FIVE GUYS IS BACK!!

The ones I get are $2 above base. I used to take them before I discovered bonuses.

Has anyone noticed that the fees offered by the schedulers are lower than the fees on the board? And they are stingy with the bonuses?

No one's received these lame offers by email?
Honny Brown, yes!

And it pisses me off. (I am addressing scheduler calls that offer less than what's on the job board). I always get overseas scheduler calls for 5G but before Covid I felt pretty confident I was being offered the board price and I'd negotiate from there. Several weeks ago I got a scheduler offer that was lower than the board offer. Luckily I had been watching the board and challenged her. "Oh! Sorry!" i got my price.

Yeah I'll bet you're sorry.

Stinks because in my brief shopping career I have always thought of MF as one of the more "fair and square" companies. This nonsense doesn't help.

I had 1 shop this Thursday - Sunday cycle. I got it off the board for lower than my usual rate and higher than what the schedulers offered.

Many folks are getting at least their pre-pandemic rates for these. Looks like $35 is the highest fee reported of late.
Just an FYI - I'm still getting my $55 about twice a month for a location in my general area. So $35 is not the tops, just for reference if anyone is trying to put in offers.

Where is this mysterious location?
That happened to me today. I was looking to take myself out for dinner. On the board there was a location near me paying $25, but when I tried to self-assign I was locked out. Fifteen minutes later a scheduler called and offered the shop for $12. I declined, asked for, and got the posted $25.

I started keeping a list on my phone for what I've done various locations for. I can quickly pull up the information when I talk to one of the overseas schedulers.

I managed to get $85 for a very remote "difficult" relocation about 75 miles away last month. I'm not usually a route shopper but I was able to get a few other shops there and back and really couldn't resist getting that kind of cash for such an easy shop. Now when the calls come I point out I got $85 last time -- the schedulers seem very surprised when they look it up. I've yet to get it again, but I also haven't made a big effort and there aren't too many days I could go so far. Another "difficult" location very close to me is now always paying $39 (I wait til it hits $35 and then make an offer or ask the scheduler for $39).

Hello,

Any chance to use a coupon for online delivery? I just went to my Doordash and they give a coupon $10. I would like to use it but afraid to mess up with the reimbursement.

Anyone used the coupon for delivery company?

Thank you in advance.

They say that you're allowed to use coupons from the delivery company but I'd be surprised if they reimbursed you more than you paid.
Thx for a quick reply.
I am not planning on getting extra money... but for extra $10 I can order a full burger on top of my required order
(little burger, little fries and drink, around $14)
It seems doable, but maybe just for me?
why not just order a burger in a bowl instead?

As it is I take my burger home and slice off some of the top and bottom of the buns.
Delivery shops are up to $20. I'm surprised since last time I took one they went from $15 to $18. This time they went right from $15 to $20.
Scheduler: $14
Job Board: $15
Samantha: $18
My pre-COVID min: $18

We definitely live in strange times!
