Well, this is a first. Today I was looking through some of the new mystery shopping opportunities listed on the Mystery Shop Forum and I found a very intriguing assignment. It appears that the original payment for this shop began at $25 but is now offering a $10 bonus, so it’s been boosted up to $35. The article continues to state, “If you need a little more, please make me an offer.” Wait, what? This is a first for me, I have never seen a mystery shopping company offer to “name your price” before.
The mystery shopping assignment is for a UTV Sales Shop. If you are like me, you may be wondering, “What exactly is a UTV?” According to MotoSport.com, a UTV stands for “Utility Task Vehicle or Utility Terrain Vehicle.” Apparently, a more common name for this vehicle is a “side by side” meaning that the driver and passenger literally sit beside one other. They are similar to that of an ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle) but are usually a bit larger with seatbelts for the passengers.
To be eligible for this assignment, shoppers will be required to visit a UTV dealership and pretend to be a customer who is interested in a buying a specific brand and model. The client wants an evaluation regarding the appearance of the dealership and the interaction with the salesperson. Shoppers must be between the ages of 21 and 59 to complete this assignment and there is no test drive or negotiating involved. Click here to find out if there is a shop available in your city.
