Buy Nothing From Amway And Be Heard

I saw an interview with a man who’s written a book about consumers and how we can make corporations behave. He uses his blog to get the word out there about different companies. Mostly this has to do with companies that offer shitty products and even shittier customer service when consumers have a complaint.

I thought he was talking about Amway!

But no, the examples he uses are other companies.

He got mad at his lawn mower and blogged about it. Then someone from John Deere head office stops by his blog to read it to see if there was a problem and if this blog could be dangerous to any potential buyers. He never heard from John Deere so the employee must have decided someone blogging about being mad at their lawnmower isn’t a threat.

That’s exactly the same way it is with Amway’s head office! Except I’m betting there are a lot more people out there who are pissed off at Amway than they are at John Deere!

First off you got to wonder why Amway employees are fucking around surfing the Internet during business hours instead of actually getting work done. What about the Amway employee using the Blackberry in the evening to read this blog. You’d think company issued phones are to be only used for company related business not the employee’s entertainment pursuits.

But really who am I going to complain to? I’m not the fucking Amway police. I’ve already learned that Amway head office doesn’t give a shit when IBO’s complain about the lies from their upline, so why would they give a shit if their employees are surfing the Internet during working hours instead of actually (gasp!) working. Apathy City. The I-don’t-give-a-shit winners in the customer service department!

There are lots of bloggers who get the word out about Amway one way or another. Some focus on why the Amway business is a bad opportunity. Other bloggers keep their readers up to date with things going on in the news that are negatively affecting Amway. Some bloggers focus on Amway lies and report about that. Other bloggers talk about the Amway cult and brainwashing. Others get the word out there about the tool scam. Most bloggers cross all lines and anything Amway is fair game.

This blog exists because I like cursing out my former upline and to tell about the brainwashing used on my Ambot so others can be warned about what is ahead should they choose to proceed. Sometimes I talk about what Amway’s business opportunity but I’m happiest cursing out the upline assholes and revealing what went on at Amway meetings and functions, and of course cursing out the stray ambot that shows up here spouting off their bullshit Amspeak.

Former IBO’s blog about their Amway experiences and other former IBO’s leave comments about their similar experiences which means there’s a lot of information about Amway on the Internet: the cult, brainwashing, inferior products at premium prices, IBO abuse, shitty customer service from head office, the amount of money Amway IBO’s really earn each month, the amount of money that IBO’s lose each month, Diamonds lying about buying everything for cash, Diamonds selling houses or having their homes foreclosed, Diamonds declaring bankruptcy. When it comes right down to it just about everything associated with Amway is a lie. But mostly those lies are generated by the IBO's, not necessarily by Amway's head office who refuse to take responsibility for the IBO's actions and turn the other cheek and pretend its not happening.

Amway does not consider bloggers to be a threat to their bottom line. Talk about arrogance!

The author being interviewed finished with one piece of advice: “Buy less and be heard!”

That same piece of advice could be targeted to any corporation that offers inferior products and inferior customer service but its a perfect weapon against Amway.

People blogging about Amway get thousands of visitors each month so we are being heard. Amway’s sales have dropped by billions over the past few years.

I don’t buy nothing from Amway and its a safe bet that most of this blogs readers don’t either so we’re winning on the “buy less” front too except in our case its “don’t buy at all”.

Buy less and be heard!

Don’t buy nothing and be heard even louder!

We celebrate Amway’s sales dropping every year over the past few years by about one third. Buy less and be heard!

Fuck Amway!


  1. Amway in Ada, Michigan doesn't really care about anti-Amway blogs because they are getting the bulk of their money from the various LOS subsystems. As long as the products are moving down-line, Amway will just continue to produce them and collect from WWDB, BWW, Network 21, and all the other little racketeers. And the subsystems need the products, because nobody gets any sort of rebate or bonus without some kind of transfer of Amway products to somebody else. Amway products are the poker chips in this big rigged game.

    The people who really hate the anti-Amway blogs are those creeps who run the LOS subsystems, since a failure to maintain recruitment of new IBOs cuts deeply into their profits, and prevents them from maintaining strong down-lines. These anti-Amway blogs hit hard at the life of the system, since we discourage people from joining the Amway racket, and we give people the intellectual ammunition they need to counteract Amway propaganda. In addition, the multiple horror stories told here by persons who have been ruined by Amway are an effective testimonial against the whole damned racket.

    The slow-motion collapse of Amway in North America is due directly to blogs like this. What we need now are blogs in Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and the languages of India to reach the people out there, and warn them about the financial sinkhole that Amway is.

    1. Hi Anonymous. Seeing as how over 95% of Amway's products are sold to losers who signed up to be IBO's and as long as Amway's head office is satisfied that the various cult sects are pushing the products to be sold yes I can see why the arrogant pricks who run the head office don't care about people sharing their stories online.

      And yes the various cult sects like WWDB and BWW need Amway because that's the grey line between being a pyramid scheme and being an illegal pyramid scheme. They have actual products for sale. Shitty overpriced products that real customers don't want but as long as they can convince the cult followers to purchase then that's the grey line between recruiting people into their legal pyramid scheme.

      Yeah it'd be nice to see bloggers in other language getting the word out about how joining Amway only brings financial and emotional distress and I'm sure there are some. English speaking bloggers are getting a good job done in that department.

  2. I love your blog! You know, if you have to pay to work someone, that doesn't make you an employee, it makes you a customer. I am very sorry you had a bad experience, and I love how you're trying to spread the word :)

    1. Hi Unknown. Glad you're loving the blog! And yup we do our best to spread the word about the financial and emotional distress that comes along if you sign up to the Amway cult.


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.
