Group buys?

What is the purpose of the multiple group buy threads in the vendor classifieds?

My understanding is that group buys are for bulk discounted products, but they advertise prices that are no different from what can be found on retailer websites. It seems like they only exist for product promotion and not discounted purchases.

Were they started for users to pre-order products and have since become product discussion threads?

There is a discount. It's a coincidence that you found a discounted item at the same price as a group buy.
