The catch? You’ve got to finish 24 Christmas Hallmark movies in 12 days…
If you’re reading this article you’re probably doing one of two things: cringing at the thought of having a Hallmark movie marathon or laughing out loud because you were already planning on binging Hallmark movies for pleasure this Christmas.
A tech company called Century Link wants to pay someone $1000 to binge 24 holiday movies from the Hallmark catalog in just short of two weeks. As easy as it sounds, there are few things you’ll have to qualify for a chance at that wad of cash – for starters, you have to love Christmas!
Besides being a US resident over the age of 18 and being capable of maneuvering your way through social media for documentation purposes, there isn’t much to it. To apply to this dream job, you’ll have to complete a short application explaining why you deserve to get paid to watch movies on the couch with your fuzzy socks on and hot cocoa in hand. To truly show your Christmas spirit, the company says you can include a 2 to 3-minute video, though it’s not required.
The contest closes for submission on December 6 at 4 pm PST and a winner will be selected five days later on the 11th. If chosen, you’ll be set up with the ultimate guilty pleasure pack complete with a subscription to Hallmark’s streaming service, a packet of hot cocoa, Christmas cookies, string lights, a mini-tree, and a ton of Hallmark swag.
