Is Motor Club of America Legit?

Is Motor Club of America legit? It depends on who you ask. Some people see it as shady because it's a multi-level marketing system; the answer to "Is Motor Club of America legit?" for them would therefore be "no." Other people are okay with multi-level marketing systems; the answer to "Is Motor Club of America legit?" for them would therefore be "yes."

So let's break it down and take a look at the fine lines. You're looking for the making-money side of things, right? First of all, if you're reading this post and asking if Motor Club of America is the real deal, I'm assuming you're asking about the business side of MCA. Motor Club of America has a wide span of auto services, such as roadside assistance and travel reimbursements, and that part of the equation seems to be legitimate. The company has been around since the '20s and it provides a a travel-related product. It's the making-money side of Motor Club of America (MCA) that makes people unsure. Let's take a look at that side. Does it look suspicious to you? Well, if you're like any normal human being, you might think something looks out of place. If you do a Google search, you'll see a lot of results like, "Is Motor Club of America a scam?" Not a good sign. If you do a YouTube search, you'll see a lot of people flashing money at you as proof that MCA is legitimate. I'm not necessarily saying MCA isn't legitimate, but you've heard the saying, haven't you? If it's too good to be true... it probably is? This, for example, might at least make you suspicious:

The examples go on and on. And when you see a lot of stuff like that, you should be cautious. So let's take a deeper look into why people have a lot of questions about MCA. Is Motor Club of America a pyramid scheme or a multi-level marketing operation? Some people would call MCA a pyramid scheme. Some will say it's a multi-level marketing operation. It might be hard to tell. What's the difference, anyway? A pyramid scheme promises payments and services to get money from people, who are then told to market to other people to make money. A multi-level marketing operation is designed to sell more product. See the difference? A pyramid schemes operate on thin air. The way they make money is by getting you to give them your money and telling you to make money from getting other people to give you money. Do you see how vague that is? You have to be vague. You're just buying promises and talk, nothing real. A multi-level marketing operation is supposedly different because it's supposed to be there to sell an actual product. This is what allows a lot of operations that look like pyramid schemes operate under the notion of being legal. In short, pyramid schemes are illegal, and multi-level marketing operations are legal. So, what is Motor Club of America? Is it legitimate? This answer is simple: Motor Club of America is technically a multi-level marketing operation because it's selling a product. It's selling roadside assistance packages. Pyramid scheme or not, MCA is making a smart move because it's backed up by a company that's been offering roadside assistance for a long time. So let's make the question clear. If we ask "Is Motor Club of America legit?" and mean, "Is Motor Club of America legal?" ... the answer is yes, Motor Club of America seems to be legal. Or, is it that when we ask "Is Motor Club of America legit?" we're asking whether MCA is shady or not? Ah, well... that's a different story. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="459"] Lots of speculation on YouTube if Motor Club of America is legit. Might be a sign that you should know what you're doing before joining.[/caption] The shadiness factor: How exactly do you make money from MCA? Basically, you make money from MCA by selling Motor Club service plans to other people. That's the gist of it. The catch is, at the same time, you need to be paying for your own Motor Club service plan. In the end, you're not just acting as a salesperson who makes a commission. You're also contributing to the big MCA pot as well. And this is what gives MCA its pyramid-scheme flavor. It might feel like you're paying MCA for the right to sell their product. Technically, however, you are paying for a service (MCA's roadside assistance, etc.). This is why MCA can run an operation that might look like a pyramid scheme and call it a multi-level marketing operation instead. [caption id="attachment_77" align="alignnone" width="797"] Motor Club of America compensation chart.[/caption] So, you have to know that right away, you will have negative cash flow each month. You pay for the Motor Club service monthly, so every month you will be paying a certain amount to stay in the game. Here's something you should know about MCA: If you hit it big, you could hit it really big. But probably 99% of people fail to make any money from MCA. If you combine this fact with the fact that many people feel like they're paying MCA for the right to sell MCA packages, you can understand why a lot of people call this whole thing shady. So maybe you can say that MCA is demoralizing, because it might be difficult to get people to sign up with you and you're under a constant time pressure to make sales. If you've read this post, you know what you're getting yourself into. End verdict: Is MCA legit? I think we've fleshed out the question pretty thoroughly. Yes, MCA seems to be legitimate. But it doesn't rely on a business model many people are comfortable with. Also, an important question to ask yourself before you start is whether you're willing to put in an extraordinary amount of effort to sell MCA services while still paying out of your own pocket for your own MCA service. My advice: Make sure you consider all angles before signing up! Be smart about it. Anyway, I hope this helped! Let me know what you think in the comments below.

What is Motor Club of America anyway?

So let's start at the basics.

You might be asking yourself, "What is Motor Club of America?" Obviously, it sounds like it has something to do with cars (and, yes, it does). But there's so much misinformation swirling around about what Motor Club of America (MCA) is. Let's settle down and answer the question, then. What is Motor Club of America, anyway? Well, the short answer is: It depends on who you ask. Let's break it down. Answer #1: MCA is a roadside assistance, etc. program This is the official explanation of what MCA is. If you ask someone who's primarily concerned about making sure they don't get stuck on the side of the road with no help, this is what they'll tell you. Basically, what MCA's roadside assistance is, is if something happens to your car while you're out somewhere driving, they'll send someone out to help you. Maybe you locked your keys in your car, for example. Or your car battery died. You know? Basic stuff like that. MCA also offers towing up to 100 miles. If you've ever heard of AAA roadside services (more commonly known as Triple-A)... Motor Club of America is something similar. Depending on what level of benefits you want, you can select from three different plans: MCA Total Security ($19.95 a month) MCA Total Security Gold ($29.99 a month) MCA Total Security Platinum ($39.99 a month) Of course, the higher-level plans give you more benefits. By the way, don't forget that if you want to sign up for a plan, you have to pay two months in advance. So say you want the MCA Total Security Platinum plan. The first time you order it, it will come out to $79.99 for two months instead of one month. MCA isn't limited only to roadside assistance, however. They also offer a range of services from bail bonds (it's basically money to keep you out of jail if you get a moving traffic violation), credit card protection (if your credit cards get lost or stolen), emergency reimbursement benefits (helps cover the costs of emergency room visits), and other benefits. This is the page where you can learn more about the service. Most of the time, their services will be based on travel needs. So if the question is, "What is Motor Club of America?" -- this covers the roadside benefits side of MCA. Here's another answer. Answer #2: MCA is a way to make money Yup, it's possible to make money through MCA, and I'm willing to bet most people are mostly interested in this option. The next question is, how does the make-money side work? So remember how we talked about the roadside assistance benefits? The way you'd be making money through MCA is by selling Motor Club of America plans to other people. You can become a Sales Associate by signing up directly through MCA or by signing up through other people. Basically, it works like this: Say in one week you get one person to sign up for MCA. What will happen then is you will get a "commission advance" of $80. If you get more people to sign up per week, you'll get a higher "commission advance." Say if you get 10 people to sign up in a week, you'll receive a commission of $84 per person. So that would come out to $84 x 10 = $840. (See the chart below.) And then when you get people to sign up through you, you'll make money whenever they get other people to sign up for MCA as well. So that's the basic idea of how you make money through MCA. You get people to sign up, and you make money whenever they sign up. Whenever they get people to sign up, you make money as well. Of course, the next question someone might ask is, "Is this a multi-level marketing scheme?" The answer to that would be, yes. I'll write a post on that later. Also, another question might be, "Is MCA a scam and/or is MCA illegal?" and the answer to that is no, MCA is technically not a scam, and it is legitimate. I'll write a post on that, too. The very next post I will write, though, will go into the nitty-gritty elements of signing up for MCA and becoming an associate. There is much more ground to cover! I hope this post helped clarify the question, "What is Motor Club of America?" Later, I'll dive into more aspects of MCA. Stay tuned.

MCA Motor Club Review

I present to you my humble MCA Motor Club review! I'm referring to, of course, Motor Club of America (MCA). Is it worth joining?

Well, first of all, if you're reading this post, I'm assuming you're looking at the business side of MCA. The first thing you should know is MCA is a multi-level marketing company. Is that a bad thing? Well, not necessarily. But there are things about multi-level marketing companies that you should know. How you'll be making money Basically, you make money from MCA by selling Motor Club service plans to other people. That's the gist of it. The catch is, at the same time, you need to be paying for your own Motor Club service plan. This is part of why MCA is a multi-level marketing company -- because people who make money from it are really making money only if they get OTHER people to join as well. So, you have to know that right away, you will have negative cash flow each month. You pay for the Motor Club service monthly, so every month you will be paying a certain amount to stay in the game. There is a positive side to this, though. If you're able to sell enough Motor Club service packages to other people, you'll make enough not only to cover your own subscription, but also make a nice profit on the side. And once you get people to sign up, you'll make money whenever they get other people to sign up as well. Is Motor Club of America legit? Does this sound like an illegal pyramid scheme? Well, technically, it's not illegal. Why's that? Because Motor Club of America is providing a service (roadside assistance). It's not just getting people to sell thin air. I won't sugarcoat things, though. Making money from Motor Club of America is not easy. You have to be very driven and dedicated. I'd say the vast majority of people who sign up through MCA fail. That's due to a combination of factors. They might not be experienced in marketing MCA. They might not have the drive to succeed. They might just be targeting the wrong people when they're selling subscription plans. If you hit it big with MCA, you will hit really big, but if you're not willing to put in a lot of work to make it happen, then obviously you shouldn't bother. You're just wasting money every month. So, all said, my MCA Motor Club review can be wrapped up by this: Yes, it's legitimate, but you really have to know what you're doing before you jump in! If you're not willing to put in a LOT of work, don't join. Otherwise, best of luck!
