FARGO, N.D., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Direct Savings Club, LLC, a new membership buying club, launched its website (www.directsavingsclub.com) today with the intention of revolutionizing the way that Americans furnish and remodel their homes, using a platform that eliminates high retail mark-ups by bringing consumers closer to the source of their purchases.
With a strong background in the retail industry, the founders and staff of Direct Savings Club bring decades of experience to this innovative project, which focuses on making thousands of products from hundreds of brand-name manufacturers more affordable for the average consumer.
"It is my belief that consumers should be able to afford everything they want for their home," said Direct Savings Club co-founder and CEO Dan Austin. "My experience has taught me that the buying club savings model absolutely works. Any past issues with similar models have been due to the integrity with which they were delivered. We've eliminated that issue by structuring our service in such a way that our members benefit immediately, and if they are not satisfied, then we will not profit."
Austin, whose previous experience includes high-ranking positions at a successful furniture buying club and major big-box retailers, founded Direct Savings Club to redefine the structure of buying clubs and bring more benefit to the consumer. By implementing a low, one-time annual membership fee of $99, Austin's model aims to deliver genuine, immediate savings on brand-name furniture items, appliances, electronics and more. The Direct Savings Club model saves their members from the costly sign-up fees, long-term contracts, high-pressure sales tactics and hidden costs that have equated to consumers spending thousands of dollars on membership and feeling "scammed" by the existing membership buying club industry leaders.
"Times are tough, and people shouldn't have high barriers of entry to save what they deserve on having a great home environment," said Austin. "This belief is what makes us different from any other buying club in the market. Our members won't have to spend thousands to start saving."
Prospective members sign a confidentiality agreement promising not to use the Direct Savings Club prices for comparison-shopping in retail stores and pay the low up-front annual membership fee of $99. The exchange is an average of 35% savings on many Home Furnishings departments including Living Room, Dining Room, Bedroom, Bathroom, Home Appliances, Small Appliances, Electronics, and Home Decor to go along with such services as lease-to-own options and white glove delivery. To make sure they deliver on their promise, Direct Savings Club offers to refund the annual fee to anyone who does not make up for its cost on their first furniture purchase over $300.
With the motto "buy smart, live well," Direct Savings Club makes use of collective buying power model to benefit the lives of its members and provide quality products and services at more than competitive prices.
