For some people, this would be a dream come true. For others…maybe not so much.
Internet service provider CenturyLink is offering to pay one lucky person $1,000 to binge-watch 24 Hallmark Christmas movies in 12 days. What a deal!
“‘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. If you think that’s you, we’ll give you $1,000 to critique a lineup of festive guilty pleasures.”
The site also says:
“You know how to work the Gram, Twitter, or Facebook. We want someone who’s willing to document their Hallmark marathon with their followers.
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.”
Here’s what you have to do to win: every time you watch one of the films, get on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, include the hashtags #CountdowntoChristmas and #HallmarkDreamJob in every post. Also, you have to watch all 24 films within 12 days by December 25, 2019.
And you have to fill out the application on this website.
If you win, you’ll get that cold, hard $1,000 and a Hallmark binge-watching package that includes a subscription to a streaming service, hot cocoa (you’ll need that), Christmas cookies, a mini Christmas tree, some fairy lights, and all kinds of Hallmark swag.
Get going! Time’s a wasting!
The marketing gods approve of this scenario BIG TIME.
