The Mystery Shopping Club provides you with an extraordinarily comprehensive account of Mystery Shopping in the UK. It is a result of an immense body of work drawn from a huge amount of sources by a dedicated team of Mystery Shopping enthusiasts. This EXCEPTIONAL collation of intelligence is crucial for anyone with an interest in Mystery Shopping.

How do we know so much about Mystery Shopping? Our team has more than 30 years experience in the UK Mystery Shopping industry, both in a fieldwork and supervisory capacity. In the name of Mystery Shopping we have been on several holidays, stayed overnight in many hotels, watched dozens of movies in cinemas and assessed 100's of restaurants and countless bars.

We have also spent thousands of pounds in shops and supermarkets - of which a significant amount of the purchases we were able to keep for free.

The Daily Mirror says: "A useful contact is The Mystery Shopping Club. Mystery shopping agencies specialise in all sorts of things such as supermarkets and cinemas. You could get up to £100 for a day's work."

The brands below are just a small sample of companies that use Mystery Shoppers to check their service...

But is Mystery Shopping
suitable for you?

.02 | flexibility is essential
ensure you read this page fully before becoming a Mystery Shopper

Mystery Shopping regularly changes the lives of 1000's of people, but it's not suitable for everyone.

We will supply you with the information needed to help you decide if you want to become a mystery shopper. You may already be self-employed, employed, a stay-at-home parent, unemployed, a student or retired. Mystery Shopping is something that bolts on to your existing lifestyle, but you must be flexible and prepared to put in effort. If you are already a full time employee you will need the energy and commitment that goes with carrying out an evening's Mystery Shopping assignment after a full day's work. Most Mystery Shopping companies are currently recruiting, but not all applicants will be accepted - you will need to be motivated, good at keeping records, be professional in your communication and possess a good command of the English language. If for instance you misspell on your application, you would most likely be rejected.

You must own a computer, a printer, an internet connection and an email address as most jobs are booked out by email or online.

Most treat Mystery Shopping as occasional casual work, but many established Mystery Shoppers (and often other family members as well) are in the fortunate position of working as many hours as they can manage as they are so popular with the supervisors. However, becoming a full-timer usually takes up to a year and takes a lot of commitment.

The Mail on Sunday says: "It is estimated that there are over 187,000 Mystery Shoppers in the UK. The Mystery Shopping Club offers information and advice to those hoping to get involved in the business."
Why do business and
organisations use Mystery Shoppers?

.03 | maintaining service
it is not left to chance

Whenever you visit a major fast food restaurant or well known retail chain, have you ever wondered how they manage to maintain a consistent high level of service no matter how many branches they have and regardless of where they are in the world?

They all use mystery shoppers to pose as diners or buyers to evaluate the service at ground level. They need to know what customers think about them to help them improve their business. They need as many people as possible to tell them how they are treated and how they feel about their products or services. Mystery Shoppers are the eyes and ears of their businesses.

'B' Magazine says: "There are people employed by hotels, shops and restaurants to monitor their own service. In return for a short report on your experience, you can often get a free room, meals and clothes. You can sign up with The Mystery Shopping Club."

A huge percentage of well-known brands, such as the ones below, use Mystery Shoppers...

Is Mystery Shopping
something new?

.04 | over 60 years of service
a sister to market research

Mystery Shopping started back in 1940 and is now a huge part of the Market Research industry. It's a service used by the top retail outlets, restaurants, pubs, cinemas, theatres, travel companies, hotels, spas, cruise companies, airlines, amusement parks and leisure organizations.

The Independent Newspaper says: "The Mystery Shopping Club is an online support service for the UK spies. Virtually all UK firms now employ mystery shoppers. Just 10 years ago there were only 2,000-3,000 people working as covert researchers in Britain. Now there are nearly 190,000, working either full-time or part-time."

    On-Line Mystery Shopping
    Plus Much More

    .09 | And for something completely different!
    diversify and earn even more

    On-Line Mystery Shopping: We will also send you details of how to become an On-Line Mystery Shopper, testing websites for good customer service from the comfort of your own home!

    Discussion groups: Connecting people like you - consumers and service users - with research companies who want to explore your views.

    As a bonus, you will receive details of another excellent way to earn extra money. There is absolutely no cost to yourself and you will be rewarded for giving up your time (typically £30 - £50 for 2 hours work) and sharing your views in discussion groups or participating in surveys.

    Companies who manufacture products or provide services need to ensure they are meeting the needs of their customers, both in what they are doing now and in planning for the future. Similarly lots of organisations, commercial and non-commercial, need to understand public opinion and how this develops over time. Rather than ask their customers directly it is often more credible and effective to use a specialist market research agency to ask the questions.

    These agencies need to be able to consult members of the public to probe their attitudes, opinions and feelings on a whole range of issues. Sometimes they need to talk to a cross section of the public as a whole, whilst at other times they need to focus on specific groups, e.g. those who use a particular product regularly. To make the outcome of the research valuable to their clients, they need to select a range of people to take part who genuinely reflect the target group, showing the normal diversity expected within that group - e.g. a range of ages or ethnicity.

    Discounts and Cashback: You'll also discover how to get discounts and cashback from over 1000 online UK shops including Currys, Tesco, Boots, Littlewoods, Prudential and more. You will receive a £5 welcome bonus on your free sign up.

    We have a free members' Mystery Shopping Helpdesk!

    You will have free and unlimited lifetime access to the Mystery Shopping Club Helpdesk. That said, in practice, very little help is needed, as applications are usually very simple and full instructions concerning each project will automatically be sent to you. Nevertheless, we recognise there may be specific questions or concerns that you may wish to ask our opinion about and anyway, we would love to hear from you to find out how you are getting on!

    In a report that recommended the Mystery Shopping Club, Choices Magazine wrote: "If you love shopping, you will be pleased to hear that it's possible to shop for a living. In fact, it's a multi-million pound industry for market research companies who employ "mystery shoppers" to shop up and down the country - all in the name of customer service and research.

    There are a number of mystery shopping companies who organise whole armies of professional shoppers on behalf of retailers, pubs, restaurants, banks and other service industries. Their mission? To mingle in, look inconspicuous and file a report on anything from customer service to cleanliness in the loos."
