What does the average person earn in Usana?
Answer: NOTHING!

According to USANA's average earnings statement for the United States, each year two-thirds of USANA distributors do not even receive a commission check. Therefore, the "average person" earns nothing. The "mean average commission" paid out for the year 2011 (last reported year) is $616.72



United States federal government mandates a nationwide minimum wage level of $7.25 per hour. USANA's average associate purchases $7.02 worth of product each day which could potentially be retailed for $10.80 for a whopping $3.78 profit.

It would take the average USANA associate 15 DAYS to make the same amount of money that someone working minimum wage makes in only 1 DAY.

    2. How is this a lie? USANA has stated that two thirds of associates have not received a commission. Therefore, the Average USANA Associate earns nothing.

  2. We have averaged $2200/month with USANA for past 9 years. Been mostly retired for past 5 years, other than to maintain PC and Retail Customers to ensure compliance. Products changed wife's life, got her off 11 prescription meds, and support her to live vibrantly. Still love the products (which cost us around $250/month. This tiny, but steady stream of income eliminated a $55,000 credit card debt and is paying for our kids post-secondary! We are living the Dream. #usanarocks, #weloveusana

  3. I notice USANA have now descended into countries such as Indonesia where no doubt their winning B/S formula will find a receptive audience in such a relative immature populace. To my mind USANA's cultivation of naive populations is little better than cigarette companies standing outside school gates handing out cigs for free!

  4. Typical pyramid like so many others out there. Stay away and save your money.

  5. Hi Watchdog,

    Writing an anonymous comment here. I just want you to know my experience. My upline recruited me during a moment of vulnerability, when someone close to me died a very sudden and horrible death. They kept taking me to 'networking' events (I wanted to network for my legitimate future business that I've been working on building). I signed up in a moment of weakness and he had me sign up one other person I know, by pressuring me into having a really awkward opening at my house.

    I haven't pushed any of my friends away with it because I didn't want to sign up anyone else other than the friend I signed up already, which was in good faith, for training. We thought we'd get sales and marketing training, as well as training about how to explain a business plan etc. The ONLY training there's been has been absolutely cultish brainwashing rubbish.

    They talk about how rich you'll get and say that you're the problem, YOU haven't been taking enough action. Our 'mentor' hasn't moved to the next level because of YOU not supporting them enough. When you ask a direct question, you NEVER get a direct answer.

    My potential customer's question was about why USANA sells fish oil and not Krill oil and there was never a direct answer. My customer, a nutritional specialist who'd read about the quality products was interested but linked me a peer-reviewed study which showed the benefits of Krill Oil and asked me why a company like this wouldn't have a product that has more benefits. My uplines got MAD at me for asking this and said I wasn't being supportive, and I should convert my friend to fish oil if I want to take this opportunity seriously! What the hell is that? Seriously!

    So I stopped going to training, despite them harassing me. So the reason I joined the company was gone. As I was about to distribute the ashes of said friend (whose death had to be investigated in the country so it took some time to get them back), I remember some 18 year old kid was telling me my attitude is wrong... because I wasn't HAPPY on the way to the training I was being bullied into going to first!

    I know that some people in this company are good, and have sold well but the amount of pressure to attend cult-like meetings is huge. I've cancelled my auto-order, as has my 1 downline. We've been cold-calling things like beauty salons to get the cold-calling practice we've wanted, and if it ever turns out that we can earn commission (not with any help from their CRAP training cult programs), then we may re-activate the auto order but there's no bloody way either of us are paying for product that we have to try and offload to eBay.

    We hope that we can return some of our product with their new 1 year returns policy, as much of it is unopened because everyone we tried to sell it to couldn't justify the cost, even after showing them all of the various tests (i.e. you can see the proflavanol test and all of that on youtube).

    I don't want to identify myself, and I'm sorry for that Watchdog. I just fear that these people will be able to identify me by my story and that they'll keep calling me and coming to my house. It's a huge shame because 2 people I know in this company are very kind, but what's concerning to me is the amount of doctors they are winning over with the comparative guide and the doctors book.

    I kept being chastised because I didn't WANT to recruit anyone who wasn't intrerested. I only recruited my 1 person that I recruited because they expressed interest in business training, as stated above. We regret it so much.

    Please keep going with what you're doing, but I am not sure you'll ever have any success in uncovering the cult given the strength of the USANA machine.

  6. Watchdog...thank you so much!! I've been searching for an honest blogg talking about Usana and I think I found it. I had...a friend who wanted me to suscribe, I only attended to one conference an it really was inspiring!! If I would had have the money in that moment, I would have suscribed...thank god I hadn't had the money.
    I was very vulnerable because they were talking about trying new things, go for it!, don't be afraid. And I hate when people tell me I'm not trying hard enough...yes...that is a stupid reason, Im embarrased u.u. But well...human nature...I supose.
    Yes I've seen they are very cultish...you can't tell anything wrong or ask too much about USANA products or they will see you like crap. I think my friend Is not a bad person, and I think many people there are but ...yet ignorants...and ignorance can be very harmful.
    They show me the numerous prices USANA have won and the suposedly test they have made...suposedly because in these times you never know who Is telling the truth, who is being payed for saying or writting some things.
    I've tryed some Usana products...but iI think the price is not worth it...tooo much!

    Sorry if my english is not good enough...I'm from Mexico...where is sooo easy to perform washbrains because of our vulnerability in money u.u... well I'm sad...people don't hear me...they are happy winning a little money on doing the least effort without thinking to much in what they are doing.

    Well...thank you..I hope some day..like the anonymous uphere says, Usana is uncovered once for all.

  7. In my opinion, USANA's products are good, marketing plan a bit not so far. But what is the most unfair thing is, HUMAN, if your upline sees you as a potential, she would want to sleep in your house, else, dont' expect anything from her.

    Becoming a consumers is the ideal involvement when dealing with USANA

  8. Hi USANA Watchdog! Have you researched about their Athlete Guarantee Program? Is it a lie too?

  9. Thank you for the information. At first i thought that this is a usana blog so i didn't mind openning it. Until it was mentioned in Ethan Vanderbuilt Scam Buster. I tried searching if usana is a scam or not because i almost believe its not. What really happened is that they got my mom into it because the system they are using when they finds you interested they even lend you the money to register in exchange to sell their products. And so it happenes to others too. My uncles wife is recruited also and even give more 19kphp and yet they didn't enroll her yet to become a member and used the money to the prospect upline of her to get the 3BC and what's the best part? she also sell the products and even remit it to the person recruiting them. WHAT A SHAME!

    I am very thankful about your blog as well as the Scam Buster. It backup my douts and back me up to my mom. She is now reading the blog as well. I read some of the comments about how you are going to earn in usana and it came out that i am right. Compared to what the recruiter said that you will earn through sale, where the truth is they will earn by ordering not selling.

    Keep it up.. Thank you..

  11. Thanks for your blog! Being in the allied health field, I am always getting approached by MLM for "nutrition", "vitamins and supplements" and "aromatherapy" - all of which the sales reps have no proper credentials to be selling. I was approached by somebody from USANA yesterday who was talking about all the research behind their overprices supplements. It took all I do to try not to laugh in her face.

  12. They tried to "get me on the team" last week. The Associate probed for questions about my friends to see if I had a strong social support network I thought it was really unprofessional. Furthermore, my knowledge of nutrition was insulted. As a clinical dietitian I could not believe the false claims this associate was making. Thinking about the individuals that buy these products because they've been told it will help get them off their medication sickens me. This blog is doing a great job of spreading the word but if anyone knows the next steps on filing a report against the company that would be helpful.

  13. USANAWATCHDOG must be studied by all who want to know the dirty tricks of MLMs. Unless for a unstated sinister purpose, no one would give free seminar or training.
    The recruit who is unexposed and desperate to get rich quick is just working for the recruiter.
    Collaborators are syndicate members who provide testimonials. The recruiters given the fancy titles of Directors also Mentors acquire a Cult personality of easy living and careless spending with their talent for fooling new scam victims.

  14. USANA invites recruits by offering "free seminar" with food and drinks to boot. Talking about "investment" and "financial freedom" and ridiculing smart thinking people as having "no open mind". The "mentor" a fancy name to the master scammer lives a lifestyle like the Great Gatsby movie character. I am with you, we against all scammers.

  15. This blog is not updated and not credible. Please put all your credentials here before telling all the "false claims" made by Usana. As well as to people who laugh at USANA, I can understand your situation. You don't have the money and enough courage to venture a business. Like what Jack Ma said, people dont know that business can bring more money than employment.

    If USANA is a scam, how come it is still existing and operating for 26years already? Think of it estupida.

  17. I am a Usana associate. And I am offended by the lack of real facts behind this attack website. Dr Myron Wentz, the founder and formulator of our products, is a world renowned immunologist and microbiologist who has won the Albert Einstein Award for Life Sciences, has built 4 charity hospitals overseas, and is an amazing humanitarian. I can also tell you that I know good decent people who have become Diamond Directors within 3-5 years working their Usana careers. But, it isn't a get rick quick scheme. You have to work your business, with determination and commitment. It is a stellar company, and the products are the best in North America. And they are independently lab tested by Canadian independent lab Usana and rated Editor's Choice Gold (the highest ranking amongst more than 1000 other brands) for potency, purity, and formulation. You are doing so much harm to people that need the income, and a career they can be proud of. And you know NOTHING about Usana. Shame on you.

    1. Myron Wentz received a phony Albert Einstein award from an investment firm that went out of business shortly after giving Myron Wentz this trophy. This was NOT the prestigious award given out by a very credible scientific organization....

      Of course it isn't a get rich quick scheme or else everyone would be making money in USANA. It is a pyramid scheme where only 1% of people making any money...

      To work hard in USANA means to recruit more distributors by convincing them they will make a lot of money. Those successful in USANA don't sell hardly any product. They make their riches from the commissions of those in their downline who are forced to personally purchase product in order to participate in the scheme....
