Make Calls for Cash

You can earn extra money by sitting at home and making mystery shop phone calls.  This sounds too good to be true, but you can do it, because I’ve done it within the last few months.  Mystery shopping can be fun and quite lucrative, but with gas prices at sky-is-the-limit rates, driving around to complete mystery shop assignments can be costly.

Doing phone mystery shops is a way to reduce your gas expenses.  Shoppers’ View and Measure Consumer Perspectives, are just  two of several reputable mystery shopping companies that offer various types of  phone shop assignments every week.  There are more companies that I will reveal in future posts.

Types of Phone Shops Available

Every week Shoppers’ View send various types of phone shops to my email inbox.  Most of them require you to call a specific business and ask a few questions to inquire about specific services.  You do this mainly to rate the company’s customer service over the phone.   The actual call itself usually only takes about three to five minutes.

Completing The Phone Shop Assignment

After calling a company, you must fill out a form on Shopper Views’ website  to document the results of your call.  The form is a summary of the details of your shop.  You must provide specific information, such as how long it took for an agent to answer,  if the agent followed protocol, and if  the agent was knowledgeable enough to answer your questions.   The form usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete, depending on how fast you type.

The Pay For Mystery Phone Shops

Don’t expect to get rich just doing mystery phone shops.  Although I’ve done phone shops that paid $20.00 or more, most of them pay between a range of $2.00 to $12.00 dollars.   This is not a lot of money, but if you sign up and request a few shops a week, you can make extra money by doing much of nothing.   And if you calculate the cost by the actual time it takes to complete a shop — around 15 minutes — you may see the benefits.

For instance if you do three phone shops for $4.00 dollars each and it takes you 20 minutes to complete each one, you’ve actually made $12.00 dollars in one hour.  That’s not bad for sitting at home, making a few phone calls and filling out a few short questionnaires.  Of course there are shops that pay more than $4.00, allowing you to make more in less time.

Final Note

If you want to do phone shops, Shoppers’ View and Measure Consumer Perspectives are two mystery shopping companies that  offer them regularly.  These companies are reputable, and they pay on time.  If you want to earn extra money for upcoming Summer outings, this is one way to do it.

1Hello. My name is Katina Blue. Over the years I have learned to be a cash creator. What is a cash creator you ask? Well if you have ever been extremely broke with no help for paying bills in sight, you start to invent ways to make extra money. So you become a cash creator. I have found tons of ways to “create” extra money for myself in hard times. Some of the ways I have explored can potentially be full time work for yourself jobs. I intend to share what I have found and will find with those of you interested in creating extra cash or working full time from home.
