“‘The Essential Guide To Mystery Shopping‘ is the best book on mystery shopping to come along in years! I couldn’t put it down once I started reading! After seven years as a mystery shopper, I found myself nodding my head in agreement at the suggestions. It’s a must have for mystery shoppers.” Paula Kutka, Mystery Shopper, Houston, TX
If you are skeptical on becoming a mystery shopper or if its even true, you can be assured that its real. Sure some sites out there want you to jump through leaps and bounds to become one, but there are plenty of legitimate jobs out there for shopping. It also helps if you have a book on what to look for and what to stay away from.
I was actually a mystery shopper fro AAFES overseas. They were asking that people apply and then would select stores needed the shoppers. I received cash, free movies with food, and other products for just a few minutes of my time. I would get an email on what i needed to review too. Such as, ‘today please purchase something under $25 and then try to return it without the receipt.” I would then go home and fill out a questionnaire on time, attitudes and even names.
I don’t think i ever had a good review on our AAFES store sadly. lol. It was always so over cluttered. Any mom with a stroller was a hazard in that place. But after my 1 year long mystery shopping experience, I seen major improvement. I am not sure if I helped contribute that, but it felt nice that someone listened.
