DirectBuy

  1. the next few month we'll be purchasing a lot of home furniture and appliances...
    Is there anyone who can provide some information about DirectBuy services/products?

    http://www.directbuy.com/

    I'm specifically interested in quality of products, membership dues, etc. Is it really as good as they advertise?

    We inquired a few years ago and membership cost about five THOUSAND dollars!

    We thanked them for the information and declined.

    Dh's parents were looking into the place and they were very high pressure just to take a look. Think time share. . . . you know bring check book, credit card, etc just for a "no obligation, informational" meeting. They wouldn't give any info over the phone. You had to have an appointment (in store of course) to get any information at all. They cancelled the appointment if there was that much sales pressure off the bat before they even bought anything.

    As for quality, it's definitely there. Sil's parents belong and we inherited a couch, table and chairs from them. They would have lasted 100 years easily. The only reason we got rid of the couch was b/c they had an old dog that marked the skirt. We Febrezed it to no end w/o success, but it was the sturdiest piece of furniature we will probably ever own. Beautiful too. . . . . .

    I really appreciate the info.

    I assumed it was going to cost some mula $$$.
    $5,000 is a lot but if the price is low as they advertise I guess it wouldn't be so bad.

    We just purchased a new home and need new furniture.

    I'm planning to purchase furniture for living, dining, family, office, and breakfast room, a stainless steel refrigerator, upgrade our bathroom (master bedroom), and more all within 6 months. (starting October)

    They do offer a 30 day free pass - maybe I'll visit and compare the savings.

    I love that layout! And mazel tov.

    I like the 30-day free pass. I'd certainly do a little comparison shopping before ponying up mega moolah to join.

    That is exactly what I heard. Hard sells always set my alarms off. Plus it's my understanding there is some sort of annual maintenance fee. Sounds almost like a time share.

    DirectBuy is worse than a Condo. They promise you the world, they even promised us they would return our money if we didn't save more than the cost when we build our house this past year. We were allowed by the builder to buy apliances and sears beat them by over $1200, tile, all plumbing fixtures such as tups, showers, stools, sinks, jacuzzi, and Ferguson beat them by over $2700, Paint which Sherman Williams set us up with an account that was a better discount than Direct Buy. They cannnot get every thing you need or want. If you want to us them, you must buy what they can get, except that you will pay shipping and handling on top to the cost of everthing, and have to put it in yourself.
    IF you know how to shop, save your money and shop elsewhere. then get what you want.
