How can you get paid to watch the 'Fast and Furious' movies?

The website FinanceBuzz is offering the opportunity to just one movie fan to get paid for binge-watching the entire Fast & Furious series of movies. Calling the job title "Fast & Furious Claims Adjuster," the site will pay that person $1,000 to watch all 10 movies over a two-week period. Sounds like a fun way to make extra money? Here's how it works.

In addition to the $1,000 payoff for over 20 hours of movie-viewing, FinanceBuzz will pay another $100, which it says is to cover the cost of streaming fees required in order to view the first nine films, any snacks consumed during the process, along with movie tickets to see the newest film.

You'll need to pay attention during the ten 'The Fast and the Furious' movies.

Why is this site paying someone to watch all 10 movies?

FinanceBuzz is a financial education website that offers explanations and guidance on all things financial. The site says in its announcement about the Fast & Furious binge-watching experience that since they help readers save money on big expenses, they wondered how much the damage caused in the numerous car crashes would impact someone's car insurance rates.

Therefore, the site wants to hire someone to watch the movies and take inventory of all the car accidents. The site said, "During each movie, we’ll ask you to note any car accidents that result in damage, including counting the number of accidents, extent of the damages, and what cars are involved."

Since the company wants not only a list of each accident but details about the damages to each vehicle, it's safe to assume that people with a decent knowledge of cars will have an advantage in snagging this role. The person selected will also have to be focused during each movie in order to take those detailed notes.

Here's how to apply for the 'Fast & Furious' binge watching gig.

If you're interested in this unique money-making opportunity, be sure that you fit the criteria. You must be based in the U.S., at least 18 years old, and have the ability to stream or rent the first nine movies between May 26 and June 9. The chosen candidate also needs to be able to go and see Fast X in a movie theater during that period.

Apply online at this website by May 19, 2023. The application is very simple, but it does ask you why you'd be the "perfect person for this role," so make your answer good. The winner of this chance to make extra income will be notified within one week (by May 26). After providing your inventory of the accidents, FinanceBuzz will use your notes in an upcoming article.

Where else can you get paid for watching movies?

Although there aren't currently any other films looking for this type of movie-watcher, there are a few ways you might earn a little extra money by watching videos. Sites like Swagbucks and Earnably offer small payments for tasks like watching videos and completing surveys. Just beware that the sites don't pay much, so you shouldn't plan on quitting your day job for them.

The Fast & Furious binge-watching gig pays a pretty decent rate, if you think only of the run time of the 10 movies and the $1,000 payment. But remember you'll need to know a lot about cars — or do some research — to give accurate information about the car accidents and damages. That could add a lot of time onto the job.
