This year, a company will pay you $2,500 for you to watch 25 holiday movies in 25 days, but there are some things you need to be aware of to get the job.

The requirements

You must apply for the gig before December 2 on to scoop the cash.

You must also be 18 years of age and live in the United States.

My Christmas side hustle makes you up to $36,000 - it's warm and cozy
I make up to $17,000 from online side hustle on top of Amazon day job said they are specifically looking for someone who loves the holidays to watch 25 movies this holiday season as part of their ‘Chief of Cheer’ role.

You can choose 25 holiday movies of your choice within the 25 days, but you must record your thoughts during the process.

Another perk of the job includes that you’ll just happen to get a free streaming package with subscriptions to six services for a full year.

CableTV is letting their ‘Chief of Cheer’ watch movies from wherever is most comfortable, whether that’s with their family, while building a gingerbread house or even if you’re just laying on the couch in the middle of the day.

The company urges “anyone and everyone” to apply, as long as they embody the Christmas spirit.

The job is temporary, so once the holiday season ends, the position is over as well.

What the job entails

In addition to the $2,500 check, the person selected for the role will receive a year’s supply of free streaming for Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Amazon Prime, Apple TV+, HBO Max, and Hallmark Movies Now.

After the Chief of Cheer watches each movie, they must record their thoughts on the film and its holiday cheer.

You also need to review each streaming service and their general usability and selection of holiday films.

There’s no specific requirement for the films you choose to watch, beyond the fact that they must be holiday staples.

That includes favorites like A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Christmas Carol, It’s a Wonderful Life, as well as more modern additions like A Bad Mom’s Christmas, Elf, Holidate, The Polar Express and the Grinch.

How to score the job

Applications are open from now until 11:59pm on December 2, and the winning applicant will know by December 6 if they are crowned the “Chief of Cheer.”

In the application, you will essentially just describe why you are the right person for the job.

If selected, you have up to seven days to accept before the job goes to someone else.

Other side hustles

While this is likely one of the most enjoyable side hustles available for the holiday season, many Americans are finding other creative ways to grow their wallets amid high inflation.

One influencer has shown you can successfully bring in $7,000 a week from being a beauty brand affiliate marketer.

The best part about this gig is that it enables you to continuously try new beauty products for free, and all you have to do is garner sales from your own audience.

Flipping furniture is also another viable side hustle for many, including one man who was able to earn $8,000 a month just by buying and reselling couches.

For something even more low effort, Netflix sporadically hires “taggers” that are essentially paid to binge watch movies and TV shows all day, and the gig has a going rate of $45 an hour.

Remember, any extra cash from a side hustle needs to be reported to the IRS or you can be subject to fines come tax time.
