DirectBuy of MapleShade, NJ Informative - What you NEED to know

Review by EnterpriseLady on 2007-08-10
MAPLE SHADE, NEW JERSEY -- For those of you who are paid members at any DirectBuy facility - I bet you didn't know that just by shopping you earn what is called 'credits' these credits are to be returned to you in the form of cash back...upon making purchases at the facility.

You may want to slow down a bit about posting this kind of stuff as it sounds like court may be in your future?

I have never read anything good about DirectBuy. It seems DirectBuy, it's owners etc. do very well while the members get screwed over on a daily basis. I read where one guy bought a couch for a few dollars less than a furniture store but by the time DirectBuy got finished sticking it to him with shipping charges and stuff he paid more than if he would have gone to Levitz.

I hate internet swear campaigns. Take her to court if you were wronged. This stuff has nothing to do with their customers, including these credits. Car dealers can keep rebates if they want.

Thanks for the info. We belong to Direct Buy, but didn't know about "credits". We did save a lot on vinyl windows (high quality) but have also noticed that smaller items like furniture are very over-priced, as previously mentioned , by the time delivery charges are tacked on. We probably made a big mistake by joining this organization.

Direct Buy is not a scam, but you do have to be an educated consumer. We did a lot of research on the retail prices of items we wanted to buy long before we went to a DB open house. the sales agents were very responsible and took a lot of time answering our questions and allowed us to go through some of the manufacturers books and compare prices right there and then. it was obvious that some things would in fact be good buys and others were not. we joined and our very first purchase almost returned our membership fee in the savings on several immediate purchases, plus we got reimbursed if the calculated shipping fees were less than the actual fees we paid when we placed our orders. the answer is to always educate yourself first when ever you buy, look on BBB to see if there any complaints about a company, talk to the owner of the franchise, learn how the business works, be willing to take careful measurements before you order, and use the service as often as possible to maximize the original cost for joining any kind of buying service. The owners of any type of franchise may not all be equal when it comes to customer service, perhaps the owner of the DB we joined is more responsible than others, but the ultimate responsibility lies on the people who join the buying service. An educated consumer is the best consumer.
