Lyft users and JetBlue members have something to be happy about. Recent news of a partnership between Lyft and JetBlue means that you can now earn JetBlue points whenever you head to the airport.
The new partnership means that you will earn up to 30 TrueBlue points for every ride you take to or from the airport. Unfortunately, the points are capped at 1,200 per year, which amounts to 40 total trips. While this may somewhat disadvantage heavy business travelers, if you're not a road warrior, it’s a great bonus.
To take advantage of the new offer, simply log into your Lyft account page, and then head over to the connected accounts page and connect your JetBlue account to your Lyft account. All you need to do to link your accounts is to enter your True Blue membership number, and you’re done.
New Lyft Users
If you've never used Lyft before, there is a nice signup bonus with JetBlue. When you join Lyft, you can choose from a $15 credit with the service or 750 points to your TrueBlue account. It’s worth noting that these first 750 points do not count towards your 1,200-point yearly cap. However, regarding value, TrueBlue points are being valued at 1.5 cents, hence giving you a value of $11, so you are better off taking the $15 credit with Lyft.
Lyft Integration and Terminal 5 at JFK
According to a recent blog post by Lyft, their service will be integrated directly into the JetBlue app, eliminating the need to switch apps on the go. For regular users of JFK terminal 5, Lyft announced an improved pick-up and drop-off area. They had the following to say about terminal 5:
“Lyft will transform Terminal 5 at New York City’s JFK airport with a designated pick-up and drop-off area, offering unparalleled convenience and delight for travelers, whether arriving or departing.”
Overall, while this is not the most mouth-watering of deals, it is certainly a nice perk for regular JetBlue fliers that uses ride sharing services. Maybe that'll get you to switch from Uber to Lyft?
