Q. I recently purchased tickets to Puerto Rico for June on JetBlue. I kept waiting and watching for a great sale price but was afraid prices would go up, and I finally purchased my tickets which were $360 each. The very next day you guys posted the sale price at $295. Is there any way I can call the airline and have them refund my money or give me the balance from my purchase?
A. All airlines used to offer fee-free price drop refunds, but that was eons ago. Now only Alaska, Southwest, and JetBlue do, in the form of a travel credit.
The only catch is that the lower fare must be valid on the exact same flight, and same dates originally booked. You can call 1-800-JETBLUE and get a credit for the fare difference applied to your account, valid for travel for up to one year.
By the way, this also applies to JetBlue points if the points needed have somehow gone down.
