JetBlue Airways’ frequent flyer program, TrueBlue, offers great rewards for its members.  It’s free to join and can only done online here.  Children under the age of 13 can be enrolled in TrueBlue by calling 1(800) JETBLUE (538-2583).

As a base, TrueBlue members receive three points for every dollar spent toward a flight (excluding taxes and fees).  Then, an extra three points are earned for every dollar when flights are booked online at JetBlue.com.

  An additional two points are awarded if the member uses JetBlue's cobranded MasterCard credit card to purchase the flight. The price of flights in points depends on the fare of the flight in U.S. dollars.

JetBlue says that TrueBlue points will never expire for any reason. And travelers can use their points for any seat at any time, with no blackout dates, which is usually the case with legacy airlines.Families can pool their miles to use to book flights.

The current policy states that if you book a flight on jetblue.com, you earn double, with six points per dollar. Flights bought elsewhere result in three points per dollar spent.
