I came across The AZ Code today. And since it has to do with earning money as an Amazon affiliate, I took a closer look.
I’ll show you exactly what I found in this review, to help you decide if it’s legit.
My Full AZ Code Review
The Amazon Code website (theazcode.com) is supposedly run by “Andrew Peterson”.
However, I’m not so sure he’s even real.
Why? Well, he does not provide any photos or videos of himself for starters. Nor does he link out to any social profiles.
And whoever this is, uses an anonymous domain registration.
Now I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with this in and of itself.
The fact is, this alone does not make something a scam.
But it does mean that you are taking the word of an anonymous person. A person who claims to be making millions of dollars with Amazon.
In my experience, when the person selling you something uses a fake persona, it’s not a good sign.
Anyways, whenever I review something like this I always like to look at the promises made within the sales pitch. As in, what’s this person promising you and is their ‘proof’ credible?
So let’s take a closer look what “Andrew Peterson” has to say about The AZ Code…
3 Reasons Why The Sales Pitch Is Sketchy
There’s no getting around it. The sales pitch for The AZ Code is full of hype.
1) Making money as an Amazon affiliate is NOT that simple
When someone is trying to sell you on the idea of a ‘push button system’- run for the hills.
This is exactly what The AZ Code does too:
This is NOT the reality of how online business works.
Nothing is ever done for you. Regardless of whether you’re promoting Amazon products as an affiliate, or something else entirely.
It does not, and will never, happen at the push of a button. And it’s programs like this that are responsible for setting people up with false expectations of income.
Yes, you can earn $40k per month as an Amazon affiliate.
But it won’t happen by “plugging in” to some system.
Affiliate marketing takes real work if you want results. Period.
2) There is no explanation of how this really works
Andrew’s video does a great job of getting you excited. But nowhere does he explain HOW this system is going to be helping you.
Instead, he shows you some income screenshots and tells you it’s a “secret”…
This is a big red flag.
Anyone can copy and paste screenshots like that. There is zero proof he’s making ANY money at all online, let alone from Amazon. And if someone is asking for your money, they should absolutely explain what you are getting yourself into.
He does provide some testimonials though.
These are used as ‘proof’ the system is legit.
Unfortunately, they are not real as I will now prove to you…
3) The testimonials and income proof are 100% fake
Througout the sales pitch there’s some video testimonials from people supposedly making money with The AZ Code.
These testimonials are apparently from complete beginners who’ve never made money online before. And thanks to AZ Code they’re now making $10,000’s per month.
Here’s a few of the testimonials to show you what I mean…
I was able to find ALL of these people on a site called Fiverr. They are ACTORS who are getting paid to pretend like they are making money with this system.
Here is proof of what I am saying…
Ask yourself- why would ‘Andrew’ need to hire actors to provide testimonials?
I mean, if the system really is THAT great, then why are REAL people not sharing their results. It makes no sense.
This is something I see a lot within the ‘make money’ space. And in my experience, when a program resorts to these kinds of tactics, it’s not what it claims to be.
In any case, real people are not making $40k or more per month with The AZ Code.
And the same goes for the constant flashes of people’s earnings…
This is completely fake. Because there is no way these people know who is earning what inside of Amazon. This is confidential information that is only available to the affiliate and Amazon staff. So it’s impossible to know who “just made a commission”.
This is absolute nonsense. Plain and simple.
What’s The AZ Code Really About?
According to the video The AZ Code is a “secret system that can help absolutely anybody make up to $40k monthly in Amazon commissions”.
In other words, a push button way to become an Amazon super affiliate.
This is obviously not the real way this works. And if you’ve read this far, I’m guessing you are smart enough to know this.
Anyway, considering the sheer level of hype in the sales pitch, I chose not to buy this.
I’ve wasted more than enough money on BS programs over the years. Programs that promise quick and easy money, and that NEVR live up to that claim.
So I do not buy stuff like this anymore. I do not need to either. Since I earn a full time income as an affiliate and I know stuff like this (at best) is overhyped.
In most cases, it’s a generic training with very little value. You do learn some stuff, but nothing you can’t find online for free by reading a good blog on the topic.
What this is really about- is selling you on the ‘idea’ that making money online is easy with their system.
So the real people making money with this, are the people behind it. And the affiliates promoting it.
Also, if you think $37 is the end of it. Think again…
This is being promoted on ClickBank. And if you check out their affiliate page (www.theazcode.com/affiliates.html), it talks about how AZ Code affiliates can earn $199 per sale.
Which means you (as the customer) are going to be hit with upsells. In other words, right after you buy, ‘Andrew’ will ask you to buy MORE stuff. No thanks.
The GOOD News For People Who Buy
The good news about all of this is two fold.
First of all, making money on Amazon IS possible. As long as you bypass BS programs that are promising you overnight success, you can build a profitable business this way.
Second, The AZ Code is sold through ClickBank. Who is a reputable third party marketplace where people buy and sell digital products. Which means, you can get a refund for up to 60 days.
And the refund is solid. I know this first hand. ClickBank always honours a legitimate refund request. So this is a good thing for folks who have bought this and want their money back.
The AZ Code promotes the idea of ‘push button success’. Which is simply not the reality of affiliate marketing. I know this from personal experience.
This system is not a “secret” that allows you to make $40k monthly with Amazon. At least, not in a way that is as simple as tying your shoelaces!
With that being said, I did not buy this as I mentioned earlier. So it’s possible the underlying program does have some value. There must be some product or ClickBank would not allow it to be sold.
Most likely, it’s a generic beginner training on becoming an Amazon affiliate. In any case, this means that (in this respect) it’s not a scam.
That’s my take anyway. What you decide to do is up to you, but hopefully this review has been helpful. At the very least, showing you what not to expect- push button riches.
