1. Find a reputable company. This means NEVER EVER NEVER NEVER pay to join a site or club that offers secret shopping services. More than likely, it's a scam. There are numerous sites that don't require any money to join.
2. Fill out an application. This usually involves writing up a short paragraph about a recent dining experience.
3. After being accepted, enjoy the perks of mystery shopping.
As a side note, keep in mind that most companies give you a reimbursement for what you spend. You spend the money upfront, and submit a report, and then are reimbursed typically within a month.
The shop reports you have to fill out can be extensive, and time consuming. Make sure it's worth it before you sign yourself up for a $6 shop at a fast food joint. I only visit restaurants that pay upwards of $50 because I find anything less not worth my time.
MSPA Shopper Certification is suggested by some companies, but is by no means required. I don't have it, and I still receive great shops.
Some companies to check out (by no means am I endorsing these so just FYI):
Hopefully that'll give you a starting point. It's totally legit. I've never had a problem in the 3 years I have done it. I have been to countless restaurants, visited the dentist for free which included exam and xrays ($250 value), and been paid to shop at retail stores.
Back when I was making scrapbooks for the wedding, I shopped around for the lowest price on prints for my photos. I discovered that sites gave you between 25-50 free prints just for registering. Once I used up all my free prints from Shutterfly, Winkflash, and others. I had all the prints I needed, for free. I just had to pay shipping and handling.
I regularly receive sales offers from Shutterfly because of my account. Recently I scored a free ($30 value) 8x8 Photo Book. I just had to pay $8 shipping and handling. I am going to make another free Photo Book courtesy of David's Bridal and Shutterfly.
Below is another offer, just for creating a share site on Shutterfly.
How the promotion works:
Between 3/11/09 and 4/15/09
|Create a new Share site and we’ll give you 30 free 4x6 prints. |
|Add five unique members to a site you own and you’ll get 20 free 4x6 prints (See how to add members below.) |
|Post a photo book to your Share site (a new or existing site) and you’ll get 10 free 4x6 prints. (See how to post a photo book below.)|
If you haven't heard of Redbox, or don't get out much, then let me tell you about my old best friend. Redbox is located usually at Wal Marts and outside McDonald's locations. They also just added one at the Walgreens .5 miles from my house. You can rent a new release for 99 cents a day.
Every Wednesday in March, Redbox has a new code you can use to rent a movie for free. To keep it free, just return by Thursday at 9 p.m. Find the code at http://blog.redbox.com/
You usually have a do a fair bit of scanning, but its there. :-)
Money saved= $.99 plus tax
The photo above shows all the ingredients you need. Just gather them up in the seen quantities, and throw in blender. Actually, pulse the onions and jalapenos together for a few seconds first. Then pop in the rest.
Blend all ingredients. My blender has a salsa feature so I just hit it and let it do it's thing. I let it run twice on the salsa feature, and turn it off when I can smell the blades burn. Then you'll want to chill in freezer for 30 minutes. It's just a quirk I do, not really required. But definitely CHILL before serving (2 hours is preferred.. the flavors need to jive).
Serve. Just hopefully not on the floor.
SERVES 32 , 4 Cups (change servings and units)
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can tomatoes and green chilies
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can whole canned tomatoes (plus the juice)

- 1/2-3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon sugar

Let's get to the ingredients:
2 cans Stewed Tomatoes Italian Recipe (drain juice and PUREE in blender)
1 lb Ground Chuck Beef (cube steak will work here too)
Cooked white rice
Fresh diced garlic
Fresh diced white or yellow onion
1. Make pretty little round patties with the ground beef (about 1/4 lb each).
2. Place in nice heavy pan.
2. This is optional, but seriously, mind blowing goodness (if you don't get out much). Throw on some diced up FRESH garlic and diced yellow onion (or white onion). I press the chopped garlic into the meat.
This is what it should look like when you crank on the heat.
3. Brown the meat until it looks something like this (make sure you nicely saute those onions and garlic, but don't burn em):
4. Drain excess juice from the meat. And then add the 2 cans of pureed stewed tomatoes.
5. Turn heat on low and cover. Let simmer and jive for an hour. Sometimes just 30-45 minutes.. whatever floats your boat.
Serve over rice.
2 cans stewed tomatoes $1.50
1 lb beef $1.77
Chopped fresh garlic $0.10
Yellow Onion $0.30
White Rice $0.75
