    1. i was once a mystery shopper, but couldn’t devote the time i needed to do it well. i am now retired and really appreciate the pre-screening you have provided here! hope to get back into the fun!

      • I have been reading about it but get so much junk emails from them I was kind of worried it was not really true. Can u send me some info on what I would do to get in touch with a legimate company. thanks

      • Wow, I would love to do this! Has everyone had good experiences with it? Do they reimburse as promised, etc.

        Mystery shopping has always worked well for me. You don’t get rich doing it and you’d have to sign up for a lot of companies to make a part time job out of it but the advantages are you can pick and choose what you want to do.

    2. mystery shopping has always intrigued me, but i have no idea how to begin. if anyone would be willing to share advice i would love to hear from you.
