If you’re still crossing items off your Christmas shopping list this year, you may want to consider shopping at some local small businesses. Our local neighborhood shops and restaurants could use our support more than ever, and a new initiative from business.org could pay you $1,000 to spend at small businesses this holiday season.
$1,000 to shop at small businesses
Where your money goes matters. If you want to help small businesses get back on their feet this holiday season, you can choose to shop small – and business.org can help! They’re paying someone $1,000 to shop local for the holidays, and applying is super easy.
How to apply:
Simply fill out the short application RIGHT HERE. If you’re selected, you’ll be paid $1,000 to shop at no less than three small businesses, either online or in-store in accordance with your area’s COVID-19 safety guidelines. The chosen candidate will then report back to business.org with their experience with shopping small.
You’ll be asked questions about your experiences with small businesses’ customer service, price, and products compared to your experiences with impersonal big box stores.
From the description on business.org:
We’re looking for someone who’s willing to check items off their holiday shopping lists at small businesses, meaning locally owned businesses rather than corporate chains. Specifically, our candidate will need to shop at at least three small businesses, either online or in-store in accordance with your area’s COVID-19 safety guidelines. (Please note that third-party Amazon sellers don’t meet our criteria for shopping small.)
We’ll also ask our chosen candidate to report back to us on their experience with shopping small. For instance, we’ll ask for details on how your experiences with small businesses’ customer service, price, and products compared to your experiences with impersonal big box stores.
Time is running out!
Applications for this offer will close on November 30, 2020 at 5 pm MT and a winner will be notified via email no later than December 3, 2020.
From small-business Saturday onward, this holiday shopping season has plenty of opportunities for you to help out small businesses in your area whether you win the $1,000 or not!
