Why I left Melaleuca
In February 2014 I joined Melaleuca. I was so excited because of how dangerous household chemicals are. I paid my $30 YEARLY memberhsip free and then was part of the plan where you spend 35 points each month. If you don't you will receive a backup order. Well that was no problem for me. I made a small order with the minimum points. I fell in love with the products and I admit that I still love the products. Some work great, some suck to be honest - just with anything it has the good and the bad. Well Spending $52+ every month PLUS the tax PLUS the shipping fees. Minimum you were spending $72/month!
I'm a stay at home mom and my husband is the provider. We have to watch our spending and having to worry about making a purchase and such every month is just too much. It's a great opportunity to make money - IF you know a lot of people and can build. I tried. I don't get out much and I'm not the one to approach strangers. So I did some research so I could still get my natural products for my family, BUT without these minimum purchases and such.
My Alternative Choice - NO FEE, FREE TO JOIN
l found a site called Frontier Coop. I joined as a wholesaler and ONLY I had to pay a fee because of being a wholesale account. Anyone who signs up under my account gets access to the wholesale costs and does NOT have to pay a fee. Never. They carry brands such as Seventh Generation, Eco-Nuts, Earth Friendly, and plenty more. You sign up - it's FREE. You are NOT obligated to shop, let alone make a minimum purchase. The difference is under my account is saving 40-50% off regular retail prices. If you want to only buy one thing you can. If your order is $250 or more it's FREE shipping. They ship Fedex Ground so if it's under the $250 you pay standard FedEx fees.
As I said, this is FREE for you to look at. No minimum order. No monthly ordering. Simply regular shopping at WHOLESALE prices!
I still love Frontier Coop, however, since adding people, I discovered adding people tends to be a 'pain in the butt process' - as in I end up needing to send the invite twice since it doesn't always go through then each user is able to see other users mailing information and I need to approve your order being allowed to ship. I definitely don't mind doing this if you don't. However, if you do mind this process I recommend Piping Rock or Lucky Vitamin! No need for me to add you to those, just click the links and shop!
