[Update: Beware] Act Today 6/30 If You Forgot the JetBlue Status Match/Challenge but are Doing the Virgin America PointsMatch Deal

Update: 7/1 17:42 EDT: reports now that JetBlue is honoring the promo, see View from the Wing.

Update 6/30 20:18 EDT: reports coming in on sources such as Dan’s Deals Forums of JetBlue changing terms of the PointsMatch promotion requiring that Virgin America points be earned from flying, not transfers. JetBlue has not changed the public terms of PointsMatch and has not made official comment on the contradictory actions by their agents. If you have already been enrolled in PointsMatch, then by all means go for the Status Match tonight. If you have not enrolled in PointsMatch or are pending, it won’t hurt to go ahead with Status Match unless they later preclude you from some future match, however it is looking iffy if you will get PointsMatch. On its own, having Mosaic through end of 2016 will be useful to some.

Dan’s Deals sent a helpful status match reminder on JetBlue’s current offer, expiring today, 6/30/16. Register here.

(See here for more on the JetBlue -Virgin America PointsMatch which you have until 7/4 to register, and may need a few days’ lead-time to put the necessary points in position.)

    I sent in the screenshot to pointsmatch@jetblue.com three days ago and still have heard nothing.

    Is there any recourse?

    I resent it yesterday to no avail.

  • @Michael – looks like a mess, Dan’s Deals is updating regularly from his forums.

  • Laura

    Actually, given the mess. you may want to change your headline and actually caution people in the body of the post, so they know what they’re getting into and the increased likelihood, now, that the terms of the offer won’t be honored…

  • @Laura – I am updating it now as I catch up on the news. In Australia so this happened overnight for me. My wife’s transfer to Virgin America is in process so debating whether to try to stop it or not. Seems mixed reports of them honoring and not are coming in.

  • Laura

    Sorry to hear you guys are caught in the fracas. Hopefully, JetBlue will honor the terms of the original offer and approve everyone if they make today’s deadline. That would be the right thing to do. Naturally, they probably never expected to be issuing so many thousands upon thousands of miles, so they’re stuck. Indeed, reports seem to be a mixed bag. I decided not to go for it, since I need my Starpoints for a large redemption coming up next year, and I’ve never flown JetBlue, and likely never will. Best of luck and enjoy Down Under!

  • @Laura – got the update out. FrequentMiler makes a good point that those denied may have sent a screenshot that includes their recent activity, which is not required by JetBlue according it its sample. We’ll see.

    First stop has been Cairns, I had heard mixed things so it was a pleasant surprise we both enjoyed it and Holiday Inn is a good value at 20k/night.

    Its simple. People are dumb as a rock. They want the points and do not even fly on Jet Blue.
    So why bother ? These people clog up the system.

    Jet Blue says TAKE A PICTURE of your Virgin Airlines home page account,add your name and Jet Blue account number.

    Just attach the picture to the email.

    Done Deal

  • @JB – hard to legislate against dumb or to force people to follow instructions.
