Is ZamZuu a scam? Not really. But here's why you don't need ZamZuu to earn rebates shopping online.
The "ZamZuu Scam" is nothing more than a revamped version of the same online shopping model that has failed over and over and over again.
ZamZuu is an online shopping rebate program. Their program is the same rebate you can find on ebates, ocrebates, and several other sites that have been around a lot longer than the Zamzuu scam.
The reason they've been around is that they don't charge - they give the rebates away for free.
The ZamZuu compensation isn't about rebates. It's about reselling the ZamZuu shopping portal to other members. YTB Travel had the same model for their travel, before industry complaints made them look in other directions for revenue. You earn rebates on your own purchases, but you earn commission on the sale of the ZamZuu Shopping Site to other ZamZuu reps.
Cost to Join ZamZuu
The price for the ZamZuu shopping mall is $249 to sign up, plus $49.00 a month, every month, to keep your portal running. Bear in mind that these are replicated sites. They are activated at the flick of a button ( metaphorically. Usually it's automatic, at the press of a button when you enroll ).
The average online shopper earns about 3% back on purchases. For you to earn back just your monthly fee, you would need to spend roughly $1600 a month on your site to earn back the rebates just to cover your monthy expense.
Part of the pitch is that you refer your friends and family to your ZamZuu portal, and they shop and you earn the rebates on their purchases. What is their incentive to shop on your ZamZuu portal?
Lets say that you could get 16 friends and family to shop on your site and each spend $100 each month.
You would then earn $49.00 in ZamZuu commission ( or shopping rebates ) but you wouldn't have really earned a dime, since your cost of doing business is what you just took in.
Even if you had 32 friends and relatives shopping on your ZamZuu shopping site, you would still only earn $49.00.
That is so unlikely it borders on the absurd.
The only way to really make money on ZamZuu is by selling others on the idea that joining ZamZuu is a great idea and that you'll make a fortune having others shop in your ZamZuu shopping portal, so that they can go out and sell others on the idea of making a fortune with their portal, and so on.
