ARTICLE - Doing Mystery Shops Beyond Your Area

If you are going on a holiday within the UK or are simply moving around and would like to carry out some mystery shopping for us, please let us know! 

We put all mystery shops online approximately on the 28th of every month to be shopped the next month. So if it's last-minute, rather than applying for a shop online, call us on 02030954954 and let us know where you will be heading. 

The Programme Co-ordinator in charge of that region will be able to tell you what assignments we have available and they may be able to allocate it to you directly.

Alternatively, if you know that you are going away before-hand, you may want to have a look at what is available in that area. To do this, head to the 'Assignment List' and edit your location. If you are unsure how to do this, please click here.

Here are some important points to think about if you are doing a mystery shop away from where you live:

1. Many of our mystery shops require contact details to be given. For example, if you are visiting a Leisure Centre, remember to lookup an address that is near the area you will be mystery shopping in order to make your visit more genuine. It would be a giveaway to have a Manchester address if you are mystery shopping a gym in London!

2. Some of our mystery shops require the shopper to return to the location again (for example member journeys or even a visit that requires a refund). If you are only travelling there for a short period or may not be able to do a return visit for whatever reasons, do not accept the mystery shop. We will be unable to pay you if you cannot complete the entire mystery shop. Always read the brief and the questionnaire and if in doubt contact your friendly Programme Co-ordinator!
