Direct Buy... 3 Years Of Thousands $$$$$$ Down The Drain!!!
Call it greed. We, are guilty, I am first to admit it. And, I've learned.
Its hideous!! For the 'buying of consumer products', first of all, we pay for the cost of "being a member"... Then, pay for the E.O.M......(End of market) products!!!
That's correct. Direct buy is selling end of market products, at a jacked up price, with a sweetened up, nice looking price tag.
So far, in the first 5 months of being "hoggs' at the 'trough', my wife and I have wasted good $$$$ on 2 things;
1.) An "Ashley" recliner, of which, 5 months ago, Direct Buy had it listed as "Ashley millennium collection", I looked it up online at Ashley's web site.......It was listed as such at that time.
But no longer. The collection no longer exists, but, Direct Buy still has sofas and love seats, recliners in the same collection....They bought them up by the truck loads, just as any second rate furniture store would do. Got it??
2.) 3 Weeks ago, we bought a Frigidaire dishwasher from Direct Buy to replace the 12 yr/old Maytag that recently quit us.
The installer began to run the machine through a complete cycle, then 2 hours after the installer left, there appeared a puddle of water in the middle of the dining room floor, some 12 feet away from the kitchen far from the dish washer. Just today, and 3 trips later of plumber, and 2 trips of the service/warranty tech. To install a new door latch, the entire machine has to be replaced because its defective due to an internal leak that has now ruined 1/4 of our hardwood floor in the dining room and the sub-bases in some cabinets. Fridgidaire's liability dept. Is all over it, but will be 3 weeks before the floor and the new machine is replaced.
So, that's only 2 purchases and we've paid $350.00 Just to be "members" and another $371.00 For the p. O. S machine. Then, after three years, 'if' you have been 'good members in good status' by paying your payments on time, you may extend another year for another $250.00!! That's insane!!!!!! Read the contract!! I didn't!!! And I admit it!
That's what greed will buy us!!!!! Welcome home America!!!!
Like I said at the beginning, iam the first to admit I am guilty, but, this kind of greedy, money grabbin' back stabbin' of these prifit-tiers must cease!! It will only stop when people learn "nothing aint cheap and free!"
Stay away from Direct Buy!!!!!!!!!!!
