 I received an email from Jet2 today. Seems they have taken a dose of "sense" with the flights you can take with points:

Now you can fly for absolutely NOTHING! How is it possible? Well, we’ve made travelling tax-free when you use your myJet2 points.* And as you’ve already collected 1207 points^, you can take advantage of totally free flights right away!

All you have to do is log into your account, visit the ’spend my points’ page and take your pick from the routes listed below for travel in September and October. Then simply enter the code FREETAX on the payment page and hey presto! Your taxes and charges will be completely FREE!*

In fact, the extra savings you make will certainly give your spending money a boost, so you can be sure of enjoying your time away. As you can imagine, this limited-time promotion has got off to a flying start! So book a free flight before the offer ends and
log into your myJet2 account now.

I always wondered how free flights could be so expensive in the past, in fact, free flights were more expensive than full price Ryanair flights!!! It may mean you have to collect a few more points to get a flight, but a much better way of running the scheme I think.

I also got the e mail but when i check the "Eligible routes"  (see below) there is zero for Spain.

The only reason i fly Jet2 is for their link between Newcastle and Murcia there are no other routes that interest me so yes i agree its a good idea from Jet2 but the routes available are probably just their loss makers anyway.

Eligible Routes

Routes from Blackpool
Routes from East Midlands
Routes from Edinburgh
Routes from Glasgow
Routes from Leeds Bradford
Routes from Manchester
Routes from Newcastle

Hadn't gone as far as looking John .

That said, I just looked at the website whilst logged in. Your list doesn't show Leeds to Murcia or Alicante, but if I actually try to book on the website, Alicante and Murcia are offering rewards/ points flights. 

I also tried looking at Newcastle to Alicante and there are rewards flights there. Haven't gone as far as booking to put in the redemption code though to see if it cancels out the charge.

Hi Mark,

This is the e mail page i received from Jet2.

If you scroll to the bottom it shows destinations available from Newcastle.

Note nothing to Spain....i agree i can still redeem my points on other eligible dates / fares to Murcia but not completely free. I have well over 2000 points but never seem to manage to get an eligible flight when i want to go.

One other tip for everyone... never log in to see if there is a flight available on a certain date then log out if you want to think about it because when you log back in.. lo and behold i guarantee the flight has just shot up in price.

It's these wonderful "cookies" that websites use to track your habits. - Friendly low fares
