Now I see some are showing back up as mystery shops only. Good.
Yes, however they only reimburse you up to $1.00 for the in-store purchase so you may as well take your $4.00 for gas. At least I do.
I always understood it as: ($5 reimbursement)... In that, if you spent $4 in gas and $2 in the store, they would only cover $5 period. This explains the $3 in gas now and the remainder in the store would be up to $2 covered, as I understand it.@spicy1 wrote:

The guidelines aren't clear about the amount reimbursed for the store purchase specifically. That changed fairly recently, maybe a couple of months ago. It was a reimbursement of $1 for the store purchase, specifically, prior to the price of gas hitting the roof.
I've just been doing the routed ones with bonus' so I haven't looked at the reimbursed amounts. I have some coming up so I'll just spend $3 on gas and $2 on the store purchase and see if they reimburse the $5.
The guidelines say to get your gas first.
