Get Paid $1,000 to Take a Digital Detox Vacation in Joshua Tree


Most of us are pretty addicted to our phones, email, social media, and always being connected. Studies show that the average American spends more than 11 hours per day connected to some kind of media. Who couldn’t use a little unplugging? is giving away a two-night digital detox in one of the most magical and uniquely beautiful locations, Joshua Tree. In fact, it might be even more of a challenge to put down your phone because you’re going to want to Instagram all of the stunning scenery!

Satellite Internet, the host of the challenge, shares: “Instead of hunching over your tech devices all day, you can explore nearby hiking trails, take a dip in the pool, read a book, meditate, relax in the hammock, and watch the stars.”

The lucky winner of the experience will be asked to put down their devices and social media for two nights while staying at a remote Airbnb. He or she will receive up to $1,000 in transportation and food to enjoy their weekend off the grid. After swearing off technology for two whole days, you’ll be provided with the Satellite Internet connection at the Airbnb to share your experience on the third night.
