TrueBlue points valuation?

Hello. From my own redemptions and from reading the various bloggers, I've always thought of JetBlue points being worth around 1.3 each. My last redemption, though, was only 1 (a nearly-full Mint flight). I'm pricing out a trip right now between JFK and Phoenix at Christmastime and seeing the same thing my points are worth 1 versus the cash fare. Is there some rhyme or reason to this? It's really annoying for these points to be worth 30% less than I've been thinking they were worth... What am I missing here?

TrueBlue points tend to be worth less for higher fare classes (i.e. more expensive flights).

What klanfa said is correct. The Points Guy wrote a great article about the worth of TrueBlue points a couple of years ago but I believe the points breakdown is still relevant today: https://thepointsguy.com/2016/03/max...etblue-mosaic/
