Well, that all depends on what you want. Do you want a job that you can do at home, check into something like a homebased business, or something like customer care representative. I have mystery shopped, not much call for it in my area, but in someplaces you can earn a good amount. Many things to do. Good luck to you.

About 15 years ago,I did mystery shopping for a company that worked for KMart.And they paid and it worked fine.I had to mail my report in.And they sent me back a check about twice a month. Then I had a baby and we moved also,my husband passed away and I am partially handicapped.I tried to find that company again and they apparently went out of business.I started doing some other mystery shopping for a company I found online.I did 3 shops and emailed the reports in as I was instructed.Then I did not receive my pay and I emailed them and was told that they did not receive my reports.So,I sent them back.Got a message that the still had not received them.So,I asked to snail mail them in and was told that was not possible.So I emailed them again from a different email account and they said they still didn't get them.So,I never got paid for all 3 shops! Time and gas.....wasted! One day,I received information in a snail mail that there was an opening in this companies marketing department as a mystery shopper.My first assignments were to do shops at 3 different locations.If I agreed to perform these tasks then they would send me a check ahead of time and I could wait until the check cleared to show this was for real.So,I did,the check cleared and I got the money and paid bills,did the tasks that required some of that money.I faxed the results back to them and they called me and said that my next assignment would come to me in the mail on Monday. The next day,the credit union called me and said that the check did not clear,which they had told me the day before that it had! I called them and told them what was happening and they acted shocked!So,I am having to pay back the credit union. Now,I did find another mystery shopper online that will pay,but they do not have very much different work.And only repay me for certain stuff.Like I get my hair cut and they will pay $20 of it,but it cost's $25.So,I get my haircut mostly paid for.The money showed up in my paypal account a month later.But,they only seem to have more of the same thing at different locations.I don't have a car to get to these locations and don't have a ton of hair to cut.

Right now, because I have to work at home (we have a toddler and childcare is expensive) I tutor during naps and after said toddler goes to bed. I also make small amounts of money online by writing articles (although I haven't done a lot of this lately because it's tiring) and writing reviews on reviewstream.com
