MCA or, Motor Club of America has been in business since the 1920’s.  The above complaint suggests that they somehow “trick” you into purchasing the product…  It’s a monthly membership that offers discounts to the membership owner.  It’s $20 a month or, $240/ year.  Now let’s think about this for a second…  How much is the average cell phone bill monthly?  Anywhere between 30 to a couple hundred dollars depending on the package, right?  How much do you think you’re spending a year on your phone?  Now, when you are pleased with your cell phone service (I guess occasionally that happens…)  You tell your friends about it!  But wait!  Does your phone service give you a commission for referring customers???  Rarely if ever.  This is called, network marketing.  Most places will allow their customers to give them a great reputation via word of mouth, and not compensate them.  That is some great free advertizing you just did for your phone company!!!  Or your favorite restruant. Or that clothing store you like to shop at…

 Granted, some places offer customer rewards but you usually have to spend quite a bit of money right off the bat or have used the product for a specified time frame inorder to get the deal.  Once you become a member, MCA will compensate you for every referral.  So, if your refer someone the same day, of refer someone a month later- you will be compensated.  Sometimes people are hesitent because they don’t want to make money off their friends.  Well you’re not.  The compensation you receive is coming straight from the business its self.  You’re not directly making money off your friends and family when you refer them. Which is not the case in some other network marketing designs.  I’ve seen the word “pyramid” but that wouldn’t describe the way this business runs.  It’s more like a blanket sheilding it’s members from financial distress.  Whether that distress is the result of an accident, or flat tire, or compensation for a referral.  If you don’t want to sell the product once you become a member, you don’t have to.  But I encourage you to at least take a look at what the memberships offer.  For $20/ month, you have upwards of a 60% discount on monthly medications (AND there is a pharmacy department that will look up your medications and confirm where you can get them locally to you with the MCA discount), you have a customer service agent answering the phone (not a machine) 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week.  They even go so far as to tell you how many calls are ahead of you, and how long -if at all, you will be waiting to speak with a representative (i.e. an actual person).  That comes in real handy in case of an accident, in case you’re injured and you’re far from home.  They offer representation in case there’s a legal dispute resulting from an accident… Image
