Pokemon GO Best Friends Trick?

Does anyone do the Pokemon GO Best Friend Trick?

You can get 100,000 XP for reaching Best Friends status with your Pokemon Go Friends.

But if you pop an Egg before the notification pops up you can get double XP (200,000 XP!).

I know some people do the method of stacking lots of Best Friends together to make the most of their Eggs. You basically get as many friends as you can to 1 level before Best Friend Status. Then when you have a bunch, pop an egg and then send a Gift to activate the XP bonus.

Just wondering if anyone does this method and if it's effective?

I'm literally doing this right now.

The issue is if you wait too long, your friends can delete you from their list and you'll lose all the XP.

I mean it’s not like it’s instant XP since you have to grind all those gift giving days. 5 best friends is only like 1mil XP; at level 49 that’s nothing

What about just doing it to good friends status? 100k per friend?
