A Reader Gets A “Gift”

Thanks to a reader who shares a story about a birthday “gift” they received.

My son's friend, who unfortunately is caught up in the Amway scam, came to my son's birthday party at our house the other night. He stayed until after everyone else had gone and his dad arrived and was chatting with us. Then I watched the kid come into the room holding a box in his hand and stood there as his dad smiled and said "Chris has something he wants to say". I felt the blood running out of my face as I thought "Oh God, no! Is this going to be a fucking Amway pitch?" Sure enough, he pulls out a box of Nutrilite Cranberry Crunch bars and some other Amway snack and told about how good and healthy they are and that he wanted to give them as his gift. My son thanked him and, luckily, the pitch ended there with that being his "present". I'm not sure if there was the hope that we'd become "addicted" to them and start ordering more, but no way in hell that is going to happen. I did a google search and found that other Ambots were selling them online for as much as $16 dollars a box!!!! 12 bars. And they are TINY!! Each bar is like 3 inches long.

Again, I don't know if the intent was to try to get us as a "customer", or simply because since Amway is purely self-consumerism, he uses Amway as gifts to get his "sales" totals up and get a pat on the head from his upline.

Just thought I'd share that. Amway is such a sad thing to see happen to a person. I don't know what hope this kid has since his college roommate is the one who got him into it, so he gets daily brainwashing. I know that his dad allowed him to have one of their stupid circle meetings at his house which got another kid hooked into the Amway scheme, and the dad of THAT kid still hasn't forgiven the dad of my son's friend for helping his son get sucked into the cult.


  1. There's another possible explanation. The kid might just want to get rid of Amway junk that is piling up in his parents' house.

    By the way, I understand that it forbidden (by Amway) for anyone to sell Amway products on ebay or amazon or any other on-line market. There was a thread about this just last week at Joe Cool's blog.

    Amway really doesn't want its products sold to the general public in the normal, free-enterprise fashion. This threatens them. Amway wants the products to be largely used for self-consumption by IBOs and their families.

    1. Anonymous - the more possible explanation are the parents want to get rid of the Amway shit their kid has been bringing into their house! LOL!

      Amway has a very restrictive contract that their commission sales reps sign. If the "independent business owner" violates convictions of the contract they can get fired. Yup where else but Scamway can you get fired from "your own business". Bottom line if Amway actually enforced their contract they'd have no sales reps left because Ambots continuously violate the terms. Particularly the one where IBO's aren't allowed to make reference to any imaginary endorsement by the BBB. Heard Ambots at every Amway meeting violating that condition not to mention the numerous ambots who show up here bragging that the BBB and Amway are in bed together.

      Amway has some kind of non-compete clause in their restrictive contract so Ambots can't sell their shit online because Amway retains the rights to sell their overpriced shitty products online. It's my guess that the people flogging Amway shit on eBay, Amazon and Craigslist have left the cult and trying to unload the inventory they were forced to stockpile. They didn't give a shit about violating the terms of Amway's contract when they were IBO's so they don't care about violating it when they're out.


Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
