Melaleuca is misleading

Trying to cancel my account with Melaleuca lead me to an online form that appears to be the cancellation form. It isn't. You must submit a paper form. This is misleading as the know that the online form is only accessed when looking to quit, but they hang on to you for one more month. Some Melaleuca products perform well, but unlike their claims, the cost is expensive and shipping makes it even more expensive. I really couldn't support most of their claims of superior performance. It is an interesting business model just not very good as a consumer model.

This was a very interesting article. It is always encouraging to hear nutritional success stories.

My curiosity encouraged further research only to discover 397 nutritional products with more daily nutrition and as much as 15 times more product for the dollar. If you want to learn more, call me at 602-909-7416.

First of All, the backup order plan from Melaleuca works, if and only if you fail to order your 35 product point commitment does it come into play, this is explained during the presentation and should have been explained by the person who invited you as I do. It is better than Auto Ship Programs with other company out there, wherein the same products each and every month is shipped because all they have to offer is a limited number of products.

With Melaleuca, There are more than 350 consumable products to choose from. So, Auto Ship Program don’t work. As far as the 35 points commitment to get products at wholesale is nothing, just switch stores do your shopping at Melaleuca. I have NOT ordered lesser than 64 points each and every month that I have been with them.

Second, like Amazon, Ebay or any other sites that do business except for companies that issues RMA (electronics), shipping and handling are services rendered or when you return products, you pay. The question is, when you have used up your vitamins for 90 days and decide that they don’t work or didn’t FEEL any improvement or energy, can you return them? With Melaleuca, YES, up to 90 days warranty, no questions asked. Third, I paid $29.- to join Melaleuca for the promise of non-chemical base products and it did make my family healthier with Natural based products, in fact my grandson who had asthma for 6yrs.

was healed just by using their detergent, as per me, for the past 4 yrs, my oncologist or cancer doctor has blood test after blood test done on me because I might have Leukemia or cancer of the blood. And after taking their Vitamins for 4 months, I cried when they told me my white cell count went down to normal to everybody's amazement. Tell me, What price do you put on your HEALTH? Added to that, the revenue sharing program has helped me, I made over 20K last year, just for telling people about products that are GREAT and this all happened for a $29 investment, call me crazy, if you calculate even if you spend $70 or 35 points for a year that's only $840 for a year for products that my family uses yearly, CHEAP, and this is not even part of “cost of doing business”, we came out way ahead.

And even if, I didn’t make money, just with the deduction I had on my schedule C, because I did signed up also to become an Independent Marketing Executive with them and it was worth it. Listen really hard for those don't have any deductions. Value of products was my main concern; addition income was a pleasant surprise". I'm sorry, I have not made my first Million Dollar yet on Melaleuca but I'm already a big big Winner when it comes to good health for my family and myself, that is KING to me!

I welcome any questions about Melaleuca, their products or even the research I have done, which are now a part of me and my family now as a Blessing'. Call me at 408-771-0296..

God Bless! .

I don’t understand how anyone can want to buy, let alone get involved, from a bunch of vampires. When you sign up as a preferred member, you must agree to buy a minimum purchase every month or they hit your credit card automatically with a product of their choice.

In my case, it was a case of vitamins for $65.64! I didn’t not order this, nor did I want it. That bit of fine print wasn’t explained to me when I joined up. I told them I no longer wanted to be a member, they told me I have to quit in writing.

Then I told them that I didn’t want the package, then they told me to send it back. When the package came, I denied it so it wasn’t opened. I received an email confirmation that they had received the package back, and that I can expect to receive a refund within 10 business days. That time came and went, with no refund.

So I called then, and they said I have to ask for a refund in writing. Seriously?!?!? The representative then said he can only issue a refund minus $18.00 shipping and handling charge. So yes, they want me to pay for a shipment charge for a product I didn’t want.

Now they and anyone else here, can say “tough, shoulda read the fine print” as much as you like. The fundamental problem I have with this…they hide behind the veil of “tsk, tsk, should have read the contract” knowing full well that most people don’t read it.

Real slick Melaleuca! Do yourselves a favor, change your underhanded business practices and fast.

I have been a customer for five years and been trying to cancel for months. I was told they would email a form and I was to fill it out, take a picture with my smart phone and email it back.

There was no firm, only a sign in to my account which supposedly will take me to a cancel link.

I can't sign in because I don't remember my password, guess what, there is no "forgot password" prompt so I'm stuck. Looks like another phone call and a waste of my time.

They weight the membership kit and orders, so if you try to cheat by leaving something out of your return box, you will not be able to do it. People who are talking nonsense about not being able to cancel their Melaleuca membership are either outright lying or a bit slow, all you do is fax a piece of paper with your name, phone# and signature saying "I cancel" Done and Done.

I have sent this fax myself, my account was instantly cancelled, I then came back the next month when I went to the store and realized I was now spending much more at the grocery for chemicals that did not work anywhere as well as my Melaleuca products, I went beck and have now been a loyal customer for 2 years.

As a single mom I appreciate the money I save and the health of my family and the environment. Some of the things I have read here from other people are out and out lies, I suspect they may in fact be written by MLM lurkers who are jealous of the fact that we do not operate as an MLM (Multi Level Marketing and our sales are a Billion dollars a year without hurting anyone or causing people to lose thousands of dollars on whatever magic juice or gadget they have schemed up this week.

Melaleuca in Leadville, Colorado - Melalueca---DONT JOIN!

I really enjoyed being a preffered customer until I didn't have the money to place a $70 order each month for the required 35 point system. The company sent the back-up order and since I was a member until August i accepted that for the two shipments made even though it put my credit card over limit. I thought, well my membership is over in August so they will stop sending me back-up orders. They DID NOT!!! They continued to send back-up orders for the month of September. And to make matters worse, they are requiring that I pay shipping and handling to ship the last order back that I DID NOT ORDER AND I WAS NOT A MEMBER!!!! I would recommend paying a higher price for the product and NOT JOINING!!
