  • Go to and fill out an app. You'll have to get certified; its almost impossible to fail. They will send you a REDICULOUS amount of emails of jobs needed in your area. Its an easy process and you'll have NO problem finding anything :)

  • I did secret shopping and it wasn't worth it. the pay was too low for the amount of effort required.

  • I have a forum on cafemom that covers this. I will add it so when you do a forum search, under looking for new members, it will come up.

  • If you are a Secret Shopper, you have to realize you are not working from home. You actually have to get out there and shop. I used to do it for Macey's and Target. I actually called the home offices to check on it. It wasn't really worth it though... With Macey's I had to shop seven different dept. and get names, etc... To me, it was a hassle. There are better things out there. Have you looked into merchandising? Again, you have to actually get out and do assignments, but they can be large or small, depending on what you want. Go to and check out your area.
