Here’s How To Get Paid To Live In The Mall Of America For 5 Days

Getting paid to live in The Mall of America sounds like a dream right?

You’d just hang out and window shop, maybe make a pit stop at Auntie Anne’s. Life would be grand. Luckily for you this isn’t some fantasy unfolding in a made-for-TV movie. If you play your cards right, this could actually be your life.

In celebration of its 25th birthday, The Mall of America has created a temporary position where they’ll pay one lucky writer to take up residence in the mall for five days. The scribe will then detail their experience from start to finish. If you’re chosen, you’ll receive a free hotel stay, plus $400 to buy all of the food court grub your heart desires.


Sound like the ideal life? Yep. Apply here.
