Earn money Mystery Shopping
A good way of paying for your Shopping trip as well!
Mystery Shopping is a good little earner because you can often fit it in with other things and you are usually given a choice of dates to do it on.
What is it ?
Basically it's gathering information about a companies retail outlet, petrol station, restaurant, hotel or other foramts.
Let's take two examples 1. a fast food retaurant and 2. a retail outlet.
1. Fast Food Restaurant
You are given a few dates to choose from specifying a time of the day. You download a form from the Mystery Shopping comapny web site which is in the form of a tick sheet / scorecard and space for comments.
So, on Wednesday morning, you go into the restaurant and make a mental note of all the things you've been asked to check up on. This will probably consist of the following;
1. What time did you enter 2. Was the area outside clear of rubbish
There's going to be about 20 - 30 questions altogether. You go home, fill out the online form and that's it !
2. Retail Outlet.
These are often combined with taking something back for a refund. Most points are similar to above and you make the purchase.
The positive about this is that you can often tie the job in with the day you were going down town anyway, so you could get your shopping day 'free' in the sense that you've had a meal out and got your petrol money back and so on.
The petrol station jobs are often the reimbursement of the petrol only, like you buy £10 worth of fuel and just get the money back.
It's not Big money, but it's another option and string to your bow. It's the pennies which make the pounds, the cents which make the dollars and this kind of work with a few other things can at least add a wee bit to the bank balance.
