February Buy Miles/Points Promos: JetBlue (50%), American (10%), Choice (30%), Alaska (40%), Hyatt (30%), Hilton (100%) & IHG (75%)

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found a few offers ending this month.  Always check the math to make sure that buying miles & points makes sense for you.  Do not buy miles & points speculatively unless you have a use in mind.  With that said, here are several buy miles/points promos that are ending this month.  First up, JetBlue is offering up to a 50% bonus, depending on the number of JetBlue TrueBlue points you purchase.  This offer expires today – February 4.

Here are the complete terms & conditions of the JetBlue promo:

These TrueBlue points can be used towards award redemptions. These are not Mosaic qualifying points.

Minimum point purchase per transaction is 1,000 points; maximum point purchase per transaction is 30,000 points.
