A dream possibility: AGA?
Now, I'm not here to debate the benefits -- or not -- of DirectBuy. I've been a member since 2005 and since a fire caused us to rebuild, this membership has saved me $1000s.
Surprisingly enough, and I know you'll find this really hard to believe, this is about ME.
I just got the DirectBuy catalogue. AGA is one of their new vendors. I haven't gone so far as to call to ask the discount percentage, but I'm sitting here dreaming of a gorgeous AGA stove in my kitchen. Sure, I'd have to put in gas, but a small price to pay, right!?
I'm heading up there anyway today to pick up 4 cabinets I was able to afford from Norcroft. At .45% off retail? I find it worthwhile occasionally to splurge.
I know others don't feel they got their $$s' worth out of DirectBuy memberships, but between plumbing and electrical fixtures, mattresses, furniture, cabinets, flooring (cork & hard wood), ceramic tile, front doors, etc.? It's paid for itself. No, no affiliation.
