Melaleuca - Preferred customers who can't afford the 35pts monthly order.

We love this product but want to stay as a preferred customer, as not interested in building a business but joined to support our daughter in building her Melaleuca business .We are both on a disability pension and finding it hard to find $100 dollars a month on an order.

As there is only 2 of us our products last a while.if we were able to order on as needed basis, which maybe a smaller order each month, it would suit our budget better.

Don't want to stop buying this product .Is there anyone else in the same position.

I could just shop at a local natural market and not be obligated every month or pay shipping for the same quality products.

Ya, I agree the prices and points system is kidda unsettling. I don't think that you really need all that much. It last awhile and the variety isn't fit for that kind of demand.

I've been in Melaleuca 2 times. I like the products but am on Social Security/Disability also and can't afford to commit to over $60 a month...especially when you can't use the products up in a month when living by yourself.
I stopped being a preferred customer a few months ago...I was only signed up for 3-5 months or so. There was no contact from my upline once I signed up nor from corporate after I quit except corporate did say they were sorry I was resigning.

If you really think about it!
You are really not spend any new money.
Instead of buying your products for a brink and mortar store for example: Walmart, Wall-greens, or CVS your are buying the same products online store. This alone will save you gas.
What you are doing is buying better quality of products and that is 4x to 6x concentrated which in the long run will save you a lot of money.

I have no problem with preferred customer who can order 35 points. Use your wise how to pay cheap products with 35 points. I'm always pay between $60-80. Nothing wrong with my budget because I have good wise how to save it. :)

Surprisingly I hear about some who find it a challenge reaching the 35 point threshold. Although I personally know they must still be shopping at local stores for more expensive versions of the products Melaleuca has to offer, the fact is that it is NOT a requirement to spend 35 points every single month. This is one of the most misunderstood things about the membership.
If a person does not mind forfeiting all the Preferred Customer benefits like discounts at over 600 Online retailers, 15% Loyalty Shopping dollars on every order, and more, it is very easy to adjust the membership. I help people do this all the time.
If anybody has not shopped for at least 6 months, I highly recommend they contact me and I can help customize a membership to fit their needs.

I have enjoyed the products I've used so far and finally 3rd month of ordering have it down a little better not to spend as much. It's only 2 people in my household and mainly just 1 using the items. I will not need to order every month. I will suspend and will see, was promised they will not ship automatic, if I suspend and then if/when I order again I can change it back. I would not order direct, no matter how much I like the items, due to such high price. I did not spend as much regular shopping and now find I'm really spending more. I also feel though as their company motto help those save money and learn financial freedom incredible that they would do auto ships causing ppl to spend money when they don't want to. I would not want to work for them because I don't believe their ethics match their words. Sorry Mel. on a scale of 1-10 you only rate a 5 and that's for your products only. Which if you want to pay the high price you can also order thru Amazon.

W have been with Melaleuca since 1994 approx. and had been preferred customers until a few years ago. We went to direct customer.
Today I made an order and didn't mind the direct customer prices. When the order was done online and processed they gave me a PREFERRED CUSTOMER price I'm the total. I hope they don't put us back in as preferred customers as I do not order every month.
Have they changed the way to order or are we getting the preferred pricing because we have been members for so long?

Let's begin with an apology to all who have tried Melaleuca seeking a better income or health solution and found only negative results.
The objective here is not to harm anyone or steal away from you but rather to show you how we may help you with your financial security or health concerns. Advocates and Directors are your source of information and should answer every question you have asked as well as cover any vital information you may need to take note of.
as a member of melaleuca you have two options... you may use the product strictly as a customer or you may supplement your income by building a business out of it while using the products as a customer. The back up orders are not meant to be used ever! they are what I call "Insurance" which is set in place as a pre-order in case you haven't made an order already and the purpose is to preserve your membership.
now back to the beginning.
our directors invite you to share our business concept with you so that we may decide with you if this is a good fit for your needs. if you see what we see and are open to discussion then we will help you enroll to create your shopping account. we will introduce you to our business partners and support team so as to familiarize you with the people who will help you learn more about the business and show you how to help others. be aware that this is not for everyone and our job is not to pressure anything on you. you may decide what you will in the end

Take away the 35 point monthly minimum and you would probably get everybody to stay.
