Helloooo MarkFL, KateLynn, Dani-Tigger

I'm ready to meet. How about Tampa, Starbucks on Kennedy Blvd across from Westshore Mall?
Time and date? Sometime between July 11 and July 15?

Any other Tampa Bay shoppers and forum lurkers interested?
We could start by meeting in the chat room to discuss.

Sounds good to me. I'll be there, once we work out the details.

I'm not longer in Florida but used to live near DeLand, so a big "Hello" from Alaska. Nope, I don't miss those heat strokes and am not giving up Alaska for anything to go back to Florida but I do have fond memories of growing up there. On the other hand, Alaska with its cool summers, mountains and incredible scenary is paradise to me. I never shopped in Florida and it's just a hobby here really but am enjoying it.

Hey Mark,

I guess that Tampa is a bit far to come for you. I understand, I don't travel to Lakeland much either. However, I don't know how flexible your schedule is, but I have a route to do in Lakeland next week. I have not picked a day that I am doing it yet, but if you want to get together for a cup of coffee while I am there, let me know and we can see if we can pick a day and time that would work for both of us.

Anyone else that is in the area and would like to meet and network, please feel free to enter your input on a good date and time.

Hi Katelynn, I am in Tampa too. I just did my very first shop yeterday after waiting only two days. I got a good evaluation on it. I have wanted to try this for years. Do you have much trouble getting shops here? I am still searching the web for sources.

Marian,
Welcome to mystery shopping! I love doing it. I do get a lot of shops in Tampa and in the surrounding areas. However, I didn't at first. Once you start applying with lots of different companies, you will see an increase in the amount of shops that you can find in the area. The two best sources that you should check out on the internet would be the MSPA site and the company list here on Volition. The MSPA site will allow you to do a search for companies that offer shops in your particular area, and the company list on Volition will provide you with feedback and contact info regarding that company. If you want to drop me an email and tell me if there are any particular types of shops that you are looking for, I will let you know if I know of any certain companies that offer those types of shops in this area. Good Luck!

Thanks for the info. I just went to that sight this morning, and clicked on the pop-up for RoperNOP. I spent about 40 minutes reading and taking quizzes. Then at the very end, I was asked for my soc. security number. Does this sound right? I didn't give it...at least not this time. I am a bit uneasy because so many of the sites ask for it. I caved, and did it a couple of times, but now I wish I hadn't. Any advice?
