Lyoness Review 2011


Lyoness – Money back with every purchase – Lyoness is an Austria based independent, country and sector spanning shopping community, connected through one unique Cashback Card. This enables Lyoness members to receive an unbeatable benefit: Money back with every purchase. Every purchase made at a Lyoness loyalty partner brings money back into your account.

  1. Dear Sir/Madam,
    I joined Lyoness UAE a few weeks ago and had no clue as to how it worked. Today I attended a presentation to learn more and I was extremely pleased with Lyoness and the whole story of how it started and how fast it is expanding. Congratulations!

    Although I am currently living in the UAE with my family, I will be moving back to Australia in the near future. I believe Lyoness has not yet entered Australia. If this is in your agenda, I would love to be a part of it. I would sincerely appreciate the opportunity to join your company and to set it up in Australia where the potential is massive. I have the drive and the passion to make something I believe in work. Currently I have my own home based business which I started two years ago and now is a well known product in Abu Dhabi – UAE. It is a celebration cakes business called Tickls celebration cakes – This business too was started and grown through sheer passion and commitment to give my customers a unique product that exceeds their expectations.

    I am confident that with the right training I can be a valuable addition to your team and will be a key player in growing Lyoness in Australia and the rest of the world. I sincerely do hope that you would consider me and I look forward to a favourable response from you.

    Best wishes for the continued success of your business.

    Inakshi Kurian.

  2. I was contacted by a person in the USA and I am interested in the card.
    Just as you know, I am doing some research because now days there are thousands of scams going around.
    Could you tell me if you are moving into the USA soon?

    Thank you for your time and effort answering my question.

    2. Hi There, I am a new LYO memeber in London, I am wanting to become a PP in the next couple of weeks. If there was an advice you could give me what would it be? What was your story with Lyoness? I did 3 meetings with frinds of mind who I though will be so excited about the idea as I am, but instead they said they need to think it over and research…, I couldn’t believe it…
      One more question, when you become a PP do you have exactly a year 9from registartion month to same month next year) to confrim level 2, or does it count from the beginning/end of calendar year?

  8. Hello Everyone,
    I became a premium Lyoness business member in  May of 2010 and this is a truly amazing opportunity with no risk!  The one and only global loyalty program by 2020.   Anyone can have this opportunity for free after we have captured the market share or they can start now, optimize their membership and grow their network/market share!  The only catch is that the business will only be built once.  I am now focusing all of my energy and time into this business and would be glad to field any questions anyone may have.  [email protected]  
    Imagine making just a little bit of money off of all the purchases of daily necessities from your network of friends and family, their network of friends and family, their network of friends and family and so on to infinity without changing their spending habits at all(meaning they still shop where they wanna shop, how they wanna shop and when they wanna shop) and with no additional cost(not only no cost but they will make money) to anyone for the rest of your and their lives?
    If any of this sounds interesting contact me anytime,
    warm regards,

  9. Zdravo Nezilovo,Bogomila,
    ako ste zainteresirani za Lyoness Biznisot vo Makedonija i voopsto vo celiot svet mozam da vi pomognam kako da uspeete.
    Pozz Nikola, Skype : nikola_georgievski

  10. Hi Everyone, My name is Kerry and I just recently became a Business Builder with Lyoness. I am located in Melbourne, Victoria Australia. If you would like more information about Lyoness or how to become a Business Builder yourself then please send me an email and we will then arrange a presentation for you..Cheers

    1. Hi there. I’ve recently become a Premium Member of Lyoness here in Australia. This is an amazing opportunity for ‘Everyone’!! . The best I’ve seen over my life time. If anyone in Aus, particularly Queensland, would like to know more, please contact me!!
      ‘Together We Are Strong’ … Linda

     THIS REALLY works.
    We have been on board for a few months and have made way over 5 times our investment.
    Now admittedly im not sitting on the couch dreaming, but if you bother to take the time to understand the genius of this concept, it absolutely brilliant
    I am gobsmacked when i hear from people who 'claim' they haven’t made any money. I cant see how that is even possible.
    Lets face it its FREE CASH BACK to the customer. Who wouldn’t rather CASH than points. It not rocket science.
    I think the problem is some business builders think they are the customers…. WE ARE NOT! We are the brikkies and laborers building the global mall shop by shop.
    If you don’t like start up work and roughing it a little until its fully rolled out then DON’T PUT IN YOUR MONEY!
    But if you see the global vision of this business. An alternate economy and banking system, not some silly little rewards card, then you will realize this is probably THE most timely business on the planet
    Lets not ruin it by labeling something new we don’t understand ‘scam’!!!
    If the shops you want aren’t on board – Get off your ass and sign them up!!! SIMPLE!
    It is by FAR the cleverest and most profitable thing i have ever seen or done.
    I’m also more than happy to prove earnings or go through specifics to anyone thinking about joining (who does not already have a sponsor) – You can contact me

    1. Hello geoff !

      please send me your email.

      Please let me know if you are going to sign me in as soon as you can, because i want to do this asap … I have 2 friends here in the unit that are interested, and i would like to sign them on under my code etc.

      [email protected]

  12. Lyoness is not a investment,its a down payment for future purchases and is a risk-free company,if you look at this lyoness review at the very top of this page its says investment,if the ceo hubert freidl seen this he would be disgusted at who is writing these blogs,and another thing the lyoness office hasen't even opened in Austraila yet,this is a respectable company so respect it.

  14. I am happy to be the USA headquarters of Lyoness – New York, New York. I am sad that this article is fraught with errors:

    – personal cashback is 1-2%
    – 0.5% friendship bonus is on two levels, direct and indirect friends
    – Basicly you can start as a business partner with an investment of ?2,000 ($2,900) … that is FALSE. That is the best start for your business. But you can start with $225 or $450.
    – To qualify for commissions you need 4+ business partners…. that is FALSE… that is to qualify for loyalty commission, loyalty partner bonus and bonus units. the friendship bonus is a form of comission… and even so, you dont need 4 business partners, you need 4 directs, each with 1 unit….

    Why someone would put together a supercially researched article laden down with errors is beyond me.


    1. hi terrence,

      can you help me clarify the commission qualifications you mentioned:

      1) do we then need 4 business partners to qualitfy for loyalty comm, loyalty parrtner bonus & bonus points? does this include the 1st & 2nd level friendship bonus? does this mean we cannot earn from the binary accounting system?

      2) do we need 4 directs to earn the friendship bonus?

      3) since its binary, will the accounting units get “flushed” on a regular basis?

      thanks terrence,

  15. This business is in pre-launch in Australia, and I can tell you that it is not only legitimate, it?s absolutely brilliant in the way it attracts the right kind of people to create the word-of mouth buzz that will ensure a huge public launch when the time comes, and therefore great rewards for those people who have put in the effort.
    If you decide that Lyoness makes sense to you, it means you’ll be involved in building and launching a fantastic business that works on a number of levels. It is not only hugely successful in Europe and other markets, but it is in business with some of the most well known brands in the world, such as Porsche and Apple.
    If you?ve read Malcolm Gladwell?s book called ?The Tipping Point? you?ll certainly understand the power of this method of rolling out a business in a new market.
    This is a business opportunity only for those who ?get it?; people who are a bit visionary, entrepreneurial and know a great opportunity when they see it. If that?s you, and you?re prepared to put in the effort over the next 12-18 months, then it is an opportunity for early retirement.
    I?m from Sydney, and if you want to know more about it, feel free to email me on [email protected].

    1. Hi Michael,

      I just want to say hi and commend you on your comments about Lyoness. I’m from the Sunshine Coast Qld and I’m so excited about Lyoness !! What an amazing opportunity for people who can see the ‘big’ picture! Linda

  16. I just joined in the Netherlands.
    Being sceptic as I am it took me several months severe investigating before I dared to step in.
    Four weeks later I feel sorry I waited for so long. I sure missed something.

    I really agree with Geoff.
    In our country we grow up learning to be careful fore these devilish Pyramide systems.
    No one tells us that we work in the legal Pyramide of the factory, and put our money on the legal Pyramide of the bank, hoping for something what won’t come.
    What a time I have waisted fighting those prejudices, Lyoness is a Circle.

    It’s a magnificent system in which you get something when you give something. Isn’t that the first step to a more friendly world.
    This system can serve anyone in a way what fits them.
    If one only want’s the cash back, then just take it easy and get your cash back.
    Fore the ones who want more out of it, invest as much energy as you want to be paid for.

    For me, I’m so grateful someone gave me the chance to sign up. Finally I can start saving for a real pension.
    For my medical expenses, and for something extra for those who need it.
    Beyond that with every purchase I do I give something to charity, that’s new to me and it feels good.
    My turn to do something back, so for those who like to hear more…
    Don’t hesitate and ask one of my partners on this page or me for more information.

    Kind Regads

    1. Hi Pieter,

      I had better make my comment in English as many may not understand Dutch. Please let me know how many shops have joined Lyoness in Holland and where can I find a list of the partners. Nice to see someone from Holland involved in this opportunity.

  17. Hi Terrence,
    all the companies in online shopping are making their own decision on which market they will be our partners. We have Apple in Austria.

    Regards, Nikola

  18. I am from Sydney Australia and I have been working for myself in multiple companies for over 20 years.

  21. G’day Everyone,

    I am excited about Lyoness! I am passionate about Lyoness! I am grateful someone gave me the opportunity to join Lyoness! I am a Lyoness Business Development Parntner. This is an opportunity of a lifetime. I am offering this oppoprtunity, to join Lyoness, to those who want to create a bright and rewarding future for themselves and their families. You may not have heard much about Lyoness, but if you want ALL the CORRECT information about Lyoness, and this wonderful opportunity then contact me immediately! In my team you will receive all the help and support you need to be very successful in Lyoness


    1. G’day Shaun,

      Thank you for your request for information about this fabulous opportunity, Lyoness. I can be contacted on phone No: 0414 37 89 84


  22. Lyoness is unique opportunity born in Eastern Europe and now hitting whole globe! Its soooo hard to start from “little countries” and make a break through in the whole world!!! Most of the companies do it other way, think about it.
    Now its a massive opportunity to benefit from Asia, USA, Australia market in the win-win-win situation.
    As a UK business partner joined in 2008 (pre-launched stage) with strong leadership from first countries I am very happy to give you best support to grow your business fast and effectively.
    Our results are about decisions we make in our life.
    skype:mikon77, [email protected]

  23. It’s a very effective loyality program for your existing clients that if used wisely, can bring new clients to your company and give a boost. I am an owner of two firms in Greece and i can tell that it has great potential because it helps. In most countries around the world there are financial problems and business men looking new way of promoting their services. This idea of cash back is very innovative and gives serious motivation to the consumer to prefer companies that are registered. If you want to learn more about how it works and how it will work for your company or for you as a person, contact me. The most important thing is to choose a good upline to register to. It plays a very important role.

    It’s also a huge opportunity for countries that start now… the ones who open the market, will be very lucky.

  24. Woolworths, Caltex, BIG W, Dick Smith, Domain, Harvery Norman just to name few of the Lyoness trading partners… The beginning looks very promissing..

  25. Lyoness is one of the best options for someone looking for their own business. If you compare the cost of a down payment on your future shopping to be a Premium Member to build a business to the cost of owning a franchise, this is the best deal with the greatest rewards and without risk. Remember our motto – Together we are strong! Shop and help others shop and you will make money…serious money if you want!

  26. Pegi says:

    It is very unfortunate to see that significant number of people are geting involved into the Lyoness system with very little or if at all due diligence.
    A a result of that there is high risk that full potentials of the system are either not explained properly or even worse, incorrect information gets absorbed.
    As a consequence of such irresponsible behaviour they end up deceptive and then most of them end up spreading their frustration which puts other people away.

    The system relies on team work hence support from the person who introduces you in the system is crucial whilst face to face engagement brigs best results.
    At the beginning, every new member needs unreserved support and not only love, compassion and false promises, but answers to every possible question and the most important thing of all, realistic expectations should be laid out.
    Advice? unless you get strait answers to all of your questions and you feel comfortable with them?. do not get involved? look elsewhere.
    The system is completely transparent and there is no reason anything to be hidden?


  27. My husband brought home the brochure from a work friend (I believe he is a business partner)

    We were told that if we sign up not only do we get the .5% of our purchases as a rebate, but that we get .5% of our UPLINES purchases as well as .5% of anyone we introduce…..

    We have googled the heck out of Lyoness but have only found information explaining the .5% from people we introduce and .5% those friends introduce.

    If we would recieve the .5% of our uplines purchases this would make it much easier to have our friends and family join as they can see that their success is tied closely to theirs, but I dont want to tell people the wrong thing.

    Thanks in Advance for your assistance.

  28. Hello beautifull people of LYONESS Well i,m from Spain yesterday one man come to me to show how it works really only 1%
    and i put 2000 Euros are you crazy man?well now 1% cashback of the purchase price to the Lyoness Member or Business Member.(juaas jhuas juas in spanish lenguage we said “Como vais maquinas a quien quereis engañar un 1 % igual de ruina que un banco )
    0.5% Friendship bonus (How many friendships we need for some money ?¿?¿?¿?¿)
    Country and sector spanning shopping (Well you can do that if you have a pc do you know China or Taiwan …or other countries on you buy very cheap than the other one)
    Four types of shopping
    One customer card for numerous loyalty partners……

    Well by the way the best is this “Compensation plan

    The compensation plan is complicated. Basicly you can start as a business partner with an investment of ?2,000 ($2,900) up to ?25.000 ($36,000) for founders positions. To qualify for commissions you need 4+ business partners.”
    AJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJ the best really because i worth it jajajajajajajaj you´re so crazy …
    I NEED TO PUT MY MONEY FOR WIN MONEY ?Sorry but for that i go to london and create myself a Capital parters and i now where my money goes ….

    1. Hi,
      that man who show you Lyoness it show it to you totally wrong. The card is free and no annual fees needed, you can shop with it every day buying food,gas,furniture,clothes……etc.and you can get 1-2% cash-back, that is the first benefit which is smallest among 9 others.
      You do not need four premium members(business partners) to get all the benefit.. (to qualify for all commissions) .
      By the way every member has it’s own account (on-line office)and we know where are all the money goes.

      Nikola Georgievski

  29. I spent several months researching Lyoness and what it has to offer. I am working from home building residual income based on my own shopping and those that I referred. No fees, no products, no auto ship, You shop, you get paid, your lifeline shops, they and you get paid. What more could you want and without risk? Lyoness has changed my life 🙂
