* ObviousBeta: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziAqUdK0tGI The pilot]] suffered this severely- different logo, different host, a far more abstract mall set, a hostess- though some of the elements from this pilot besides the gameplay, including the shop names and Mark Wahlberg, were kept while everything else was changed and refined. Hell, one of the stores was a ''pizzeria''.
* RecycledInSpace: ''Series/LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple'', another S&S show, albeit with Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}, reused the "find and carry items through a mock-up of a location" concept and ''seriously'' amped it up.

* BonusRound: Shop 'Til They Drop; the team was given a set of six "gifts" that one person opened; they could either keep the prize, or "take it back" to any store in the mall (all of which had gift boxes in front). In either case, the runner had to take the gift to a table on the other end of the stage and hit a bell sitting atop a podium before the opener could continue. After that, the gifts would be revealed; everything on the table was theirs, no matter what. If the team managed to get at least $2,500 in prizes ($1,000 during Seasons 1-2), they won a "dream vacation".

* BitingTheHandHumor: During a 2003 episode (Season 9), one category was "Shameless Plugs", to which JD chuckled a bit. When it came time to play said category, JD noted that the category was sponsored by (reaches into his podium and pulls out...) [[SubvertedTrope nothing]], after which he silently mouthed a praise to the heavens. ''Even the host of the plugathon that was the show's final two seasons hated the endless plugs.''
