With a 1 in 292.2 million chance of winning Monday night’s historic Powerball jackpot, the sting of rejection shouldn’t be too severe for those who bought tickets and didn’t win. Everyone likes to win, and JCPenney is giving 20,000 Powerball players the chance to get a $20 off $20 coupon to use on anything in-store and online — and in conjunction with all other deals, including Black Friday deals already started — if they still have a non-winning ticket handy.
