This Mystery Shop Pays $50

If you or someone you know has children then you recognize the importance of finding a reputable, trustworthy and educational facility. There are so many variables involved in discovering a high-quality early learning environment. It is like locating a hidden treasure when you come across one that you would actually agree to enroll your kids into.


Today on the Mystery Shopping Forum there is an intriguing assignment that is available for almost everyone to take advantage of. The shop will be conducted at a Jewish faith-based early childhood education school. Shoppers do not have to be of the Jewish faith to partake in this opportunity but you will be expected to “play the role” of someone who would be.


This is a three-part mystery shop that consists of sending a web inquiry to someone who is interested in enrolling a child in the school. Secondly, there will be a telephone call made to set up an appointment for a tour of the daycare facility. Thirdly, shoppers will attend the meeting and experience what the early learning center is like.


Shoppers must be between the ages of 21 to 65 and be available for the daycare tour Monday through Thursday. Don’t have a child? Not to worry, you do not need to bring any children along to qualify for this mystery shop. This shop pays $35 for the visit, $8 for the call, and $7 for the web inquiry for a grand total of $50.

  1. Ted Cohen says:

    So why is their discrimination on those of us over 65

  2. Robin Vogel says:

    Honestly? Given all the work required for this shop, $50 isn’t enough remuneration, as far as I’m concerned. I wonder how difficult the online form is? I wouldn’t put in for this shop unless it was bonuses at least double.

  3. Bob says:

    I agree with Ted, I have been doing Mystery Shopping and Merchandising for over 30 years, but a Co. is going to discriminate against me because of my age? I understand for tobacco & alcohol compliance and a very few others but I feel I am as capable if not more so because of my experience.

    • Susan says:

      They’re not discriminating, they’re just looking for someone who will blend in with the real customers of this business. If you’re too far outside of the “common” child-bearing age for that area, the staff would be suspicious.

    • Tracey K. says:

      More and more grandparents are raising their grandkids. I would think that any age over 21 would be appropriate for this shop.
