Back clas­si­fied in the ad 1980s, look­ing I saw for a some­one to ‘mys­tery shop’ a movie theater in ex­change for two tick­ets, pop­corn and drinks. As a poor col­lege stu­dent who loved movies, I called and got the job. It was great! Then I de­cided to re­visit se­cret shop­ping again sev­eral years ago. I found a mar­ket re­search com­pany and signed up. I was able to pick my jobs, from gro­cery shop­ping to vis­it­ing cin­e­mas. As a stay-at-home mom, go­ing to see movies gave me a fun rea­son to get a break and a cost-ef­fec­tive way to go out with my hus­band. When I started, we were a mil­i­tary fam­ily on a limited bud­get, so see­ing a movie was a real treat, not to men­tion the free snacks and get­ting paid $ 20 for the as­sign­ment. And some jobs pay more—up to $100! “As for the work it­self, which I still do, I just note things like how easy it was to get my tick­ets and con­ces­sions and what ads were shown. To file my re­port, I log in and an­swer ques­tions about my ex­pe­ri­ence, like whether the bath­rooms were clean. I get paid via Pay­pal about a month after my visit.” Note: To find sim­i­lar work in your area, search “mys­tery shop­per” and your city, then visit the Bet­ter Busi­ness Bureau ( to check the com­pany’s rat­ing be­fore sign­ing up.
