I have been looking online at the mystery shopper jobs, they all seem to need a membership to a website to get the referrals/jobs. Does anyone have any experience doing this or with these companies? Are the websites legit or are they scamming for the fee money?

I have done quite a few shops for feedbackplusinc.com and there is no fee---just an application/certification process. In my area the shops are very competitive and I haven't been able to get any decent ones lately. The pay per shop varies, but their payment is always prompt and their communication top notch.

trishshack, I like your location, "BFE, Kentucky". I'm in KY, too. What kind of places do you shop with checkmarkinc? I signed up to be a mystery shopper with another agency, but was never able to do any shops b/c I was at the end of my pregnancy, then had a c-section, then had a colicky babe. I'd like to give it another try, but am curious what shops you do and how hard it is to do feedback.

i do shops for www.bestmark.com and one other company. there was no fee, i just filled out the application and signed on for email notifications. i've done restuarants, gyms and a telephoen call. fees and reporting vary.

i'd say the gym was the least profitable cause it only paid $15 - $20 but they require very detailed and extensive narrating after the 30-40 minute visit. not that the money isn't handy cause it is but you have to weigh if the pay-out is worth the time. it was still interesting though. i enjoy "shopping" and can't wait for a retail.

I mostly do Winn Dixie. I once did a Fashion Bug and was offered it another time but it was not a good time for me. At first it was kind of complicated because there are a lot of questions on the form. But since I do this every month I just need to take a quick glance to make sure nothing has changed. I can take ds with me on these and since I am used to it I can get in and out before he gets cranky.

ETA: I do live in BFE, seriously. There is nothing here.

I am a professional mystery shopper. I work for Checkmark, Feedback Plus, Betsmark, and dozens of others. I am one of the few people who actually makes a living doing this, and I am gold certified by the professional organization.

don't pay for those sites. they are scams in that they take your money and give you a (legitimate) list of companies that are freely available. volition.com has an extensive mystery shopping area, including a forum, FAQs and a list of companies.
