There are a number of myths and frauds concerning “secret shopping” or “mystery shopping.” The purpose of this site is to cut through the mumbo-jumbo to educate people on what secret shopping is all about and how it works.
My name is Karen Roberts, and yes, I actually do mystery shopping myself and have friends that do so also. I have researched and studied secret shopping and have published information about this in the past. Although I cannot reveal specifics, I can say that I have done secret shopping assignments for things like oil changes, hair cuts, eyeglasses, eye exams, convenience store purchases, bookstore purchases, and banking. In fact, I have a couple of secret shopping assignments coming up next week. A nice way to earn some extra cash for things I would purchase anyway!
On February 6, 2010 I decided to update my website as a blog and bring it up to date for the new decade. So if you are looking for the old become-a-secret-shopper website, you won’t find it. I will be adding information as I can and hope to develop the best source of mystery shopping information that you’ll find on the internet!
In order to support the cost and effort of running this website, I have put up affiliate links to certain products. If you make a purchase through these links, I’ll earn a commission. Fair enough? You can help keep this site up and running through your purchases. But you have no obligation to purchase, and I charge no membership fees for you to access the free information here.
I also post Google ads on the site. I have no control over what information or products Google advertisers sell. However, the links I place for affiliate products are for those that I truly believe will be helpful to you as you branch out into earning money for doing shopping assignments yourself.
