It’s enough to turn you into a Jets fan. Or a football fan. Or a sports fan in general.
Or, really, it’s enough to make you grab your credit card and fly JetBlue next month, which is the whole point of this interesting deal we found: If you use your MasterCard by the end of today (November 2) to book a December flight on JetBlue.com out of the NYC area, you’ll get a full refund of the fare after Feb. 6 — but, of course, there’s a catch.
The New York Jets have to win Super Bowl XLV, which takes place that day in Dallas.
Intriguing? Yes. Likely you’ll cash in? Questionable, though the odds are actually with you on this one. According to VegasInsider.com, which keeps tabs on such things, the odds of the Jets winning the whole enchilada are 8 to 1; they trail only the Baltimore Ravens (7/1) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (5/1) at this point in the season.
Recall that back in August, Jets coach Rex Ryan signed a guarantee that his team would win the Super Bowl. Let’s hope for fliers’ sake, his word is good.
