Mystery Shopping: How to Make an Easy £50 an Hour

I have tried so many money making schemes since I have been working on Mrs Mummypenny, some are good, some are far more hassle then they are worth (questionnaires anyone?? I struggle with those!).  This mystery shopping assignment, I promise, is a tried and tested way of making £50 that I highly recommend to people time and time again. And if you can make use of £50 (who can’t!) then read on about my favourite mystery shopping & how to make an easy £50!


A wonderful friendly company called Ragdoll run mystery shopping assignments for banks. They are constantly on the look out for people to do a mystery shop visit for them. It might be a mortgage application, or an insurance application, credit card application, any product readily available from a bank.

They provide comprehensive instructions on what you need to say and do and it will take around an hour of your time. If you can do the mortgage mystery shop the payment is a nice £75, most other products are £50.

The Mystery Shop Experience

You just need to behave as if you are a real customer looking to purchase the product. The meeting will be recorded using some clever spy like devices which you send back to Ragdoll (all postage expenses reimbursed) and then a few days later you call up to cancel the product, at no cost to yourself.

Very soon afterwards, once the recordings are approved a cheque will arrive in the post from Ragdoll. See what I mean, really one of the easiest ways to earn £50 that I have investigated.

  1. This one is a really good high paying one, they normally pay around £10 plus free products. £50 = lovely

  2. When looking for a job, I would recommend using the help of a reliable resource and writing a resume first. This is a very important document, especially when looking for a first job. Recruiters have only a few minutes looking through resumes. Therefore, your resume should make you stand out. This is my personal opinion, I hope it helped you.

  3. To get a job, I need experience, and to have experience, I need a job. I tried to break out of this circle, so I found the resource, where professionals helped me decide on the format of the resume and compiled the text of my first summary. I did not use slang expressions in my resume, or banal words that can be inserted into absolutely any resume, so it stood out favorably. Writing a resume was my first opportunity to leave a good impression, so I didn’t want to miss this opportunity and made the most of it. The result was not long in coming, and I was invited for an interview, and later I was chosen among many candidates. The experience of professionals in writing a resume helped me, and I am grateful for it, therefore I recommend this resource to everyone who writes their first resume.
