JetBlue Not Honoring the Deal?


Earlier I had written a couple of posts where I had weighed the value of converting SPG points to Virgin to take advantage of the JetBlue promo. Now, according to Dan’s Deals, the discussion is moot as they appear not to be honoring the deal.

The lesson I learned from today was to fully research the terms and conditions of all programs involved well in advance and take advantage of such offers before a company changes its promotion.

My analysis of whether it was a good deal or a bad deal was too incomplete both for me to write a useful post and for me to pull the trigger. From now on, I’ll sit out on both unless I have all the information needed to make a meaningful assessment.

One thing I did learn was that Virgin Atlantic has a terrible award chart compared to Virgin America. It’s 80k RT on Virgin Atlantic to London from the US versus 35k on Virgin America.

  1. If JetBlue does not honor a promotion according to its own terms and condition, DOT probably will intervene after receiving tons of complaints.
