Melaleuca

i am writing this review as a unhappy consumer. not with the company or the products but with all these ridiculous accusations! you people are making a wonderful company look bad under false pretenses! i personally am a customer and i have not had not one bad experience! people talking about how they have to buy products every month....ok? and??? thats the whole point! you switch your shopping to a different company that provides safer products for a better value! They also give you 100 dollars worth of free products.....what is the problem?! if you dont like the products then ok.....cancel. and all these people saying that they dont let you cancel is BS! i signed up with a friend. she cancelled.....easy as pie. there were absolutely no problems for her. i am not a person trying to sign anyone up.....i only shop and i am freaking glad i do! i save money.....who doesnt want to save money! your already spending money on *** at the stores. for those people having problems it doesnt make sense! maybe its not them....but its YOU!!!

I agree with this post too. I also started with Melalueuca last year.

I had just lost my job and was getting behind in bills. When I was told that I could get better products to have around my gets for an easier price and shipped straight to my door, I quickly agreed. Not only that ut then I started telling people about the items and they started buying under me. I just got a check deposited from them for $2398.18.

And just for telling people what I thought about the products. Best Job Ever!!

I to have a complaint with all the people who are making false accusations about Melaleuca. First of all Melaleuca is a Fortune 500 company with an A rating with the Better Business Bureau. Also, they have won their Blue Chip award 3 times. There is a fee of $29.00 which pays for the kit you get. In this kit you get your shopping catalog a DVD that explains about melaleuca's products, how melaleuca works, and their compensation plan. You also get their Leadership in Action Magazine, and some enrollment forms. After that it is $12.00 per year. Sam's Club is $35.00 per year. Sam doesn't offer enviromentally safe products or a compensation plan to their customers. Every month Melaleuca offers specials like for example:During this month of May you can sign up for only a dollar instead of $29.00. So far they have been offering this about every other month. Yes! There is a minium purchase of 35 points per month. With shipping, handling, and tax it comes out to be between $50-60.00 bucks a month. You are not spending any new money all you are doing is switching stores from where you normally buy your products. You only buy what you need. New members also get $100.00 in free products. You get $20.00 in loyalty shopping dollars each month for 5 months to try products you normally wouldn't have tried. You also get coupons that are available for online orders. After your 5 months are up then you get 10% back on your order each month that you can use to get free products for ever. There are 3 catagories as a member you can choose from. Catagory 1 is for customers who only want to be customers. Catagory 2 customers want to sign up just enough customers to get their products paid for each month. Catagory 3 customers do this as a business so that they can make a life changing experience. Yes! There is a thing called a back up order, which I will explain. If you forget to place an order that month Melaleuca will ship your back up order in which you can customize yourself. That way if you do get a back up order you will be getting products that you know you will use. The purpose of the back up order is so that you won't lose your preferred customer status any commissions that you have coming, and if nobody ordered every month there would be no residual income to pay out. "Make sence"? I have many customers that aren't doing this as a business, but still earn $30-40.00 a month just for being customers. This is paying 1/2 of their product order each month. You can cancel at anytime. Their customer service department is the best I have ever worked with. As far as taking money from your account they can't do that unless you have authorized them to do so.They only debit or charge your credit card for the emount of your purchase only. As far as a bad experience goes you either misunderstood the program or the person who showed it to you didn't present it to you right. Melaleuca is a great company and I'm blessed to be a part of their family. If you live within a 100 mile radius of Thief River Falls, MN call me @ 218-688-1970 or e-mail me at Vestwell15@gmail.com, and I will be more than happy to drive to your house and show you this great program the right way.

Have a Great Day!

Melaleuca Katie Lynn Jenai "***" quadruple harrassment

Katie Lynn Jenai "***" Allexandro of Charlotte NC harrassed the ***t out of me to buy the OVERPRICED CONVENTIONAL STUFF. IT IS NOT NATURAL OR ORGANIC AS SHE SAID.. This red haired fruit and nut job moved to Charlotte from Michigan in 2010. She has harassed everyone in our apartment complex to buy this ***. I was *** and did.They charged my bank account and wouldn't stop. They autoshipped and wouldn't take it back. And then they wouldn't stop charging. And the whole time their sales person "Katie Lynn Jenai ***" kept begging everyone to buy this/become a distributer while walking around smelling like unwashed old person. Disgusting experience. Tried to complain, no one listens. AVOID THIS PRODUCT. AVOID THIs woman. The dishwasher detergent is useless. The laundry soap is not as good as 7th generation. The diet stuff was made in a factory that makes shell fish so it will knock shell fish allergy sufferers up real bad. Overpriced. Shipping too high. Auto ship is horrible.

I am so glad that you have posted these comments. It is funny how the people that are a part of this cult come out in droves to tell you how nutty you are when you are merely stating your experience.

It sounds as if they are afraid of being stuck at the bottom of they pyramid.

Thanks to you and several posters like you. I have the information that I needed to make what I believe to be an informed decision NOT to sign up to sell this product.

Thank you!

Melaleuca has great laundry products, and most of their products are top notch. I personally don't care for the automatic dishwashing liquid, or the lemon dish liquid, but their cleaning products are great, and environmentally safe. They only require you order 35 base points a month, and if you don't like that, write them a letter of resignation.

This stuff does work and she doesn't sound a very good person that was trying represent want she loves. I love this company, but I wouldn't force stuff anything on anyone.

Sorry for your bad experience. It works awsome for other family and I shown result for my children and family. I love to share the information to people but it their choice what that they want to do with and also their choice if they even want to get the information.

I dont hide anything, but that is just me not everyone else in the world. I am such a caring person and only try to think of other on how this could help them out.

For the original poster - regardless of the 3 days to rescind, the company has a policy where you can cancel within a certain amount of time from initial enrollment and get your full enrollment fee refunded and you can also return the products for a full refund. You just need to download the form and fax it to the corporate offices.

If you want, I can look up the information for you about the enrollment fee refund. livedebtfree1@gmail.com

Even though it may be legal, I was deeply disapointed to read in Mother Jones that Melaluca gave one million dollars to the Romney Super Pac. I thought their focus was providing environmentally friendly products. Those right wing folks do not support a green agenda....

First of all I am a Republican who happens to use Melaleuca and I think it is wonderful that they support such a wonderful man as Mitt Romney. You should be ashamed of yourself dragging politics into what is suppose to help your household.

Educate yourself and you will find that the Democrats are all full of it when it comes to green production.

Look exactly where their money goes and watch how they live and if you have any brains you will see that it's all smoke and mirrors. It's a farce designed to lure people like you in.

I am the Mark Kenney libeled in this post and the best summery of all of this is captured in the Daniel Patrick Moynihan quote when he was responding to James Buckley. He said "You are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts".

First of all, to Concerned, Lynette and Tikvah, you only have one side of the story. I shall share mine here in a moment but in the future, try to remember you are on the internet, on a web site full of partial truths and packed with posts from emotionally irritated people, most of whom claim honest companies and people are Satan incarnate because someone didn't roll over and give them the store for free because they were really upset. Look at the nameof this site for goodness sakes... pissed consumer..

Anyone using these so called Customer Advocate sites for honest research has no idea how to do honest research. This is at best a glorified message board where angry people exaggerate, attack others and simply blow off steam. There are thousands of reports on here that Wal Mart and other credible retailers are scams for example. You really must read this stuff with a giant grain of salt and when it comes to Melaleuca, I would insist on setting up a real appointment with someone and getting the entire presentation from top to bottom to get all the information instead of trying to let emotional people sway you away from real facts.

To really???... I think I know who you are and thanks but I don't need to be defended here. Your personal issues with the OP are just that and I wont get in the middle of that stuff. I do indeed try to help as many people as I can and in those attempts as anyone who has tried to help others knows, you can only help those who will let you help them.

I want to be clear about this too... I do not work for Melaleuca directly, I am not an employee of Melaleuca and I most certainly do not speak for Melaleuca. I am simply a person with an Independent Marketing Agreement with them and nothing more. I have indeed talked with legal at the company and made them aware of this page. If they chose to post or not post, that is entirely up to them and I will respect whatever they choose to do with that.

As to the personal accusations above, my recollections are much different. I have never met the OP. We did have one very brief exchange thru Facebook IM that came about because her enroller was very worried and concerned.

The way it was painted to me was that the OP was really excited to try some products so she happily enrolled. Suddenly with no warning at all to the enroller, the OP cancelled and refused to return any phone calls FB messages or cell phone text messages. It was as if she fell of the planet. Her enroller was terrified that she as an enroller had done something very wrong so she reached out to her enroller for help. Her enroller tried to reach out to the OP and was again blown off so they both came to me asking for my help.

I saw no reason to make it any more complicated than it had to be so instead of calling and leaving a bunch more messages I simply sent a message on FB saying I saw she had canceled, can I help at all, etc. We had a few exchanges (which I have copies of too) and in review of them, I see nothing either one of is said that was really bad, wrong or even a little but unprofessional with the only exception being how it all ended. More on that in a moment.

In the exchange, I mentioned that some people cancel because they are upset with their enroller. I thought this may have been the case since she was apparently no longer speaking to her enroller. I explained that when people do that it is called "Enroller Dissatisfaction" and is simply retaliation but that shouldn't be a reason to throw the baby out with the bath water. That has been twisted above to look like I coldly accused her of retaliation and that was not the case at all. I was simply reaching out in an effort to help.

The exchange ended coldly as she asked me to just to respect her decision about it and not contact her again. So, I took that at face value, blocked her off and moved on with life. I honestly thought it was a done issue until I saw this page.

All I can say here is what I have already said in private message. Melaleuca is worth far more than to let anyone or anything keep it from you. Even if you think I'm evil, you shouldn't let me keep you and your family from having the very best quality products on earth at the very best value found anywhere.

I am certainly very sorry for anything that I said or did that came off wrong to anyone, I would have not even been involved at all had two gals who cared and suspected a problem didn't ask me to reach out.

For me, the lesson here in all of this is for those enrolled to communicate with their enrollers. If you want to suspend, don't avoid your enroller, pick up the phone and talk honestly to them. Share your concerns. They cared enough to share Melaleuca with you in the first place so you should care enough to talk to them back. If that had happened here, none of this would have ever happened.

Melaleuca is NOT a pyramid scheme. As another commenter noted, a pyramid scheme only benefits the few at the top on the backs of the new recruits, and the pyramid goes on forever.

Melaleuca limits is Marketing Executives to seven levels.

Additionally, commissions are paid on customers' purchases of products; a pyramid scheme is based on new enrollment fees and getting the new guys to buy more and more product from their "uplines" to resell to their "downlines". You find none of this in Melaleuca.

I am so very happy that I did not sign up with this company. I contacted someone offering a work at home job via the classified section on our local internet website.

The ad stated that there was no selling, no inventory and no money investment.

The job description stated that what you would actullay be doing was to help people set up their online shopping accounts. All you were required to have was a computer and a phone. Everything would be done online. Simple?

In the very beginning, this all sounded very suspicious. If everything is done online, then people can set up their own shopping accounts on the company website...they do not need my help.

When I did some additional research into this work at home business and from comments that I have read here and on otherboards, I made the decision that I was not going to get involved with this company. There is no way that I am going to give anyone my banking account information, when someone tells me that I have no need to worry if "I" forget to place an order "they" will place it for me and take the money out of my banking account. "NO Way" This "Back Up Order" policy Melaleuca has is a very poor business practice...and I have never heard of any other company doing this.

In addition, I was never told that I would be required to buy any of the products, let alone $70.00 per month or I would lose my preferred customer account.

In conclusion, I am not sure if this company is doing anything illegal or not. But I do know that they have some very bad polices and they are not a company that I would want to do business with.
