Hang in there!! In my area, I actually DID see a "Make An Offer" option a couple of cycles ago....that's been the only time....otherwise, I have seen them raise the fee, but not to anything I would personally accept.@ShopWhisperer wrote:
This store has no cafe, no music department. Just books, magazines, gifts/accessories. I don't see any Make An Offer option. Just Accept or Decline. (Need I add it's still open?)
Obviously, I have shopper bias. I would love to shop a bookstore! I would not care about the number of interactions, the pay, or the number of characters in the narrative. I would just be in my version of heaven on earth! I am less willing to do grocery shops involving multiple departments, multiple interactions, and some narrative. The multi-department shops are probably comparable. I can do more grocery store shops. But I would want to shop in the bookstore.
Do any other bookshopophiles feel the same way?
All right I have my own entry for this topic. I just saw this today and unless I'm misreading it, this is CRAZY for the amount the MSC is paying
Multiple shops available at an outlet center - cover lots of shop in one trip!
For this assignment, shoppers are visiting various service establishments located at an outlet center. Shoppers who complete an overall evaluation must shop multiple stores, including retail and service stores, as well as food establishments.
Please include detailed comments in your narratives describing your observations. Also please make sure to get a good description of the center associates you interact with (Management, Custodial, Security) to include in your comments. Thank you.
Photos are required (front of store & inside) and must be uploaded when submitting results.
$20 for all that. Unless I'm misreading this and it's $20 per shop but I don't think so. Who would take this? It sounds even worse than the number 1 shop on my 10 foot pole list.
Actually I think it does because if it's a pain in the neck to return (especially if you have to wait a day or so) then you're less likely to return it. But you're right in that the numbers are the same.@LisaSTL wrote:
If the purchase can be returned and the reimbursement kept, it wouldn't matter to me which way they divvied it up.
