For those who love to travel, the chance to win a year's worth of free, unlimited flights from JetBlue Airways is perhaps an even greater reward than winning cold hard cash. There's a catch, though. As The Hill reports, anyone who enters JetBlue's ongoing "All You Can Jet" sweepstakes will have to delete every photo from their Instagram profile first.

That's right: Every selfie, #latergram, and picturesque plate of food must be purged, per JetBlue's official rules. In addition, entrants are asked to use a photo tool on JetBlue's website to create an image with the following overlay text: "All you can [insert word of your choice here]." For example, other entries say things like "All you can relax," "All you can explore," and "All you can ski." To finish entering, upload the photo to Instagram, and be sure to tag @JetBlue and use the hashtag #allyoucanjetsweepstakes. (Also, keep in mind that your Instagram page must be public, not private.)

Posing what is perhaps an even greater challenge, entrants must also refrain from posting other photos to Instagram until the sweepstakes ends at midnight on March 9. (However, entries must be submitted by 9 a.m. on March 8.) Only one entry per person is allowed, and the contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Puerto Rico who are 18 or older.

At the end of the contest period, three grand prize winners will be selected randomly. Each winner will receive free air travel for themselves and a companion—a deal worth roughly $20,000. If you're fine with wiping your Instagram clean, third-party apps like InstaClean and Cleaner for IG let you delete photos en masse. And if you don't want to lose your images, TechJunkie has a post explaining how to download Instagram photos.

This All-in-One Storage Solution Can Be Used at Home or Carried on the Go

Whether you're looking for a durable storage solution for your garage or a roomy pack for a long camping trip, the collapsible RUX carrier can help keep your stuff safe and secure without taking up much room in your closet when you're done. And until December 10, you can support the project on Indiegogo.

The main idea of the RUX is to serve multiple purposes at once. You can carry it around like a backpack or duffle bag during a weekend trip outdoors, or you can use it as a stationary storage bin for your car or home. Despite being strong enough to hold your bulkiest gear, it only weighs around four pounds and is designed to be collapsible, so you can fold it up and slip it away afterwards. (Unfolded, the RUX comes in at 15.7 by 19.5 by 13.8 inches.)

And if you're looking to use it during more serious outdoor adventures, you can rest assured that its weatherproof construction will keep your stuff dry in the rain. There's even a window that allows you to double-check that your items are safe and sound.

The RUX was created with sustainability and longevity in mind. Not only does the RUX have a lifetime warranty, but each component can also come off and be replaced easily so you can continue using the product no matter the problem. RUX is a member of 1% For The Planet, which is a group that gives back 1 percent of sales to environmental causes, even if they are not profitable.

There is still time to back the RUX campaign and reap the rewards. If you back $196, you’ll get your first RUX along with it. However, if you back $265, you’ll get one RUX, two divider totes, an EDC pouch, and two utility straps. If you back $449, you’ll get all the same things from the second level along with an extra RUX. If you want to back $515 or $725, you’ll get double or triple everything, respectively, from the second level.

The RUX campaign ends on December 10, so there is still time to back this product through Indiegogo. Shipments of RUX will hopefully start by June 2021.
