A Week in the Life of a Mystery Shopper

July 4th - July 10th...

Things picked up a little last week, but I decided to take a few reimbursement-only jobs in Atlanta so I did not earn as much as I could have. No worries - it was an inexpensive way to get out of town for a couple days. Last week I made $556 in fees and $548 in reimbursements.

  • I visited 29 gas stations! Seriously. Even with a trip to Atlanta, I still have a few 5 gallon gas cans in the garage waiting when I need some gas.
  • I visited 18 stores for my merchandising job. These visits were easy and will be followed up by a second, longer visit this week.
  • I shopped a few retail stores, a few mailing stores, 4 restaurants, and verified the legitimacy of a business.
  • I drank a lot of alcohol last week, and it was all paid for... I'm going to write a post about getting free alcohol by mystery shopping next week, so more on this topic to come.
This week looks to be solid. My merchandising project will keep me busy for the next two days and I also have several gas stations lined up.
