We paid $5000 for our membership. After joining we ordered $24,000 in kitchen cabinets. When we presented Direct Buy with a cabinet quote we received from Menards for the exact cabinets, they would not honor the quote. Bottom line, we paid Direct Buy approx $2000 more for our cabinets then we would have paid retail.
Not only do you pay a membership fee upfront they also charge a fee each time you order anything.
It is frustrating to shop with them, you need to search endlessly in catologs for items. It is much easier to buy products on-line and much better pricing.
Don's let their hard sell tactics fool you into joining. DIRECT BUY IS A RIP OFF
