I actually saw a couple within 200 miles of me with that bonus amount. It was not a typo because the bonus was already $75 yesterday. Unfortunately they were in areas I will not be anywhere near. So, definitely pester (nicely!) for that bonus and keep the email that stated it.

So the $100 one got assigned to another shopper? Now if you get that same location assigned to you, they're going to switch the date from what you applied for because there has to be a certain many days between shops.
Just saying, I am seeing on the job board different scenarios at the same addresses for the same dates, which cannot be done. And got jammed myself when I applied for a route. One of five got assigned for a different week, two weeks away. Luckily it was local so I did it without saying anything but it was not acceptable to me. The the next time they post dates then change them, I will ask to cancel whatever does not fit my schedule. They need to be clear on their dates, as do I. A little rant. Sorry.
The locations have to be shopped twice, with so many days in between. When I got the email and looked at the board, those locations were listed twice, with one showing $100 and the other showing $17. If you applied for the $100 listing, they should not have assigned you the other. It sounds like someone may have already snatched up the $100 listing. If that was the case and you really don't want to do it for the $17, explain nicely to the scheduler what happened and you should be okay, but do it asap.
I got the same email but the closest one that was "in my area" according to the email was 500 miles away. I would use the link in the email and make sure the one you apply to is from that email. I applied to and got a $25 fee for a $12 shop a few weeks ago. The same exact location was also listed on the website at the base rate. One was a leftover from August and the other was a new shop for September probably..both included the same due dates. Good luck on the $100 ones. I am seeing more and more bonuses lately. Either not enough people wanting to go inside during the virus or perhaps many like myself having my unemployment check lowered by the amt of my fee making it a wash or at the most earning $25 that week for fees that add up to close to $200
