Mistakenly I joined Direct Buy in 2007.  Having bought a house that needed a total rebuild I thought it was a good idea to be able to buy just about everything for the house at a substantial discount.  How wrong I was.  The "buy in" price to join was $4600 and a $159 yearly fee after that inital year.  After belonging there for a while I did buy a couple of items through them that were good deals but not "killer" or outstanding prices.  If you are a savy shopper and willing to bargin at stores you can do just as well or better pricewise without the outragous fees.  The final factor in not renewing my membership was the fact that the store that was closest to me (6 miles) CLOSED!!  The next closest store was over 50 miles and in a highly developed (re:congested) area.  No way was I going to drive over an hour just to price items that I know could be beat. 

Keep in mind there are no guarantees that the store you start with will be open down the road.  Shop smart, save money and don't waste your  time and money joining this rip off.
