I Shop Safe shops

Yes well, that is what they are saying but it is not working out that way. More like a limit of 3 I went and tried to add two more and they let me add one and when I checked they had taken one away that I had signed up for yesterday.

I did 3 today, and when I claimed the third one, all the others disappeared.

So it is now up to 5 total?
I have done two this past Friday I signed up for three more last night. But the 12 hour time limit caught me on one and then as I was finishing up another one it slipped away. So I was able to get it for later in the evening and I replaced the 3rd shop with a cell phone shop.

Great notice.
I think it is 5 total right now. I did 2 on Friday (which were accepted and paid on Monday), 2 on Monday, and after I signed up for one for today (Tuesday) the rest of the open shops disappeared from my map. I've completed the one I signed up for today, so 5 total. 3 are pending acceptance, and none of the purple available pins are showing on my map right now.
I have done a total of 4 and will look tomorrow morning for several more tomorrow, They are very easy. Since there is a such a variety of different kinds of shops, I wonder who is paying for the information?
There are 2 left in my area. One a coffee place and the other a hardware store. Since I don't drink their coffee, I wouldn't do that one. I'm trying to think of something to buy for $3 that I can actually use from the hardware store. Then I might do that one if it's left.

I did 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. Both of them are awaiting review. If there were certain items/signs present outside or within the store, a pic was required. No pics for items near the register. The only selfie I had to take was of me in a cloth mask for the certification.

Were you able to self-assign all 4 from Presto?
I have done a Walmart, a CVS, $Gen, A Walgreens, and an AT&T store. This should not violate anything because presto is not paying for them.

I have done a Walmart...
Was it any more difficult to do a Walmart than the smaller stores like CVS or Walgreens? I could have done a couple of WMs near me, but because they're bigger stores, I avoided them.
I'm not sure, and the ones I have seen says these end on May 15, which is this Friday. As far as when I've seen some in my area, whatever locations are available always seem to be there, regardless of the time, so I'm not sure if there is a specific time for any new ones. I'm not even sure if any more new ones will even be posted, since it looks like it ends Friday.
I just had to go back in and take pictures of the stuff that was needed. The separate entrances, the signs on the floor for distancing and the directions, and the hand wiping station inside the door. It is about the same thing as a Walgreens

I did two on Friday and three yesterday and then they all disappeared. So it appears the 'five' limit is total or maybe by 'wave.' Too bad, super easy shops!

Shopping domestic and international locations since 2003.
Today they said that they opened them up but not a one shows up. When I go to the web site but when I use the ap I see a dozen or so but I have forgotten my app login. But when I fixed that they all went away also.

I just got an email from them stating that if you have done five that is all you will get.

OK, thanks, 2stepps!
@guysmom The larger grocery store shops took ~10 minutes longer for me than a smaller square footage area (like restaurant for takeout).

I have appreciated how promptly Presto has paid for these shops (3 business days).
Is this correct? The only active shops are those that are purple on the map. If I click on any of the gray ones, they appear to already being taken.
I hope they will continue them since they were very easy and it is important to see if merchants are following the rules.
Yes, that is correct, Insight. The grey ones mean someone else has selected it. If, for some reason, they aren't done, then they will be purple again, till someone gets them done. The ones I have seen say they are due by 5/15, which is tomorrow. So I wonder if this particular project is coming to an end. I guess we'll find out next week.
The only ones in my area are all FF or restaurants. And they are open only for drive thru or curb side pickup. So I haven't even applied for any as you have to call to make sure they are open for inside service.
Well, if they posted some new locations in my area, I'd be happy about that, for sure! All that's left in my area are 4-5 locations that are already taken, and the pins are grey. So someone else will be doing them. Also, in my area, they were ending today. Maybe they'll be a new round next week -- fingers crossed!
Just a heads up...the locations around me now have an end date of May 18, so maybe they are extending the project? More places have started to allow customers into the store in my area, but there are still some locations on the map that I'm fairly sure are still only doing drive thru.
Yeah, I grabbed 3 of them but two were at a restaurant that only has the drive-thru open. Maybe I can grab some cell phone shops tomorrow who knows.
it looks like they raised the limit again...I was able to claim 3 more this morning, and after the third one, the rest disappeared.
I was able to do a total of 8 from the time they began the program to today (i just selected 3 this am).
Perhaps, this was part of the contracual agreement with the client, and maybe access to shops varied based on your region, history of doing shops, etc. Idk. However, I tell you I am sick of ppl selecting a bunch of shops with no ability to complete all of them during the time alloted and then they just keep re-reserving them, etc. This process definitely stopped those ppl in their tracks this time around. Sorry for the ppl who are responsible and can blow through alot of them during the time alloted. You didnt really get a chance to do that with this program. I wonder if this is how it will be from now on. I am ok with it as long as they can approve/pay as quickly as they did this time around.
