Never Doing a Papa Johns Shop Again!!

I've actually done their shops for years, for 2 different MSCs, but this weekend was the last straw. I just had a shop rejected b/c one of 4 slices was "not cut all the way through." Really? Really? Can we be nitpickier than that? I don't even like their pizza... Continue Reading

Anyone have Papa John's shop deleted (rejected)?

Question about pizza shops on National Shopping Service.

When I look at the list of the pizza shops for NSS, the titles all say delivery. Marketforce does these also, and at some point, when the shop has been listed there for awhile, they change it to delivery/carryout. Does NSS do the same thing? I don't live in a... Continue Reading

Sandwiched Pizza

OK I just accepted a pizza shop that usually requires a bunch of photos, which has been annoying but usually it bonus' pretty well since people freak about the amount of required photos.

Papa John's strange report question

Hate to admit it....but the "pizzazz" seems to be gone for me...

I've been shopping for quite a while and have soooooooo enjoyed a lot of it. The challenge of seeing how many I could do, how much I could make...etc....but.....shrinking fees, irritable schedulers and just plain mean reviewers have taken a lot of that away. The "older/nicer" people seem... Continue Reading

Papa John's rotation

Domino's Pizza

Ever since Papa John's got away from the MSC that sometimes paid me $30 to buy the pizza, I have avoided the PJ shops. They're too much trouble for $5. Instead, I've been buying Domino's gift cards at Kroger and getting fuel points. The pizza is okay (usually) and... Continue Reading
