Shipping shops bonused?

If anyone hasn't checked the job board in the last few days, there are some shipping shops (must be leftovers from Feb. or something) that are actually being bonused! I nearly fell out of my chair, because I haven't seen the fees go up on these (at least nothing that shows on my job board) since the new-old MSC took them back.

The dimensional ones are going for $20 in a few locations, and I've applied for a regular box shop at $14. I have an Etsy order to ship this week, so that will be great if I get the assignment. It's actually too far for me to go normally, but I'm going to be in that area this week, anyway, and can make the location a stop on my way home. (Incredibly convenient if it goes through.) I think I saw one or two hazmats at $15. Some of the locations are in out-of-the-way areas, but many aren't. I wonder if shoppers are just passing them up???? I know I won't do a dimensional at base rate; now, I'd take one at $20, but there aren't any of the $20 ones close enough to me....

Thank you. I applied for a $20 one. That was the only bonused one in my 30 mile search radius. Oddly, one of the $12 ones is now bonused down to $0 (yes, zero dollars), which I assume is a mistake.

Shopping Southeast Pennsylvania, Delaware above the canal, and southwestern NJ since 2008
None appear to be bonused for California that I can see. Most of the shipping jobs for Ca are in central and Nor. Cal right now and all look to be reg.
I have not seen a shipping shop in my part of Los Angeles for over a month and the last were reg box ones. There have been none of the Dim Weight or Hazmat ones since the end of Jan/early Feb . Has anyone in Los Angeles been seeing those? There was one hanging around in Whittier for a while but that is not anywhere near where I live.
Unfortunately, someone else in my area must have seen and applied for this one the minute it hit at the higher rate, since I didn't get the job, and the turnaround on that was fast. Sigh....

There were a few stray shops for south Orange County / San Diego area left this week (even further from you) but that's about it. I think South OC/ San Diego was the last area to get Dim Weight and Contractor shops. I don't do those but I saw a chunk of them listed maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago. I'm hoping our area get some shops soon.

I wanted to like your answer but I do not like the answer that you have few shops as well....Hopefully that will change drastically next month or sooner and then I can hit like for you.
I was just about to post the same info. They all look to be San Deigo County. If I were younger or lived closer maybe a nice trip to TJ (since they seem to be close South San Diego).
