One of the selling points I remember seeing in the Amway presentation was how you can save money. In fact, the speaker always said you save 30% by purchasing Amway products. Therefore by simply purchasing through Amway, you would instantly put $67 in your pocket.
$67 = $7 rebate and $60 = 30% savings on 100 PV.
This was an outright lie. You do not save 30%. It is a myth. I suppose if you are comparing IBO price and full suggested retail, it may be 30%, but it is not a savings of 30% buying the same or similar products elsewhere. I posted a price comparison of some same and/or comparable products some months back and you can get much better prices shopping at Costco or Walmart. IBOFightback, Amway's (unofficial) PR champion (And Zealot), wrote a post about how you don't save money shopping though Amway, therefore it's value is questionable.
So unless you actually check out the prices, be wary and don't simply take the word of someone presenting the plan. Check and verify for yourself.
