AndThanks2U Review: Why You Should Stay Away

I came across AndThanks2u on the net. This program is very similar to the Feeder Matrix. Generally, it is a matrix system that claims because they have a product it’s not a gifting system.

I’m highly against businesses like these because to join these types of matrix systems the fee is minimal, but the consequences can outweigh the $2.50 fee.

These types of matrix businesses are on the rise. You may have seen Matrix types of business models on social network sites.

I hope you’re doing your research on sites like these before you join and if you are, I commend you for doing that. I want you to continue to keep reading this article about my AndThanks2U review and why you should stay away from joining this type of business model.

The Rundown

What is AndThanks2u?

  • AndThnks2u is similar to Feeder Matrix. it’s a matrix type business that you resell digital products to people you sign into the “business”.

How does it work?

  • It’s a matrix type business where you move up in stages and tiers. Once a person pays $2.50 to join the business, now that person is in stage 1 tier 1. Once you find four other people to join AndThanks2u and pay $2.50, you earn $10 and move up to tier 2. To give you a better idea, I will break it down into stages and tiers.

Stage 1

Tier 1 – Cost $2.50 get 4 people to pay $2.50 you get $10.00
Tier 2 – Cost $5.00 get 16 people to pay $5.00 you get $80.00
Tier 3 – Cost $10.00 get 64 people to pay $10.00 you get $640.00
Tier 4 – Cost $20.00 get 256 people to pay $20.00 you get $5,120

Stage 2

Tier 5 – Cost $100.00 get 2 people to pay $100.00 you get $200.00
Tier 6 – Cost $200.00 get 8 people to pay $200.00 you get $1,600.00
Tier 7 – Cost $500.00 get 32 people to pay $500.00 you get $16,000.00
Tier 8 – Cost $1,000.00 get 128 people to pay $1,000.00 you get $128,000

My Take

When I come across business models like these, it’s very tempting because it cost nearly nothing to join.

$2.50 is ten quarters that I can muster up easily. These matrix type plans make it sound really easy to do, but in reality, it’s very difficult.

Finding four people probably isn’t that hard, but think about it. When you explain the business model to people, many people are gonna question it and that is a challenge in itself.

You may get four people to join, then the four people you find have to find four people so you can get your money and move up a level.

When I did my research on AndThanks2U, you may discover that even though, a person made a buck on this stuff, it doesn’t mean it’s something you should do. I discover some details that you should consider before you join.

Let Us Research

I want to dig into why a person shouldn’t join a matrix type of business.

I’m not just gonna give you my opinion, I’m gonna give you some research that I did.

I know that it’s entirely your decision to join AndThanks2U or any other matrix business, but let’s cover some things that you should be aware of before you join.

Research One

The first thing I did was went to AndThanks2U Terms and Privacy page.

If you become a member, you opt-in to receive other emails from AndThanks2U.

If you don’t want to receive the emails you can cancel your membership.

The Admin of these matrix businesses doesn’t make money from the people that join these matrix systems.

The Admin has to make money some way so companies that do these type of business practices usually sell your information to make a profit or they are in the matrix.

Usually, people run to their friends and family and tell them about these types of businesses.

Some of these names are fresh to the Internet and the person running the matrix system has new names to sell to companies.

Research Two

Payment Method. These businesses usually ask you to open a PayPal account.

According to PayPal policies, they don’t allow Matrix-type businesses to transfer money to their accounts.

If you do that, you are subject to lose your account because of a $2.50 investment.

AndThanks2U PayPal Prohibits

On AndThanks2U website they recommend when you get to Stage 2 Tier 7, this blew me away, they suggest you use FedEx to transfer money.

OMG, is AndThanks2U asking their members to launder money? Isn’t that a Federal Offense? Did you read thanks to your motto?

  • Gratitude
  • Faith
  • Teamwork
  • Strategy
  • Success

Is anyone gonna have gratitude if they are in Federal prison?

Does the owner of this scam really care about you or do they care only about themselves?

You’re gonna ask 32 people to send you $500 through FedEx.

Why can’t you just do this through PayPal?

Because PayPal is going to investigate where is this large amount of money is coming from and how is this person getting this money.

Once PayPal finds out how a person violated PayPal’s rules, that person won’t get anything. PayPal is going to cease that person’s account.

That is why AndThanks2U is suggesting to use FedEx.

Research Three

What does the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) have to say about these types of businesses?

I read the FTC website. One thing I came across is that FTC gets millions of complaints daily about internet scams.

The FTC tries to educate people on what they consider scams and advises people not to join these types of businesses.

andthanks2you pyramid scheme

Even though these types of businesses hide behind a product, that doesn’t mean it is necessarily not a scam.

Think about the hoops and bounds you gotta go through to get your money and if it is even really worth it?

Don’t let people say this blah, blah stuff to get you to join a business that even the FTC warns people about.

If you think about it, the pyramid scheme business model really speaks for itself.

Are these companies really selling you a product that you really care about?

The main focus of these types of businesses is to get you to join and find others to join so you can make money.

It’s purely a gifting site that hides behind a “digital” product.

All In All

You probably will not read too many complaints about people losing their money from these types of sites.

Mainly because the initial start-up fee is something you can find in your coin purse or piggy bank.

These types of matrix businesses seem appealing and seem easy to do, but really finding people to join is very difficult.

You have to,

  • Find the people
  • Explain the business model
  • Have them open a PayPal account
  • Get them to get people to join
  • If a person quits you have to find someone else
  • Repeat the process

Hiding behind a product doesn’t mean it’s not a scam.

Companies that focus mainly on finding people to join something to get to the next level is a scam.

If you’re interested in making money online. There are lots of legal ways to do it one of the best services I came across is called Wealthy Affiliate.

  1. The Government make rules for the citizens to follow because the government has to control society, there must be a balance for society to function, for example if everyone was rich who will pick up you garbage. the amount of money people get is controlled for society to operate. I say this because the rules are made for this purpose only. With that being said there are still a lot of companies that has an mlm structure and are perfectly legal. good review!

    • You bring up a very valid point. I do agree the government does controls us financially and other ways. Especially if a person who relies on government funding. That is a system to keep you there and not go any further financially in life.

      I do believe it’s very difficult to reach the 1% status because a lot of people give up. At Wealthy Affiliate they give people a pathway to actually make a substantial living online. It’s not a get rich quick scheme either, it’s about building a business that can further you financially and a obtain a lifestyle a person wants.

      As for MLM business structure, it’s not one I advocate, as I was involved in a few. I’m sure there are legal ones, but I believe there are better structure pathways to get there. Sites like AndThanks2U are simply a gifting MLM/Matrix structure that hides behind a digital product that no one really is set out to obtain. If you look at Avon, they have products that people like and use and don’t really want to sell or be involved in the business. That’s a key point to look for when you get involved in an MLM business. Thanks for your thoughts, Evelyn.

  2. Thanks for the review! This is truly a product I won’t be going near anytime soon. Really appreciate you taking the time to go over this product in such depth.

    • Hey Peter, Thanks, this product I wouldn’t go near either. I don’t want to compromise my PayPal account on a small investment. Thanks for your comment, all the best, Evelyn.

  3. Hi, I was doing some researching on and came across your writing about that, and something new to me, which is this WA, well I’m amazed and is the payment in USD? I’ve saved this page so I can go back into it again. I am very interested even to learn how to create and have your own Website, well, well, Thanks.

    • Hey Tania,

      Someone try to invite me to AndThanks2U and when I did my research on this business and I said now way. Creating your own website and generating your own income online is the best way to go. Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to generate an income the proper way online and the support at WA is amazing. There is nothing out there better than this. Wish you all the best, Evelyn.

    • Hey John, Thanks, these matrix scams are on the rise. Glad you will be staying clear from them. Thanks for stopping by, Evelyn.

  4. Hey Evelyn

    What a wonderful review? Just went with the flow. Thanks for letting me know that these kind of business exist. I am totally against selling details to companies. It is good to see people like you are going above and beyond to make people aware of these kind of business do not exist. Just one question regarding compensation plan: for example Stage 1 tier 4m Is it compulsory that you have to get 256 people to get $5120? I mean can pull out your money if you only refer to say 20 people which is $400.


    • Thanks Biren,

      These matrix businesses are pretty scary. Yes it is compulsory that you have to get 256 people. What happens is, you stay on a waiting list until 256 people on your team get to tier 4. These people will each pay you $20.

      Being that you and your team has to get 256 people, makes it that much harder to reach each tier. That’s why I’m against businesses like these.

      If we did the math with Wealthy Affiliate, if I, just me got 256 people to go premium at WA, I would make $5760.00 each month. Not just one time and then move up a tier, I would have a recurring income each month plus a legal business that I don’t have to worry about PayPal ceasing my account.

      Thanks for asking a great question Biren, Evelyn.

  5. There seems to be quite a few of these scams popping up online lately. These complicated payment matrices with different levels of payments to “contribute” to the pot. I wouldn’t touch one these things with a 10 foot pole. Scam,scam,scam! Great job on this review by the way.


    • Hey Steve, Thanks! I know! These systems scams that I wouldn’t even call a business, is something people should stay clear away from. Thanks commenting and giving your view, Evelyn.
