If I’m being entirely honest, I don’t really need an incentive to sit down in front of the TV and binge watch Hallmark Christmas movies. They’re cheesy, romantic, over-the-top, and absolutely amazing to watch at this time of year. However, you can actually get paid $1,000 to sit through 24 of Hallmark’s finest holiday films in 12 days, which is a pretty amazing perk.
- The “job” is being offered by Internet service provider CenturyLink. They’re looking for one lucky fan to park themselves on the couch and watch 24 Hallmark Christmas Movies in half the number of days. You’d only really need to watch two a day to get done in time, which seems like the easiest thing ever. I’ve been known to watch four a day some years!!
- You’ll need to be willing to critique them too. While Hallmark Christmas movies are generally flawless, the whole point of the position is for you to share your thoughts both good and bad as you watch them. “Tis the Season … to Get Paid to Watch Christmas Movies and it looks like all your Christmas wishes may just come true. We’re looking for a lover of all things Christmas, G-Rated romcoms, and too-close-to-home family dramas to watch 24 Hallmark Christmas movies in 12 days,” the listing reads. “If you think that’s you, we’ll give you $1,000 to critique a lineup of festive guilty pleasures.”
- Hopefully you know your way around social media. Your reviews won’t just be sent to CenturyLink, they’ll need to be posted across social media. That means you’ll need to be active on the likes of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. “We want someone who’s willing to document their Hallmark marathon with their followers,” the description continues. “We want you to have opinions—lots of them! Think the grumpy Grandpa turned jolly Santa was a little overdone? Felt like the plot was a bit half-baked? Be as honest as possible in your review.”
- To be honest, $1,000 would really come in handy around the holidays. Buying Christmas presents is always a big drain on the pockets, so having a handy grand around to pay for presents would be super helpful, you have to admit. This job couldn’t come around at a better time! You can apply for the dream job HERE.
