Back when the wife and I were much younger we got talked into purchasing a membership in one of those member only warehouses. The membership itself was several hundred dollars, so I’m sure the guys selling them made a good bit for each one the sold. I was way out toward the area where I live now and we never did use it very often so it was certainly not worth it at the time, not to mention the fact that I wasn’t making much money at the time either.
Just one of those things I guess. Now that I am making enough I don’t use anything like that, although with directbuy you get to choose from brand name stuff at manufacturer prices. That’s why they have to offer a membership, otherwise the company wouldn’t be able to make any money since there is absolutely no markup on the stuff. That’s pretty nice, particularly for stuff like furniture, which has HUGE markups.
