JetBlue & All-You-Can-Jet: Tip-of-the-Day #196


Everyone’s talking about JetBlue's new All-You-Can-Jet-Pass for $599, which gives you unlimited flights for a month. The question is whether or not it’s a good deal and THAT depends on where you want to go and how many trips you want to take. For a business traveler who flies frequently, it might be a really good deal…and it might also be a good deal for people in long distance relationships, someone with friends and family in a number of JetBlue cities, etc.

The pass is good for travel between Sept. 8 and Oct. 8 and must be purchased by Aug. 21 which means you have 3 days to do it! To buy the pass, you have to become a TrueBlue member (easy to do), then you just have to call to purchase passes and book your flights (1-800-538-2583). Note: the airline won't charge its customary $15 fee for phone bookings. With the pass, you can pick any flight with available seats, even if the cheap seats are sold out, which is nice. Taxes are included for domestic tickets but you'll need to pay additional taxes for trips to Puerto Rico and international destinations.

This isn't the first time JetBlue has tried to boost travel, they have also recently offered refunds to travelers who have lost their jobs after they've booked tickets, have given triple miles to frequent flyers and have been announcing deals on Twitter.

If you've got plenty of time to travel and really want to cover some ground, you can also consider an around-the-world airline ticket, one of the best deals around, which is usually good for a year of travel. Prices start as low as $1,500!

Also checkout: a Greyhound Discovery pass for $499 for 60 days or a USA Railpass from Amtrak for 30 days for $579.
