A Mystery Shopping Trip

Monday, August 24, 2009

If you want to make a little bit of extra money on the side, as well as get some freebies at the same time, you may wish to try mystery/secret shopping.As well as shops I do in town, we ventured out for a few jobs I had in another town- an hour away. It was worth the drive. For one job,( and I can't mention which places I visited), I was given a 10 piece chicken supper with the works plus paid $10. For another job we visited a grocery store-I got to evaluate a few departments, shop for $15 worth of whatever food I wished, and paid a $20 shopper fee.The biggest shop was for a phone company- because I had to travel out of town and they needed someone to vist here, I was given $25 for the shop plus .36 a km for gas expenses- and I travelled a total of 230 kms. It was a good day.

The only thing I don't like about mystery shopping is that you will initially have to outlay your own money for the shops where you are required to pick something up. But you will be reimbursed within 2 weeks- 1 month. Usually by direct deposit, pay pal or cheque.

I know for us it's a real treat to have someone else foot the bill in exchange for my comments.
