I have been a customer since 2008. At first I was skeptical about the 35 point commitment but after the first 6 months, I found that it was very easy to maintain if you switch stores.
I found that by slowly switching stores, I saved money in the long run. Last year, I decided to test out how much I save with Melaleuca by comparing my friend's Walmart receipts with mine on comparable products. On average, her receipts would ring up $132, with their highest in August '14 which was $167 (not counting Black Friday). My biggest two months were March and September with the combined bill of $158.
Not only that, I compared school shopping lists and my friend spent almost $70 more than I did with similar lists, except I bought shoes too. I bought online through Melaleuca.com Marketplace and received about $3 in a rebate from Kohl's and $1.50 back from Walmart.com.
Her excuse for not being a Melaleuca customer is the 35 point commitment even though she is buying $130 of stuff every month anyway. And I don't argue, her prerogative.
Reason of review: Fair pricing.
