How much spending did you do? Were you only using GCs or did you order also on your credit card?

Times have changed, I recall BITGOD spending north of 100k on Cyber Monday at Staples using CIBP. The BG would offer +commission on most items and ordering on BB and other online retailers was a breeze. Now, the BG are mostly selling below cost, with the margins so low, one order goes wrong and you are in the red.
IMO it simply isn't worth it, other than for SUB.

I feel exactly the same. I only use them for a SUB.
The removed commissions, order cancellations, and FILLING THE FORMS just killed it for me.

That's why I always fill the form before I order and if it gets canceled I replace the quantity with a zero

Not to mention filling it a form for every single order, and even when they buy at cost, there's no guarantee they won't change the price on a whim even on existing orders.
My take away: stay away from BG.

Forms mean nothing. If they want the item they will take it even if you didnt fill out form and if they don't want it they will make you return even with the forms (see usa watches now).

I think they might be coming back. With the qmex 5% capped at 120k per calendar year they may not get as much quantity from their big buyers and need to offer full price and possibly even commission. Prime day didnt really see one deal at bc.
