Would you like to earn extra money for mystery shops?
You can fit them in on a day and time that suits you and the financial reward is worthwhile, my best so far has been £50 for an hour visit to a high street bank with mystery shopping company Ragdoll Research
I am registered with a number of companies that offer mystery shopping and its simple, you sign up by completing a short questionnaire and then someone will get back to you and run through your details and allocate a shop, store or branch to you based on your location and the information you provide
They will post you any tape recording devices that might be required and any expenses like travel or if you have to make a purchase as part of the shop is reimbursed; you do need to make sure you keep all receipts to get the money back and make sure budgets are discussed with the agent before you venture out on your mystery shop
Each mystery shop will be different and there isn’t any limit to how many you can do. The money you are paid for mystery shopping is classed as an income and you are liable to pay tax on it therefore you would need to declare it to HMRC
The whole idea behind mystery shopping is so that companies can evaluate the level of service being supplied to customers in order to see where their store or branch is excelling or failing. If a store knew they were being evaluated the chances are they would be on their best behaviour which would not give a true reflection on how the store is run on a day to day basis hence the need for mystery shoppers
Mystery shopping can also be done online, or over the phone, you don’t need to visit a store to evaluate a service and companies such as eDigital Research you sign up on line and you can test apps and make online purchases, of which are reimbursed
It is a great way to boost your monthly income
