I looked into it...didn't "join"

Huge Scam
Well, OK...only some people have actually been technically ripped off
The others didn't really save any money though...not what the ads say
Not even close, once you add the membership fees, shipping, etc...
They only felt ripped off, technically they weren't actually ripped off
Seriously though, if you think about it, with how competitive things are today, everybody can just pop on line to check prices, and they still get people thinking they can save thousands on cabinets and dining room sets just because it's over the internet or they join a "club"

It just doesn't happen that way

Second the opinion of Slickshift. I personally have no experience with it, but know of persons who do, and they were all dissapointed. The advertising hype was way ahead of what it delivered.

Thumbs down

Just go out to google and type in "Direct Buy Complaints" !

Then come back here and tell us what you think.

I agree with the others. I m somehow on their mailing list and they snail mail spam me a few times a year. I decided to google them along with the word scam and there are just endless complaints. The prices are nothing you cant negotiate on your own, then add the shipping, fees, etc.
