Mystery Shopping

If you are interested in mystery shopping, you’ve come to the right place!

Mystery shoppers get paid for providing valuable customer service feedback to businesses. We visit stores, restaurants, banks, salons, movie theaters, hotels and other businesses as “undercover customers.” Our job is to act like regular customers while gathering information about the location’s cleanliness, the service provided by the staff and other issues for the business owner.

Mystery shopping is a legitimate way to make money; however, if you received a large check and were told to wire money somewhere, don’t do anything until you read about mystery shopping scams at my blog.

Mystery shopping is not a “get-rich-quick” scheme and it’s not money for nothing. It is a great way to make extra money working part-time or even spare-time. The flexibility of mystery shopping allows you to fit assignments into your schedule whether you are employed, self-employed, retired, a student or an at-home Mom.

Mystery shoppers may be male or female. We come from all age groups and all walks of life. What we have in common is that we all have good communication skills, we care about customer service, and we enjoy helping businesses improve while making money in our spare time.

Here are some great resources to help you get started in mystery shopping, or take your shopping career to the next level.
