  6. Cordial saludo.
    Lyoness es una excelente Empresa de alcance mundial y con más de 8 años de experiencia, con gente seria y dispuesta a ayudar a las demás personas. El Negocio y su concepto es simple y sencillo, por tanto, me gustaría Asociar o Afiliar al Señor Rod Cook, porque su ignorancia no sólo muestra las cosas desatinadas a que puede llegar, sino que hace daño a muchas personas alrededor del mundo que queremos hacer las cosas bien. Estoy dispuesto a enseñarle este magnífico concepto a dicho señor… A  no ser, que insista en opinar sobre algo que no conoce desde dentro. jajajaja… hablar desde afuera lo hace cualquiera y hablar sin edificar: sólo Rod Cook.
    Invito al diálogo y a compartir buenas palabras desde nuestros corazones.
    Si quieres algo bueno y distinto, me encuentras en Skype: triunfadorintegro

  7. Hello from Atlanta, GA, USA!
    I was introduced to Lyoness while visiting Europe last summer. I am a busy insurance professional understanding sale and perpetual income. I have never had any desire to be involved in any network marketing situation. I found Lyoness FASCINATING to the point that I started to explore possibilities of getting involved in the USA where the company is launching right now. I love the concept, the challenge, the fun (!) and I see this as an alternative to the crisis that we all feel every day. It is a business of the future, it is a tool to help small and medium size business, especially the ones in your community where you and your neighbors shop everyday! It is a tool to help your Soccer team, your Varsity Club, your Church, your favorite charity organization, your children, your family and of course, it is a tool to help yourself – I call it – my 401K Lyoness plan! 🙂
    After several months of learning, investigating and educating ourselves, my husband Andy and I are holding monthly educational (not sales or recruiting) meetings with one of Lyoness Presidents Team member who visits Atlanta on regular basis. If you are interested in this ground breaking opportunity, please join us at the up-coming event on April 15, 2012 or let’s meet for a short overview in person or on-line! Looking for open minded people like you to help us take Lyoness off of the ground in Atlanta and built amazing community with which to reach out to the rest of the USA and even to about 40 countries worldwide where Lyoness emerges these days… You may decide to join our forming Sales team or utilize Lyoness just as a shopper, enjoying cash back with every purchase, even at a gas station. Membership is FREE. Contact “[email protected]” for more info.

  10. Hi there!
    When India is openening an office ?
    i want to know about new offices in Saudi Arabia, Egipt, Maroc, Pakistan.

    somebody nows when this countries are going to have an office ?


  11. ok… i know about that.
    i’m interested in middle east & africa & india = MEA
    if they open new offices in countries that are in MEA this year, besides ASIA.

  12. 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?

  15. FYI, Austrian courts have found against Lyoness in a court suit for defrauding investors and they must repay almost 18 million euros. They are spreading to US, Asia and elsewhere because they’ve burned their bridges in Europe. If it sounds too good to be true, it is. Its the oldest game in the world, an elaborate con dressed up to sound legitimate. The big ‘partnerships’ are those anyone with a website can do, its called affiliate marketing! These things mix hopes and dreams with commerce and they become like a cult. Here’s link to the suit info:

    1. Hi Barbara,

      obviously you have no Idea what is Lyoness. There are no investments in Lyoness. Only partial payments for vouchers, for those who want, other vise you can get the free cashback card without any obligation and monthly or yearly payments. Get the free card and start using it in more then 25.000 companies around the world and get cashback and you will see there is nothing wrong with it.
      My Company is Lyoness partner and we are not affiliated. By the way we are implemented in 39 countries in the world 26 are in Europe with almost customers.



    2. Barbara
      The link you provided proof nothing against Lyoness Business. It only relates to some advertising issues and wrongly refers investments as on Lyoness you don´t do them.
      I have studied the whole Lyoness Business, did my due diligence to understand how the system works and who the owners were, and found no evidence against it.
      In fact, a company with 4 accreditations, being one of them ISO 9001:2008, would be very difficult to be considered a fraud.
      Created in 2003, already in 40 Countries, with more than 110.000.0000 products and services available to their affiliates, with a global TV, considered Business of the Year in Austria, the Austria Open (Golf) is now Lyoness Open are strong reasons to believe on this company.
      A company like this which basis a very interesting income for their affiliates, based solely on shopping they do and shoppings their referrals do, with no fee to enroll and no monthly minimum buying obligations as this is, which in addition helps Merchants get more clients and a new way to earn money with their clients, of course had to bother some people.
      Because everyone knows that if you are doing something wright, you got to have haters…
      In Portugal we are growing and believe this will be the biggest company in the world in a near future.

  16. Hi I’m from the north of England and want to join force I have joined
    Lyoness and got my details on my phone but not recieved a card can
    Somebody please give me any information on becoming a lyoness member
    In the north of England heard and read many things about it but I’m
    Still not sure what to do or how to go about anything any help would be appreciated

    1. Hi Antony,
      if you have a smart phone you can download the Lyoness app and there you will have your card, or if you log on with your pass and when you will enter your on-line office you can print your virtual card. After making 200 Euros purchase you will receive your card at your adress.


  17. Just want to add my own note to this. Based on their accounting units where you need to accumulate 70 accounting units of $75 each to get the $675 pay out. That would mean you and your directs(sign ups) would need to spend $509,250 to get those 70 accounting units of $75 each. Do the math.. the accounting units of $75 each is the 2%-3% of the discount the vendor gives that goes into account. So $75 x 70= $5250. if that $5250 represents the 2-3% of the total sale price that would mean $509,250 would need to be spent to get that $675 bonus. That is a lot of money spent (even though its including your sign ups) to get $675. No one is getting rich of this idea.

    1. Wrong again, if you need mathematics here they are. With 2% Loyalty discount you need turnover 262,500 $, at the moment our average Loyalty discount is 3% that means for paying out you need turnover of 175,000 $. Another mistake in the comment is that this turnover is not made only from your directs and in-directs but from the whole network. For example 200 members in your downline which are making 1000$ turnover monthly for food, gasoline, clothes and all the other daily necessities will make 200,000$. Once again card is free and every member gets 1-2% immeadietly.

  18. Dear ones, recently i asked the belgium support about lyoness as called an investment on the day i’ve got involved and explained by the person who signed me up . If you don’t build a business it will be a good investment as well , has been told to me. WIthin 6-7 years it will be 16000 euro. Anyway, i thought , a legal investment with that roi and a big company legally involved in many country’s… . For my own safety i can’t say no more , believe me. these people are making me feel uncomfortable but it feels so wrong that i got messages with different content and things like that. Call me stupid , i trusted some people and when they have your money , you are fooled.

    Now the belgium support told me that it isn’t an investment at all… when you build up a business and SIGN UP people you can earn money. that’s the idea to make money to find others to sign up , after all and it isn’t an investment so far . I call this manipulating people to make something happen or otherwise you lost your money as an INVESTMENT. It’s mostly not the company that makes the thing bad looking but the people who work for this one. I never did this if it wasn’t an investment… . Now whoever got involved with good promises , don’t believe it. When you want to make money, you’ve gotta work for it in a way you like.

    greetings and happy holidays
    good health for 2013


    1. We are doing only advanced payment on our future purchases in Lyoness Loyalty partners. And with your shopping and shopping of your downline you will get sooner or later 16.572 euros.If you form your team of premium members you will get it faster. We are not investment fund. Also you are wright people who are saying that this is an investment are the ones who are making our company to look bad. You should report this person to Lyoness office. Also we are not employed by Lyoness , we are just developing it for the sake of the whole mankind and ofcourse for our sake.

      ONE FREE TIP from me, before signing as a premium member and start building your own Lyoness shopping comunity.
      Choose the Right Person who will give you the right info and support.It is the same when you start any other kind of business.

    2. As Nikola stated, it is totally inappropriate to identify Lyoness as an Investment.
      This is a shopping group and to empower our group to get more discounts, one may do Pre-Payments for future shopping. This money however can be used for shopping if you so decide to. If you speak with your Lyoness Office they will explain you on how to do it. There is no such thing as loosing the money you used to do those pré-payments for future shoppings.
      And you don´t earn money by just enrolling new people.
      You earn money without enrolling no on.
      When you shop you earn money on the form of discounts, which instead of being given in the form of points or stars to be used on the same Merchant you made the buy, it´s in the form of money which is sent to your bank account.
      Of course that if you enroll people and they shop on our Loyal Merchants, then you get more money.
      Again, you don´t earn money on enrolling people, you earn money when the people you enroll do their shopping on our Loyal Merchants (LMs). Having said this, if you enroll people which never shops on the LMs, you earn nothing, apart from what you get form your own shopping on LMs.

  19. We are building strong in Seattle, Washington and north of there. Contact me if you’d like to learn how to turn your expenses into financial assets!!

  20. Whoever wants to learn more and especially how it helps business, i can talk you with numbers. I am an owner of two stores and i can share to you my very good experience in Europe. India is a great opporunity for those who start now.
