Quick Thoughts

The JetBlue offer appears to be highly targeted. Between my wife and I, we only had the offer on one card. A discount on flights could certainly be helpful if you’re already looking at buying a ticket.

On the HotelStorm side, remember that booking through a third party like this will typically eliminate any elite benefits or point earnings on your stay — it may even mean that you have to pay for Wi-Fi. Still, fifty dollars sounds like the right price point to make that trade in some situations. The fact that the terms state “each time” indicate that it is repeatable — meaning that it might be possible to save $50 on every night of a multi-night stay by simply reserving each night separately. That maneuver could necessitate a room switch, but if you book the same room type it is more likely that the hotel will let you keep the same room throughout the stay. I also find this kind of offer useful for a last-minute change of plans — when hotel rates can often be higher.
