If you were thinking of binging on holiday movies this December, why not get paid for it? As part of a marketing gimmick, the website Reviews.org is looking to fill the role for “Chief Holiday Cheermeister,” which pays $2,500 and a year’s worth of streaming services in exchange for watching and reviewing 25 movies in 25 days.
How can you apply?
To be eligible you have to be over 18, have a streaming-compatible device, and be able to fill out a short survey after every film. Reviews.org has a recommended list of popular Christmas movies to choose from, but you would be able to pick your own selections, too.
Applications are open until 11:59 p.m. MT on December 4, with the winner announced on the company’s YouTube channel on December 7 (you can apply here).
If you’re the winning applicant, you’ll be given gift cards to cover a one-year subscription to the following streaming services:
- Amazon Prime
- HBO Max
- Apple TV+
- Hallmark Movies Now
The terms and conditions stipulate that no cash equivalent for the streaming package will be offered and the opportunity to participate in the “job” is not transferable.
What to consider before applying
As there are nearly 50 hours of Christmas-themed films to watch, be mindful of your natural inclination toward the holidays: Do you have the stamina to watch Jim Carrey in the bombastic How the Grinch Stole Christmas? Or what about nearly two weird hours spent in the uncanny valley of The Polar Express? Money isn’t everything—if reading the words “Chief Holiday Cheermeister” does nothing for your Scrooge-like demeanor, leave this job to those who can’t get enough holiday spirit.
