Direct Buy-UCC Buyer Beware- Saving money an ILLUSION with DirectBuy...Thousands of Dollars in High Fees Paid up Front - Binding Contracts Before you ORDER Jefferson Louisiana

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

If any one is an average consumer, they better look closely at the tanglements involved in the DirectBuy scheme of business. It cost 4330.00 in Membership and if you do the math it may leave you obligated to buy through them just trying to recoup your losses for the next 10 years.

By the time you add to the cost of shipping most of the vendors products and the handling fee, all you are saving is an insignificant amount that any company in business would need to display and service your merchandise. You can also get the headaches of finding out that the merchandise you order may not be all the QUALITY they lead you to believe.

Anyone who thinks High End Furniture is Ashley is mis-informed.The cheap Bedroom set they Boast about on their infomercial is nothing but junk. After all the aggravation, How will anyone get a return on their investment even if they buy two of these sets? How many bedrooms does one family really have to furnish? YOU HAVE TO MAKE {10} TEN OR SO PURCHASES SAVING YOU 400.00 OR SO DOLLARS EACH TIME to GET BACK THE MONEY INVESTED then turn around and ORDER MORE so it's profitable for you to be a member.

It is a vicious circle of poverty for the vast majority of Americans if they can't keep buying. Because now they've lost money. Unfortunatly, the rich get richer and poor get poorer. How do you even know good quality if you don't see it? Then you run around all over town trying to find out what this manufacturer is producing and if it is a good deal for you. Who will answer your queations about these products you shop for? Does it have particle board and fiberglass moulded resin?

At the presentation given by the director at their open house described an entertainment center as solid cherry wood. It was so obvious that it was not solid cherry. False information was handed out at precise moments and on purpose to build value.

And as for the flooring, the contractor doing the work is able to get pricing just like they're offering because they deal with the same flooring centers that the contractors do and get the same discounts. I am glad I did alot of homework before going to this presentation and happy to say I am going to spread that fee of 4300.00 out to the places that give me good products and service and most of all, take the headaches out of buying.

In that HEFTY MEMBERSHIP FEE, DirectBuy is inevitably getting the little profit your neighborhood retailer would make.

The sales consultants at the retailers make a small percent of your business and services are provided in return. Why would anyone tip a waiter or waitress before being seated and served a meal? What is to guarantee they will even provide you with a service? READ THE CONTRACT FOR YOURSELF IF YOU WILL.. IT IS BINDING YOU TO THEM AND NO OTHER STORE RIGHT UP FRONT.. SPENDING ALOT TO SAVE A LITTLE!

Another thing I should note that.. be proud that you are an American and have the freedom of choice as you keep people working in this country in small ways. Economically, if we all elimanated the middle men, which DIRECTBUY really is and not saying so, then we will inevitably will pay for it by supporting the welfare recepients and unemployment lines with those "saved" dollars. What do people think happened when 80% of the Furniture Manufacturing went overseas to China and elsewhere? Americans didn't want to pay the labor cost of their own people here manufacturing,,, because it was too EXPENSIVE??? Think about how many thousands of jobs were lost. In reality, none of us can afford DirectBuy and it's method of operation.

I encourage any one else to report to this web site any info.
