The JetBlue TrueBlue loyalty program is one of the best in the industry. With no blackout dates and redemption rates based on the ticket cost rather than the route, you can really take advantage of some great deals. To entice people to sign up for its frequent flyer program, JetBlue is offering 5,000 bonus points to anyone who registers for the program, books a flight and flies by April 16, 2017.

Both enrollment in the program and registration is required before you book the ticket, and it's easy to earn the bonus - a one-way or roundtrip flight will qualify you for the 5,000 bonus points. Once the promotion ends, you should see the points posted to your account within 4-6 weeks, and you won't have to do anything on your end. With the 5,000 bonus points, you may be able to get a one-way ticket somewhere since the points required for a ticket is correlated to the price of the flight.

If you want to get more out of the loyalty program, you should definitely check out the Barclaycard credit card here:
