Topic Wiki

MYS (Mark Mann) -
Good: ckmk47, S209, ual902, Pointer, Newberry
Bad:
Pros: Many deals and usually the first to post them. Will do private pickup for $1000 worth of merchandise. Items shipped to DE are generally scanned into their system within 2 days or even same day when there are not a lot of deals. Varies by location, but you may be able to drop off merchandise or even go to a drop off location to pick up a check immediately whenever you want (if they are available). During peak buying seasons, they have held raffles for all buyers with many prizes including flights to Israel.
Cons: After requesting a check, they say it will take up to 9 business days (with only 4 business days per week) to receive an echeck or even more for a mailed check. They sometimes don't even send checks after 9 days and you need to create a ticket or contact Mark directly for payment. This can sometimes take 2-3 weeks from date of request. Filling out forms after every order is tedious.

Directly Deals -
Good: yelped, S209
Bad:

PointsMaker -
Good: JunkYardUnz, davidrotts63, MordyK, chinagel, shulem92, yelped, Redbull3, Keepsmiling123, BerB, avromie7, lindnuck, qwerty123
Bad:
Pros: Great customer service. Items usually scanned in same day. Checks also usually sent same or next day.
Cons: Not as many deals as MYS or USA.

YRCW Tech -
Good: afrages6, chayie, avrohomgelb, boruchmig
Bad:
Pros: excellent people running it.
Cons: Very few deals

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.

Seems like the pressure is getting to MYS finally based on emails sent out

they are being defensive which shows that the pressure is getting to them. They are also “urging us to explore the option to open the amazon cc”

IMO, @Markmann20 has recently changed his tone on this forum, from one of being helpful and nice, to somewhat arrogant.
He's probably fed up with all the comments here, and too big to care about the few customers he's losing who were probably a nuisance anyhow and not worth the time needed to please them.

That email was right thing. It should of been addressed as soon as you started offering less.

Wasn't the email wrong though? On the statement you still pay the full price, you just get "rewards points" worth 5% of the value of the item... At least that's the way it works on the Amazon Amex Biz card

These amazon "deals" are getting absolutely ridiculous.
ANY buying group paying full price?!
I'm not who you think I am.

Who would sell below cost just for a few miles.

Break even? I guess if it was stacked with Ebates or chase offers etc .
