I've done them, also when they get to $20. Pretty easy. One associate interaction. You have to browse the store and look for stock outages and items that don't have prices. The latter is kind of hit or miss, because some items have the price on a sticker on the bottom, and you're supposed to turn over the apparently unmarked items to make sure. It's impossible to do that with every such item in the store, so I just check a handful.
1) Storefront required.
2) Front merchandise table required. (This can be the most challenging one, as an associate may be looking at you as you enter. Generally you can get the photo unmolested at some point.)
3) The worst of any out-of-stock sections.
4) The worst of any no-price-marked sections.
5) Receipt, of course, required.
The store is supposed to have a scent called "Citron Berry." Smell for it lol. You will be asked.
The questionnaire isn't bad, except for one question, "What did you find the most interesting part of the store, and why?" Gets old fast. I've gotten to where I just name the seasonal section and give a boilerplate answer.
Where on earth are you that bonuses ever got to $35? I'm in a quasi-rural area and $20 is the limit. If they're not taken at $20, they get taken off the board until next month.@Morledzep wrote:
I haven't done one since the bonuses stopped getting up to $35. They aren't difficult, I don't like them because of the interaction with the associates that are NEVER available.,.
There's a town 45 miles south of me where the POPshelfs never get taken unless I take them. Since it's not worth it to me to drive 45 miles for 20 bucks, I don't take one there unless I can build up a good-sized roster of shops there on the same day. Some months that doesn't happen and I don't go. I've seen three of them sitting, sitting, sitting at $20 on the board for this town, and then they all disappear. I can't imagine three people suddenly swooped in and took them all at once, so it seems $20 is as high as they go there. I've never seen them offer them for more than $20 in my town, either.@sestrahelena wrote:
I think there are areas that have no shoppers that are aware of this MSC. The one I did was $35 and had been on the board a while. Yet most other shops there, mostly offered by that Walmart of MSCs, get done at base or close to it.
Weird, here there are oodles of items for $1 or $2.@ArkLaMissshopping wrote:
I've done one. It was easy. I couldn't find anything in the store for less than $4. So, that overage came off of the pay.
