There's nothing better than getting a free meal out.

What you need to know:

  • If you sign up and are accepted you could get free food at places like Wagamama, Giraffe, Carluccio's and Prezzo.
  • All you need to do in return is carry out specific tasks such as buying a specific product and then write a review of your experience (can take up to 1 hour).
  • Some students in the past have been known to dine out for free up to 20 times a month!
  • Applicants do not need any previous experience just a camera and good written English skills.

Find out more and find out if they are recruiting for your city via the link below.

Once you dine out, you'll get reimbursed for your meal 3-4 weeks after your visit.

What is Mystery Dining?

Mystery Dining is where someone is prepared to write a report on their dining experience in exchange for compensation (or a free meal!). It's a great side hustle for students as it'll mean you can eat for free at your favourite restaurants. Often, it's encouraged by the company to visit restaurants you'd usually visit, as you could give a more detailed write-up to the company.

Mystery Dining is free to do and you can choose to accept as many or as few visits as suits your schedule. Obviously, the more you accept, the more you can eat out for free! Just make sure you don't overstretch yourself and ensure you can continue with your everyday life commitments.
