    I did along time ago. You endup paying 2 times the price, and it can only be used with sirtin comps. and no it is not worth it.

    My mom was part of a Barter Club years ago when she was still managing her biz. Truth was, we almost never needed the services/products of the other people who were part of the club, and we never did get anywhere near our money's worth. The best things we ever used it for was replacing the kitchen appliances (they were approaching 30 years old) and for PIZZA at our local restaurant, but once they bailed out on the system, there really wasn't anything left for us but carpet cleaning etc (and we have a Bissell!)

    I'd avoid it like the plague.
