Team National does not give you commisons back. I was asked to join this by a friend that I trusted. I joined just for the savings I bought from the Big N website and never recieved a commisons check back. I haven't heard of any body making money either from selling the benefits package. When you call and ask for a refund the tell you to call back and give you the run around I paid $2,195.00 Don't let this happen to you or lose a friend over this scam.

Working for me!!!

AUTHOR: TheTruth - (United States of America)

I purchased a Team National membership nearly five months ago.  I was excited about saving money and possibly making money to supplement my law enforcement income.  I very quickly realized both of those goals.

After two weeks of referring the membership I earned a check which was larger than two weeks earnings in my regular job.  I began sharing the membership part time and in doing so have matched the income of my regular employment.  Needless to say, the past five months have been life changing.  Anyone who doubles their salary will tell you that.

I've also used the membership to refinance my home through Wells Fargo Home Mortgage who is a member of Team National.  They offered me the lowest interest rate I could find with no closing cost.  I've saved nearly a thousand dollars on furniture, and several hundred on purchases through shopping online at our marketplace.

Granted, I have put some time into sharing this awesome opportunity.  If you  think you will sign your name on a paper and start receiving checks, well you're going to be disappointed.  But if you choose to put some effort into it you will be pleasantly surprised.

Team National ripped me too

AUTHOR: Rob67 - (United States of America)

I am a single father of three teens and I am a part time internet marketer to supplement our income. I do not get child support and was not allowed to stay in the military due to my inablity to deploy overseas anymore. I was at the grocery store ran into an old friend from my car sales days, he was with another fella and said hey got something good here you might wanna hear. I said ok and gave my number to the other gent. He called multiple times until I had time to listen to a "sizzle" call. Then he put me on three way with another guy that talked up the opportunity. Then he asks"we can we get together?" I say "I am very busy" he kept pushing so i agreed to meet at a fast food joint for breakfast. We meet, he has some other guy with him, we chat a bit and then he has me watch a video on a portable player. The vid pumped up the savings and the incredible money you can make. Minimum $375 or so to start. He pushes and says he will talk to everyone for me and I will be pullin $$ quick! He also says it's $2,000 and they higher I start the better. I made a mistake because I thought this could help my kids and I joined "ask to buy when the emotion is high" I payed $900 on the spot.

My last bit of savings, (I told my kids about this and that it was a smart move).. He then was quite quick to say he's gotta go and said call him with anyone I wanted him to talk too. He wanted me to give him a list with all of my family and friends including their numbers!!! I gave him two people the next week, when they didnt jump in right away he didnt wanna talk anymore. He called one of them multiple times at work. They use what is called your "circle of influence" I didnt have anyone in my "circle of influence" that could afford even $375. He never called me again or attempted to assist me. This is not geared to "average" people with lower income only those that can afford the entry price and that actually purchase high ticket items. So in the end not ONE SINGLE PERSON ever called/contacted me to ask if they could help. MLM companies online have been more helpful. There are good people in the company no doubt, I got a bad apple in this guy.

Personal Responsibility

AUTHOR: Andrea G. - (United States of America)

As a Team National member for almost 2 yrs. now, I have found that personal responsibility has a lot to do with anything in life, but especially a membership based buyers co-op like TN. If you joined Sam's Club & never darkened the door....of course you will not enjoy the membership or save any money. However, if you truly have purchased through the stores (Kohl's, Home Depot, Target, Barnes & Noble, etc.) & have make purchases & have not yet received your commissions, call the office. They are wonderful people to deal with & there are not a ton of folks answering phones so you will get to know them if you call for any reason about anything. They are awesome!



I have saved over $1600 just in one year alone & I just don't shop that much.....just shoes, toiletries, art supplies, business supplies, etc. The rebates won't be sent unless they have been released by the stores & they stores release it after the return waiting period is over. They will not send a check for $5.00...but hold it until you have at least $15.00 in rebates for the commission rebate area of the website. Remember that the factory direct prices are prenegotiated prices....not rebate savings. You can save $2195 in short order if you are buying furniture, mattresses,  jewelry, flooring, etc. as they are large purchases & the factory direct is about 35 cents on the dollar. 



Make sure you are not setting expectations unrealistically....your host should be able to explain a lot of this to you or a Presidential Director should if your host is very new as well. You can always call the home office for help in anything. Very accessible. Good luck!

AUTHOR: DONNAK - (United States of America)

I am not a member of Team National yet but I do have friends that are and I know for a fact that they do get the rebates and they do make money with this.  I have seen their checks.  Dont know what the problems are with the ones making the complaints.  I do not know it to be a scam.

Was Just Approached by Team National

AUTHOR: Gerald - (U.S.A.)

Just sat through a presentation given by Team National members and listened to their spiel.  This is obviously a pyramid scheme, as evidenced by the fact that there were two representatives (one obviously training the other), they found me out of the blue via a business card I posted on a bulletin board, and it was all about the brotherhood and how every meeting they attended brought in tons of business.  I feel sorry for those that have bought into this scheme, especially since the fee is tremendously high at over $2100!  No matter what anyone claims about how great this TN scheme is, save your money.  For me, it was about advertising my rental property and how this is a brotherhood where everyone is a family and I would make more money via putting my advertisement on their site, than the places I already market my property on.  First, all it takes is a little time on the web to find products for better prices and all you have to do is have internet access.  Secondly, if you are promoting a product or service, then why would you pay $2100 for virtually nothing when all this site is is a portal to whatever is already on the web, there is no space or place for you to advertise.  Third, anyone seeking a service or product should first go to sites that are dedicated to whatever service or product they are seeking.  That's where everyone else with any sense goes and at no cost to do so!  I could go on and on about what a bad deal this scheme is.  So do yourself a favor and keep your money and don't get trapped into this scheme.  If all these Team National promoters were actually saving and making so much money, then why do they need to sell this nonsense to you and why is it so darned expensive??

With Team National, you are paid for what you are worth!

AUTHOR: Lynn - (U.S.A.)

If you are an IMD with Team National and you are not taking advantage of the many benefits or you are not referring the benefits pkg. to your family/friends, then you will not reap any of the benefits. Do not cry around about being ripped off if you are not going to do anything with this business. Clearly in the DVD you are told something like, "you make what you are worth." If you work hard, you will be paid well. If you don't, well then I guess you won't. To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did. So in our regular jobs, wouldn't it be nice to be "paid what you're worth". My husband and I have only been involved for less than 90 days and we are seeing significant progress with referrals and savings. Those of us that actually USE this system, will be benefitting for years down the road while those of you that wasted your fee will still be crying around about it because you didn't DO anything with it. I challenge you to use the system for 30 days and see what it does for you and your family. As for mine, we will be debt free and living the life we have wished we could for years.

Very happy Team National IMD

its a great company!

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

I've been with this company for 7 yrs. It does what it says they will do. I've gotten both the referral commisions and checks from buying stuff through our website. They do however have the first timers time frame ( I think its 3 months ) before your 1st check comes from the BigN marketplace. But after that it's a monthly check. It used to be the check had to be over $25, but I got one awhile ago for only $15.
Its saved us and my extended family alot more than it ever cost us to join. My wife actually signed us up. I did some of the referring and generated the bigger commision checks of $1500.
They're real, they're expanding into other areas of saving us members more money in different industries. I'm getting more from them now then when we joined them. You'll never go wrong with this company!! I get paid for how hard I work it. To be very truthful, I haven't been doing it lately, but thats my fault with time and work, family and things. But its always there for me to save money with. My proof is in the furniture we buy through them. I have a $4500 pool table, I paid $1550. My wife has a oak office desk and credensa that this company saved us $900 on. For starters, that ain't bad.
I saw your comments here while looking up another company and just happened to check on Team National. I don't think you'll ever see one for very long on this site, as they have always bent over backwards to get you satisfied. Or your money back, even though they won't advertise that part.
Join them/us. their for real.

Please advise, I need more information

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (U.S.A.)

I was approached by a good friend of mine about this "new" way of "bussiness" and/or "savings" that will ultimatetly will generate money back to me by just buying via internet all the everyday "things" we buy at the regular retail stores, supermarkets, oil change places, even travel tickets!, etc. Is this the same company you are talking about?..and if it is I would like to know how this "company" works and how much you have to "invest" to signed up with them or "belong to the club" like I was told. For some reason my friend does not tell me how much is going to cost me because I need to see a DVD presentation first?! Anyway any help/advise would be very appreciated.
Thanks

I'm surprise by your comment

AUTHOR: Nj0670 - (U.S.A.)

I have been with Team National for over one year and am quite satisfied. I have indeed received checks from selling the benefits packages and the website.

Granted, I've only been a member for one year, but so far my first year has been quite satisfying and well worth it. I'm very surprised to hear you are having so much trouble. Actually, you are the only one I know of at the present time with this trouble. I know many members in my area are quite pleased.

I wish you the best of luck.
