@FelskyNY I have another FA question that I wonder about. I see jobs disappear at night when the stores are closed. Does the timer pause overnight? I didn’t select jobs since I couldn’t complete after stores are closed. Am I missing something? Seems I have some very active agents in my area. There are hardly any jobs available and when I see them they disappear almost immediately. Thanks for your insight.
@jlhersback The jobs disappear really quickly and the "timer" is real time, so if you can't do it while the store is open, don't select it. I've learned that if I stop to read it, I'm too late. I open the app multiple times throughout the day and try to grab it without even reading or thinking about it. The timer does not pause. A job may become available again because someone cancelled it. I've gotten a few food offers with less than 15 min to spare because someone cancelled it. Hope this helps.
@FelskyNY I thought there were more recent posts about FA but this is the only one I could remember for sure, so decide to post here.
I had quite an experience (like a roller coaster ride) with a try-and-share job last night, which I wanted to share.
I accepted this job, trying a 6-pack of Kona Brewing beer, in the morning and had 1H12M to complete by the I was leaving home after work. When I got home, I had 3 min to spare to complete everything! Luckily, I already uploaded the receipt at the store but I spent way too much time trying to find other jobs (eye spy) in the store and lost track of time. I frantically took a pic of the product and UPC, wrote my review and submitted before the clock ran out. I was still skeptical whether I’d be paid and reimbursed, so I anxiously awaited…
To my surprise, it was approved and I was paid! Phew, I’m not going to try multitasking again! I’m too much of an amateur FA to do that…yet😅
@Xiao I'm so glad it worked out for you. You know I love FA, but you can get caught up with shopping and then run out of time. I had that once with Hot pockets - or whatever the Jumbo tostino pockets were. I remember I had to cook them, taste them and leave a review - the stress! LOL But a 6 pack of Kona Brewing Beer was worth it I'm sure! Was it on any other rebate apps?
@FelskyNY Wow, you’re amazing to do all that while the clock ticking. I was lucky - all I needed to do was take the bottle cap off😂
I wish I was able to stack with something else but nothing that I could find. The specified store was Jewel (Albertsons affiliate) but the irony was Target is currently offering $2 BYBE and that’s the place I initially took the job for the same product last month. I’m sure they (the brand and FA) coordinate this, so you can’t double up but I was bummed to see that TC offer and the FA job.
Regardless, it was so worth the thrill and I’m hooked - off to find the next gig(s)!
