Direct Buy -- total scam or useful?
OK, I know Direct Buy has been discussed on this forum because I did a search. But there apparently is no thread that discusses Direct Buy specifically and I don't want to sort through everything from "OT - have you adopted a dog" to various appliances to ferret out information!
I've apparently never heard of it until today when someone mentioned it to me and now I'm wondering what is really is. I already have my appliances, know where I'm getting my cabinets, etc. so I'm not sure what I would need it for. After listening to a bit of the website pitch I clicked on the next Google entry: http://www.infomercialscams.com/scams/direct_buy_scams
WOW, hundreds of people apparently writing to say that it costs about $5,000 to join and it's a HUGE scam.
So now I'm seriously curious about people's experience with Direct Buy. I'm guessing that if it looks like a way to avoid shopping for better prices it's too good to be true. ??
