I have not been reimbursed for whatever I buy when the HazMat shipment is refused. Spicy1 says, "They do reimburse for the items they ask you to buy." Have people actually been reimbursed?
Myst4au, yes I have been reimbursed. I only did a few of these as my preference is the dim weight shops but I purchased stamps for both of them. In one case it was 4 stamps, in the other case I bought a bunch of 2 cent and some 10c stamps. It came to around $3.

I was just paid yesterday for all my reg. hazmat shops from last round. I was paid $1.96 for my stamp purchases on all of them. I remember double checking my work before submitting these reports and having to go back and change where I entered the stamp amount, but I don't remember why.@myst4au wrote:

... but for an office products store or an independent shipping store or an independent copy center, the list is not very useful. At the large box office supply store, do you have to buy the item while standing at the shipping center? If so, the only item which might be available is a book of 10 stamps (the listed book of 4 stamps does not exist anywhere). They don't sell stamped envelopes.
I got an email response from the scheduler (she said that she schedules just the HazMat shops) and that I will be reimbursed for up to $10 for the cost of stamps. This is a direct quote "You may purchase up to $10 worth of stamps, and that’s fine."
Thanks Myst4aU...I suspected this might be okay but never wanted to test the theory. It seems to me they are being purposely vague as they now have done a few months of these shops with only having to reimburse $2 for 4 stamps to most all the shoppers. I asked the question multiple times with different schedulers and never got my entire question answered but basically, yes you can buy 4 stamps or an envelope.
By the way, I think they would also need specially trained shoppers like yourself to do the cool scenario shop they seem to have abandoned. Now that I know your specialty I understand your name and will be less likely to leave off the a.

Anyone know about the reimbursement for shipping on the approved ship shop? They want zone 5 - and I did 5 that went there. Of the ones that were accepted - it was over $10 to ship because I think some of these shops pad their rates. So will I only get up to $10 reimbursed?
Guess that would not be true with IPSOS.
