Say what?  Get PAID to shop?  Yes.  All you need to do is shop local, and document your experience while doing this at 3-5 local businesses.

What do you need to do to get this wonderful sounding gig?  You need to apply and send in a video of why you think you'd be the best choice for this job. said the chosen applicant will be required to "skip corporate America when purchasing this year's presents" and instead shop at 3-5 local businesses and document the process with photos and logs of metrics including cost, convenience and customer service.  

Applicants are being asked to record a video explaining why they would be the ideal candidate for the position.

Seems easy enough, doesn't it?  And there seems to be a pretty good reason for doing this too.

"We know small businesses are core to our nation's economy and its communities," the posting states. "And what better way to support small businesses than to make local businesses your first stop for holiday shopping?"

Try it... you could MAKE money instead of spending it this holiday season.
