    direct buy?

    Advertisements
    Is anyone a member or been to their warehouses? How much is the membership? The closest one to me is 2 hours away and I'm wondering if its really worth it.

    Well, I have to be honest, I always thought they were the biggest crock of shit ever. I saw the commercials and thought "SCAM"

    But my husband is an engineer and his wife is a lead nurse in the burn unit at a big hospital, so they have some pretty big bucks and decided to build their own house.... it's fucking GINORMOUS... like 6-7 bedrooms, I think it's around 6,500 sq ft. HUGE mo fo. They built it from scratch and joined the direct buy thing to furnish all of their inside stuff like their cabinets and all that, and my uncle RAVED about it. He couldn't say enough good things about how much he saved. So, I know of at least one person who was VERY happy. he said he saved a ridiculous amount

    My mom and stepdad bought a membership, and it's a waste of money. They bought a membership because they're building a house, but have since found EVERYTHING cheaper via local supply stores and ebay.

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    I have to laugh a little at how you worded that.

    I can get a one day pass from their website but its a two hour drive one way so I wanted to know if its even worth it. So far it doesn't really sound like it.

    There is one right down the road from my house. My mom told me a guy at her work is a member and likes it but I think it would be a waste of money if you arent trying to change or build a whole house.
