Letter From the Editor

Welcome to Issue Twelve of Mystery Shopper Magazine! It’s hard to believe we’ve come this far. In our twelve issues, we’ve reviewed 25 mystery shopping companies, and 19 types of assignments. We’ve also profiled 3 mystery shoppers, and shared quite a few adventures from Cettie.

And we’re just getting started.

Our hope is that we’re building a valuable resource for mystery shoppers everywhere. We want to make your life as a mystery shopper as easy as possible. That’s why we review mystery shopping companies — so you know which companies have opportunities you might want. And that’s why we review assignments — so you know how to get a wide variety of assignents without jumping through unnecessary hoops.

If you’re new to mystery shopping, you might be pleased to know that we’re working on a short ebook that will guide you through the process of becoming a successful mystery shopper. If you have any thoughts or suggestions for this book, please send an email to

This issue we review 2 companies. One of the companies has shown signs of trouble, but they responded to a bad situation as positively as possible, and they get high marks from us. That company is National Shopping Service. If you haven’t signed up for them yet, be sure to read our review.

Our second review is less fortunate. It’s not fun for anyone when  a mystery shopping company is struggling to survive. Often, it’s the mystery shoppers who get the short end of the stick. Be sure to read our review to stay abreast of the situation going on with Nationwide Services Group.

As always, thank you for reading, and thank you for your support of the Magazine. If you have any questions or comments, please send them our way.
