If you notice that a group buy that is still open for orders is missing from this list, please add it in your reply to this thread.  It will be reviewed and added to the list.  After your recommendation is added to the list, your post will be removed to keep this a brief one-page summary.

'sounds good to me. We'll post a bump when the list is updated. :thumb:


Note to others editing this list: please delete the old bump before posting the new bump to keep things orderly.

Yet another hidden gem on intelli78's blog Keychatter, he's got this really cool GB tracker. Might be a nice complement to this thread :)

There are GB that are not taking orders anymore; because, they are in the fulfilling phase already. These links are not too useful for those looking for opportunities to get new things, that make most of the visitors to this thread; therefore, it would be good to remove them from the list, or place them into a category that informs that the GBs are not taking orders anymore. Having them along with the GB that are actively taking orders reduce the usefulness of this thread; people interested have to navigate to the reference just to find that the GB orders have been closed.

I don't think it's an issue. It's not a long list, and new stuff is shown by the tag. Maybe more tags for 'taking orders' or 'invoicing' or 'shipping'? I don't think it's an issue for them to still be in the list.


Exactly: is not an issue; but, it could be an useful future to have the GBs classified, or with the tag added, that sounds great as well.

Thanks for pointing that out. :thumb: I've pruned the list of GBs that aren't taking orders.  Not sure if we'll add tags for invoicing and shipping since we want to keep this just for the GBs that are taking orders.  Should we add the ordering end dates though?


Keep it as simple as possible. You do more than enough by keeping this thread updated, already. Thank you very much.

End dates could be added at the time the link is registered in the list, and it will be required only once. But, of course, it is up to you. Again, we appreciate the hard work you are already doing in the benefit of the community.

Hi there infiniti and photoelectric and anyone else who updates this.

I use this program to update my Interest Check Tracker.

CPTBadAss suggested that you might find it useful. If you can't understand my hastily written documentation, just shoot me a PM.

This thread is useless.  Delete it.  I've missed two group buys by wasting my time checking this.

You might want to consider setting the Group Buy subforum to "Notify", in order to be made aware of any and all group buy threads that are created. 

Or perhaps take all the time you've wasted reading this single thread and scan the subforum for new group buys instead.

Pardon the delay but UPDATED!

Anyway, we're experimenting with a new section: OTHER OFF-SITE GROUP BUYS AND PRE-ORDERS.  This is for group buys and pre-orders that do not have a dedicated thread on GeekHack and do not come from a Vendor.  It's meant just to make the list more exhaustive to avoid the risk of missing out. :p

Let me know what you think. :cool:

Updated with all non-vendor & vendor buys + pictures :)

I have my own spreadsheet I'm going to be keeping updated with all buys ran through GH (that have been active since today onwards). I'll keep posting new ones here too? ;D

Wow, thanks!  :thumb: 

If you're keeping a spreadsheet on your own anyway, maybe I could add a link to it in the OP assuming it's Google Sheets?  That way all your updates will be visible right away.

Not going to go through every page and collect info, so it'll just be any that get bumped ;D

P.S. The Lets Split case is repeated in the OP.

I suggest to delete the content in the OP and let the spreadsheet be the single source for reference. The huge work it takes is well appreciated and there is no need to invest any additional effort editing the text of the post here.

I couldn't update it consistently, and people would get upset it wasn't up to date, so I stopped completely.

I'll miss it, but I can only imagine how much work it must have been to maintain.  Thanks for doing it for as long as you did!
