BOSTON (CBS) — Are you worried about buying that new Darrelle Revis Patriots jersey?
There is a chance that Revis Island will only be in New England for one season, so it’s a little risky to drop anywhere from $150-$250 for a Patriots jersey with his name on the back of it, right?
Have no fear, as the team has a new “Jersey Guarantee” should fans buy a jersey and that player leaves town within a year.
The Patriots announced Thursday that they are now offering a jersey rebate if a fan buys a jersey of a player who is no longer under under contract within a year of their purchase.
From the Patriots’ website:
In the event the player is no longer under contract (for example, is released, traded, retires, signs elsewhere) within one year of the jersey purchase, the customer can purchase a new jersey as described below at a 25% discount with proof of purchase. If the player is still under contract with the Patriots upon expiration of the one-year period, the Guarantee expires.
Fans have two months to use the discount, and they can keep the original jersey.
Customers can only redeem their Guarantee for 25% off the purchase of one, full-price jersey of the same type (Adult or Youth) of equivalent value to the jersey they originally purchased. Fans can redeem the discount with the original receipt through the Patriots ProShop at Gillette Stadium, the Patriots ProShop Collection and PatriotsProShop.com.
Last summer, the team offered a free jersey exchange for any No. 81 Aaron Hernandez jerseys following his arrest for murder. Over 1,200 jerseys were exchanged.
