@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 Yes. Thank you. I am going to keep trying. Hopefully I can pick up some scraps from the other agents. Lol
@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)!
@Xiao I see other Kona offers on BYBE - does the one you bought qualify? If it shows up for Target, it should show up on the app itself.
@FelskyNY Unfortunately, no. The FA job from last night was at Jewel, and the last job at Target was before they had this BYBE offer in July. Maybe better luck next time!
@Xiao Oh -at least you made enough to cover the cost of gas and get a free beer (that wasn't seltzer).
