Those who know me, know that Denise's book sent me on a journey. It taught me a lot about myself as well as how I can best help my clients. If you have not read it, I highly recommend checking it out.
I have shopped with them in the past doing primarily shops for financial institutions (i.e., completing a simple transaction, account opening, phone inquiries, etc.) A couple of things I really like about these shops: (1) There is no out-of-pocket expense. (2) The questionnaire about the shop is straightforward and not too lengthy.
This company offers a wide variety of different shops. If you are short on cash for a date night, they offer shops at some pretty nice venues. Pros: (1) Shops available at local restaurant. (2) Shops available at nicer venues. Cons: (1) You must pay for your expenses up front. They will be reimbursed after your questionnaire is accepted. (2) Some of the questionnaires are pretty lengthy, especially for the higher price shops.
The one does apartment shops so you would shop a leasing agent. These are a little more time-consuming but they pay pretty well. Once you get used to the questionnaire, it gets a little easier. I have not done one of these in quite a while but if I remember correctly, they pay quicker than some of the other mystery shopping companies.
