Thank you so much for all of the interest and participation in our Dream Job.

Here are our selected winners for the Holiday Shopping Online Dream Job:

  • Kiersten Bloesser
  • Katrina Brown
  • Heavenly Miranda
  • Nick Anderson
  • Stephon Thornton

Put on your coziest flannel PJs and slippers—we’re shopping online!

Are you dreading throwing elbows just to get your hands on that Baby Shark puppet? Or does your body refuse to get up at the crack of dawn this Black Friday just to nab a parking spot at Walmart?

We feel you. That’s why we’re giving five people $500 to do all their holiday shopping online. As if you needed an excuse to stay inside with a cup of hot cocoa, right?

You may be asking what’s in it for us. Great question!

We’ve run into a sort of . . . problem here at Reviews.org. You see, we’re fresh out of holiday elves. (Long story short, Craig refused to put on the elf hat and ears again this year. You could say our resident elf has been put on the shelf.)

So we need a few good people to help us out by doing all their holiday shopping online. Our elflings need to read reviews to decide which products they want to buy and gift, then tell us how their shopping spree and review reading went.

Seriously, that’s it. You get $500 just for sharing how naughty or nice your online shopping experience was. And you won’t even need to wear any striped leggings, floppy shoes, or funny hats. (Unless you want to, of course.)

Who should submit their letter to our team of Official Elf Recruiters?

Are you a budget shopper and proud? Love gifting unique and thoughtful items? Or maybe you’ve already sworn off anything but online holiday shopping?

Whatever the case, as long as you’re willing to read user reviews to find the perfect nifty-gifties, and then tell us about your shopping experience, we want you.

Okay, okay. Our Department of Festivities reminded us that there are a few more qualities our newest elves must have, including these:

  • Must be age 18 or older
  • Must be a resident of the United States
  • No Grinches allowed
