I recently tried to become a direct buy member. Granted this was before I read the complaints on here.
when the sales associate called me to set up the initial visit she asked about my family. So i told her my wife is in the army and currently deployed to afghanistan. She then proceded to tell me that because we are married that we both had to be there. Therefore i was not allowed to become a member because my wife is deployed.
Needless to say i had a few choice words for the lady and hung up on her. i'm guessing, after reading all the other complaints they wanted both of us there because of the $5000 membership fee. I have never been more pissed off in my life than when the sales associate told me that i wasn't allowed to go to the open house because my wife is deployed.
So because my wife made the choice to fight for all of our freedom we are not allowed to spend our money there.
