R Network Review The Facts You Need To Know [Scam or Legit?]

r network direct marketing companyNow we all know that the make money online section is thwart with companies that have been shut down or never even started up properly after taking huge amounts of sign up fees from people. Recently, I came across a new kid on the Multi-level marketing block, R Network, I was intrigued and thought I would investigate and find out more about this company as they were totally unknown to me.

In my R Network review, you’ll discover the facts you need to know.

Whether R Network is a scam or a legitimate opportunity to make serious money.

They state they are not just another direct marketing company well let’s go and see if they are right.

Quick Stats

Overall Rating – 5 out of 10

What is R Network

Okay, let us kick off this review by explaining more about what R Network actually is.

R Network isn’t selling your normal, lotions, potions, health, and diet pills, well there’s a plus! In fact, it’s difficult to know what they are selling until you dive a lot deeper into the company.

The idea is that R Network will help you make money when you help other people save money. Sounds like an easy ride as most people would like to save money if their life. I am always looking at ways to save money.

Meet The Creators

the creators of R network

Although we have an image and some great information on their feats within the MLM and financial sector, they are not named. Not sure why you wouldn’t want your name associated with these great achievements that have been given to us.

I did do some research I have found two names that apparently are connected to the launch of R Network they are Richard Smith and Trent Walker neither are known to me, but are probably well-known is their own niche or were associated with some of the best network marketing companies.

Some accreditation s giving to the 5 brothers as they are known (they are not brothers by the way)

  • They are all married 100 years in total and counting.
  • Over 46 years of MLM experience (This doesn’t mean they were successful of course)
  • $800 million of products moved through MLM in nearly every country in the world (that works out 3.4 million for each of them per year of experience) This seems very high but we will have to run with the figures for now.
  • 11 successful companies that they have been associated with a 1 Billion turnover. That’s two and a bit each!
  • 80 years of entrepreneurship between them. This doesn’t mean a lot of course
  • 28 years of experience working in 3 Fortune 500 Companies (These are there day jobs of course)
  • These are just the highlights you can read the full list on the R Network website.

Please note that Charter membership is by invitation only


R Network Products

As I have already reported they are not going to selling the run-of-the-mill multi-level marketing products. Looks like their only product currently is the revolutionary Revv Card. This is a payment card that is attached to your existing card. By using the Revv card you can claim discounts at your favorite retailers. You can also use the same card when you make normal purchases too.

r network revv card

This means that you don’t have to make unwanted product purchases every month and you don’t get involved with shipping or maintaining the stock. So, yes a different concept to the normal MLM business.

They are currently partnered with over 300,000 businesses, hotels, restaurants, and retail stores including big names such as Hilton, Marriott, Dominoes, and Subway. Being partnered is another way of saying you can use the card at these establishments but isn’t that the idea or have a missed something here.

You just pay as you normally but using your Revv card and then earn points that you can redeem in other outlets or in cash via ATM machines. You can add all your different cards to the one Revv card so no need to carry a wallet full from now on.


The one thing that would concern me is how secure is the card especially if it was lost or stolen. They have answered this with plenty of techy security including biometric fingerprints, GPS, and a Cellular chip. The thing is why are these not already in use with your normal cards?

I suppose only time will tell on this one and if it becomes a household payment system only then will scammers get involved.


Like all MLM models sharing the opportunity is where the real money is earned. Unfortunately, this is where most people come unstuck and why I chose affiliate marketing verses network marketing .ย  Maybe this will bring me back!

When you share this opportunity with others is of course where the power of generating an online income comes in. So let’s dive into the compensation plan and see how different it is from any of the other players in the network marketing industry.

All you have to do is become a Charter Member to obtain a Revv Card.

Just one issue with this is the card is not going to be available till early in 2020. Hum, could this be one of these take your money and run companies never to really launch… but I am keeping an open mind at the moment.

The Rewards Network

In addition to the Revv card, members will get access to a discount vacation booking portal. So much for being a unique player in the MLM space. This mirrors other companies like World Ventures.

R Networks Compensation Plan

Firstly before we get into what you can earn let’s go through what it is going to cost you first. After some searching, I found a reference to a $38 monthly subscription I am presuming this is the only cost involved which does seem rather cheap for an MLM business.

If you refer others who join as a charter member then you get a one-off $25 commission plus further commissions every time they shop using their Revv card.

There were very little details about the compensation plan but I did manage to find a few snippets of information tucked away on the website. It is saying they use an auto-fill 3×10 matrix which means you have 3 people on your first level and the matrix goes down 10 levels.

This is where you can position yourself, funny they always say that when they are just launching to get people in. Getting people to become founder members is used quite a bit in order to gain members before the launch. Like I previously mentioned beware, of this tactic as many companies fail to even launch and people lose their money.

What I Like About R Network

  • Everybody loves to save so if I can earn while saving I am all for that, and so will others be.
  • I like the concept just don’t know if it will earn you enough money, you are talking really small percentages.

What I Am Concerned About

  • The level of commission is unknown so its probably going to be small so you would need hundreds of people to sign up to actually earn anything substantial
  • I don’t like the idea of only getting paid a one-off $25 per referral, you are doing all the work and the company is making all the money
  • Not keen on monthly subscriptions where after the first month there’s no added value. At the moment I can’t see any ongoing value to keep paying monthly.
  • The card itself is not yet launched I would wait until it is up and running and everything is working before parting with any cash.

    UPDATE:- July 2020

    I am still hearing stories that RNetwork has yet to launch their Revv card. With it taking this long I would be looking to get my membership money back and certainly would avoid for now.

  • The owners are not openly named on the website which is a concern, this is one of the red flags I would look for when looking for scams. Read the article a few paragraphs up about what is a scam!
  • Direct sales businesses are always difficult especially if they are just starting up. The problem is most of these new businesses fail within the first couple of years. I would always join an established company if I wanted to go down this route.

Read this article to check out some of the best network marketing companies to join.

Should You Join R Network

Although I like the concept I would certainly hold off and wait until at least the card is released. Also, it would be great to have more information on the 3×10 matrix and the potential earning power of this.

They are of course urging you to get your position in the matrix, which seems weird as they don’t give you any details about it on the website. Would you pay for something without seeing it… No!

There are many ways to make money on the internet I currently would recommend avoiding RNetwork. Read on to discover how I make money every month.

An Alternative

For me, I will be sticking to affiliate marketing as it gives me the passive income I desire without having to rely on others to do things for me.

If you have not heard of affiliate marketing it is recommending other companies’ products and services. When customers buy the product you get a commission. Simple! Read my affiliate marketing for beginners complete tutorial on how to get started!

20 thoughts on “R Network Review The Facts You Need To Know [Scam or Legit?]”

  1. It’s good that you recommend Wealthy Affiliate than this R Network. I share the same sentiment with you that people should not easily trust any company that withholds identity of the operators or owners of the company as it is a sign that the company is not “all out” with their integrity. Also, be wary of network marketing companies that do not divulge their compensation plan, as it is also a sign of being not transparent. 

    By the way, how did you learn about this company? Did you join as a member or affiliate?

    • Thanks for your comment Gomer, I found out about it via my Facebook group as another member was promoting it so I thought I would take a look. 

  2. Dear Martin,
    I have read your review to see what you know about rNetwork.
    You know some details but not all of it.

    The Discount Rewards portal is already included in your back office and it does not only have a hotel portal but a lot more from local shops in the USA which you can easily find in it.

    Thanks for your time

    • Rnetwork has nothing except Entertainment coupons and some free concierge services. Supposed to go public and if youโ€™re a founder you will get shares in the company. They have zero to very little revenue so whatโ€™s the point? Said they bought 20 some banks and later said they partnered with a bank. There is no proof of any bank or banks. The rev card is not out yet saying something that they donโ€™t have the technology yet. Did increase membership to $50.00 a month . people are making money for signing up others. Sounds like a pyramid.

      • Ann it sounds like RNetwork is going to be shut down especially if all they have is referring others. If you are still looking to earn money online then check out the no1 recommendation that is earning me several hundred dollars a month and growing all the time.

  3. I did end up signing up because of a friend however now I want to cancel and can’t see any way to do it. help would be appreciated.

    • Use there support tab and send them an email to close your account

  4. i did signup and got my neighbor to sign up. You have only 30 days to get at least 3 others to sign up which will give you your membership free. The problem with that is, i had a HARD, time getting people to sign up! people just did not like the idea of having to get other people signed up to save money. After my 30 days was up, i had to pay to 38 bucks again, and would for the duration if i stayed a member. As for the other shops on the web site on the “back office portal” they did not work. An error comes up saying the site has not opened yet, on every single offer i tired. They even had a coupon on their for Hobby Lobby for 40% off. You can get those on the internet for free.

    • Thanks for sharing your experience with Rnetwork this will certainly help others make an informed choice before they commit.

  5. My husband is always looking at ridiculous get rich scams and this is NO different so beware! I was happily paying Consumer Cellular monthly when he says we’re switching to “r mobile”. What a joke! I feel so sorry for the thousands that switched! First of all you could hardly get the “concierge” to call. Then they LIED and said they “partnered” with Sprint, which is completely false. Anyone can walk in and get the same deal. Then repeatedly we tried to get the concierge to call back because you HAVE to go through them. So anyway we canceled with r mobile and did the same deal with Sprint and now, finally have customer service! Don’t fall for another scam. So sick of them and their lies and my husband’s gullibility in them!

    • Thanks for your comments Linda, I am glad you are sorted again now. Unfortunately, your husband will not be the only one to get scammed but at by voicing our opinion, it may stop someone from joining.

  6. Please update your review. There was a big announcement last week about prescription and travel benefits. I checked it all out and discovered the discounts are also available through direct websites. The prescription program is linked to the same company that sponsors GoodRX. The rev card will not be free. It will cost members $100, and non-members $150. I don’t see any advantage to having the card. Since there is no card yet, this company isn’t really giving you anything in exchange for the $38 a month. Until they have an actual physical product it is no more than a pyramid scheme. By the way, there is also a one-time enrollment fee of $30. Your first month costs is $68. The monthly fees will soon go up to $49.99. The sales pitch at the recruitment meetings includes a blurb of how the creator’s are already millionaires and are just doing this to help other people. Where have I heard that before? Make an informed decision.

    • Great information Erma, thanks for sharing your experience with RNetwork it’s valuable that we help as many people as we can ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. The merit of this MLM company as a money maker, as with all new ventures, is yet to be determined. One of the concerns that always bothers me is the fact that they, most often, are not authorized to do business in the states where they recruit associates. I noted in the comments that there is a person seeking a refund. Whether you know it or not, the law does not protect people that due business with companies that are not authorized to do business in the state where complaints are filed. Bottom line, your ability to sue may be compromised if any company you do business with, as an associate, is not registered in your state.

    A word to the wise is sufficient. Before considering associating or doing business with any company, check that the company is in “good standing” in your state. The office of your secretary of state is generally where you can search for companies authorized to do business in your state.

    Caveat emptor!!!

  8. Hey Pals,
    RNetwork booming in India but we don’t know how it’s working in other countries. Can anyone help me with this how long we can trust this network marketing.

    • Thanks for your information, so is everything up and running in India and they are paying out money?

  9. Well i have read your review about rnetwork. and yes someone said this plan is booming in India that’s also true… this company has launched it’s compensation plan in India and that is really good…. rtravel has also been launched and i can book hotels and avail huge discount on that… my only concern is marketplace…. Since many companies in eCommerce platform are already there and doing a very good business.. like Amazon, Alibaba, Flipkart ..and so on…. Once i will see the marketplace then yes there are lot of chance to earn and since this is been introduce as a Participation Marketplace….. look for some more time and you will see what has been emerged into the market… thats also true that we all have misunderstood of Amazon’s concept in beginning …. we all should wait and watch…

    • Thanks for these updates, maybe its starting t move in the right direction, like you say let’s wait and watch
