I agree totally. I emailed the owner and explained that due to unforseen circumstances, that I could no longer pay my membership dues and they were totally unsympathetic to my situation!!! There HAS to be something I can do to get out of this membership!

Are you still in your contract? What did they tell you when you tried to cancel?

It will be a miracle and a prayer answered. I long for the day they
are prevented from doing any business whatsoever in any state.
This company is horrible, the franchise owners are filled with
greed, neglect, and dishonesty. They used their corporate dollars
to cover up quite a few things that some of us have knowledge about.

Direct Buy is a total JOKE. I bought into there BS almost three years ago. I have tried about 20 times to buy something though them at there so called special pricing. After getting the 'Direct Buy' pricing I was always able to get a better price on the internet and didn't have to wait 3-5 weeks as they always stated in there quotes. On thing I was interested in when I joined was that they could bet the warehouse pricing on TV's and electrical products. I requested quotes on 6 TV's since I joined and they couldn't get close to getting them through Amazon.com. Don't waste your money!! I am going to sue or join a Class Action suit against them for my money.

DIRECT BUY IS A TOTAL SCAM, SO COMPLICATED TO BUY ANYTHING EITHER ON LINE OR AT THEIR FACILITIES THEY MAKE IT SO DIFICULT TO DO ANYTHING.
ALL VICTIMS FROM THESE SCAMMERS NEED TO GET TOGHETHER AND STOP THEM FROM CONTINUING TO STEAL PEOPLE'S MONEY IS UNVELIVABLE THAT THEY ARE STILL OPERATING IN THE GOOD USA AND STILL RUNNING ALL THIS COMERCIALS ON TV ABOUT HOW GOOD THEY ARE.
LETS GO AFTER THEM CLASS ACTION SUIT ALL THE WAY.

We were suckered by Direct Buy too: 1) our showing ended right before closing so we only had 5 minutes to sign the unread contract; 2) they state, "...whether you need it now or 10 years from now..." when in fact they know we will be paying for years on a fraudulent contract and membership is only about 1.5 years and 3) they then close the location you were near and you are required to drive across state to acquire products. As learned in college, because they changed their name (i.e., Direct Buy Club), they "may" already be in Bankruptcy! Thank you Lord, it could not have happened to a more deserving business group of criminals!

I hate direct buy there a bunch of thefts who should be put in jail with the rest the the criminals in the world. I am from Canada Ontario and we were told the same lies saying were are going to save all this money if we joing and pay $5000. We look at the prices in the price books and notices it is cheapter to purchase items at the store then go there and have the steal money from us. Never join again and hope they get what is coming to them.

I am personally a directbuy member and I find it saves me quite a bit of money. It all depends what you are buying. We just purchased an old house, so buying tiles and things like that through directbuy saves us a lot of money for our renovations, and we have saved our membership fees within a year of being a member. Also, I feel most of the posts above about directbuy are from one dis-satisfied customer. If you notice, most of the posts are posted by someone with very poor grammar skills and uses the word 'there' for 'their'.

Name me one product that you can find for cheap and I will tell you what price I can get it for at directbuy.

I will say that they use some pretty strange tactics for trying to get you to sign up. However, we were able to sucker them into letting us wait a year before signing up. It's all sales at the beginning, but you really do save when you're purchasing a lot of large items.

I joined DirectBuy a few years ago to furnish a home. My dining room set was available from both DirectBuy and a local furniture store. The furniture store had free delivery and set up and the cost was the SAME as DirectBuy without its delivery charge--something I needed since I had no means of moving a breakfront, let alone the table, six chairs and a server. Other items I ordered were never available and no one ever contacted me to inform me that the order could not be filled. I did order a butcher's rack which I picked up at the freight company which was closer to my home than the DirectBuy showroom was --the workers at the freight company at least helped me. Larger items at DirectBuy itself are a nightmare--no one will help and I, a single senior citizen woman, had to push, pull and try to move boxes into my SUV. Hooray for the lawsuit!

Prove that the prices are cheaper in the store. I'm a member and I saved much more money than the membership fees. I think most of you don't use the service or are lying. My experience has been very satifactury and without complaint. I also see many of the complainers on this website cant spell well at all. Credibility is lost when your spelling is wrong and most PC's do have spell check.

Very Interesting to all that post "positive " experiences with Direct Buy...seems that grammer is more important than the money people have been scammed. First of all I would like to send my heart felt sorrows to all that have had losses and the numerous negative experiences...and THANK YOU FOR SAVING ME FROM JOINING. I find great deals on the internet and local shopping...it is time consuming BUT Id rather spend money elsewhere. GOOD LUCK IN THE LAWSUITS. I didnt use spellcheck
