She signed up to a website called and got going, reviewing stores, restaurants and other businesses.

The company took her reviews, then refunded her. So, she got that good stuff – including free dinner! Ya-hum.

And sometimes the company would pay her on top of that. Enough for an additional desert huh!

“It was so fun cause you felt like a spy undercover.”

She said: “I mean, you had to read the report ahead of time to know what to look for, kinda secretly take notes, and the report would take me, like, 30 minutes to write it up afterward.”

So, now we know – your broke – you can STILL eat out for free as a secret shopper!
