Ok, here’s another legitimate mystery shopping company, New Image Marketing. They’re based in Florida. They’re relatively smaller compared to some of the big dogs, such as Market Force, or Corporate Research, but they’re a national company, with assignments available all over the US. If you’re looking to earn some money doing mystery shopping assignments, then they might be right up your alley.
Feedback from mystery shoppers is good. One shopper said they “paid promptly, had clear instructions, and the shops were simple.” That’s a pretty good review for a company, which leads me to recommend that you do give them a try.
They are also known to offer decent ‘bonuses’ for assignments outside of your area. If there’s an assignment you want but its a little too far to be worth it–ask for a bonus. They just might give it to you.
In terms of the types of assignments that New Image offers, they have Tobacco Compliance shops, as well as gas station assignments. Which means, if you’re looking for gas station assignments, this is one company to check out. They do have other types of assignments, but it fluctuates. It is always good to occasionally check a companies job board to see which types of assignments they have, as it changes over time.

Scam Warning: While New Image is a legitimate company, there is a chance that scammers might ‘impersonate’ them in an attempt to steal from mystery shoppers. Fortunately, these scams are very easy to spot and just as easy to avoid. The red flags are obvious: A large check/money order, and the request to wire money or send a moneygram. Avoiding these scams is easy: Never deposit a check as part of an assignment, and never wire money. It’s that simple.
