If you are using Chrome go to settings and search for JAVASCRIPT. Make sure it is enabled(usually ticked), I remember unticking it for another deal, probably the H&M minimum spend one...

I am a mystery shopper for ABAi and they do lots of other stores too so even if you don't have a selfridges by you it is still worth signing up for one of the other stores.

I have javascript enabled in Chrome and still getting the error message. Same in Firefox...

I'm a mystery shopper for Abai and last time I looked at one of these jobs it required you to spend a minimum of £25 instore, Not a great deal unless you are buying there anyway.

Not really a good deal. I've been mystery shopping with a different website for about a year now. Get paid £10-£25 per visit paid straight into my bank account. They have all sorts of assignments like Domino's pizza, bowling, eating out and cloths shopping.

In my opinion it would be much better to look around for a better site..

Would you mind sharing that website?

What does being a mystery shopper require? I work in a high-street shop and we regularly have mystery shoppers which we are expected to score 85% on each time, it is really good to receive feedback from customers as it always helps to improve the service. I have only received positive comments from any mystery shoppers I have served so it definitely makes me feel like I am doing my job properly

I just wondered if anyone who is a mystery shopper, are you briefed on what the standards of the shop should be or is it all down to your personal opinion? From various results from mystery shoppers that I have seen it seems to vary on what that person's expectations are. Some mystery shoppers are understanding of queues, whilst others will mark it as a negative (obviously waiting in a queue isn't great, but for us to interact properly it does take a little bit longer rather than trying to rush people through a transaction). I always wondered if mystery shoppers are given money to pay for their goods, as they often vary from less than £10 to over £50.

It seems like a great way to make a little bit of extra money!

There's loads out there. I use grassrootsmysteryshopping.com/msw…spx and uk.marketforce.com/reg…516

The MarketForce one is definitely the best but you have to complete a long registration to make sure you can spell.

ABA is not good ,I joined them about 2 years ago.They sent me from time to time visits available in my area,many times unable to log in,I sent email and no answer,when able to log in no visits at all...I don't bother any more.Grassroots is great,I'm with them since 2007 and I used to get al least 3 or 4 visits a month if not more but with the recession in the last years they don't send as many as they used to do or nothing at all for months and months (if you are able to get them,sometimes they go 2 minutes after you receive the email).I've done only 1 this year but as a company they are good and always pay on time.

You get a specific brief for each assignment. Most of it is a questionnaire so if there is a long queue you have to be honest and select the option most relevant. We get paid a fee for completing the assignment and a reimbursement which should cover the cost of the shop, but you can spend as much as you want. I've only ever given one bad review, which was to Yates, as they had moody staff and burnt food. I like giving good reviews, especially if the staff where friendly.

You get paid £10 for the assignment-it comes in cash through the post.
If you have to purchase anything you can return the item before you leave the store.

Do you actually have to visit the shop in question?

Remember you have to declare the extra income to the taxman

'extra' I am confused ?

Yes of course you do.

Who knows??

Basically, yes you will have to visit the shop. You will be allocated a day and time span to do the assignment. You will have a long detailed assignment spec which will tell you what you will be doing. A typical spec will be to observe the cleanliness of the store, the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, noting names, descriptions and exactly how the staff respond to your enquiry- you will be given the enquiry and told which departments to visit- changing rooms etc. Like I visited a supermarket yesterday and had to check that certain products were in stock, if they were fresh and attractively displayed... I had to visit the meat and fish departments and make a purchase (refunded up to £10), I had to ask the staff a question there and had to note if I had eye contact, a smile, a greeting and good service. I then had to make a aisle enquiry (along the lines of finding a specific product) and note all of the above again. I had to join a queue at check out and note all of the above once more! You will have to upload receipts and sometimes take photos of the store- all incognito.

I do work for Abai and have carried outWilkinsons and Argos assignments for them, they are not prolific in my area but it depends where you live, I also work for about 8 other mystery shopping companies. You won't get rich and it's very sporadic but I have over £1000 worth of free stuff and payments since April this year. I do keep self employment books but it is very easy to do! I use a spreadsheet and just note each one I do, what it cost me to do it and keep receipts.
HTH!

Seem like a lot of work for £10.
You are looking at least 1 hours worth of time going to/from the store, plus uploading receipts and completing "reports". Perhaps suitable for a student or somebody else with a lot of spare time but I would rather just goto work for an hour and earn more?

Not voting either way - just feel payment doesn't match the effort required.

this is nice, but not many items under a tenner worth the travel
