A Week in the Life of a Mystery Shopper

Last week was relatively slow. Originally I planned to travel to San Francisco for a conference my old employer had paid for me to attend. I figured I'd enjoy a few days in the Bay Area since there would be little out of pocket expense. Instead I decided to stay home for two reasons: 1) I needed to wrap up the lease with the tenant for the townhouse and 2) I wanted to earn more mystery shopping money.

We returned from Tampa early evening so I didn't do any shops.

I ate a free breakfast and then did my merchandising stores: one mystery shop and six stores to merchandise.

This was my most lucrative day, and it was a fairly easy one: 5 gas stations, a doughnut shop, a game store, and a car wash.


A fairly busy day: 3 gas stations, one merchandising job, a discount retailer and a fast food lunch.

Two trailer checks at a movie theatre, a fast food lunch and a game store.

Just a fast food lunch, and it wasn't from lack of effort. Seems like everyone must be mystery shopping to ear money for the holidays as there was almost nothing available.

Total Income for the Week: $251.20
Total Value of Reimbursements: $70.41
