Binge-watch Hallmark Christmas movies for $1,000: It's not too good to be true

  • Updated
Hallmark Christmas Movies

Stop us if you recognize this story: It’s gorgeously snowy, set in a perfectly quaint small town (or a big city made to look like a perfectly quaint small town), it’s Christmastime, and two very attractive, mostly available people meet, navigate obstacles, fall in love and (we think) live happily ever after.

Yes, you’re right: It’s the plot of a Hallmark holiday movie, or, more accurately, EVERY Hallmark holiday movie.

If this appeals to you (and why wouldn’t it?), a Louisiana technology company has a job for you.

CenturyLinkQuote will pay one winner $1,000 to watch 24 Hallmark Christmas movies over 12 December days. The winner will have to use social media to share his or her findings, and document the Hallmark marathon.

Hallmark is releasing 40 new movies this holiday season.

The winner will also get a package of items to help the binge-watching efforts: Streaming service subscription, a packet of hot cocoa, a box of Christmas cookies, a string of lights, a mini Christmas tree and assorted Hallmark swag.

Applications are open now through Dec. 6; the job (such as it is!) must be completed by Christmas Day.

Your mileage may vary on survival thrillers at the moment (who needs more stress?), but this manages to be the pleasant kind of stranded-on-a-mountain movie. Mostly because of the chemistry between Idris Elba and Kate Winslet, and also, there's a very good dog and not too much peril (just enough). $3.99 rental on Amazon, YouTube or Redbox.
