Depending on where you are, they do quite a few other shops. The car dealership shops tend to stick out since there's so many, but I've done quite a few other shops with them besides car dealerships.
Are they posting dealership shops yet? Nothing within 150-200 miles of me and there's usually 25-50 dealerships. Nada yet tho.

None for me, either. I need an oil change and they have ALWAYS had my dealer on the shop list. Did they lose a big client?
Yes

It all started at the border. And that's still where it is today. Someone killed Ramon Casiano. And the killer got away.
Dang. I bet it's the one I was enjoying. Often times I could get my oil changed and tires done plus a nice $20-$90 kitty to boot. I guess everyone with the auto shops is trying to move over to someone who reimburses the oil change only. That's how you end up with lower quality reports, too, though. BM reports are lengthy and tedious but I always felt like I could tell what actually happened, even when it was bad.

As far as I can tell the client is gone and only their luxury brand has shown up at another MSC. While it is possible they shopped different brands to different MSCs I don't see the likelihood of that happening as very high.

Haven't spotted the luxury brand yet, but I did spot a flat rate service type of shop for a different car entirely priced at $80. Says any service, any model except wiper blades and luxury cars. $80 would get me an oil change and put $30-$40 in my pocket so I suppose I may switch over to these guys for my oil if they carry SAE 5W30 full synthetic... I'm sure they do, though smiling smiley

They still have the contract, but they don't have the shops right now... They have 2 major brands... One just ended and now the other just started... and not all of this brand's dealerships are shopped... They are still shopping the luxury branches of the 1st brand though... I've been getting nearly daily emails about it and unfortunately, I don't drive a luxury car! lol When the 1st brand was running, I have 2nd brand and couldn't wait for them to open/... now that they do, my local dealership isn't shopped so I got the oil change done through another MSC that does a 3rd brand but accepts any brand vehicle...
Does this make sense? lol
I just did an electronics mass merchant mystery shop for them today that got quite technical. So, they definitely have different shops in different areas. I've been watching for an oil change for a month. I've got a couple weeks then I'm going to have to break down and pay out of pocket for one...waah!
I got an email saying the rest of the shops will be created the week of 1/9 so stay tuned.....

I saw a few more posted this morning. I was ecstatic. It's great to get those shops! I planned on using it to offset tires and brake pads for my disc brakes this year.

I'm seeing the new auto brand shops and with these, they let you shop with a diesel! I happen to have one of the new brand and one of the old so I'll be able to participate with the new client. But, as mentioned above, there are not very many locations shopped for some reason.

They also do some restaurant shops but they usually do not have a shop fee. They used to have Pharmacy store shops - which I loved - but they are gone.

Does BestMark only have car dealership shops or do they do other retail and restaurants?

They do electronics and food out our way. I thought it was a national contract re the electronics shops.
I've done electronic shops for them (computer/tablet inquiries) and restaurant shops. I don't drive so no car shops for me. I did one movie theater shop for them too. I've only seen that shop three times in the past 5 months, I guess that goes quickly. Oh, and I did a casino shop recently.
