JetBlue Is Giving Away 1,000 Free Tickets. Want One?

No tax refund this year? JetBlue feels your pain. If you owe the IRS money for 2016, you could win one of 1,000 free JetBlue flights.

Enter the JetBlue “Tax Return Return Flight” sweepstakes by April 25, 2017, for a chance to win one of 1,000 one-way flight certificates, each good for travel anywhere within JetBlue’s route network. Certificates must be redeemed for travel between May 1 and June 15.

To enter, provide the requested contact information (name, email, etc.) on the sweepstakes landing page and press “Submit.” Done! Time required to participate: less than 30 seconds.

The Fine Print

  • Sweepstakes is open to legal residents of the 48 contiguous United States, including the District of Columbia, who are at least 18 years old at the time of entry, and who “represent that they are not eligible for a refund on their 2016 Federal income tax return.” (JetBlue makes it clear it won’t check participants’ tax status, so this requirement can be safely ignored.)
  • Limit: one entry per person per day.
  • Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of each flight certificate: $150.

Somebody has to win one of these trips, right? Might as well be you.
