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.
Old Navy Style Lab- $8.00
Schlesinger Associates/Inspired Opinions– $65.00
Ad Revenue- $5.00
Corporate Research International– $12.34
Total Earned: $237.59
What did I do with this money?
Paid for repair to my car and vet bill for my dog. Joy. So much for throwing more money into savings this month.
What did you earn last month? Do you have any side hustle ways to make extra cash?
