There’s been a bit of discussion recently on various Amway-related websites about an energy drink called All in Energy, apparently marketed primarily through poker tourneys. All in Energy, much like XS Energy (marketed by Amway and Quixtar) comes in multiple flavours, is sugar free, and has large doses of B-vitamins and various energy-boosting herbs.
The Internet War Against Amway is not a traditional war with General’s directing units to attack our weaknesses (at least I don’t think so!). The war is more like the kind of “war” some religious or political fundamentalists wage.

It’s been my opinion that a major component of Amway’s struggles for growth, particularly in english speaking markets, has been the Internet and Amway’s misguided decision some years ago to effectively leave Internet discussion about Amway to the critics (read Amway and the Internet – A History Part I).

For a few months now I’ve been working on a new website – Amway Watch. Amway Watch is solely dedicated to reporting news on the Amway business from around the world, using official sources such as newspapers, Amway press releases, court documents and such.
This site, The Truth About Amway, will continue to break news on controversial and other topics that are generally not of interest for most people and not “in the mainstream”. The Blog area will also continue to provide my thoughts and analysis on various topics about the Amway Business. I won’t however be updating the front page on general “news” as much as I might have in the past – the focus for that will be Amway Watch. Continue reading Announcing Amway Watch→
In essence the Courts declared that because the contract could be unilaterally changed by Quixtar, then they are not valid contracts. One immediate result is that Quixtar is unable to enfoce arbitration in the Simmons et al vs Quixtar Inc case.
I’m not sure of the source or purpose of the following video, but it’s the first I’ve seen promoting the new Amway Global/Quixtar branding. It plays like a TV advertisement, but at a little over 2 mins seems longer than the average ad these days. Continue reading New Amway Global/Quixtar Video→
