I also find it frustrating, but I am lucky enough to have the ability to double book on certain occasions and have only had to turn down one person who had an open date request on here and it was a few years ago. With the new increase in pricing, I think it would be a fair option for Thumbtack to be able to refund those credits if a situation like the one you are describing happens. The safest route would be to not bid on those jobs at all, but that is a disservice to both the potential clients and for you as a Thumbtack pro. @JasonB Any idea if a potential refund of credits for open date requests is a possibility in case of double bookings and the inability to take the job is a possible solution?

Awwww shucks! Thanks guys for the love and support of our business. We're so lucky Thumbtack has been a part of our success from the begining, you're truly one of a kind partners and we're greatful for all of the opportunties! We have made so many great realtionships with other Thumbtack pros here locally and can now refer business back and forth to each other and when customers ask me for a referral and I dont know someone in that field I can send them to Thumbtack and know there's a pretty good chance they'll find a really good pro all while supporting other local small businesses. Its a great feeling to see everyone succeed while following their dreams!
