With fully lie-flat seats, artisanal dining options, the free inflight entertainment, revitalizing amenities and more, Mint is the best air travel option domestically. They compete with prices as well. Mint is not available on all JetBlue routes. In fact, it is limited to a few destinations, some of them seasonal. But, they are expanding it rapidly.
Today JetBlue sent out an email announcing yet another expansion. Beginning April 15, 2018, Mint will be offered on the route from NYC’s JFK to Seattle.
Although Mint flight are competitively priced compared to other airlines, most readers are more interested in award flights. Award price is closely related to the cash price. TrueBlue points can typically be redeemed for about 1.4 cents each on average. The easiest way to get TruBlue points would probably be the three JetBlue credit cards. The JetBlue Plus and JetBlue Business cards also give you 10% of your points back every time you redeem.
Another way to get TrueBlue points is by transferring them from partners such as Citi ThankYou points or Amex Membership Rewards. You can also earn 3X TrueBlue points on your Amazon purchases.
It’s great to see more Mint options being added, especially from NYC. They have a great product and TrueBlue points are relatively easy to come buy through credit cards, transfers or just from plain old regular spending.
