You've heard the hype.
And, yes, it's true... You can get
paid to shop!
Well, the catch is that it might
not be you, personally. But, people are doing it and they
are getting paid for it. There are some companies you
could probably find on the Internet yourself. For example:
Jack in the Box
If you have a Jack in the Box restaurant
near you, you could visit their site at:
They will give you free food or maybe even cash in exchange
for your opinion -depending on their promotion at the
time. These you might find on your own, but the services
have a large listing of research companies that do not
necessarily advertise online.
Those are the ones that are best because there is less
competition for the spots and they offer to pay you for
your opinion in a larger variety of stores or restaurants.
Our Jack in the Box example is considered a "Paid
to Eat" listing, but the "get paid to shop"
and "get paid to eat" companies are typically

Paid to Shop - Advice
- Do not make the mistake of applying
to every "mystery shopper" job out there right
away. Instead, look through the listings and apply to
the top 3 that you think you are a fit for. Then, try
to have in mind what you can offer. If they don't accept
you; go to the next best 3 and try to revamp your presentation.
- After much feedback from our
valuable visitors, we no longer recommend signing up
with paid surveys companies that have mystery shopping
databases --unless you really want to do BOTH.
Companies like SurveyScout are great for paid surveys,
but are not the best for helping you get started with
mystery shopping apparently.
So we searched online, tried several
services, and read several ebooks on the subject and on
how to get started. We have found an excellent service
that even taught us a few new tricks!
Visit the shadow shopper site through
the link below. They will help you get started and even
help match you up with local gigs in your area that are
a match! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did and have
FUN becoming a Secret Shopper!!
