Amway Product Reviews

A while back on one of the Quixtar Opportunity Zone blogs a commentator suggested that Quixtar should allow product reviews and ratings on the Quixtar site, as happens on many other e-commerce websites.

I thought at the time that this was a good idea, but more recently the idea has been given a boost. Checking the search statistics of this website and Amway Wiki I’ve noticed that there’s quite a lot of folk searching for information and reviews about Amway and Quixtar products.

So I figure – let’s give it to them! What do you think? I’ve already checked out what’s necessary to get it up and running and I think I could have it going in a week or two. There’s some software I’m going to need which costs a couple of hundred bucks, so if you feel inclined and can afford to support the project, I’d appreciate a click on the “Support This Site” item to the left. Other than that it’s just going to need the contribution of people to write up products and give their reviews and ratings. It will probably take a year or so to become a really good resource, but assuming my experience with Amway’s products is similar to everyone else’s, it should be a very positive addition to the internet mileau.

And of course, if there’s some crappy products being promoted, the corp will hopefully get to read about it from us folk on the ground!

Let me know what you think!

  1. This company is really a bluff company. This company just take away huge money from its customers.

    Its products are no at all good as they show and also really very very high priced.

    I am an IBO in this company since 7 months before this i joined this company in India in 2002 at that time also i gave my member ship back in 3 months after buying its high priced products and experienced that they are not at all good enough as they are presented.

    They talk to their IBO’s about active and passive income by joining this company and also manipulate its members to bring new customers but its all fake. They don’t give back that kind of money. After charging you a huge amount they just give you a very very little part of it. Their are many other good products in the market that are good and also not that expensive.

    I joined this company just because my wife insisted as she heard this for the first time, i tried to explain her how bad this company is but still she wanted to experience it so we got enrolled by spending $150.00 and we just got $89.00 worth of products. Than I purchased $400.00 products and got one of my friend enrolled in this and he paid $150.00 enrollment fee and than bought products for $270.00 and in return i just got $4.00. Any body can calculate what is the return this company is giving.

    Also they tell that product return is free but its not, they charge $5.50 as the invoice charge.

    In short its good to buy stuff from the store where you can see the product physically and pay less and buy it in spite of spending huge amount for this worthless products.

    When i joined i was also told that this company is in partner with T-mobile, Verizon, etc. so i will get $50.00 discount in my phone bills by presenting this id but when i tried to get enroll to the phone company for that discount they told me they dont give any kind of such discounts.

    In short please don’t spend your hardly early money for this company products. You have earned this money after working so hard. My annual income is just $2600.00 per month from which i pay $1200.00 as rent of my apartment and also many other bills like grocery, phone, furniture installment, etc.
    So i know how difficult it is when this money is taken away by such companies making us fool. And they are happy when you join the company and buy its products because they got 1 more fool like me who will be making them rich by getting ourselves poor for worthless products

  2. I am looking for product reviews. I just sat through a demonstration of many products. I see that the items are expensive, but are they any good? What should I buy first?

    1. Hi Matica, depends what you want! I find most of the cleaning products are excellent, and while they may cost more upfront, they’re usually cheaper per use, so not expensive. The Artistry range is “premium”, so not “cheap”, but is also generally cheaper than other brands in the same category. Nutrilite is in a class of it’s own, so price comparisons are difficult.

      My 5 favourite products, in no particular order –

      LOC Kitchen cleaner
      XS Energy drinks
      Body series roll-on deodorant
      Nutrilite Double X
      Artistry Youth Xtend system

      1. Thanks for getting back to me in a honest way. You were very helpful. I will take your advice and start with the cleaning products.

  3. I have used Amway products for over thirty years and as far as the company I think they are top notch. I use their SA8 laundry detergent, Tryzim, all fabric bleach, and prewash and my whites are brilliant. My husband never has yellowing under the arms of his t-shirts. Their hair spray holds without sticky residue, their deodorant is the very best I have ever tried. I use their shampoo and body wash. No residu after shower and then spray the shower cleaner so I don’t have to clean my shower as often. I used their Nutrilite until I found Advocare supplements that I liked better.

  4. My mother bought a set of Amway Queen pots and pans 45 years ago.A couple of the pots got warped recently(I think due to going from gas to electric cooking).Amway replaced the pots with no charge,no hassle.I couldn’t believe it.Standing behind a product like that is unbelievable.

    1. ray, how did you get your cookware covered/replaced? did they need original purchase or other documentation? I have a set with a couple warped pans, inherited them, and do not have paperwork. Pls let me know.

  5. I have been using Amway products and love almost everything I have used. There are slightly more expensive but that’s because you get better quality. A McDonald’s hamburger and a filet mignon both are beef but they don’t cost the same. This is a personal choice. Eat what you want to eat and use personal care products that you want to use. Amway products are biodegradable, organic and don’t contain fillers an additives. you need less because it’s concentrated. I say that with confidence because I can see the excellent job the cleaning products do. As a mother of 3 I can tell when it’s easier to clean off burnt milk from a pan or clean dirt laden football pants using just a small scoop of Amway cleaners compared to leading brands that use bulking agents so you use a big scoop full of junk leaving residue on your clothes to attract more dirt and bacteria. Similarly when I take my double X compared to leading brands that gave me such terrible stomach aches that I couldn’t even stand up every night. Once I stopped and started taking Nutrilite I finally could enjoy my family.

    Everyone has something negative to say but your own personal experience is what is the TRUTH. I was skeptical at first but I LOVE my amways products and can NOT get myself to go back to the junk they sell in the stores.

  6. Amway is a brainwashing company selling all the products at the cost of poor. Their policy is use first them share….By the time u use the products the company would be end up with huge revenue especially the market like India.
    I feel pl think 100 times before entering into this business or buying this product.

    1. It’s not Amway’s “policy” to use first, then share – it’s common sense! You obviously aren’t going to have much success marketing products to people if you don’t think they’re worth using them yourself, are you? And gues what – if you don’t like them or don’t think they’re good value, then you can return them for a full refund.

      Furthermore, Amway’s revenue statistics are quite clear – only a very small percentage of sales are to new people, so your thesis they get “huge revenue” from this simply isn’t true. Do the math yourself!

    2. Amway makes the products and people like me sell them. I use them because I like their quality. Quality is NEVER expensive.

    3. @B A Rout
      If it is so, then every company is a brainwasher & as well as a pocket washer too, coz they not only cost higher, but also using them do not earn you steady discount (approx 20%) & no other company will allow you to do business with their products without any investment. One needs only Rs 2.00 to join amway Business (Rs 2 for xerox copy of your photo id & address proof!!!!!!). Again, if higher cost is a factor then the answer is yes they are high priced in purchaase only but daily basis expense is so pathetically low, that non users cannot believ untill they use. e.g. a pack of 1 kg Surf Excell is around Rs 190.00 and in our household it only lasts for a month. In case of SA8, it costs Rs 750.00 (MRP), bought 5 months back & as per our calculation it will last more than a month now. thus our permonth expenditure is around Rs 125.00. Which is lower?????

  7. I have found amways products to be suburb in many aspects. They not only meet indutry in cost and effectiveness of their products, but exceeds them. They do this through their Nutrilite for example. Nutrilite products most of the time has three times the vitimins and minerals found in competing products. For example theri cold medicine i have found has three times the amound of the main compoinants for the drug to work on teh immune system then dyquil and other compeating products.

    1. Last night I compared my one son’s Nutralite chewable multi vitamin with another brand I bought at a health shop. The other brand had 2-3 times more nutrients than nutralite plus a cost far less.

      1. Could you give us an example? I’ve been unable to find competitor products that even contain the same nutrients as Nutrilite (phytonutrients in particular) let alone more of them. More is not always better by the way, especially with children. Did your competitor product include organic plant extracts? If not, then it’s not even remotely the same product.

  8. I personally find Amway products, in my own experience, to be sub-standard compared to other products. I would not waste my money on them again and I have friends who have also tried their Nutrilite range and found it extremely lacking.

    Thank goodness that at least now we have the internet to be able to share this information.

      1. I agree with IBOFIGHTBACK. How can #1 selling vitamins in the world company sell sub standard products?? That leave me a big question about this paradox?!

        1. Where do you see that they’re #1 selling? I’m googling it right now and can’t find Nutralite topping the list in any category. I’d like to know what to search for, other than the brand name.

      2. Keep up the good work…Amway products and health sups are top notch,with whole foods grown from seed to consumer,certified organic and good quality products…most people pay far more for less. fightback for good! fightback for life!

    1. I can’t understand HOW exactly anybody could waste money on Amway products. Have you ever heard about 100% satisfaction guarantee?
      Why do you waste your time on the Internet to “share” the information when everybody can try the product and if they don’t like it, they can return it for a full refund? I can’t understand why do you think they need YOU to tell THEM what you think. Who cares?

    2. I am using Amway products,as costumers an finally (recently)as member to enjoy the discounts.You will be of great help if you can specify which product you found substandard.
      Thank you

  9. I have used Amway products earlier, they are good, a bit expensive but worth the price..I haven’t tried any of the Amway Nutrilite products. I just wanna know if they have positive reviews before I could try any…

    Thanks, 🙂

    1. There’s a lot of products! Great thing about Amway is you can do your own review and get your money back if you don’t think they were worth it. 🙂

      1. Hello,

        … doing “…my own review” translates to experimenting with my own health, without knowing the adverse effects… It would be helpful to know some, specific information w.r.t product, like, known drug interactions, known adverse effects, product usage recommendations and such details for the literate user atleast.

        Thanks and regards,

        1. Hi,
          Nutrilite is usually happy to answer those kind of questions. There’s a lot of info supplied by Amway on their websites and in their manuals also. Varies a bit between markets though.

        1. I’m a registered Amway Independent Business Owner (IBO) fighting back against the myths, BS, and occasional outright lies you read about Amway on the internet – IBO Fightback. Why do you ask?

          1. What are the most common myths about Amway? I’ve heard them compared to a pyramid and some people call their meetings cult like.

  10. Amway Reprentative during Show the Plan and Show the product, they campared Chemical product(Surf Excel, Rin, Areal never claim for Herbal product) with Herbal product of Amway SA8.

    It is very basic that comparision should be in same Grade or Cader or same species.
    i.e the purpose is only how a new ABO can join….

      1. This is what happens in direct selling. When I told my need for a product to my upline, who was my friend (Now business man), he thinks from PV/BV point of view rather than putting effort to understand the need and suggest right product. Very unfriendly. Sometime’s I felt that Amway should not have come in between us, so that he would have put a little effort in suggesting a good product without any bias.
        Very few sellers know about their products and can give good suggestion. In such a case Amway’s Product Range is too narrow.

        1. GGK, a couple of years ago I was looking for a new company car. The salesman was atrocious, but through our own work we decided the vehicle and lease agreement was what we were looking for, so we bought anyway.

          My point is that there’s poor salesmen (and women) in all industries, Amway’s no different.

          1. hahaha ibofightback is definitely an away guy… or something like that. he’s all over this thing trying to support them, sketchy.

      2. I have recently joined and ditched Amway. I hear a lot IBO’s telling people that the products do not contain any chemicals. This is a blatant lie. They contain petrochemicals and other controversial chemicals.

        1. If you encountered some IBOs who were saying things blatantly contrary to what Amway says – why wouldn’t you ditch them instead of Amway? It’s ridiculous to say Amway products do not contain chemicals. Water is a chemical.

    1. SA 8 is not a herbal product but a bio degradable pruduct which is different than herbal. Herbal ia a term that is used for vitamins rather than detergent such as SA 8.
      I see that you have a great interest towards Amway product. GOOD. Analyse further and you will find that amway products are really quality products.

  11. As per your representative it is described that if you are member(ABO) then u will get 20% discount directally in all product. and other associated benifits as per plan.
    But actually we get approximately 14% discount after including the Tax. means customer must add total money spent by him, instead of Amway internal price without tax.

    It is just like that some Flight tourist agency shows that Ticket charges is just Rs.500.00, but when customer goes to buy the ticket he paid Rs.4000–Rs.5000 and agent justified that Rs. 500.00 was without tax.
    So i request to you that please try to do transparent buissiness not by making foolish to new ABO

    1. Heera, The actual discount varies from product to product, but it is applied to the tax-free value, not after tax. This is the normal practice in all businesses, and ABOs who purchase products are, by default, treated by Amway as business owners.

    2. One thing you need to understand that normally Amway apply the the distributor profit say 20% from the distributor price not from the selling price. So if you calculate the different from the selling price and the distributor price you will not get 20%. Try to calculate again and you will find out what I mean. Don’t judge too early. Amway is a big and reputable company. They will not DO things that are unethical and definitely not cheating.

  12. The products are too good for using and it was not more costly agins your helth.

    1. I used amway products with lots of doubts and for trial…after use t I just love it and only for the products I started the business and just between 1yr I can see the money as well as health..Amway is the only business where we dont have any risk….you can withdraw ur small small small investment when u want…then why not friends….just try once….believe ur own experience not the others….Now I am a successful business woman…..I m also working nd I am an MBA. my working organisation all my collegues r also amway user nd many of them are my business partners.
