I am posting an anonymous commenter's comment as a separate post.
"On May 20, my credit card was automatically charged for the next quarter (until Aug 20)for $50+ for the Bww TV and Webspace package .It was around this time when I decided to not do the business anymore. So, I missed cancelling that service and was charged. Anyway, that is fine and usual business practice. However, next thing I noticed is that immediately my Website and BWW TV service stopped working even though I had paid until Aug 20!! I contacted Bww and they said that the service cancels immediately upon cancellation! Now that is not how businesses operate, the so called "traditional" businesses that BWW puts down so much would either give me a partial refund or at least continue my service until the date I have paid for it!! I don't know where I can report a business practice like this."
One more testimony that any money that goes to upline/system is like a one way channel. Any chance of getting a refund is slim to none unless you are persistent and consistent:)
By the way, most of the videos posted on BWWTV are filmed at functions. You pay for the functions, then pay for cds to listen to these talks and then again YOU HAVE TO PAY TO WATCH THESE TALKS AGAIN. Upline and system is interested in only one thing and that is their profit.
By the way here are Amway's rules regaring tool returns:
220.127.116.11. During the first 90 days following an IBO's registration, the IBO may return all BSM of any form purchased, including meeting tickets, together with proof of purchase, for a 100% refund of the price paid for such BSM.
18.104.22.168. Except as provided in Rule 22.214.171.124., an IBO end-user of BSM may return BSM purchased, together with proof of purchase, within 180 days following purchase, for a refund on commercially reasonable terms.
If I remember correctly, there used to be rule that an IBO can get off BSMs any time they want to. Dont know what happened to that. Remember, Amway keeps tweaking their rules. They will tweak and tweak till everything is in the big pins favor.
If in case, any of you IBOs decide to get off standing order and your upline says things like, it takes a couple of weeks to get you off standing order or any other excuse, do know that they are just giving you a bunch of BS. These same guys will put an IBO on standing order as soon as the IBO is willing to get on it. Why didnt it take them 2 weeks to put them on standing order?
Do share your comments if any of have had tough time getting a refund for tools from your upline.
