When the holiday season rolls around, all you probably want to do is lay on the couch all day and binge-watch holiday classics. The season can really take a toll on you, after all. The good news is you can actually get a job doing your favorite holiday pastime by getting paid to binge-watch Christmas movies to your heart's content.
SimpleTexting is a Miami-based company that is paying one lucky applicant $1,000 (yes, an actual $1,000) to watch 12 holiday films over the course of a week and take notes about them.
It's an actual job, meaning that you'll have to identify character trends and track specific details about the movies you watch. Let's be honest, though, if you get to take those notes while you sit on the couch and watch movies all day, you really can't complain.
Some of the movies you'll be required to view are Home Alone, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Elf, The Polar Express, and Love Actually, but there are several more that you're sure to love. You were probably going to watch them this year anyway, so why not get paid for it?
Oh, and don't worry about paying for the movies if you don't already have them. SimpleTexting will purchase them for you, so you won't have to spend any of your own cash before you even get paid.
All you have to do is apply for the job on the SimpleTexting website and convince them why you're the right person for this job.
For once, being lazy and just wanting to chill are marketable skills you can use to your advantage. Make sure you apply by 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 11.
