I've been 'lurking' for several months now, and decided I needed to finally jump in here and get my feet wet! I've enjoyed reading what all you fellow California shoppers and merchandisers write. I'm Central California, Bakersfield. I've been shopping since August in Bakersfield, Taft, Shafter, Wasco, Delano and will soon be merchandising in those areas plus Visalia, Porterville, & Lake Isabella. I know there are more shoppers here in Bakersfield.... because someone else always gets the Panda Express jobs that I try for each month... At least somebody gets to eats there.

Now I only do shops that pay within 2wks to 30 days.

Still waiting for pay from Lookin4bookin a digital shop I did 08/25/2005.

I have been a shopper for 1 month now and am enjoying it very much. I live in Costa Mesa, Ca and shop just about anywhere in Orange Co and will go into LA County for some as well depending on how far and how much .

I am in Sherman Oaks, CA. I have been a Mystery Shopper for about one year. I have been reading the threads, but have not participated. I just thought I would say hello. The messages are really informative and I enjoy them. It is always good to meet others that I doing the same thing that can offer good advice and ideas.

I am one of the few (it seems) from the East Bay and Northern (towards Redding) CA. Well no wonder I can do so many jobs, nobody does it in my area.

I went to one of the MSPA conferences and I had a wonderful time! It was so much fun exchanging stories with other shoppers and I met several people who live in my area and have even done the same shops! Small world.

I’m in Los Angeles and new to MSing – just started in November. I get the feeling from the threads that it use to pay much better a few years back but, so far, I’ve enjoyed the shops I’ve done.

This forum has really helped me learn more about the different companies out there and potential pitfalls. THANKS RAY.

Any one else “Going for Gold” in San Diego this month? If so, I’ll see you there!

Being a "little old lady from Pasadena," I don't go far afield, shopping mostly west San Gabriel Valley. Anyone else from this area posting?

Hi Carol and Pam,

I live in Vista, but only shop a few times a month. The shops I do tend to be in Vista, Oceanside and Carlsbad.

Hi everyone!

I shop mostly the Los Angeles area and have been shopping for 6 years now. I used to shop alot more but have started becoming picky due to low shop fees and high gas prices.

Hi there everyone. Just started Mystery Shopping recently and thought I would introduce myself. Another California person. I'm SF/Peninsula and Marin County mostly though. Hope I don't upset too many of you out there!

Hi,

I live in Orange County and shop the coastal cities. It would be nice to meet another shopper in my area. I'm not certified yet but I get a good amount of shops. I'm a stay at home mom who shops when the kids are in Preschool or to take my husband out to dinner.
