cost 5 figures on their own or is it more of a tag along type of thing

what would happen if you just show up late and say you missed the flight? ive done it a couple of times and they just put me on next flight but of course that depends on availability.

Yeah, I was thinking about that. If possible, I would like it to be more concrete. Also, I would like to be sure that this would still activate the JB match.

The other option is to throw away the ticket and reorder it at the later time. It would be $130 lost, but it might be the way to go. I'll call JB now.

Friend missed his flight and confirmed he is still getting points. It did mess up automated process (the missed leg was not auto credited and have to wait 2 weeks to get it credited manually) but rep confirmed he should still get points

Interesting to know.

Just got off the phone after a 30+ min coversation with JB. Another issue is that I booked my flight with OTA because it offers free 24 hr cancellation. Unfortunately, because of this, the reservation doesn't show up when I log onto jetblue.com online (oddly enough, I can pull it up on my phone app). I had JB change the reservation to 8/30. The agent emailed me an updated itinerary and gave me the ticket number. My concern is that because the flight isn't linked to my TrueBlue account, I won't automatically get points for the flight, and more importantly, JB won't automatically give me the 75K match. The agent said I have to call JB after my flight and have them credit my account. She said that SHOULD trigger the 75K match. However, my flight is on 8/30, which is dangerously close to 8/31 deadline.

Did you pay a change fee or fare difference ?

The new flight is actually a little cheaper. Even so, I had to pay $28. They do take the fare difference into account. I was supposed to pay an additional $50 fee for transferring the management of the itinerary over from the OTA over to JB, but the agent was able to waive it.

My main concern is that I can't see this flight when I log in to my TB account. The whole thing about manual credit isn't comforting, especially since my flight is on 8/30 and by the time all this is sorted it, it'll be past 8/31.

Post by: MosheD on August 12, 2016, 01:15:39 PM
The agents are pretty good imo.
As long as they see you flew by 8/31 everything should be fine.

But call up later, use your confirmation number and link your trueblue account. If all that is done should auto credit

Why can't you link the flight to your trueblue account?

With Mosaic status you can purchase those seats for 300 points.

I did that for 300.

It was an even better deal because I earned an additional 200 points per leg that had even-more-space. Once you add in the 10% redemption rebate (B6+ CC), the cost of the even-more-space goes down from 300 to 70!

Thanks. I'm feeling less guilty wasting 300 points a person on a one hour flight. (Scandalously enough, I transferred those points from amex, so it was 375MR a person, or about $10 roundtrip. This cuts it down to $6, which feels better for some reason.)

I called JB CSR last week to confirm my enrollment in 75K mile promotion since e-mail was so corny & unprofessional.
She said only rule is to complete 1 r/t or 2 o/w by end of 31 AUG.  Got $29 o/w tix LGB to LAS for entire family.
Now looking for kid friendly hotels there w/water slides!

Did she not mention anything about multi city? I flew a multi city begining on the 1st and finishing on the 11th. Nothing posted yet...

Call them up. Try to get them to manually credit 75k to your account. Then, if you're daring, jump on a plane.
They manually credited it , now why would jumping on another plane help? I don't see why it should post Again

if the reason it didnt post was because of an issue with the flight getting credited but your account has on it that a flight should trigger the bonus then another flight should trigger the bonus

Right it actually wasn't credited either for my family members as well, they were on same flight. Would it be possible for the flight to still be credited or it wouldn't past 2 weeks.

It's possible they only credited the base points and then the bonus automatically followed. Is there any email that gets sent out for the bonus points once they get posted? I just got the typical email that points were received but no mention of the point match in email.
