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.

I was actually approached by security in a target in DE, who made me leave the store on a order pickup, and permanently blacklisted from all purchases. However till that point I had purchased a tremendous amount of merchandise without being blacklisted. (I had already picked up 100+ iPod touches from 2 other locations)
In Target Howell I was actually approached by a sales rep on my way out the store after purchasing alot of product and told to come back later when she's behind the counter to get more.
They get a commission on electronics they sell apparently.
I'm not who you think I am.

yea if you find the right manager and play by their rules so they can avoid getting "caught" you can do some nice volume.

Any risk shipping Amazon straight to DE?
If they decide they don't like it will they issue you a warning or just close your account?

Perhaps there can be a wiki with the different buying groups link without referals?

Does using a tax exempt on BB make me ineligible to receive cash back from Portals like Ebates?

If I am not mistaking, at bb you get points when you buy gift cards - not when redeaming them.  So you can buy gift cards on a non tax exempt account.

True, be "careful" there's reports of shutdowns if buying GC on an account then using it on the same account for tax exempt

Have not done this in years, however I would buy without the tax exempt and then email BB with the order number and tax exempt number and they would refund the taxes and I would earn points.
Be aware they might insist on the tax exempt name matching the name on the order
