What is a grab?

08-16-2007, 12:38 PM

A "grab" on shopping group is basically reserving someone to shop with for the month. So if you were a member, and I wanted to shop with you, I would post tothe group "Grab-Elsie". We open up to grabs every month on the 15th, and members have two weeks to shop.
It's a commonly used term on all shopping groups :) I hope that helped a little. We would love to have you join us if you're interested!

So if you grab , that is who you will purchase from, in order to fulfill the requirement by the 1oth the following month?

My only other concern in joing is that some companies have higher ticket items and really don't have $10 selections, how does that pan ou?

How long will this group go on? How long will you keep it up? How do you keep track whose purchased from who so that no one is left out?

Thanks for your responses, this is very new to me and it makes me nervous to commit to a monthlypurchase.

I've belonged to several groups over the last few years. We keep track of who buys from whom in a database, so no one is left out. If you have a budget, then your goal would be to grab/reserve someone/their company which you have staked out before hand, and you know their products, etc.

Some shopping groups go on for years! Of course, you have members drop and new members come aboard, so the companies and products rotate all the time :)

I have found all the companies I represent through shopping groups. I do most of my birthday and Christmas shopping through my groups, too.

There are alot of groups out there. Some are new, while others have been around for awhile. Just be sure you join one with experienced owners/moderators. It can be confusing keeping any group up, much less a shopping group!
