If your thinking about getting this don't. I don't think it is worth it. My mom purchased it. They advertise first off for only $25.00 you can start up and try it for 30 days. My mom ordered it got a code. I went to their website to check them out the little bit of porducts that they offer were sold out. Then it really cost $500 to be in it for the whole year. So I told her its not worth it send it back before your 30 days are up. She called to cancel it and they told her she had to write a letter saying why she wanted to cancel it and get it certified. Just wanted everyone to know if you plan on getting into this program its not worth it so save your money and your time. thanks

Yea I sort of figured so, they only show the infomercial on late night television when isomniacs will more and likely be the impulse buyer they are looking for. They sure do make it sound really good though. Im so sorry to hear that your mom had to find out this way. I sure hope that the "letter" they require you to send in gets there in the 30 days. All in all, if it doesnt, then its only $25, just think had she spent the $500!! I wonder why they require you to inform them of WHY you want to cancel though, that should be none of their business. If they offer a money back gaurantee, then what difference does it make? I hope that doesnt keep her from getting her money back, say if they dont like her response? If they are this crooked then no telling what they will say is a valid reason for money back. Wishing you the best of luck! Bay xx

Well, I was going to let the author tell you...lol Its like an oline store. They sell all kinds of little knick knacks and things like that. I think you also have books you can pass out to your friends and family as well. I knew someone who used to do this, but it wasnt the same company. You can charge what ever you would like to the customer, and then you pay the company whatever they charge you for it and you keep the rest. It sounds easy enough, and profitable, but theres alaways a catch to things like this. Bay xx

I am trying to find someone from Ohio who signed up with SMC around the time period of this thread of posts -- looking for someone who would be willing to get in touch with me and tell me about it. Are any of you from Ohio?

Actually, I haven't had any problems with them at all. I faxed the application and mailed them a check. You really can't make real money unless you find a store to sell wholesale to though. I can't bring myself to charge my friends and family more than I pay, so I ended up with an .84 profit one year. I have one small shop owner who buys wholesale price list, plus shipping, but she only buys a few times a year, so that's how I ended up like $200 ahead this year. (But I did get alot of Christmas gifts, too) I forgot about my renewal last year and was simply blocked from the website until I paid up. I work at the bank that I have my account at, and won't give them that info, I know better, lol! They do have some nice stuff, always changing. Makes ya wonder what the cost actually is. But I'm sorry to see all the bad experiences with this company. I guess it's all in what you expect from it. They offer a product, and how you sell it and what you make of it is all up to you. You are in business for yourself. And to be realistic, you can't make money without investing a bit. Just my 2 cents.

That is very helpful.I am from Connecticut and they don't sell the smc in this state. My mom was thinking about doing it and having it sent to my god-father in New York and see how it works. But I am glad that you shared this so now I can tell her forget it.
