A few days back, I wrote about mystery shopping as a potential income generating freelance task that one would be interested to join. I never mentioned at that time regarding the mystery shopping site I registered into. Well, for the information of everyone, there are several mystery shopping sites that you might like to try. They are everywhere and they give mystery shoppers some tasks to shop or just survey regarding a specific company.
Anyway, the only mystery shopping site that I joined in is Bare International Inc. This site was established in 1987 in Virginia. At that time, there were only limited mystery shop companies. I joined Bare International site just last year. At first, I was really excited and signed up immediately as a mystery shopper. However, my excitement was only short-lived when I read several negative feedback about this site such as not making payments to their members once they finished their assigned tasks. Well, it would be alright to get rejected with a certain task but once it involves some money, it is another story. You see, there are some assigned tasks that you really have to purchase and use your personal money. Later on, once you submitted your report to the company regarding the shop there is a tendency that they might disapprove your report. In the end, you will not get paid and get a refund of your purchases which is really disheartening.
As for my personal experience with this mystery shop site, I receive email notifications from them from time to time whenever there are available tasks close to my area. Most of the tasks need to shell out extra cash. I never tried to do any of these tasks since I am hesitant that I may not get a refund in return which actually happened to my friend. Another thing, I do not have enough time to do the assigned tasks during my office hours. Usually the tasks they assigned need to be done during office hours.
So, there you go, I cannot really simply say that Bare International Inc. is a fraud or a legitimate site. There may be a few individuals who were unfortunate for not getting paid for their tasks. Still, there are some individuals who are happy to share about their wonderful experiences with this company. I guess if you got extra time, you love to explore around different shops, and got keen eyes on important details, then mystery shopping would be right for you. Remember, the pay may vary depending on your assigned task.
Anyway, why don't you tell me your experience regarding any mystery shopping site that you have joined? It would be great to share your ideas.
