    Yes, once I get more info from UG and it's official then I'll make a thread. We are going to needed a significant amount of interest though. Last GB sold over 200 units and this one will need 150+ confirmed to make it worth it. So please everyone continue to post your interest until this goes live. Thank you

    Well guys, Ultra gauge approved the GB last week, but I haven't heard back from them since. The support I got last time made it easy to moderate the group buy but this time it seems like it takes weeks to get an email response. I don't have the time to set this whole thing up again, especially with the response times lately. If someone else wants to moderate this, PM me and I'll help you get in touch with the right people so you can take over and manage this.

    Sorry everyone.

    The support I got wasnt any better. After over 6 months of me sending a few emails they told me that they never got a single one, and this last one they did, they finally replied to me. They told me I bought it january 2012 and this ultra guage is now out of warranty. Funny how i didnt get any answer until after my warranty was up so they could charge ti replace the screen. Which is what they now say the problem was. There customer service is...... lacking to say the least.

    Yeah. Too bad cuz only a few months ago during the last GB the support was excellent! Responses to emails within hours, and lots of help from their staff. I sold 211 units at about $85/unit average (with accessories) that's just shy of $18000 (yes, 18 thousand dollars!!) In under 7 days. Now I'm trying to do the same thing again and I can't get a response. I thoroughly enjoy my ultragauge a lot, and hope it lasts a long time. But whatever happened to the company in the last few months is really gonna hurt them.

    ProForce, Thank's for trying to get these people to work with you on the group buy. If they don't want are business that's on them but, I want you to know your effort was appreciated. Thank's Again. And good luck to anyone else who tries to deal with these people. It's not a good sign when times are hard and you are giving a Co. business and they won't do business. Something kinda smells about how they are responding or not responding, damn at least be honest and tell us whats going on.

    I am just looking at the ultraguage webpage. Unfortunately they do not appear to have a contact e-mail or phone# listed.

    The only way I got a response was the help tab and submit a trouble ticket, and 2 days later I heard back, telling me im sol. Thats the only way to contact them ive found. If your trying to get some correspondence.

    As Chris said, only way to get through is by submitting a trouble ticket. That's how I did the entire last GB. Also how I finally got through this time. But last contact was last week so :notsure: anymore. I give up, but if I hear back with details and a better response I'll gladly help someone else moderate this time.

    OK guys, here's the deal. UG finally got back to me and advised me that they are having trouble with their message delivery system and apologized for the delay. They have revised the rules and discounts for future group buys. IF we set up another one, it is a set discount of $10 off and is an instant discount during checkout. However, you will no longer qualify for the $9 rebate.

    The previous GB was you make the purchase at full price, then receive a refund of $15 and a $9 rebate for a total of $24 off. This time you only get a $10 discount and that's it.

    So final cost of unit would be $50 plus shipping and any mounts you purchase. Its only $1 off extra than if you were to just buy it on your own and submit for the rebate.

    Another requirement is 100 minimum units sold. Discount does not go up for more units sold.

    I'm sorry but after considering this, I will not be hosting another group buy. IMO, it was an enormous amount of work last time, and I'm not down to go through that again for $1 off.

    IF SOMEONE ELSE WANTS TO TAKE ON THIS TASK AND MODERATE THE GROUP BUY, THERE IS SOME INCENTIVE FOR YOU. PM me if your interested in taking over the next group buy. If nobody else wants to do this, then there will be no group buy. Sorry guys

    No need to apologize Anthony. Thanks for doing the work. +1 for that.

    ...and I agree, if they are offering what amounts to a $1 discount, they obviously aren't too interested. Why would we work to sell their units for nothing? there is reciprocation there.
