Have any of you noticed points redemptions with Mint lately?

I saw this article that seems to indicate a rather (IMO) big cut in the value of points redemptions for Mint:

https://thepointsguy.com/news/jetblu...t-devaluation/

I'm wondering now if it's worth pursing Jetblue points, or using UR to book via Chase website (potential 1.5/point or more)?
But also wondering if TPG's observations match FT folks' observations.

Talk amongst yourselves (Barbara Streisand, her legs are like butta).
LOL

I saw the same point values yesterday 3/1/19 when searching for a May 4th Mint JFK-SFO and did a search for November 16th with the same result. So itís not just seasonal at this point. This does add value to the CSR since you can maintain the redemption rate. I hold both Barclays AF CC and CSR and Iím now wondering where I should direct my spending when buying Jetblue flights(6x vs. 3x, but URís get you Mosaic Status)

Iím also interested in seeing how other folks will get affected. Incidently, CSR portal still has $.015 redemptions. I wonder if they are planning any adjustments...

That stinks.

I'm guessing it's partly getting ready for the Europe rollout along with partly an overdue devaluation.
