I have been mystery shopping for real payment for about 2 years now. PM me and I will send you some links of companies I use....Just NEVER pay a company, They should be paying you. Its not a lot of money. I would get lucky to find a couple shops in one day that pay 8-10 bucks in the same area or mall. Then it may be worth it, but the next day might not be so lucky. I'd say you could realistically make about $100.00 a month if you include all the costs of gas and mileage. Also, many places will pay you reimbursement only. It's nice if you want to get free lunches and such, but if money is tight and you wouldn't have gone out anyway your kind of losing the gas money---but getting free lunch. It takes a while to sign up for all the companies and search through them daily so I am not as into it as I used to be.
