    I spoke to MooLaLa this morning about this deal and they are doing some research. it looks like a MLM scheme.

    I was very interested in it myself as we like to eat organic. I wanted to find out where the food was coming from and what their practices are. I couldn’t find any of that information. But I did find information about it being an mlm scheme and about people spending money and getting nothing in return.

      I did some more research and it doesn’t look like MyOrganicAcres is an MLM to me at all. MLM sites usually just encourage you to pay money to start your own business to sell the product, whereas MyOrganicAcres.com says nothing about signing up to sell their product and only has product for sale on their site. They do not, however, have much information about their products.

      MooLaLa.com is a reputable company, by the way — very similar to Groupon, etc.

        My worries are with MyOrganicAcres, not MooLaLa. I spoke directly to MooLaLa this morning and they are researching MyOrganic Acres further.It appears as though MyOrganicAcres is an MLM and I have read several reports online of people ordering from them and not receiving any product.For my family, I am sitting this one out.

    It does sound too good to be true. The link never comes up anyway, so I am not going to bother.

  3. Joy says

    I’m not sure I understand how this is a scheme. Can you be any more specific? Are you suggesting MooLaLa isn’t a legit site? Or is something else going on here?

    • Dsperin says

      I think what Melissa is saying is that MooLaLa is offering this deal via another company. The “other” company may or may not actually send out the product to purchasers. MooLaLa receives a piece of the money, and the “other” company gets the rest. Essentially–a pyramid scheme.

          • Kristine says

            Groupon, Living Social, MooLaLa, etc., are group-buying sites, and they are not the same as MLMs or pyramid schemes that try to recruit salespeople and require them to pay start-up fees to start their own distribution businesses and recruit more salespeople.

            It’s unfortunate that there are so many rumors being thrown around here without any evidence. This deal does not at all sound too good to be true. In fact, I got a similar deal on organic produce from Door to Door Organics through Groupon a few weeks ago.

          • Becky says

            I also bought the Door to Door Organics Groupon. I wish I could remember how much it cost, but retail was something like $37. I can’t imagine that I spent more than $15 on it, & the produce was great!

      • Joy says

        Yeah, I get what a pyramid scheme is. I just don’t understand how people think this is one. I just hate to see a bunch of accusations thrown around that aren’t backed up by any facts. I was just asking for clarification on why she thought this was a scheme, because she didn’t give any details about what worked her or why she thought it sounded fishy in the first place. It doesn’t look like a scheme to me at all. Just looks like a good deal on organic produce.

        • Jessica says

          If you google the company some stuff comes up about an MLM where you buy land and Organic Acres plants whatever vegetables you want and then they are supposed to send the finished product to you but never do. I think that is where the fishiness is coming from, but I don’t see how this can be a scam since it is on a reputable site and you can order these boxes not land on the OA site.

  4. Stefany says

    I’d like more details too please, this looks like a good deal to me for the box of veg/herbs?

  5. Stefany says

    the only thing I noticed is the deal is for the Sampler box which is valued at “Harvest Fresh Herb/Veggie Sampler Box
    $39.95 plus $10.00 shipping.” not $70 :S

  6. Lorrie says

    I hope this deal does not cause issues. I was able to get through and ordered my coupon. I thought it seemed a bit strange, but since I had seen it on more then one reputable coupon site I thought it was ok. I hope my credit card info is not stolen.

  7. vicky says

    I am off work today and guess I am bored, b/c did search on this even though I wasn’t interested enough in this deal to buy :-) Whether this actual deal is legitimate, I don’t know. Based on what I read I would be hesitant to try it. The major part of their company has lots of complaints of people losing money and it possibly being mlm (pyramid) scheme. Only info I have is what I googled. Never heard of company before today. Decided to post b/c this site has helped me a lot and this may be helpful. Might want to do own research especially if planning on buying several gift boxes.

    • Dsperin says

      Thanks for the info. I was hesitant just because getting produce in the mail seems weird to me (I’d rather select my own perishables).

  8. vicky says

    Since some were asking, I will attempt to explain about how can be mlm. It appears the major part of what myorganicfarms does is basically sell or lease (not really sure correct way to phrase) land that they plant whatever organic veg you choose and then you can either have delivered to you or sell goods to others. Sounds good in theory. Where mlm part comes in is that you provide names of people to sell more to and make money based on who signs up under you, too. You also provide names of people to purchase the goods which seems okay actually. Anyway, that is my limited understanding and I may not have details completely right, but think I have concept correct. moolala seems like good company, however, so this may be fine to order through them. I would guess they have some kind of guarantee.

  9. says

    I understand that a great deal of people are worried about losing their money in this deal, but if we are all going to post throwing words about like MLM and pyramid scheme, let’s differentiate between the two. They are NOT the same thing.

    An MLM is usually referred to as a direct sales business: Mary Kay, Avon, Scentsy. These are real people selling real products with good intentions.

    A pyramid scheme inovolves promising people money when they enroll others, but does not actually deliver on any products.

    For the sake of those of us running our own business with a direct sales company, let’s use the correct terms, please!

    Thank you!

      Hey Heather,

      Thanks for clarifying this.

      While Organic Acres does offer an affiliate program, you’re not obligated to take part in it in order to take advantage of this promotion.

      Feel free to contact us if you have any questions at support@moolala.com.

    Thanks for the heads up everyone. I don’t know if it is worth the headache if this doesn’t turn out to be legitimate.

      See Jon’s comment below for further clarification from MooLaLa.com. As always, though, do what you feel is best for your family!

  12. Katie says

    If you have concerns, maybe you should contact Moolala. We had a Groupon for reduced priced movie tix this past fall that required the buyer to get a code from Weekly Cinema. After getting the code, the buyer was then supposed to be able to purchase the tix for the movie theater. Well, Weekly Cinema went out of business, so myself and others had to get refunds from Groupon. It was aggravating bc the daily deal sites can’t guarantee a deal. It also made movie tix only $5 each( for up to a $14 tic)– very disappointed about losing that deal.

    • Shirley says

      Thank you for taking the time to address everyone’s concern. I myself think it is a excellent deal.
      Also, it does state the produce is shipped in coolers. Thank you Crystal for sharing the deal as well. With grocery prices on the rise, as well as gas prices, free shipping on organic produce is very exciting!

  15. Cheri says

    I agree with those that are wary of this deal also. The deal does not say that shipping is included. It says $19, plus shipping.

    • says

      Shipping is included. The “Plus Shipping” in the title means that shipping is included. It’s a $70 value — which includes the price of the box ($59.95) plus shipping ($10).

      I hope that helps!

      • Cheri says

        Thanks for the clarification. That confused me. I guess I need some caffeine, lol.

        I’ll be looking for feedback on how this deal went for everyone that ordered. There are over 3,000 that have been ordered now!

  16. Sarah M. says

    Just a heads up that the price you are quoting 59.95 + 10 for shipping isn’t for the sampler box, it’s for the bigger box that has 40 servings. The sampler box is 20 servings and is 39.95 plus 10 for shipping. The smaller (cheaper) box has the word “sampler” in it, the larger (more expensive) doesn’t.

    • says

      They say it’s a $70 value, so I’m pretty sure it’s the larger box since the sampler box on MooLaLa had 40 servings — 20 of vegetables and 20 of herbs. I hope that helps!

  17. Liz says

    Does anyone where my organic acres is based? I was thinking of ordering but was curious if it would be shipped all the way across the country…

  18. Jessica says

    I hope this is legit, I figured for $19 I would try it. My only concern was why don’t we have access to the voucher before June 11th? Why do we have to wait over a month?
