Mystery Shopping With TrendSource
If you are interested in mystery shopping, you may want to check out Trendsource. I came across the review for Trendsource while visiting Earn On The Side.com, and I think Trendsource sounds pretty interesting.
Basically it is a mystery shopping company, however with a majority of their assigned jobs, you would actually reveal your identity to store owners or managers and do a short interview with them.
Basically you apply with TrendSource and once you are hired, you will get email opportunities periodically that you can either accept or not. According to the review of TrendSource on Earn On The Side, payment for jobs is usually in the $10-$25 range and will require about 30-60 minutes of your time. TrendSource will sometimes even pay for your gas if you have to drive far.
I have checked around a bit on the Internet today, and have to say I have seen positive comments on TrendSource thus far.
And from the TrendSource website:
