According to the RetailMeNot job posting, the Shopping Specialist will have a $5,000 budget to shop with over one week. If you have eyes for an outrageously expensive new purse or one big-ticket item, hold on for just a moment. The job requires you to shop at least five online and in-store retailers, testing the RetailMeNot app and website.

Along with money to spend on clothes, shoes or whatever else you want (selected from RetailMeNot), you’ll also get up to $50 per day to spend on dining at restaurants on the RetailMeNot app. After shopping/dining, the Specialist will need to note the effectiveness of the app or website’s coupons, promo codes and cash back offers.

While there’s no per hour compensation listed, you do get to keep all $5,000 of your purchases. So buy wisely!

To apply for this dream job send a short 60-second or less video clip to RetailMeNot, telling your hopefully future employer about your shopping habits, how you find the best online deals and why you’re the right person for the position. Email the video, along with a 100-word description of why you’re the candidate of choice, your deets and social media handles to Visit the job posting on RetailMeNot for more information on the job or application process.
