- Who wouldn’t want to get paid to sit on a beach and sip a cool drink? That dream could be your reality if you enter a new contest from Hotels.com.
- The hotel booking website is looking for a “Retro Beach Motelier” who will get paid $15,000 to visit the company’s “10 best retro beach motels” across the U.S. this summer. The money includes a $10,000 travel stipend — the hotels are far-flung across the country, from Florida and Maine to Washington state and southern California — and a $5,000 “salary” to spend on whatever you like during your travels.
Hotels.com says it will also outfit the contest winner with sunscreen, umbrellas, vintage sunglasses, a cooler, a solar-powered AM/FM radio and a retro polaroid camera. The only requirement for the winner: Use that camera to document the trip “for future generations.”
