Mystery shopping and online surveys

Today we ran the Warren Rives 5K, the whole family. It was a beautiful day and there were many people out running. Three Cliff kids walked away with medals, so overall, they were pretty happy!

This evening we did have the priviledge of being at the airport for the Triad Flight of Honor. Of course, I was crying. There must have been at least a thousand (or 2?) there. I'm not very good when it comes to estimating crowds, but it was just such a blessing.

Are you are part of any online survey/research groups? If so, I would love to hear your experiences. is one of the oldest and the best. It is the best paid survey opportunity on the web, and they are currently looking for new members. The categories of people they are looking for is always changing, so apply again to see if you qualify.

I would also love to hear from you if you have ever done any mystery shopping. Mike and did this for a few years with a group called Confero. Basically, you are paid to shop and then rate the business. We got quite a few free meals, oil changes and even a couple of grocery store shops. Check out to see if this is something you might be interested in doing.

Have a great Sunday!

  1. I've been mystery shopping for over 20 years. The best advice I can give people is to never pay to be a mystery shopper! There are lots of free companies out there. I do restaurants, hotels, stores, casinos, movie theaters, bowling name a few! is the one I have worked with the longest.
