BBB industry tips are general in nature and are not based on our BBB file experience with this company. The BBB serving Central Ohio provides the following general information concerning buying clubs: The Bureau suggests that if you are considering membership in a buying club, first compare the prices and services of the club to retail stores and other such services. Consider the amount of merchandise you would have to buy at the club's discounted prices to make up for the cost of the membership. Understand the policies of the organization with regard to the following: how you order merchandise, methods of payment, finance charges, delivery and service charges, refunds and exchanges, and warranty rights.
