The holidays can be hectic, especially if you’re coordinating visits with friends and family, decking the halls, and braving the cold in search of the perfect presents. And to be honest, all these festivities can take a hard hit on our budgets! That’s why is hiring 5 “elves” to do their holiday shopping online this year – and they’ll be given $500 to tackle their gift-giving needs.

(That’s 5x as nice, for those of you keeping tally on the naughty/nice list)

Here are the holly-jolly job specifics if you’d like to stuff your stocking with $500 this holiday season:

What: We’re looking for 5 people who are willing to buy gifts online this holiday season! What’s the job you ask? You’ll be reading online reviews before purchasing your gifts, and then telling us how it goes! (Snow joke, that’s it!)

When: Applications are open from November 22, 2019, until 11:59 PM MST December 5, 2019.

We’ll be booting up the North Pole’s random number generator thing-a-ma-bob (Courtesy of the reindeer research division) and announcing the 5 elves who landed the gig on December 6, 2019.

Where: If “holiday cheer” is your middle name, you can apply here!

Who: is a community of home and tech experts who help consumers choose the best products for their lifestyle in categories such as streaming, internet, TV, and home security.

Why: We want to gain insight as to how consumers use online reviews to inform their purchase decisions, does it make an impact on which gifts they choose to buy?
