  • Yes, it is legitimate but it's a lot of work for very little money. I can't knock it too much; it gave us food when we had none, but I'd try most anything else before wasting loads of time on that. You may want to check for advertising companies in your city that pay for focus group opinions. That's a much better use of time or even a home based business.

  • I work for a restaurant that gets mystery shoppers at least 3 times a month for the restaurant and at least 3 times for the bar. Idk how much they get paid or how they're hired but i do know that not of them can be scams b/c as a store we have to make sure that we're getting a certain percentage on our shoppers

  • I've done a few, but I honestly don't think it's worth it. I feel like I did a lot of work for such little pay. I didn't get paid until a month and a half later.
