I am wondering if anyone does mystery shopping? Who do you go through and is it worth it? Looking to do it on the side (I do work nearly full time too).

  • I have sometimes gotten emails inviting me to sign up, but I’m too suss to actually sign up. You need to be do careful with computer stuff

  • I have registered myself but haven’t done any so far because the payment is too low, it is not worth the work plus the drive to get just few $.

  • A friend of mine works in a supermarket and basically she just sees them comparing prices and looking at the customer service side of things . She always says it doesn’t look like a hard job , but I don’t know how many shops they have to visit so maybe ask about that part .


    • That means they are recording the oppositions prices and undercutting? Does the person who seen this happening realise jobs could be in jeopardy. She is supposed to be a loyal employee to the supermarket she works for. Sometimes salespeople take photos of their display done for special promotion for proof.

  • I’ve found it’s not really worth it if you’re after the money. It’s a bit of fun sometimes, depending on what you’re doing, but you rarely earn much.

  • I’ve heard too many horror stories about mystery shoppers not getting paid, or having to travel miles out of their way. I’d rather do a few surveys on-line, at times of the day/night that suits me. The points soon add up, and you can get gift cards every few weeks that help to stretch the shopping dollar.


    • I keep meaning to look into doing surveys.

    • The checklists can be pretty in depth. The pay isn’t too crash hot either.

  • I have never been offered but would love to be a mystery shopper

  • I have been told it is not worth it as well, by the time you pay for travel you don’t really have much left.

  • I think doing surveys online would be more of a benefit as with mystery shopping the rewards aren’t as big and as frequent either.
