Website offers $3,000 for ‘Sleeping Beauty’ to test out mattresses

A mattress reviewing platform said it is seeking “a real-life Sleeping Beauty” to get paid $3,000 to test out mattresses. SleepJunkie.com said the chosen candidate “will be paid to sleep on the job” by trying three top-rated mattresses in a two-month period and writing detailed reviews of each experience. The “Sleeping Beauty” will be paid $3,000 for the mattress testing job, as well as being allowed to keep the mattress of their choice at the end of their duties.

“To be the right fit for the role you will need to be a self-starter, available to work immediately and independently, have clear writing skills, good evaluation skills and be exceptionally good at sleeping,” the website said. The posting does reveal one catch to the deal: “Our Sleeping Beauty will also have to be able to sleep alone to ensure an undisturbed night’s sleep.” Applications are being accepted on the website.
