      Question Anyone with experience?

      Has anyone done this and had a good/bad experience out of it?

      It doesn't seem like too much money can be made. And unless it's food, you don't really get anything out of it, right?

      All the shopping purchases have to be returned - is this right?

      I am trying to figure out whether this is a good idea or not! Any help would be great.

      At one time in my life I did a mystery shopper for Domino's pizza. We had to buy the food and then fill in information and sent that in. We did get a couple coupons for discounts on the food purchases.

      Did they reimburse you for the pizza or did you have to pay out of pocket for it?

      It says that for shopping at retail places you can get about $5 to $25 per visit depending on the difficulty. But you sometimes have to buy things too and I am wondering whether those things are returned later or reimbursed.

      With the pizza we payed out of pocket for it. To me that was not really worth it.
      I have not done the mystery shopping at a store. Sorry.

      There is one company I do Publix shops for sometimes. They pay you $7 to do the shop and reimburse you $10 for your purchase. Not a lot but since I shop there anyway I do it once in a while. The only thing is that it's a pretty lengthy questionaire that they have you submit.

      I do mystery shopping (a little now but I did a lot when I lived in Florida). I made some pretty good money at it. I made more money doing merchandising than mystery shopping. Some of the shops you do you have to return the items and some you get to keep it just all depends on which company you work for. You really have to look out for which company you work for. The biggest problem I have is that it takes so long to get paid and some companies only pay via pay pal and some pay you via check.

      I am so excited to tell you about the mystery shop I just did for an apartment complex that I did for 30.00 it took less than a 1/2 hour. look up jancyn they are seeking shoppers now. I was called directly by one of the agents and was asked if I could do it that day. Sure and since we were looking for an apartment anyhow I thought what a great way to look.

      I did a bit of mystery shopping, but I always seemed to end up spending more than I got back, so I dropped it.
