    Two months before I have found thousands of Jon Brelig hits 24 hours on mturk. But recently the hits are available in few numbers. Me and my earnings depending upon Jon Brelig hits. So please could anyone tell me the approximate time of upload bulk hits like previous year...

    @sattaps: I've noticed this too and I have no answer. The past 45-60 days it seems like there's no work worth mentioning. Not sure what's going on. Maybe they're posting work at 3am India time? I have almost 6000 approved hits so you'd think I'd be in the loop on what's going on. I have no clue.

    Some retailers are moving towards making receipts available electronically. Dollar General is a good example.

    Here’s how they work it: You sign up for an account with your email address & phone number. When you enter your phone number on the point-of-sale terminal you will get an email or text message of your receipt with line-item detail. You can also go online to their website and look at your old receipts.

    I expect more and more retailers to offer this option, thus fewer and fewer people could end up having to photograph their receipts for all these rewards programs (Kellogg’s Family Rewards is an example of one such loyalty program). And as fewer printed receipts are needed to participate, fewer receipts will be farmed out through the likes of Jon Brelig.

    If your earnings depend on work like this, you should diversify (IMO).

    I have a receipt from Lowe's for $10,000.00 it won't accept the amount. What should I do?

    Hello everyone! I just joined this board while researching some of the requesters on Mturk. I never knew Jon Brelig had so many complaints! I've been working with him for some months now and have had nothing but a positive experience.

    I have over 12,000 hits completed on my account and a 99.7% approval rating. I have NO idea how many of those are Brelig's, but I would assume THOUSANDS. I've never had a problem with rejections or being blocked, as I've heard many have. The HITs are pretty straight-forward in direction, so if you're a native-English speaker, it shouldn't be hard at all to figure out what he wants. Just use common sense and your best judgement.

    Some elements of the receipt might be hard to decipher at first, but there are directions, and some HITs even have their own set of instructions included to avoid mistakes. Sometimes the tax is listed on a separate line, sometimes there is no tax at all. On some receipts it looks like you might be at the end with a total, but you've got to be sure they didn't add any items/coupons to their purchase after the initial totaling of the order - it's always best to go to the end of the receipt to make sure the order is done.

    With these HITs, it is impossible to list every little detail for instructions as they vary from receipt to receipt. If you're not comfortable with the HIT you've accepted, return it back to the pool and let the next Turker see if they can figure it out instead of risking rejection.

    I know it can be somewhat confusing and I know some of you are complaining about working for "pennies", but it's your choice to complete the hit or not. Personally, I've made over $600 working for Jon Brelig. I'm saving to move my elderly Mother (who just survived breast cancer this year) to my house with me. It will take about $10,000 and I have a long way to go, but I'm not giving up and certainly not complaining about money I make sitting on my butt at home.

    I'd be happy to answer any questions any of you might have to make it a little easier for you. Just remember, thousands of Turkers work on these hits and those "pennies" add up to quite a sum to be paid by the Requester, so enjoy the opportunity.

    Sincerely,

    Lori

    OR you could just make more money even more quickly by working for a requester who pays fairly and promptly.

    Even as a brand-new turker, I could tell Breligs were garbage HITs. I did do quite a few 411Richmond "Verify a Single Value" HITs for numbers. Felt much less exploitative.

    I can understand where you're coming from... but exploited? That's a little harsh, but to each his/her own. LOL

    I'm not trying to speak for everyone who does his HITs... I'm just saying from personal experience, I've never had a problem.

    Yes, exploited. A requester paying so little for work is exploitative.

    Not to get personal, but if you really want to make money you can make better use of your turking time. $10,000 one Brelig at a time is laughable.

    As I said, to each his/her own.

    I think you did get personal. Who ever said that Brelig is the ONLY work I do; furthermore, who said I'm not saving money from other resources as well? You know what they say about assumptions.
