Tool of the Day: MFC Box Set and Booster Pack
The LIFE Business is running a sale on the Mental Fitness Challenge Box Set and MFC Booster Pack. The deal is for $269.99, 270PV, 25% off, savings of $90 off the regular $359.99 price.
Let’s see what you get in the package:
- Module 1
- Resolved by Orrin Woodward: Regular price: $21.95
- 8 Audio CDs
- Module 2
- Rascal by Chris Brady: Regular price $21.95
- 4 Audio CDs
- Module 3
- Launching a Leadership Revolution by Chris Brady and Orrin Woodward: Regular price $15.95
- 4 Audio CDs
- MFC Challenge Booster
- 14 Audio CDs
In total, you get: 30 Audio CDs and 3 books. Let’s do some more calculations to find the price of the CD’s. Assuming the price of the books stays the same:
$269.99 (25% off) – $59.85 (price of the books at retail) = $210.14 (price of Audio CDs)
$210.14 / 30 = $7/CD
Regular price is $269.99 + $90 = $359.99
$359.99 – $59.85 (price of the books at retail) = $300.14
$300.14 / 30 = $10/CD
I noticed that LIFE CD products are priced at $10. TEAM CD’s used to be priced around $5-7 a CD, right? And, didn’t the LLR CD’s used to be TEAM CD’s before they were LIFE CD’s? If so, it looks like there has been some price inflation going on!
I know that if you are on subscription, you get a discount of 20%, but that still prices LIFE products (which may have been TEAM products) at $8/CD. I remember back in the MonaVie days, Orrin would say that as volume goes up, the price of the tools would go down. I guess the 50% payout to LIFE leaders — that Orrin talks about so much — has to come from somewhere. Remember those comments of his decrying the 30% Jay Factor during the Amway/Quixtar lawsuits? Guess it’s okay now if it serves his purposes, no?
By the way, most people in the LIFE Business probably already have copies of the three books and a number of the CD’s, so I don’t see how this is a great deal for them. It gets worse when Orrin and company “update” the packs and urge people to buy the them all over again.
