I just got this email from Amazon Flex Dallas. $25 hourly instead of $18 hourly tomorrow. Did anyone else get that email below? It's nice to know they increase payouts on busy days.



Many delivery opportunities tomorrow - earn $100 per block!

We're expecting many deliveries tomorrow, June 25th, in Dallas (Farmers Branch).

You can check the Amazon Flex app starting at 10pm tonight to select delivery blocks for Saturday, 6/25!

To earn the increased rate of $100, the block must be selected in the app starting at 10pm tonight. Blocks scheduled in advance will not pay the increased rate.

Thank you for delivering smiles with us - we look forward to seeing you tomorrow!

The Amazon Flex Team

I was hoping everybody keep it secret until after 10 when I grab mine

My guess is they're running a test tomorrow and they're having less contractors are hardly any contractors and more Flex drivers tomorrow

I'm already scheduled for tomorrow. I wonder if I forfeit my schedule for Saturday today will I miss out all together. I'm pretty sure the blocks will go quick!

Personally I would drop what you have and try to pick up at 10pm, it states blocks taken starting at 10pm so I imagine it will be leading into the following day as well so you should have plenty of chances to grab blocks.

I was too. Forfeited 2 minutes before 10pm.
took the gamble and got an earlier block for 0.1K :D

Hopefully, I'll get started/finished sooner as well.

28 dollars is a tank of gas. So far it's a win... (100-72=28)
If we get loaded with 90 packages or something crazy, not so much...

Good idea, because I tossed a 12-4 block just now (@958) to get a 10:30am.
Maybe others will come home tonite or in the morning and check email
and start tossing out their scheduled blocks for benjamin blocks.

Or, if it's really as busy as they say it's supposed to be (who knows)
there definitely should be more blocks opened up at 5 and 6 PM.

Some will forfeit a block just because it won't pay a premium tomorrow,
even though any other time the 72 would be super. People get weird.

There has to be a story told by this time tomorrow night by someone
who will say, " I really, really wanted to work flex because of the 100/block
but blah blah so and so happened to my niece's pet ostrich and the egg was
blah blah and the feathers went like blah blah....Some story like that, you know ?
Never fails. So NightHawk, you'll wind up getting that block, since they won't.:)

ostriches, hmmmpf...

Definitely ! the 4G LTE is like only maybe a couple mips UPLOAD speed.
Download might be 5 or 10 or 12 or whatever, but you're uploading the request
and device is communicating up AND down, so your upload speed is important too.

This thread is doomed. I've already messed it up. I'm sorry.:(

I'd like to add in conclusion (and I hope this comes true) that the title,
"amazon-flex-increasing-the-payout-from-72-to-100" is a great suggestion
for a permanent rate hike. $100 for 4 full hours (if necessary) of dedicated delivery time.

Standard rate. I vote let's keep it there. Beats the daylights out of dropping it to 50.

I told you that you'd get one from Ostrich Annie. :)
The feathers and the egg and the bubble gum and oh jezzus, remember ?

I just got back a little while ago from the 1030-230, took the whole 4 hours.
80 packages ! all houses close enough and small enough.
I predicted 90 and was hoping I'd be only half kidding.

It was most of two routes instead of all of one. What's up with that ?

I met some new ignorant people today at working at Amazon.
They really don't know enough yet to be cool about it.

Unchecked, the greatest risk I saw them exposing the company to
was directing and instructing contractor staff as if they were employees.

Such behavior can tend to create a work environment that may lead
and encourage some to believe a de facto employer/employee relationship
is being formed, offered, inferred, interpreted as such, so on, so on.

Dumb asses.....I thought I was stupid.:eek:. I should bring a deck of cards.

Well came close to grabbing 11am slot oh well maybe I need the day off.going to see the Dan band later
So much for making it down to the House of Blues tonight.
I think Dan's thing is that he's got tourettes syndrome or something.
Otherwise nothing major. Have not seen them live on stage.

I had a feeling you'd be working instead. :cool:

Unless I get 10 packages and done in record time

As far as treating contracts as employees it's better for us they get sued we get in on class action
