Your Mystery Shopping Trips
If you live in an area of large
shopping centers or shopping districts, it makes sense to try and combine
more than one shop into a trip. With a good map, and familiarity of shopping
centers and districts, it will make it much easier to maximize your shopping
income when you are only paying gas for one trip instead of multiple trips,
not to mention the sheer time savings.
When you become familiar with
the shopping areas, try and select jobs in the same areas, even when you
are working with different companies. You can also pick up lower paying
jobs you might have otherwised turned down - if you are already going
to be in the area, taking a half hour for another $10 or $20 turns into
a profitable trip.
Do make sure you schedule yourself
enough time at home to complete all the reports from your combined mystery
shopping trip within the requisite 24 hours. If you miss the deadlines,
you will probably lose all the "extra" money in penalty costs.
