I will work on this on the next few days but most of the info is very old and outdated.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

In light of recent significant issues with EMB and BFMR (documented in numerous posts on this thread over the last couple months), maybe someone should update the wiki at the top of this thread? I'm personally feeling very skittish about purchasing for either at the moment.

The best way to do Dell is ship to home and request a shipping label from PM. With the right AmEx offers and/or shopping portal you'll still come out ahead regardless of taxes. Without those AmEx Offers and/or a really good portal rate, Dell (like most retailers that aren't Amazon) generally isn't worth trying.

Does BFMR offer shipping labels?
Any other buying groups that currently buy Dell products?

The only buying group I'm aware of that regularly offers shipping labels for Dell deals is PointsMaker.

Always risks associated with using Amazon GCs in this game. Got this on P2s account today. Thankfully they didnt actually drain the $1000 GC balance but they did cancel the 3 watch order. Been using buying groups for 3 years. Moderate volume. Safe to say P2s account is off limits to me now.

EMB has been sending me echecks the same day. Yesterday then sent me two checks within an hour. My issue with my last delivery was resolved, but it did take a week for them to get back to me on Whats App. I don't feel they have any other risks than the others, but the less people that send to them the better for me...

Its normal. Amz will only let you buy so many devices and then blocks them for unknown amount of time.

Curious what the order was that resulted in this email... I'm guessing that by "3 watch order" it was an Apple Watch Prime-exclusive deal?

Prime-exclusive deals and Amazon devices make me nervous. Maybe a false sense of security but I've been trying to stay away from those in hopes of avoiding a ban.

Anyone else experience slower checkins for PM since Prime day. In my experience, they were able to do same day in most cases pre-prime day for a good few months

Yes. That's to be expected. They were days or even weeks behind in scanning during last year's holiday season from November through January. That said, I had an Amazon order delivered yesterday and it was scanned in and ready for me to request payment today.
