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.

True, be "careful" there's reports of shutdowns if buying GC on an account then using it on the same account for tax exempt
Yes if you use GC on a tax exempt account, you risk the account that bought the GC as well as the account that uses the GC. Of course this only matters if you care about accounts. But if you have a built up working elite plus account (and obviously if you have any rewards - thought best practice is to use those as fast as possible) you may not want to risk it.

No. In fact I decided to remove the wiki. I think the less this info is available online the better.

BB can very easily start to crack down on their tax exempt policy, enforce limits etc to name a few

BB is fully aware their TE policy is being violated.

Not sure if it's so smart though to start listing all the "tricks" how to get multiple orders through - they can close those loopholes very easily

You honestly think that BB doesn't see the tens of millions of dollars of merchandise being bought with tax exempt cards?

I agree but was just asking what is wrong with listing the different buying groups in the wiki.

Nothing wrong with a list of names. A detailed description of each group with their website portals is what I would stay away from.

Banks and CC can crackdown as well - many reports of shutdowns because of such unusual activity, besides for it being a risk to the CC company itself.

Reminds me of the abuse with Amex/MS. They were aware of it but just didn't know how to handle it. They figured it out somewhat. The same with WF now.

Why is buying stuff from BB a risk for the CC company?
