Love ‘Friends’?: Superfans Can Get Paid $1,000 to Binge-Watch the Series
For all the Friends fans out there, envision yourself smackdab in the middle of the episode titled, “The One Where Money Resides in Watching TV.” You may be able to earn a few bucks from your couch.
Though quarantine measures are starting to shift, people have become more accustomed to binge-watching shows during the past year. Once Friends left Netflix and jumped to HBO Max, it quickly shot to the No. 1 spot on the streamer’s viewership charts.
The love for Ross, Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Joey, and Chandler will never die. With that in mind, if you are a Friends expert or an aspiring superfan, there’s an opportunity to earn some cash for simply flipping on your TV and watching the series.
What’s the gist of the ‘Friends’ gig?
With so much excitement in the air for the Friends reunion that’s due to film in March 2021, now is a prime time to participate in any fan-centric campaign for the show. It’s time to revisit the ’90s in the name of receiving some income through a short-term job opening with Best Value Schools.
The company is seeking five lucky applicants to watch the first five seasons of Friends, and those who are selected will earn $1,000 and some central perks.
