With the fourth of July falling on a Wednesday, it's hard to take the entire week off. There is a contest that will pay you to take a five day weekend. Here's how. Smirnoff Vodka feels that Wednesday isn't enough time to celebrate America's independence, so they are offering to pay one hundred people to take the two days off after.

According to delish.com, Smirnoff just launched a special Red White and Berry Ice drink in time for the holiday. In celebration, they will be holding a contest to pay a hundred people to take off July 5th and 6th. It's pretty easy too. Starting Sunday (July 1st), you can enter by commenting on Smirnoff's Facebook, Twitter or Instagram contest post about where you would rather be than at work. Winners will be selected at random and they will get $500. The only requirement is that you have to be over 21.

You still may have to get those days off through your employer, but the cash will ease the asking. Get more details HERE.
