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.

Ever since they've come back, I've had pretty good experiences with BuyForMeRetail, though their user interface isn't as good as MYS/PM. They pay out via ACH pretty much immediately which is great (especially contrasted with MYS, from whom I now expect three-week payout times)
Does anyone have any experience with this group?

I don't think buyer IDs show how many users there are. I signed up to MYS months ago and have a 5 digit ID. My friend signed up last week and has 4 digits.
They began the ID's from the #8000.
Google is my friend

come back? this guy is new to this business! unless your the owner and are trying to promote yourself...

Nah, not the owner. I remember they were around in 2018 and then shut down for a while because I think they overextended themselves? Not sure.

2018 is still considered new..

is still considered new..

How on earth could people be willing send to someone where they intentionally hide. It is absolute stupidity.

Definitely good to know that they're fairly new, thanks. I haven't done much business with them because I don't know as much about them versus other groups (MYS, PM, etc). I just wish other groups would pay out as quickly as they do.

the frequency level of underpaying for standard items like ipads/mackbooks  are getting ridiculous... I think this game should be put in "deals on death watch"

Gotta give MYS credit for paying a decent commission on the Google Express MacBook deal.

@Markmann20 is there anyway that you can start releasing eChecks earlier? Waiting over to weeks is not easy...

He can, but that’s part of his business model.
