Several years ago, I did 2 restaurants where I forgot to take pictures of the food. Nice evening out Reimbursement would have been about $90. In both cases, I just redid the shops. Can the reimbursement be used as a tax loss when I do my expenses for my taxes?
I did a restaurant shop with EliteCX in May of this year and August of this year. When I asked about the reimbursements, they said that the ACH was rejected. They use Tripalti and so I checked my profile, and the routing number and account numbers were correct. I have e-mailed them and left voice messages. And at first, they said to check my banking information, but now I have not gotten a reply in a week. After 8,000 shops with over 20 companies, this is the first time this had happened.
I shopped the wrong Rent-A-Center once. It was less than a mile from my apartment. I just pulled in and did the shop. Got the required business card, went home to fill out the report. Really didn't think too much about the "wrong" address on the business card. Got the rejection notice a couple days later. Yes, there were TWO Rent-A-Center locations on the SAME road, just a block apart. I'd lived in that city for almost 20 years and never noticed.
I have also driven 150 miles round trip to mail a second package after forgetting to take a picture of the first one. I've shopped the wrong time period; ordered the wrong item; and waited til the last day to do a shop, not realizing they would be closed on that day./quote]
Last year I had a Cricket Shop. I was so sure that I knew where it was and I went in and completed the shop. I got home and opened the report and looked at the business card and I had went to a Metro PCS!! Back in the car...at least I noticed before writing the report, LOL.
I can't believe you would drive 150 miles...I would have let that go.
Can you deduct the shopper fee as a loss in addition to what you spent out of pocket for taxes?
I had a shop rejected because I ordered a beer and not a cocktail. I am still mad about it, because it was a not entirely clear in the guidelines and also, there were no questions about correct pours or anything. I was out about $100, because it was an experience shop.
I have done the wrong scenario for sonic. I have purchased the wrong items. I have shopped the wrong dates. Many stupid mistakes. Somehow, i got paid for all by contacting the scheduler and asking for help. Been lucky so far to get paid for my mistakes.

I have only had one shop out right rejected, it was a Papa John's Pizza Shop. It was rejected because the Pizza Photo was too dark, well the photo looked just like the pizza I ordered and it tasted just as bad. I sure did write that off on my taxes.
Did you ever have yourself convinced of something that was totally wrong? It's a good thing to check the address before entering just to be sure.
