First off let me say that I am not a troll but am a 21 yr vet at UPS. I have always submitted sales leads when the opportunity presented itself and have received a few bucks on my AMEX card. I was asked to track down some more daily pickups on my route. I had one guy that owns a shoe1 store on my area. I was already doing a daily at the bookstore right next to him. So about 2-3 times a week he would meet me at my truck with a couple of internet packages. I asked him if he was interested in having a daily pickup. He said he might be interested. I asked if I could have a sales rep contact him. He was contacted by the rep and they told him that he needed to sign up for a daily pickup otherwise he needed to drop his packages off at UPS or UPS store if he did not. He reluctantly signed up for the daily pickup at a new charge of $10.00 a week thinking it may help me out and he didnt want to take it to UPS. I never got credit on my AMEX card for his new daily pickup (200 points =$10.00) and only .50 for his shipping. He was told that the driver (me) that submitted the lead would receive a "bouns" for signing him up. Last week he asked me if I received my "bonus" I told him I got .50 and it will be taxed at 30% when I redeem it. I already had over $100.00 on my card so it just added .50 to the running total. He was real upset. Today he called me into his shop and said he had a deal for me. The deal was that he was going to drop the daily pickup at $10.00 a week ($520.00 a year). His deal was that things would go back to same as it was and when he saw me he would bring me his packages. His "Bonus' to me was a free pair of shoes every 6 months up to $100.00. He pays less and I get "paid" more...Sounds like the customers are willing to do more for us than UPS. I did decline his offer because I am sure there is something in there about dishonesty. My job is worth more than free shoes. But I did tell him I was happy to pickup his prepaid packages like I had in the past. I asked my sup why I didnt get the points on my AMEX card and he told me that the customer already had an account so he didnt qualify for the new daily pickup points. And the .50 was only for the increase in volume from what he was previously shipping. I guess he shipped 2 more packages in that 90 days than in the last 90 days. Just something to remember when getting those leads. I still encourage you to get all the leads you can but make good decisions on who needs the service and who doesnt. This guy went 4 months of paying for a service he did not need.
