On a few sites around the 'net you'll find "price comparisons" that pretend to show that Amway products are over-priced. Are they? If price is all you are interested in, then a price comparison may indeed show Amway products as being more expensive than some competitor products. But price and value are not the same thing.
Here's what Amway has to say about value on their website -
Value for Money
New customers are occasionally
surprised at the prices of AMWAY™ products. Some people expect products
offered by direct sale to be low-priced, inferior copies of the goods
they can buy in stores. Amway has never built its business on that
concept. From its beginnings in the late 195s, Amway's focus has been
on quality products that deliver exceptional performance at competitive
This commitment to quality is reflected in the intensive
research and development that goes into AMWAY products. What other
company can boast:
- A development and manufacturing facility more than a mile (1.6km) long.
- Organic farms in two hemispheres.
- Research partnerships with leading international universities.
- Facilities to replicate the water quality in countries around the world.
- A list of patents related to products for everything from water treatment to hair repair.
this huge investment in product development, AMWAY products, in
general, are price-competitive and good value for the money. Research
shows that some products are less expensive than their counterparts,
others are more expensive, and most are competitively priced.
- Products that are more expensive usually have greater features and benefits over competitive products.
products, such as L.O.C.™ Multi-Purpose Cleaner, are highly
concentrated, meaning a single purchase lasts longer. On a cost-per-use
basis, these products are priced very competitively.
- Product is delivered directly to the consumer and backed by a Satisfaction Guarantee
This is pretty much what I have found when I've compared Amway products with other products in the same range. They often cost more upfront, but their per-use cost is usually way way cheaper. When I take in to account other issues that are important to me, like environmental friendliness and no animal testing, then Amway products represent even better value for money for me.
Now, only you can make the decision for yourself whether the quality and price of Amway products represents value for you. I recommend you sit down, look at the usage instructions of Amway products, and then go to your local store and get the pricing of similar products, and then compare. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
