Would You Ditch Your Smartphone For a Year For $100,000?
December 14, 2018

Do you spend mindless hours scrolling on your social media feeds when you know you could be doing something more productive? If you want to break your smartphone addiction, there is a company that wants to help you.

Vitaminwater is willing to pay one lucky person $100,000 if they can make it an entire year without their smartphone. They’re calling it ‘Scroll-Free For a Year.’

If the person only lasts six months, they will get $10,000.

Whoever is selected for the competition gets a “call-only” phone and can still use a laptop or desktop. However, using someone else’s smartphone is a no-no.


A lie detector test will be administered as part of the contest. Contest submissions are currently open and will end on January 8th. You can enter four times via Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags #nophoneforayear and #contest in the post.

Could you last a year without your smartphone?
