Become a Mystery Shopper
One of my favorite, get paid to shop. Mystery shopping is nothing but shopping from a shop specified by the employer. Retailers like the Walmart, Home Depot and Kroger need to learn about their customer services, they usually do it by hiring mystery shoppers from all around the world. You can do it too. Just Google "mystery shopping opportunities" and you'll definitely find something to start with. But be mindful that actual opportunities don't cost money to sign up or don't need to pay up front anything. If someone is asking for anything to pay for the job, simply walk away. Try some where else, just to be on the safe side.
