For the first time in almost 3 years I made a preventable blatant mistake. Helping my brother no less. UGH!
Waste of a credit pull basically...

Drove out to a Target in Colorado to buy a REDcard this past January and loaded it with funds during that initial purchase. Lost out on months of MS because I never registered it (and therefore could not reload it). And now it's too late.

What does that mean. I don't want the flight so not going to wait that long to actually cancel.

If there's a schedule change or inclement weather, you can cancel for free.

I know. Those are two legitimate reasons to refund a non refundable ticket. Although it would require you to keep it (I'm assuming much more than 260) until that happens

So I should just wait it out? The flight is for mid November .

Any chance of HUCA working saying I by mistake forgot to book the second leg as a refundable? I called once already and got transferred to a manager that said she can waive the cancellation fee but the second leg would have to be refunded to a jetblue travel bank.
