Lose Your Job, Get a Refund on JetBlue
Racking up the corporate karma points, JetBlue announced today that any ticket holder who loses his or her job on or after February 17 can receive a full refund for any ticket purchases made between February 1, 2009 and June 1, 2009. To apply, ticket holders must download the appropriate documents from The JetBlue Promise program, complete and notarize them, and return via certified mail and fax.
There is one item to note. While JetBlue says that it will automatically cancel your flight upon receipt of your notice, they may ding you a $100 cancellation fee if they determine that your job loss does not qualify. Remember, job loss must be involuntary, so don't bother trying to get yourself fired in hopes of getting off the hook of paying for that Cancun trip. Of course, these days, who would want to be fired?
