  • I have heard some people say its legit, but more work than what you would think just because there is a lot of paperwork. So I'm not really sure.

  • Yeah...when I worked fast food we had secret shoppers. I read an article on msn a while back that had one website where you actually got secret shopper jobs and it wasn't a scam. I don't think you get paid much, if anything. If I remember correctly the food, or whatever else you buy, is your payment. I can't remember exactly.

  • There are legit ones, the pay varies from job to job. There is paperwork and scanning or faxing receipts which is mandatory in any that I have done. I have only done a few since the pay is low and I spend more in gas than they pay (which is once a month), usually you have to spend money to show the date and time the shop was done. The one company that comes to mind was Sassie mystery shoppers.

  • It is legit, however I personally think it was way too much work for such little pay. I tried a couple different companies, but I felt that it was a waste of time. I work from home, and I love it! I am a stay at home Mommy to my almost 3 year old son, and 15 month old daughter. I work with a great team of Moms; we help people create income from home.

  • I tried this and paid for the list of stores and got one store for $15 not worth it in my opinion. I found a real job from home and love it!
