Heads up, shoppers! If a Presto Insta-Shop requires a purchase or other expenditure, that amount is included in the shop fee. There is NO additional reimbursement with Presto Insta-Shops.For more information, see our knowledge base topic on finding shops with the Presto map.
All Presto Insta-Shops are self-assigned -- to assign yourself the shop, just click the Claim button. You must check the checkboxes indicating that you've read the shop guidelines and (if the shop calls for it) that you will complete the shop on an Android or iOS mobile device. You may also be required to verify your location.
Warning, danger, etc.: Insta-Shops have time limits, not due dates! As soon as you claim the shop, the timer starts running. DON'T claim a shop unless you're sure you can get to the shop location, complete the shop and submit the survey within the time limit.
