JetBlue Mosaic Benefits 2

1Members with a valid TrueBlue Mosaic badge will not pay the applicable JetBlue change/cancellation fee when they change or cancel their JetBlue flight or JetBlue Getaways vacation reservation. The change/cancel fee will also be waived for any traveler on the same reservation as the Mosaic member; the change/cancel fee for any other traveler not on that same reservation will still apply. For changes, a flight fare increase or Getaways package price increase may apply, and for Getaways, other Travel Supplier change or cancellation fees may still apply. For tickets booked through an entity other than JetBlue, booking agent or other third party change or cancellation fees may still apply. The Mosaic member will be responsible for any increase in fare or package price and for all change/cancellation fees other than the JetBlue change/cancellation fee, all of which must be paid at time of change or cancellation or when required by the party assessing the fee.

2Weight and size limits and exceptions for itineraries including flights marketed or operated by other airlines apply.

3No blackout dates apply to use of TrueBlue points on JetBlue flights operated by JetBlue. Blackout dates may apply to partner or code share or interline flights.

4Certain flights require more points and higher government taxes/fees to redeem award travel. The number of points required for a particular flight is based on the published base fare at the time of booking, which depends on, among other things, the flight chosen and applicability of peak travel periods. Taxes and fees apply to award flights, are the responsibility of the passenger, and will vary based on your departure and destination cities. For domestic award flights, taxes/fees range from $2.50-$5.00 for one-way and $5.00-$10.00 for roundtrip flights. For international award flights, taxes/fees range from $2.50-$142.70 for one-way and $28.22-$147.70 for roundtrip flights. Award flight fares also do not include fees for oversized/overweight/extra baggage, $25 fee per person for fares purchased by phone or at an airport or ticket office, and other fees for products/services sold separately.

5TrueBlue members earn three (3) TrueBlue points per dollar spent on their individual JetBlue flight, plus three (3) bonus points per dollar for flights booked on jetblue.com, for a total of six (6) TrueBlue points per dollar. Members with a TrueBlue Mosaic badge will earn an additional three (3) bonus points per dollar spent on their individual JetBlue flight, plus the three (3) bonus points per dollar for flights booked on jetblue.com, for a total of nine (9) TrueBlue points per dollar. Points will be earned on the base fare of the flight only. Points will not be earned on government taxes/fees, travel insurance, or other fees or charges (e.g., change/cancel fees, etc.) All TrueBlue Points are subject to the TrueBlue program Terms and Conditions.

Conclusion

There is currently lot of unhappiness with both United and Delta frequent fliers. It is also unclear at this point what will come out of the combined AAdvantage / Dividend Miles program.

If you have status with the five airlines that JeBlue matches, there is no downside of taking advantage of the offer to get the status until the end of 2014. Maybe you end up on some JetBlue flights between now and end of the year.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

Travelers showing valid enrollment and status with an eligible loyalty program will qualify for TrueBlue Mosaic status for the remainder of 2014; other participants must complete the Challenge in order to enjoy Mosaic status for the remainder of 2014; all participants must complete the Challenge in order to enjoy Mosaic status for 2015 (1/1/15 – 12/31/15). Mosaic status and benefits will not be effective until JetBlue notifies you via email of your Mosaic status; no retroactive Mosaic status or benefits will be granted. JetBlue will have the right to deny any application or to refuse entry into the Challenge or to deny Mosaic status to anyone, in JetBlue’s sole discretion. In order to successfully complete the Challenge, accepted participants must earn 3,750 base flight TrueBlue points within the 90-day period specified by JetBlue, in its sole discretion. Base flight TrueBlue points are the 3 points per $1 that TrueBlue members earn on the base fare of their individual JetBlue flight.

All other bonus points, partner points, booking bonuses or any other points will not count towards the 3,750 point requirement. You must enter your TrueBlue number at the time of booking a JetBlue flight in order to earn TrueBlue points towards the Challenge. The amount of base flight points earned by a Challenge participant will be solely determined by JetBlue and its tallying. JetBlue will be the sole and official timekeeper that will determine, in its sole discretion, when the 90-day Challenge period for a participant begins and ends. Whether or not a Challenge participant has completed the Challenge and earned TrueBlue Mosaic will be solely determined by JetBlue. JetBlue shall not be obligated to review any records or other documents or information from Challenge participants or to consider any arguments by Challenge participants. JetBlue shall have the right to disqualify from the Challenge any participant JetBlue deems, in its sole discretion, has violated the terms of the Challenge or engaged in any type of fraud, misrepresentation or improper conduct. JetBlue may, in its sole discretion and for any reason, without notice or liability, modify or terminate the Challenge at any time. All deadlines based on Eastern Standard Time. Additional restrictions apply. See the TrueBlue Terms and Conditions for details.
