An MSC that emails a lot and doesn't usually have a base fee just started posting shops for Cosi, a sandwich spot that has a few East Coast and Midwest locations. If anyone does this it'd be nice to hear how extensive the questionaire is. A recorded phone call is being required, but the reimbursement amount seems pretty generous (easily enough for leftovers and/or a guest) and public transit is being reimbursed which is really helpful for those of us who don't want to drive to big city locations which can be most easily reached via transit.
In the DMV market, Cosi just happens to have about 8 locations that are within 1-4 blocks from garages that I shop regularly. So, while my vehicle is parked, I can grab lunch and be reimbursed for it. Heck, with the generous reimbursement, I can order enough food so that I will have leftovers to take home for a second lunch another day! (Note: keeping a cooler in your car is always a good idea for MSers.)

I did one last month. It was very much a typical shop for this MSC. The phone call has to be recorded but the photos aren't anything out of the ordinary. The parking/transit reimbursement was very helpful and made possible some other things that day. Food was great. They don't seem to have been posted again for August but hopefully they'll be back at some point.
