JetBlue 25% off Winter Sale & 3x the Bonus Points
JetBlue is offering 25% ALL flights if bought by 11/20 with very few blackout dates for last minute Holiday Travel! Buy on JetBlue’s home page and use either promo code WINTER25 OR WINTER20 depending on your date of travel and save 25% off sky high holiday prices! This deal must be booked by tomorrow night and you must fly 11/27/2012 – 12/20/12 (for promo code WINTER25) and travel between 1/7/13 – 2/14/13 (WINTER20). As you’ll notice that JetBlue’s sale fares are before or after the holiday season. However, if you’re flexible and can move thanksgiving or Christmas by a few days (my family always does) then this is an excellent opportunity for you to get away. JetBlue flights are good system wide but travel MUST originate in the USA.
Also, don’t forget, JetBlue is offerings 3x Bonus Points on all flights as long as you travel by 12/31/2012. This means you’ll earn 12 points per dollar spent as long as you buy and fly before the end of the year! This is a great way to gain elite status quickly with JetBlue!
