Isn't that like the timeshares of home improvement? And there have been numerous threads about them on here btw.

Only worth joining if you are building a new house and need to buy every piece of furniture and every appliance.

You pay a membership fee and you get all sorts of "deals" on home improvement crap.

And aren't smart enough to shop around or willing/able to negotiate prices on those things.

It preys on the weak minded.

You have to pay a one-time fee of $75 per item for processing, shipping and handling.

I wouldn't recommend it - you're paying for yesterday's technology.

...and they "crush sell" you by saying that if you don't sign on today, you cannot come back for another visit or look for at least a year.

We have some friends, or more like acquaintances, who are members and are constantly trying to get us to take an official guest visit. I'm sure they get a % cut of our "fee" if we sign on.

The Amway of Home Improvement, IMHO.
