The tax man taketh, and JetBlue giveth away.
With the April 18th deadline for submitting taxes looming like a dark cloud, JetBlue is hoping to brighten up a few lives by giving away 1,000 free one-way flights to taxpayers who owe money on their returns as part of its Tax Return Return Flight giveaway. Sound like another broken Trump promise in the making? Fear not, the giveaway is most certainly real.
Simply visit the site, enter your information, and you’re all set. You can enter once a day from now until April 25. Entrants must vouch that they are indeed not eligible to receive a refund on their 2016 taxes, however, JetBlue will not “and is under no obligation,” to determine prove the authenticity of your claim. The airline is working on scout’s honor!
JetBlue will then randomly select 66 winners on each of the first 14 days of the promotion. It will then choose 76 winners on the final day (April 25, 2017) of the giveaway. Winners will be contacted via email and will receive a certificate for one free one-way flight anywhere in the contiguous United States and Alaska (sorry Hawaii!) that must be used between May 1 and June 15, 2017.
So if you haven’t done your taxes yet, get moving and good luck!
