I will work on this on the next few days but most of the info is very old and outdated.


I have been using all of these the last 2 years and I will update what other people have started along with some tools on how to buy on multiple accounts if people want this info. This is just a quick first draft. I will clean up and add more details.

please dont .... up the work I will put into this. please message me and I can add more data and I have more buying groups that I can add
  1. Pointsmaker - pointsmaker.com - Notifies via email . You buy and upload tracking number - Payment comes pretty quick same day most often via echeck once item is checked in
  2. MYS Buying Group - mysbuyinggroup.com Notifies via email . You buy and upload tracking number - Payment comes pretty quick once item is checked in echeck
    MYS has the most complaints of all, from very late payment to not receiving items. Many people have given up on MYS.
  3. USA Buying Group - usabuying.group same as others regarding loading the tracking number. slowest payment of all. alerts come via whatsapp and email and response time is medium to issues
  4. YRCW - app.yrcwtech.com same as others alertss comes via whatsapp - payments can be slow. response time to issues are pretty quick via communication thru wahtsapp to owner
  5. Buy For Me Retail - The best. buyformeretail.com deals are posted on page. offers sent thru email. payment sent ach when they are checked i
  6. EMB - embdeals.com same as above - a great one as well. alerts via whatsapp. payments can be requested same day and will arrive same day. lots of offers last amazon prime.
  7. EMB - From late 2021 through August 2022, Several reports of missing packages, more complaints than most of the other groups. Buyers Beware.
  8. TheDealBuyer - thedealbuyer.com - Seems to be very new to the game. Not using whatsapp, but Pushover to send deals.

I know they got their website domain on Feb 2, 2021. New doesn't necessarily mean bad, but it exceeds my personal risk tolerance.

And it doesn't help that the guy who first posted it here only has 3 posts to his name. Makes me think he joined just to spam his own website

Um - no, I'm not trying to spam anything. I've been buying for different groups for a few months and saw a new one, I thought I'd ask if anyone had any feedback as they're kinda different from the others. No forms to fill out after buying (which is kinda nice), no deals on their website as they use text/WeChat to alert buyers, and they seem to have deals other buying groups don't have. That's all I know.

There was another buying group that recently started up, one of the founders spilt off and formed his own...thought maybe this group mentioned was something of the same.

Looks like they have the same backend site as some other groups. Location is in VA so it wouldn’t be tax exempt unless they had a different shipping address.

They have a Delaware shipping address. I have my first test deal with them in process. I'll report back once the whole thing is done, including payment.

Definitely starting to be more competition with 3 groups paying out fast: BFMR, EMB, and TDB.

If they'd all adopt BFMRs software instead of whatever out if the box package most use, it would make things a lot easier.

The "perfect" group doesn't exist, but depending on your priorities some come closer than others.
Any you'd care to mention?

Same. So far, so good with both BFMR and USA.

How are you getting BB and WM orders through? Can't get either.
