Starting today, JetBlue customers can link their TrueBlue and Lyft accounts to earn points while using Lyft to ride to and from any airport nationwide (up to 1,200 points per year). With a seamless integration of Lyft within the JetBlue app, you now can book flights, check in and confirm your Lyft ride all in one place.New users who sign up for Lyft through JetBlue will automatically receive a $15 ride credit or 750 TrueBlue points. I personally value 750 TrueBlue points at ~$10.50, so the $15 ride credit may be a better option, assuming you are a new user.
When you link your accounts, you’ll earn 30 points per ride to and from the airport, regardless of distance/time, with a cap of 1,200 points per year. The new user signup bonus of 750 points does not apply towards the cap, so a new user theoretically could earn up to 1,950 points in a year if you opt to chose the points instead of the $15 ride credit.
There will also be access to discounts through in-flight and digital promotions with this new promotion. I’m curious to know what those may be!
Additionally, Lyft will transform Terminal 5 at JFK with a designated pickup and drop-off area, exclusively for travelers wishing to ride with Lyft to and from the JetBlue Terminal.
You can earn a maximum of 1,200 TrueBlue points ($~16.80 value) per year with the new JetBlue and Lyft partnership, but it’s only valued on rides to and from airports. While I’m not exactly jumping out of my seat for this promotion, it’s always nice to earn extra points with loyalty programs and apps that I use regularly.
