I just joined my first buying group yesterday. (MSY BUYING BROUP) the only credit card I have right now is my discover cashback card. Any recommendations for the beat buying groups to join for beginners. (I donít currently have a job, so I have a lot of time trying to find ways to bring in some income)
Spend the time finding a job, not a buying group..

Personally I only do BGs when I need to hit a SUB. Otherwise it's just not worth it when you calculate the risks involved

IME there are four categories of buyers

1) Those who use them just to hit SUBs

2) Those who use them to generally rack up points by buying often and selectively choosing what cards/GCs they use

3) Those who use them to make serious money by scaling and negotiating commissions

4) Those who donít know the system that well and are trying to make a few dollars and some points

The first 3 ways have their merits, but the 4th (which is many people) end up making very little money for their time/risk.

Why are you assuming they are using GCs on amazon?

definitely agree to this in some ways
The 2nd way of racking up cc points ect sometimes can be like the 4th way especially with big buying groups and bc.
But if you know your game well than can make some money.
But if making small money ect to sit there and wait and wait for a check.
Not worth it to make a few pennies for a month loan.
Keep calm and move on

Ink cash 5x office supply store Amazon GC for Bags would be great though

Supposedly if you use GC balance on amazon to ship to a BG DE address it would be a flag for a shutdown

Worse. they would cancel your order and NOT refund you the GC!

Does it matter how much the GC are?
I personally have done it, never had an order cancelled.
