Calling all freshers! We’ve found a perfect way to get some of your booze paid for, while making extra money on top.
If you’re 18 or 19 and look pretty young for your age, you could get paid to buy alcohol by Serve Legal. This firm is dedicated to checking whether staff in pubs and shops ask for ID when selling age-restricted goods.

If pubs, restaurants and off-licences are caught selling alcohol to underage customers they will face a huge penalty. This is why businesses go to Serve Legal. They facilitate undercover ‘visitors’ to go into businesses to be served.
It’s just like mystery shopping with one key difference. You’re ensuring that the person serving you is obeying the law and checking your ID.
You will buy an age-restricted product from a supermarket, bar, pub or club in the UK and Ireland. These jobs pay £20-50 (with bonuses if the visit is urgent).
