    (shameless copy of Gomer's 2010 BRS Group Buy organizing posting)

    I love supporting our sponsors when possible, but there are some times when you want an item a sponsor doesn't have and need to look elsewhere*
    Bulk Reef Supply happens to be one of those sources. They have a group buy policy in place for clubs that I'd like to take advantage of. If we have enough interest (please post in this thread indicating so. We need 10 people either with existing accounts or new accounts to join into the program
    ), then I'll get the ball moving to make it happen.

    How it works:
    1. Gather a minimum of 10 participants
    2. Everyone creates an account on BulkReefSupply.com if they don't have one already
    3. I pick a Tuesday for the group buy will start. (Group buys run Tuesdays through the following Monday)
    4. I'll send BRS an email with the following information
    1. Your First and last name (actual name, not forum name).
    2. Your email address associated with each participants BulkReefSupply.com's email address.
    3. The name of the group buy and it's start date. For example, "BAR April 5th 2011".

    Here is what will happen after I send the list:
    1. BRS will update each participants account sometime on the Tuesday morning we chose and email everyone that the buy has started.
    2. Start buying only after this email is received.
    3. During the week that the buy is open members will individually login and place their own order which will ship immediately.
    4. The next Monday each participant's account will be changed to Preferred Customer. BRS Preferred Customer pricing is between regular retail and group buy prices. This permanent upgrade is their way of saying thanks for getting your reef supplies with them!

    The group buy price will be the lowest quantity price listed on their site.
    For example: Drew's Dosing Pumps.
    Normally 89.99 each
    Buy 3 for $84.99 each and save 6%
    Buy 5 for $79.99 each and save 12%

    "Me too" -- I'll be buying an RO/DI unit and probably some other sundries and nick-nacks.

    Naturally I see this after I drop a ton of money there.
    But good for next time.
    Me too.
  4. I've got a BRS shipment coming in today from a RC group buy, but I'll join to make sure you hit the 10-person requirement. Email sent.

    Pretty sure it was a timed discount for direct shipment.

    Each buyers order is shipped separately.

    Bump We still need one or two more people to get us to the minimum 10. I will need to send the request in Thursday night in order to be processed for next week.

    If i remember correctly you don't have to buy something right now. You just need to send email address and such. Just have to have 10 new people do it. Pretty sure that is how it worked last time. Once you are in you qualify for the lower rate For-ev-er
  20. To add to what Bryan said:
    "At the end of the Group Buy each participant's account will be changed to Preferred Customer. BRS Preferred Customer pricing is generally between our retail and group buy prices. This permanent upgrade is our way of saying thanks for getting your reef supplies with us!"
