What's the required sandwich for Arby's this month?

I really wish the description would tell you the required sandwich. I'm assuming due to Lent it's the fish sandwich which I won't eat. Has anyone figured out what the sandwich is this month?

I did one recently and it was really good and the report took maybe 5 minutes. Always better to make money but a free lunch I enjoyed and an easy report made this worthwhile when I don't have any money making shops to do.
I agree that a free lunch is always good. I try to get one of these when I'm out and about doing real money shops.
Question.

Am I allowed to remove stuff on theses sandwiches or do they need to come as is? Like replace the cheese with American cheese or get it with out the cheese. Get light Dijon sauce? or get the sauce on the side

Sometimes they put way to much sauce on the sandwich for me.

Thanks

Dang, I wish Arby's here were shopped. I'm signed up with a bunch of companies so more than likely I am with the right company but they just don't MS here.
The guidelines I read said you had to take the sandwich as is with no substitutions. I did not take it for that reason. The picture of the sandwich would have told the truth!
Yes, and it's a timing issue. If you have modifications it could affect the time in which you receive your food, so that would be wrong.
How can replacing one slice of cheese with another slice of cheese effect the timing? I'm just wondering.


Thanks.
Although substitutions or special requests might affect timing, I think another main reason why they don't want shoppers to make changes to the standard prep of the sandwich is because these shops appear to be testing whether the stores are preparing the sandwiches according to corporate specifications. There's a question about whether the correct ingredients are included, as well as whether the sandwich is packaged in the right clamshell box with the correct indicator chosen on the box (e.g. "LTO", "Deli", "Special" ). The shop is part of their "We Make it Right" evaluation campaign, so I'm guessing Arby's wants to ensure their stores/franchises are preparing the LTO sandwiches correctly. A substitution wouldn't fit the "standard preparation".

I did one of these yesterday, and I actually enjoyed the sandwich (I got the Turkey one). My total (with tax) for a small combo came out to 1 cent over reimbursement...$8.76, lol! Although I do wish they still had a fee, it was a nice meal.

SStsau.

That makes cents. When I looked at the web site they look so good. It seems liked I had them before or something similar.

Since you were one cent over I wonder if they will direct deposit that one cent in to your account smiling smiley

The commonly-used cheese is likely positioned for quick access in the kitchen. Other choices are available, but may not be set out in the same way. So cheese A is right on the sandwich board but cheese B and cheese C are in a reach-in.

Also things are made from muscle memory in a fast-paced kitchen. So any modification may force them to pause / hesitate briefly while making it, adding time. Or worse yet, they may make it wrong then catch it before it goes out and have to remake or rework it...adding much time.

True dat worked in many a kitchen and muscle memory rules.
I did the shop and my total with the small meal was $ 10.49

My meal was good.

On side note: since I followed the guidelines it says I will be reimbursed the full amount (in 2 payments) but on other shops I do for them I won't be reimbursed? Why is that

I am guessing, and I could be wrong, that the client has agreed to pay the additional amount to make the shopper whole for a SPECIFIC meal purchase. Arby's shops specify exactly which meal you must buy. On most other shops, there is not a specific meal. Within limitations, the shopper is permitted to select which items he wants to purchase, and he can usually get the meal and stay within the reimbursement or he can spend a bunch more than the reimbursement, depending on what he selects. For example, on one drive in shop, the reimbursement is $7.80. If I buy breakfast, I am always within the reimbursement. If I buy a regular size hamburger, fries or tots, and a large drink, I am at $7.78 including tax. If I buy a regular size coney and tots, I can get an enormous sized drink or a shake and still stay within reimbursement. However, if I choose to buy a double burger or a foot long hot dog, I will exceed the reimbursement. I think the difference here is that in Arby's case, the shopper is locked into the choice of meal and with other shops the shopper can choose a meal that is within reimbursement or can choose a meal that will cost him extra.
I was out of town an few weeks ago and I did an drive in shop and my meal was like $ 8.09 with tax.I got the number one meal but the tax was higher than in my area. I was going to get the bacon club toaster (which is on the menu where I was but not in my area) but that was $ 7.99 I believe before tax.

If I happen to go over my limit am I allowed to asked for reimbursement on the drive in shop?
If you're talking about Arby's, it's automatic.

If you are talking about the drive in and park in a stall and maybe get your food roller-skated out, no. You're over, you're out of pocket.

I have PM'ed you.
I did the shop today and opted for the BLT. That sandwich tasted so good!

Just had the sandwich as well (thank you CashApp for adding a $5 non-taxable profit at least) with roast beef and though it literally tasted like their usual sandwich plus lettuc, tomatoes and bacon. Covered lunch on my lunch and gonna do the same for dinner here soon.

Shopping the Greater Denver Area, Colorado Springs and in-between in Colorado. 30 year old male and willing to travel! Badged for Denver International Airport.
I found a couple and wanted to do them yesterday but they were locked by another shopper guess somebody wanted the $5.00 they were paying for a dine-in meal.
I happily did it for $5. They disappeared from my map at $5.
