What is Kitchen Police?
AutoQuotes takes pride in our catalog content and we understand how important accuracy is to everyone who uses it. While we would love to say our content is 100% accurate all of the time, most of us know that no database is perfect. For that reason, AutoQuotes developed the Kitchen Police program. Located conveniently in the AQ Catalog, you can report errors or inconsistencies with a simple click of a button. All reported claims are then investigated by our Chief of Kitchen Police and if the error is verified we correct the issue and send you a $10 reward.
How Does It Work?
If you find any discrepancies, potentially incorrect information, or have any other questions regarding catalog content, please submit a claim using the Kitchen Police button in the AQ catalog.
AutoQuotes will review the claim to verify that it meets the criteria to qualify for a spiff. Once the claim has been confirmed as valid, you will be rewarded $10. At the end of the month, you will receive a check for all of your spiffs at the address you have registered in AQ.
For our new participants, we would like to say, “Welcome to the force!” With your first valid spiff you will receive a unique AQ gift.
Examples of Claims That Earn Spiffs
- Incorrect price
- Incorrect description
- Incorrect media
- For claims on incorrect images and spec sheets, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the correct content or a link to the manufacturer’s product page.
Who can Participate?
By participating in the Kitchen Police Program, you acknowledge that such participation does not violate any policies of your employer. If necessary, participation in the KP program should be approved by your employer.
Modification & Termination of the Program
AutoQuotes reserves the right to discontinue or modify the rules or program details without notice. Including, but not limited to, the duration of the program, and methods by which users are rewarded.
Examples of Non-Spiffable Claims
- Programming or search problems
- Manufacturers will not be spiffed for finding mistakes in their own listings
- The same error on multiple items is considered one mistake. For example, one spec sheet that applies to multiple items would be considered one error, not multiple errors.
- Omissions of content (e.g. weights, dimensions, freight, spec sheets, images, CAD symbols, Document links, etc.)
- Missing accessories (e.g. fryer filter brushes, range fasteners, cleaners)
- Fractional discrepancies (e.g. capacities, dimensions, etc)
- Typographical errors
You’ve also got that little tool in there where if you do find a mistake you can just hit the button, report it and they send you ten dollars. Even rarely does that happen but, the best thing about AutoQuotes is that we don’t have to worry about AutoQuotes the company it just happens.

One of the best parts about AutoQuotes is how reliable it is. If it says it’s the list price you can take that it’s the list price.
