1) No. It's illegal. You will almost certainly go to jail for violating a store's terms and conditions.
Do you know if it would be a state or federal prison?

Itís the M&P Prison.

They take away all your cards and everyday they force you to watch others collecting miles&points and redeeming them for awesome getaways. Then on your last day, right before they let you out ... they reset all your m&p balances to -1 and give back just one of your cards, with a revolving credit limit of $100. This is called the probation period.

Ok guys, I'll do it. I'll answer the questions clearly so that this can end.

1) No. It's illegal. You will almost certainly go to jail for violating a store's terms and conditions. Some people think a month in jail is worth a week in the Maldives or at least one shower on a airplane. It's basic risk-reward / cost-benefit analysis.

2) I'm gonna get in huge trouble for this, but I've already been removed from one buying group for inactivity, so I'm not risking that much. The buying groups use the power of large groups to obtain products at a lower cost which they then sell to other buyers at a higher cost. It's a very secretive concept called, "but low, sell high."

Please note, in certain industries which are kosher in some states and decidedly unkosher in most, it is very much not advised to "sell high". But to each their own.
who knew these forums could be such a safe space ;) - glad you spent the time to write this piece of satire

Your first question was answered almost immediately.
Your second question initially seemed somewhat irrelevant. It then turned into the bizarre situation of your simultaneously being unsure you want to be involved in this business on even the lowest level, buying for groups, while also expecting that people would outline their entire business model for you so you can become their competition. I really have no idea why you expect that info to be shared. You keep perseverating on the same points but you've got what you're going to get. Any further info falls under the category of "those who know don't tell, those who tell don't know." And if I was running a buying group the last thing I would do is post any answers to your questions when you have clearly stated that your interest in getting that info is to enter the business yourself.
Thank You for the candid response

This is about to get moved to JS now so don't worry.

Huh? ::)
How would I do that? Once it is deleted how would I quote it? Should I delete my post which you quoted and then complain that you quoted a deleted post?
