JetBlue points mint devaluation?
i was looking to book a JetBlue mint flight using B6 points and noticed that the yield per point has changed over last week or so. For flights that are listed as 549 one way is showing as costing 53400 points. That is a way lower yield that the usual 1.3 cent valuation where they usually reside. On the same flight, the non mint fares are still pricing out around a 1.3 cent valuation. A 219 dollar blue fare is 15,900 points.
Is B6 doing this as a way to dissuade folks from redeeming for MINT? I looked at various dates and noticed this is not exclusive to certain dates. Surprised this isn’t getting more publicity in the blog community where we all reside.
I think they will see how customers react and then devalue the rest later this month perhaps?
