So my wife scheduled a demo with Direct Buy

Presentation is tonight at the BR location. We know they are scum but she agreed just to get some free nights at a hotel and a 200.00 restaurant gift card supposedly just for sitting through the presentation. Anyone have some ideas on how to mess with these people? Ive read a bunch of websites on direct buy horror stories so I have a few things to bring up but figured Id seek the wisdom of the OT as well.

Thanks

They called me too. Said I had to be married so I told them I was married to a man, illegally in this state.

I've saved $1000's of dollars but if you don't plan on doing any big projects its probably not worth it

They are going to pressure the crap out of you to buy, and if you don't you will have to fight for the gifts. Have fun being there for 3 hours minimum. Hope you get a BJ out of this.

Furniture. You can get it really cheap - but the membership costs thousands.

It is a buying club for big ticket items like sofas, entertainment centers, grills, pool tables, etc.

Really the only way to save money using it is if you were building a large house (or multiple houses) from scratch.

You would be amazed at how much you can save from companies by just asking for a discount.

Have fun trying to actually use those free nights. Usually they have to be used by a certain date and there are so many restrictions on when/where they can be used.


I've sat through a couple time share presentations before and it's just not worth it. You will be harassed big time there. They will try to pressure you into buying and will try several different tactics to do so(the "send in the manager cause we think you deserve a deal" scam, the "what, you can't afford this, you can't afford to pass this up" scam, the "let's make them wait all night long until they buy something from us" scam, the "why not buy this trial program for a fraction of the original package but you don't know yet that you have to upgrade it to actually use it" scam)
