To each their own, maybe I should churn all day, give up my apartment and car, live in hotels and travel the globe.
Or maybe you should churn all day, pay down your mortgage, give more tzedakah, and not have to work on erev yt and chol hamoed

There Is no possibility of me being able to respond to that without being bashed right and left, but come by my apartment and I'll give you the answer in person.

this is why I hate internet discussions. You have assumed so much in your response, things farthest from the truth that is crazy.

The guy that offered me the small amount?  Worked for me for years, I taught him everything he knows.

I respect that line of business, I started my business 15 years ago. Personally this isn't for me and I moved away from that sector long ago anyways.

 I'll do it mostly as a favor, points are great and no one ever said a few bucks suck. But if you have a open order for a few thousand units and stand to make 40-50$ a pop and ask me to be your schlepper and make 10$ a unit so In the big picture you can make 40-50k for doing nothing... A big eff you very much is in order.

in the beginning I welcomed the churning opportunities, I still do. It's great for all of us and is 10000 times better than vanilla ;)

I dunno I just don't like doing someone else's work for a few dollars or free. Maybe it's just my personality. If it was something that came off as a favor I probably wouldn't mind but it just ends up feeling so much like "go buy 10 of this and 5 of that " and I'm just not in the mood to buy anything and I get annoying reminders it's like screw you!

Again it's probably just my independent personality, I would gladly help someone else earn a income if there was nothing in it for me.

Long before there was buying groups there was people buying the first ipads for others to wholesale :)
So you're upset that the guy was giving you a bad markup? Find a better buying group.

@chevron

I've been buying for the groups for a few years now. I don't do it for the money, I really couldn't care about the commissions that they offer.

I only do it for the spend. Give me a macbook that I can buy for $1,000 and I'll be glad to buy 100 of them for you. It's a win-win for me. You get the products that you need to sell, and I get the points that I want.

I'm assuming most are in the same position. They got into it because they wanted the points. Yes, a little commission helps too.

I realised that for some, it is a source of much needed secondary income. Rather than a game or such.

I do realize that, done right it represents a few hundred extra dollars a week, which can be crucial or at least helpful.

Sometimes I parlay my personal experience with things into the big picture, not because I think the world evolves around me, I just forget that each person is different.

For me, churning is often a distraction from my day job and inherently a waste of time.
