Online surveys and mystery shopping get a bad rap. Many people think that they are just scams but there are really some great (and legitimate) companies out there that will pay you for your time and effort. And to prove it, here’s what I earned from online surveys and mystery shopping last month, among other endeavors. I completed these mystery shops and surveys in the previous month (or earlier) and received the payment this month. Some of these mystery shops required me to pay something out of pocket to purchase a good or service (which I get to keep) but I was reimbursed for my purchase and was usually paid an additional fee.
Total Earned in June: $180.22
Total Minus Out Of Pocket Expenses (which were reimbursed): $74.76
I have been busy with school and work so I haven’t been able to mystery shop as much or do a lot of online surveys so I made less this month. This money went into the savings account to help pay for traveling to California for my sister’s wedding. The Amazon e-gift card will be used toward a wedding gift for my sister since she registered on Amazon. I can’t believe she’s getting married in a month! So exciting yet so much to do in the meantime!
