What is Cutco at Home?
Cutco at Home is a party program geared toward adults who love Cutco. Cutco at Home, which launched in January 2015, is the newest division within the Cutco family.
What does Cutco offer?
Cutco offers a wide variety of kitchen cutlery, gadgets, cookware, outdoor knives and gardening tools.
Is Cutco at Home a pyramid scheme?
Simply stated: No. Quite the contrary actually. In a pyramid scheme, the company creates a payment structure where the salespersons most profitable route is to recruit other people (not sell product). In certain instances, the bottom salespeople actually lose money on the venture, through startup costs, inventory purchases, activation fees, etc. Cutco is an active member of the Direct Selling Association, and both frequently support anti-pyramid scheme legislation in Congress.
Cutco at Home pays you a higher commission on YOUR sales than it does on the sales of your recruits. Now, its important to remember that while Cutco Cutlery has been around for 68 years, Cutco at Home is the newest division within the Cutco family. Were focused on building it into something great, and we cant do that without getting the word out to more potential Specialists. So in addition to commission on your personal sales, you are paid a reduced commission on the sales of those who you bring onto your team. Also, at no point will Cutco at Home charge you any startup fees or force you to purchase or carry inventory to sell. We even let you borrow the sample kit for free, and you can keep it as long as you sell $300 per quarter, so theres no cost to join the program whatsoever. By the way, once youve reached $1500 in career sales, that borrowed kit becomes yours, for free, forever!
