Yesterday it was reported that there’s a company paying $1k to someone willing to watch classic summer movies, and today there’s an opportunity to get paid to taste test Trader Joe’s fall products.

I have to say that this kinda gig is right up my alley as a) I’m a TJ’s junkie and b) give me pumpkin everything! Fall is my jam when it comes to the leaves changing (not so much here in FL), haunted houses, pumpkin patches and yes, pumpkin flavored everything. Some may argue that August is too early to start thinking about it, but as soon as I saw that pumpkin coffee hit the shelves, it was mine and I’ve been enjoying a hot cup every morning for a few weeks now.

FinanceBuzz is hiring a “pumpkin spice pundit” to taste test various Trader Joe’s fall items like pumpkin ravioli, samosas and waffles, drinks like apple cider and pumpkin-spiced ginger brew and desserts like cinnamon rolls and apple cider donuts. What’s not to love?! and to get paid $1k to do it? SIGN ME UP!!

How do I get to taste the Trader Joe’s pumpkin goodness?

You need to be at least 18 and live in the U.S. and live near a Trader Joe’s If you don’t know there’s two in SWFL, one in Naples and another in Fort Myers. As the tester of these items, you’ll have to write out your impressions of each and rate them to show which are the best, which you should budget for, and which items to skip. And not only can you get paid $1,000, but they’ll also give you $500 TJ’s gift card to buy everything!
