DirectBuy Informative - Direct Buy - How to be a Good Consumer
I have read several negative reviews about Direct Buy. All of those reviews have the same thing in common. It appears that the reviewers did not pay attention to the information presented when they purchased their memberships and they also didn't ask pertinent questions before purchasing membership. I am a Direct Buy member. However, I did not become a member when I first learned of this company. Why? Because I don't shop retail, so there was no savings involved in becoming a member. I also did not want to wait several weeks for my items to come in. That was before my home flooded and had to be gutted. Once that happened, I joined Direct Buy because it was the smartest move I could make to save money on my extensive renovations. The Customer Service at Direct Buy is very poor. The ordering system is inconvenient and time consuming. Being forced to drive 30 minutes to the location to check prices and order items is beyond ridiculously inconvenient. However, I saved over $20,000, so it was worth it to me. Of course, I spent many thousands to get that savings. If you aren't going to buy high ticket items that are substantially reduced through Direct Buy, then you probably don't want to join this club. Or if you want to receive items quickly. Or if you don't want the hassle of having to go to one location to check pricing. Direct Buy is very, very good for specific types of purchasing. Pay attention at the presentation. Do the research before you buy a membership. Ask plenty of questions.
By being a good consumer you'll be happy with your Direct Buy membership purchase and you won't be one of the many who write complaints about Direct Buy and wish they could get your money back.
