The fact that independent shoppers in the Jancyn database can choose assignments even at a second home or at college is a big advantage. Our clients get top-notch reports and mystery shoppers uses their skills to stay active, vital, and purposeful.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 20.2 million young adults will be heading to college in the fall of 2015. In some cases, this may be hundreds or even thousands of miles from their primary residence. And as they do in early winter, many retirees (often referred to as ‘Snowbirds’) will make the trek from colder weather to their second home in a more a temperate climate in some of the southern states. It seems that having two permanent addresses is actually fairly common for many Americans.

San Jose, CA based Jancyn Evaluation Shops now offers mystery shoppers the opportunity to list more than one address in their shopper profile. Based on zip codes, the sophisticated software allows the independent contractors to be notified when they may be in radius of a shop opportunity. This additional level of notification means that shoppers always know what mystery shopping projects await them and they can plan accordingly. This is particularly helpful in the weeks leading up to the time they may be switching residences.

States Vicki Dempsey, Vice President of Jancyn Evaluation Shops, “This is, of course, a huge perk for mystery shoppers. But more importantly, it fits the needs of our clients, most who are national and can often require a certain demographic. For example, clients may need an alcohol purchase by a younger person for compliance feedback at one end of the spectrum to a senior posing to need a rental at a retirement community at the other. In addition, shoppers who prefer to choose assignments in a particular industry can become expert with those types of shops. In doing so they provide the most useful and meaningful mystery shop reports possible.”

According the CNBC the average cost for a 4-year degree is now $31,231 per year for a private school and $9,139 for a public school. Additionally, these figures are for tuition only and do not include room and board, let alone any extra expenses such as books, clothing, or dinner out with friends. It is clear that most young adults could use a few extra bucks to help subsidize their college career.

Similarly, many retired Americans do not make enough via pension, Social Security and savings in order to stay afloat.CBS Money Watch reported in August 2014 that more than one-third of working adults have saved no money for retirement. The Center for Retirement Research at Boston College also reported in December 2014 that “Retirement security remains a serious challenge.” For both young people and those retired, mystery shopping may provide one avenue of additional income.

Dempsey goes on to say, “The fact that independent shoppers in the Jancyn database can choose assignments even at a second home or at college is a big advantage. Our clients get top-notch reports and mystery shoppers uses their skills to stay active, vital, and purposeful. ”
