The Most Flexible Points-Pooling Program Just Got Better

Thanks to JetBlue’s new pooling program, you can combine frequent flyer points with anyone you want. The airline already had one of the industry’s most accommodating family-pooling programs, but now the perks are getting even better.

This new program applies to members of TrueBlue, the airline’s frequent flyer program. With JetBlue’s old pooling program, TrueBlue customers could combine points with up to five children and two adults. Each member chose how many points they wanted to contribute to the pool, but only the person in charge of the group could redeem these points.

Now, pools can be made up of seven members of all ages, and they don’t have to be relatives. Each person contributes all their points to the pool instead of a percentage. However, every member can redeem points from the pool once the group leader grants them access.

This new program lets you share points with anyone now: family members, friends, roommates, neighbors, and even strangers. JetBlue is the only major U.S. airline that offers a free points-pooling program. Luckily, redeeming TrueBlue points is easy. The frequent flyer program doesn’t have any blackout dates, all seats are available, and points never expire.

So what are you waiting for? Grab a friend or someone you’ve never met and start pooling.
