Small excerpt:

Quote:
NEW YORK, March 3 /CNW/ - As JetBlue Airways Corporation (Nasdaq: JBLU - News) announced earlier this morning, they have launched the Buy TrueBlue(R) Points service that will allow members of the low-fare airline's customer loyalty program, TrueBlue, more ways to earn free travel. In a partnership with Points International Ltd. (OTCBB: PTSEF, TSX: PTS) - owner and operator of the world's leading reward-management portal, Points.com - TrueBlue members will now be able to buy points for themselves or give points to other members via Points.com's industry-leading points-purchase platform.

The entire article: http://biz.yahoo.com/cnw/080303/jetblue_trueblue_serv.html?.v=1

I think that this is certainly an interesting way to earn free travel. Kind of ironic.

So, let me get this straight. In order for me to earn a free ticket, I have to pay for the points. Yes, that is ironic, because I'm pretty sure I could get a round-trip ticket cheaper than what I would pay for the points to GET that round trip ticket. Kind of stupid if you ask me.

It's no different than buying SkyMiles, AAdvantage Miles, or any other frequent flier program miles/credits/points. If you are close to being eligible for a free ticket, upgrade, etc., but are just a few miles/credits/points short of the award or upgrade, you can buy the needed amount.

That makes more sense. I was hoping that people wouldn't spend X amount of dollars for 25,000 miles.

Its about time that they start a rewards program. Adding this will continue to make Jetblue stronger and able to compte with other low cost airlines. I think that they need to boost their west coast ops more. I also which they would station some E190s on the west coast. I could see them coming to Yuma, if they have a good west coast in the future.

...and an American Express card to go with the program that works with the "True Blue" program.

Wow i would have thought they would have already had this for quite some time. I know NW has had it since I can remember, i have actually bought miles before so that I could upgrade to business class using miles which was a lot cheaper then paying for it.
