Where Are You Shopping Today?

Dawn,
Are you sure that the guidelines do not say, or at ;east imply, that you need to depart while your vehicle is parked? Sitting in your vehicle is like declaring to the security cam that you are a shopper.

How are you doing?
Today- truck stop!
We are at this place once a week for gas. I could not believe they are shopped. It's like everything is shopped.
Buffet
Fast food
Store
Pumps
They are paying $40 for the report and $40 reimbursement. I hope I can finish the report tonight without being up too late. I leave the house at 5:20 AM for work.

Niner, it's times like this when you may want to ask for a 24 hour extension of the report deadline. Best though, to do so before the shop.

@walesmaven...I thought it was odd too. I doublechecked the guidelines 5 times for the parking garage shop and it literally stated you can sit in your car for 40 minutes.

I think the main concern was just shopping the cashier..with good reason

She told me double the cost for parking but changed it to the right amount just before I paid her.

I guess if the employees did the right thing all the time..we all wouldn't be mystery shoppers????

Shopping Idaho and Oregon/Idaho border region.
Today is car wash shop and a last minute add on drive thru job since its very close to the car wash shop..both are partial reimbursement but have a decent job fee in my opinion..only bad thing is the drive thru is a dinner shop. I think the more I do this,the more I like the lunch shops better.
Simply because you can get the shops and reports done much earlier in the day if they are pretty easy shops.

dawn,
Whoever is the client or MSC they are a bit nutty if they tell you that for a cash integrity shop. Attendants routinely walk through the garage and/or look at the security cam pix. It looks like someone who does not rally understand the parking industry designed those guidelines.

Good point. We should get there at 4 PM, I originally thought it said 6 PM. I will have two hours in the car back home, and some time when we get home. It should be okay.

Update- three and a half hours to complete the report, but it's done!

Today was Applebee's. The shop was perfect! Instead of the 2 for $20, I got a full rack of ribs. They were great!

Doing an investment counselor shop across the county from me. That is located next door to where I need to take 2 electronic devices for resets, down the road from where I need to go to the Verizon store to have them exorcise the imps from my phone, and across the street from my favorite bagel place. Unfortunately, it will be POURING rain all day.

Pace yourself. You can’t outrun a bad diet.

I would know.
Saturday
bank phone shop
bank deposit shop
Applebees
Car wash

Sunday
bank phone shop

I was waiting for a clothing store and barnes and noble
But I waited too long and someone else grabbed both. I was really surprised on the Barnes and Noble..as it was only at 13 dollars job fee.

I might add on a couple of in person phone shops...maybe.....

@bgriffin,

Do you just travel all over the place doing shops?

Yes/No

I do not shop when I'm home for the most part. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, although I will sometimes pick up quick easy shops if I get bored and sometimes when one of my big clients needs a favor. Most of my long routes where I'll be in places like Southern California or Denver will be prepackaged routes of shops that will never see a job board. I'll sometimes add quick easy shops to them but for the most part it's a single client route.

No shops this past week... was busy with major resets for my merchandising job.

Next week I have 2 apartments on Tuesday during the day and 3 darkness shops for yellow and blue gas that night.

Then I'm off to Asheville, NC to present a teacher training on behalf of the non-profit I work for.

And to buy a bunch of fabulous IPAs to smuggle back to Utah in my luggage.
Today was 4 apartments, i'm taking the rest of the long weekend off.... been a tough week over here
One little, itty bitty, teeny weeny merchandising task.. it was so small that I'm not certain that it was an actual job.

I have a Roti shop scheduled for lunch tomorrow. Friday is a gas station with a $10 gas reimbursement.

There is a series of gas station shops that I do every week. The shops for November are inked. This new scheduler calls me with an enticing $7 bonus for locations she needs to fill. I had been on the job board earlier, and only saw one location. It's one that I refuse to do. Scheduler mentions a desirable location. I give her a date. She says, oops, someone snatched it up. She puts me on hold looking for other shops. She comes back with two restaurants. I decline due to the timing: weekday lunch. She knows this. She comes back with one last gas station: the one in the undesirable location. I think that was her ploy all along.

mON 11/12 NOTHING. IT'S A HOLIDAY, VETERAN'S DAY.

Ironically, my spouse works at an int'l company, is a vet, and doesn't get off ;(
I actually had a busy day. I rarely do four shops in one day!

I did a gas station shop, an electronics shop, a car dealership and TXRH where my veteran husb and I had a date night smiling smiley

Wednesday, I am also doing four shops....glad to be picking up more!

But...I felt a little intimidated to do four in one day...details getting confused in my mind, etc was a concern for me. Also, getting the reports done on time, since husb and I were "out" for a little while. Got home at 11pm and first shop was due by 11:59. I got a "late shop" notice while I was working on it, but got it in a couple minutes later

(And I know most of you guys do 4++++ shops in any given day. I envy your skills!)
Mortgage shop and a local Halal deli for lunch. I light day but nice pay !
