I saw, in my area, a subset of what I think the OP is talking about. I received an email that said the shop was paying $130, but when I clicked on the link provided in the email, the job board entry was only paying $110.
And had you clicked on the job board before the email arrived to thousands of persons the $130 shop may have still been available. I am not sure how the OP knows that all the jobs that were available were listed on the site. Usually they drop off once someone takes them. Sometimes they shop two times at one location so the one left is the one paying lower. Or the $130 shop could have been leftover from an earlier deadline but the newer shop at a lower rate has not been taken.
I’ve done about ten of these shops and, if it’s the same as the ones I’ve done, during the initial inquiry the dealership asks for an email and phone number, so they have your contact info. I have NEVER had a dealership not contact me (before and after the shop) once they have that info. If a shopper is claiming they dealership doesn’t have their info, there was a problem at the beginning.
Speaking of IntelliShop Dealerships..... I sometimes see Dealership shops on the board - but NO days available. There's one in my area for $100. but no days available. Now, they bumped it tot $105 but again - no days available. Why bump the price on a shop that may not exist according to their own calendar?
I just checked the $125 email. Job Posting lists $125 on it.I'm Instantly Assigned so unless the amount changes from the posting to the Shop Log, I'm presume it's the same.
