Secret Shopping

Are you interested in Secret Shopping?  This isn't the best way to make a lot of money, but it's fun and you get free stuff, car or computer services, other services, food, or many other things.  And a little compensation for your time too.  Check these out.  If you sign up on the website, they will show you the shops available.  You don't have to do any of them, you just check whenever you feel like it and see what's available.  So you're not obligated when you sign up, and if you don't do any for a year, you're still eligible to do them.   So no worries!

Make sure you read them carefully.  If you don't do them correctly, you may not get reimbursed or paid.  But as long as you read the requirements, you'll be fine.  I've never not gotten paid. This place has Cheesecake Factory Shops. You can do one every 3 months. These are the easiest secret shops I have ever done as far as the follow-up survey is concerned. This website has places like Panera, IHOP, Car dealerships, Aldi. This one has Bank of the West. (and others) This is a good place to go to find other Secret Shopping Companies. This is where I found the hotel secret shop.  You just search for jobs in your area and sign up through the company offering them. I have never actually done a shop for this company, but they have Buffalo Wild Wings, and a few others. The only thing is you have to order an alcoholic drink from the bar or something like that. You can dump it out, but we don't like to do these. This is a good one if you take time to do the training thing. It's not that long. I've never done a shop but they have Mc Donalds and stuff. This is another good one. This is the one I go through to do Scheels, Qwest and Pilot gas stations. They have some big paying ones too that you have to go pretend to take some test or something, or at tax time you can get your taxes done through a secret shop.


  1. Thanks Amy. There a lot of market research here in CO. (Focus groups/testing products) I may add secret shopping to my list! :-) Nikki Pope
