I found the add on the internet and requested information from Amy. I explained that I was 87 years old and was interested in an area rug (not a oriental rug) and a wall unit. Amy kept calling to remind me of the apointment and that there would be bagels and coffee with the orientation.

My husband and I left for the 12;30 apointment at DirectBuy. We were traveling from Riverdale, N.Y. to Elmsford, N.Y. about 20 miles.

When we arrived we sat down with a representative of the company who proceeded to tell us that the minimum membership would be $2000.00 for three months time.

Since we were not interested in furnishing a home we told her that this was a ripoff and we never should have been encouraged by Amy when she called me and I explained that we needed a very small purchase.

I'm so glad I joined

AUTHOR: Jacob - (USA)

I almost didn't join because I only needed a few pieces of furniture for my dining room and didn't think the membership fee would be worth it.  Thank god I took a second to think about how much I spend each year and did the math.  It all made sense once I ran the numbers, and I save at least $1,500 a year.

Also, I never though I would buy a new dishwasher this year, but mine broke unexpectedly.  I ordered a new one and had it delivered that saturday and saved $625.  The leak ruined some of the flooring too, which was 2k at Home Depot but was only $400 with Direct Buy.
