TrueBlue points now worth ~25% more than before

When the TrueBlue program launched it was clear that the points had a relatively fixed value range. Good news: That range has moved up about 25%. Your points are now more valuable! The old range was roughly 0.8-1.3 cents/point. The new range is 1.05-1.55 cents based on a study of 51 data points this past weekend.

Very nice to see the value of the program increasing!

You're sure the point values just didnt shift based on the time of day/day of week you did the check? When I was booking a recent vacation I was noticing a swing of 5k or greater points depending on the day booked.

(they give you a point refund if you call them when you can see a lower point fare)

I know the point values shift by fare; was the cash fare changing on the days you were searching as well?

I don't remember in that instance, but I know in other instances when i was booking w/ cash vs points that the cash varies pretty widely too.
