    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 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's email address.
    3. The name of the group buy and it's start date. For example, "BAR September 13th-20th 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%

    Bump! I will be sending in the Group Buy request on Friday afternoon and we are still short a few people. If you're even considering making an order, sign up.

    Unfortunately our group buy request was declined because we didn't have enough people sign up. (We had only 4). We can try again if people express interest. I suspect we may have been too close to the recent Reef Central group buy.
