Now that I’ve learned that a) you can make some extra money mystery shopping and b) that is hard work, it’s under control now. I’ve got some ideas for some apps that would help shoppers. Just got to get the technology skills back up.
I haven’t taken a restaurant shop – though there are some clients I’m still open to. Close, pay well and healthy food. No fast food.
I have a check coming from an MSC from March shops yet, and I’m not doing any work for them until I get it. Seriously, you expect me to work in March and haven’t paid me by May 20th? They owe me almost $100 for 5 shops. They are local and pay well. I can usually pick up between $10-$15 a shop from them and those are local shops. Mostly healthy food shops. They are the only MSC that owes me from March. In fact, they are the only mystery shop that hasn’t paid me since I started in February. I currently have an email out about that.
Well, I lied a bit about that getting paid for everything I did. I mystery shopped off an MSC’s app, didn’t save the receipt, and their system blurred the receipt. I had them take me off their system. They had dental shops and ice cream shops in the area. No. I didn’t lose much, I was already at that location and it was good ice cream.
After my first week of May, I’ve limited myself to web and phone shops, at home shops, and 10 miles radius. It also has to be an interesting shop. Of course, my idea of interesting is different than most. Yesterday I peed in a cup for $15.00. It was across the street from my gym.
I did sign up for some grocery store shops that are a bit further, but that company pays quick and I haven’t done their grocery store shops yet. I need to start getting on their local shops, they have a ton of those. The first one I did was a fail, but I still got $5.00 for it, the client I was shopping accepted a phone call but didn’t make an appointment.
So I did over $900 in April and am at $340 in May so far. Pays for some of the dog bills.
