second to none, stay away from them.

Maybe so, however where I live it doesn't cost exactly $5. Still under $10. No problem anymore. I don't do them. Thanks.

Truthfully, it's not as hard as it seems. I started off like everyone else with just a few MSCs and as more were added I developed a system that works for me. A spreadsheet keeps track of the companies and their payment terms while Roboform and Google Chrome save all my passwords. I also break down companies into categories in my favorites like "self-assign" and "application." Companies that don't have job boards are in a different folder since there is no point in ever checking their sites and then there are some I will never work for unless they call with a bonus so they have their own folder.

Actually I think many people have developed much better systems. Mine was created before finding a mystery shoppers community. After hearing about the MS Bible and Flash's spreadsheet I considered changing. I've just been doing it the same way too long and if it ain't brokesmiling smiley If I was starting out now I would definitely take advantage of some of the other methods.

Well a new experience with STN that has placed a damper on my feelings about this MSC! They take forever to respond to email and questions! That is really bad business practices to me. Really? 3 weeks!
I think it depends on the individual scheduler. Mine is great and always responds within a few hours if not sooner. Sometimes even on the weekends which always surprises me.
To the original poster:

If your poor grammar and lack of capitalization are any indication of your reporting, I can't exactly say that I blame STN for deactivating your account.

I've been shopping with STN for a couple of years and have never had any problems with them. To my knowledge, the doughnuts shops were always 60 days rotation in this area. I know that when I've tried to schedule them quicker than that, the system wouldn't let me do it. Loved the Toasty subs, but the location closest to me closed:-( I do agree that their pay could be higher on some of their shops, but they do pay on time.
