Last night I spent about an hour working on training for three mystery shops before I got to see the commissions. They were only 5-9 dollars and they were each going to take a long time. One was going to take at least two hours.
You also have a lot to memorize because they don't want you to be pegged as a Mystery Shopper. So there is more time. For me this is not something I want to do. If you can't find a job I can see this being a valid way of making a little extra cash. Also if you are out and about a lot you may want to think of this.
On top of that this is just one company that I will not name. I signed up for this company because they were supposed to have online shops and phone call shops. I have not seen one yet. There could be better companies I don't know enough to say anything bad about Mystery Shopping. I am going to stay signed up and see if there is any online shops if I find one I will report it.
After all that wasted time I tried to go to bet around 10 and I couldn't sleep. I got up and did a short work out on our weight machine. I plan to do more today and get on the treadmill. I made a bunch of peach syrup yesterday. I used four bags of frozen peaches and 3/4 of a cup of brown sugar. I put the peaches in my new food processor and pureed it. Then I threw it in a big pot with the sugar and cooked it for an hour. I separated it into individual containers and put some in the freezer. I got Fiber One pancakes they were not very good and had some ingredients I was not sure what they were. I like the Pancake mix by Hodgson Mills, Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancake Mix but I can't find it near me. I may have to order it from amazon.
