Here's a way to advertise your product by making news. Yeah, we're suckers, but you should know, it possibly could be worth it. Jet Blue has announced that they're auctioning off flights on eBay with prices starting at 5-cents. Their graphic promises trips from Burbank, but their Southern California eBay page is only displaying Long Beach trips so far with seven trips total to Washington D.C., Las Vegas and Salt Lake City.

Only 300 roundtrip ticket packages are being auctioned off from cities across the country, according to the Associated Press. Some are regular tickets, a handful are vacation packages and four are mystery vacations, two of which require a passport. Good luck to anyone trying.
