    Does anybody have any experience with this? http://www.cineplex.com/Global/FeedbackZone/MysteryShopper.aspx

    If you watch a lot of movies, you could potentially save a lot of money, but it's ridiculous how Cineplex would charge a $50 membership fee per annum. Usually companies hire external companies that PAY mystery shoppers, so it surely feels a little unfair. I understand that you do get to watch a movie for free, but at the very least the membership fee should be waived.

    I've looked through their FAQ, but would like to hear about how restrictive they really are. How flexible the passes they give you are, what kind of time frame you are given for assignments, etc.

    never had any experience with them, but does sound like the "membership fee" should at the VERY least be waived! absolutely ridiculous that they should be asking people to pay them to help them do a job. I do not know of any other companies that do such a thing as asking secret shoppers to pay a membership fee.

    I've done some mystery shopping before and never been asked to pay a registration/membership fee, sounds a bit fishy. They're supposed to be paying you, not the other way around!

    I'm curious, how do you become a mystery shopper?
