What what color or shape is this company's logo/sign?
There are 3 brands within the umbrella so depends on where you are located. In my immediate area they are Orange & Blue (sometimes Red & Blue). I would have to drive a fair distance to red & white or red, white & black.
Here in Alabama I believe that we have all 3 brands. I know that I have personally done at least 2 of them. But I'm pretty sure I've seen the 3rd brand also. We need a way to describe them better.. One of the brands is a red and white oval. Another one is an Orange circle with a number. And the other is red and white highway sign with the numbers of America's highway. Their website shows 2 other brands that I've never seen before so I don't really know what their signs look like.
Zek, Thank you for sampling this new deal and taking the time to fill us in! I found the previous MSC's site and app difficult and slow for inputting reports so I imagined even Sassie would be more efficient, even while on site. The #4 secondary signage - I believe is in case there is more than one main ID sign. I think that had been required before as well, if there was a second sign.
NJ has all three, but the orange circle one is not common. The other two are so common that one of each sometimes appears a block apart or even on two corners at an intersection. Generally, they are the least expensive "name brand" gas station. (I do not consider retailers that sell generic "depot" gasoline such as BJs, Sams Club, or even Wawa to be "name brand" gas stations. To me, a key differentiator is whether the brand sells gas considered to be Top Tier (which has additive packages to keep your engine clean.) In NJ, the three brands do not add a surcharge for credit either and are often the least expensive stations in the area. Google "Top Tier gasoline" if you are curious. There are some surprises (at least to me) on the list.
I did a test drive on the new IPSOS gas station. No patronizing please for accepting a single shop for the current fee. I wanted to understand what is the same and/or different, to determine what shop fee will make sense for me and my business, and to share what I learned here on the forum.
For those who will elect to complete these shops, I hope you find this helpful.
Just changed to $18 + $10 reimbursement in my area today.
The instructions state that the date can be changed one time. It would suck if it couldn't be changed. Also kind of dumb. The phrase, "brightly lit" is in the instructions. Go on a overcast day, and if the photos aren't good, shop could be rejected.
I'll let you know. I've signed up for several. Used the furthest out date and plan to change when I get the right day and weather.
btw..I emailed the scheduler and she said they were seeking clarification about $9 or $10.
This was a good thread. I saw the posting today get bumped to $10 + $8 bonus. It peaked my interest a little more at this point, but after seeing all this, I think I can wait a little more. Problem is, there is no shortage of shoppers in the Southern California urban areas, so they might be gone soon at $18. I haven't done a gas mystery shop in like 5 years since I bought my Tesla. I can still take wifey's car to get gas though. Instead of doing gas station shops, I roll thru fast food drive-thru shops in my Tesla :-)
It wasn't exclusively on Presto. They were on the Sassie site, too.
