If you’ve been putting off your taxes until the very last minute, here’s one reason you might want to stop procrastinating. JetBlue is giving away 1,000 one-way flights to people who owe money to Uncle Sam.
To enter the airline’s “Tax Return Return Flight” sweepstakes, simply fill out an online form with your name, email, birth date and check a box that promises you owe money to the IRS. The airline will select 66 winners every day for the first fourteen days of the campaign and 76 winners on the final day, April 25, 2017.
The non-winning entries for every day will be rolled over into subsequent drawings, but you can also enter once per day through April 25.
To be eligible you must be at least 18 years old and a resident of the 48 contiguous United States, DC or Alaska. And, of course, you must owe money on your taxes. If you don’t owe money, there’s a separate link that congratulates you and encourages to treat yourself to a JetBlue Vacation.
And while we would never advocate cheating, on your taxes or to win a contest, the official rules state that the “Sponsor [JetBlue] will not, and is under no obligation, to determine the veracity of representations made by entrants.”

All winners will be notified by email and will receive an electronic voucher good for one-way travel anywhere JetBlue flies within the United States. The estimated approximate retail value (ARV) of each prize is $150.
