JetBlue’s Family Pooling Program Unveiled

Add to Favorites:

Travelers who want to combine points with family and friends to earn trips faster, can now do that with JetBlue. Earlier this month the airline announced the Family Pooling option for its TrueBlue loyalty program.

The ins and outs

A family can include any two adults, according to the low-cost carrier’s rules. That makes it possible for two people who are not related, including friends and same sex partners, to pool their points. The group can also include up to five children under 21 years old.

One member is designated as the head of the household and that person redeems the family points for any member’s travel. Flyers can only belong to one pooling account at a time.

Folks sign up for the program at the Jetblue website where they can invite others to join. Members choose to contribute 10% to 100% of the points they earn throughout the year to the pool. Travelers can change their contribution levels once a year.

There are no blackout dates or transfer fees with this program and points never expire. One-way award flights start at 5,000 points. Taxes and fees fall in the $2.50 to $5.00 range for domestic flights.

TrueBlue Badges

There have been other changes to the TrueBlue loyalty program this year, including the addition of 280 badges, each one offering members a different bonus. Badges are earned by participating in a wide range of activities, including booking flights and taking part in social media promotions.

TrueBlue Mosaic is one of the newer badges travelers can acquire by earning 15,000 points a year or 12,000 miles by taking 30 flights. Mosaic badge holders access a variety of benefits, including expedited security lines, early boarding, waived fees, and getting their first and second bags checked for free. Mosaic-level members also earn three to nine bonus TrueBlue points per dollar when booking a flight.

JetBlue is a New York-based airline founded in 1998. They fly 700 flights a day to destinations in 79 cities in the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean. The JetBlue Fleet is made up of 190 aircraft.
