Tool of the Day: P492 Business Traveler Package
A new feature on this site wherein we take a look at a questionably priced, dubious value tool from an Amway or MonaVie Teaching and Training System. Since we’ve been on a MonaVie-roll these days, we’ll select R3Global’s P492 Business Traveler Package to review first. For $148 (original price is $185), you receive:
- 1 Padfolio: $20 (P449
- 1 Mouse Pad: $1.50 (P447)
- 1 Business Card Holder: $10 (P601)
- 1 Black Diamond Pen: ???
- 1 Trolley Bag: ???
Pay close attention to the individual prices for each item. I could not find a separate listing for either the Black Diamond Pen nor the Trolley Bag. In all fairness, unless the pen is diamond-encrusted, it can’t cost more than $5, right?
Add them all up and you have $36.50 before the price of the Trolley Bag. Thus, the bag is either $111.50 (sale price) or $148.50 (original price). Now, I’m looking at the bag in the photo, and I have a difficult time seeing how that bag could be worth $112 and $150, do you? Also note that the bottles of MonaVie and the can of EMV are not included with the P492 kit. Can anyone in all honesty tell me that the P492 Business Traveler Package is a good value?
No, this is yet another example of an overpriced, undervalued tool that’s being hawked and sold to distributors. The sad thing is that many distributors believe they are getting a good value purchasing these tools, primarily because their upline leaders say they are worth it. After all, why would these “godly” leaders want to exploit us? Why would they want to sell us tool after tool, seminar ticket after seminar ticket, case after case, if they have our best interests at heart?
There’s a simple answer to that. Maybe they aren’t what they say they are.
