@French Farmer do you think $18/$20 depending on the size of the store is reasonable? That's about what I would be comfortable doing a shop like that for.
I agree. However, I do have a friend who fed her family net free and got fuel points to fill up two vehicles, one a truck, for the summer a few years back. To her, doing 10 of these shops over a couple days, matching coupons and our having mini-grocery wars at the time, it was so worth it! We devised a quick way to keep track of conversations, descriptions and names so that it was almost a game. Eh, when the deals dried up and I got busier, I decided they were a pain. Now I know people that work in several of them in my area, so I won't do them. My decision.@French Farmer wrote:
These shops might be worth it if they were in the $35 to $40 range. There is just too much time invested in the shop itself and the subsequent report is long and tedious.
