I have to admit I prefer the ones where I don't have to speak to anyone, but I can often get 3 done in an hour... £18ph is worth it!

I've found I get a better response during the convenience store missions when I announce myself as a mystery shopper rather than leaving the job title vague. In one case "that's a shame, because I don't get paid if you're unable to help" got some cooperation. No flying tins of beans, though sometimes there are advantages to being female and physically unthreatening - people tend not to start fights!

I’ve done about 50 of these tasks now, had 2 refusals. 6 permanent closures. I just dress a little smarter and smile. When I say I only need to take photos of their sweets they agree. I then ask the other questions as I’m doing it so they don’t realise it’s part of the task! Actually planning to do a few more tomorrow as they’re near where I’ve got to drop husband for a course. Planning my route means I can do 3-4 in an hour. And it’s easy money really!

Hello
As anyone else had the tea training exercise for Roamler. I got rejected on this but no specifics given. Has anyone else been rejected? It is also a pain as you can only do this in a Tesco. I don't mind the 1.5 mile walk ( I don't drive ) but to walk and get a rejection is dispiriting, especially as it could happen again. Sods Law it's not Asda which is just 20mins walk away! Wondered how others went on with this task please?

Is anyone else's rankings totally blank? Mine always has been and tech support haven't got back to me. I had an email saying I came 24th last month even though I only did my first assignment on 15th Nov so I'm evidently higher than I imagined.

Yep, it's not been working for a couple of weeks. I'm not bothered about my own ranking but it's useful to see if the other taskers in my city are doing much.

Morning! I'm hoping to grab a few j20 tasks today, anyone completed these before? Any tips on avoiding rejections? It's been a while since I've used the task apps. Thanks.

Follow the instructions to the letter - any time I've had a task based app turned down its been because I didn't follow what it said properly.

I dont do the task apps any more but did tons of J20 last year, very simple, go in, order a J20.. look for J20 branded stuff like drip mats,coasters etc... grab a pic if poss, as Gardenpea above says just answer the questions asked (Bear in mind you will most likely have to take a [pic of drink so dont start drinking till you finish the task)

Yes. I was rejected and really annoyed as I had to go to an Asda a bit out of the way but I asked exactly why I was rejected and got it cleared up. Just ask them. Roamler is one of the best apps I have. They reply so quickly and they are so nice!

Up here in Scotland the shopkeepers are just that little bit more mental.. i visited one for Roamler, cant remember the task, but it was not incognito... had the infamous Roamler LOA (something not worth the paper it is on) with me, spoke to the guy explained what i wanted to do, he calls out in whatever language he uses to the back shop and out comes 2 "brothers" who start tearing into me and telling me to get the **** out their shop, which i did with 2 of them "helping" me out the door... walking back to car had a tin of beans whizz past my ear.... they assume you are spying for a nearby shop...really not worth attempting them, very rarely up here do any Roamlers do tasks in small corner shops

I lost count of how many convenience store checks I did across the South, Midlands and Wales (no special trips). I had a handful say no, but no violence or threats of!

Probably helps that I'm young and female - violence against people like me tends to be less socially acceptable!

Hello, thanks for replying. I did do it again and it was ok. It was a silly oversight on my part!
