What is the easiest shop you have done?

For me it is the online shop for Rent a Center. Not the highest paying, but definitely the easiest.

5 minute bank inquiry' 5 minute report; $36

Based in MD, near DC
Shopping from the Carolinas to New York
Have video cam; will travel

Poor customer service? Don't get mad; get video.
Easy shops ... the Chili's shops a few months back were remarkably simple for dining shops, and provided a reimbursement that easily covered a meal for one, and could cover a meal for 2 if one were careful.

BankAtlantic teller shops were pretty easy, back when that bank existed, and since they did their own shopping, in house, they paid $20 for a shop that probably took less than 10 minutes in shop, and less than 10 minutes to report.

Used to have some interesting shops that required no interactions with people, but only taking pictures of a billboard ... that was pretty easy. I miss those.
Visa credit and debit card shops where I got to buy up to $10 of what ever I wanted from a non national chain store I choose and get a small fee too. Every year I stock up on my Indian and Japanese sauces, chutneys and pickles.
I love the BMA phone shops. I get them done quickly and they always seem to be automatically accepted..
WaWa. The report is done before I finish half of the sandwich.

The internet doesn't make you smart. It makes you good at regurgitation.
The one where I was supposed to meet a guy at a bank to discuss refinancing a home. He never showed up and the MSC company paid me the full fee for my trouble.
Phone shops for bank inquiry. While the client expects the employees to lay down the red carpet for you, the associates finish the call in less than a minute. Not bad for 7 bucks. Also, I did a web inquiry for $50. There was no response at all in the 3 weeks of follow up. The report was done in a minute.
Honny, what is "WaWa"?

And I've never met an "easy" shop. I have done a couple Field Agent "assignments" and they were the closest thing to "easy".

I love these, the report takes about 5 minutes. The chase rewards online shops are pretty easy also. My daughter can always spend $25 at Sephora.
I did a credit card application check at a jewelry store took less than 5 minutes and paid $25.

Those were fun. It’s been over 10 years though.
Gyu-Kaku's last month got 30.00 meal for one + 25.00 bonus +8.00 fee, easy report, full tummy...63.00 lunch for a 15 minute report two miles from home. Normal is an 8.00 bonus...

When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping....

Not always, Depending on who's looking at your report, they can make it invalid and not give you a chance to correct it. Many other shops do allow you to correct issues.
As long as you submit it correctly with the required photos and receipts, it should be approved.

Been there. There is no sign for a bathroom at one of their supermarket locations. I don't think there is a bathroom that customers can use. The report was invalid because I did not visit the nonexistant restroom.

I had 2 gas station shops where I got the receipts crossed. They denied BOTH shops. I explained what happened and told them I could fix it. They didn't care, both were invalid. I'm sure they fixed it and Market Force kept the money.
Sorry to hear that. They are very rigid with their reporting system. I had an issue that could have been fixed easily on their end but they didn't do it. Had an invalid shop.

Yeah, that one surprised me. NO NARRATIVE! I Felt a little guilty after for getting a really good bonus.

I hate those! Very hard to get a photo of menu board without getting revealed. Almost always I end up buying something to cover. Photos of drive thru can be hard to get.
This was fun until I had a store that had 26 pages of menus one time. The host just winked at me and left me alone after about 5 minutes.

Some shops I don't even bother making any effort to hide the fact I'm a shopper. There's no way to hide what you're doing. Just go in and do the job.
The easiest shop that I have ever completed would be something that I do on a regular basis such as buying makeup.
