There’s no way diehard Game of Thrones fans would voluntarily miss the final season the most binge-worthy, dragon-filled drama on television—unless of course some serious cash was on the line. 

A 2018 study revealed that more than three quarters of American G.O.T. fans would skip the highly-anticipated last season of Game of Thrones entirely for $1,000, according to a data Acorns published in their annual Money Matters Report. 

The micro-investing app company surveyed 3,000 Americans aged 18-44—about half male, half female—to find out what they’d be willing to do for an extra grand. 

When asked if they would skip season 8 of HBO’s acclaimed fantasy epic, 76 percent responded, “Yes.”

Participants were much less likely to forego other luxuries. Only 41 said they would go for a year without coffee, and a mere 38 percent were willing to stay offline for one week.

Fortunately, as this entire study is based on an offer that will never be extended to fans, we won’t have to make this fateful decision.
