I hope people realize that any buying group or anyone else that gets merchandise in advance of payment can go south at any time. That's even if you get a check at the time of delivery.
X-posting as I don't want anyone to say that I never put a warning here.

Buying Group Master Thread
« on: November 18, 2018, 04:11:23 PM »
A few people have suggested this so here goes....Tittle says it all. A few ground rules:

1) No needless bashing of buying groups here, if you had a bad experience post the facts so others know.

2) No self promotion.

3) Obviously no personal referrals may be posted.

Itís a conspiracy. Just want to say that buying groups can be a real source of ms trick is to take it slow until you have a hang of things and understand when your chances are better in regards to cancellations. If you order every item every time with no cheshbon you will be quickly dissuaded to quit because of cancellations

Being dissuaded to quit would mean you want to keep going...

Actually, you can play the system right and make many thousands of dollars annually, with some making 6 (7?) figures by properly gaming the system.

That said, for the majority of us itís just MS for bonus spending and the like, plus the good commission deals. Therefore, heed that advice. Figure out which sellers on eBay donít cancel guest accounts, get the Best Buy ordering system down, and then see how to double dip with Best Buy GC deals and such. Trust me, those cancellation emails can make you give up faster than @mmgfarb can post a snarky reply to this post.  :)

Also, Amazon deals are complete gravy.

How is target regarding cancelling delivery orders when exceeding the max per customer? Never really pushed them much...

They'll let it go for a while (meaning letting some orders thru and cancelling others) and then randomly completely blacklist your address afaik there's no way back in..
