Vitaminwater will pay you $100K to ditch your smartphone for a year
ST. LOUIS – Do you think you could go without your smartphone for a whole day? How about a whole year?
Vitaminwater is willing to bet you can’t do it. The company unveiled a challenge for 2019 with an award of $100,000 to a person who can go without their smartphone for 365 days.
Vitaminwater will choose one participant who will trade their smartphone for a 2000s era calling-only phone. If the challenger makes it for six months, they get $10,000 and, if they make it for the full year, they win the $100,000.
The entry period starts at 8 a.m. ET on Tuesday, December 11 and ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. You can enter up to four times.
Vitaminwater didn’t go into detail about how they’ll monitor the contest but said lie detector tests will be involved.
