Niagara Falls Couple Wins $50,000 From DirectBuy

Buffalo, NY (PressExposure) September 25, 2008 -- “Antoine usually opens the mail so it was kind of unusual when he didn’t open the certified letter from DirectBuy,” said Kandice. “When I told him we’d won $50,000 he said ‘yeah, right’. I’ve got to admit, I didn’t believe it at first but am so happy it’s for real.”

Hill and Brundidge entered the $50,000 Home Makeover Contest by attending an Open House at DirectBuy of Buffalo’s showroom in Cheektowaga. The Open House is designed to educate consumers about DirectBuy's unique business model, and how it enables members to avoid traditional markup on top brand-name products for in and around their homes.

Winners of the contest have the option of accepting a makeover or the cash. Currently renting in Niagara Falls, Hill, an assembly worker, and Brundidge, a certified nurse’s aide, opted for the money, to which they hope to put toward a new home.

“We haven’t made too many purchases, just a few things for around our home plus some new school clothes for our son,” said Kandice. “We can’t thank DirectBuy enough. This money will help make our dream of owning our own home come true.”

“Winning $50,000 is a life-changing event, but to have somebody win the giveway at our showroom is incredible,” said Mark Klinger, owner of DirectBuy of Buffalo. “Antoine and Kandice are wonderful people, the kind of people you want to win. Everyone at our showroom is so excited and happy for their good fortune and wish them well in achieving their dream of owning a home."
