Super Coupon Woman’s Update On Brother and Side Hustles!

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for stopping by and reading this post. A few posts ago, I told how my brother was going to have open heart surgery and I was going down to take care of him and my mom. I quit my job three months ago and then got the news about all this happening, so I was unable to get a steady job not knowing what was going on, and started trying to do some side hustles and looking into ways to earn extra income. I am proud to say that my brother had his operation on October 22nd, and is doing well. He is in a quite a bit of pain and healing slowly, but that is to be expected. I started working with driveline merchandising this week and it is great because I can do it anytime during the week as long as I get it done by the due date. My mom needs quite about of care and attention so supervision is needed. I also have to have an outlet in this current situation, so getting out of the house is very helpful. I am ready to be back home, but still have two or three weeks to go. Say prayers for my family during this time. I cannot work any of the side hustles down here such as the mystery shopping etc, but am confident once I get in my own area, I will be able to make what I need without putting up with horrible bosses that don’t care about me and only care about their paycheck. I will keep everyone update on side hustle opportunities and deals for the holidays, because it’s November 3rd….Only 52 days! When all this started going on, I went ahead and got 90 percent of my Christmas shopping done so it would be one thing less I would have to worry about, and one person won’t tell me what she wants. So only two total to go…that’s ok, I have to save a little shopping for the deals anyway!

Happy Shopping!

Super Coupon Woman Side Income Progress Update!

So I told everyone I would update on my Side Hustle & Work From Home Progress. It’s been a busy week for me, last week I was on Vacation and next week I will be going down to take care of my family for awhile because my brother is having heart surgery. My goal is to work with no supervision, so I want some jobs to do at home but it’s okay if they are not 100% remote if they have flexibility. The best job for that is Mystery Shopping or Merchandising. These companies offer projects that are due within a certain time frame, so as long as they get done during that time, it’s okay to do whenever fits into your schedule. I was trying to make some extra side income before I go stay next week with my family. It was raining and next week seems to be where all the jobs are but that’s okay, I have been doing a lot of training on different things which will allow me to accept more assignments. On my past few posts, you will see that I have been trying lots of different opportunites, and some have not worked out. I am adding the ones that worked out for me along with new opportunities from this week so you won’t have to search for them. Please add referral id as: supercouponwoman@yahoo.com if they ask for one.

I am now certified to do on site business inspections, various auditing, and compliance jobs. I even found a copy that is going to let me work where I am going while I am there, and then have work for me when I am back home. I thought that was super nice. The company is: Driveline Merchandising Click on the link to see if they have positions in your area.

Trend Source Click on the link to sign up with Trend Source who has a variety of projects and lots to choose from. The have the onsite inspections and healthcare compliance shops but you do need to be certified which can be done by following the steps on their website.

IPSOS I got certified to do banking shops and the also offer a variety of other shops to choose from like smart phone inquiry’s, shipping, and more!

Intelli-Shop I love this mystery shopping company also. Plenty of shops to choose from as well as a variety and easy to work with. You do have to contact scheduler to reschedule, but I did so without any problem.

Sentry Marketing I have not used them as much as I should, but they have lots of different mystery shops to choose from. I will be doing one Monday for them.

I Secret Shop Has several shops to choose from including web and phone shops. Easy to use, I have done one for them and plan on doing more.

EPMS Mystery Shopping I am signed up but have not done one yet, they are apartment shops and pay $25.00 so can add up quickly. Reports will need to provide precise details. Some shoppers really love to do these.

So Once I am in a routine, I should be able to make a enough from each of these companies to pay my bills, I will always keep searching and will continue to document my successes and failures. If you are new to mystery shopping, keep in mind the more you do them, the easier they are. I have actually been a mystery shopper for 9 years, but am just now having the courage to try some of the new projects such as business verifications etc, so don’t get frustrated or give up. Just like a regular job, you will have good days and bad days where nothing goes as planned 🙂

Super Coupon Woman’s Less Than 100 Day’s Til Christmas Side Hustle’s To Try!

Hi Everyone,

Not to freak everyone out, but there is less than 100 days til Christmas! I have been unemployed since July 23rd because my company did not take care of an injury from a fall I had at the workplace and after 18 months. I just got tired of it hurting. Going through a little PSTD from bad treatment from managers I have had in the past so I have been a little nervous to jump back into a job that I would be unhappy with. I thought I would share some of my side hustles I have tried and continuing to try as I am looking for a remote work at home job since I may need to go down and help with my mom and brother since he is having surgery.

Off and on I have been a mystery shopper and have been doing some of those while I was off. I only like to drive certain areas so that limits where I choose from. I made about 250 in August, but if I was more open to travel I feel that I could make a full time living from it. The more companies you sign up for, the more chances to increase your income because some will have only a few if any to choose from, but that is only because there are so many shoppers and do not get discouraged as a lot will cancel and need shops done and sometimes they will even offer bonus pay to do them. Please keep in mind that payment can be anywhere from 30-60 days. Keeping a little notepad with shops done and the amount is helpful to keep track of how much you earn. I folder labeled mystery shopping in your bookmarks is helpful as well. I have been trying to different ones for the experience and to make me feel more comfortable while doing them.

Here are the current Mystery Shopping Companies I use They are kind of in order of my favorites, but everyone likes different things, so what I like might not be the same for you. What matters to me easy scheduling and rescheduling if needed and reports that won’t be rejected by the slightest mistake, they will correct you and give you tips on what to do and not to do for next report:

Other Side Hustles:

Lyft I got approved with Lyft in about two weeks and was excited to start, but I only like driving certain areas. You have to accept the ride and it does not tell you where or how far your going. This would be great for someone who drives a lot and feel comfortable driving in all areas of where they live. I should give them another try soon, great way to earn extra money.

Door Dash: My daughter has done this a few times, and I feel it is worth the time and effort. When we do it, we are going to do it as a team and split the money, highly recommend. Please enter referral phone as: 214-604-8842

TNG Offer’s Merchandising which goes hand in hand with mystery shopping. It offer’s a flexible part time schedule that you can do through the week and most of the jobs do not require weekends. I am working about 10-12 hours a week, but could pick up more. The pay is a little lower than I would like, but my arm is healing so that is good. Pay is $10.00 an hour. Once you have some merchandising experience, other companies will want to hire you…job security 🙂

Handy Pro Have previous cleaning experience or are you a handy man or lawn technician? Great way to pick up jobs in your area. My daughter works for them and averages around 16 an hour. You are allowed to bring someone with you to help clean the big jobs, you are responsible for paying them. I have done a few jobs with her, good way to earn extra money.
