Yep they do go pretty fast. I wonder if we're competing for the same locations. I'm in SE Mesa.

There are 3 kinds of lies. Lies, Damn lies, and statistics.
Glad to hear it!!!! I never go into Phoenix or further west to shop. Central Scottsdale and Queen Creek are about as crazy as I get. I've thought about doing some bonused shops in Casa Grande and Florence, but I can't quite make myself drive that far. I think part of my problem is that I get lost very easily and even with GPS, I still have trouble if a location isn't really obvious to the eye. The Cafe Zupas locations I shop I still have trouble finding them even though I've been there a few times.

I've contemplated Casa Grande quite a few times too (I have family in Tucson) but I just hate that drive, one accident on the 10 and you're screwed. You shouldn't get too lost there or Florence, they're so small LOL maybe drive in circles a few times, but not totally lost
I must have done a really good job on my route on Sunday. I have gotten eight more emails this morning asking me to do more! AND, they are doubling the payment! That's $4 plus reimbursement. I am just going to have to put together another greasy Sunday! I must have the digestive system of a python... I haven't hat to eat since Sunday, so this route means that I get a WHOLE WEEK of food in one day!

Best. Shop. Ever.

OMG I needed that laugh smiling smiley
I read a descriptionof one type of JITB shop. It requires a reimbursed purchase and images of landscaping and indoor & outdoor menu boards. I think there five or more required images. For other ff places, there are shops just for menu-boards which pay more than this shop. Is this JITB shop at least two shops mashed into one?

Just yesterday I had Jack in the Box. But not as a shop. I would rather pay a paltry sum for food than to deal with a shop report, any report, for peanuts. Pay me, as a professional, or don't get my professional work.

I consider the low-ball fees being offered unprofessional in themselves. If I was the MSC, I would tell the client to take their business elsewhere if they don't want to pay the MSC enough to extend respectable fees to shoppers. Still, it is entirely possible that Jack is paying a respectable fee to the MSC but the MSC is pocketing $$ in order to dine at fancier places than the guy with the perfectly round head runs.

I also get a ton of emails every day but I just delete them. I understand where the MSC is coming from - they saw the chance to get a big name client and have a ton of visits available. They took the client and then realized they were "hosed" by the fact they undercut everyone else so much they couldn't afford to pay shoppers to go there. I have ZERO desire to go for FREE and from the sounds of things anything less than about $8 fee isn't worth it, too.

The way I look at it: You GOTTA look out for #1 or else you are #2 and we all know what #2 is
I woke up this morning and got about 5 emails from this MSC, from many different schedulers, all for this visit. Different headlines and all and trying to "Glamour Up" this "Pig" as nice as they could. I deleted them all thanks to all here saying how awful these are
How hard is it to get a picture of the inside menu board? Do the prices have to be clear? Thank you.

Lol maybe next month they'll be up to $5 a pop
Well, we're now up to $4.00.
I came here to complain about all the emails too, but now you have me feeling sorry for the MSC lol. I wonder what they'd say if I offered to do the 2 here WITHOUT any pics. ??
I am so tempted to tell the MSC my minimum fee and to please refrain from spamming me until they are ready to talk business.
There are shops for burger king and mcdonalds that are paying $6 flat. Someone is taking those here too. I feel bad for them. If I was out of work and had no savings I would do it too, I guess.
Burger King! That's another email I get that is really starting to bug me. Just got another this morning and expect I'll see at least one more today.

I've done a few of these and really they aren't bad. I am only doing lunch shifts within a small radius of my workplace so they are not out of my way and I need to have lunch somewhere so better to not have to pay for it. Takes about 10 minutes of work and taking the pictures is really not hard. I would pick pretty much any food shops over it but I am missing a lot of shops due to being banned from Marketforce so this is an ok substitute.
I just noticed this morning hat the fee is up to $5.00 on some of these shops. I'm still not interested but it MIGHT be worthwhile for some.

$5 on shops after 9pm. I have to be out the door by 4:30 so I'm sleeping when these shops are done.
I am glad they are bringing up the fee, but I am still not interested LOL especially at the location close to me, I would not go there after dark and by myself for any amount of money

Don't go too far into Queen Creek. That's my territory. LOL

Shopping central Arizona.
I'll really be raking in the dough (and grease) with this weekend's route!! Can I hit fifty stores on Saturday?

Saw a breakfast one for $5 now also. Too bad I cant order the chicken fajita and bacon cheese fries.
Just got an email from scheduler asking why the shops are not being taken. Easy answer - $$$.
And 1 hour submittal requirement.

The last thing we want to happen is have this Jack in the Box project set a precedence on the expectations on future projects.

Shopping the Greater Denver Area, Colorado Springs and in-between in Colorado. 28 year old male and willing to travel! Badged for Denver International Airport.

Yes!
They are now going for $12.00 to bad all the ones in my area have been gone for a few days now. Oh, wait a minute maybe it isn't too bad that way I will not be tempted to take one.
