I do the one shop for them whenever possible. Both the visit and the report are easy. Not counting travel time, it usually takes me 20 minutes to do both (10 minutes in the store, 10 minutes writing the report). Most importantly, the company pays on time! In case there are any payment delays (which happened only once), they will let you know before you contact them to inquire.
I do want to do some assignment for ShopAngels. I receive an email telling me that there are jobs available. But after I have log in, the jobs are not available. The jobs dissapear just after an hour of the time the email was sent. It is hard to know when do ShopAngels sent the emails, so that I can get a few assignments. I am really sad.
I signed up with them over a year ago and have even mentioned to schedulers that post on the board that I'm willing to do shops while on the road. So far, no shops ever offered, even in a 750 mile radius.
It's been my experience that their shops are gone the minute they hit the boards. They probably don't have difficulty getting the shops done so it may not be worth it to them to try to match shops with a shopper who is traveling. The shops here are dead easy with a 5-minute report.
If you are travelling and want to find out if any shops are coming up in the locations you are travelling to. Feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know dates and locations. We will then circulate your email and if anything comes up, we can let you know.
Yes some of our mystery shopping assignments get snapped up really quickly so here's a tip. We often upload the coming month's assignments at the end of the previous month so I recommend that you log online around the end of each month/beginning of the new month to see what's coming up.
Also if you see something and you are available the following day or previous day, feel free to send an email to see if it can be changed to suit. Sometimes this is possible.
Finally, if you know anyone who lives in Red Deer, Canada please pass on out details to them, we desperately need shopper there. Other locations we seek new shoppers are Maryland, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Texas,, Utah, California and Connecticut.
