Is Amway Really One of the Top Internet Retailers?
I was reading an article about Amazon being the top retailer of Internet sales coming in around $30 billion last year. The article also said Amazon had 3 times as much in Internet sales as its next competitor.
Seeing as how I get ambots showing up at my blog to call me a negative unchristian dream stealer quitting loser and bragging about how awesome Amway is and had $10 billion in sales last year I thought it might be possible Amway was in the number 2 spot.
Ha! I should know by now to discount everything an ambot says as a lie!
That article meant its time for a Google search for the top Internet retailers and I found the top 500 here:
The number 2 spot with about $10 billion in sales is - wait for it - TA DA! - Staples!
Wait how can that be? All those Ambots showing up on my blog bragging about Amway is $10 billion in sales last year.
Well maybe they’re off a bit in the list. Surely Amway with their $10 billion in sales has to be close to Staples number 2 spot.
Number 3 - Apple with $5 billion.
Oh oh. Now there’s a huge drop. Double. What the hell happened to Amway and all those ambots bragging about the $10 billion? Surely they weren’t lying were they?
Hmm. Amway. Ambots. Liars.
Yup its all making sense.
OK forget the drum roll. I’ll just keep scrolling down until I find Amway.
And down and down and down and down.....
They’re number 28. On a list of 500? I would think the ambots would be basking in glory about that and bragging about it to everyone. So how much does #28 make in sales? $912 million.
Uh, what happened to 10 billion? This seems to fall about 9 billion short.
Amway. Ambots. Liars.
Who’s #500? Magnet Street with $11 million.
I tried a few other searches such as the world’s top Internet sales. On those lists that are usually about 100 strong Walmart is number one and Amazon drops way down. Amway or any of its incarnations (Alticor, Quixtar) is nowhere to be found. You’d think if what those IBO’s are always bragging about 10 billion I’d find the company sitting in with other companies of comparative sales.
Hmm. Amway. Ambots. Liars.
I did find Amway on a list a few years old. It was number 6 or 8 but didn’t say how much in sales.
I get it. Ambots parrot what their cult leaders say. They “duplicate” those lies. A cult leader spreads the word that Amway made $10 billion in sales last year and the gullible cult followers believe it and repeat it and brag about it.
Obviously Amway is making a lot of money scamming IBO’s with overpriced products but the total tally seems to be unknown other than the $912 million.
Its possible that Amway the corporation is worth 10 billion in its various assets. After all they’ve had 50 years to sock away the profits they make ripping people off but that amount doesn’t mean its their annual sales numbers.
Unless of course you’re a scamming lying Amway IBO trying to impress others with made up figures.
