Direct Buy charged us $5000.00 for a membership and promised that we would earn the fees back when we built our new house. So far, we have have found only minimal savings on appliances and no savings in most other areas.
Shipping and handling costs are outrageous and the time it takes to pour through their numerous catalogs is never ending. They advertise kitchen and interior decorators but charge extra for these services.
Sales personnel do not know much about the products they sell and are not helpful once you have purchased the membership. Don't fall for this!
