Team National Reviews
Legit or Scam?
is a company that uses the power of volume
purchasing to contract discounts from a
variety of retailers. By joining the
company you have the chance to take
advantage of these savings and are also
encouraged to market the same benefits
package to others.
The opportunity from Team National is a
Benefit and Service Guide called "Your Road
to Savings." It's a package that
offers discounts on a plethora of products
and services. This package sells
for between $400 - $2,000 depending on
whether you opt for the two year or lifetime
Team National encourages you to resell
this package to your friends and family who
will in turn do the same, creating your down
line. The reason that the company has
some negative comments about it is that
whenever the recruitment aspect of an multi level marketing is
more beneficial than the product/service then
red flags are automatically raised.
I'm not saying it is or it isn't in this particular case but I know that many people feel that any MLM organization is inherently deceptive with regard to it's recruiting practices. It's up to you to decide if you feel like MLM is the type of business model you want to work with.
If you've been approached by a Team
National representative and are
interested in joining the company I would
recommend a few things. Since two thousand dollars is a
lot of money to pay for anything, sit down
and make a list of what discounts you will
realistically want to take advantage of.
Then cross reference it with prices/packages
that you can find online or through less
expensive discount programs. If you believe that you'll save more buying products from Team National than it costs for the membership then this may be a good deal for you.
The people selling Team National as a
business opportunity use savings on a vehicle purchase as
one of their main selling points. This is where you have to be very thorough because with such a big purchase you want to make sure you're really getting the savings that you expect.

Jack from West Virgina....You claimed to have "looked in on" Team National several times and then refer to it as a "MLM"??? Then keep looking buddy. Do you know what MLM stands for? IF so then you apparently don't understand or haven't been showed the compensation plan....

Its funny to read the comments who are completely clueless. These "so called" members that regret joining because theyre not saving money don't sound like members to me. Mainly because they only complained about saving money at places they already shop. Team National point blank tells you that the Marketplace IS NOT PART OF TEAM NATIONAL. The REAL savings comes from the TN Factory Direct and your LOCAL BUSINESSES. There is a TON of money to be saved. Wow......

I am a team national member and take every opportunity to tell people the truth. The savings are minimal and with the big furniture items the is shipping and the same items can be found at other warehouses with free shipping= no savings there and it will cost you more from team national. The bign market place is where you use your web site to purchase from wal-mart and the other stores for a percentage of savings. They dont tell you that the check you get back is a commissions check and taxable income. Also you have 3 days after signing up to get out, yet your web site will not be up for at least 7 days, which means the 3 days are gone and so is your membership money. If it was such a up standing buisness they would let you at least get your website up before losing your membership money. The company is very shady and boarderline dishonest. Do not believe the videos they show you of the money they have made from only telling a few friends and family...bs all the way. Get ready for making an endless call list and staying on the phone begging people to join. Get ready to be told if your friends and family don't get, they are just stupid and you don't need them anyway. You should only be around people that are positive (in other words only Team National Members). This is a very deceptive company that using an unique idea and some smoke and mirrors to get people in and hope that you will get hooked on getting other people in before you realize that there is no real savings. Motto should be, you can save a little and make a lot if you have no morals!! And yes I can talk because I am a member so I am talking from experience. I can go on about success clubs and people trying to get you to pay 200-300 dollars for tickets to go to a Team National Convention, so I am sorry but being a member should these tickets not be free???? and no this does not include hotel, they tell you that you will not succeed in this business unless you and your team make the confrences...yea right...they are making a killing on these conference's ...JS

For all you Die Hard Team National People Dont forget that all that big savings in your bign market comes to you in commisions checks and therefore taxable income bet you werent told that one either. Way to go could have paid 10% sales tax and got it at home but ordered it on line saved 5% and paid 30% tax on the 5% you earned, now that is sharp buisness mind there!! NOT!! This is why no one in the buisness can tell you about the savings is they are not using them and only interested in making sales of memberships. It is shady and boarderline deceptive practices. Stays just legal enough to keep going. Dont forget if you decide to join you have 3 days to decide if it works for you but o yea by the way your web site will not be up for 10 days and now you are stuck! Sounds like a confident business to me, so scared you will get out when you realize what is going on that they make it impossible to do so...just be ware. You can succeed in this business by 3 rules. 1) go ahead and tell your friends and family to take a hike, you only have team national friends now. 2)Spend endless hours making call lists and calling people 3)live and breath team national 7 days a week.

I am a team national member and have made several attempts to save money but with very minimal success, most of the purchases were costing more to use the site. When i asked my fellow Team National Members about how to better use the savings they were like "you are not going to get rich unless you get going" So if you are ok with telling people you can possible save some money but you can make lots of money if you are willing to forget your sense of value for a dollar. Dont believe the testimonies, you will not get anywhere just telling a few friends and family members, get ready for endless hours of making call lists and sacrificing your dignity to get anyone and everyone you can to join...I would take my 2000 dollars back in a heart beat and spend it one something worth my time..but that is just me...

Here is my take... I have family members doing this and they LOVE it! They say they are doing great with the checks rolling in and that they are saving loads. However, my husband and I said no and aren't upset about it. I checked the website- which by the way, they don't show you how to use and find savings during the pitch, and found that the rebates really depend on the merchant and the products you buy. I am sorry, but the everyday product brands I buy, either weren't available, cheaper at the store, or the 1-2 percent back just wasn't going to save me enough to be worth the membership and the It boils down to this... if you are the type of person to pressure sell your family, friends, neighbors, anyone you meet, and current coworkers, then go for it. You will probably make loads of money.

When someone says I back it 150% its another zombie trying to keep you for understanding you can do this yourself.
Its another pyramid scheme. Period

Oh. And if you expect to keep buying "every day" products with the kickback? It will cost you another $75 per year. I am furious about being involved with them and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Use your heads people.

I belong to Team National. The pyramid is the push not the actual savings. That's a big problem. We told the guy we would only promote it if it made financial sense without recruiting others. It had to stand on its own. Maybe over 25 years you'll get a payback but I can find discounts very similar elsewhere on the same goods and services without having to join anything. We got taken.

Do I have to pay 2200 to get a job? Or maybe a job I like better? I can just go get a job I like and not have to pay 2200 to get it. Just not a fit for me bugging people to do this I guess.

Guys, I believe in this company 150% and I am confident that one day soon, my father will be eligible to retire without a worry in the world only because I wasn't scared to check out what this company has to offer!! I advise you to do the same thing I did and change your life for the better! Stop working for someone else to retire!! It is the best choice I have made in 24 years! The savings is awesome and the income is impeccable!

It is absolutely not a scam and there are people on here posting false things about this company. A scam doesn't stay in business for 17 years

Terrible. Make it look good but really is a terrible scam

You know closed minded people will always be content in what they have. When the Wright brothers were trying to fly, people laughed and ridiculed them:yet, now we fly to places every day. Team National is a legitimate business and offers savings to members. People pay Sams club every year to enable them to shop there but no one calls this a pyramid scam. You will never get anywhere in life with a negative attitude and people in general want to see you fail, so they don't feel bad about their life. Whether you join for the savings or the opportunity to thrive in the buisness end it is benafical to those who join.

Lisa E is a flat out liar. The way she tried to make it sound is a flat out lie and is not the way Team National works.

For our family of 5 we are saving over $100 a month buying the same products from the same stores we already have. No one has ever hassled or bugged us to buy anything. We were presented the information and with some quick comparison shopping saw how we could save big money. On the optional earnings side n one has pressured us. We do refer friends and family because we have experienced first hand the savings. If they see the information and want it great . If not great to we thank them for their time and thats it. No one will beg plead or bother anyone to join. People either see the value or they do not.
We are starting to see a good second part time income from this. It is totally legit The company president is on the ethics board of the Direct Selling Association

I read into this company as we have friends who are big pushers. When you see the fine print, you see this company is setting you up to fail. You HAVE to keep getting people and your people HAVE to keep getting people, well you get the picture. One of the selling points made was she only worked about 10 hrs a week. I seriously doubt that. Seems she is on the road all the time. The other point was that it was not a pyramid scheme. Well what do you call it when your success depends on the success of people under you, and the success of people under THOSE people? And so on? All the people the trotted out to give testimony were STILL working for someone else. GO FIGURE>

I'm still considering purchasing a membership with TN. I've looked at the opportunities to save a lot of money by buying online with businesses that I do business with all the time where I live. Why not take advantage of the savings AND get paid for doing so. Yea, the commissions may be small, but if you purchase $100 of items from drugstore.com, then per the commission on that, you save $8.00. and pay NO Shipping, no gas costs to go to your reg place of shopping!! Its delievered right to your doorstep!! Making time to do more important things. As for the "selling" of the membership to others....its a way of showing that you care about them and want them to have the advantage of getting the same savings as you do...with all that being said, because of the "point" system and bringing others onboard, I see it as a "reward" for you doing just that...bringing others in on the savings...I'm still investigating and weighing my options as I would any other venture I may decide to partake in....and I'd encourage others to do that as well...this opportunity may not benefit some...it is what it is..present it truthfully and thoroughly, then if they wanna join..fantastic!! If not, let them pass on by yet love them anyways..and let them know that. Happy Easter to all..

My husband and I just received the sales pitch this week. The guy had no clue what he was "selling." He referred us to "testimonials" on a website and called a couple different cult members to explain it. I got it right away...We give the guy $2200 and then we find six other people to give $2200 and then we will get a $1500 check. Do that math..who is getting rich? The upper crust of the pyramid...and you have to sign up at least one person every six months to maintain that check. If you don't, the person that signed you up gets that money. A business where the boss is hoping you fail. Oh, but there is this group buying club...after you set up a yearly fee "business" web site to get a little refund off your online purchases (and pay crazy shipping fees.) Six percent refund from Target? I get 5% and pay no shipping because I shop locally. They also offer great vitamin/weight loss products for a greatly inflated price. You want to keep track of your "down line"--who you signed up and who they signed up? That will be $75 please... Needless to say, we doubled our money by folding it over and putting it back in OUR pocket.
