Before starting to really get into Mystery Shopping, I recommend that you get a NEW email
address (preferrably a FREE one). That way when you get bombarded w/ email you are not getting your regular mail box overflowing
w/ email...I use www.mail.com I have been w/ them for years and love it!
I would like to thank Dawn Hunt for allowing me to use her info to create this page for you...
Sign up w/ Dawn if you are interested in getting started w/ Mystery Shopping and
The link below is an online directory of Focus Groups throughout the US. Just go to the site, click
on FOCUS GROUP FACILITIES on the left hand side....then enter your CITY/STATE in the search page. You'll be shown all
the local focus groups locations in your area. Most of them have a contact or sign up page. Focus groups usually pay
you upwards of $50/$100 for a few hours time.
Here are a few websites that once you are registered, you can self-assign assignments. I get quite
a bit of work from these.
Service Intelligence: http://www.secretshopnetcom/index.html offers a wide variety of jobs. You will have to take certification for each company you want to
shop, but they aren't hard.

ranged and are easy to work with.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A MAIL DECOY:
This is similar to Hausernet, except you do not have to save the
magazines. You receive mail and call it in to an 800 number, and get paid postage stamps to do this. I am doing it, and love
it. It is fast and easy. This is called Quad Readers. If you would like to hear more about the Quad readers, please email
Jill at firstname.lastname@example.org with your information to see if she has an opening in your area.
Here is another mail decoy program. Most people earn about $20 a month. Just go to the following website:
Once you go to that website, you can click on DECOY LIST, which will take you to a second page where
on the left hand side is a search area. Just put in your state and city, and it'll come up with all the decoys in that
area. If you don't see your particular zip code, then you should contact DAVE ---- email@example.com right away as he'll want to use you as a decoy. If you do see your zip code, then contact them
anyway...you never know, they might need more decoys. The pay isn't much, only 25 cents per envelope, but hey, it's so little
work. All you have to do is get your mail, and if you have decoy mail (you'll have to contact the PO and tell them you're
a decoy, they'll understand right away and allow you to get "funny sounding" mail addressed to you) you go to the hauser
website, and just fill out the form. The form usually consists of the first and last name of the envelope that has been
sent to you, a special code and the date you received it.....that's it. Those little 25 cent envelopes add up....
