JetBlue has introduced their new Family Pooling program where families and small groups can choose to share their TrueBlue points for no additional cost. Travellers can elect to collect points individually, share some, or share all of their points in a group account.
TrueBlue is a free program where you can earn points on your travel and use them to redeem free travel. There is no expiration due to account inactivity and recent additions to the TrueBlue program include TrueBlue Mosaic. TrueBlue members who fly 30 segments and earn 12,000 base points within a calendar year (or earn 15,000 base points in a calendar year) automatically earn Mosaic benefits.
Family Pooling was developed based on customer feedback. A “family” is defined as a group of people united by a common affiliation. With TrueBlue Family Pooling, customers can determine their own “family” based on what is most beneficial to them. Everyone in the family counts. Whether it’s immediate family members, same sex partners or a couple of friends, Family Pooling is designed to improve the overall customer experience and allow groups to conveniently earn and redeem points.
If you would like to pool your points, visit jetblue.com/familypooling to set up their family and select a “Head of Household.” Your family can consist of up to two adults at least 21 years old and up to five children, under the age of 21. Family members can choose to have 10 to 100 percent of their points pooled into the joint account. The “Head of Household” can then redeem points from the family account for any family member’s travel. One way award flights are available starting at just 5,000 points plus $2.50 taxes/fees with no blackout dates and points that don’t expire.
Now if only the other travel reward programs would follow suit!
