Market Force gas stations?

Is anyone else not seeing the usual long list of gas station shops/audits from Market Force this month? I'm in South Jersey and between NJ and Philly I usually see 50-100 at the beginning of each month.

I'm fairly new to MS, but I never seen a gas station on MF for my area. Its only been the burger shop, a hardware store chain, a general merchandise store and compliance audits for two different cellular phone dealers.
Same for Washington state. Only a few poorly paid audits in January and February. There's nothing for March.

I have quite a few in my area $10 and $12.50 Wasn't sure if these were worth the money so have never tried. What do ya'll think?

I'm assuming those prices are for mystery shops. $10 is too cheap for those mystery shops, and $12.50 is not even worth consideration for a revealed audit.
Actually, those two don't sound like Marketforce gas shops at all. I don't know what the $10 might be, but the $12.50 sounds like Maritz.

What are your policies regarding remaining activated? I have been signed up with you for about four years, but have not actually performed a shop for you. I am now deactivated. I've sent an email to the appropriate contact for reactivation and figure I'll see what's available once I am. However, I'm curious as to what your policy is.

I'm with quite a few MSC's and tend to largely video shop, but use other shops to fill in routes. I also make periodic trips to some pretty rural areas to pick up hard-to-fill locations. So, my work with most non-video companies tends to be sporadic.

What is the "CFA" side of MF?

Certified Field Associates. It's the other login button that takes you to the brown portal page. I just recently applied, still waiting for my application approval.

Is this what used to be known as the "purple portal"? I think I got deactivated by them about 10 years ago.
Not sure, I've only been with them for a few months. Its the side that does a lot with movie theaters. I didn't know that the CFA side did gas stations in rural areas until mfisherri posted above. I live out in the country, so I applied with Market Force CFA the other day.
The re-activation process should be relatively simple. If you weren't deactivated for an issue, reinstatement should happen automatically upon request.
I'll DM @MFJohnston, @ceasesmith, and @Walters Mom my direct email. If you'd like me to check on status' I'm happy to do so (or at least I'll try, still pretty new at this).
I got a response from their support center: They keep their files updated and, as a part of that, make sure that the information they have on their shoppers is current. The ID they had on file for me has expired, so I just need to send them a copy of my new ID card and a picture of a current piece of mail, such as a utility bill, to show a current address.

Thank you.

I believe I was deactivated for a reason, but I don't recall the reason. I don't think I ever completed a shop for them.

One of MF's quirky rules is that they will not allow me to shop in states other than my home state.
We don't have that restriction on the NY side as we do have some border assignments. We do however run traveling shopper QC reports and check up on these situations. It's a little different for CFA because many of the assignments are introduced or overt.
They don't allow you to shop other states? Wow. Are you in Nevada? I shop KS, TX, OK, CO, WY, NE, and SD for MF.

Yes, but it is a MF rule, not a NV rule.
The CFA side has movies, merchandising and audits. The GA team predominately handles mystery shopping and some audit cross-over depending on the program.
