The season of love is gearing up as Valentine’s Day approaches. Many people stress about creating the perfect Valentine’s Day for loved ones. Valentine’s Day extends beyond simply showing your special someone how you feel. Many people also extend warm gestures of friendship, platonic affection, and more to friends and other family members like kids, parents, and grandparents during this time. Mystery shoppers can use their assignments to save money on gifts and tokens of love and friendship this holiday season. Here are the top assignments to get your hands on this Valentine’s Day:
Grocery Stores. You only have to step foot inside your nearest grocery store to see just a few of the many items you can purchase with your expense reimbursement on a grocery store assignment this Valentine’s Day. The most obvious items are those located on the seasonal merchandise aisle, such as boxed candies, Valentine’s Day cards for the kids’ friends, and special seasonal items. Walk beyond this aisle, and you will find greeting cards for everyone from your kids and grandparents to your best friend and spouse, beautiful floral arrangements and heart-shaped balloons in the floral department, and Valentine’s-themed baked treats in the bakery. Getting more creative, you can also pick up some delicious items in the meat or seafood departments to make a romantic meal for your loved one. If you have many people to shop for this Valentine’s Day, pick up a few different grocery store assignments to cover your expenses.
General Merchandise and Discount Stores. From Big Lots and the Dollar Store to Target and Walmart, general merchandise and discount stores abound in most cities. General merchandise and discount stores carry many of the same items as grocery stores, and often will carry more seasonal merchandise. These assignments are a great place to pick up Valentine’s Day gifts for the kids’ teachers, grandparents, neighbors, and more. Consider scented candles, bubble bath and other bath products, CDs, books, and more as gifts from these stores.
Clothing Stores. Your Valentine’s Day assignments don’t have to be all about everyone else. Take some time to pick up something for yourself, too! If you have a hot night out on the town planned for Valentine’s Day, you won’t want to miss out on the chance to pick up a new outfit for your big date. Whether you’re going to an elegant restaurant, the theater, or the hottest night club in town, you can use a couple of retail assignments to cover the extra expenses of a new outfit. You can look your best as you step out on the town with retail assignments where you can pick up new shoes, jewelry, make-up, and other accessories to coordinate with your new ensemble.
Some people will argue that Valentine’s Day has become an over-commercialized holiday. While that likely has some validity to it, you likely still want to make your friends and loved ones feel special this Valentine’s Day. When you use your mystery shopping assignments to cover some of your Valentine’s Day expenses, you can enjoy making your loved ones feel special without breaking the bank!
I’ve been reading your material about gravesite shops. I am VERY interested. Are there any companies looking for shoppers in Ontario, Canada, for this type of assignment? I would love to get started asap.
Thank you for the insight!
How do I deal with Mystery Shopping Provider who refused to pay the fee that includes the reimbursable expenses? I would like to share my humiliating experience with mystery shoppers who work hard and make honest living as I do. I hope you have a few minutes to read this.
I took a job from customerserviceexperts.com and worked 11 stores in MIA International Airport on Saturday, January 23, 2010. It took me long hours of investigating and reporting.
10 days after the reports were submitted; the company emailed me and told me that they would not pay for my works.
They said that I did not answer all the questions. As we all know well; it is impossible to send a report with unanswered questions. The web site would not accept the report. Furthermore, why they kept my reports for 10 days if the questions were not answered? How do I know if they delivered my reports and kept my part of the payment?
They said that they emailed me the guideline; I should have studied it so I would get paid. You bet I studied it! The guideline explained how to get in the Airport secured area for the stores that were located inside secured area. I found out over the telephone that my stores were located outside secured area. The information on the Guideline was useless to me.
At the end, the company brought up the Independent Contract Agreement. They said the Contract stated that the company has the right not to pay the shopper and I signed it.
I have 3 years of experience and I take the job very seriously. My reports were always detailed. The truth sometimes hurt the client, but my reports were all truth.
What they have done to me was not enough to satisfy them; they deactivated my account and said “we are unable to use your Independent Contractor service.” And said, “Good luck in your future endeavors.”
I hope that all the mystery shoppers would hear this humiliating experience and learn who cannot be trusted. After all, who needs trouble after hard and honest work?
I hope you agree that never to take a job from the company.
I had issue’s with this company when I lived in Florida. They are definitely off my list. Just move on..You are absolutely right. On Sassie System, a report would not go through if all questions were not answered. Something does not sound right.
