    I came across a very useful website for Mystery Shopping information, that I thought would be useful to share.

    Have a look at: ilovefreebiesuk.net/mysteryshopping.htm

    Some good tips and ratings on the various MS agencies out there (in addition to the information already provided at the top of this thread).

    Hope it helps!

    MF's fee for the high end fashion stores is incredibly low! They would have to double it for me to consider it.


    They also have an expensive shirt/blouse shop on the books and the reimbursement would just cover the sleeve. Who does these jobs is a mystery?. Market farce boards are good for a laugh.

    There are still plenty of ESA convenience store visits in my area. It is good that they finally removed crushed biscuit/crisps scenario. I spoke to ESA today and they confirmed they wouldn't allocate more than 6 visits per wave.

    Is that what they are?
    I saw that about 500 jobs had gone up but they don't actually show up for me in any search. Not sure which bit of my profile causes me to be ineligible. Ah well

    Probably your location. Looks like it is only certain regional chains that are included.

    Haven't been around lately, but still shopping. December was quiet in this area but did an Eating Company one and got great feedback so was happy with that.

    I did 2 on the same day for GR 2 weeks ago, they just show as 'completed' and 'pending payment' I assume as they haven't been in touch all is well? (These were my first for them)

    GAP on Thursday - My first! I failed the test the first time - Duh! Im out shopping anyway so no biggie and it's been a long time since I've had one

    No shopping next week, I'm off to Gran Canaria :P Hence Thursday shopping.

    GAPburger on Thursday - My first! I failed the test the first time - Duh! Im out shopping anyway so no biggie and it's been a long time since I've had one and it's a xxx fee as they are desperate. Any tips for those shops?

    The biggest tip is to not breach client confidentiality and adhere to the rules on the 1st page of the thread and do not gloat about fees, you will get shot down in flames.
