Summer’s here, so why not get paid to go to the movies? Movie theater’s have long been a place where companies need certain information verified. They especially want to know whether the right trailers are played before a movie starts. These are called “trailer checks.”
According to our research, the following companies will pay you to go to the movies as a mystery shopper, or an auditor.
Keep in mind that it is possible that none of these companies will have any assignments available to you. If that’s the case, keep an eye out for future assignments from them. They may have more available during their next round, or they may take on a new client in the future.
If you want to get paid to go to the movies, I recommend signing up for all of these companies, to give you access to the most opportunities.
Certified Field Associates – This is one of the biggest such companies. They are very established, and owned by Market Force, one of the major players in the mystery shopping industry.
