I’ve seen the infomercials on Sunday morning television for Direct Buy. People claim to save thousands, or tens of thousands of dollars of home furnishings and building supplies. I felt like that’s too good to be true. I thought it might be a scam so I decided to give them a call and check it out.
DirectBuy is NOT a scam
The lady was a pretty big help with my questions, no complaints about her. But still, I felt it’d be important to visit the Direct Buy showcase in order to conduct a real DirectBuy review. I still, despite the lady being pretty friendly on the phone, thought there was some sort of DirectBuy scam.
So I visited the DirectBuy showcase and it was pretty neat. I actually didn’t have much time to stay, but I watched their presentation and it seemed like a pretty solid gig. I made a friend there who was also there to see the presentation – he was a pretty cool guy. I think he ended up joining, but I did not. Mainly because I just don’t have any stuff to buy yet. I’ll revisit the DirectBuy showcase next year and may join.
DirectBuy Update 9-14-11
If you were hesitant to join DirectBuy, I hear they are doing a 30-day money back trial. I have not verified they definitely have this yet, but I will keep looking into it.
This seems to be a pretty hot topic, so I’ve decided to revisit Directbuy.
After I received several emails inquiring whether or not I found anything else out about the company, I decided to do a little research I found that there are many direct buy reviews out there.
One lady wrote to me and summed it up well:
“DirectBuy membership, It works if you do it right. My husband and I went to the presentation, and it seems like a good idea. Yes, you will save money, it seems, but it’s obviously only a good idea if you’re going to buy something. I have no complaints about direct buy, but I could see where someone would be unhappy if they joined and never used the service. I did that with cosco one year. Paid to join but never went there because I was too lazy.”
