    I've been driving Amazon Flex for 18 months. Has anyone noticed that the type of offers that you receive and get vary over time? For example, a few weeks ago, I was getting plenty of grocery blocks during the optimal time frames (e.g. 11:30-1:30; 3:30-5:30; 7:30-9:30)? The last couple of weeks, I haven't gotten more than a few of those, most have been during the offset times (e.g. 4:00-6:00; 6:00-8:00). Also, it seems that periodically I get more restaurant offers and fewer warehouse and grocery blocks. I am curious if anyone else has similar experiences.

    Are you talking about Reserve offers?

    Not reserved blocks. Just regular daily offers. It seems like it goes in cycles. For a period of time, I see and get plenty of the blocks for grocery or warehouse that are during key times, like 11:30-1:30, 3:30-5:30, etc. Then, other times I only seem to get restaurant block offers or 1-hour grocery and earehware blocks. That seems to last for a couple of weeks, and then I start getting good warehouse and grocery blocks again for a couple of weeks.
    Basically, I am wondering if Amazon occasionally changes what offers each driver will see and be able to get.

    If you are talking about blocks more then 24hrs in advance then yeah Amazon rotates those lists every couple weeks. Or if you are a noob/inactive you will get on the preferred list.

    OP, you're (others like you) being A-B tested like lab rats. Maybe HQ is trying to optimize the number of ants on demand. Maybe they're trying to see if 2 hour blocks increases more ants. who knows? only the dude programming the code
