A lot of teachers are looking for something to do in the holidays or a way to make a bit of extra money. One way you can do this is mystery shopping. As the name suggests you go into various stores or other places as a customer and report back on your experiences.
Sometimes you are paid to go and may just have to make a few enquiries such as asking for something in another size. On other occations you will be asked to have a meal, buy some clothing or even stay over in an hotel. I have done lots of different ones, here are a few of the things I have had as part of my mystery shops.
A couple of things before you start: never pay to join a website and only do ones you are interested in.
So now onto some places to sign up. Theres loads out there and these are just a few of my favourites.
Market Force - loads of shops out there including pubs and evenings out. They have a great app too.
ESA - less shops available but they do have one or two different things. They also have lots of enquiry based ones where you don't have to buy anything.
Redwigwam - this is a great one they have some shift work too such as football stadium bar work as well as mystery shopping. They also have jobs where you buy something online then review it.
Those 3 are the ones I use the most but I have also used Tern, Amber Arch and Grassroots in the past.
Do you have any top tips? If you do then post them below.
