First MS check in the mail

I just starting doing MS in Jan. I was a little skeptical...will I get paid. How does payment with paypal work? Will the MS companies take my reports. Well I actually received my first check in the mail today. I am doing a happy dance. I am getting reimbursed to do something that I love to do - eat out at nice restaurants. Do you remember your first check?

Congratulations Vicky!!!! I remember my first payment (through paypal). It was only $20 but boy was I thrilled! Believe it or not, 7 years later and I still get excited every time $$ is deposited to my paypal or a check comes in the mail.
My first check was direct deposit from Trendsource and I could NOT believe they paid me within one week! All the horror stories of waiting months..(yes, true for some companies)

My first check was $11.25 smiling smiley
Yep, I still remember my first check from mystery shopping. It was only for $25, but it seemed too good to be real at the time. Ever since then, I've enjoyed checking the mail each day. smiling smiley

I got paid by four companies the same day, one by check ($10) one by direct deposit and one by Paypal.

The very first shop I did was on August 24 and it wasn't paid until November 1. The one that paid me by check paid within 3 weeks of the shop.

I pray it does not occur that the last thing I did before I died was vacuum the house or eat broccoli.
Vicky, congratulations on getting your first check. The more you shop the more you get.

Speaking of ACL, I received my check yesterday and just noted that $1.27 was added to each of my shops? Does anyone know what that is about?

There's been a couple of times when a couple of different MSC's have added some random small amount to my pay, without explanation. Often not even an even dollar amount. Weird.

Happiness is merely life's way of keeping you off-balance.
My first check..Bestmark $14. My first shop to go with that check, new car shop, my first lesson learned...$14 is not enough to tell all of those lies. smiling smiley
My very first check came from Secret Shop Net (remember them?) for $15. I remember thinking, "Oh, so mystery shopping isn't a scam after all!" LOL
I was so thrilled when I got my first check. Could not believe I was getting paid to eat hamburgers. For me mystery shopping has gotten better each month with the checks getting bigger. What I have learned is that it is not easy, we are more than mouth breathers (from previous thread), you need money, a car and a computer just to get started. It is now month 6 for me and getting much easier. I am finding that I do not have to write a novel, print out everything and can be flexible in the shops that I take. Welcome - the info I get from this forum is priceless.
My first check was for $ was a website visit/email question/onsite visit to JobLink. Perfect since I had just moved and the info on local companies came in handy. Getting paid to do it was gravy. Oh, and it was only 2 miles from my house. smiling smiley

My first mystery shop money was a check sent to me in the amount of $30 for evaluating a fairly well know hair loss solutions clinic. I didn't get the money for almost three months but this particular MSC does state that payment can take from 45 to 60 business days. I sure felt good when the check arrived as for a first shop, this one was a little complex in the sense of the amount of lies involved. I pulled it off well enough though and did get the promised money. And to some degree I was hooked I guess you could say.
