A few years ago a friend and I were going to remodel a kitchen. I went to DirectBuy for one of their 'open houses' and totally got scammed.
Their membership was around $4,000. and they were very pushy when I said no. They set me up with a financial institution on payments - when I didn't want to pay, they sicced a collection agency on me. I will never ever use DirectBuy, even though I have paid for the membership.
I want to warn everyone - stay away from them - don't go - don't get involved. Not worth it at all. And their products are not all that fantastic.
The place I went to did not even have a good selection of 'samples'. Buyer Beware - for sure.
