Get Paid $10K To Ditch Your Phone For A Month

A digital detox worth doing.

While your phone is a seemingly essential part of your everyday life, everyone could stand to be a little less connected to tech. And although the incentive of feeling better mentally might be enough of a reward to tempt some, we’d like to earn some money during the process.

Thankfully, yogurt brand Siggi’s is ready to pay 10 lucky people a hefty amount of money to ditch their smartphones for an entire month. Yes, you read that right—an entire month. Think strong enough to take on the challenge? Find out how you can enter to go on the ultimate digital detox (and make $10K during the process).

What You’ll Win

If you’re one of the 10 people selected to participate, Siggi’s will supply you with the following:

  • $10,000
  • Smartphone lockbox
  • Flip phone
  • 1 month pre-paid SIM card
  • 3 months’ worth of Siggi’s yogurt

You won’t be completely out of the loop since you’ll still have a flip phone, but you’ll want to brush up on your T9 if you’re seriously about applying. And if you’re too old to understand that reference, I’m just going to crumble into dust right now.

Of course, you’ll still have access to your laptop and any other tech you own, but your smartphone will be on a sabbatical. Not the easiest challenge.

How To Enter

Think you can do without your phone for a whole month? Then head over to the Siggi’s website to send in your application. You’ll need to send in a 100-500 word essay explaining why you need a digital detox and why it would have a positive impact on you. Be sure to put your best effort forward to have the highest chance of getting chosen for the detox!
