JetBlue Offers $20 PayPal Credit, and Saves Lowest Fares for Own Website
JetBlue, like many airlines, often sells fares for less on its own site than it does through metasearch engines such as Kayak or online booking sites such as Orbitz. Plus, as do many airlines, JetBlue often throws in added incentives to book on its site. The latest? A $20 credit to your PayPal account, but only if you book on its website. More on this over in the Airfarewatchdog.com blog.
