Mobile shopping Apps

I think a lot of traditional mystery shoppers despise these apps, but I made a nice little payday today from using two apps and two big box stores and about 3.5 hours some had two restrictions. I was surprised how many were paid before I left the store.

I say at least check them out.

As with anything YMMV.

Mine are Observa, We Go Look and iSecretShop.

The last shop I did for Observa was at a big box store. I had to locate food storage items, photograph the display, buy the items (up to a certain dollar amount) and evaluate them.

That was my first shop that day. I was paid by my 5th and last shop.

I use Field Agent and Mobee. I would like to use Observa but it takes so long for the app to change screens or scroll, I give up sad smiley

I love the Field Agent Buy and Try shops. They are not going to pay a lot, I think the last one was $3, but they are quick and you get to try a product and give an opinion. It literally takes a few minutes and you're done. I wouldn't do one of those unless I was already in the store or there were several at a time, but it's a great "fill in" shop when you're already shopping. Between 2 apps and a traditional MS company, I made $27 in 20 minutes, including reporting.
I absolutely love iSecretShop whether it's the app or site because there's a bunch of companies in one spot and with little exception, the shops are easy. I can often pick one up on the way to work, one at lunch and one the way home, picking up an extra $15-35 plus meals for each on a day where I would be losing money by making/buying those meals.

I like some of the FA shops that only require taking some photos or some of the Buy & Try shops. I won't go out of my way for FA, but if I'm in the area and can snatch up a few, or if I'm right in the store, I'll do them. I've only done one Observa so far, as I don't care for their gas station audits. I do like how quickly they paid, though!
They aren't as available in my rural areas. The nearest Observa was well over 100 miles away. My friend made almost $500 last month just on Field Agent. I've don't know about iSecretShop. I didn't even know it was an app, I thought it was an MSC.

Who else uses iSecretShop as an app? Do they pay quickly, like Field Agent?
Cease, ISS houses many different MSCs in one pretty awesome platform. I have done work through that for 3 different companies, one I use at least once a week. My one main company pays every 2 weeks, the other is about a month.

Thank you, Jenny.

I am signed up with many companies; I actually do not know if any of them are on ISS.
I think that the companies on there are only on there. At least I haven't seen those companies anywhere else. Check it out, you can always see what they have without having to fill out a bunch more companies as they all feed off your profile. You just have to sign each contract, which takes seconds. I don't know if they're in your area, but if you give me your zip, I'll be glad to check it out.

I took a FA Buy and Try because I was already in the store, then found out I had to try it right then. I had to take it home and cook it, then photograph it, within a time limit. A real PITA.

Do you fill the reports through the app or go to that MSC's website?
@ceasesmith Nothing within 50 miles, but there's a few in OK. Also, they load shops all different times, so there may not be what normally is there. I don't think I've ever seen a zip with that little shops on any MSC board. Yipes!

@vince9 You fill the reports out in/on the ISS app/website

Shopping the South Jersey Shore
Yes, that's why I route shop -- I go just about anywhere within 400 miles. Except I don't do mountains or cities, LOL!
You do indeed seem to be centrally isolated from everywhere! smiling smiley
