Have any of you ever heard of or tried that? I've been curious about shadow/mystery/secret shopping, but have been hesitant to get started. Mainly because any of the offers I see require paid membership. I realize that the free things we'd get to try would more than likely cover the initial costs... but since we're cutting all excess costs right now, we just don't have any free funds to test the program. I figured that maybe I could give it a try next year...
At least, that's what I thought. :o)
I just recently learned that the Services Squadron on the base here is running a Secret Shopper program. I heard it on the base news line while I was on hold the other day, so when a contact number was given, I grabbed the nearest pen and paper to write it down!
After telling my husband about the program, he said, "Well, CALL! And ask if I can sign up, too, or if it's only one person per family."
So, being the obedient and submissive wife that I am... I called. ;o)
The POC was very excited to hear from me, as she had been having trouble enlisting people to sign up! Well, not us -- we are all for that free stuff, LOL! :o)
More good news came when she said that both of us could sign up for the program. So, Monday morning, we will go in for a brief Q&A session, as well as our information package. Isn't God good? :~D
I'm really excited about getting to visit new places without having to pay for them... did I mention that we like free stuff? Maybe we'll be asked to secret shop one of the restaurants on base, hehehe! ;o)
*Here's to hoping!*
