There are a wide variety of options available as a mystery shopper. I do this from time to time. I used to work for a company that paid pretty well for these shops, but now, I usually just take assignments as they come up. A mystery shopper forum can be a good resource for jobs.

It can be fun. Sometimes the restaurant ones are good as you get free food, I mean you pay for it first but are reimbursed.

Wow, never knew about this! I'm going to try this! Thank you for the introduction! I did get a $10 check for trying out peanuts and completing a survey in my email inbox recently though. Nice extra money!

I have never done mystery shopping, but it does sound like a good way to make some extra money.

I do several mystery shops each week. Yesterday I did 7. I enjoy it; there is such a variety of different jobs to do.

7??? No way! How did you manage that? Were they like field agent jobs from your smartphone?

@snowy22315 No, I took them off the job boards of the mystery shopping companies. 5 were the same job in 5 different locations from one company. The other two were from two other mystery shopping companies. I used the list on and signed up for pretty much every company on that list.

I would be hesitant about something like that...Check MSPA I think it is for legit companies.

I've thought about doing this but never actually got around to inquiring as to what it entails

depends on the job and the employer...you usually just fill out a questionaire about your experience.

Can anyone enlighten me about "mystery shopping"? Is this some kind of a shopping habit that is full of mysteries :D

It is going into a location pretending to be a customer. Once you have done that...you write a report and submit to the company who has hired you and wait to reimbursed.
